LET'S HANG OUT IN: MARRAKECH

Trust me when I say that no guide can prepare you for Marrakech. It is a frantic city which moves to its own beat - you can choose to move with it or not, the choice is yours. It is also steeped in tradition; certain things define this space, and are rooted to its very personality –the sound of steaming mint tea poured from a great height, with glasses clattering against a silver tray. The chugging of motorbike engines traversing the streets…

A DAY IN THE LIFE: BRIGHTON EDITION

I've lived in quite a few places at this point in my life; London, Portsmouth, Cologne, London (again) and now Hampshire, but the city I've lived in that I hold most dear will forever be Brighton & Hove. With that in mind, whenever I get the chance, I make sure to go back - even if just for a fleeting visit. People often say it’s a London by the sea and I couldn’t agree more; I’m always entranced by its ever-changing nature and the permanent buzz.

THE DESTINATIONS ON MY 2018 BUCKET LIST

I love to travel. I love immersing myself into new cultures, new ways of living, meeting new people and of course - trying out new culinary treats. Sadly, last year I didn't get to travel as much as I would've like because I invested my money into other things... buuuuuut this year there's definitely a few more places I want to tick off my list.
