SoCal: LA sights in one day

January 25, 2018


LA isn’t like other cities where people come to ‘sightsee’. Apart from Hollywood. Everyone wants to see Hollywood. So if you come to LA, here is your one-day sightseeing tour. Start at Rodeo Drive and do the Pretty Woman thing, popping into the Beverly Wilshire. For sustenance after shopping: if you’re in a hurry and […]

LA Restaurant Intel

October 20, 2017


I often write about my favourite places but as LA has such a wealth of food culture I find myself trying to go to different restaurants as much as I can.

Tasting Tokyo

October 3, 2016


I’m just back from a two week extravaganza in Japan and have so much to share.

Gastonomic adventure in Tel Aviv and Jaffa

August 27, 2012


Tel Aviv is a complete contrast to Jerusalem. The weight of the conflict, and the difference in religious cultures seems to disappear somewhere on the 45minute drive between the two. It’s a city on a long stretch of sandy beach, with some great restaurants.  What’s not to love? It would be so easy to go […]

My Texan adventure: Dallas

December 9, 2011


When I told my friend in Dallas that I was going to come and visit he wondered what a British girl would do in Texas. A few others thought I was mad but I have just had the time of my life with simply amazing new experiences every day. One thing that I imagine every […]
