Paris in pictures

Paris is arguably the most beautiful city in the world...romantic, stylish and iconic.
What better way to celebrate a city which continues to inspire the world than an equally beautiful book. TASCHEN's Paris, Portrait Of A City captures the city through the eyes of over 150 celebrated photographers.

Supper Clubs

Finding the hottest most interesting restaurant while exploring a new city is always fun. However even nicer is when you get to meet locals (and fellow travellers) over a beautiful meal. Next time you find yourself someplace new, look into a local supper club where good food and conversation are in high supply.

Ultimate Travel Piece

2012 Paris Fashion Week is always inspiring. Sometimes it is hard to find a practical side to some of the collections. When I saw this piece by Sruli Recht I instantly thought it just might be the ultimate travel garment. Imagine boarding a long-haul flight and being able to zip this up and cocooning away until the landing. Hello...we are talking first class!

Festival of Lights

Spending the winter months in the Northern hemisphere can be a bit blah. The folks of Ghent, Belgium have decided to do something about this. In it's second season Festival De Lumiere Grande (Festival of Light) runs from January 26-29. This free event that brightens the night sky with beautiful and imaginative installations that make the winter feel just a tad bit lighter.

Dubbel Duffel is great for those of us who often spend a bit more than we should when we travel.
The revised design based on the original 70's version comes in a fantastic array of colours to match any globetrotters taste!
