Orvieto

Orvieto

An Italian Wedding Orvieto is a scenic hour or so train from Rome; sandwiched between the eternal city and elegant Florence. It is a quaint Italian town that looks down over rolling green hills and picturesque meadows from its majestic position on top of the hill.I stayed in a beautiful abandoned monetary now turned hotel, [...]

Rome

Rome

The eternal city; a cobbled mesh of picturesque streets opening up to beautiful piazzas and street side-cafes. Once the capital of the world, this ancient city is steeped in heritage, but for me Rome has everything. From gorgeous food to bars, ancient moments and ample places to set up for some people watching, it really [...]

Lisbon

Lisbon

Sun, old cobbled streets, iconic trams and most importantly ridiculously scrumptious food. For me, Lisbon has everything and I can’t wait until the next time I get to visit this incredible city. My visit was a long weekender, exploring the city via foot and taking a couple of trips to neighbouring sites and a nearby [...]

Antigua

Antigua

Blue skies, blue sea, white sand and all the rum you can dream of! I took a trip to the south-western corner of Antigua and stayed in a boutique hotel on Turners Beach called Keyonna Beach,  where the sand is fine, the sea is warm and the sun is (very) strong! - In hindsight, as [...]

Suffolk

Suffolk

An unassuming escape for those looking for peace, beautiful surroundings and nature.

My escape began in Cratfield, a village in northern Suffolk with a minute population of under 300. With [...]

Bruges

Bruges

The ideal weekend getaway, Bruges is a historic settlement packed with character and I was lucky enough to spend my 26th birthday strolling the picturesque cobbled streets here, in this medieval city. The city is built around a network of canals which all link to the North Sea. Waterways are lined with merchant houses, which [...]

Reflected in the name, this magical circular port is tucked into the north-east coast of Sardinia and boasts a perfect combination of luxury, charm and turquoise blue against a backdrop of rolling hills and idyllic beauty. The circular port reaches from the Gulf of Marinella to Cugnana and presents the perfect location to relax and [...]

Mauritius

Mauritius

If you’re looking for a tranquil escape, Pointe D’esny is the ideal location to sit back and lose yourself in the beauty of crystal clear waters, smooth white sand and a magical underwater world offered by the coral reefs. The beach boasts a kilometre of solitary fine sand meeting the calm waters of the Indian [...]

Boracay

Boracay

A speck in the Visayas, this island is a mere 7km in length and reachable only by ferry from one of the neighbouring island airports. You’ll probably arrive in a propeller jet similar to this one before hopping onto a local ferry for a small fee of 30 PHP. You will easily spot the traditional [...]
