If I’m having a dinner party or just want to cook an impressive meal, this mushroom and asparagus risotto recipe is one of my go-to’s. It’s easy to serve, warming and comforting. Ideal for the winter months. Although creating perfect risotto takes some time and effort, it’s definitely worth it when you get to see the delighted reactions from your […]
My sister recently got married in the most beautiful beach wedding in Koh Samui, Thailand. Family and friends traveled from all corners of the world, reuniting in the gorgeous Banyan Tree Resort. The resort is an ideal, luxurious setting for a wedding, with large, private villas nestled amongst jungle cliffs that look over the ocean. We checked […]
Marrakech is such a wonderful place to explore and photograph. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to explore the Atlas Mountains close by or the rest of the country. I’ll just have to return again in the future and see if it’s as fascinating as Marrakech!
Photographing Marrakech was such a delight. Surrounded by such gorgeous, rich colours there’s definitely no shortage of golden photo opportunities. Welcome to part 1 of my photo journey.
After a hectic time at work studying for my promotion, sitting through 7 interviews and presenting my project, the moment I passed I immediately booked a plane ticket to Marrakech to celebrate! I quickly searched through one of my favourite hotel booking websites Tablet, and found a gorgeous looking riad (private home) centrally located in […]
Our last few days in the Philippines were spent exploring Manila and the sights just outside of the city. It was a completely different kind of adventure compared to the tropical islands we had just come from. Manila is full of unexpected contrasts.

This is exactly what we did in Sangat Island Dive Resort, the only resort on the tiny Sangat Island in […]
I admit it, I’m kind of a beach snob. The ocean’s shade of blue, it’s clarity, the sand’s softness and grain size.. it all matters when you’re on the hunt for the perfect beach. If, like me, you’re determined to sink your feet in to the warm sands of the world’s best beaches, then I can happily […]
Shipwreck diving around Coron Bay in the Philippines is world famous for a reason. It’s more spectacular and epic than you could imagine. After reading about the many WW2 Japanese ships that were attacked by US forces on September 24th 1944, and how you can dive at great depths through the entire sunken ships, we knew […]
After a truly wonderful time in El Nido, our next stop was Coron on the island of Busuanga, which is also in the province of Palawan. Coron is the main town on the island for diving the world famous WW2 ship wrecks (more about that in the next post!). Not to get confused, there’s also […]
