What to do in St Moritz If You’re not a skiier

As a location, St Moritz is synonymous with glamour, glitz and wealth. Renowned for being the winter playground of the rich and famous, it plays host to a number of sporting events, designer stores and award-winning restaurants – and it regularly welcomes Kate Moss, George Clooney, The Beckham’s and even royalty onto it’s neighbouring slopes. It’s certainly a place that’s always intrigued me that’s for sure. But as a relatively novice skier, I’d previously been too afraid to suggest a visit in case everyone else I found myself adventuring with were seasoned black-run enthusiasts. And with my luck, that would…

How to spend 48 Hours in Athens

I’ll be totally honest here. Until recently, I don’t think Athens had ever really been on my radar as a city break. Greece as a destination is overshadowed a little by the very Instagrammable islands of Mykonos and Santorini. We sort of forget about what the capital itself has to offer. And this is such a shame, because when I visited recently, my eyes were opened to how much it truly has to offer guests! Beautiful winding side streets filled with blooming flowers and secret restaurants. Centuries old history combined with street parties, flowing wine and delicious food. It really is an incredible place…

The Instagrammer’s Guide To Miami

With it’s art deco architecture, Cuban and Mexican fusion cuisine and platinum white sandy beaches, on paper Miami sounds like an Instagrammer’s dream. But I’ll be totally honest here, I wasn’t expecting to love it quite as much as I actually did. It’s telling of how much you’ve enjoyed a trip when the moment you return and flip open your macbook, your first Google search is to check how much return flights are. Em and I made the decision to visit fairly spur of the moment. We knew we wanted a girly break with plenty of sunshine – but equally, somewhere beautiful…

How To Plan Your Thailand Itinerary

Thailand conjures up images of baby elephants, pad thai, crazy Bangkok streets, beautiful beaches and the (in)famous full moon parties. It’s both a relaxing haven for romance and a party pod for graduates. I guess when I visited this time last year, I slotted rather nicely into both categories. David and I wanted a gorgeous relaxing break – our first official holiday as a couple, and yet I also wanted to visit somewhere with lively culture where I could celebrate the end of my University career, no more dissertation, exams or living 100’s of miles away from home. Yipee! And…

Why You Need A Luxury Weekend In Qatar

I’ll be totally honest here, up until about two years ago, Qatar never featured on my radar. The first I heard of it was a small mention from my boyfriend David in the midst of an anecdote about his trip to Thailand. “We stopped off at Doha airport in Qatar airport for a few hours, it was the glitziest, snazziest airport I’ve ever seen.” Apart from that, I knew nothing. And naively, I just saw it as one of those places you pass through on the way to another destination. Sure, I wanted to experience the Arab regions one day,…
