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.

Picked out and gifted. For two people who love planning vacations and trips, we’re actually glad we didn’t get the time to plan this one out, it laid out the red carpet for a

The Mauritius Guide

Mauritius. The very word conjures images of sun kissed beaches, sparkling blue waters kissing sparkling white sands. The whimsical colours of umbrella drinks to the whimsical sounds of Creole music. For us, we were lucky enough to have our experience hand-picked for us as a wedding gift. So we just went with the flow, doing very little research and planning before our trip. But for you, for a vacation that’s supposed
