How to find the most authentic food abroad: Eat Local

Eat Local

Before I started travelling extensively, I would devour travel magazines and books to get inspiration. A common favourite tale in these publications would be when the author got invited by a local to go and eat with them in their home. I would always be slightly dubious and would think to myself that these invites don’t really […]

Memories of early travels : St Petersburg Vlog

St Petersburg Vlog

Our second stop in Russia was the fantastic city of St Petersburg. Between Moscow and St Petersburg we prefered the latter. It has more of an edge to it and felt more rebellious. It is also very beautiful. We loved walking along the bridges over the gulf of Finland and watching the ships and boats […]

Bucharest In One Day


We love slow travel. There is no better way to discover a place and it’s people than by spending an extended amount of time in one place. However, for most of us that is not practical, what with work commitments, family time and following your local football team, time becomes a precious commodity. That’s why […]

The Friday Photo Project | Sibiu


Last month we visited the wonderful town of Sibiu in Romania. It was kind of a homecoming for me as Transylvania was the area that gave me my travel bug way back in 1989 when I visited with my school. I was only 13 at the time and still had a lot to learn about […]
