We’re off to see Gorillas!

We’re off to see Gorillas!

So following on from the awesome experience of building a playground for EAP, we had a blissful rest day then set off early on a very long bus journey (again) to commence a 5 day trek to visit Gorilla’s in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park!

Now I think this experience is one everyone would enjoy and I for one was extremely excited, not just to see this incredible animal but in its natural environment was a dream come true! Although I realise this can be difficult to achieve (travel, cost ect.), it is something I believe should be encouraged more so that we can start moving away from the unfairness of zoo environments.

My EAP Experience

My EAP Experience

So this blog post is seeerriiiooouuussslllyyy over due but settling into graduate life has been hectic to say the least. However I can finally tell you all about my 3 amazing weeks out in Uganda, with an amazing charity and amazing people.

Around this time last year, I had just returned from a great challenge (which I will write up as soon as I can) with another awesome charity. So when the University of Portsmouth RAG offered the EAP Gorilla Trek, of course I was interested!

Portsmouth Pearls – Rosie’s Vineyard

Portsmouth Pearls – Rosie’s Vineyard

Tucked away in the corner of Elm Grove, this adorable restaurant boasts great food, good wine and a glorious atmosphere! Quite well known in the Portsmouth area but sometimes over looked in replacement for chain restaurants that can be found in Gunwharf. However the unique setting and high food standard from Rosie’s Vineyard is something that simply can’t be missed! The interior is light and airy with quaint details that gives it a little ‘Parisian’ feel. All the staff are very friendly and the service was run smoothly.

I started this series of blog posts to share with you all the little gems I’ve found whilst in Portsmouth studying for my Bachelors degree. Although I’ve now graduated (cue stressed work life aaahhhh) I am still eager to share my discoveries with you all, old and new as I will still be visiting my university city as much as I can. And this particular place was a lovely surprise! Opening up earlier this year Jam & Bowler is exactly whats Portsmouth needed.

Basically its breakfast heaven!

Portsmouth Pearls – Atrium

One of the BEST Portsmouth Pearls (in my personal opinion) is Atrium. A hidden cocktail bar found above The Fat Fox pub. This little gem always has a chilled atmosphere with lots of music (you can ask the DJ or staff for requests) and very reasonably priced drinks. On a weekday they range from £3.65-3.95 and £8.95 for a pitcher however paying £5.50-£5.95 or £12.50 for a pitcher on a weekend (in my opinion) is not a bad deal! They also offer a themed ‘Cocktail of the Week’ for £3.25 and it always tastes good!

Finally starting the Portsmouth Pearls series (yay)! Showing you all round the city that’s given me three great university years (sometimes spending more time having fun than being academic…but hey, still got my 2:1)! Over that time myself, housemates and friends have found some awesome places that I am dying to share with you, some are already extremely popular but others you may have never heard of.
