London City Guide

When you live in a city long enough, you sometimes take its surroundings for granted. London has been my home for the past six years and yet there are still so many places I have yet to explore and others which I no longer visit because I find them too “touristy” as they say. But I still have my favourite…

C.O.Q Hotel Paris

Continuing on from my week-long trip in Paris that I took recently, I wanted to share with you another hotel I had the opportunity to stay in – the C.O.Q Hotel. An acronym of “Community of Quality”, the hotel, located near Place d’Italie metro station definitely lives up to the standard.  My room, number 42, located on the fourth floor, overlooked…

Le Pigalle Paris

Last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to pop into Paris for 4 days and test drive some amazing hotels, the first and my favourite of which was Le Pigalle. Located in the 9th arrondissement, less than a minute away from the metro station Pigalle, this gorgeous design hotel is built to make you feel like you are part of…

The Line Hotel – Los Angeles

During the second half of my stay in Los Angeles, I had the opportunity to stay at The Line Hotel in Korea town. What a contrast it was going from staying at The Viceroy Santa Monica to a younger – I hate to use the word – hipster crowd of people. The closest comparison I can make is that it is…

The Viceroy Santa Monica

Is Santa Monica worth visiting? I remember my early trips to Los Angeles and hearing about some great spots in the area but dreading the drive. You know, like how some folks who live in Manhattan can’t be bothered to cross the bridge over to Brooklyn? Well, Santa Monica was the Brooklyn to my LA. Fast forward last week when Visit…

Ghana Travel Diary: 2

Continuing from where we left off, after the wedding was out of the way, we had three days left of our trip to see what we could of Ghana. The first thing on our agenda, the morning after the wedding, was to visit Kokrobite beach and do some go-karting. Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favour, so go-karting was out…

Ghana Travel Diary: 1

So, what has been happening in London since I went away to Ghana for a whole week ? I cannot believe it is already June. Half the year has gone by and summer is already at our doorstep. I haven’t had a chance to think about a lot of things but sometimes overthinking is not good. So, going to Ghana…

Les Bonbons

What do you get when you mix Paris and Uber together? Les bonbons. Oui Oui. What, oh you don’t speak French ? Let me translate for you then. Les bonbons is candy (or sweets if you speak the Queen’s English). Who knew French Uber drivers bribed their passengers with sweets to get five-star ratings ? That really worked, except for…

Barbados

I started out the New Year in Barbados and I must say I am happy I took the plunge and got on the plane even though so many things happened last minute. Leaving a frosty London behind, eight hours later and 4 hours behind London in time, I landed in sunny Grantley Adams International airport in Barbados and with a…

Wanderlust

I am not much of a risk taker although when I talk about how young I started travelling and the places I have lived, people think that I am brave. I usually say, no, that’s a normal life but to someone else who has never set foot out of their country, it may seem like the biggest deal. This year…
