Day Trip to Tai O Fishing Village

The busy and hectic work life in Hong Kong makes me crave for weekends out in the nature. That’s why I decided to start a new series on this blog documenting some of my favourite day trip ideas. If you live in Hong Kong, I hope it inspires to explore more of this beautiful city! and if you’re a tourist, don’t forget that Hong Kong is much much more than a concrete jungle so make sure you venture out 🙂…

Cars of Havana

I’ve never been a big fan of cars…until I went to Havana, Cuba and fell in love with all the colourful, kick-ass vintage cars running around every single corner of the city. From fucsia to yellow to turquoise, these old school cars put a Prius to shame! The owner of this car was looking at us taking pics of his car from his balcony and to our surprise, he told us with a big smile “you can go inside, it’s…

Cuba Photo Diary + tips for first time visitors

That feeling when you dream about visiting a country for years and you finally chance to go. You arrive there and it just feels surreal and you want to document every.single.moment because you don’t ever want to forget a thing.  That was Cuba for me. I know that it is not all rainbows and unicorns there, but it has a special charm that captivated my heart. The kindness and “viva la vida” kind of attitude of its people was so…

What to pack to a tropical destination (using one carry-on suitcase)

I managed to pack for a 2 week holiday in Tulum and Cuba using just ¾ of my carry on. Say whaaat? Yes, it is possible to go minimalistic and still rock those #OOTD photos. I thought about hitting ASOS and buying whole new outfits for this holiday but I realized I’d rather get creative with my existing summer staples and save space for souvenirs – and I’m so glad I did! If you’re heading to a beach destination soon…

Things to do in Valladolid (Mexico)

Today I’m taking you guys to the next leg of our Mexico trip (if you haven’t checked out my Tulum guide, you can find it here). After 4 days in Tulum, we took the local bus towards Valladolid and I have to say this town was such a beautiful surprise. We only decided to make a stopover here for 2 nights as it was a good middle point between Tulum and Chitchen Itza. We had very low expectations as this town…

Best souvenirs to buy in Tulum

Tulum (and Mexico in general) has the most quirky & artsy items and it inspires you to inject some colour into your life. With a hectic travel schedule ahead of us, I was not able to purchase as much as I would have loved to, but if you’re lucky enough to have extra space in your suitcase (and your home), consider buying some of these beautiful souvenirs!

Best beach spots in Tulum

Hope my Tulum Travel Guide inspired you to consider it as your next destination! Tulum in itself it’s the ultimate beach paradise and thus it’s not hard to find gorgeous places to take a dip and spend some quality #beachbum time. However, the beach trip is really long and you will probably not be able to see it all, so I decided to dedicate a little post to share my top 5 favorite spots in Tulum. As mentioned on that…

Tulum on a budget

Tulum has been on my bucket list for a few years now. Since we live in Hong Kong, it always seemed like a far dream to visit Mexico as it is more reasonable to explore Asia or Africa destinations from here. However, at the beginning of the year I had a YOLO moment of if not now when?. Luckily, my husband was on board with the idea so we planned a 2 week holiday in Mexico (first Tulum, a quick stop in Cancun, and then Valladolid) followed by a short trip to Cuba (photo diary from Havana coming soon!).

Things to do in Quarry Bay (+ some Insta-worthy spots you don’t want to miss!)

Recently I spent a whole afternoon in Quarry Bay, one of the most underrated neighbourhoods (in my opinion). If you’re a tourist, Quarry Bay won’t probably be on top of your list, but it is actually one of the most interesting places as it is an ultimate blend of modern and traditional, urban cool and gritty Hong Kong. Below are some my favourite spots in Quarry Bay. Whether you go on your own, on a date, or with friends, you’ll have fun…
