Recently, I have been re-living my time in Krakow through subtle reminders in recent events. From cultural similarities found in a recent trip to Budapest to the series on BBC 1’s ‘World On Fire’ or news few weeks ago, where Krakow was named the best city break destina...

It was a beautiful summer morning, not a single cloud in the sky as we woke up to the sound of the alarm in our hotel room on a nice Saturday in Nice (no pun intended!)

Artist: (with a lovely smile) Good, thanks, how are you?

June: I am well, thanks. Having a little tour round the museum. It’s great. Some good medieval stuff.

It was just before midnight as we peered into the absolute bleak of darkness. We beheld the lights in layers of glory of shades of green and lavender north of the arctic skies and pinkish red, westerly.

Common Reykjavík, enchant me with a combination of white snow that...
