The end of October also saw the celebration of a local festival called Freimarkt which is basically a huge fair with rides, food and drink.  Unfortunately the weather wasn't as pleasant as the fairground when we decided to visit but it was still a good night and well worth a visit.

Shortly after the October holidays, on Halloween weekend, I headed to Aachen to stay with Amira - my Erasmus friend from Barcelona.  I had been to Aachen before to carry out work experience when I was seventeen but the memories were hazy and we had a great weekend rediscovering the city.

The Holidays

Sorry about the lack of updates...again.  I will try to do better.  October was a hectic month for me though.  I was home for two weeks during the school holidays, although actually away again, this time in Venice, Italy with Dad and Bri for a few days within those two weeks.  Then it was back into the swing of things here.

So the holidays started off with a big surprise for my Gran who had no idea that I was coming home and got (hopefully a nice) shock in the M&S cafe when I walked up to her while talking to her on the phone, pretending to be in Germany.  We got to spend some quality time together while I was back which was nice too. 

After quite a lot of catching up including meeting the beautiful baby Olivia for the first time and seeing how much my beautiful baby niece Caitlin had grown while I was away, we headed to Venice for a bit of exploring.  Here are some pictures.
