Greek Getaways

Greek Getaways

Swimming at sunset, swimming at sunrise, swimming on our own private beach. Washing back melitzanosalata, saganaki, grilled fish and greek salad with a swig of ouzo, watching local families dine at 10pm in the square of this little village near the port of Gytheio. Sometimes it’s the most unplanned, the most unexpected places that take … Continue reading

Meteora Rocks

Meteora Rocks

When the big decision you have to make is whether to visit Meteora or whether to visit Delphi, you know you’re pretty lucky.

One Summer in Kosovo

One Summer in Kosovo

Most summers I end up at the beach. In New Zealand, I’ll end up at a small house by the sea. When I lived in Italy, it was the lakes up north, Lago Maggiore and Lago di Como. When I lived in Korea, I made a trip to Fukuoka, Japan, to be by the sea. … Continue reading

Last time border control walked away with my passport (I’m looking at you Cambodia) I ended up paying a ransom … Continue reading

Let’s Go To Ljubljana

Let’s Go To Ljubljana

I should never have ended up in Ljubljana. When you look at a map and see how to get to the Greek Islands from Madrid, the best way is a cheap flight across the Mediterranean Sea. But for some reason, I thought that the best way would be to go almost the entire way by … Continue reading

An Afternoon Walking Around Europe

An Afternoon Walking Around Europe

It’s not everyday you have the time, money or energy to travel around Europe, even if you are lucky enough to be based in my beloved Madrid. In fact, if you are based somewhere like Madrid, you might prefer not to travel all the time because there is too much awesomeness to see here. However, … Continue reading

Spring in the Centre of Spain

Spring in the Centre of Spain

While autumn has been getting well and truly settled in with temperatures dropping and leaves changing colour, I’ve been reminiscing about spring. The blossoms here in Spain may not rival those of Japan or South Korea, but they’re still beautiful and an exciting sign that the dark and frigid mornings of winter have come to an … Continue reading
