5 Romantic dates to have in Lisbon

•••
Ah Lisbon! This place fills me with many happy and sunny feelings - it's a place that truly captured my heart during my brief love affair with the city a few months ago. When I went in September, I managed to catch some sweet sweltering heat before the summer bid a sad farewell. The city in all it's hot splendour imprinted it's shabby chic architecture, tile[...]

8 Reasons to Visit Cluj-Napoca, Romania

•••
Have you ever heard about the European Youth Capital? Every year a European city gets the chance to step into the spotlight, showcase its young side through various social and cultural activities, and thereby increase its reputation as a cool, young city. This year’s selected winner is the Transylvanian city Cluj-Napoca. As I have studied and lived in [...]

5 cool things to do in Edinburgh

•••
I'm a Glasgow girl through and through - after two years of living here, people can certainly pick that up from my accent, and I love it. They might even be able to pick it up from my behaviour, as a friend of mine put it very adequately after the police had been called to our hotel on a recent trip, because I was chatting to loudly with my balcony neighbour[...]

Boracay - An Island Paradise

•••
The first thing you notice about Boracay is the colour. Cerulean skies sink into seas that are fifty shades of blue and green, fringed by milk-white, velvet sands. If paradise printed postcards, surely they would look a little something like this? Although I’ve been lucky enough to travel many parts of Asia, the Philippines have always eluded me. Mayb[...]

•••
Sand dunes, camels and oriental markets, or glassy high risers, cats and crazy nightlife - what is your idea of Tel Aviv? Mine was probably a little bit of both. Having met Israelis before, I knew Tel Aviv was a city that never sleeps. I knew it was by the seaside and surrounded by desert. I knew it was considerably secular and welcoming. I had heard about t[...]

How to throw a Bachelorette party in Charleston

•••
I have fond memories of my time spent in Charleston, South Carolina – it was only befitting that I return there to plan my friend Lindsey’s Bachelorette party. My college friends and I have a very special bond, and even though we live in different parts of the world, Charleston is a place that can always bring us together. But this happened to be the first t[...]

24 hours in Soho with W London

•••
London is this huge boiling pot of cultures that is centuries old and iconic all around the world. It’s a huge maze of a place that is constantly buzzing with life and things to do/see/eat, so sometimes a trip there can be quite intimidating. I mean, where do you start?? All the different boroughs have different things to offer to a tourist, but if you wish[...]

Romantic streets, perfect wine, intricate alley-ways, delicious ice cream, stunning gothic architecture, ridiculously fabulous food… have I got your attention? Good.

50 Reasons Why It Might Be Time To Go Home

•••
I love to travel, so please don’t let the title of this post make you think otherwise! But if you’re a traveller who tends to take fatty chunks of time off to live the life of a backpacking nomad, you’ll understand that sometimes it can get to the point where you can feel, in your gut, that it is just time to go home. And hey, that’s ok! I remember after 8 m[...]
