Athens - the New Mecca for Street Art?

Athens is undergoing a cultural turnover as a result of the financial crisis. Some are calling it “The New Berlin” as the next generation of artists and designers are turning to the streets to churn out social messages. In fact, they’re reinventing their city – independent of the outcome – building their own vision for the future. Last month, I was in Athens[...]

Filming and Dancing in Eastern Europe

Traveling with someone is a bit of a tricky thing. I think over the years I adopted a rather questionable habit that I’m actually more comfortable alone: You get to be just so flexible, are likely to meet more new people than otherwise and everything’s just that bit more intense, both the good and the bad days.

15 Ways to Feel like a Traveller in your own Home

We all know that feeling of post-travel blues.

But as much as these memories have touched my heart and as much as I know there is so much more to discover, sometimes I catch a glimpse of a sight here in England that [...]

Dear 13-year-old me

To say my teenage years were a rollercoaster is a massive euphemism. They were confusing, dramatic, full of absolutely pointless fears and excessive self-doubt. During a recent phone conversation with my 17-year-old sister, I thought about how cool it would be to give some advice to my 13-year-old version that would have never ever dared to believe that she [...]

Haka Tours: Not your average group travel

Have you ever wanted to swim with 400 dolphins in Kaikoura, swing Tarzan-like through canyons, or go skydiving over the Southern Alps? These are the things that the most ambitious bucket lists are made of and with a small company in New Zealand, you can easily cross a few life goals off your own list. Haka Tours is a tour operator owned by a team of passiona[...]
