Things That Make You Go Oooooo (November 2015)

Last Light

Sayonara November! This month has mostly involved me eating all the foods in the house, cleaning all the things in the Batcave and packing my big pink suitcase for my adventures in Japan which I leave for in just a few days. I can't believe how fast this year has gone it's been so crazy, at the moment my brain is so focused on Japan everything else has become a blur, too much excitement ahead so I hope you enjoy this months links xoxo

One of my Direwolf scarves was featured in this Buzzfeed quiz so check it out and let me know which Direwolf you are, no surprises here as I got my fave wolfie Ghost.

107 Steps Closer to Heaven (Palermo Cathedral)

Palermo Cathedral

I stumbled upon Palermo Cathedral on my first afternoon there completely by surprise, I wasn't looking for it, I was just aimlessly wandering the streets and all of a sudden there it was, this huge beautiful building surrounded by the scent of oranges and coffee from neighbouring cafés.

The sun began to set as I walked around the courtyard so I decided to explore it properly the next day and grab myself some food and some sleep. Palermo Cathedral is a lot bigger than the Capella Palatina but less ostentatious albeit a bit more fancy than any of the churches I had ever visited in the U.K.

For a small charge you can visit the treasury, the crypts and the roof which is a must because the views up there are amazing. To reach the roof we had to walk up an old stone spiral staircase of 107 steps which was a great workout for the thighs after indulging on all that gelato and pizza but totes worth it! I loved being up high and seeing the whole city, it was the perfect sunny day so you could see the ocean and the mountains surrounding the city, it was just so beautiful up there.

Palermo is such a beautiful place and even better than Rome in my opinion, I really enjoyed just wandering around and visiting random churches and cafés, amazing places can literally be found on every corner and this was one of them.
