  • Essay Saturday: In Bruges
    scene A woman was lounging on the floor her tenderly rendered nipple all white and silver with traces of pink and blue and green floating underneath Sorry I was entranced by a silvery nipple I said to Rhi who thought I was behind her and had already exited the museum before back tracking to retrieve me as we made our way back into sunshine Later on that evening Rhi lay on her bed in her pjs What s happened to your toe nail I said pointing to a blackened bit at the end of one thinking she d bashed it Oh that s just old polish that s grown out It s indicative of my level of self care at the moment You think that s bad I actually did the nails on one feet once and then couldn t be bothered to do the other foot so I just left it for with one foot painted for weeks It was a crime what Rhi s job was doing to her She still hadn t sorted out the little toe on her other foot She thinks its broken and has to stick it down when she goes swimming or it flaps to the side in the current Couple to the right She s boxing above her weight no Couple over in the corner She s furious about something Rhian liked to do this spy on couple on restaurants and cafes before typing out a message on her phone and sliding me the screen I d be lying if I said I hadn t thought of how nice it would be if I was here in this most romantic of cities with a love interest instead of my dear friend Surely deep down Rhi and I knew we d swiftly ditch the other into the nearest canal should Mr Farrell come barrelling round the corner all guns blazing to sweep us off our feet And it would be no hard feelings But no I was having a great time and the pressure to be in love in one another s company has caused more than one romantic mini break to implode under the weight of its own expectations I thought back to the last one I attempted when I sat in a car crying next to my then boyfriend after realising our long weekend in The Peaks was going horribly wrong because well he didn t much like climbing hills I think we should go on the silent walk said Rhi on our last morning after our buffet breakfast at the Novotel It was actually called a silent walk in the guide book it wasn t just that Rhi was sick of the sound of my voice after three days and nights together Silent however was perhaps a misnomer as part of it was down a motorway Still it was lovely It was raining and the cobbles were gleaming Bruges a mossy tapestry all oldy worldy and quaint Look another church

  • Discovering the Charms of Rejuvenated Belfast
    has established its security as Northern Ireland became the safest region of the UK back in 2011 Such a turnaround in less than a decade is nothing short of miraculous and the renewed vim and vigour with which Belfast residents are instilled is evidenced in the rapid proliferation of bars restaurants and retail outlets around the city centre over the last few years Effortless accessibility great affordability One of the chief reasons that Belfast has seen such an upturn in its tourist fortunes of late is down to the infrastructure With cheap and regular flights from the UK available from sources like Flybe and a great network of road and rail connecting it to other major tourist hotspots such as Giant s Causeway and the seaside town of Bangor it s never been easier to get around the nation Furthermore Belfast becomes an even more attractive proposition when compared to its Irish counterpart Dublin in terms of economy While Dublin has endured a reputation of being an expensive city for many years now Belfast continues to offer a budget alternative brimming with opportunities Authenticity and character Whiling away the night in any traditional pub to the harmonies of violins and fiddles will give you a far more Irish experience than you ll find in a cheesy themed bar in some quarters of Dublin Similarly the down to earth friendliness of its residents affords a greater appreciation of British hospitality than a cold and impersonal London tour So whether it s getting lost in the annals of history along its pock marked streets soaking up the cultural vibrancy in a theatre or park or having an old fashioned sing song with the locals in an overcrowded tavern Belfast has something to offer every traveller This post was written in partnership with Flybe About Litro Online Mail Web More Posts 713 Comments comments Prev A Peek Into Britain s Drinking Culture Next Essay Saturday In Bruges Related Posts O Digba Ka Na Literary New York A Recommended Reading List Brooklyn s Long Memory Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going Home means to us Is it a familiar physical space A refuge A feeling A state of mind Or is home actually to be found in another human being maybe your partner your parents How do you know when

  • A Peek Into Britain's Drinking Culture
    for alcoholism Really Is this what we should be aspiring to Alcoholism is not something that should be glorified or glamorised yet it is the dangerous truth for many in England The focus of having a good time is drinking It s not about enjoying yourself it is about getting drunk Drinking is a competition who can drink the most Who can get drunk the quickest Who is the first to vomit Pick me pick me Does anyone truly enjoy this Self confidence is an ongoing issue in drinking The face many put on is merely for show and relays a deeper issue of wanting to belong and to be accepted We are taught to be polite reserved to be courteous But does this get us anywhere when meeting people Plucking up the courage to talk to a stranger means downing a few drinks and stumbling towards the person with a frightened grin on half of your face To lose your inhibition means to become fearless to become a different person The idea of not being your awkward polite self when drunk is appealing Maybe you re a nicer person when you re drunk There is something exciting about being able to talk to whomever you like with the excuse of being drunk to fall back on if it doesn t quite work out Drinking is an excuse for doing things you wouldn t normally do for doing whatever you want and often not facing consequences Laws and legislation do little to Britain s drinking ego Recent attempts to introduce a night time café culture in universities from what I gather has been rejected and shunned by many students From the age of 15 we wait with great anticipation until we are 18 and can legally drink Being able to vote doesn t get nearly as much excitement It is thrilling to feel different to usual This pressure to do something everyone does the pressing desire to belong is too much to counter act the lure of drinking like everyone else It is so easy to fall into this dangerous cycle of loss of inhibition and self control It is only when we learn to respect ourselves and our own decisions that this cycle is broken and we are able to face the problem The idea of a more sober Britain is fascinating What would people do Would the pub culture die down Or would an evening café culture arise What about clubbing Would people still want to dance without the absence of their reserve Perhaps there would be more time for talking more time for thinking But then again perhaps there would be less socialising less conversation It s impossible to judge We are creatures of habit and two of our damaging habits are drinking and conforming Perhaps we would revert to nightly tea drinking It s a nice thought About Isabel Gonzalez Prendergast Isabel is particularly interested in international literature learning about different cultures and philosophies Mail More
