Mental Health: Talk About It.

It's Mental Health Awareness week. What does that mean to you? Well, it made me think about what mental health means to me.

To get to Venice, the train journey was around 15 hours. That's why we decided to do it overnight, which worked out pretty well and saved us paying for a night accomodation! We were in a six seater cabin and when we boarded there was only three of us in our section. So we all... Continue Reading →
