An Alternative Guide to Alicante

On a gloomy Friday night in London, we boarded a flight to Alicante for some winter sun. Although the city is best know for its vibrant nightlife and relaxing coastline, we were heading there to make the most of the surrounding countryside.  Alicante itself is not the most charming city. The multitude of high rises... Continue Reading →

Sri Lanka III: Tea, Spices and Leeches

The Hill Country is definitely one of Sri Lanka’s highlights with its lush tea plantations, its misty mountains and impressive waterfalls. However, it is also one of the most visited areas of the country, with hotels and B&Bs sprouting everywhere in the main towns of Ella, Nuriwa Eliya, as well as in the countryside closer...

Ibiza off the beaten path

A Greek Retreat

Last Tuesday, I packed my bags one last time to go hunt a bit of summer sun in Greece.
