Top 11 Things To Do In Singapore

Although I was only in Singapore for a long weekend, having a local show us the ropes meant that we did and saw all the very best in the short amount of time that we had...

How to Spend a Day in Hong Kong P.2: Lantau Island

Lantau Island is the largest island in Hong Kong, almost twice the size of Hong Kong Island, which is pretty mental considering how crowded HK Island is and how uninhabited Lantau is in comparison. Lantau is often referred to as "the lungs of Hong Kong"...

How to Spend a Day in Hong Kong P.1: Lamma Island

I absolutely LOVED having mum visit me in Hong Kong, firstly because it was so great to spend time with her, but secondly because it made me see a whole new side of my wonderful home. Despite the fact that she was only here for six short days we...

Travel Link-Up: My 3-Month Travel Itinerary

I am so excited for 2017 for a whole host of reasons, but particularly because it will be a year filled with travel for me. As I explained in my latest “5 Things I Want to Focus on in 2017” post, my job is allowing me to take 3 months’ annual leave come March and you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be...

Travel Link-Up: 10 Things I Love About Christmas

IT’S CHRISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSTMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! It’s the mooost wonderful tiiiime of the yeeear. I love Christmas, or, to be more accurate, the whole month of December. I honestly think it’s such a magical time and thoroughly enjoy getting carried away with every aspect of it...

Lisbon: Sintra, A Real Life Lego Kingdom and Over-Indulgence at Olivier Avenida

Abi & I couldn’t have asked for a more magical final day. The sun was shining, we visited a Lego Kingdom and ate like Queens. Sintra is a hilltop village about a 30 minute drive out of Lisbon, and well worth the day trip, even if...

Lisbon: Yakuza {Where the Japanese Met Their Match}

Proudly wearing our hard-earned tourist medals post-full day of sightseeing, Abi & I headed to dinner at Yakuza. A fancy Japanese restaurant a little way out of town, we weren’t sure what to expect. However, the sterling Tripadvisor reviews helped put us at ease. And rightly so, because everything about our meal was...

Lisbon: The Alfama Quarter, Historical Sights and Epic Time Out Food Market

Abi & I decided to make the most of the morning’s gloomy weather by cruising around some of Lisbon’s renowned historical sights, in the hope that our cultural efforts would be rewarded with sunshine in the afternoon. We headed to Belem just outside of the city centre where numerous of Lisbon’s most popular attractions...

Travel Link-Up: Home Is Where the Heart Is

So the theme for this month’s travel link-up is home – Have you ever visited a country or place and been so drawn to it that you’ve wanted to move there? Or if you’re an expat, when did the country you live in begin to feel like home? What makes home, home? Is it the people, sights, food?

Lisbon: A Hawaiian Beach Bar, UNMISSABLE Portuguese Restaurant & Flower Gelatos

SO, the moment you’ve all been waiting for has arrived. Time to unveil the most amazing, authentic Portuguese tapas restaurant in all of Lisbon! Taberna da Rua das Flores.

Lisbon: Castles, Cathedrals, Corpus Christi… Views & Wine

Despite the sad weather forecast Abi & I awoke to the most GLORIOUS sunshine and obviously headed straight to our hotel pool to catch some rays whilst our good fortune lasted.

Lisbon: Sunny Squares and Tasty Cows

Abi & I took advantage of the late May bank holiday weekend and squeezed in a fly-by trip to Lisbon to drink, eat and sight-see ourselves silly. Sunning ourselves brown had been high on the agenda too, but unfortunately the weather man had different ideas in mind and so a light ‘blush’ is all we had to show for our time in the southern European city.

Copenhagen: KöD, Where Danes Proved They Can do Cow as Well as Pig

For my final night in the motherland and in the company of three growing men, I could think of no better place for dinner than KöD (which translates as “meat”).

Copenhagen: An Immense Farmer’s Market & My Favourite Lunch Spot

We woke up to glorious sunshine, and decided to nurse our aching heads with a trip to Torvehallerne, which describes itself “not as a supermarket, but as a super market”, which is entirely accurate.

Copenhagen: My Top Picks from my Home City

Post-brunch (that was really lunch but I wish was brunch) at the epic Mad & Kaffe, Sarah, Caroline, Thomas and I decided to make the most of the gorgeous day and stroll around our favourite parts of the city.

Copenhagen: Insta-Sensations Brunchin’ at Mad & Kaffe

A couple of weeks ago I flew back to the motherland for a long weekend to visit some of my favourite Danes, namely those that I went to summer school with. Since the standard reaction when I tell someone that I went to “summer school” is generally pity and an assumption that my parents wanted to punish me, let me start by assuring you that you needn’t feel sorry for me.

Travel Link-Up: Scent-Sational Scents

I find smell to be the most fascinating of our senses, with people seemingly able to have completely different sensitivities and reactions to the same scents. Scent is also such a powerful and evocative memory trigger; I find a certain smell can transport you to a different time and place entirely. It’s hard for me to recall certain holidays and trips now without both visualising and smelling the place in mind.

Travel Link-Up: My Greatest Adventure

I am honoured to co-host this month’s travel link-up with the fabulous topic of ‘your greatest adventure’. Since I have already talked about my incredible experience travelling Central America, the U.S. and Asia last year, which was without a doubt one of the greatest & best adventures of my life, I thought I’d instead tell you about a not-so-distant-future adventure that I’m super excited about. I’m moving to Hong Kong.

Travel Link-Up: Love is in the Air for Denmark

So February has arrived and it’s officially that time of the year; the shops are overflowing with red roses, oversized cards, heart-shaped everything, chocolate selection boxes and those super soft grey teddy bears bearing wonderfully cringeworthy slogans. It’s the month of lurrrve. With that in mind, this month’s travel link-up topic is about what you adore, so I thought I’d write a post on Denmark.
