I usually have never been a fan of travelling in winter, especially to cold destinations. I don’t handle the cold very well, the lack of sunlight can feel debilitating plus the people you tend to meet in the destination seem to equally as...

Just a 40 minute ride from the chaotic and bustling Berlin, stepping into Potsdam feels like entering a different universe. Having visited and lived in Berlin for the past 10 years, I immediately asked myself what took me so long to visit this city. From Prussia to the birthplace of film, European architecture, international science institutes, and the decision to divide Germany, Potsdam is a wonderful microcosm of Europe’s diverse history and declared a UNESCO World...

It was a Sunday morning in August like no other. After waking up at the crack of dawn and after only a few hours of sleep, we drift into Copenhagen airport with minimal fuss.

Maybe its the romantic in me or maybe a sign of my age. There is something to be said about old fishing harbours and just sitting there, watching the world go by. Vociferous seagulls sail past brightly painted fishing boats while century old red brick buildings sulk in the background. I stand for an eternity looking at this scene and it makes me so happy. The smug happiness you have when fate unexpectedly brings you to a beautiful place you’ve never heard of....
