•••
Nothing quite prepares you for Tokyo. Not for the neon lights or the back-alleys buzzing with Yakitori grills, not for the city-sized fish markets or the ancient temples, the anime crazes or the constant smell of sushi. You can compare it to other cities, yet none are really quite like it. Tokyo is one of a kind, a blizzard of sights, smells and sounds. A th[...]

6 Reasons to Be a Morning Person when you Travel

•••
Every day my first alarm goes off at 7.05am - not the earliest, I know, but early as f*** for me. Of course I don't get up at 7.05am though. I snooze my alarm for ten minutes. And then another ten. And another. And maybe another. Eventually I get up into the shower and onto my bike. You can tell I'm not a morning person. Unless it's when I travel. When[...]

10 alternative things to do in Melbourne

•••
Melbourne is always on my mind, especially when life in the UK gets a bit tough. I recall the sunshine, the happy memories, the friends and the fun alternative things to do in Melbourne that don’t exist over here on this cold island, which is getting colder by the day after this recent referendum. With the fear of Brexit instilled in my tired British hear[...]
