Ever since Copenhagen, I’ve been longing to visit other parts of Scandanavia and so for my birthday we took a little trip to Sweden. We spent a couple of days in Stockholm…which as you will see from the (overly?) long post is not nearly long enough as there is so much to see, do, eat in this fantastic city! Continue reading
There’s so much to see in Japan that choosing where to go if you only have a limited amount of time can be a bit overwhelming, but in my humble opinion it is definitely worth spending a bit of time (and stomach space) in Japan’s second city, Osaka.
Given Copenhagen has earned itself a reputation as one of the food capitals of the world over recent years, we made sure that a (probably disproportionate) number of our stops over the weekend revolved around food. One of the most memorable stops was at Amass, which is quickly rising to the top of Copenhagen’s restaurant scene.
Copenhagen is one of those cities which lends itself to walking…there are beautiful buildings around every corner, great cafes and bars to drop into and shops full of beautifully designed goodies. One of my favourite things to do on both my trips to Copenhagen was to mooch around and see what I discovered.
There are so many different things to see and do in Copenhagen but I’ll cover my top picks over the course of this post (in no particular order).
As Taipei’s tourist scene grows, so does it’s dining scene. From traditional night market nosh to kitsch ‘Kitty’ fare and the offerings of Taipei’s high-end hotels. We made sure to sample a broad spectrum of the delicacies on offer…
Our last day in Taipei was one of contrasts – we decided to spend part of our last day in Taiwan to escape into the nearby countryside and then return to explore some of the city’s most important sights (both cultural and pop-cultural).
Escape eat explore has suffered from a serious lack of attention while I focused on revision, but there’s lots to share from my pre-exam holiday to Japan and Taiwan and revision breaks so expect a flurry of posts! First up, our brief sojourn in Taipei.
As you might have gleaned from the short history of this blog so far, one of the boy’s favourite things to do is eat (and I’m not exactly averse to the idea!) So for the first weekend break we took together last year, we opted for the Basque region of Spain which is known for its gourmet food (both cheap and high-range),. We started off in the city Bilbao – renown for its art and food alike.
