  • Rules of engagement.

    I like long holidays by the beach and endless walks across London, New York and the world’s different towns and cities, so that I can feel their pace and get to know them; the magic of a well-lit boulevard and the seclusion of a hidden, noiseless street; the scent of freshly ground coffee, brown chocolate…

  • Walking out of Cărtureşti today.

    I envied cats for the nine lives they are said to have. Because if I were a cat and able to live all my nine lives in parallel, I would use one or maybe more of these lives to live in a place like Cărtureşti or in a library and read up all the books…

  • The Next Stop Is…

    One thing I like when taking the tube to work is finding a seat and flicker through a magazine or a book. Looking up every now and then, I see other commuters doing the same – it feels like we are all embarked on a cultural train – are we?
