Foodie Date Ideas in Cape Town

Foodie Date Ideas in Cape Town

The way to a man’s heart is… well I honestly don’t know. From what I’ve heard it’s through his stomach but I’ve found that route to be a bit hit-and-miss. The way to woman’s heart on the other hand, now that I can vouch for. And I’ll give it to you straight: It’s either diamonds […]

It’s Personal – Waking Up In The Middle Of The Night

I woke up at 3am with the familiar racing heart and ice cold knot in my belly. I’d been dreaming that someone had broken into my car again (this would have been the fifth time in four years) and I had caught them in the act and now they were after me. I didn’t fall […]

Iconic Santorini

I’m In Namibia!

Doing Travel Differently: Off on an adventure with Open Africa

Doing Travel Differently: Off on an adventure with Open Africa

Freshly back from Greece -well, I haven’t showered yet after 24 hours of travelling, so maybe “fresh” isn’t the most accurate description- I am home for a few hours to unpack and answer some emails before setting off on one seriously epic adventure with Open Africa. An empty suitcase. An open mind. A willing partner […]

Eating Athens: Where to eat in Athens

Eating Athens: Where to eat in Athens

It’s my last couple of hours in Athens and as I wait for my flight, enjoying my final Cappucino Freddo, I’m flicking through the pictures of the delicious things I’ve eaten over the past couple of weeks. Before I came to Athens, I got a lot of “a couple of days will be enough” and […]
