The holiday is over. Ladies and gentleman collect your belongings and move to the back of the bus. No pushing. No shoving. We’re going to make a clean exit. Yes, today we fly home. Not sure why I wrote bus there, but I was free writing and that’s what came out so I’ll leave it. […]


some things about your colorful country are just plain loco. First let me be clear, I had a great time in Spain and I will do a post with the highlights of our visit after I get home. I won’t be able to really give the research and writing the time it deserves until then […]

Well, we’ve left Spain and arrived in London and yay, I have internet connection!

Okay, I know I was supposed to publish my post about how I lost 9kgs while eating chocolate cake today – and believe me it’s coming – but I just couldn’t concentrate on finishing it because this morning I booked my family a 4 WEEK EUROPEAN VACATION! This is super exciting news because: Hello… a […]

Have you ever done something bold? Something exhilarating, terrifying. Something that required a courage and a determination you never dreamed possible? Maybe it was parachuting, or starting a new business, or getting married to someone you met a month ago. It doesn’t matter whether anyone else would think it’s daring, it’s only important that it […]


EAT PRAY LOVE is a book I find very hard to review. The whole point of reviewing a book is to be able to judge it from a distance. I cannot do this with EAT PRAY LOVE. I am obsessed with the magic that is this book and the enormous talent that is Elizabeth Gilbert. […]
