Much has been written on the subject of genius. It appears in all forms, in all walks of life and yet the mere act of describing it inevitably falls short. Genius lies in the cracks, in the space...
In the mid 19th century, Paris was suffocating in the cramped network of its ancient streets. Until then, the city had expanded by developing its outer districts without any careful consideration...
So a few weeks ago I was lucky to get the opportunity to travel to Dubai through my work and let me tell you that place is an experience. The first thing that hits you is the heat because even th...
Italy is a country that's always full of surprises so when Mike Knowles suggested a 5 day road trip it was an offer I couldn't refuse. We spent our days visiting seaside villages around Cinque Te...
Even though I live in one of the busiest cities in the world it's always nice to get a breath of fresh air (literally and figuratively) and venture back to Yorkshire, a county full of history and...
When I travel I try to stray off the beaten path. You still get to experience the touristy side of the city but also find the little intricacies that only the locals really know about. During my ...
Following on from my previous post that showed my travel essentials and places to visit at night in Dubai, I wanted to tell you about the ultimate destination you probably did not even think abou...
If you're looking for a quintessential Italian experience then look no further than Florence and Siena. Both are steeped in culture and have a long history stretching back to Etruscan times aroun...

Last month I had a chance to see off an old mate who was off an whirlwind adventure in Asia and it gave me a chance to return to the city that started it all - Leeds. It hasn't even been a year s...
Day 3 of our Italian adventure took us to the wonderful city of Naples which is known for its rich history, pizza (which originated in the city) and passionate football fans. Maradona football sh...
Latvia may not be the first county you think of when planning a trip abroad but through serendipitous circumstances I ended up spending a week here in order to detox my mind and body. I spent the...
I want to start this post off with a confession. I've never been much of a traveller although the feeling of missing out was ever present. Over the last few years this has started to change as my...
A recognised UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Amalfi Coast lies in the southwestern region of Campania, Italy and is recognised worldwide for its cliff-side Mediterranean fishing villages, lemon t...
Everyone should have a role model, someone whose character and achievements you admire. For me that person is Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin and all round crazy guy who does not like to a...
Gandhi once said 'The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members'. This might be an odd way to start my post about Amsterdam but I believe the Netherlan...
I've lived in Camden for over 9 months and it's sad to say that our happy relationship has come to an end. The busy and hectic London life catches up with you and so it's time (yet again) to star...
