Embarking on an Extraordinary Journey with Taylors of Harrogate

Slurp and spit. Then repeat. I’m stood by a spittoon next to friends and polite company with an assembly line of teas: black, green, herbal and fruity and we’re quickly becoming experts in tea tasting. Slurping with force helps to coat the tongue and allows for catching more notes of the tea we were told…

Hawaii through a lens & a bit of news

This is not going to be a typical blog post. If it was I would wax lyrical about the paradise that is Hawaii based on a recent trip in March. I would dive into how the history of Hawaii and the arrival of laborers from different cultures (Japanese, Philipino, Portuguese, Korean and Chinese) at different…

Beijing beckons :: a stay with Rosewood Beijing hotel

  For the best views of the Forbidden City head to Jingshan Park our Beijing guidebook advised. The wide-but-steep stone steps up the imperial park would have made for an easy climb if not for the last of the sauna-like heat that have been clinging to the capital since we arrived earlier that morning.

Revisiting Barcelona for food & culture

“Do you know how to eat that bread?” he asked from the next table over. I was in the middle of slicing a small tomato to top onto crusty hard bread, so hard that I wondered if it was stale, and in doing so committed a foodie faux pas on one of the most traditional Catalan…

Moments in Maine on film

There is one week out of the year that I love the most. It’s usually August, I’m likely barefoot and most certainly my family and I are at a lake house in Maine. The grill worked overtime cooking up marinated steak tips, pork chops and chicken wings while one of us hightailed it over to a lobster shack…
