I’m leaving Nice this time with my passport. My heart feels older but lighter as I head to the airport. I look out of my airplane window , the most glorious sunset you could imagine, set against the betwitching, blue waters that the Med is famed...

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 miserable as you. In recent years, as I’ve grown older, I’ve started feeling a little less miserable about the cold, I’ve pushed out my comfort zone and experimented with a few winter trips with mixed results. So last year, when I...

After 7 years I’m heading back to Sweden on a long but pleasant 8 hour train journey from Copenhagen. Our destination? The 31st biggest town in Sweden. Falun.

Some of the town’s most noteworthy...

Where are all the tourists ?’, we wondered as we sipped on a lovely glass of the local Müller-Thurgau wine. It’s 11.30am – must be wine o’clock somewhere. Suns beating down on our heads and there’s an eerie pindrop silence in the main...

One of the most common questions I get from readers is if I can recommend them a good hostel to stay in New York that is not too expensive. There are a few decent budget places to stay in New York but forget about finding a cheap room in New York. For anything half decent, good location, clean -you’re looking at around $150-$200 for a private room. One way to save money in New York is by choosing to stay in a hostel. Based on my recent trip to the Big Apple, I’ve...
