Everyone should have a role model, someone whose character and achievements you admire. For me that person is Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin and all round crazy guy who does not like to a...
In the mid 19th century, Paris was suffocating in the cramped network of its ancient streets. Until then, the city had expanded by developing its outer districts without any careful consideration...
It would be a shame to visit Ukraine and not spend a few days in the natural solitude of the Carpathian Mountains. After a visit to Kiev, Ivano Frankivsk and Lviv I booked myself a cosy little co...
Travelling to new places is always about self discovery. Finding out why you view certain things the way you do, breaking misconceptions and realising there is no such thing as 'normal'. What you...

When asked to sum up the Buddha’s teachings up in one phrase a zen teacher Suzuki Roshi simply said, “Everything changes.”. We must remember this in our daily lives and understand that clinging o...
