Airbnb Wishlist: 5 Amazing apartments we must rent someday

If you’ve been following our Europe city guides, you’ll know that we’re big fans of AirBnB. An apartment is undoubtedly the best way to feel like a local, especially in a European city like Paris or Barcelona. The first time we went to Paris we stayed in this beautiful 3 bedroom apartment near Port Royal. It was 2 blocks away from the Metro, had a beautiful balcony, was well heated,

Grand Bazaar Istanbul: Souvenirs you must buy

I’d been dreaming of the Grand Bazaar Istanbul ever since the day I first heard about it. In my mind’s eye I’d already painted a picture of a dingy Ali Baba-esque cave, with glittering treasures within. So when we finally got to Istanbul, I couldn’t wait to go shopping to the world’s oldest shopping mall. The Grand Bazaar has four main entrances. This used to be the trading centre of Istanbul,

Sydney Sights: Darling Harbour, Circular Quay and the Rocks

This was my third time in Sydney and Charles’ first. Of course, it was the first time I was seeing the city as an adult, and was looking forward to how my new perspective would change my impression of it. I also wanted to ensure Charles’ didn’t miss out on anything just because I’d seen it before. We’d already spent a fair amount of time in Australia on this trip,

Exploring the Barri Gotic, Barcelona

The Barri Gotic, Barcelona is easily one of our favourite neighbourhoods in the world. We couldn’t wait to discover the secrets this neighbourhood, that was once the ancient port town of Barcino held. We were staying close to it, and knew we’d keep passing it. But we didn’t want to miss out on anything. So we set out exploring the Barri Gotic on foot. Exploring the Barri Gotic: Our walking

Christmas in Paris – Of yuletide and purple skies

Christmas in Paris was something we experienced on our very first trip to the city of lights. And it made the experience absolutely magical. She was decked out in her finest jewels, the cheer of yuletide visible on the otherwise stressed and hurried Parisian faces as sweets, wine and gifts adorned every shop window, the cold making us want to step into every heated store. Christmas in Paris is definitely

Chora Church, Istanbul: A hidden gem

The Chora Church, Istanbul is an often overlooked, unique and offbeat attraction in Istanbul. The reason? It’s really far away from Sultanahmet and the Blue Mosque where you’ll likely be staying. Getting there was a bit tedious, having to change trams and buses (trying to catch the correct bus at a large terminal where nobody spoke English was testing) followed by a long walk along the old city walls of

Free Singapore Tour, Changi Aiport

The free Singapore tour, Changi Airport offers is a fabulous way to spend a long stopover regardless of whether you’ve visited Singapore earlier or not. We’ve both been to Singapore on numerous occasions either as children or later on work, so we didn’t really want to stop off in Singapore and spend in time there on our way to Australia but since it was a long layover at Changi Airport,

We didn’t think we’d ever do a post on the Top 5 Places to Revisit, but here we are.
