London nightlife reminds me so much of how old I am right now. Going to the hip and happening places here on a weekend stresses me out if I’m being honest. The crowd, the noise and the drunk people trying to stand on their own two feet around me give me panic attacks. Many moons ago, I could pull an all-nighter dancing like there’s no tomorrow in a club somewhere in the lively city of Dubai. We’ll

I really do believe that I’ve made the right decision to live in Southwest London, away from the hustle and bustle of the city proper but filled with so many things to do and places to visit.

I’ve just returned from my third visit to the wonderful island of Sri Lanka and once again, I’m reminded how very unfit I am. The island has so much to offer specially for the adventurous travelers which unfortunately, isn’t me at all.
