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[...]

13 things to love about Corfu

•••
I must admit Greece was not my first choice for places to visit this summer, but when I saw how many of my friends opted for Corfu, I simply had to find out what the fuss was all about and booked a ticket with Aegean Airlines. After a short and comfortable flight we were greeted with sunny skies, warm air and plenty of smiles to what would become one of my n[...]

Ringed by the Carpathian Mountains sits the quaint town of Brasov, in one of Romania's most well-known regions; Transylvania. Characterised by its medieval Saxon walls, gothic architecture and cute cafes, Brasov is a pleasant destination to explore.

A magical family escape in the mountains of Salzburger Land in Austria

•••
I have an undeniable love for Austria and the Alps. For the longest time I identified as a beach kind of gal but every single time I travel to the mountains I feel it - this sense of freedom and a certain closeness to nature. So now, when someone asks me if I prefer mountains or beach - I can't pick one over another, both are an absolute guarantor for a grea[...]

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[...]

De-busting myths about Iceland

•••
What comes to mind when someone mentions Iceland? Chances are it’s probably those dreamy green Aurora lights in the dark night sky. It’s no secret that Iceland’s nature is a wonder to be explored, home to surreal landscapes which are probably the inspiration behind many Windows screensavers. Chasing the Northern Lights is a popular tourist activity in Ic[...]

Why an upcoming quiet season in Iceland is the best thing you could wish for

Places like Hawaii have black sand beaches and active volcanoes. New Zealand has accessible glacier. Greenland has mighty icebergs. The US have gorges. Canada has enormous waterfalls. Finland has the northern lights. Scotland has puffins. Russia has reindeer. But only Iceland has all of these things combined. Couple it with the warming effect of the gulf[...]

Catalonia beyond Barcelona: where gastronomy meets art

•••
Before visiting the South of Catalonia, my knowledge of this Spanish region was limited to Barcelona. I never knew a that the popular Spanish breakfast pan con tomate (bread with tomato) originated from here, or that it’s a land rich in carob trees but most importantly that it is a place four world-class artists have in common: architect Antoni Gaudí, painte[...]

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 [...]
