Ever since in 2015 when I became a single parent to two adorable little girls, I have come to appreciate the deeper meaning of living, to do just those things, to the best of ones capability, both financial and emotional, that give lasting happiness and build memories to cherish for the rest of one’s life.

Having spent the most part of my life in the corporate world as a Business Economist, Change Management Expert, Strategist and also working within the corporate retail sector in London, United Kingdom, I still felt unfulfilled, not living the life I wanted for myself and my family.

Then changing circumstances meant I had to take a tough decision. I was filled with trepidation and uncertainty for the future, as a single father. However, having plunged myself into the life of single parenting, I had to make adjustments, and that, my dear friends, was how I became reborn.

I have always had a huge passion for traveling, restoration of old wooden household furnishings and objet d’Art, writing and visual arts. Once I took up painting as a hobby in my former life but due to work/life pressures, I gave that up.

Sharing my travel adventures, oftentimes with my children in tow, to some of the most beautiful destinations, is one of the aims of this blog site. I have a keen interest in urban living and how the changing face of urban life is impacting on our lifestyles, from the growth in the shabby chic culture, to music trends and health & well-being.

On our travels, we explore wonderful cities and villages, mix with the locals in order to experience different cultures and traditions and what makes them different from us.

My love for the arts and vintage items come alive as I venture through the back streets, art shops and antique shops looking for little treasures, as my daughters would say😊. I have had occasions where some locals would offer me items to buy off them, items that define their cultural heritage and traditions.

Some items I collect on my travels are usually kept for memories and many others are sold off to London galleries, dealers and collectors.
