As I walked down the normally tranquil Kensington High Street, I noticed something rather unusual. The street was no longer tranquil and quiet. Instead you could hear chanting, something along the lines of "1. 2. 3. 4. Occupation no more. 5. 6. 7. 8. Israel is a terror state." Now for your average shopper this can be quite surprising, but the message hundreds of thousands of Londoners were trying to get across is that what Israel is doing is wrong. The murder of innocent Palest...

It has been only a week since I started a new Arabic course, and already I've learnt so much. It seems almost surreal, when just a few days ago I had no real grasp of the language, but now I can conjugate a sentence correctly and have a basic conversation with someone. So when I visit Dubai, or Morocco, or indeed Jordan, I will be able to communicate with people, in their language. Tell the taxi driver where I want to go, and order my dinner, without having to revert back to En...

Bonjour! It was only a couple of weeks that I paid a visit to the beautiful city of Paris. The city of love and so much more. A city like no other. A city full of culture, commerce, and contentment. The nature of my visit was an artistic one, but it ended up being much more than that, and within my 3 short days in the city I explored the Parisian way of life.. Each of my days would start with a metro journey, but unlike my usual gruelling commute to work, I enjoyed these...


TOXford Circus. The circus you wouldn't want to go to.

The road many Londoners have now dubbed TOXford Street, is in the limelight for having the highest levels of pollution in Europe and possibly the world. London's (in)famous shopping district popular with locals and tourist alike has unacceptably high levels of Nitrogen Dioxide. And it's not hard to see why, take a stroll down Oxford Street (albeit whilst holding your breath) and you'll notice the endless streams of red busses, broken only by the odd black cab. As the summer...

If I were a billionaire... What would you do if you had a billion pounds? What could you spend all that cold, hard cash on? I know what I'd spend it on. I'd buy a sports car and a mansion (or two). But seriously what could we do with a billion pounds to help? What could we do to be a good citizen of this world of ours? I don't need to go into detail, because the answer is simple really. If I had a billion pounds I would help the poor. I would help those in Africa, by giving...

Starting tomorrow Muslims across the world will begin fasting during the month of Ramadan. Being a British Muslim, I am often faced with questions like "Why do you fast?" or "What is Ramadan?" I believe it is important for us all to be aware of different cultures and religions so I thought I'd share a little bit of Ramadan with you all. Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar and it was in this month that the Qur'an was revealed to the prophet Muhammad. Musli...
