Liberty: The Shopping Emporium of London

•••
When it comes to large, established department stores, Harrods seems to always be the tourist fixation when visiting London… but think of Liberty when you want to get less mainstream and more eclectic.

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[...]

10 Things I Hate (and LOVE) about Travelling with You

•••
Valentine's Day will always be received with a mixed reception, depending so much on your "Relationship Status", a term I hate in itself. When I was single, I sort of half-loathed, half-loved it because despite all indications to the contrary I would hope against hope that come 14th February I would get a mystery Valentine through my post box.

Adventure in the Pyrenees, Catalonia

•••
In addition to the breathtaking landscapes, cute mountain villages, local festivals and great gastronomy, the Pyrenees can offer a lot to an adrenaline junky or one with a thirst for the slightly crazy. Often overlooked in favour of their bigger neighbours, the Alps, the Pyrenees offer as good a variety of sports (including good skiing in the winter) but wit[...]

The 10 Commandments of Koh Tao-ism

•••
So January, my dreary nemesis… we meet again. As the whirling backdrop of festive fun and social engagements fades into the distant glow of Christmas past, January strikes with early mornings, old routines and no more chocolate for breakfast. Boo. Perfect time then to skip the country, throw those boring, sensible New Year’s resolutions to the wind and turn [...]

10 awesome things to do in Tokyo

•••
Tokyo, Japan: the largest city in the world. I was expecting blinding neon lights, agoraphobia-inducing crowds, an exhausting pace. I feared the jam-packed subway at rush hour, the feeling of disappearing in a human tide, the oppression of the tall buildings obscuring the sky. I was prepared to be brutally swallowed by a monster metropolis — with the hope th[...]
