From Ancient Egyptian relics brought by Cleopatra’s influence, sacred statues of iconic figures to Leonardo Da Vinci, Michaelangelo and Raphael’s paintings, the Vatican Museum holds some of history’s most important pieces of art, making it the second largest and the most important museum in the world. I lost track of the number of churches and […]

Something strange happened yesterday… I walked through the beautiful ancient ruins of the Palatine hill into the Forum with a nostalgic feeling hanging over my head. Everything seemed familiar to me. Never has a city captured me this much. Intoxicated by it, the most beautiful city in the world… It was only when I neared […]
Rome. Ahhhh. At long last. We meet. For many years, I’ve dreamt of visiting the Colosseum and that dream has been achieved. To be able to walk through the ancient ruins where the Gladiators trained to entertain, fighting to the death and even with exotic animals in what was once Ancient Rome, to walk into […]
Walking through the beautiful streets of Florence, the intricate detail on the walls and within the architecture astounded me. The Cathedral, the leather markets, the language, the hand gestures, the stoned walls… Then, I walked into a photography exhibition raising awareness of poorly treated animals in farms, why it’s a good choice to become vegan […]
After 16 days at sea, my cruise has come to an end. I learnt how to relax, made wonderful new friends, explored cities and sights I had always fantasized about (Tenerife, Malaga, Cartagena, Barcelona, Nice, Florence, Pisa, Rome) and most importantly, delivered presentations on the Amazon Souls, Berbers of Ourika Valley, The Lost Nation Road […]
Villafranche, Nice. What a breathtaking view of the French Riviera. I feel truly blessed to soak in all these sights. Nice, France. Merci.
Happy St. George’s Day from Barcelona, Spain. Here, it’s considered a romantic day where women are given red roses and men are gifted books. I walked through these cultural streets into a plaza where I found a stall set up, “1010 ways to buy without money”. I took a peek and the one I chose […]
Cartegena is literally an archaeological site scattered with ancient Roman ruins with more and more relics being found every day. Archaeologists excavate away in what used to be a banqueting room as I explore what is to become part of an ancient Roman park in a few years time. The Atrium Building was built at […]
Tenerife was interesting traversing through the old town in La Laguna to see the detailed architecture in their very many cathedrals. Such a small island… I bumped into a woman by the name of Savita, from India and for the first time in my life, I met someone who won the lottery and decided to […]
I’m really loving the new Amazon Souls film poster… The film will broadcast today on SHORTSTV International in the USA so keep a look out!
