The Most Relaxing Music Ever

According to a member of The European Society of Cardiology, listening to music reduces your cortisol levels and your blood pressure.

Marconi Union, a trio from Manchester has created with the help of sound therapist a soothing tune called Weightless which has proven to have incredibly good relaxing properties.

You will need to listen to it for at least five minutes and you will start feeling its calming effects.

 It worked for me!

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater: review

All the Crooked Saints
When Maggie Stiefvater writes a book, I read it. It has been this way since I found the Shiver trilogy and she became one of my favourite authors.

In this book there is magic in every word. Just like if there was a spell put on the readers, you will feel compelled to read it, to know about the Soria family and their miracles, to learn about the darkness that haunts all of us and how to get rid of it.

All the main characters are very well developed . The one that I liked the most was Marisita Lopez with her wedding dress covered in butterflies and her heart first full of guilt and then full of love.

If I lived close to a desert, I would have travelled there to read it in the right atmosphere !

Reed Flute Cave in Guilin, China.

This impressive cave is just 5 kilometres far from Guilin and it's a must for all the tourists visiting the area. People used to make flutes with the reeds that grew outside the cave and that's why it's called that way. Unfortunately for me it was the cave of the "noisy Chinese tourist guide with a loudspeaker" and although it was an amazing sight I just could not enjoy it as much as I wanted.

Remember to bring good shoes because it is slippery and bear in mind that there may be large groups of tourists as well.
