Jan 10, 2015 Sri Lanka
I don’t very often talk about the business side of things on my blog, but I guess it’s pertinent that I shared with you the fact that I recently visited Sri Lanka as part of the world’s 50 top travel bloggers invited to the very first travel blogging conf…

We’ve celebrated Christmas in Australia, the South Pacific, New York and Bethlehem. What could possibly top any of those? Well I heard about one place. A very, very magical place. And like a dog gnawing on a juicy bone, I became fixated on a dreamy Christ…
Dec 22, 2014 Finland
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.

There is one lady in Crete determined to bring back the Cretan diet. And she is doing it from the very house she was born in. From the very oven her mother cooked in. And inspired by the very same love she remembers growing up with.

We almost discovered the magnificent display of poppies at The Tower of London by accident, but we were glad we did. 888,246 handmade ceramic flowers symbolised British individuals who had fallen in World War I. My 5-year-old daughter gazed over the sea o…

During our stay in Split we frequently glimpsed this iridescent island on the distant horizon and heard it’s beckon. Find out what happened during our 3-night stay and where we discovered Croatia’s best beach.
Oct 14, 2014 Switzerland
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…

Stuttgart was a surprise to us. As soon as we stepped off the train and into our first cab we were struck by how family friendly Stuttgart was. Find out everything you need to know before visiting Stuttgart.

Lenzerheide is a small village in between Chur and Davos in the eastern side of Switzerland. It may not be one of the well-known cities like Geneva or Zurich, but it certainly delivered the perfect family-friendly holiday experience.

With ancient castles, fortified walls and scenic forests, it’s easy to see why Luxembourg was on our bucket list. All you need to know about visiting Luxembourg.
Sep 12, 2014 Luxembourg
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".

Rotterdam is home to the most prestigious flagship of the Holland-America Line. She sailed the world from 1959 for nearly half a century before coming home in the year 2000 where she now enjoys her retirement as a 4 star hotel, conference centre and touri…

Rotterdam may be the lesser-known international metropolis in the Netherlands, next to the infamous Amsterdam, but cruise-goers should be fairly acquainted with this city since it holds the largest seaport in Europe. And it’s been aptly nicknamed the ‘Gat…

Along the canals of Amsterdam you can find some of Europe’s best and most expensive houseboats. There are only around 2,500 houseboat permits allowed in Amsterdam and we just had to stay on one...

Did you realise Budapest is actually two cities on the opposite banks of the Danube River? Buda on the west and Pest on the east. Budapest had been on my bucket list for a long, long time. I had seen such magnificent photos of the city, I knew I must vis…
Jul 26, 2014 Italy
We soon realised we had chosen this hotel wisely. Less than 2 minutes away, staring at us on the horizon, beckoning us with it’s ancient arches and calling to us with it’s ageless history, was the colossal Colosseum.

When you walk into Qbic London there is a note on the floor “Oh no, not you again!” And somehow the sarcasm, in a strange and quirky way, makes you feel right at home. But one particular decoration in this hotel will stick in my mind forever.
Jul 11, 2014 Poland
Come with us and visit Poland. But not the biggest tourist magnets like Krakow and Warsaw. We went looking for something a bit different.

It’s not very often you stay in a lavish hotel in the middle of a bustling, historic city that let’s you wash your clothes for free. And that’s why Mamaison Residence Izabella Budapest quickly became one of my favourite family-friendly hotels.
