Last day in NYC today – I’ve had a killer (but fattening) time. Brooklyn is a lot bigger than I realised. When I organised to stay down south on 68th, I didn’t realise how far it was from Williamsburg, the hip place to be in […]

White girl gets a fork, best pancakes ever, a rice pudding cafe + an urban high-rise park.

White girl gets a fork, best pancakes ever, a rice pudding cafe + an urban high-rise park.

I stayed in my hotel room until midday. My feet hurt. I needed to sort out my luggage, get myself re-centered. And to be honest, I just needed a sleep in. New York is so ever-bustling and busy, it was nice to sit 13 floors […]

The invention of the Cronut.

The invention of the Cronut.

Today was the day I was to get up at 6AM and take the subway down to Dominique Ansel’s Bakery in SoHo, to line up for two hours for a taste of a Cronut from the place they were invented. If you haven’t heard of […]

Today was my first full day in Manhattan, to spend as I pleased. I had no plans, no-one to meet up with, no one to see. I could just do and go wherever I wanted. So I did. I set out, rugged up against the […]

Friends in New York + a secret underground bar.

Friends in New York + a secret underground bar.

Up early this morning, I head to the airport to make the long trip to the other side of the country. Off to New York today, and it’s been a long day of travelling. I finally made it in, through snowy Chicago, and the sun […]

Waffles, ice cream, soup, pizza, beer, chocolate + sourdough on Portland’s Epicurean Walking Tour.

My week in Portland is finishing up. I’ve had the best time. Here is the film of what we have done, eaten, seen and visited all week. For my last day in Portland, I was booked into the Portland Walking Tour: Epicurean Excursion. We were […]

Tasty n Sons is known city wide as perhaps Portland’s best brunch location, with a table for 6 on a saturday morning being a prized possession. We were meeting up with a few people, and so we head towards Tasty, put our name down and […]

What to do in Portland except brunch. I was heading into the city for my Forktown Foodie Tour this afternoon, and thought I’d try a downtown brunch location as I was over that way anyway. Skylar recommended Mothers, a Portland favourite.   I looked it […]

Vegan brunch, Gaiwan tea ceremony, hiking the wildwood trail + hot blueberry tea cocktails.

Vegan brunch, Gaiwan tea ceremony, hiking the wildwood trail + hot blueberry tea cocktails.

Walked down to Hawthorn and wandered the strip for a while – got lost in the huge Powell’s books, and then walked over the road to Harlow, Portlands premier vegan joint. Being a non-vegan, it is hard for vegan places to match what I could […]

A Swedish brunch, bee pollen ice cream, Portland’s Le Pigeon + a Tom Robbins bar.

Woke up bright and early today and got my work out of the way, just in time for Ali and Megan to pick Skylar and I up and head out to brunch. I wanted to try Broder Cafe, a small Swedish restaurant that specialises in […]

Hello Portland, with your maple bacon doughnuts + Coconut Key Lime Pie cocktails.

Hello Portland, with your maple bacon doughnuts + Coconut Key Lime Pie cocktails.

It’s been a long, incredible day. I was sad to leave Phoenix and all my friends and family behind – second big goodbye I have done in as many months. But now my solo journey really starts. I left home at 7AM this morning: first […]

The Arizona Renaissance Festival, turkey legs + raspberry mead.

The Arizona Renaissance Festival, turkey legs + raspberry mead.

For a few years now, David has been talking about the Arizona Renaissance Festival (but mainly about the turkey legs you can buy there). From what I understood, it was like a medieval convention out in the desert where people dressed up in period costume, […]
