I’m Lara. I’m Australian, but you’ll rarely find me there. Left home for London in 2014 and am currently based in Ukraine.
I’m cynical, sarcastic, and sometimes funny. I love eating random things (and eating in general), Soviet mosaics, craft beer, science fiction, good coffee and the positive stress that comes from travelling. My favourite tank is the T-34, which I feel I’ve told more people than is strictly necessary.
Will often wander into abandoned buildings, guilty of entering but never breaking. Have been obsessed with the macabre for as long as I can remember, much to my mother’s disappointment. Frequently give unsolicited lectures on Soviet history, serial killers, or a combination of both. If that doesn’t sound terrible, this might just be the blog for you. Not that we have to be monogamous.
