There’s always another hotel to check out in London and St. John is a little charmer. Superbly located smack bang in the middle of the West End and in an adorable little building, the rooms are wee but nicely designed and the ground floor cafe’s a great spot for [...]

We do love an obscure museum, especially one that is hard to reach yet delivers all it promises. It is unlikely you will be just passing through Jablonec nad Nisou, a small town about an hour and a half by car from Prague. However, if you love glass, you should make the [...]

It’s early morning and I am ready to start a discovery trail in the far-flung corner of Poland’s Bieszczady Mountains.
This rugged and isolated terrain bordering with Ukraine and Slovakia is full of gentle peaks with sweeping pastures known as “Poloniny” at the top, dense beech forests and fast flowing rivers in the [...]

When my boyfriend and I discussed our engagement this winter, I had two requirements for a ring - no diamonds and it had to be antique. I’d never been the Holly Golightly-type of gal to ogle in front of a Tiffany’s store. I’ve [...]

Singapore Battle Box

Peter Hunt | July 30th, 2012

When in Singapore, skip at least one lunch of chilli crab and head instead to the Battle Box, the last hold out of the British army under siege when the Japanese invaded Singapore in WW2. Amazingly atmospheric, you feel how claustrophobic it would have been, down there, closed off, waiting for the inevitable end.
Take the [...]
