On a vacation to Vancouver Island we stopped for a whirlwind visit to Vancouver. Here’s what we did/learnt in our 36 hours there. Be sure to stop at Meat & Bread for a sandwich – any of their sandwiches. We went to one at 1033 W Pender and then strolled down to Coal Harbour for a picnic […]

I was lucky enough to have a couple of days in Athens between media conferences so I managed to do a little exploring. And when I say exploring, I mostly mean eating.

I’ve been hearing about Mexico City as a destination for a while but didn’t take it seriously. Until now. After a quick break of 3 nights I have totally fallen for it in a ‘wow I could move here’ kind of way.  Before I start gushing, here are things you need to do ahead of […]

When I tell people in California that I went to the Channel Islands they either ask "Where?" or say "oh, I keep meaning to go but have never been". Well people, you are missing out, the Channel Islands are stunning.

With only a few days of vacation and plans to visit some friends in Waikiki we stayed on Oahu. In need over a few days R&R we headed straight to the North Shore. The first thing that struck me on the drive was just how lush and green Hawaii is, particularly contrasted with the dry […]

Palm Springs is all about the hotels so make sure you choose wisely. Don’t go with the big chain hotels, pick a luxury boutique hotel or find a fantastic AirBnB. We’ve found this out through trip and error. The first time we stayed in Palm Springs we stayed at Casa Monte Vista which is one […]

We get our fair share of visitors from Europe, which we just love, and I’m starting to get my ‘tourist days’ sorted. Here’s our favourite Welcome to LA/Westside/Beach day out: To explore the Westside I encourage friends to rent bikes. It’s my favourite mode of transportation (and not just because I’m married to a Dutchman!). […]
