Mad Bishop and Bear, London, England ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mad Bishop and Bear, London, England ⭐️⭐️⭐️

After checking into our hotel, our first stop was to get some lunch! I find after a flight I’m always insanely hungry, so we stopped into The Mad Bishop & Bear since it was really close. Located in Paddington Station, it was filled with lots of travellers having a quick bite before they catch their [...]

Mainport Hotel, Rotterdam, Netherlands ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mainport Hotel, Rotterdam, Netherlands                      ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Mainport Hotel was probably the most uniquely designed hotel i’ve stayed in to date. The design was modern with Japanesse accents. With many added touches, this hotel was such an interesting experience, and an even better conversation starter! While it’s not walking distance to Rotterdam Central train station, it is a quick tram ride [...]

Olivers, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Olivers, St. John’s, Canada   ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

After a less than average experience my last time at Olivers (approximately 2 months ago), I decided to give it another chance, and I’m happy I did! After the holiday season, it seems the staff at Oliver’s is back up to their normal high standards of food and service.  Olivers dining room is fairly small, [...]

Mallard Cottage, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mallard Cottage, St. John’s, Canada                       ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mallard cottage is the hidden gem in a tiny fishing community minutes from downtown St. John’s, NL, Canada. Driving by, you wouldn’t think it is a restaurant since it looks like a little cottage. Don’t be fooled by its appearance, Mallard Cottage is one of the highest rated restaurants in St. John’s, and with good [...]

Hotel Victoria Torino, Turin, Italy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hotel Victoria Torino, Turin, Italy                                 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

For our hotel in Turin, we were looking for something unique and comfortable, somewhere we could decompress and relax in the beautiful town of Turin. Hotel Victoria had such amazing reviews, and after we saw that it had a spa we were sold. The style of the hotel is very Victorian with all of the [...]

Ristorante Urbani, Turin, Italy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ristorante Urbani, Turin, Italy                                 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Upon entering Ristorante Urbani, you’re instantly transported into an enchanted forest. The combination of the tree lights, green foliage, glowing bunny rabbits and mushrooms, and the twinkle lights, you almost forget you’re in a restaurant. Don’t get me wrong, it is quite tacky but it was the vibe they were going for so I think [...]

Casa Broglia, Turin, Italy ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Casa Broglia, Turin, Italy  ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Casa Broglia is a beautifully designed restaurant, with a very modern industrial style. They offer both indoor, and outdoor seating. The outdoor area is completely enclosed with space heaters so it can be enjoyed year round. I was obsessed with the light fixtures inside on the ceiling! I also liked how they lined the walls [...]

El Puig D’estelles, Turin, Italy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

El Puig D’estelles, Turin, Italy                                 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Along one of the many roads in Turin, sits the eye catching patio of El Puig D’estelles. With its extra large sun umbrellas, bright red flowers lining the windows, and individual planters on each table, it really stuck out from all of the other patios on the street. Now that I think of it, I [...]

Starhotels Metropole, Rome, Italy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Starhotels Metropole, Rome, Italy                                  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Our trip to Rome was quite last minute, and even though it wasn’t high tourist season, a lot of the hotels were already booked. Luckily we came across Starhotels Metropole which offered the most reasonable rates for what you get, and was under a 10 minute walk from the main station. We arrived close to [...]
