The Artful Passages of Barcelona

Anyone that knows me knows I am fascinated by street art. No matter where you go in the world, you can always find that people have expressed themselves all over the city walls with colourful tags, designs and imagery.

Becharming Barcelona

I’ve spent the last week reminiscing about my recent trip to Barcelona; recalling the churros and chocolate, the incredible street art, the Gaudi architecture and the very kind hosts I had at my airbnb accommodation next to Plaza Catalunya; I was absolutely charmed by this coastal city.

A first time for everything: Plus Berlin Hostels & Hotel Review

There is a first time for everything. While I’m an experienced traveler, what a lot of people don’t know is that I am moreso an experienced business traveler. I have toted my cameras all over the world and have never really reflected my work in my blogging or photography but the reality is, for the last […]
