A Knockout Encounter with Birds of Prey

Birds of prey from norfolk wild encounters

Okay, I have just gotten over the Mayweather-Pacquiao bout but when I went to see the owls and hawk from Norfolk Wild Encounters (NWE) I was knocked out. NWE Birds of Prey graced the Grapes Hill Community Garden on 3rd of May, the morning after "the fight of the century" mania. I didn't have a […] Read More

3 Interesting Things I Discovered on My Trip to Swansea

Oystermouth Castle

They say it always rains in Wales but when my friends took me with them to this beautiful country on the west of the UK, not a single drop of rain, until our departure day, which was fair enough. We're leaving anyway. Wales is one of the top ten countries in my bucket list and I […] Read More

Sleepless in Paris and Some Bizarre Travel Encounters

Paris in Spring

Like any other touristic capital such as Rome, London and Edinburgh which are always busy during the day, in some “the beginning has just begun when the sun goes down”. That’s Paris. I love night cities that offer wholesome activities other than going to pubs and bars. A romantic stroll by a magnificent view is […] Read More

My Foodie Trip to Paris and The Search for Macaron

French artisan b-compressed

Well, it wasn't my intention but my first trip to Paris has made me a gourmand—more than I already am, by the way. It's no wonder then I now weigh 47kg and I'm proud to announce it. Why not? My cheeks are plumper but my thighs and waistline are pretty much the same. When I was […] Read More
