On the trail of explorers from the past…

Hey guys! Sorry for the brief hiatus, but I have to say I’ve been quite busy (and lazy) lately.
So first of all, yes! I moved back to London, finally! And it feels so good. I really missed this place. So, after settling down (and spending all my savings in furnitures for my new place, damn) and getting used to my new job, I finally found some time to go back to explore the city and its wonders. And of course… I needed to write a blog post about it!

So, few days ago I took a train on the Piccadilly line and got off at Hammersmith, Zone 2. Nice place, but the bus stop I needed was closed. Bummer.

Me and my friend (whom I forced to join me the night before) had a nice, long walk. Crossed the Thames river on a bridge, and we got to the bus stop.

We took the bus number 209 towards Mortlake Bus Station, got off at the last stop, and walked to St Mary Magdalene’s church yard. Why? To visit Sir Richard Burton’s mausoleum.

THE ART OF TAKING A SELFIE

THE ART OF TAKING A SELFIE

Like it or not, taking “selfies” has become a true competition. There are plenty of apps you can use to take the best selfie of your life, and every new smartphone now focuses on its inner camera like no phone ever did before.

Taking a selfie it’s not only a way to show yourself: it can say a lot about you.

My coworkers were kinda amazed by the way I take beautiful selfies without having a super pro reflex camera, photoshop, lightroom and more.
I just snap, go through some apps, and the selfie is online. Wanna know how and what are my favorite apps?

TOP 10 “ONE MAN ARMY” MOVIES – PART 1

TOP 10 “ONE MAN ARMY” MOVIES – PART 1

Hello everyone!
You probably didn’t know this, but I’m a major cinephile! I love sitting in a cinema holding a big warm basket of popcorns, surrounded by the smell of sugar and melted butter, drinking iced tea while immersing myself in a new adventure on the big screen.

I go to the cinema a lot, and I also spend a lot of time on Netflix with my friends and probably spend too much of my money in blue ray discs (and dvds back in the days)…
But anyway! I thought about this post quite a lot.
What is the point in having a blog, if I don’t post about my passions? So I decided to write a TOP 10 list of my favorite movies of all time.

As soon as I started writing down the first draft, I realized it wouldn’t be possible for me to choose only ten films without leaving out of the list too many pearls. So here we go with the first slot of movies that I love: I’ll start with the ONE MAN ARMY category.

-WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY “ONE MAN ARMY”? It’s as simple as it sounds. All the films listed below feature a main male character, usually with a dramatic background, single by choice or widowers. Some of them are ex soldiers, spies, secret agents or serve/served in the special forces; they’re usually cold, overpowered and somehow terribly attractive. Some of them may end up in brief romances or sexual encounters with dangerous women or damsels in distress, but most of the times they refuse all these gorgeous ladies, faithful to an impossible relationship or a dead/kidnapped wife or girlfriend. They can face multiple enemies at the same time with only one gun, and have insane melee combat skills.

If you’re in the mood for great action sequences and don’t know what to watch, grab a soda and some treates babe! Here’s my TOP 10 “ONE MAN ARMY” MOVIES.
