Alexander Hamilton and a tuna melt

New York. The first time I went to New York was when I was seven on a family holiday. We arrived at the airport, were greeted by a stretch limo that took us to our accommodation, the very aptly named, ‘Quality Hotel’, and spent two weeks wading through the snow exploring every tourist trap we possibly could.

Being the ripe old age of 19, naturally, I thought I was more than old enough to organise, book, pay for and stay alive during this four-week trip around Central and Southeastern Europe. To help us on our way, my friend (Mandy) and I decided to purchase the...

A Royal Baby

A Royal Baby

At 05:26 on the 6th May 2019 the world became heavier by 7 pounds and 3 ounces due to the birth of another royal baby. Whilst watching the interview with Prince Harry after the birth and seeing how happy he was to welcome their little boy into the world, I started wondering; what is he going to be called?
