'I live in an up and coming part of Bristol known as Brislington. I live in a victorian terraced house besides the famous Black castle, now a pub.'
'I love Piccolino's restaurant. It's a really cool place and it has a great outdoor terrace. Plus they prepare lush cocktails. It's located in Cabot Circus and the restaurant offers a wonderful combination of both modern and classic Italian dishes. '
'My favourite venue is Paintworks located on Bath Road (not far from Temple Meads station). Inside, they have lots of small galleries and funky shops. It's a pretty trendy area. What's more they have a bar called Bocca and they cook the best pizza ever. It's really good to chill out on their little terrace.
But I also enjoy chilling out with a drink in Queen Square during the summertime.'
'My local pub is the Thunderbolt. It has a very nice little garden and it's a kind of a relaxing place.'
'My favourite restaurant is the Riverstation. It's a bit pricey but they cook amazing English food. The riverstation is located only 5 minutes away from EC's English Language Centre.
'My favourite band is Foo Fighters!'
'My best day is waking up late, going to Bocca for a pizza, drinking beer in a park and having a BBQ. Yummy!'
