Hansar Hotel, Bangkok

Our trip to Thailand began in Bangkok – the natural starting place of any travellers journey. Some choose to venture straight to the islands, on which lay the beautiful beaches that the country is famed for – while others stay on in the capital to experience the hustle and bustle of a Thai city. We opted for the latter of course, with two nights booked to explore and recover from the 14 hour flight. If I’m totally honest, I’d heard mixed things about Bangkok. The majority of people told me to stay away, or only stay a night if I…

Kyloe, Edinburgh

Edinburgh has a huge array of restaurants, ranging from fast food favourites to fine dining award-winning independents. In short, you’re certainly not going to go hungry. But if you only have a short amount of time in the city, picking just a few to try is a more difficult task than expected. Of course, you could just opt for my usual method of walking around until the hunger completely consumes me and I cave in and run to the nearest restaurant in site. Or, you could read on and gain a little insight into a place I think you’d like…

Mykonos SS16: What to wear on holiday!

Despite only having a small hand luggage allowance for my trip to Mykonos, I still managed to cram in a rather mammoth amount of outfits. I’m not sure what it is about holiday packing but I tend to prepare for the fact that I will probably be changing 4+ times per day, plus a bit extra. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone (well, I hope not). I do really need to refine my packing skills – because I did once arrive to a holiday destination (luckily only for a few days) with 6 t-shirts, 10 pairs of socks, 5 pairs…

Archipelagos Hotel, Mykonos

Sometimes, you can just tell you’re going to love a place the moment you walk in. The surroundings, the atmosphere, the decor, the staff – and a warm (or should I say refreshingly ice cold) welcome with two mojitos on a rose gold tray. It’s safe to say that where first impressions count, I was instantly in awe of our Mykonos accommodation from the very beginning – the stunning Archipelagos Hotel. Nestled at the bottom of a hill in the Kalo Livadi region, this beautiful place became our home for the duration of our trip – and I say home because the boutique aspect…
