How snow is London’s real Armageddon

I have been living in London for quite a few years and in my opinion it is one of the best cities in this world. It has around 7 million people that call it home and this number will probably grow every year. It is the financial capital of Europe, if not the world, the…

What are the big charities doing?

I don’t think many people go about their days without, at least once a day, being exposed and “bombarded” by charity work or advertising on tv, newspapers, radio or even on the street. So, how many charities do you know? There are some bigger than others, but almost everyone has heard names like Samaritans, Unicef,…

London through my eyes – Part 2 (Brick Lane)

One of the most unique areas in London is without a doubt the Eastend. The East of London has always been considered one of the poorest in the city, if not the poorest, and was “home” to names like Jack the Ripper. It was there, in Whitechapel, that he brutally killed women. The Eastend is…

Are you thankful?

Humans like to take everything for granted. Why? Because we do. We really do. We know there will be a morning after having slept through the night. We know that the sun will always “rise”, even if it’s heavily cloudy and we can’t see it. We know the moon is up there in the sky…

London through my eyes – Part 1

I have been living in London for over 17 years now and everyday there’s always something new to do and see. This mega city just has so much to offer, to everyone that wants a piece of it, that it can surprise you in every way. What I want to do with this post, and…

Happy Monday everyone!

Yes, yes, yes! It’s Monday again folks! There’s no way around it, it truly is here and I hope you had a great weekend, whatever you did. Monday is not a bad day, it’s not the “ugly duckling” or the black sheep in the week family. It’s just another day. But let me give you…

What have Mondays done to us?

You know the drill. You might have worked during the week, you’re looking forward to 5 or 6 o’clock pm on a Friday, looking forward to the weekend and then… Monday. Every single Monday, when I’m at my desk at work, I get at least a handful of people complaining about it, saying that they’re…

The Marvel vs DC “debate”

The super-heroes and villains movies have come to stay. We’ve always had movies made about them, some of them going back several decades, and even tv shows/series, but it’s been pretty much since 2008 that we saw a boom in this type of movie entertainment. So, what happened in 2008? It was the year that…

Happy birthday to me!

My day has arrived! Another twelve months to be added to the long list of months that came before. Years ago, on this date, I came to this world. And it’s been an amazing ride so far. Plenty to laugh about, plenty to cry about, many people met, many stories told, many experiences lived and…
