I kicked off the year with a short trip to Lisbon. Its a great city, with loads of personality. I stayed in Baxia/Rossio, the centre, its great super central, lots to do, and easy to get to everything. From the airpor, I took a taxi to Baxia, it cost me 11 euros one way. The…

Bubble Tent Hotel

This is on my bucket list… Hotel Attrap’Rêves has a collection of bubble tents scattered in the forests of Bouches-du-Rhone. The bubbles look small and cozy – some are fully transparent, while others allow a little more privacy and are half opaque.

Head First Down the Slopes of Innsbruck, Austria

In March, I decided to give skiing a try… so Innsbruck was the battleground. I have heard horror stories about first time skiing trips… but I can say that I survived but not without my fair share of tears, bumps and bruises. Innsbruck is a lovely little city, both to look at and to shop. The…
