Within the “boulder-like walls,” which were inspired by the geological process of the large-scale movements of the earth‘s crust and its tectonic forces, programs include a dynamic climbing hall, temporary accommodation zone, fitness gym and maintenance areas.

He indulges in casual, careless sex, the consequences of which are inconvenient for him and dire for his female partners.

I have to admit that January is not the best time of the year to visit the country. It was freezing cold, around minus fifteen degrees.

Daily Alexa Chung miss-sheffield: 9 Things We’ve Learnt About Alexa Chungby Jessica Lacey Last night I had dinner with Alexa Chung.
