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[...]

The obsession with travelling

We all love travelling. The fact that you're on this travel platform and clicked to read this specific post already says something. As the travel market grows and tourism booms, everybody has the travel bug. Being a digital nomad in Bali, getting your Eat, Play, Love on in Italy or roadtrippin' across Europe were once the dream.

When being a total tourist is encouraged

•••
You’re probably thinking ‘what is Eleni on about?’ So many guides tell us to find the local spots and offer insider knowledge as that’s where the real magic is. I’m not arguing the opposite, in fact, I agree and I look for these guides just as much as the next person.

Picture Perfect Wine Country... in Portugal

•••

I look out for them not only when I’m abroad, on a quest to unearth the tales of the world but also when I’m in an all-familiar setting, one I falsely think I know too well; home.
