Worldwide Coffee From Café Frei

You’ll find travel right at the top of my list of favourite things, closely followed by dogs, coffee, and chocolate.

Why You Should Visit Anacapri

I’ve always had this romantic vision of Capri. Beautiful people. Beautiful food. And a beautiful island. Boy was I right. Yes, Capri naturally comes with one of Italy’s heftiest tourist tags, but that doesn’t mean you should avoid the island at all costs. First things first – avoid Capri and […]

Trinidad, The Heart Of Cuba

Picture cobblestone roads, pastel hue coloured low rise houses, donkeys dragging carts along the bumpy roads, vintage cars everywhere, old men playing chess in the street, and waking up in a traditional colonial home.

Cooking Up a Storm in Hoi An

Vietnamese food in my opinion is one of the tastiest types of Asian food, so it was a no brainer to partake in a cookery class during our time in Vietnam earlier this year. We travelled throughout the country and found that most places we visited offered cookery classes, however […]
