Yoga: A state of being (and it’s for everyone)

I’m usually more concerned with talking about what I do and its benefits, rather than commenting on what others offer. But at the moment I’m looking on with some dismay as to what the general ‘yoga scene’ offers. I feel I have to comment, as it could of course also be shaping the perception of what people think I offer, since it’s all yoga, … Read More Yoga: A state of being (and it’s for everyone)

Secret Malta: Posh Yacht Spots

” Take a bottle of wine, a foam mat and a blanket if it’s winter. The waves crash only metres away. It’s a scene straight out of a Bond movie.”

The extraordinary mind of Valerie Wright

The sheer wonder of being able to sit there and paint, whatever you’re painting, and being inspired by your subject and, of course, portray it as best as you can. Acquaintances, like this one, are hard to find. If you’d ever met Valerie Wright, you would know.

Secret Malta: Train Station to Nowhere

London has gangsters; Malta has cats. They hang about in clumps, staring, and their eyes glow in the dark, waiting for you to look at them wrong. There is a ton of them where there was once a train station in Birkirkara (spelled wrong – you’ll notice.

When you tell someone you are travelling to India, more often than not you are met with concern instead of excitement. As a young female traveller I certainly found this to be the case. ‘Aren’t you afraid?’ people kept asking, and to be honest I was.

Navigating New York: Midtown

As a tourist, Midtown New York is the promise land of iconic buildings. You find yourself in amongst the distinctive skyline that is plastered across every hoodie, mug, t-shirt in the vicinity. There’s a lot to see, but luckily Manhattan is a deceptively small island for how big of a reputation it has.

This Cypriot “Smurf” is definitely not feeling blue.

The social media vlogosphere, that engine of crowd-sourced entertainment, has much to both answer and be thanked for. On the one hand we have the gross antics of Logan Paul or the smh Darwinism-in-action that is the Tide pod challenge; on the other hand we find the irresistible charm and well earned successes of Vsauce and Jenna Marbles and their ilk.
