Lana - a slice of paradise in the heart of South Tyrol

•••
Gorgeous sunny weather, stunning nature, incredible food, luxurious hotels, friendly locals. I'd say these are the five pillars that any wonderful holiday is based on. Added bonus points for great wine and lots of things to do. South Tyrol is exactly that to me which is why I keep going back nearly every year. It's Europe at its best because it effortlessly [...]

5 Offbeat British Festivals to Catch this Summer

•••
Ah, the British summertime! When wobbly bits and sunburnt noses adorn every grassy knoll and poorly-laid beach towel, and it's finally acceptable once again to eat ice cream for breakfast. Although if we're thinking of a super traditional British summer, it's probably raining. But no less, festival season is upon us. But I don't mean Glasto, or Edinburgh[...]

The Little Luxury Every Traveler Deserves

•••
Flowers and date night. Two of the (many) pillars on which my relationship stands. I feel so strongly about flowers, that I interrupted a perfectly great evening in the heart of Lisbon to stand in the middle of a plaza and argue about the simple significance of flowers, with my boyfriend Kris.

Hotels we love: The Arosea in South Tyrol
