New York – Part 2

I've been living in New York for almost two months now and I'll be leaving in a month... I feel sad just thinking about it! The city is such a jungle and there's something surprising and interesting around every corner so I feel like I'm not done with it just yet. These past weeks have been... Continue Reading →

New York – Part 1

New York is quite possibly the coolest place on earth. I arrived on March 15th and I literally haven't sat still in three weeks. There is so much to do here in terms of culture whether it's dance, theatre or art, there is something for everyone and you'll experience so many new things that it's... Continue Reading →

Leysin, Switzerland

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” - Lewis Carroll I went on a short holiday to Switzerland last week....

France – Winter 2015

For the past few weeks the weather in the south of France has been too good to be true so it would almost be a crime not to put on your walking shoes and sniff the cool winter air. Admitted, in winter it's always so easy to wrap yourself in a nice blanket and sit by the... Continue Reading →

Rome – La grande bellezza

Last week I went on a short trip to Rome, Italy. I go there once or twice a year to visit friends and I'm always glad to go back. This time was no different. The city was at its most beautiful, the autumn colors gave the city a golden glow and with temperatures rising up... Continue Reading →


I spent a day in Marseille last week visiting the Musée des Civilisations de l'Europe et de la Méditerranée (MuCEM) near the old harbor. In 2013 Marseille was named European Capital of Culture and the MuCEM, designed by French architects Rudy Ricciotti and Roland Carta, was inaugurated in June 2013 as part of the celebration....

France – Autumn

"Autumn... the year's last, loveliest smile." This is what author William Cullen Bryant writes in his book "Indian Summer". Autumn was never my favorite season because I always associated it with going back to school. But as I've gotten older I've come to love autumn. The smell of burnt wood on an autumn evening, drinking cinnamon... Continue Reading →

France – Summer Blues

I always dread the end of summer. The air is still hot but leaves are already falling from the trees and a fresh breeze sweeps through the country side. No more summer dresses, no more night swims and no more long terrace evenings. It's time to make room for fall colors and turn on the... Continue Reading →

Jordan – Part 2

Part 2 of my trip to Jordan with friends. On day four we went to Little Petra which is smaller than Petra but also less touristy and rawer. The entrance to little Petra is very narrow so in Nabatean times, camels couldn't enter the secluded city. Traders came and went  and sold their goods on the market... Continue Reading →
