A Weekend in the Cotswolds

A Weekend in the Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is a walkers paradise with over 3000 miles of public footpaths through some of the best scenic landscapes that England has to offer. The Cotswolds generally takes up an area from Worcester, south to Bath, across to Oxford and then north to Stratford-upon-Avon. Cotswolds comes from the name of an Anglo-Saxon chieftain named...
A day in Notting Hill

A day in Notting Hill

I think it’s about time I bring the posts a bit closer to home, literally. I live in an area of London, which is visited by thousands of tourists every Saturday and on top of that this part of London is a generous destination, when it comes to food and shopping. NOTTING HILL is best...

LA | San Francisco | NYC – coming soon….

We have just booked our next trip. It was hard coming back from Thailand without a new holiday to look forward to  – this has now been rectified ;) I can’t wait to be enjoying the LA vibe and big city buzz. The trip is not until May but I’m already starting the research and...
Koh Samui

Koh Samui

I have visited Koh Samui a couple of times, with a gap of 5 years between them. There is no doubt that this island has become one of the main tourist attractions of Thailand. The amount of new development, resorts, shops and restaurants that have emerged since I was there last (where I then also...

Rome Hotel – Relais Orso

If you’re planning a trip to Rome, then have a look at this little and stylish hotel Relais Orso. Situated on a narrow side street in the middle of the city, I think it looks very authentic and calm – somewhere you can relax before conquering the city sites. I was recommended this hotel and...
Longing for Thailand...

Longing for Thailand…

So I thought Spring was here but I feel cheated – now it’s cold and windy again. I therefore found myself longing for white sandy beaches and relaxing by the view and sounds of the ocean. I found this amazing resort and spa on the island Koh Samui in Thailand SILAVADEE POOL SPA & RESORT....

PIN DROP APP

PIN DROP APP

I was introduced to this app recently. It works as a great tool especially here in London, where you often end up in areas you haven’t been before or visit places for the first time and know you want to come back – not always easy in a city this big! The way the app...
Photo Update

I thought I’d share with you some more photos that I have taken over the last two months. The weather has finally changed and we’ve had some nice spring days here in London. I was also lucky to go to Italy a few weeks ago, for a long weekend. We stayed a couple of different...

Jamie Oliver Cooking Class

No doubt Jamie Oliver is well known and especially in Britain. I often watch his 30 minute meals on TV, where he effortlessly cooks up a great looking (and no doubt, great tasting) dishes. He makes it look so easy and not too fancy or complicated…. I love his rustic style and approach. Here in...
ALASKA - dreaming of adventure

ALASKA – dreaming of adventure

I’m working on a bit of research for our next BIG holiday. I love city breaks and short trips, staying at fabulous hotels and having a bit of a luxury experience. But at heart, if I had the time I would book a few longer trips a year, of the the more adventurous and nature...

Wiesergut – more ski inspiration

Just found this great design hotel WIESERGUT in Saalbach-Hinterglemm (well it looks amazing). I have fond memories of this place, as it was in this town I first practiced skiing when I was 7. We used to go to Hinterglemm every year for two weeks when I was a child – however that is many...
Dach & Sons

Dach & Sons

This weekend the weather was really good in London, so we decided to go for a walk around Hampstead Heath and Hampstead. But before our nature walk, we needed to top up our energy levels and agreed that a burger would properly do the trick. Now we were in luck, because one of the top...
The Crown Inn, Amersham

Perfectly Art Deco

Perfectly Art Deco

I’m in love with 1920-1940’s art deco design and the Viceroy Hotel in Miami embodies this style perfectly. Kelly Wearstler has created the interiors brilliantly with an over flow of detailed, pastel and a Miami-ish twist to it. The Philipe Starck designed Spa is an added experience. I have never been to Miami and haven’t...
