Me digging at the Durotriges Dig
Who doesn’t love a mysterious story about people and their lives long passed. When people asked me what I wanted to study when I was older, I would always answer archaeologist. The intriguing stories from Egyptians, Greek and Romans, and later the Aztec and native Indians, enthralled me beyond measure....
Winterville entrance
If you are looking for a Christmas market in London, you're better off visiting Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park or the Christmas market on the South Bank. If you rather visit an alternative, hipster market, you've come to the right place. Winterville in Victoria Park oozes East London vibe. Its...

3 Days in Romantic Venice
Venice…the magical city once called home by the womaniser Casanova and the talented painters Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese, is either loved or hated by its visitors. I happen to adore it.
