EDIT: I passed my driving test first time on January 25th 2018!!! Driving for me has always been something I have longed to do but never thought possible because of my physical limitations. But let me tell you...what these car adaptation companies can now do is amazing! I started the information and application process back… Continue reading My Adapted Vehicle Story
The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel is located in east London and I stayed here twice; both times for two nights instead of the usual one. I absolutely loved it! Probably one of the most relaxing and accessible hotels I have stayed at - and that is saying something with how specific I have to be.… Continue reading Access at the 5* Grange Tower Bridge Hotel – London
I stayed at the Hilton Angel Islington recently and was very pleased i tried out this hotel - it was definitely an experience! Trying to find fully accessible hotels in London is incredibly difficult, the constant emailing and phone calls to find out what hotels offer can become tiring whilst many don't actually advertise accessibility at all.… Continue reading Access at the Hilton Angel Islington – London
I stayed at this hotel for the first time back in 2014 for my end-of-year-one at university celebration weekend. This stay was complimentary as when I previously went, they were carrying out renovations and the 'wheelchair accessible' lift was smaller than my actual wheelchair! However, you live and you learn. On arrival, there is a… Continue reading Access at the Holiday Inn Express Southwark – London
It's frustrating how many hotels charge more for an accessible room because of the extra space required, even though sometimes I wish to have the same as anybody else (I'm guessing other disabled people may wish too?). Or the fact that there are limited types of rooms which are accessible for example; one hotel might… Continue reading Why i find hotels frustrating…
There is so much planning that goes into my trips to London ranging from access onto the trains, to hotels and whether they meet my needs, to venues or attractions and if they have disabled toilets. But whether these all work well is another matter! On the 4th January 2017, I took my first trip… Continue reading Zico in London!

On May 13th 2016, at the Coronet theatre in London, popular Korean boy group B.A.P performed here for the second time since debuting. The concert was absolutely amazing! I treated myself to the VIP ticket which included a Hi-5 with B.A.P at the end, early entry and a signed copy of their newest album. Although it… Continue reading B.A.P ‘Live on Earth’ – World Tour 2016
Back in October, I took a graduation celebration trip down to London for 2.5 day. One thing I've wanted to have done for so so long after seeing it often in the streets of London was to have a caricature drawing done of me. Walking (or driving) down Leicester Square, I had thought to myself 'I've wanted… Continue reading Caricature Drawing of Me! (Bucket List #19)
At the start of July 2016, I managed to tick off another item on my bucket list! Ordering room service is something I had wanted to do ever since I started travelling to London and was very very pleased to finally have achieved this 🙂 Both evenings, my carer and I were so exhausted that neither… Continue reading Room Service (Bucket List #17)

In 2013, i went to my very first concert ever and it just so happened to be a kpop concert with my favourite boy group performing. 27th of November around lunch time, we set off on the train towards London 🙂 Luckily there were no issues with the station staff supplying the ramp so the first… Continue reading Infinite ‘One Great Step’ – World Tour 2013
Loud music, screaming fans, bright lights, synched dancing, spectacular costumes. It’s the B.A.P concert everybody had waited for.

B.A.P came to London in April 2014 as part of… Continue reading B.A.P ‘Live on Earth’ – World Tour 2014
My second blog post will cover my love and passion for KPOP but also Korea itself; the culture, the amazing language and the food! I became a fan way back at the start of 2013 after stumbling across a drama episode on YouTube, *Boys Over Flowers* with the handsome Lee Min-Ho and Kim Hyun-Joong. At… Continue reading My love for South Korea
