Bloc Hotel at Gatwick Review

Bloc Hotel at Gatwick Review

I don’t like getting up early, so when I had to catch a 6 am flight last week I decided to check into the Bloc Hotel at Gatwick Airport. Nothing special to write a blog post about an airport hotel, but this one deserves a mention.

An Afternoon in Athens

I'm in Athens for TBEX 2014 and since there were no sessions scheduled for today, I decided to wander around Greece's capital without any type of guidebook or Lonely Planet. Just me and my spontaneity. And my Google maps app.

London Eats World: Serbia

London Eats World: Serbia

In my attempt to eat around the world without leaving London, I've ended up in the Balkan. I have to say that it was incredibly hard to find a place that serves food from the countries that once made up Yugoslavia. Other than Taste Croatia at Borough market which sells fab fig based oils and vinegars, all I could find was this random Serbian pub in Battersea called Paya and Horse.

The Christmas season starts early in the Netherlands. Around mid-November a white haired dude called St Nicolas and his reliable helpers, who are all called Black Peter, travel to Holland by steamboat.
