    Jun092011

    In every city I visit I like to explore the different neighbourhoods. Some cities are better than others, but one city that surprised me was Athens. In particular, one neighbourhood I really enjoyed my time in was Kolonakai.

  2. Our photo of the day: Playing around with exposure times at Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo

    Maybe I'm wrong, but as famous as Tokyo is, it doesn't have one iconic landmark that so many other cities have. There's no Eiffel Tower, no Opera House or no Statue of Liberty. If I was pressed to pick one landmark which is more recognisable than any other, it would have to Shibuya Crossing, the busiest pedestrian crossing in the world.

    Our photo of the day: The popular Nyhavn area in Copenhagen

    Jun072011

    I love Copenhagen, from the Little Mermaid to the funky free town of Christiania. There’s so much to see and do while you’re there. You can check out Hans Christian Andersen’s grave in the Assistens Cemetery or sample tasty local favourites at the sausage stands. You can also stroll through Nyhavn, which might be a touristy area, but is popular for a reason, and on sunny days you’ll find plenty of locals hanging out there down by the water.

    Jun032011

    Do you like to try local specialities when overseas? Unsurprisingly, I do. Granted, it comes with the territory of being a travel journalist. It’s my job to eat the same food the locals do. Thankfully, if I wasn’t doing it for professional reasons I’d do it for personal reasons, too. One such speciality is ‘moules et frites’ (mussels and fries) which is particularly popular in Brussels.

    Jun022011

    South Beach, Miami is different to other cities around the world. Whereas in cities such as New York City or Sydney or Paris there are a host of main attractions to visit, Miami isn’t like that. Instead, the beach is the ‘Eiffel Tower’. But here you will see attractions in their own right – lifeguard towers.

    Our photo of the day: Strolling along Avenida dos Aliados in Porto

    Jun012011

    One of the first things I noticed about Porto was the collection of eye-catching bridges spanning the Douro River which flows through the city. This Portuguese city is well worth a visit and while you’re there, you’ll definitely find yourself strolling along Avenida dos Aliados at some point.

    Wild nights out aren’t the only thing you can enjoy in Hamburg, one of Germany’s most-visited cities. One of my favourite places in the city is the Tierpark Hagenbeck, where you can feed the elephants and see all kinds of cool creatures.

    South Africa’s Garden Route is a great place for an adventure, thanks to the huge array of activities for you to try out. Probably one of the most exciting of these is cage diving with great white sharks, which you can do from Mossel Bay.

    Bath is one of my favourite cities in the UK thanks to the friendly locals and must-see attractions, including the famous Roman Baths which should definitely be at the top of your list. You’ll love this city because even though it has a real small-town vibe, there's always something fun to do.

    Our photo of the day: In Valencia’s Mercado Central

    May262011

    I love Valencia – I’ve been there twice. The last time was for a festival called Las Fallas. It was crazy. I can honestly say that I never experienced anything like it before. But the time before that was my first visit, and what I liked most about it was the fact that it isn’t commericalised like other Spanish cities. It’s got lots of places to explore, one of them being Mercado Central which is pictured here.
