How is it only *counts on fingers* three more Sunday's until Christmas Eve and since when did I need to have the heating on constantly and a thick pair of socks?

November has been the month of travel for me and boy doesn't my body clock (& bank balance) know about it? At the beginning of the month I celebrated a birthday milestone with Clink Hostels complete with a guided tour of Kings Cross. I headed on my first stateside trip to visit NYC with Mikhila which was an absolute dream come true trip and saw me get way too excited over seeing the (World Renowned) Plaza Hotel, posing outside of Tiffany's and weeping at the Statue of Liberty on the Statten Island Ferry.

On the 28th I head back to my favourite city of all time, Venice for some wintery walks, afternoons spent in coffee shops and discovering a few more corners of the city I've left unturned in my previous 7 trips..
