Cafe Mama Afrika, Marrakech, Morocco

Cafe Mama Afrika, Marrakech, Morocco

My first meal in Marrakech (and Morocco for that matter) was at Cafe Mama Afrika and what a treat this was! The food is very good, more African/ Caribbean-styled than Moroccan although there’s a melting pot of influences at work. Love love the vibes here, […]

Cool Tips for Iceland

Cool Tips for Iceland

With only three days in Iceland under my belt, I’m by no means an expert on travel in the cold country! However, I did a little bit of research and picked up a few Iceland tips along the way. Here’s a summary of a couple […]

The Ruined Garden, Fes, Morocco

The Ruined Garden, Fes, Morocco

I emulated an old school explorer as I scouted my way to The Ruined Garden in the medina of Fes. What a mission it was to find! Note that it only opens from 1pm so I had to find it twice, and it was not at all any easier on the second try.

Near and Timanfaya: Grand Tour Lanzarote Review

The busiest day of my week in the Canary Islands was easily the one featuring a tour! Knowing that the Canaries are well spread out, you do end up needing a set of wheels to get the most out of the place. Without that option […]

Tsujiri, Soho, London

Hey, its Tsujiri in London. I have had it one time before when it first opened in Melbourne. As a recap Tsujiri is a Japanese dessert chain with a 155 year history, now found all over the world including here in Soho, London. Matcha heavy […]

Café Des Epices, Marrakech, Morocco

There aren’t so much dining options when it comes to the morning hours in Marrakech. The locals enjoy light bites (usually bread) in their breakfast regime. So it’s not such a thing to eat out and spend your salary on smashed avo. There’s a few places around like Cafe Des Epices that cater to the tourist crowd who are in need of a hearty start to their day. Since I was CouchSurfing, I needed to head out for my own morning meal in any case.

Madklubben Vesterbro, Copenhagen

Madklubben Vesterbro, Copenhagen

Often I think back to my time in Copenhagen, and reminisce to myself: that was such a cool city. Everything is clean, semi-industrial, laidback. My final meal of this very hip city was at Madklubben in the equally hip Vesterbro area. It’s an attractive, hygge […]

Teacup Kitchen, Northern Quarter, Manchester

Teacup Kitchen, Northern Quarter, Manchester

This post is going to be slightly misleading, so I apologise in advance for this. The Teacup Kitchen is a super cute cake shop, but I went there for dinner. This means I would have had quite a different experience to anyone else who’s given […]

Tacos De Lyon, Fes, Morocco

Tacos De Lyon, Fes, Morocco

I enjoyed my retreat to the concrete jungle that is Borj Fes. It’s a pretty standard mall-type situation, but that’s not such a standard thing after having spent three days in the medina. It was time for some nice, greasy food to clog the arteries and satisfy a few cravings. I headed into the food court and decided to give the unfamiliar Tacos De Lyon a go. See how I fared.
