Little did I know but we were about to visit one of the best restaurants we’ve dined at in the last 3 years. We’ve eaten at close to 1000 restaurants across 50+ countries in recent years and this one ranks in my favourite 5. So when I heap praise on this …

It’s not everyday you visit the capital of Finland. So when we had only 24 (and a bit) hours up our sleeves, we crammed in all the best sights of Helsinki in just 1 day. Plus one fabulous restaurant serving modern Finnish dishes you just have to try.

Switzerland! Where every vista is postcard perfection. And Davos was no different. For us Davos was the marriage of adventure and beauty. Top that off with the region’s friendly yet gentle temperament, divine weather in summer or winter, and it’s a real w…

Other than the Sound of Music’s “My Favourite Things” song to guide me, I didn’t know much about Austria’s food before arriving. Famous for their sweet tooth, it should be no surprise that more than half of these foods listed are delicious desserts and sw…

It had been many years since my last camping experience. Now we were giving camping another shot in the north of Luxembourg. Well, I guess "camping" isn't the right word - it was "glamping".

My mum was born in the Netherlands and so I grew up with a Dutch influence. Every Christmas my Oma (grandmother) made croquettes. And as I grew up we also enjoyed other delicacies that I decided to hunt down during our stay in the motherland (literally).
