Baku

Exploring Baku’s Old Town

Looking for an East meets West experience? Look no further than Baku, the capital city of the ancient state of the Shirvanshahs. We recently spent three days exploring the Azeri city. I was surprised to find just how European it was – although the Middle Eastern/Continental Asian influence is obvious. My favorite destination in the […]

Jones the Grocer

Jones the Grocer at the Dusit Thani

Azores Hike1

Hike the Azores – Quatro fábricas da Luz

The moment we landed on the island of São Miguel, I knew we were going to love it. There is something about islands that I really enjoy. Maybe it’s the easygoing nature of island life, or the fact that nobody really seems to care what you wear or do. Whatever it is, I love spending […]

OneLife

One Life Kitchen and Cafe

I’ve already written about the Dubai Design District, the home of Craft Cafe and a new Japanese restaurant, Yui. My first visit to D3 was to visit One Life Kitchen and Cafe – and I wasn’t disappointed. One Life offers fresh, light and tasty food at excellent prices. It is one of those cafés that […]
