a) Humble sitting rooms can be as welcoming as a 5 star hotel (although, do love those long w/ends away in boutique hotels! :-))
b) Challenging situations & experiences make you stronger (although when in a war zone one simply think "let me the hell out of here!")
c) You only live once, so making the most of life key. Having a cheeky spark, mixed with humour and naughtiness is key :-)
I guess I was always going to end up in a job which would require travel but bliss is coming home to London and enjoying what this city has to offer - be it dinner and a good bottle of valpolicella or Rioja wine in favourite restaurants ,a Sunday stroll along the river, visiting a photography or art exhibition or perusing & taking advantage of Time Out's latest recommendations. However, I also love cooking my fusion culinary delights in exchange for good company - any takers?
