Debunked: 6 totally untrue myths about family travel

By in Travel Tips Comments Off on Debunked: 6 totally untrue myths about family travel

Family travel often gets a bad wrap.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. At it’s […]

By in Asia Comments Off on A coffee and foodie guide to Seminyak, Bali – The Food Curators

The warmth of the tropics. Surf for days. Luscious, organic food. Buzzing but never frantic. Speed it up or slow it right down. The colours (bright everything) and smells (incense everything). It makes us giddy just thinking about the place. The coffee scene in Bali is extraordinary but not surprising, considering it is a major […]

Collecting Moments

By in Travel Tips Comments Off on Collecting Moments

Collecting moments – that’s what travel is all about to many of us. It’s not just about collecting passport stamps or ticking off the bucket-list icons. It’s the bits in between that matter – the smallest details of the lives you cross, the flavours you discover, the laughs you share. It’s noticing that someone else’s […]

By in Travel Tips Comments Off on Why we sometimes lose the travel itch, and how we can get it back

I can’t remember exactly where in China I was at the time, but perhaps it doesn’t matter. My seven weeks travelling through the country had become a bit of a blur anyway. I was on a train, parked on an unforgiving bench with a cup of salty noodles for lunch (again) and a bottle of 2.5% […]

By in Europe, Travel Tips Comments Off on Photographic proof that Switzerland is too beautiful for its own good

Everyone knows Switzerland has an abundance of chocolate and mountains. But it’s not until you visit that you appreciate just how chocolatey the chocolate and how mountainous the mountains.

I travelled through Japan last year as the cherry blossoms were emerging, frosting the cities in bursts of sugar pink. Tokyo, Nikko, Kyoto and Osaka – I’d been on the road for over a week, and couldn’t shake a certain feeling, a weird alchemy of alienation, belonging and excitement that bubbled beneath the surface of […]

The world’s best food destinations: where to eat (and travel) like a king

By in Asia, Europe, Travel Tips Comments Off on The world’s best food destinations: where to eat (and travel) like a king

According to the “Proustian phenomenon” and a recent study by students at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, scents can evoke more emotional memories than any other sense.
