Best of Hackney: Guided Weekend Walk

22 Mar 2017
My favourite weekend pass-time is to walk around Hackney, from Clapton down to London Fields and through the markets down to the farm.. ending up at Columbia Road Flower Market, and even moving on to Brick Lane and Shoreditch. The other day I did this walk with a friend of mine, and she loved it. And I realised... you know what, I love it. And I think you will too. Here is my itinerary for a chilled weekend walking around Hackney + map at the end.

Yufuin's Onsen Spas: Unmissable Japanese Experience //

Let me tell you about my first (and second!) Onsen experience in Japan. Natural hot spring spas are an old Japanese tradition - and I'd watched many videos before my visit. But when you mix extremely hot water, complete nakedness and no knowledge of the language... well things get embarrassing...

What the HELL? Visiting Japan's Hot "Hells" in Beppu

15 Mar 2017

In my last post we had spent a night in Fukuoka sampling the terrific street food it’s known for. But that was only a pit-stop on our way to Oita, the Japanese prefecture known for its hot springs (Onsen). The Japanese are crazy into their Onsen and I wanted to try as many as possible – especially in the main Onsen region.

No travel experience is complete until you’ve order from a menu from which you understand absolutely nothing.

Atop Mount Misen, Miyajima

1 Mar 2017

A short day trip from Hiroshima (or even Okayama, on the Shinkansen), and covered in primeval forest, the trail up Mount Misen is one of the most rewarding hikes to be had. On this particular clear day Spring day, we decided to venture onwards and upwards.
