My family and I spent a lovely week in Beirut and the Lebanese mountains for my sister Yasmine’s wedding. I’ll share some moments here.
This trip has been packed. For someone who has made it her mission this time to ‘chill’, I’ve done a lot, met new friends and caught up with old ones. This sojourn has, however, been a bit of a challenge, at moments even regretful…I don’t know why…well, I do but I won’t tell, for various reasons. Funny enough, […]
This is my fourth visit to one of my beloved Grove Cottages. This time: Cobblers Cottage. My companions are my sister-in-law Jana, her baby bump (my nephew) and, of course, Eve. The cottage is breath-taking and as always exceeds my expectations. I still can’t believe how generous people are with sharing these lovely ‘homes’.
Another trip come and gone. I must go back soon. I must. I need to.
This part of my London trip starts October 3rd. On the advice of a friend, I visited Erno Goldfinger’s home on Willow Street in Hampstead. I didn’t take any photos there but I left the house with a sense of having been there before. It evoked feelings of life in Iran in the mid-70s, even though the home […]
This is the fifth part of my last trip to London (I’m posting a week’s worth of pics at a time) spanning September 26th to October 2nd. In terms of reuniting with old friends, meeting new ones and visiting family, this week was my busiest.
It’s been a busy few days since my sister and I arrived in London on September 10. You may notice that there isn’t a Part I to this, and that’s because I started this trip’s log with an Airplane Timelines post. I have very confused organizational methods.
It’s a long trip to London this time and I’m wondering if I made the right decision to stay for this long. It’s just that I’m at a crossroads and need to be here to know exactly how I want to conduct the next few years of my life.
This is part two of Eve’s adventures with my friend (and her friend now) Fatima Fayez. When Fatima sent me these, she included her own narrative. I loved reading Eve’s days unfold via Fatima’s Whatsapp messages! So I’m going to post them here along with the photos she took.
A few weeks ago I introduced Eve to my friend Fatima Fayez. The two got on like a house on fire, and now they are the best of travel buddies. Although Fatima was great at showing Eve around Kuwait’s finer sites, it is this trip that Eve will remember most dearly. Not only was she […]
In this post I’m including our last days in London and visit to Leatherhead to see N, T and the girls.
I haven’t posted in ages, I know. But this is the first real chance I get to do it. So I have so much to catch up on.
This is long overdue. I have been meaning to write a post about my visit to my new friends David Habchy and Hussein Nakhal’s Junieh studio since November. I ‘met’ David via Instagram (you must check out his gallery here) and flew to Beirut in October mainly to meet him. I wanted to explore his […]
I am finding being in the UK rather difficult this time. I don’t know if it’s my long stay (two weeks) when I’m missing my kids already, Naz leaving tonight or the loneliness I’m feeling without *him*. It’s not like I hadn’t been here before without him in my life, but somehow it’s sadder this […]
