Tuscan wonder: Florence

Consistently ranked amongst the top 5 cities in Europe, Florence has a unique charm. It is a perfect reflection of Italian culture; the food, the wine, the art and architecture. It’s romantic, alluring, and pulls you back into an ethereal era, with loads to discover amidst its cobbled streets. Walk down (or up) Ponte Vecchio. This…

Caput Mundi: Rome

When in Rome… don’t blink for a second or you may miss something! The entire city is a priceless treasure; a living and breathing tribute to history. I couldn’t stop gasping as I walked around the city, each fragment of it a work of art built by the great grand masters. The art, culture, icons, people… they’re…

European Christmas: Paris, Brussels and Copenhagen

I love Christmas! It is my favourite time of the year, and I start counting down to Christmas around September every year! Christmas trees, lights, food, champagne, Santa, carols, movies, shopping, and the festive cheer around every corner makes me warm and fuzzy. London is AMAZING during Christmas time, but I always wanted to experience…
