Melbourne is a coffee and brunch city. Over my two months living here, I’ve pretty much been inhaling coffee and devouring stacks of pancakes or muesli. Of course, I found a favourite spot to fuel my coffee addiction. That would be True North Cafe, just up the street from my Brunswick home. Continue Reading
Christmas abroad can be a tough thing depending on what you think this merry season should be about.
To me, Christmas these days has more to do with spending time with the people I love. Despite the fact that I wasn’t with my family this year, Christmas didn’t lose any of its magic. Continue Reading
Minimalism in the bedroom has undeniably become part of the Zeitgeist.

It’s one of those cold and quiet Monday evenings in the London suburbs. The kind of weather which makes you want to stay inside forever. I’m sitting here with family, watching TV in complete silence while I get the last details of my trip together. Continue Reading
My good friend Gaelle decided to bring me to the Col d’Aspin area while I was in France. A second roadtrip that week. Yet again, she barely told me where we were going. I just put my bags in her car, we packed up her dog’s stuff and then we drove the 411km to our destination. Continue Reading
