London has so much to offer, you can party at night, browse markets in the day and everything in between. It wasn't until February last year when my boyfriend fulfilled a childhood dream of mine by taking me to New York that I realised how utterly in love I was with this city.
Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific was the first international airline to launch a hard shell Economy seat for its long-haul fleet of aircraft in 2007. The fi...
Obviously, being surrounded by water and accessible via boat and water taxis, Venice never struck me as being particularly wheelchair accessible and so David and I would never have planned a quick 'city break' to fly there for just two days.
American potato chips ("crisps") are pathetic when compared with the flavours England has. Sea salt and cider vinegar, shrimp ("prawn") cocktail, sweet chili, steak and onion, smoky bacon, roast chicken. These are not speciality flavours but standard chips you can find almost anywhere. Also, chocolate is richer and tastier in this country. Sorry Hershey's, it's true.
I travelled with Spirit of Soccer's founder, Scott Lee, and his five talented coaches to Poipet, located on the Thai-Cambodian border. As we rumbled up the narrow road, flying past huts squatting on stilts above stagnant swamps, and old ladies selling rice stuffed into roasted bamboo straws, he tells me that this region sits in the middle of the 'T5 mine belt'.
With space finite and demand for it high, the city's towers are not only for banks and flats, but often host a hotchpotch of tailors, jewellers and iron mongers living harmoniously side by side. As the number of red lanterns decorating the city increased in anticipation of Chinese New Year, the possibilities for urban exploration seemed endless.
Hidden in a secret oasis behind the ancient city walls - amongst palms, citrus, olive and pomegranate trees -the tranquility of The Royal Mansour feels a million miles away from the vociferous bustle of nearby Djemaa el Fna square.
What do you get when you put Ralph Fiennes, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman together in a picturesque mountainside hotel, amongst a large ensemble cast of even more famous faces? The answer isn't just big screen magic, it's itchy feet.
There are many things you should do in life, but drinking these 25 cocktails should definitely be high up that bucket list.
Center Parcs was very geared up, prepared and open for disabled people. My experience and activities didn't even touch the full list of sports, shopping and swimming fun to be had. Therefore if you plan on visiting please research your wish list and do get in touch with them on any specific questions.
The further you travel the more chance you have of catching some sun, but then again you're sacrificing valuable holiday time and is it really worth it? There are much better things you could be doing with your time than sitting on a plane. So without further ado, here are three short-haul destinations.
Sean's spots are healing, Emma making friends; Lynda is working in London today. The house is "coming together" (as in, it's no longer falling apart). The roof of the summerhouse is secured with tarp and screws. There's nothing useful I can do alone. Nothing for it: I must write.
Weimar in the heart of Germany is renowned for its cultural heritage, palaces and parks. Many writers are drawn here due to its association with Goethe and Schiller, whose houses have been converted into museums,
Belo Horizonte was one of the first planned capital cities of Brazil. Surrounded by mountains, it has nearly 2.5 million inhabitants and is famous nationwide, for its more than 14 thousand bars, called "botecos" (pubs) in Brazil.
We all know that a Regent's Canal is a great place to hang out, but have you checked out the numerous floating businesses along the towpath? Word On The Water is a friendly barge selling secondhand books to passers by...
I've always had a huge love for vintage designer items and especially in Chanel vintage bags and accessories. I've decided to break it down for you- the best shops I have found in the places I've travelled to buy Designer Vintage items are:
