Nicola Leigh Stewart

Nicola Leigh Stewart, originally from Leeds in the north of England, now calls Paris her home. When not writing about, among other things, her favourite Parisian bistros and where to find the best hot chocolate for a rainy day, you might find her trying to keep up with the current art exhibitions in Paris and London, or tackling the French classics in her book club. Her favourite places? Madrid, her former home, the idyllic Greek islands, and Corsica. Dream destination? Back to Iceland, to experience the country when there isn't a snow storm, and Japan, to hike up Mount Fuki and visit Yakushima, a magical island which has inspired the films of Hayao Miyazaki.
