“Tasting Lisboa” to Learn About Lisbon’s Culture and Identity

The first thing that struck me about Lisbon was the melting pot of cultures that were going about their daily business in the perfectly aligned streets and monumental squares of the Baixa neighbourhood.  Whether it was the men from the west coast of Africa, who were proudly donning their traditional, bright coloured dress, perhaps without a place to call home […]

All the Asian Food I Ate So Far in Sydney

When I started writing my last post about Asian food, All the Asian Food I Ate So Far in Adelaide, it was originally titled All the Asian Food I Ate So Far in Australia. It was supposed to be an epic overview of everywhere I had been across the country across two cities, but when I […]

Sunday Brunch: Sotto on West

This wasn’t the first time that I’d been to Sotto on West. Since discovering it a couple of months back, I’ve visited several times. It’s conveniently located just five minutes walk from my family’s apartment in Crows Nest, where I am staying while in Sydney, and they have free WiFi to boot. Boom. They also have […]

All the Asian Food I Ate So Far in Adelaide

One of the things I miss most while being in Spain is Asian food, and it’s one of the things I most look forward to when I return to visit Australia. I know what you are thinking. Why Australia? Asian food is better in Asia! Of course, it is. Vietnamese food is best eaten in Vietnam, Thai food […]

Don’t Booze and Luge

I have to admit, the first thing that drew me to the Skyline in Rotorua was not the fact that my grandmother was paying for me to visit. Nor was it the attractions at the top. It was the Volcanic Hills Winery. I’d heard they had a tasting room at the top of the cable car, […]

Uncovering New Zealand’s Foodie Side

At the end of December I spent a whirlwind couple of days in Auckland. I didn’t plan on doing anything in particular. I definitely didn’t imagine myself joining a food tour around the city. I thought I would just re-acquaint myself with a city that I was once familiar with, thanks to frequent childhood jaunts across […]

Where to – Physically and Metaphorically – in 2015

The best part of January has been spent on a much needed technology detox. It wasn’t exactly self imposed, it was more situational. The detox started in Sydney when I piled in the car with my friend Clive and reached a friend’s property outside of Taree in NSW. Hello rolling hills on an 100 acre property, […]

Everywhere I Ate Brunch in New Zealand

I could title this post something way more eye catching. “The Best Brunches in New Zealand” is something that springs to mind. Or “New Zealand’s Top Three Brunches” would do the job nicely. But the problem is, it would just be a lie. I love brunch, and if I had my way I would eat […]

Dining at 85 Kilometres Per Hour

Throughout my history as an independent traveller I have always loved train travel. As if you couldn’t tell – I spend my life taking groups of tourists around Europe travelling entirely by public transport. Completely mad or the somewhat romantic notion of a vagabond traveller? I’ll let you decide. Aside from incorporating train travel as a […]

2014 in Review: My Favourite New Restaurant Discoveries

It’s that time of year where we are supposed to feeling inspired, re-energised and ready to take on the world. It’s also that time of year where we reflect on what we have done in the past year, and what we could do better next time round. Although it almost seems like it is expected […]
