Tokyo has so many beautiful gardens and parks dotted throughout its urban landscape.In some parks you can forget what lies outside its borders due to the sheer size of it, how tall the trees are, or even how much the foliage blocks out of sight. However, Hamarikyu feels like more of an oasis due to the towering structures that visibly surround it. Continue reading
Budapest Wine Festival was the absolute best surprise on our trip to Budapest in September and an event I definitely recommend booking your trip around.
It’s a huge wine festival taking place in the castle grounds overlooking the river and the city beyond. Just an amazing experience. Continue reading
We have just got back from the most fabulous trip to Hungary and Slovenia and I can’t wait to start sharing the highlights!
One of my favourite evenings in Budapest was the one we spent in one of the ruin bars in the old Jewish district on the Pest side of the river. Continue reading
In the center of Toronto, you’ll find a long collection of joined alleyways that are completely filled with colourful graffiti, artwork and murals.
These little back streets are a hub for street art and you can find some amazing pieces while walking along the route. Continue reading
Cocktails are welcome whatever the weather.
Cambridge is jam packed full of interesting museums.

The view from the old walls of Lucerne is amazing.
You can see across the whole city and part of the lake and I think it’s a must do when visiting the city. Continue reading

Amsterdam is probably one of my favourite cities in the world. I love the way of life there, full of food, canals and bikes. There’s a ton of apple pie, pancakes, croquettes and dutch genever. It’s wonderful.
We’ve visited a couple of times recently and because of all the great places we found I wanted to collate some that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. So, there’ll be a mix of food spots, museums, galleries, stores and public spaces that we would absolutely recommend to everyone. I say a mix, but honestly, it’s mainly food. I can’t help myself.
I’ve only ever visited during spring/summer, but I think Amsterdam would be a great place to take a city break over the Christmas period. However, it’s not a ‘one-season-only’ city, so whenever you visit will be just as lively and charismatic.
