Where I live in Spain, November is a delightful and warm extension of summer. Once in a while, we spend weekends outside the city looking for new places or charming towns and villages. Cumbre del Sol is situated in the province of Alicante on the Costa Blanca and it’s one of the most picturesque residential developments […]

Some of you might know already, from my previous post, that I had the opportunity to organise my second photography exhibition. I would like to introduce you now to the lovely man that was kind enough to let me expose on the walls of his playground. I met Joan by chance when my partner was […]

Converted warehouse complex in King’s Cross near Granary Square. Both the location and building are worthy of a visit, you get to stroll along the canal as well and have a coffee at the floating coffee shop docked in front of the square (pictures to come).
