Scandinavia’s Christmas City & Rudolph for Lunch.

Scandinavia’s Christmas City & Rudolph for Lunch.

We decided a few months ago that we would try and take a weekend trip once a month while we are here in London, to take advantage of the proximity of so many amazing countries. However, this thoroughly unaffordable goal could only be accomplished if […]

Squid ink baguettes, Jim Morrison’s grave + a dinner picnic under the Eiffel Tower.

We woke up this morning and head straight out to sit in a cute Parisian cafe for breakfast. Coffee, chocolate croissants and baguettes with French butter fueled us for the walk down to Montmartre cemetery, where we were on the hunt for a number of […]

A Scone Adventure in Marylebone + barista training at Climpson & Sons.

A Scone Adventure in Marylebone + barista training at Climpson & Sons.

The past few months in London have been lovely, because it has been like a revolving door of friends from Melbourne popping in and out. It’s been ridiculous actually – a lot of my spare time has been spent with friends from back home, whether […]

Stroopwafels, poffertjes + naps on the canal.

Last day in Amsterdam. I head out on the bike down to over 100 year old street market, the Albert Cuyp Market, to shoot a Market Focus photoessay for Taste & Travel. While I was there I loaded up on Dutch snacks like freshly made […]

De Bakkerswinkel, a Starbucks Reserve Tasting class + Dutch Stamppot dinner.

Husni and Hadiah were leaving today, so I had another few days here in Amsterdam to plot out on my own. But to start with we had one last brunch together – I picked De Bakkerswinkel, a cute bakery/cafe that I had been reading about. […]

Heineken Brewery tour, canal boats + Dutch Frites.

After a lovely morning eating cake and wandering the canals of Amsterdam, we head down to the Heineken Brewery. We went all out and bought the VIP tickets – it allowed us access to the exclusive rooftop where we got beer, burgers and a view […]

An Easter Sunday morning in Amsterdam.

An Easter Sunday morning in Amsterdam.

I’ve started working at a gorgeous little place in Victoria Park Village. I moved into a lovely flat facing the park, in the middle of my favourite place in London. I love Hackney, it has a wonderful vibe – and Victoria Park Village feels like […]

Shepherds Pie, chocolate scones + Irish craft beer.

Shepherds Pie, chocolate scones + Irish craft beer.

Early start today, we rushed off to London Gatwick Airport to catch a quick flight over the pond to Dublin. Husni nabbed an interview at a high profile company in London so he had to stay behind, so Eric and I head over to Ireland […]

Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden + Oxford St.

Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden + Oxford St.

Spent the day wandering downtown London with the boys today. We grabbed a coffee at Workshop, and head down to Soho. We wandered around Covent Garden and checked out all the little stores and stalls. We sat by the fountain in Leicester square for a […]

A day in the French quarter with Muffuletta sandwiches + a Jazz Brunch.

A day in the French quarter with Muffuletta sandwiches + a Jazz Brunch.

Last day in New Orleans, and it is what most of the town considers a recovery day after Mardi Gras. We were up bright and early however, for a Jazz Brunch at The Court of Two Sisters in the French Quarter. After a big meal […]

Moroccan tagines, soul food + crack pie and cereal milk soft serve at Momofuku Milk Bar.

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 […]
