Friends and the City

I have always been a big Sex and the City fan, so when I learnt that my friend's birthday theme was this classic of a show, I knew that it would be fun. There is just something about this show that makes women feel understood. Even though they represent a specific category in society (not… Continue reading Friends and the City

The Cherry on Top

I don't always get that feeling when I leave my hometown. The first time I left Lyon for London, what I felt was nothing short of excitement with a touch of apprehensiveness.

An Evening in Dreamland

Last weekend's walk on the Kentish beaches felt like a dream, and what better way to end it than to stop by Dreamland? For those of you who don't know this area of England, Dreamland is in fact an amusement park in Margate situated a minute walk from the beach front.  It was the reward… Continue reading An Evening in Dreamland
