On the way back to London

These are snippets from our journey back to London. After one year of living ‘la dolceĀ vita’ in Rome we realised rainy London fits better to our characters.

The sweet road back home

Once upon a time in Zanzibar, with my family, driving back home after a long and fantastic day at the beach. We were based in the south east area of the island but we decided to make a day trip to the north, most touristy area. I regularly find myself missing this beautiful island and […]
