The Volkshotel in Amsterdam


I do love a stay at a quirky hotel of some kind and last weekend I found one in Amsterdam called the Volkshotel. It's housed in the old offices of the national newspaper called De Volkskrant. Of course it is steeped in journo lingo and themes throughout.

Soderberg Swedish Bakery in Edinburgh


Everything Scandinavian is so hot right now. So hot that even Edinburgh is the proud owner of a couple of Swedish style bakeries called Soderberg. My friend and I just happened on a smaller one of their 4 outlets, just off busy Princes Street on  Queensferry Street.

Five Cool Things to Do in Stavanger


Stuff to Do in Stavanger

I love Norway and the fact that it is so close to the UK makes it a great place to get away even for just a weekend break. I had a chance to spend two days there last weekend. I totally recommend it for a short getaway and if you do decide to go, here are five cool things to do in Stavanger.

A Valentine's Dinner with Nordish


The way through a man's heart goes through his stomach. And that goes for women to. So what better way to celebrate Valentine's with a love themed supper club? Last night I was delighted to be a guest at an dinner created by the girls from Nordish, a supper club that dishes up Norwegian/Italian food.

Hawaiian Food at Kua Aina


I'm eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had Hawaiian food at Kua 'Aina.

Okay, Hawaiian food is not exactly all that much different from any burger joint, but having dinner at Kua 'Aina does make a person happy.

Cruise Around the Norwegian Fjords


When you think of Norway, you think of fjords, right. Having had to travel to  Norway quite frequently in the past, I never really had time to go sightseeing. About time I thought, so last weekend I headed to Stavanger to see some fjords. I went on a cruise around the Norwegian fjords near Stavanger

A Spooky Tour at Mary King's Close Edinburgh


I do like a good spooky event, be it a Ripper Walk or a Victorian ghost story evening at a grave yard. So when my friend told me about The Real Mary King's Close experience, I put it on the list for my weekend break in Edinburgh.

The Real Mary King's Close experience takes you down into a labyrinth of underground alleys and tenements houses that were covered when the city decided to build the Royal Exchange on top of them. People that were living in these streets and houses were forced to move out, but their traces remain.
