4 must-try Bali restaurants

We spent four days in Sanur, Bali during a two week holiday around Indonesia last summer, dining on fresh seafood and sipping mojitos by the sea.

36 hours in Hungary’s buzzing capital – Budapest

Stepping onto Petaling Street is a sensory overload, with vendors selling durian, rambutan, and other beautiful and lush Southeast Asian fruits, while hawkers fry up hot flashes of stir fried flat rice noodles in fiery woks next to groups of relaxed locals munching on roasted Chinese chestnuts and gulping down ice-cold Carlsberg beer.

The cozy Cotswolds: A step back in time

I spent a few days in the Cotswolds with my family this past week, going from one small village to the next in search of elusive traditional British pub grub, cozy Bed and Breakfasts with quintessentially English breakfast fry ups and the best ale this side of the Thames. Before delving into my British adventure,…
