All good things must come to an end, and July marked the end of nearly three months of non-stop travel (Read what I was up to in April, May and June).

There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self. – Aldous Huxley It’s three days into December, and I’m still trying to make sense of November – I think I will be for quite a […]
