How is everyone doing with your new routine of “stay home”? I’m an introvert and I really like being on my own and spending time with myself, but I have to admit it really challenges one to think out of the box and you need to summon the discipline in every cell of your body […]

It’s such a difficult time in the world at the moment and reading about travel probably isn’t the first thing on people’s minds. We can read, dream and gather inspiration and armchair travel in the meanwhile. When all this is over, we can make those plans for our next trips that we’ve always put on […]

My story for Culture Trip after the launch of Beijing’s first Michelin Guide with some of my old and new favourites.
