Game of Thrones: Dragons Or Direwolves

The Lands of Ice and Fire are a perilous place. Staying alive till the end of the day can be a bit tricky. If you had the choice, which mythical creature would you want by your side? A bunch of cuddly pups aka the Furry Fang Brigade, or three scaly Eggs-On-Legs double decker flame throwers?…

Game of Thrones: Tribute to Arya Stark

Game of Thrones: The Dornish Effect

Ellaria Sand was a cool chick. Stylish, elegant, quick-witted and frank, everyone liked Ellaria. Well, everyone except Cersei. That was in Season 4, which by the way seems an awfully long time ago. Then she went back to Dorne, got a haircut and mutated into Super Bitch #1, possibly ousting Cersei from that dubious honour….

One Elephant is Killed Every 15 Minutes

Join the Movement. Help Save the Elephants. The Illegal Ivory Trade claims 36,000 elephants every year. That’s one every 15 minutes. At this rate none will be roaming in the wild in 2025.

Game of Thrones Season 6: Daenerys Prisoner

Yes, I know. I swore on everything holy, including my cats, that I would not sneak peek Game of Thrones Season 6 spoilers. But HBO uploaded photos the other day. And they’re everywhere; all over my Twitter feed, Google, the world. Seven Hells! And they are beautiful. I am weak, I lied – – I…

Elephant & Rhino Orphans: Please Adopt Me

Every year in Africa, somewhere between thirty and forty thousand elephants are poached for their tusks. We’re talking about 140 elephants each day.

Game of Thrones: To Snow or Not To Snow

Kit Harington loves to rain on my parade. After months of silence, sightings in Belfast and the Season 6 shoot, he still says he’s dead. Jon Snow is dead, gone to the dawgs, kicked the bucket. This is what he said on a morning show a couple of days ago. I’ve scooted over to the…

Game of Thrones: 5 Predictions

For the first time, GRR Martin book readers find themselves at an unprecedented disadvantage. They share the same “You Know Nothing” boat with humble mortals who only watch the TV show. The author, show runners, cast and crew are in the know. But they’re not telling. The rest of us are wandering around in the…

Three Idiots and A Funeral

I am not a bad person, I just have a warped sense of humour. If you’re anything like me you always laugh when disaster strikes, and tragedy turns into hilarity. Burying my parents was hilarious. I was about nineteen when Dad passed away, lost my Mum at twenty one. Funeral #1 I had no money…

Santorini Sunrise Sunset

I See Magic Every Day. I live on a beautiful island in a beautiful country. No season is the same, no sunset is the same and everywhere you go it looks different. Colours change – Springtime Pastel, Summer Gold, Autumn Fantasy. Winter is darker, more sombre – Curl up on your sofa with a hot chocolate time of year, another…

The Best Christmas Turkey

The best Christmas Turkey I ever made was from a recipe by Jamie Oliver. Turkey can get dry, so you have to cook it just right. Finding a decent turkey in Santorini is mission impossible. I needed one big enough to feed 10 to 12 people, but it had to fit in my oven. Jamie…

Christmas Kids

This is me and my bro. I think I was about five, maybe six. We loved Christmas – it was so exciting, right? Getting our advent calendars all sparkly and bright, opening the little windows each day. It was great. And then the night before Christmas finally came. Christmas Eve was magical. Mum used to…
