15 fun things to do in Bangkok

•••
I'm pretty sure that every blogpost I ever wrote about Thailand and Bangkok in particular was essentially just one big love fest. It's true that the most popular of destinations in Asia is simply always guaranteed to provide a good time, pretty much regardless of weather, company or budget. It's a bit like a Disneyland for adults with fun people, amazing foo[...]

A Rain Room Has Arrived In Melbourne

•••
Known to many as the culture capital of Australia, Melbourne is a hub for all things arty and experiential. This August sees the premier of a monumental creative installation, never before seen in the City. Having drawn over half a million visitors across LA, New York, Shanghai and London, the globally significant work has now arrived to the Jackalope Pav[...]

A weekend in Boston

•••
Boston is a city of firsts – it’s home to the first public library, the first institution of higher education, the first subway system and the first marathon was run in Boston. It was also in Boston that Alexander Bell invented the first ever telephone. Because of this, the city is steeped in history and has a rich heritage which surpasses that of many o[...]

Bucharest: the Eastern European City for Creatives and Music Lovers

•••
Bucharest is a place of fascinating contrasts. Medieval churches and monasteries stand beside Art Nouveau phenomena. Monstrous 1930s’ concrete towers overshadow delicate French Baroque, and 21st century modernity sits somewhere awkwardly between it all. For me, the streets of Bucharest are like a feast for the eyes and a rather perplexing stimulus for the [...]

Toulouse: 72 hours in the pink city

•••
When choosing a city destination in France, it can sometimes be hard to see beyond the dazzling lights and bustling boulevards of gay Paris. The city of lovers, or so they say; although now perhaps just a tad oversaturated in the tourism department. For an alternative city experience, I cast aside convention and headed to the subdued southern city of Toulous[...]

Falling in Love with Contemporary Saint Petersburg

•••
Saint Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe; just a few hours by plane from many European cities, but underrated and still unknown to many. Russia’s beautiful northern city is home to magnificent palaces, golden rooftops, and an impressive history, but above all, a lively scene of young and thriving creative people. I loved St. Peters[...]

Luxembourg: The Loveliest Little European Country

•••
After living amongst the chaos of London for the last four years, I have increasingly sought out relaxing, calm and quiet holiday destinations to counteract my hectic lifestyle. One day on my morning commute, I read an article about Luxembourg which described the little country as a peaceful haven situated right in the middle of Europe with a population of j[...]

The Travelettes guide to Jordaan, Amsterdam

•••
Oh Amsterdam, how’d you get so beautiful? I ask myself this every morning. I’ve not always lived inner city, but oh boy, have I ended up in a good one. Just the other day I was walking down the canal side and overheard a man on his phone describing Amsterdam as ‘a mix of Venice and San Francisco’. Now, I’ve been to a lot of cities, but I[...]

DONA - Lisbon's most beautiful boutique hotel

•••
When traveling, you sometimes find great places and other times, they find you. That's what happened late last year when a small, newly open apartment hotel in Lisbon's district of Graca got in touch to invite me to stay with them if I'd ever be in the neighbourhood. By some wonderful coincidence I was in fact going to be in Lisbon just 2 weeks later and was[...]
