Mad Hatter Afternoon Tea at the Sanderson

Blue Caterpillars, caviar scotch eggs and applewood smoked croque-monsieur. Not exactly the traditional fare one expects to find on a table set for English high tea, but find it we did. High Tea is often thought of as a 'touristy'  London activity,…

7 Tips for Traveling Like a Local in Indonesia

I've always wanted to publish my best tips on how to travel like a local in Indonesia, and when a friend of mine shot me a text announcing he's jettisoning off to Bali in the fall (insert jealousy here), I decided there's no time like the present.…

Minor Love Affair with Leighton Buzzard

I know I promised you all updated posts from trip and my word is my bond, it just took a little longer than expected! I’m here in the UK at least once a year and I never feel the jet lag in this direction, but for whatever reason, it has completely leveled me this week! […]

You know, it’s strange. Between the months of February through to May, my social calender is spotty at best. It’s as if I go into a hibernation or sorts. I don’t mean to, it just always ends up that way. It’s much easier to explain when I’m in the throws of a full time semester […]
