London Snow - PinayFlyingHigh.com-405
While many people were dreading about the London snow, I was secretly wishing for it to last longer. I know, I know that’s devilish of me as I am aware of the negative impact it had for the majority of people living here specially within the travel industry with all the flight cancellations and airport closures – but I just think a blanket of snow makes a place prettier than it already is. Do you agree?

My love for Kingston-Upon-Thames started accidentally – two days after we moved to London, I had a job interview here. As a non-Londoner, I had no idea what and where Kingston is. Never even knew it existed as it’s never mentioned on London guides or tourist maps. After the interview, I went for a walk towards their town centre and fell in love at first sight. I was blown away by the quaintness of it, i

Saying Thanks With A Bottle Of Whiskey

February 5, 2018
The Greek Mister celebrated his birthday a couple of days ago and I’ve always struggled on deciding what to give him for special occasions. He’s the simplest guy in the whole wide world – not into gadgets, not into clothes nor watches and definitely not into cars (not that I’d give him a car for his birthday, what is he? The King of England?) If there’s one thing he’s really very

Natural History Museum Ice Rink, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com
Has it been that long? That’s what my passport stamp says, that it has already been eight months when I left the desert life for good and started my adventures in the land of greener pastures (quite literally!). Eight months of living in bliss, it still feels so surreal to me. I know it might not mean a lot to some and it could somehow sound shallow but let me tell you my story.   When I was a kid living

Things To Do in Kingston | Have A Pint At The Boater’s Inn In Canbury Gardens

Canbury Gardens, Kingston, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com-101
This is my neighborhood. WOW! I’ve never thought I’d actually say that when describing one of the boroughs of London. It’s been 6 months now since we’ve moved from the Middle East to London and yet, I still can’t believe that I actually live in one of the most beautiful boroughs in one of the most famous cities in the world, in my opinion. :p This is Kingston-Upon-Thames, a mere 30-min
