Something green for my St Patrick’s Day lunch - a green omelette. Yes, it’s a little browner than it should be, but it still counts 😄😄
Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone!! 💚🇮🇪☘️🍻

A new addition to my library, some classic French literature - Charles Nodier’s “Smarra” & “Trilby”.
Fun fact: “Trilby” was the story that inspired the libretto for “La Sylphide”. In 1870, Petipa created a full-length ballet version of “Trilby” to music by Yuli Gerber.

This year has been a year of both happiness and sadness for me, but there are many happy memories to look back on and cherish.
2018 was a year of adventure in which I traveled to several different and exciting places for the first time. It has also been a year in which I have reunited with dear friends and made new friends. And of course, it was the year of Petipa’s bicentenary, which saw some of us come together to celebrate his legacy with conferences, new publications and Alexei Ratmansky’s reconstructions of “Harlequinade” and “La Bayadère”.
May 2019 bring more happy times and memories for us all and may we see tensions in the world die down and peace bringing us together.
Happy New Year everyone!! Bonne année!! ¡Feliz año nuevo! Felice anno nuovo!! Frohes neues Jahr!! С Новым годом!! 🙏🏻💖🎉🎊🍾🥂🍻👫👭👬🇪🇺🇮🇪🇬🇧🇷🇺🇫🇷🇩🇪💟☮️

Three of the most important sites in Berlin - the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, the Memorial to the LGBT people persecuted under Nazism and fragments of the Berlin Wall.

These sites and memorials show how Germany has come a long way from its dark times when facists and bigots ruled and almost destroyed their country. They set an example to all of us that we can all learn from the mistakes we make. Germany is certainly a nation that has learned from its mistakes and ultimately conquered division and fascism. Berlin still bears marks of the damage done during the Second World War as a way of reminding everyone that war is bad. The fragments of the Berlin Wall remind us that division is never the answer and that we should build bridges, not walls.

I can only hope and pray that the rest of the world can follow this example and we can all learn from our mistakes 🙏🏻🇩🇪🇪🇺

Happy Halloween! Did you know that Ireland is the land where it all began? Around 3,000 years ago, back in pagan Ireland, the Celts believed that the dead returned to earth on Samhain, the last day of the year (October 31st). Because of this, they lit bonfires, offered sacrifices and paid homage to the deceased. Some even disguised themselves in costumes of animal skins to hide from the phantom visitors! How will you be disguising yourself today? 🎃👻 #loveireland #ireland #irland #irlande #irlanda #discoverireland #visitireland #instaireland #halloween #samhain
