Harry Potter High Tea

‘Attention all Harry Potter fans, you are invited to drink your tea in style! ‘ If you’ve read Harry Potter and the Neverending Rain then you already know that I am a big fan of the boy who lived. So naturally, when I found out that there’s a B&B in Wales that serves Harry Potter themed high […]

I have a dream 🙂 A dream to fulfill ever since the opening of the ABBA museum in May 2013. I have seen the fairy-tale of this Swedish pop group and I became a fan. I took the future and I did prevail. This summer I finally got to scratch this awesome museum off my bucket list. It’s […]

As a child I always knew exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up; a war correspondent. My mother on the other hand, did not think it was such a good idea. So, in an attempt to make it sound less scary, I told her that I would become a Middle East correspondent […]
