24 hours in Vienna

To finish off 2017, all I wanted to do was to visit a Christmas market in Europe… namely, Vienna. The ones at the St. Regis in Dubai really didn’t cut it. To have some snow would have been the…

2017 Travel – the Ultimate Ranking

In 2017, I visited 20 countries. I have been very, very lucky. I live in hope, but I really doubt there will be another year where I can travel as much as I did in 2017. Anyway, I decided…

24 hours in the Maldives

Last week, I went with Matt for a quick turnaround to the Maldives. I mulled over this one for awhile. The Maldives are not a cheap destination. Even though its one of the shorter Emirates flights – and certainly…

Five days in St Petersburg

I had forgotten how beautiful St Petersburg is. I last visited in 2012, when mum and I went on a cruise around Scandinavia and the Baltic. We spent two days in St Petersburg, but it was really just one…
