“Live Like A Local”, They Said. (My Top 10 Fave AirBnb Homes)

The call to prayer echoed through Fez’s donkey dung-smelling alleys and towards the nearby hills. Booming as it was, the noise from the tumultuous crowd of campaigners (election in Morocco was to take place in a few days) three levels below was still very audible. We were on the rooftop of a dar we hired…

Adge Boutique Apartment Hotel, Sydney: Bold And Beautiful

2016 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice. World Luxury Hotel Awards 2015 winner. Boutique Hotel Awards 2015 winner. World Luxury Hotel Award 2014 for Luxury Design Hotel. Uhm, whoa. We had set sky-high expectations. It was the middle of winter, and our daughter’s school holiday… Why the heck were we in Sydney? Well, 1. I was playing tour…

57 Hotel, Sydney: Diggin’ The Dancing Queen (Room)

Tamborine Mountain Restaurants: Le Chile Cafe, Eagle Heights

Fond Farewell To Pre-School Nomadism

33 countries under her teeny crocheted belt. Some people think that, for her age, it ain’t nothing but a number. Sure, she can’t remember all the country names (and never correctly pronounced most of them). She can’t remember the tens of airports she passed through (though the memory lingers briefly for she’s got a photographic…

Yearend Round-up: 13 In 2015

What a month and a half of being settled down has taught me: That I am not ready to settle down. Not now. Perhaps, not ever. Perhaps I truly am the perpetual traveler that I claim to be. And this phase in our life, may simply be a ridiculously long pit stop. We began our…
