La Petite France, Strasbourg

Strasbourg has been on my bucket list for a couple of years now, ever since I learned about their ever so popular Christmas markets!

Christmas in Strasbourg, Capitale de Noel

Growing up in Australia, Christmas has always been about shorts, t-shirts and firing a barbie in the backyard.

A Sense of Calmness in the Hustles of London

When I think of London parklands, the first few that springs to mind are Hyde Park, Regent’s Park and St James’ Park. All are on top of tourists’ hit list! On a sunny day, these parks are full of picnic goers, tourists, kids, pets – basically a really busy place. So it would be pretty […]

Too late for lunch but too early for dinner

When I think of brunch, the first place that springs to mind is the Caravan in King’s Cross! Ever since our friends took us there 4 years ago, we fell in love this place… their industrial chic decor with pumping music and excellent coffee makes it a really cool place to wind down on the weekends!
