Brunch & Bluffs: Toronto Edition

I’d absolutely love to spend all my time globetrotting, but unfortunately my bank account seems to disagree. Like all the time. Thankfully, I live in what I would consider to be one of the best cities in the world, Toronto. (And I’m not the only. Seriously. Everyone thinks so.) Toronto is a huge city, 4th largest…

1 Day in Paris (or more…)

There’s an abundance of things to see and do in Paris, and chances are if you have a day to spend you’ll be more worried about how to fit it all in, then what to do. You can spend the day (or 5!) visiting museums. Or you could shop all day, and literally spend every…

Photo Journal: Sunsets in Naxos

Kiki’s Tavern, Mykonos

Recommended to us by our hotel, we headed to Sostis Beach where Kiki’s tavern is located. At 2pm there was already a half hour wait for a table at this sought after restaurant. Waiting in such a beautiful location (and the free rose) makes it very do-able though. Looking right on a tiny bay beside…

Dalston Street Feast

After having spent the day at Greenwich Market and loving it so much, we knew we had to continue market-hopping and since it was a Saturday we headed to Dalston for the Street Feast market. Every weekend of the summer, a parking lot filled with shipping containers is transformed into a foodie haven. Several food…

There’s few things I love more than a good food market when I’m travelling.  A must-do if you’re in Greenwich, a quaint borough in London, the weekend market is the perfect place to grab lunch.

Travel Journal: Biking in Beaune

Nothing cures jet lag quite like an easy going bike ride where you get out and explore your new surroundings. This is exactly what I did after the long journey from Toronto to Beaune. We mounted our road bikes and headed east out of the centre of Beaune towards Ruffey-les-Beaunes. Catch a glimpse of the…

Les Popiettes

After the gruelling journey from Toronto to Beaune, France (1 cab, 1 flight, 1 bus and 2 trains later) I stretched my legs on a 25 km bike ride and was ready for a rewarding dinner. The girls and I went to Les Popiettes, a little trendy French restaurant in the centre of Beaune. Here,…
