'3k Britons dead in two weeks with that number likely to double every few weeks.'

I got into the World Cup this year. I don't particularly like football, or soccer as we would call it, but I definitely got into it.

A little background to my football knowledge. I used to play the sport when I was 13. One game, I was kept on...

A huge Happy St. George's Day to everyone who loves their country. Or not.

England has been branded as the least patriotic country in the world. Apparently only one in three English citizens or residents even know the holiday exists - with 40% unsure of why St. George is...

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream today."

In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the famous 'I...

(4) Comments | Posted 28 November 2013 | (00:00)

In the lead up to Thanksgiving, the question that springs to most people's lips is 'what are you thankful for?'

This year, I thought I was thankful for my new ice cream maker which allows me to make delicious ice cream and then Instagram the photo, showing all of...

(0) Comments | Posted 29 October 2013 | (20:40)

With more than 200,000 homes estimated to be in darkness after the recent mega storm 'St Jude' hit UK shores, the question on most people's lips after the recent surge in gas and electricity prices is; is it really worth turning on the lights?

London - a Very Unfamiliar City

(0) Comments | Posted 15 August 2013 | (18:30)

To me, familiarity is a crime. Becoming too familiar with a person, a company, or even a city can become detrimental to one's health. That's why I travel, to explore the unfamiliar. I suppose that is why everyone travels and explores - but to me travelling keeps me sane.

Is London Really the City of Opportunity?

(4) Comments | Posted 5 April 2013 | (14:58)

(0) Comments | Posted 22 January 2013 | (16:28)

With another four years in office, and the eyes of the world once again upon him, Barack Obama has promised change (again).

A strong statement, but one which I can say I relate to. As an American living in London for nearly ten years I have had no option...
