Travel with kids: Lincoln, the best kept secret in England 

Jul 07 2021
A new day trip experience by train has just been launched by London North Eastern Railway (LNER) to take travel-hungry Brits from King’s Cross to Lincoln in less than two hours. I was lucky enough to be one of the very first passengers to board this train full of surprises. 
 
If you want to escape the hectic life of the British Capital, Lincoln is the ideal town and has lots of history and fun activities for the whole family. When I was asked to visit Lincoln, I had to check the geographic location on the map. I am embarrassed to say that after 23 years living in Britain, I haven’t yet explored enough of my host country. Going to a new city tour without expectations is probably the best way to have a good time. Coming out of lockdown, Lincoln has been my first travel outside London in a very long time and a great surprise.

Art exhibition review: Paula Rego at Tate Britain 7 July – 24 October 2021

Jul 06 2021

This week, Tate Britain opens the UK’s largest and most comprehensive retrospective of the work of Portuguese artist Paula Rego  (b.1935). Rego is uncompromising in her extraordinary imaginative power and redefined figurative art as well as revolutionised the way in which women are represented. The exhibition tells the story of Paula’s remarkable life, highlighting the personal nature of much of her work and the socio-political context in which it is rooted. It reveals her broad range of references, from comic strips to history paintings. Featuring over 100 works including collage, paintings, large-scale pastels, drawings and etchings, the show spans Paula Rego’s early work from the 1950s to her richly layered, staged scenes from the 2000s. I loved this exhibition which deepens my knowledge of this artist and her talented family including Rego’s husband and painter Victor Willing and their son and filmmaker Nick Willing. I had the pleasure to meet them a few years ago at a retrospective about Victor Willing in Hastings.

London viewpoint: Up at The O2 and Icon Outlet reviews

Jul 02 2021

The summer is a great season to climb Up at The O2 to admire London from a different view point. The unusual landscape of Canary Wharf and the South East of the capital is constantly evolving and every time I do the climb (it’s my 3rd) I see new buildings and new attractions. The climb involves mild physical activity, it’s fun to do with friends and when you reach the top, you are rewarded with a unique perspective of one of the most amazing cities on the planet.
