Nosing around East London: Crate Brewery in Hackney

A couple of weeks ago, Mum called to communicate her spontaneous decision to spend the weekend in London, and two days after… here she was! When I have guests over I normally plan activities and dinners in detail, but this time, because of this short notice, and to tell you…

Shimogamo: authentic Japanese cuisine in London

I’m sure many are enjoying this fantastic London weather! Summer is finally here! (and so are the Olympic games and the Olympic lanes unfortunately, but that’s a different story altogether). To celebrate the good weather and to reward the hard work of the past weeks at our new jobs, last…

Saturday morning run
