Conquer London’s Beer Mile

•••
More eloquently known as the “Bermondsey Beer Mile” - the mile itself has actually grown to a rather greedy two miles. Based along the archways of a railway line that runs towards London Bridge Station, just off London's South Bank. In the past few years, the craft beer industry has boomed, not just in London, of course. But London, always happy to em[...]

TAXI: My Least Favourite Method of Transportation

•••
Ah, the humble taxi. King of the road; saviour of heeled-feet and eternal cause of digress and unease… Nothing grinds my gears more than taxis. They are by far the worst form of transport and often an ongoing source of distress when visiting foreign lands. And the worst of them - airport taxis! No doubt on many an early morning you have stepped she[...]

This Travel-Themed Mall Takes Visitors on a Real Journey

•••
Asia's vast shopping malls have become somewhat iconic in the modern-day. From the dinky hidden plazas of Hong Kong to the sprawling luxury malls of Singapore. Maybe shopping isn't a top priority for you on a trip - but there are certain cities where I think you'd be missing out on a real slice of culture by not indulging. Bangkok has to be one of them.

Take Advantage of Lonely Planet TV's Lockdown Freebie!

•••
Le sigh... We’re all depressed. We’re all stressed our 2020 plans are ruined. We’re all sitting at home going slightly stir crazy, shovelling carbs into our face holes, right?  Well, our friends at Lonely Planet have gone and done us a massive solid by making their Lonely Planet TV (which is usually a premium paid service) FREE to watch over the Covid-[...]

5 Offbeat Instagram Accounts to Follow

•••
  While I enjoy a sepia-toned beach or clinking cocktails gif as much as the next person, sometimes I can’t help but feel a little jaded by The Gram. It’s beautiful - really it is - a lot of it anyway. But, as I was supposed was unavoidable, Instagram has become somewhat of an enemy to itself. We see the sick pic, we want to go, we get there are [...]

WTF is Champing?

•••
https://www.instagram.com/p/BTgoPBklhuq/   A little known term that you may very well have never heard uttered previously - the name “champing” is a cute abbreviation of “church camping.” And church camping is, well, camping in churches - perhaps unsurprisingly. But I don’t mean flinging up a 2 man pop up in the cemetery - champing means actually [...]

Girls Just wanna Have Sun: Cancel Winter in Gran Canaria

•••
The Canary Islands are well known as one of the best winter sun options in Europe being that they fall on the same line of latitude as Southern Morocco, hovering around the Tropic of Cancer, which is exceptionally temperate year-round. But believe it or not, I (a Brit) had never ventured to the Canaries before - not even to escape the icky British winter[...]

All Aboard The Garden Route Express

•••
I’ve heard so many people note Cape Town as their favourite city over the years. I must admit it’s not somewhere that had really been on my radar until it started attracting attention as a “digital nomad’ hotspot a few years back - and as such many Europeans and Americans arrived to brave out the northern hemisphere winter in the superior warmth of the s[...]

An Ode to the Humble Window Seat

•••
Whether peppered with raindrops or sparkling through sun rays, the window seat remains unbiased. That is to say, there is no right experience to have from a window seat, and more so that once you take the seat, the seat takes you… of sorts Through dark tunnels and villages that whizz past with just a flash of blotched vibrance; and rooftops that curve[...]
