Kurumba – A Quick Maldives Getaway

Kurumba is the first resort that started the rush to the Maldives, and it is still welcoming guests decades later.

Most […]

Buzios Is A Beach Lover’s Paradise

After a pleasant enough 3 hour bus ride from Rio’s Galeâo International Airport, we found ourselves in Buzios. A playground of Rio’s jet set, the peninsula is a beach lover’s dream with 23 different beaches offering higher than average sunshine all year round. A strange quirk of the place is that many Spanish-speaking people live […]

Rambling down Las Ramblas

Barcelona is rightly famous for Gaudi’s amazing architecture, and you absolutely must see his incredible architectural feats, but if it’s the beating heart of Barcelona you want, the 1.2 kilometer long tree-lined pedestrian mall, known as Las Ramblas and its surrounding districts is where you need to spend time. This iconic street (actually a series […]

Munich Is One Of The World’s Most Liveable Cities

There’s far more to Munich than the Oktoberfest. It is often featured on lists of the world’s most liveable cities, and it’s not hard to see why. Unlike Berlin, this city has money and it shows. It was carefully rebuilt after the war and the architecture is beautiful. It is a great city to walk […]

A Single Woman’s Stay At Waldorf Astoria (RAK)

(A Guest Post by Mona Gulaid) I never thought I’d ever have the guts to book a stay at a romantic luxury hotel resort all by myself on a last minute whim. Ok, it wasn’t really that spontaneous but it was something I have been wanting to do for a long time and I even […]

SOHO House Berlin

If you’re looking for a stylish place to eat and sleep in Berlin, you could do worse than Soho House, a private, members only club in Mitte that also rents rooms and apartments to the public. It’s in a grand old corner building with a stunning roof top bar and the coziest restaurant and lounge […]
