Last night we had another culinary delight that tickled the tastebuds!
The amazing thing about food is that you can start your dish with one thing in mind (in this case the spicy tastes of Zimbabwe) and with just the additions of a few spices it can go in a completely different direction! Straight to Italy!

Soup has seemed to be the theme of the week with the colder weather coming in.
Yesterday we had a bag of carrots and quarter head of broccoli in the fridge that need to be used.

One of my main duties in my job as a live-in carer is cooking.
Some of my clients are cool to sit back and let me work my magic and some others like to make kitchen magic with me!
Since the end of August I have been paired with a guy in Norwich who is a wizz in the kitchen.
Due to the fact that I absolutely loath peanut butter with a vengeance and he really wanted a peanut butter curry he thought of a way to still make the curry, but delete peanut butter from the process.

Around an hour drive from Krakow lies the town of Oswiecim. During the years of 1940 and 1941 around 17,000 Polish residents were expelled from the area and 8 surrounding villages destroyed.
All this so the Nazis could keep the existence of Auschwitz-Birkenau a secret.

On trying to find a suitable holiday destination with my boyfriend I had one request: I wanted to ride a camel in the desert.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley
Last year Prince Harry visited Colorado for the Warrior Games. The Games gave him the idea to bring a similar idea to London and the Invictus Games were born.

Edinburgh has been a city on my must-visit ever since coming over to the UK (and possibly before that) and last week I finally got to go, and for a good cause too!
Last month I got a call for work asking if I would like to be a volunteer on a Back Up Course.

As the Tuesday previous was payday, me and my roommate decided it would be worth it to splash our cash on tickets to the Sunday and relive our childhood with Backstreet Boys and Five!

On Thursday I caught up with my Australian mate Nathan.
It was a lovely Summer’s day so we decided to check out one of the eight Royal parks that are dotted around London.
Richmond Park is in the South West of London and dates back to the 13th Century! It is the largest of the parks and is also a national nature reserve.

During my stint in Turkey I tried to partake in every traditional cultural activity – from the food to the relaxation.
One of the things that I (and 3 other girls) tried was the Turkish bath. Also known as the Hamam, it is a place for relaxation or cleansing.
