Afghan Food at Zeytoon


I'm eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had Afghan food at Zeytoon in Kilburn. To be honest, my choice of this Afghan restaurant happened totally by chance as I had planned to eat at Uzbek restaurant Navrus. They however, have seemed to have closed down for business, but lucky for me Zeytoon, a few doors down was next door and open for business.

Five Alternative Museums in London


Yay, another bank holiday here in the UK, but what to do? If you're visiting London this weekend and not feeling queuing up for ages for the big-named museums, here are some alternative options to get your dose of culture.

Geffrye Museum


This museum is like going to IKEA or Habititat, but the difference is that every showroom is from a different century. And you can't buy anything. It's a wonderful display of living rooms from the 17th century till now and there are clearly marked explanations of daily customs and how things were done around the house in the particular eras.

Visiting Lokrum Island in Croatia


Visiting Lokrum Island in Croatia

Dubrovnik is a lovely city, but it is also a very popular city among big busloads of tourists. So after a few days of navigating the guided tour groups and dodging the queues as the many historic sights, you might be be lusting over a bit of peace and quiet, which is exactly what you’ll find on the island of Lokrum just off the coast of the Croatian town.

Azerbaijani Food at Azeri


I’m eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had Azerbaijani food at Azeri.

Word of warning, this blog post ain’t gonna be pretty. Azeri is nothing more than an Asian version of your local chippie. It’s a takeaway restaurant nothing more nothing less. The difference is that there is a random collection of Azerbaijani souvenirs on display in the window and a humongous poster of Baku by night. There are a few tables with plastic see-through covers, although the unatmospheric ambience of really just wants to make you put in your order and go.
