France is often on the top list of places to see for tourists visiting Europe, and for good reason. Like Italy, Spain and other countries it has benefitted from its long and often tumultuous history to become a splendour of artistic/architectural and natural wonders, and has plenty of things to offer visitors, so whether you are on a city break, on a beach holiday or are a nature-lover, here are

Porto Top 5 Things To Do

We usually try not to hop across too many cities when we’re taking our Spring/Summer break but we decided to make an exception with Portugal. Simply because this slender strip of land in southern Europe on the Iberian Peninsula has so much to offer, irrespective of the kind of traveller you are. After spending a few fantastic days in Lisbon (which included a day trip to spectacular Sintra), we decided to hop

flydubai Business Class – A wonderful surprise 35,000 ft in the air

2016 couldn’t have had a better end. Back in November while we were trying to make plans on where to escape one last time in 2016, flydubai pleasantly surprised us with an invitation to join them on a quick trip to Dubai. Given that fact that our love for Dubai has steadily grown through the years, we didn’t have to think twice about agreeing and before you knew it, the date

Guatavita, Colombia: A visual essay

A short while ago, we wrote a post about how we’re lucky enough to have day jobs that sometimes take us hopping around the world. This time around, we were lucky enough to visit quaint little Guatavita – a small town nestled in the Andes, where time stands still as ancient legends meet the slow life. Getting to Guatavita Guatavita, a municipality and town in the Guavio Province of the Cudinamarca

A day in Cape Town

Along with the back-breaking long hours, my day job also involves quite a bit of travel. And every once in a while, to somewhere I haven’t been, like Bucharest, Monaco, and sometimes to places I’ve been to far too often, like Thailand. This time around we were shooting a film in Cape Town. Shoot trips are usually packed schedules but on this trip, we managed to squeeze in about a day

Context Travel Prague: A walk through history

Let’s start with a little honesty first. We thoroughly research our travels before we leave home and in all modesty, there are quite a few times when we’ve baffled locals with our research on opening different doors in their city. But lately, we’ve found it immensely rewarding to join a walk led by a docent who has both professional and academic knowledge on a specific subject we’re interested in. We did this

Aria Hotel Prague: A unique symphony

It was our first visit to Czech Republic and we were ready to be blown away by everything we’d read, especially the music that was going to be waiting for us there. So when a chance to stay at the Aria Hotel Prague popped in, we jumped at it! Imagine a 5-star boutique hotel dedicated to music that would be home for a bit of our stay in Prague…we couldn’t

The Temple of the Reclining Buddha: Wat Pho

We were in Thailand recently for TBEX Asia 2015 and there were small tours that the organisers pieced together for us before the actual event. When I saw Wat Pho listed there, I jumped at the opportunity to visit one of my favourite Wats in Bangkok – the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. We’ve visited Wat Pho many times during our numerous trips to Bangkok but each time we went

Old Church of Amsterdam: The real gem in the city

I was on a short work trip to Amsterdam and found a few hours free on a weekend morning. Deciding not to plan anything in particular for the day, I decided to walk around the canals of Amsterdam with a rough map in my head. Little did I know that the Old Church of Amsterdam would wonderfully take up so much of my time that morning. There are great ways
