You guys know me. One look at this blog and three things immediately come to mind: I love food. I love walking (thank heavens, otherwise I would easily weight 972 pounds by now). And I love London (duh – as evidenced by the abundance of London posts on this wee blog). Combine these three things […]

Fact: 100% of tourists visiting London will eventually set foot in affluent Kensington. Indeed, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chealsea is always high up on every one’s London bucket list, for the simple reason that it is home to an impressive amount of London’s most famous attractions: Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Notting Hill, incredibly photogenic […]

72 hours in Glasgow

Posted on 15. Oct, 2014 by .

Glasgow was always an elusive one to me. I have been all over Scotland in the past couple of years over half a dozen of trips, , from the Isle of Skye to Edinburgh — and yet, I had never managed to make it west to Glasgow. Was I not destined to go, I wondered? It wasn’t for […]

48 hours in Reykjavik

Posted on 17. Sep, 2014 by .

Reykjavik has become quite the poster city for all things Scandinavian in the past couple of years; fresh air, accessible nature, colorful cottages and plenty of coffee shops filled with cozy candles. Indeed, gone are the days where visitors simply drove through Reykjavik on their way to the West Fjords or simply to get a […]

Do’s and Dont’s of an Iceland Road Trip

Posted on 18. Aug, 2014 by .

Let’s just start by stating the obvious: Iceland is amazing. Like, I-almost-didn’t-blink-for-a-week kind of amazing. But the rugged, raw beauty of the country is not something to simply marvel at; it is also something to take into consideration when planning a trip, for Iceland is a land of extreme conditions (you will notice that I […]

My Carry-On Packing Essentials

Posted on 14. Aug, 2014 by .

Lately, I realized that whenever I start packing for a trip, I shift into robot mode. I always take the same bag, the same stuff, without exception. The truth is, no matter where in the world I am traveling to, my carry-on packing routine is always the same, because I’ve done it so many times before. […]

My Favourite Europe Travel Apps

Anytime someone asks me “What’s the one thing you wouldn’t travel without?”, my answer inevitably is “My iPhone” — what I commonly refer to as my other half (and yes, I am married to an actual human being). Saying that I am obsessed with my phone isn’t an understatement, and I am seriously considering a […]

The Street Art of East London

Posted on 07. Jul, 2014 by .

13

Street art is a bit like guacamole, or disco music: you either love it, or you hate it. I don’t know anyone who just feels moderately about street art. It seems that there are people who feel street art is nothing more than an elaborate form of graffiti, and there are others who view it […]

The City of Lights has been the object of many, many dreams and reveries over the last century, and even though there are many other vibrant cities in the world to visit, few can boast having Paris’ glamour and joie de vivre. But a city that offers so many different options, and that’s been written […]

Even though the British capital gets a bad reputation in terms of weather – permanent grey cloud, anyone? – it doesn’t mean it’s all bad. Few things are more enjoyable than a sunny day in London! But since these are so few and far between, there are, luckily, other ways to get your daily dose […]

Afternoon Tea With a View at Shangri-La London

As most of you guys know already I think of myself as a bit of a Britophile; few things make me more happy than the prospect of a UK getaway, whether I fly to Glasgow, the Isle of Skye, the Cotswolds or my beloved London. Part of being a Britophile include a profound appreciation of pub […]

36 Hours in Gothenburg

Posted on 28. Apr, 2014 by .

“Man, this is going to be amazing.” These were the first words I uttered when I finalized my grand Scandinavian train trip with Eurail, which had me spend considerable time in Sweden, the country I had been dreaming of visiting for years. With hindsight, I can honestly say that Gothenburg was, I think, the perfect introduction […]
