I love living in London, there is always so much to see and do. However I am also keen to see more of this country, as there are so many stunning places and I definitely haven't explored enough. So I was delighted when Southerneast Railway invited me to visit Rochester and find some hidden gems. To be honest, I believe Rochester is a hidden gem itself, as many people might choose Canterbury for a day trip from London and Rochester would not necessarily be one's first choice. So why should you visit Rochester and what is there to do and where should you eat?Read More
The topic of sustainable living is a very current one, especially if, like me, you live in a crowded city like London. I have always been fascinated by the concept of minimal living and keen to find out how it is possible to maximise our living space without impact on the urban footprint. Partnering with MINI has given me the opportunity to explore the topic more, as it was participating to the London Design Festival with its MINI LIVING URBAN CABIN.Read More
My first memory of London is of when I was a little girl watching "Mary Poppins", the scene when Mary Poppins is descending from the sky with her umbrella is the one that stuck with me most: Big Ben, the river Thames and those rooftops made me dream of London from a young age. However, I wouldn't get to visit London until the summer before my last year at High School, when I begged my parents to send me to UK for a few weeks to improve my English, to my disappointment when we booked the trip it was recommended I wouldn't go to London, but a different cities for a better chance to immerse myself in the culture and avoid being surrounded by Italians. So I spent three amazing weeks in Canterbury.Read More
Athens, Greece- one city I was excited to visit, as it boasts an abundance of history, culture, architecture, mythology and philosophy. I love London, but summers are disappointing and I always crave for warmer days, so I jumped at the opportunity of visiting Athens with Visa.
I remember Athens from my high school days, its stories and mythology had always fascinated me plus it was the birth place of so many things: democracy, which means literally, rule by the people, the first stadium, Panathenaic Stadium or Kallimarmaro literal translation "beautiful marble"), it is the only stadium in the world built entirely of marble, place of birth of the Olympic games. The modern Olympic Games were based on the ancient Greek Olympiad which is documented as far back as 776 BCE. For 1000 years, the ancient games were held at Olympia in honor of Zeus, the king of the gods in Greek mythology.Read More
It has been a few months already since my long weekend in Warsaw, where I was invited to experience Restaurant Week, and the food scene of the city. One of the reasons it has taken me so long to write this post, even though I edited all my photos after returning home, is I needed time to process it all, plus I was also being lazy . Warsaw has surprised me and won me over, I sincerely didn't expect to like it that much, it is a complex city with many layers, however I was able to explore a bit more under the surface and beyond the tourist path thanks to my amazing guide, Agnieska. I can't recommend her enough if you are planning a stay in Warsaw and want to see it with the eyes of a local with an extensive knowledge of its history.Read More
