Visiting Bath: One of my Favourite Cities in the World

Visiting Bath: One of my Favourite Cities in the World

‘As for Bath, all history went and bathed, and drank the waters there.’ – William Thackeray. One of my favourite cities in the world is actually a lot closer to home than many people may think. Bath, the beautiful spa city in Wiltshire, with its warm honey-coloured limestone architecture, has been a place I invariably return to every year or so. It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when Bath won a spot in my heart and became one of my favourite places….

Seasonal London

Seasonal London

‘I need the seasons to live to the rhythm of rain and sun.’ – Sophie Marceau. Having lived in London for over a year now, I think it’s safe to say there are elements of the city that I enjoy in every season. Every spring, summer, autumn and winter there are seasonal offerings that bring out the best of the city and make me excited for the upcoming months. Even during winter, when the city is at its darkest and…

HTMW Recaps: September 2017

HTMW Recaps: September 2017

Visiting The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Visiting The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

‘Es ist geschehen, und folglich kann es wieder geschehen. Darin liegt der Kern dessen, was wir zu sagen haben.’ ‘It happened, therefore it can happen again: this is the core of what we have to say.’ Primo Levi. I am standing in the Room of Dimensions and I’m having trouble holding back the tears that are threatening to spill over and trickle down my cheeks. The room is starkly light and my shadow is looming over the transcript on the…

My Viewpoint on the World in 2016

My Viewpoint on the World in 2016

‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.’ – Martin Luther King, Jr. Never has a quote felt more apt. Every year, on November 11th, just like millions of others, I pause in whatever I happen to be doing and bow my head in silence for two minutes, to remember those who gave their lives in the two World Wars and those who continue to give or lose their…
