About Me

Hello Everyone πŸ™‚

Originally from Newcastle, UK, I went on to study Earth Sciences and Astrobiology at the University of Bristol and now work as a Data Analyst and Big Data Engineer in London.

Being a Northerner, I am slowly accustoming myself to London Life. Β The most important things I’ve learnt so far are

1. Never stand on the left hand side of the escalator

2. No-one knows what a Greggs is

3. Β£1.95 trebles are a thing of the past

Aside from that, life here is pretty great! There’s always things going on and by creating this blog, I like to think I’ll have a lot of exciting memories to look back on in a few years!

The inspiration behind the name ‘livewhilstyourealive” stems from my natural zest for life. Β This planet is beautiful and I aim to see and do as much of it as possible in my lifetime. Β After hearing the lyrics “I just wanna live whilst I’m alive” from Bon Jovi’s song “It’s my life”, it struck a nerve in me toΒ try and live each day as if it were my last.

This blog will focus on my travel adventures (both past and present), providing tips,Β anecdotes and info, as well as the events andΒ experiences I get up to in London for those looking for things to do in the Big Smoke.
