2016 has been a marvelous year, a year I will always remember for its accomplishments and getting over many implanted fears and phobias. When I look back thinking what was the biggest achievement of the year and whether I reached my goals, I can’t think of a single event. I had my first solo […]
There are many great hotels around the world but let’s be real if this hotel was good enough for Sophia Loren to stay then ofcourse it should be very special! It doesn’t take much to fall in love with Rooms hotel Tbilisi. “Rooms” is part of the international group Design Hotels. I fell in love […]

Live TV was the most terrifying experience of my life. Few months ago I was interviewed LIVE on Bahrain TV did I mention it was LIVE ! It was my first live interview which explains the anxiety but actually it went better than expected. You can catch my interview from minute 33:50.
