All white streets of Frigiliana in Spain.

22 May What to See and Do in Picturesque Frigiliana

Andalusia is best known for its mix of beautiful beaches and historic cities dotted along the south of Spain. However, its pueblos blancos (white villages) tucked away in the hills between Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra Nevada, offer a lesser-known travel experience. We were lucky enough to squeeze Frigiliana into our road trip through southern Spain, the town often labelled as Andalusia's prettiest. Quiet, quaint and colourful in its presentation, Frigiliana is not to be missed for travellers seeking out beautiful facades. Appearances aside, this village community has relaxed living down pat, making it the perfect place for stress-free travel. Here's how to experience all aspects of the town, making the most of sun-drenched Spain...

Launceston travel guide

10 Apr Your Quick Guide to Exploring Picturesque Launceston

Launceston often plays little sister to capital city Hobart but is not to be overlooked during a trip to Tasmania. This smaller riverside city offers a quintessential country experience with its mix of Georgian facades and sprawling farmlands. Located on the north coast it is the perfect spot to commence or concluded a trip around the island state. Launceston's attractions range from boutique shopping and wine tasting to rock climbing and river cruising. With so many experiences on offer if can be hard to know what to prioritise. And when your holiday is limited you want to know that any time you set aside here will be worth it. After spending two weeks in Tasmania I found Launceston to be the perfect summary of everything the state has to offer. Here are my favourite finds in the quaint city that make for a balanced trip...

Waterfront Accommodation Hobart

02 Mar Visual Tour of Somerset on the Pier Hobart

Hobart is a location synonymous with the coastal lifestyle. Even if you've never visited you've most likely heard of Constitution Dock, the spot where Sydney to Hobart winners celebrate their race finish. It made sense then, for our first trip to Hobart, to seek out accommodation close to the waterfront. Somerset on the Pier goes one better by putting you right on the water. The set of serviced apartments occupies a 1930's building along Elizabeth Street Pier. It's proximity to the waterfront precincts and unique view of Sullivan's Cove stood out to me as a great spot to base our activities from. Location aside, there are other benefits to staying in a serviced apartment too, which I'll discuss below. Throw in some fresh seafood sold straight from the boat and you've got every ocean-lovers perfect location...

Four Seasons Lisbon Review

27 Feb Video Tour of the Breathtaking Four Seasons in Lisbon

I've been really excited about sharing this post with you since our visit to Portugal last year. Aside from the usual thrill I get from capturing a new destination, our visit to Lisbon had the added excitement of a video project at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz. This is a hotel that epitomises luxury and for us videographers, offers up beautiful shots around every corner. Having explored the lower part of town in the days prior, a visit to Four Seasons allowed us to enjoy the spoils of 5-star accommodation in the cosmopolitan part of town. In fact, we barely left the hotel at all in our two nights there. Instead, choosing to take in the sunset from the rooftop running track (yes, you read that right) and living the fluffy robe life. That said, it's time to experience the most opulent hotel in Lisbon for yourself…

Plaka Athens blogger guide

21 Jan Why Plaka is the Best Neighbourhood in Athens

When visiting the Greek Islands via mainland Athens you can't pass up the opportunity to explore the country's ancient history. Being one of the world's oldest cities, its landmarks like the Acropolis and Parthenon are some of the most recognisable in the world. We decided to spend 3 nights there before heading out to Santorini and did a lot of research into what neighbourhood was best for seeing all of the historic sites. We realised early on that we needed proximity to the Acropolis balanced with an authentic Greek experience...not easy when you're talking about a city that attracts over 3 million tourists a year! Enter, Plaka. This pretty neighbourhood, with its colourful cafes and gritty alleyways, is just a stone's throw from the center of Greek history. And as you'll see below, not the tourist trap you'd expect...
