London and my fours years living in it

I have now celebrated fours years since I moved to London and I don't know how to feel towards this anniversary. Let be completely transparent and honest. My mood isn't exactly celebratory. Lately and special this year, my state of mind swings from melancholy to complete apathy. I've found myself at times not understanding what … Continue reading London and my fours years living in it

Exploring the living old parts of Rome

One of the things I like the most in any European city is simply the streets. Not that you can find any sort of pattern, mind me. But I like that these streets were not built for cars. I adore how intrinsicate, narrow, wavy or even steep they can be. I love the way buildings … Continue reading Exploring the living old parts of Rome

Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve and the 2nd largest reef barrier in the world

And there were two very interesting people who took on … Continue reading Indigenous culture lives on in San Cristobal de las Casas

I had flown from Mexico City to the state of Chiapas - the poorest in Mexico. I was going to spend two days and two nights in San Cristóbal. … Continue reading San Cristóbal de Las Casa, un pueblo mágico, indeed

Finding European Golden Times in Mexico City

Sounds odd, doesn't it? In my mind, Mexico does not resemble Europe, despite having been colonised by europeans. And, let's be fair, after visiting Mexico, I can still stand by this. Mexico doesn't feel like any European place I have been to, and I am far from thinking this is a bad thing. For architecture … Continue reading Finding European Golden Times in Mexico City

Experiencing the overwhelming medina of Fez

One of the most fascinating thing to explore when going to Morocco are the medinas of each towns. It is also one of the most intimidating experiences I must say. And, of course, because of this, it was one of the experiences I was so much looking forward to live. "Now", started our guide, a … Continue reading Experiencing the overwhelming medina of Fez
