Set fire to the rain

Did you know that ‘Pluviophile’ (n) is a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days.

Christy Anne Martin wrote ‘She’s in the clouds, heavy and dark, waiting to fall like rain’.

Petrichor (n) is defined as the scent of rain on dry earth.

Truth- you can’t have a rainbow without rain.

Spoken like a true man, Bob Marley said “Some people feel the rain, others just get wet”.

I LOVE the sound of rain.

Storms don’t last forever.

“I promise these storms are only trying to wash you clean” Jessica Kateoff

Pyjamas all day.

Brontide is the low rumble of a distant thunder.

The smell of rain.

Every raindrop has a different diameter.

Fun fact – Umbrellas were originally designed to protect people from the sun.

Tea, Tea, Tea, Tea, Coffee & socks.

For now, Adele, set fire to the rain…

A short trip to Edinburgh


It’s safe to assume that my travel buddy and I were one of the very few sober passengers on the train ride from London to Edinburgh. Who would have thought Beer is a breakfast cuisine for some?

The most serene train ride to date, this city sure does not disappoint. Grass, yellow leaves, combined with coloured rooftops and ocean views is a recipe for the perfect landscape.

It looks just like Hogwarts grounds, a fairytale city, one similar to Prague.

Edinburgh has many tea and coffee houses, some of which have played host to famous personalities who wrote few of their greatest novels, an example, J K Rowling. But more specifically it’s the whisky bars and Scottish kilt fashion stores scattered around the city that sets it apart from any other destination.

One to visit you ask? My response is most definitely YES!

This very moment ..


This very moment is a moment that I’ve imagined, played in my mind over and over again and wondered if it was possible, but I can now say that my simple dream has come true.

It is on my own, in Paris, in the rain that I’ve dreamed of, so this very moment it’s raining, it’s cold, it’s dark and I am sitting at a café, listening to Jazz music, sipping tea and writing so this very moment my dream is reality.

To talk about something right now would be deceiving so I’ll make it personal. To those who have heard me speak about this for over ten years all I can say is if you dream it, you believe it, with limits you can achieve it.

I am left with the challenge of walking back in this pouring rain but in this very moment if I was to choose to be drenched anywhere, Paris city would be it!
