About this blog

Living in a big city and, at the same time, longing for the great outdoors can be a challenging arrangement. The concrete jungle is an overwhelming environment. Having spent more than 7 years in London, I’ve finally developed coping mechanisms to find retreat. While the struggle is ongoing, my relationship with the city is a love-hate one. It limits me in my attempt to spend time in nature while at the same time it invites me to discover small pockets of calm.

My formula for surviving the big city life is *drum rolls* a mix of constant discovery, escapism and attempts to get my shoes muddy. Oh, and sometimes getting away to foreign lands, to ‘recharge’, to escape the routine and the so-called convenience of modern life.
