Crete without the crowds

Crete without the crowds

The travel corridor announced mid-October between the UK and Crete allowed for a brief family escape to a Crete without the crowds. It was perfect timing for Sea Sand and Sun ahead of what is shaping up to be a very looong winter. It also gave me a chance to...

At the Banksy hotel

At the Banksy hotel

You know the street artist Banksy, right? Did you know that he has a hotel in Bethlehem, Palestine? It's called the Walled Off Hotel and generates lots of controversy, as you'd expect.  But whichever side of the wall you are on, Banksy...

15 family-owned secret hotels by the Mediterannean

Barefoot luxury at Zighy Bay, Oman

Barefoot luxury at Zighy Bay, Oman

I remember watching the movie The Barefoot Contessa with Ava Gardner as a teenager, and thinking that the title was the most appealing oxymoron. I feel like mimicking the idea here, as barefoot luxury truly says it all about the days that we spent at the eco-resort...

3 little gems in the Alps

3 little gems in the Alps

There's still time to squeeze in some family ski if you're in the Northern Hemisphere! Easter break falls really early this year in Europe, which means that the snow is still good in the Alps and the sun is already shining. Enjoying a ski vacation with young children...

The experience of a lifetime in the Brazilian Amazon

The experience of a lifetime in the Brazilian Amazon

Years ago, when I was wild and free, I took a trip through the Orinoco delta, deep in the tropical forests of Venezuela. It was just me (ok, and an ex-boyfriend), the driver of the boat and a guide. We slept in hammocks under mosquito nets, I bathed in the Orinoco...

Swap Swap and Behomm

Swap Swap and Behomm

Our decisions are more often than not driven by a sense of community, of belonging. This is truer than ever in the travel market. I talked about Kid & Coe recently, a brand new website dedicated to allowing design-loving families to rent vacation properties...

How I traveled to Syria for my birthday, and loved it

Yes I traveled to Syria last week. Not the broken and abused Syria that we all know from the news but the Syria full of colours, smiles and flavours that once stood proud. That’s right, that's where we all went on Thursday night with a bunch of super girlfriends and...

I wonder what Hemingway would say about Cuba today

I wonder what Hemingway would say about Cuba today

Everyone's talking about Cuba these days, and I am thrown 20 years back to when I first visited this special island, and left it with mixed feelings about its future. I was 20 years old back then. During a summer internship in Caracas (that's a whole other blog...
