I'm always dreaming of nights at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow.
If you've been lucky enough to experience the Bolshoi, you'll know what I mean when I say it is truely magical. The chatter in the foyers, the tapping of heels down the gorgeous grand halls, the clinking of glasses toasting to a special occasion or romantic night. There's a certain atmosphere at the Bolshoi that cannot be replicated anywhere, except maybe on one of those cold winter nights when you're snuggled up on the couch, listening to Tchaikovsky, a cat purring by your feet while you read A Gentleman in Moscow.
In true @roam_y style, back in September I took full advantage of the Queens birthday long weekend in Australia. I added an extra 0.5 days of leave and spent 72 hours (exactly, actually!) in Seoul, South Korea. Here's how I did it...
Seoul was one of those places that was always 'on the list' but never too far at the top. Don't get me wrong... it looked amazing but I thought maybe it would be a little too similar to Tokyo, Taipei or Shangai. Boy, was I wrong...
A special list of cafes in my special place, George Town, Penang. The brunch scene in Penang is amazing. Yummy western style brunches in gorgeous old UNESCO heritage listed buildings.
Here are my all time favourite brunch cafes in George Town, Penang - all addresses pinned on the map.
Whenever I think of our time in Oman, I’m filled with warm fuzzing feelings of magical Arabian nights;
Nighttime breezes full of frankincense, palm trees blowing in the sea breeze rolling over the Gulf of Oman, twinkling orange lights from traditional Omani buildings, sunset reflecting off the sheer cliffs of the mountain side.
Over the past 11 years of visiting Kuala Lumpur, i've had some of the best brunches ever. I've accumulated a list of my absolute favourite cafes in KL, and share them in this post. They're all pinned on a map, for you to explore yourself!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see the same city through another set of eyes? Or what it would be like to experience the city with a completely different budget or travel style? Well that's exactly what Briar (@sosheroamed) and I have done.
Jakarta is less than a 4 hr flight from Perth and has TONS to offer. Some of the best rooftop bars I’ve seen, incredible shopping, a huge amount of local culture, such a cool hipster generation, and a crazy amount of accommodation options to choose from. Yeah the traffic is insane, the streets can be dirty, there’s been some decent security concerns over the past two decades.. oh and it’s sinking at a rate of 17 centImetres a year...
