24 hours in Krakow: From Absinthe to Salt Mines

•••
From absinthe to salt mines, Krakow certainly surprised me! I knew absolutely nothing about the city before my flight. Literally not a thing... to the point where I was at the airport waiting for my flight and realised I had Euros... and Poland has the Zloty (zł) currency. Cue me quickly kicking myself and then doing a dash to the mad expensive currency exch[...]

A weekend in one of London's finest hotels

•••
It was the first day of 5 weeks full of travel for me and my 2-year old son Atlas. We were to go see 6 countries, visit 10 different hotels and in the end go on a cruise through the Mediterranean Sea. It was to be an epic holiday and this is where it all began.

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[...]

•••
Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is a small and quaint city that is stuffed full of brilliant restaurants, cafes, fashion and culture. If you haven't been to Estonia yet, you should seriously consider putting it on your hit list this year or at least duck into the capital's Old Town - even if you only have 24 hours in Tallinn. If you fly to the Baltic[...]

There's a new guy in town and his name is Hugo

•••
Hugo is exactly my type. He's not too sweet. He's not too bitter. And it was love at first sip. We first met in Munich this spring, although originally, he's from Austria. And when we met again in Innsbruck this August, I totally fell for him. Hugo (pronounced WHO-GO) is the perfect cocktail for hot summer nights. And days. And sunny days in early autumn [...]
