Where to nest in the heart of Soho

I love Soho. As a Londoner, Soho is so much fun and never too much. Every other week there are new cafes and restaurants popping up, every weekend there are parties and the area never sleeps. On a recent visit, I had to chance to stay at The Nadler Soho. I’ve walked pass it many times when I was living around the area but never had a chance to visit. Here I am, at the back of a small alley in the heart of Soho. I know the aree by hand, so for me, navigation was not an issue at all. The Nadler Soho doesn’t have a restaurant unlike many other hotels nearby, but being in the heart of Soho, you literally have everything on your foo...

The new place to be- Ian Schrager’s new The Barcelona EDITION

Sunshine, beach, tapas…There’s something about Spain and its culture that keeps you going back. I don’t know if it’s the warm and soft Mediterranean sun, the vibrant and rich Spanish history and culture, the passionate vibe of the country and nation, or the endless options of delicious tapas and seafood…possibly all of the above. Earlier last month, the Spanish city that almost never sleeps, Barcelona, added one more spot for locals and tourists to their late night options. Officially launched in late September, the Barcelona Edition celebrated its opening with a series of events. Like the other very cool Edition Hotels in N...

A Cotswold hideout

This summer in Europe has been amazing. In England, it was one of the best in the past decade. Instead of fleeing to the normal summer islands for a bit of sun, I decided to stay in the country and hide in the countryside. Realizing I have never really explored the English countryside, I picked a place I’ve never been. Without a clue how it looks like and how to get there, I picked Ellenborough Park. My previous experience at Coworth Park gave me a very positive image of how beautiful and calming Cotswold is, so I knew it would be beautiful and peaceful.  After a little research and lots of questions, my friend and I arrived a...

A weekend hideaway on the seaside of Palma de Mallorca

Summer season has recently started in Europe (FINALLY! ), and lots of Europeans are fleeing to their favourite nearby islands for a mini weekend or a long-awaited vacation. Earlier this month, I went to Palma de Mallorca for a mini getaway. As one of the biggest of the Balearic Islands in Spain, it offers a variety of activities for all sorts of people- family, singles, couples, small children etc. If you want to party, there are lots of options, if you want a romantic getaway, there are plenty of beautiful spots, if you want a quite detox or relaxing vacation, there are multiple locations. I wanted a bit a both- a little sig...
