Review: restaurant Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse, Monte Carlo

In my previous post I wrote about my short but sweet time in Monaco and how one of the highlights was my meal at Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse. The meal was truly exceptional and quite memorable, certainly top 5 dining experiences and most definitely worth the journey to Monaco. Le Louis XV is…

24 Hours in Monte Carlo, Monaco

Part II of my KLM business class multi city journey and continuation from my prior post on my flight from LHRAMSTPE.

24 Hours in Bled and Ljubljana, Slovenia

In early February I decided to venture to Slovenia. I specifically wanted to visit the popular and famous fairytale lake, Lake Bled, 1.5 hour 6.25 Euro bus ride outside of the country’s gateway capital city of Ljubljana (pronounced Loo-Bee-Ana). That being said in doing my research, there is so much more to Slovenia than these two places. Fun fact,…

My 2019 culinary adventures started off with quite a bang (literally so many dishes exploded with flavors and textures at this restaurant) at Bangkok’s Gaggan, 2018 World’s #5 and Asia’s #1 restaurant. Headed by Indian Chef Gaggan Anand, Gaggan has shown the world that Indian food is complex, historic and can be refined and is…

Review: Thai Airways 747 Royal First Class SYD-BKK-HND

I kicked off my 2019 air travel experience with Thai Airways in Royal First Class aboard their 747s from Sydney to Bangkok to Tokyo Haneda.

Fairytale White Christmas in Tallinn, Estonia

After spending the first half of my Christmas weekend in Prague, I flew up to Tallinn, Estonia to spend actual Christmas eve there. Estonia is the last of the three Baltic states that I had yet to visit, I started 2018 with a trip to Latvia and Lithuania and it seemed fitting to end it…
