MoMa for Modern Art Lovers

If you love modern art, you need to visit the museum that has the world’s best collection of modern and contemporary art. Opened in 1929, their ever-growing collection has almost 200 000 pieces of work. Housed in a beautiful, tranquil space in mid-town Manhattan, I recommend spending a few hours admiring the incredible collection, then […]

The History Of Bullfighting

I have to say up front that bullfighting is not my thing. Call me squeamish, but watching a bull being tormented and killed for no reason, no matter how impressive the battle, doesn’t interest me one bit. It’s cruel and senseless.Having said that I do like history. And the history and culture of matadors, their […]

Seville – A VERY Passionate City

Friends in London convinced me I had to go to Seville. I’m very pleased I did. Sitting on the Guadalquivir River, Seville feels like an authentic Spanish city of old. It’s the heart of Andalusian culture, and the home of Flamenco, bullfighting, and arguably the region’s best tapas bars. Which surely makes it one of […]

New York, New York, New Yoooooooooork.

The strangest thing about visiting New York for the first is how familiar it feels. Which seems strange until you realise it’s because every taxi, every policeman, every neighbourhood is something you’ve seen in a million movies and they look exactly the same in real life. It’s a city that never sleeps and there are […]

Sri Lanka’s Perfect Private Villa Hideaway

We spent the first couple of nights of our holiday at The Fortress, a must-stay luxury hotel outside Galle, so we got our ocean fix before heading up to Bentota to Cocoon Resorts & Villas, only a five minute drive inland from the beach. I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive at the […]

Fashion Forward Meets The Mukhi Sisters

I met two of the three lovely Mukhi sisters at a mutual friend’s wedding in Italy. There was an immediate connection because of their warm personalities, laid back outlook, and general fun loving spirit. When I was introduced to their brand – it was a perfect reflection of them. It is bold jewellery that exudes confidence […]

A Trek Around The Temples Of Angkor

The Temples Angkor was the capital of the Khmer Empire that reigned supreme from around the 9th – 15th centuries. It’s complex of temples is a World Heritage Site and a place you have to visit. There are over 1000 temples in various stages of disrepair, with restoration having been made a priority in the […]

The Oktoberfest

Day One I arrived at the Munich train station excited, but weary about the Oktoberfest. The station was packed with people dressed in traditional clothes and eager to party, and it was already very festive early in the morning. So I got into the spirit fast and I have to say, after two full-on days […]

London’s Borough Market

The Borough Market is London’s Oldest Fruit & Veg Market, and it’s also the best. On the banks of the Thames, I headed there after a couple of hours walking around the Tate Modern. It was only five minutes along the river and down and into foodie heaven. The Borough history goes all the way […]
