Hello! I'm Caterina and I live in East London with husband Chris and two cocker Spaniel puppies.

By day, I'm burrowed up in an office in Fitzrovia working away in my advertising job and happily taking on the chance to dine at London's most fun places!

By night I'm an avid documentary photographer, and I let photography lead all the stories here in journographie.

Off-the-clock, I hang around my local area in Hackney and find out what new cafes have popped up, or mindlessly cycle the Hackney / London Fields / Shoreditch route for no apparent reason.

I'm also a big foodie and enjoy trying out simple recipes that would cheat even the most advanced of palates, all with local, fresh, high quality produce. My most famous recipe is for these insane protein-packed Nutella Pancakes.

But my biggest weakness is travel. I'll get on a plane anytime, and love planning budget trips abroad either for the long weekend or the long-haul. Here's an awesome 2-weeks in Japan itinerary to get you started.

I do hope you hanging around here for a while!
