Soho Restaurants 3

Eating in Soho

It’s fair to say I spend a lot of my time in and around the the buzz of London’s Soho. Soho has everything to make my life complete: amazing restaurants, great coffee, mind blowing cocktails bars, intriguing boutiques and just a touch of the crazies to keep you on your toes.

Morzine 10

Morzine – Ski Trip

We’re not even halfway through the ski season, and if the Winter Olympics have inspired you at all, it’s time to book a ski trip! Having just returned from an all-levels-of-epic ski trip, I can highly recommend Morzine in the French Alps as your next ski-extravaganza destination.

On my recent trip to Milan I got to thinking about what it is that I love most about this city and which keeps bringing me back. You’ll see below, that the style and the Milanese men seem to play a large part here. So before I get to my city-guide, let me first share with you a couple of my favourite things about this awesome city. Continue reading “Milano Tiamo – Milan City Guide”
