How to celebrate your anniversary – in Iceland!

Last year, we celebrated our 10th year of being together, in Iceland and it really was a magical trip! From volcanoes that throw surprise parties now and then, complete with fireworks and ashy plumes to gigantic glaciers grinding downhill, threatening to melt and make one large swimming pool out of Iceland, to geysers that shower […]

Kandooma Maldives – Now, let’s dream!

I sat down to write about the Maldives and decided that I wasn’t going to write another Maldives Tourism Board-worthy piece, extolling the virtues of this archipelagic nation made up of over 1000 sun-kissed islands. There are enough sites out there telling you about the amazing underwater marine life, the pure white sandy beaches, the […]

My 3 Favourite Phuket Resorts

Because I prefer Thai over Indonesian cuisine, my preferred beach getaways tend to be of the Thai variety. Hua Hin, Krabi, Koh Samui – these are all increasingly popular, but I still love Phuket. Depending on where you stay, you will be rewarded with the softest, powder white sand beach you will ever see. And […]

7 Places for a wandering mind to escape to

For no reason other than it’s a Sunday and my wandering mind decided to head off on yet another morose trip, I decided to stop it in its tracks before it went too far over the edge. And write about trips a wandering mind could consider taking for further inspiration instead. In no particular order, […]

Gullfoss, Iceland

Day tripping to Iceland’s Golden Circle

(The Golden Circle is a marketing-friendly term encapsulating the three sights of Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir) Easily covered […]

8 reasons why Iceland should win Euro 2016

Iceland is one quirky place. Whether it’s bearded descendants of the Vikings trawling the pubs of Reykjavik, or bearded trolls menacingly guarding the lava plains of the South Coast, this is one kooky Island. Anyone who has been to Iceland will understand what it feels like to be bitten by the Icelandic Brrrbug. Suddenly, you […]

Top 8 Things To Do in Florence

Hubby asked me which was my favourite city in Europe. I said, “It depends”. For a city vibe like none other, I love Barcelona with its Gaudi-esque whimsical architecture and nightly tapas crawls. To escape into a daydream, there is no place like Santorini with its dramatic cliffs and turquoise seas. And anyone who has visited Cappadoccia in Turkey […]

Mykonos View

My Best Greek Island Experiences

There really is nothing quite like the Greek Islands. That endless, shimmering turquoise sheet of water, surrounded by volcanic land upon which whitewashed houses glisten in the sun. I spent some time in Mykonos, Santorini and Ios and this was way before I had decided to start capturing picture-perfect memories for a blog. And still, […]

Abisko Area

My Abisko adventures in Swedish Lapland (Part 2)

On to my favourite topic, food. Well, seeing as how we were up in the arctic wilderness, having close shaves with roaming moose and reindeer, I mean, it only made sense to…you know. What do I know, you ask? Well…eat, I say. Eat moose and reindeer that is. And the lodge we stayed in, Abisko […]
