Bar Italia

During our last trip, Ricky took me to one of his favourite places in all of London: Bar Italia. Located in the heart of Soho, it’s a great location for some morning caffeine or an afternoon break. That said, I would have easily sidestepped the unassuming front with its shadowed interior had I not had someone … More Bar Italia

Eating London: Food Recommendations in Chinatown

Defying all rules of travel, I barely ate any British food whilst in London. Instead? Chinese food. Korean food. Japanese food. We were incredibly fortunate that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was smack in the Chinatown district, and we made excellent use of our time there by eating everything delicious that we possibly could. Canterbury and … More Eating London: Food Recommendations in Chinatown

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Two Years Worth of Anticipation

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve just come back from a lovely six-week trip in the UK. The main reason I went (aside from my handsome man of course) was for something very special indeed.

3 Photo Ops in 1: A Trip to Seoul’s Love, Trick Eye, and Ice Museums

This is my final post from my previous long weekend‘s worth of adventures in Seoul (see my photos from around town here, my photo booth glamourousness here, my horror over the busyness of Seoul here, and my reviews of TAG Guesthouse and Travel Maker breakfasts here and here). Though it might be the final post, I assure you … More 3 Photo Ops in 1: A Trip to Seoul’s Love, Trick Eye, and Ice Museums

Wrap My Heart in Bacon and Feed Me Waffles: A Review of a Real American Breakfast at Travel Maker

When I go to Hongdae, there are many draws: the soho shopping, bars, art shops, the Love Museum, Taco Bell – but in the morning, after I’ve recovered from a long yesterday of doing all of the aforementioned, there’s only one thing I want. Breakfast. Specifically of the big brunch style with eggs, bacon, hash … More Wrap My Heart in Bacon and Feed Me Waffles: A Review of a Real American Breakfast at Travel Maker
