2 hours in Pisa

The day has arrived. The sun was peeking through the curtains and the idea of having a ten days break from fluorescent light and dry noodle soups was overwhelming, I felt happiness washing over me. After talking with a couple of friends who travelled to Tuscany on more than one occasion, I learnt that flights […]

Travel is my real job

It was early sunny spring morning in London Bridge apartment filled with the smell of coffee and fresh croissants.
