1/ Classic start to a Northern train journey: 24 min delay due to "awaiting a member of staff" & the train to MCR airport is rammed incl. a group of rowdy lads singing Vera Lynn "We'll meet again" & drinking cans of Bud Light at 8:30am 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️ #EUsupergirlTour ✈🇬🇧
2/ Then the "Direct" MCR airport service randomly decides it isn't going to the airport after all (don't they realise people have flights to catch?!)🤦🏼‍♀️✈
Funny: I have to plan 1hr contingency time for train Fckups when I travel to Northern airports.
I don't have to in London🤔
3/ Next stops on the #EUsupergirlTour 🇪🇺:
I was considering not tweeting due to "grifter holiday" trolling - then last night I received an email requesting the use of some footage I filmed in #Latvia for an educational documentary for a Non-profit...
4/ ...Which made me remember my mission: to promote Europe's cultural diversity, pride in our European identity, & the value of #EUcitizenship - facilitating travel, work & life in EU28 🇪🇺✊🏻

Copies of my sketchbook will be available through crowdfunder:…
5/ Made it to #Greece! 🇬🇷✈✊🏻
I can report: It appears to be #Christmas here already... 😬🎄🎁🎅👼 The temperature is a bit warm for snowmen... however 🤔☃️❄ #EUsupergirlTour

*The prospect of a Tory majority is haunting me wherever I go... 😱👻🥴🇬🇷
7/ Found a suitable gift for my "handbag"/"future husband"... @joelbaccas 😂😂😂💙🇬🇷😘 👜
Got to love the tacky tourist shops 🙃
8/ I think you can see the whole of Athens in one go from the top of Lyabettus Hill 🤩🇬🇷🏛🏙 And what stunning view it is! #Greece #LoveGreece #LoveEurope #TheFutureisEurope 🇪🇺
9/ There were some tortoises on the hill. One of them clearly intent on having a lie-in today so his friend started tapping his shell:
"Oi! Get up! We got to go!" 😠🐢
"Is that lazy git refusing to get up again?! I'll come give him a tap." 🙄🐢
"Let me sleeeeeeep..." 😴🐢💤
10/ This was a lovely place to sit and sketch this afternoon 🇬🇷💙🇪🇺 #Athens #Greece #LoveEurope #TheFutureisEurope #EUsupergirlTour
11/ There's a lot of cats in Athens. And some of them are incredibly friendly... 😻😺😸😹😼😽🙀😿😾
🇬🇷💙🐈 #EUsupergirlTour
12/ Prize for the cheekiest kitty in Athens goes to this boy 😹😹😹
13/ Some interesting graffiti around town... 🇬🇷 #Athens
Especially liked the "Send Nudes. Asking for a friend."
...But send them where ?!! 😂😳 #EUsupergirlTour
14/ There's some fabulous religious architecture in Athens ... 💒🇬🇷 It was packed around this church in the central tourist/commercialised area: A group of guys doing a break dancing show made an interesting sound track to my sketch 😂✏📒 #EUsupergirlTour #LoveEurope 🇪🇺
15/ These lads... Absolutely adorable 😍🥰👬🇬🇷 Checking out the planes at the Military museum in Athens ✈ #Greece
16/ Watercolour painting and some more snaps of Athenian architecture 🇬🇷🏤🏡 #Athens #Greece #LoveEurope 🇪🇺🌍 #TheFutureisEurope
17/ Some great Street Art around Athens... I thought the "€0" was quite funny: if a euro = zero surely the pound must be in negative territory now 😜0️⃣💷 #Greece 🇬🇷 #EUsupergirlTour
18/ FUTURE IS THE... ? 🤔🇪🇺
I also like how they paint all the electricity boxes in Athens. Super nice to turn boring street furniture into a canvas for the city's artists... 🇬🇷🎨 #Greece #EUsupergirlTour
19/ here is the flower (and fruit) power in #Greece 😁🌸🌼🌺🏵🍊🌳 #FlowerPower #LoveEurope 🇬🇷🇪🇺
20/ Greek bakery! They also did great coffee 🤩🥖☕🇬🇷 They seem to love putting seeds on their pastries & breads... there were also little kiosks selling roasted nuts everywhere I went! #Greece #LoveEurope 🇪🇺
21/ My second watercolour painting from #Greece 🇬🇷🇪🇺 #EUsupergirlTour #LoveEurope #TheFutureisEurope
22/ Those little details which brighten up the streets... 🧐 #LoveEurope 🇬🇷🇪🇺 #Greece
23/ I can highly recommend the views from Filopappou Hill - even on a wet & cloudy day like today - when the dogs are out in their raincoats 😂🐕🧥☔ 🇬🇷🇪🇺 #Athens #Greece #LoveEurope #TheFutureisEurope
24/ Leaving Athens today ... A stunning place to visit. But it was a huge shame my first experience in Greece was affected by the unacceptable behaviour of some men (which occurs across Europe). Thread on casual street harassment: #NoWomanEver #MeToo
25/ Flying from EU funded Athens #Greece airport to Larnaca #Cyprus 😎🇪🇺💙🇬🇷🇨🇾 #LoveEurope #EUsupergirlTour #TheFutureisEurope
26/ Oh look! More EU funding on the beach in #Larnaca #Cyprus 🇪🇺🏝🇨🇾 #EUsupergirlTour #TheFutureisEurope
27/ Hmmmm... The cats seem to be a bit of a thing here too. 🤔🇨🇾🐈 Some of them are so teeny I've never seen cats so thin before: the little white & ginger kitten wandered into a restaurant and hid under the table until the waitress shooed it out 😐 #Cyprus #EUsupergirlTour
28/ Time for a sketch before the #Sunset around 5pm here... seems quite early? 🤔🇨🇾🌇🌅 Excited to see more of #Larnaca tomorrow- need to make good use of the daylight hours... 🕰 #EUsupergirlTour
29/ Can anyone enlighten me as to what CRAZY SOFA is...? 🤔🌊🛋🤪 Sounds like a blast - should I try it? 😂 #Cyprus 🇨🇾🏖
30/ This one is definitely a contender for the "Cutest Kitten in Europe Award" 😻😻😻🇪🇺🐈🥇
On the Marina in Larnaca... 🇨🇾
I'll post a video below 👇🏻
I want to take it home with me!! (Not sure @AlbaWhiteWolf would approve though...) 😂🇪🇺🐺 #EUsupergirlTour
32/ Beach sketch in #Cyprus 🇨🇾🏖✏📒
Looks like I wasn't the only one out sketching today... I just hope she finished her drawing before the tide came in!! 😂🌊⛱ #EUsupergirlTour #LoveEurope 🇪🇺
33/ Quite proud of these photos. Not often you spot a dragon fly on barbed wire... 🧐
34/ Mediterranean colours! 😍🌺🌴🌼🌳🌷🌿🏵 #Cyprus 🇨🇾 #EUsupergirlTour
35/ Mediterranean street scene details... Whoever made Cactii look good... I salute you: Normally I detest the plants 😂🌵🌵🌵🏡🏚 #Cyprus 🇨🇾 #EUsupergirlTour
36/ Mediterranean doorway 😁 #Larnaca #Cyprus #EUsupergirlTour 🇨🇾🇪🇺🏚
36/ MORE CATS!!! 😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹😹 They are literally E.V.E.R.Y.W.H.E.R.E! 🇨🇾💞🐈
37/ Sunset in Larnaca 🇨🇾🌅🌴🌇 #Cyprus 🇪🇺 #LoveEurope
38/ #Cyprus is lovely but the blatant Anglicisation of #Larnaca is a bit jarring... I found it funny how all the commercial brands: McDonalds, etc. all had the old branding 😂 They also drive on the left hand side of the road & use square plug sockets... VIVA ENGLAND! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🙄🤦🏼‍♀️
39/ Sketch of a crumbling door way and some more #Mediterranean street scenes in #Cyprus 🇨🇾🏚🏡🇪🇺 #LoveEurope #TheFutureisEurope
40/ watercolour from the beach ... it was kind of cute to see the wedding photos being taken on the jetty 👰🤵🏖🇨🇾 #Cyprus #EUsupergirlTour
41/ Another watercolour as the sun set over Larnaca last night 🇨🇾🌄🌇 #LoveEurope 🇪🇺 #EUsupergirlTour
42/ This is "DEATH-STARE KITTY" who is trying to explode a dragonfly with the power of its eyes. 😸👀💥 #CyprusCats 🇨🇾
43/ Exploring #Malta today... 🇲🇹
The harbour seems to be the main tourist attraction : boats everywhere. The stripey ones are traditional... shame I get sea sick - avoid travelling by boat at all cost 😂🚤🚢 #TheFutureisEurope
44/ Sketch from the harbour as the sun set... 🌇🌅 A guy with a gimble randomly asked to film me drawing 😂 I told him he wasn't the first person to do that @jeffk33 🤩📹🇲🇹 #Malta #LoveEurope 🇪🇺
45/ This is "Duck's Village" on Manoel island in #Malta 🇲🇹🇪🇺
DISCLAIMER: It also features chickens, pigeons, cats & Guinea-pigs ... Apparently all "LIVING IN HARMONY" 😐🐓🐦🦆🐱
Presumably until the cats get hungry... 😹😹😹 #EUsupergirlTour
46/ I've got to hand it to the Maltese... I have never seen a cat sat alongside a rodent & a bird looking so non-plussed before... 😹💖🐓💖🐹 #Malta 🇲🇹 #LoveEurope
47/ And this is "CAT VILLAGE" another little tourist delight in #Malta... I definitely got my fill of cute animals here: "They have no home but they have a life" 🐈🐱🇲🇹🇪🇺 #EUsupergirlTour
😲🤪🤯 @MaltesersUK How did I not know this?! 😂💖🇲🇹
50/ Sketch of the infamous Maltese rocks and some photos of the material put to splendid use 🤩🇲🇹💖🇪🇺 #LoveEurope #Malta #EUsupergirlTour
51/ Conversation with a random guy whilst I was sketching this out:
"Are you drawing those rocks?"
"Are you a designer?"
"Erm... I'm an artist."
"Art is good."
"Yes it is."
"Have a nice evening then."
Anyway ... these rocks are beautiful. 🇲🇹 #Malta
52/ Flower power in #Malta 🇲🇹🌺🌻🌷🌼🌸⚘🇪🇺 #LoveEurope
Some really interesting and beautiful Mediterranean species 🧐
53/ Interesting textures and close-ups 🧐🇲🇹 #Malta #Travel #LoveEurope 🇪🇺
54/ Maltese Cross and some religious architecture in Valetta #Malta 🇲🇹🇪🇺💒 #EUsupergirlTour #LoveEurope #TheFutureisEurope
55/ I'm not a massive fan of boats (mainly due to seasickness) but I find the waterfront in Valetta utterly charming 🤩 So glad to capture some of its joy in a #watercolour painting today 🇲🇹🚢 #Malta #LoveEurope 🇪🇺 #EUsupergirlTour
