Temples of Taipei

The reason I wanted to go to Taipei was pretty much because I'd been to many of the larger South-Eastern cities, except Taipei. And because I always feel very at ease in SE Asian cities, a trip to Taipei seemed like the right thing to do.

Gorilla Tracking in Uganda

Seeing the gorillas in the wild had been a long time dream of mine and last week I finally made it happen.

Travelling to Iran

When I told people, I was going on holidays to Iran, I got not just a few, but many a raised eyebrow. Are you crazy? Is it safe? Why in the world are you going there? Were only a few of the questions that were thrown at me.

Where to Eat in Marrakesh

When looking for a place to eat in Marrakesh in Morocco, it can be a bit overwhelming as there are eateries pretty much on every street corner. Not to mention the guys who are tempting you to come inside and pick their restaurant don't make making a choice much easier.
Here are some of the places we found and more importantly, liked.

Where to Eat in Biarritz

When it rains in Biarritz (and it does that a lot) you eat. And that is pretty much what I did when I spent a weekend on the French Atlantic coast a few weeks ago.

My flight from Gatwick was so early, that I found myself having breakfast in Biarritz at ten in the morning. I found a fresh and modern looking brasserie called La Coupole right by the bus stop where the airport shuttle had dropped me and I wandered in for a typically French croissant, baguette and cafe au lait breakfast.
