I’m back to my mission to explore where Londoners get caffeinated and today’s pick is Prufrock Coffee. I’ve heard about this place for some time already and I finally got a chance to visit it. Also, it’s in my UK Bucket List and I’m very determent to tick as many boxes as possible in the next 12 months. The first thing I like about it is location. It’s a bit…

  I know I know, for some people the idea of having The Bucket List seems stupid and too cliche, but for me it’s the only way to organize myself and plan my time. I’ve been in this situation before – after a year of living in Budapest, one week before leaving this beautiful city I realized that I hadn’t done a lot of things I wanted to. I know…

Instagram is the fastest-growing social media platform with over 400,000 million active users each month. It’s become more than just a platform to share your snapshots of everyday life: it’s a marketplace, search engine and, most importantly, a community. It’s a 24/7 platform and the best way to reach people of almost all interests and demographics. I’ve been asked many times about how to grow an Instagram account, so after…

Today is 2 years since I moved to London. Even though I was super excited, I was deeply sad to leave my family and friends in Saint Petersburg. A woman at Russian border control tried to cheer me up saying that my passport is valid for the next 10 years and I can visit home often. The moment I landed in London I was back to my normal mood of…

When my parents ask me what I do in London in my free time I say ‘I love doing street photography!’. They are like: ‘What? You just photograph a street? Like any street? A road? A wall? What?” Well…yes and no I answered. And then they came to visit me in London and my dad was taking photos of everything: signs, tube, houses, cars, etc. I found myself giving him…

A few weeks ago one guy left a comment under one of my photos on Instagram saying: ‘It’s interesting how do you manage to capture empty streets of London!’ I didn’t realize that indeed all my photos tend to be without people on it. The truth is that I just wait for the right moment when there are no people passing. But then I thought that you can actually achieve ’emptiness’…

I love to travel and I guess I’m not alone having such a hobby. And I don’t mean having 2 holidays per year in a hot country where you spend all the days on the beach. I mean looking for any opportunity to go somewhere new, even within the country you live in. I should say it’s very addictive. Once you start travel frequently you just can’t stop. But I…

I continue exploring the city in the way I like the most – getting into the area and just walking on the streets with a camera. Also I was looking for a big and spacious place where I can do my work with a laptop and not being destructed. TBC (The Book Club) is like 3 in 1. It’s the place to hang out with friends playing table tennis, to…
