My best Winter Moment: Walking to All Saints Waterfalls

With Spring knocking at the door here in Amsterdam, I can’t help but take a look back at my best Winter moment.

Eating Leckerbaer gourmet cookies in Copenhagen

What do you get when Michelin trained chefs reinvent the Danish butter cookie? Delicate and beautiful to look at cookies backed up with heaps of flavour! They taste as delicious as they look. Perhaps the word cookie isn’t the best description here. I think ‘small cake’ or ‘petite cake’ is more appropriate. Where can you […]

My Copenhagen photo diary

Visiting the Alternative Wolf and Bear Park in the Black Forest

I travelled to the Black Forest with my family just before Christmas. The number one thing I wanted to do was visit the Alternative Wolf and Bear Park. This isn’t your average animal park or zoo.

Taking a look back at my top travel moments of 2017

This past year has been life-changing for me in a lot of ways. For starters, I moved to a different continent! But more about that later. I think a great way to start the new year is to look back at the previous year and take a moment to appreciate all the opportunities that came […]
