Where to eat and drink in New Orleans

New Orleans is famed for it’s complex, flavourful regional cuisine and vibrant nightlife. Eating and drinking in the city was an exploration of several layers of foreign cuisines at every meal – American, Southern, Cajun and Creole.

Their similarities and differences have even inspired a book of their own! Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that they’re a power couple. When I was in New York, … Continue reading Balthazar NYC: Where Paris meets New York

Spring Racing Carnival has arrived! Melbourne’s biggest event of the year consists of several horse racing events where the fashion is easily more important than the races themselves. Derby Day, Oaks Day and Stakes Day all have different dress codes, but the real showstopper is Melbourne Cup – AKA “the race that stops the nation.” Across Australia on Tuesday, office lunchrooms and school auditoriums will … Continue reading Sunday Stories 01.11.15

Brunch & Boating in Central Park

Summer is slowly fading in New York City, so I’m glad that I spent Sunday morning making the most of the clear blue skies and sunshine in Central Park. We hired a boat and spent some time on the lake, before brunch overlooking the water at the Loeb Boathouse. Simple, but it was one of my favourite experiences in New York City. Central Park is … Continue reading Brunch & Boating in Central Park
