My Top 5 Movies of 2017

by noreply@blogger.com (Bex) @ Double Skinny Macchiato

The flip side of all the travel I've been doing this year is that I've had only limited time (and money) to spend on movies. Some of long-haul flights I took did allow me to catch up on films that I wanted to see at the cinema this year, but I only managed 18 cinema visits, and saw a further 18 films (some of which were re-watches) at home or on planes or buses. I did my best to see as many of this year's major releases as I could and also caught a few indie films, especially when prompted my free (preview screening) or cheap (Peckhamplex) tickets. Next year, I'm going to try to do better.

1. Moonlight. I went to see Barry Jenkins' remarkable film — which chronicles in a clever triptych structure the youth of a gay, African-American male growing up in the projects in Miami — at New York's iconic Angelika Film Center not quite knowing what to expect. Or, rather, I thought I knew exactly what to expect, but Jenkins confounded my expectations with its beautiful, melancholy and utterly moving coming-of-age tale. The performances are powerful, the three distinct sections fit together perfectly and this genre-defying film stayed with me for days. By turns heart-breaking, uplifting, intimate and all-encompassing, Moonlight gripped me throughout its 1h50 running time and left me wanting to spend more time with the central character in Jenkins' harsh but sensual world.

2. Dunkirk. Like Moonlight, Christoper Nolan's Dunkirk is also a story in three parts, but this time they are intricately interwoven and — because this is Nolan — they also take place over different timescales that range from one hour to one week. The central story is the odds-defying evacuation of trapped Allied soldiers during the titular World War II battle. Owing in part to the fact that World War II was covered in neither my GCSE history nor A-level (early-modern) history syllabuses, it wasn't a story I knew much about before watching the film, but I think that made Nolan's storytelling even more dramatic. There are some fantastic performances, including from RAF pilot Tom Hardy's sole visible eye, shellshocked soldier Cillian Murphy and especially Mark Rylance who, as usual, steals every scene in the most understated of ways as the skipper of one of the hundreds of civilian boats that were crucial in the rescue operation. Visually stunning and with a haunting score from Hans Zimmer, Dunkirk was rather overwhelming and definitely the kind of film you should watch on as big a screen as possible (I saw it at the Gloucester Cinema in Massachusetts, a rather low-tech venue where I also happened to see Jurassic Park, some 24 years earlier).

3. Call Me By Your Name. I had hoped to watch Luca Guadagnino's Italy-based coming-of-age story at the London Film Festival, partly because I was so impressed with Armie Hammer's performances in the two films I saw him in during last year's festival, Free Fire and Nocturnal Animals but I couldn't get a ticket. Instead, I finally caught up last week at a packed screening at the Peckhamplex. In the film, 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) is spending another summer with his academic parents at their villa in a small northern Italian town. Each summer, Elio's father (Michael Stuhlbarg) hosts a graduate student at the villa as a research assistant and this year, it is the turn of tall, handsome, confident Oliver (Hammer). Over the course of the summer, the friendship between Elio and Oliver grows, as does Elio's own confidence and sense of self, gently encouraged by his cultured, liberal parents. Call Me By Your Name is beautifully shot and perfectly captures those lazy dog day afternoons of the southern European summer. It's a slow-burner, for sure, but builds up momentum without you noticing, and by the time it reached its crushing conclusion, I was completely captivated. Both Hammer and Chalamet were very good, and there's a certain monologue during the final act that Stuhlbarg nails.

4. The Death of Stalin. Armando Iannucci's darkest of dark comedies, The Death of Stalin, was just what the world needed in 2017. The film offers a depiction of Stalin's final days and the chaotic aftermath of his death, as his advisors circle, posture, plot and betray. It is a funny film, and there is a cracking script that crackles with energy, as well as some top-notch performances (Isaacs and Buscemi were particularly good) from the ensemble cast, most of whom seem have impeccable comic timing. Of course, many of the laughs are more nervous chuckles at the absurdity of what is happening, and at times, you do wonder whether it's even appropriate for you to be laughing (which is precisely the point Iannucci is trying to make, I'm sure).

5. The Handmaiden. Not to be confused with The Handmaid's Tale, Chan-Wook Park's film The Handmaiden is based on a novel by Sarah Waters called Fingersmith, although I only found this out after watching the film. Park's most famous film Oldboy is an all-time favourite of mine and I also enjoyed his English-language film Stoker. Based on these past experiences, I was expecting The Handmaiden to be both twisty and violent and it certainly delivered. It's hard to say too much about the plot without spoiling the film, but it centres around two young women in 1930s Japan-occupied Korea. One woman is a wealthy heiress, who is kept in isolation by her uncle on her large estate. The other is hired as her handmaiden, but has other intentions and plans for the heiress too. At almost 2h30 long, The Handmaiden kept me gripped throughout with its clever, unexpected volte-faces, leaving the viewer in a constant state of uncertainty about whom to trust and with whom to sympathise. Park is a master storyteller and this film is well worth seeking out.

NB: I did later read Waters' novel, but enjoyed it somewhat less than the film — perhaps because I knew what was coming.

The complete list of films I watched this year is as follows (re-watches are in italics:

- Silence
- Children of Men (home)
- Sing Street (home)
- Hidden Figures
- Boys Don't Cry (TV)
- Lion
- Hacksaw Ridge

Dermatitis Cased By Preservatives ☆ Isothiazolinone

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

Dermatitis & Change In Environment An international move takes a toll on expats’ health causing a strain on their physical and emotional state induced by stress of transition. A drastic change in environments can trigger health issues. For instance, introducing ourselves to new household products and cosmetics overseas (and even back home) can cause dermatitis for those who are sensitive to chemicals. That is what happened to me. I have been suffering from contact dermatitis on my face especially on my eyelids and forehead since my family and I moved back to the United States from overseas in July, 2016. A couple of months after my dermatitis had started and the rash had become aggravated, I saw two dermatologists. Unfortunately both of the visits ended in vain. They neither helped me with a solution to the issue nor gave me any directions to seek. A half year later, my issue […]

But what if you are looking for something new and exciting to do in Munich. This Bavarian city offers many secret activities and adventures that are sure to add some excitement to your next German holiday, and some will most definitely push you outside of your comfort zone!

So once you’re tired of listening to the sounds of a glockenspiel and are done playing dress-up with lederhosen and dirndls, why not try these adventures on for size. Put down that bratwurst or schnitzel, book a Munich taxi, and head to one of these quirky off the beaten path attractions.

An Unintended Trip to Sula Vineyards: Discovering India’s Napa Valley in Nasik

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

A 3 to 4 hour drive from Mumbai, Sula Vineyards is the oldest winery in India. It is a fabulous way to unwind from the hectic bustle of city life, where you can discover the place where Indians first experienced wine.

In 1996, Rajeev Samant planted the first wine grapes in Nashik and today this region is India’s premier wine-growing region, producing 80% of the country’s total wine.

Spread over a total of over 3000 acres, Sula’s vineyards are home to some of India’s finest grapes, so if you’re looking for a place for your next wine tour, you should visit Nashik, in Maharashtra state.

This is India’s Napa Valley; after Sula Vineyards was established in 1999, 35 other wineries followed suit in the region over the next decade. It’s quite incredible how one man paved the way for the emergence of India’s Wine Capital.

Move Over Las Vegas; Here are 3 Reasons Why Tourists Prefer Macau

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Thanks to appearances in countless Hollywood movies, Las Vegas has been widely regarded as the gambling capital of the world, with the bright lights of Sin City drawing visitors from around the globe for many decades.

However, the famous Nevada city can no longer claim to be the king of casino culture, and, in truth, hasn’t been for just over a decade now.

Rising to park itself firmly on that particular throne is Macau, which has transformed itself remarkably from what was once a sleepy fishing port to a booming Asian tourist destination at the top of many ‘must visit’ lists. Move over Las Vegas, because Macau is where the action is!

Work and travel? 10 pros and cons of freelancing on the road

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

While Sarah and I managed to accumulate a small pile of cash from selling everything we owned before leaving on our nomadic adventure, we knew we were going to have to work and travel if we wanted to do this for the long haul. Not only did we need to cover our travel expenses, but we also had two mortgages to service, and the rental income didn’t cover the repayments. When we got to Thailand, about five weeks into our trip, I managed to get a job teaching English in Chiang Mai. It was only 16 hours a week which gave me plenty of time to explore the area, but the pay was ordinary by Australian standards at $US9 per hour. That meant while I made enough to enjoy living in northern Thailand, it didn’t even come close to covering the mortgage repayments back home. It was during our two month stay in Chiang Mai that Sarah started working online as a freelance writer. She signed up to a couple of freelancing websites and began applying for writing jobs. Despite having no experience as a writer, in no time at all she managed to acquire several clients via Upwork. Initially [...]

Dear Female Travelers: Reasons Knixwear Is the Greatest Travel Underwear You’ll Ever Own!

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Forget your passport, when it comes to travel, appropriate underwear is one of the most essential things. (Don’t actually forget your passport, but I’m sure you get what I meant!)

But traditional cotton underwear isn’t always the best option for travel – they’re slow drying and they absorb moisture meaning cotton isn’t the most comfortable or hygienic thing to wear for extended periods of time.

Underwear might be one of those things you don’t think twice about, but purchasing a pair for the practicalities of travel can make or break a trip. There are plenty of options out there for travel-specific underwear, but when it comes to being specifically designed for women, Knixwear is a Canadian based brand you should know.

The following are seven reasons why Knixwear is the greatest travel underwear you’ll own. But the biggest reason? The amount of confidence you gain from wearing them, for all the reasons below.

My Favorite Places in Kamakura ☆ Japan

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

Kamakura City ☆ Japan Kamakura is a city South West of Tokyo with many temples and shrines, and a beach vibe. This lovely coastal city has become my children’s favorite destination during our trip back to Japan in the summer. In Kamakura you see traditional Japanese architecture coexist with modern stylish buildings. The city lies on the coast facing the Pacific Ocean and many of its beaches are surfers’ hangouts. It is a great place for a short get away from Tokyo since it only takes about an hour from the central Tokyo by train, Shonan Shinjuku Line. You will find Kamakura much more relaxing, lush, and traditional than it is in Tokyo. The photos I have taken and posted on this post were all taken and edited with a VSCO Cam on my iPhone.

The Ultimate Travel Guide to Stockholm’s Gamla Stan

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

A trip to Stockholm isn’t complete without a trip to Gamla Stan. The city’s Old Town, and one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe, this is after all where Stockholm began, all the way back in 1252.

Made up of 4 islands, Gamla Stan is mainly focused on the largest of the group, historically known as Stadsholmen. Stockholm itself means “log island” and as the legend goes, Swedes looking for a new capital that was safe from armed gangs, had filled a log with gold and sent it adrift. When it landed on what is now Gamla Stan, they knew they had found their new capital city.

Gamla Stan is a living museum filled with beautiful churches, narrow winding cobblestone streets, colourful architecture, the finest restaurants, and accommodation to suit all tastes. This is the real Stockholm, and where every Stockholm adventure should begin.

Consider this your ultimate guide to staying, playing, and eating in Gamla Stan.

The negative impacts of tourism are usually pretty clear to the traveler feeling particularly perceptive. But ecotourism is the belief that travel should be ultimately beneficial to both the tourist and the host country.

There is a balance we should all try to find while traveling: remain safe but also truly experience the local scene. Make ripples, but not a splash. Take only memories, leave only footprints. The following are four key things to consider for those looking to travel responsibly in 2018.

A Little Hospitality… A Guest is a Gift from God

A Little Hospitality… A Guest is a Gift from God

by Shannon @ A Little Adrift: Wanderings & Traveling the World

A throaty tenor danced across the inky night, joined moments later by a chorus of lighter voices. The empty footpath widened as I approached the Kartlis Deda statue. The disembodied voices echoed across the cool night. Lit in soft green, Mother Georgia towered above me. The nearby voices lifted in perfect harmony, swelling as the ethereal melody penetrated […]

7 Things To Know Before Travelling by Overnight Train in Vietnam - Mapping Megan


Mapping Megan

As many a traveler will tell you, taking an overnight train in Asia is quite an adventure, one that I have always found to be enjoyable and something to look forward to.Overnight trains are my favorite means of covering long distances because they're usually friendlier to my budget and more comfortable than taking long road trips being cramped in a small car or bus.The other advantage is that you get to stretch your legs out and get a good night’s sleep in exchange for just a little bit more than you would pay for a hostel or budget hotel.

Cherry Blossoms in Washington, D.C. 2017

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

Cherry Blossoms in Washington, D.C. 2017 These are cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C. photographed on March 13, 2017. In the morning I read on the news that a snow storm, Stella, was approaching the northeast coast of the United States and the cold spell could possibly damage the cherry blossoms. I was worried that many cherry blossoms may not bloom this year. I also learned that some have already bloomed, so I decided on a whim to explore a bit around Tidal Basin to check them out with my son. Since my son who is pre-school age is homeschooled this year (this is a whole another topic), it allowed me to do something spontaneous like this. When I approached Tidal Basin, I could tell that it was way before the peak bloom. However, I did see some that have bloomed. These are one of the few cherry blossom trees that […]

Why Sri Lanka Inspires for a Second Trip

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Since I started travelling four years ago, I have been lucky enough to experience truly varied cultures and places, many of which I hold dear. Sri Lanka, however, has always had a special place in my heart and I’ve made it my mission to convince everyone else of its merits.

Despite a troubled past, Sri Lanka and its people are well on their way to a full recovery. More than that, they are very welcoming to people who wish to experience the beauty of their country and perhaps contribute a bit to stimulating the local economy.

I had such a great experience in Sri Lanka that I even decided to start my own blog about the country and inspire as many people as possible to visit! You can find the blog at takemetosrilanka.com.

With friendly people, incredible food, and stunning locations throughout the country, there are plenty of reasons to choose Sri Lanka as your holiday destination. You’ll love Sri Lanka for the following reasons, and it’s for these reasons that the country will inspire a second trip!

A Little Portrait… Stories of Microfinance from the Women of the Oaxaca Valley, Mexico

Here’s the Thing About Eating Dog in Vietnam…

by Mike @ Hanoi For 91 Days

Before arriving, we'd read a lot about the Vietnamese penchant for chowing down on "man's best friend". However, during our three months in Saigon, we hadn't seen a single plate of dog being offered anywhere, and decided the stories were exaggerated. But it turns out that, in the north, they do eat dog. And it's not exactly uncommon.

WARNING: This article contains an image of a dead, cooked dog.

15 freelancer jobs to make money on the road

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

Being a freelancer is a recent phenomenon from a mass scale point of view. Once upon a time work and travel were mutually exclusive pastimes for almost everyone. You either worked or you travelled, but 99% of us really couldn’t do both. Of course back when I first travelled overseas I worked as a primary school teacher in London for two years, but that was different. I couldn’t just get up and live somewhere else one day just because I felt like it. I was living in London, in a bricks and mortar building I had to go to Monday to Friday, earning money by teaching little English kids how to read and write. Today things are much, much different. The freelancer community is exploding and the amount of people either leaving their jobs to freelance online, or negotiating with their employer to work from home or on their travels, is in the tens of millions worldwide. For many it doesn’t matter whether you’re in your home office or on a beach in the Bahamas, as long as you have a laptop and an internet connection you can do the exact same job to the exact same standards. Without any qualifications, [...]

There’s no escaping the passion for sport in Melbourne

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The level of passion the locals have for sport in Melbourne is insane. Read the two major newspapers, listen to any talk back radio, or turn on the TV at pretty much any stage across the weekend, and chances are sport will be front and centre. I love my sport, I worked in professional sport in Melbourne for nine years, and even I get sick of the coverage.

Experiencing a Whale Watching Tour in Sydney

by Sarah Appleford @ Travelling Apples

One of my most memorable experiences during our travels has been whale watching.  To see these enormous creatures launch majestically into the water is incredible.  So when I was up to Sydney for work, I couldn’t wait to catch the last of the humpback whale season with Oz Whale Watching tours. Gathered at King St Wharf 9 at 8am, we were a group of about 20 people with cameras eager to catch a glimpse of a whale or two.  Once on board we headed out through the Harbour guided by our host Biggles.  Sydney of course put on perfect weather for our outing which enabled us to soak up many of her sights including Luna Park, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Luna Park on the harbour’s edge The impressive Sydney Opera house best seen from the water Biggles’ voice could be heard in the background as we cruised towards the heads, sharing a bit of history of Sydney and about the whales themselves. During this time of year the humpback whales are making their way south, and sightings of mothers with their newborn calves can be had. This leg of their journey is a little slower than usual so [...]

Leather Bags ☆ Leather Field in Dharavi

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

LEATHER BAGS IN DHARAVI BY LEATHER FIELD If you are looking for a shop to have leather bags made, I highly recommend Leather Field. Leather Field is a shop in Dharavi, Mumbai that specializes in order made items such as purses, jackets, wallets, and so forth. According to the shopkeeper, Leather Field owns its workshop where their craftsmen work directly for them. I found that this system enables Leather Field to control product quality and prices better as opposed to some shops which seem to outsource their orders to independent workshops. What I loved about Leather Field was that they were always professional, punctual and reliable. Punctuality was not always seen at Famous Sales Leather Boutique that I previously used for making a few leather bag. The quality of craftsmanship at Leather Field was higher than the other shop I mentioned. Therefore, I started ordering from Leather Field in the […]

The pink lakes of Murray Sunset National Park are truly breathtaking. Endlessly blue skies sit against bright pink waters and sparkling salt deposits; this is one phenomenon you have to see to believe.

Shopping in Melbourne, where to get your fashion fix

Melbourne is defined by its suburbs, and almost every suburb has it’s own shopping precinct.

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Are you looking for an extreme trekking challenge? Then you’ll love Nepal’s epic 62-kilometer trek to Everest Base Camp which lies 5,365 meters above sea level.

The Mount Everest base camp trek will take you through tiny mountain villages and pine forests, alongside topaz rivers and across staggeringly-high suspension bridges to the foot of the world’s highest mountain. However, with sub-zero temperatures and altitude sickness to contend with this isn’t a challenge for the faint-hearted.

Having completed the trek myself, here are some important tips on how to survive the journey to Everest Base Camp.

34 bite sized travel tips to make life easier

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

When you travel nomad-style, slowly moving from place to place, you very quickly learn plenty of travel tips to make your life just that little bit easier. Stopping and soaking up the culture of a place, rather than ticking tourist attractions off a bucket list, is very different to using your 3-4 weeks off work every year to lie on a beach at a resort. Whether you’re travelling alone, with someone else, or as a family like we do, you’ll very quickly learn what works and what doesn’t for you and your particular needs and circumstances. Our first destination when we left Australia was Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, and before we’d left our first hotel we’d made changes to the way we travelled. Your travel learning curve really is that quick! So, to give you a head start on things to think about for when you start travelling, or even if you’re already on your way, here are 34 bite sized travel tips to make you’re travel life a bit easier. Learn to be patient I must admit I get frustrated easily, and when travelling like we do, frustrating situations arise every day. From not understanding the language, [...]

An Overview of Different Travel Bags: Why it’s so Important to Choose the Right Bag for Your Trip

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

I’m sure every traveler at some stage has found themselves in the situation where they’re stuck traveling with the wrong kind of bag.

Whether it’s trying to lug a suitcase through the jungle and beating the crap out of your wheels (been there), or throwing everything into a hiking pack for a stay at a luxury hotel, a travel experience is often about choosing the right kind of bag.

And there are many different types of bags, which will be suitable for different types of trips. So don’t fall into the trap of thinking any bag will do, because you just need something which will transport your things.

Bags are not sacks. They are not meant to be used as sacks. Bags are painstakingly blueprinted to strike a perfect balance between design and utility, for specific types of trips.

So to avoid committing ‘bags faux pas’, consider the following types of bags, and which will be most suitable for your upcoming trip.

The east coast of Tasmania is all about the beaches

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The east coast of Tasmania is all about the beaches. The sand is a brilliant white and the water a magnificent crystal-clear blue that you usually see on travel brochures and postcards. The big grey rocks with splashes of bright orange act as the beach’s bookends, while the native bushland that often lines the beach’s edge remains virtually untouched. The beaches are not tropical. Instead they are rugged, wild and sometimes isolated. And despite the Great Eastern Drive from Orford in the south to St Helens in the north being famous the world over for its spectacular coastal views, you’ll often have the beach to yourself if you choose to stop for a swim or a walk. Anywhere else on Earth, and a coastline like this would be a magnet for hotel chains, global tourist operators and real estate developers. But for some reason Tasmania’s east coast remains a quiet, charming and relatively undiscovered corner of the world lined with quaint little towns and spectacular national parks. We spent five days exploring the east coast from our rental home in Four Mile Creek, a town consistently of exactly four streets, a children’s playground and a cricket ground. Our balcony overlooked [...]

How to Book the Cheapest Hotels in 2018 (Which Match Your Travel Style Perfectly)

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

One of my biggest pieces of advice for booking a hotel has always been to ask yourself why. And the answer should be beyond the obvious “I need a place to stay for the night”.

Because millions of people are booking into hotels every night. But how many of them are actually getting their choice right?

The solution? Nustay; a new hotel search engine which has 1.2 million hotels at rates cheaper than any other online booking site (seriously). And, by crunching data about your interests, it matches you with hotels which reflect your travel style.

After having visited the Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors Exhibit at Hirshhorn Museum in person, I would say that it was out of this world experience to me. I found very helpful to know about the Kusama exhibit before going there because it is a very different museum experience from the usual ones. My two friends who had already gone to the exhibit and inspired me to go helped me prepare by teaching me some facts and details about the exhibit before I headed to the museum.

Accidentally Homeschooling My Pre-K Child

We live in the area where almost all preschool aged children especially at his age (as far as I know) go to a preschool. “Accidentally homeschooling” because if we didn’t move back to the D.C. metropolitan area in the last year of my son’s preschool, I probably would have not chosen this path. In expat life it’s not uncommon to fall into a situation accidentally.

Buying A Home Site Unseen

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

BUYING A HOME SITE UNSEEN Buying a home without seeing the actual property comes with a risk and is not ideal, let alone a huge commitment. Nevertheless, it is a choice that some people end up making because of their circumstances. Some expats, for example, buy a home site unseen when they are still living overseas so that they would secure a home to move into and a school to enroll their children on time, and start the process of the transition. It was mere a year ago or so when my husband and I made a final decision to buy our current home. We literally put on an offer during our vacation in Sri Lanka. It was a surreal experience and felt just like an online shopping. The difference was that there was no return policy. It was our first time to be a home buyer. Needless to say […]

My 13 favourite travel movies of all time

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

As someone who loves to travel, there’s something extra special about watching travel movies. I’m an enormous movie buff. I’ll watch almost any kind of movie, and even if it’s rubbish, find something to enjoy about it. As soon as I watch a really good travel movie, I want to head into my bedroom, get my backpack out, fill it up with clothes and head to the airport. Being inspired to travel by watching amazing travel movies is one of life’s great pleasures. Here is a list of my 13 favourite travel movies of all time. Apart from the common travel theme running through them all, they all have other concepts and ideas that conjures up an incredible sense of wanderlust whenever I watch them. The idea that it’s never too late to travel, it will change your life immeasurably, you’ll meet amazing people along the way, and that we should use every day we have to live life to the fullest, are so powerful they inspired me to sell everything I owned and set off on a nomadic adventure with my wife and son. So if you’re at home looking for travel inspiration, on the road with time to [...]

Four Places Worth Visiting in Santorini

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

As your ferry approaches the port of Santorini and you watch the island getting closer and closer, it’s easy to believe that you’re sailing into the view of one of Alfred Sislay’s idyllic paintings.

On the southernmost border of the Aegean archipelago, Santorini is not only considered to be one of the most beautiful islands of Greece, but one of the most stunning in the world.

Once you set foot on the island, Santorini will take you on a trip into its past: it’s here you’ll come face to face with the ancient Minoan civilization and the magnificent frescoes it left behind, the grand and fearsome eruption of its volcano and the huge caldera that’s still marveled at by thousands of tourists each year, and of course, its beautiful re-birth as one of the most picturesque places of this Earth.

These are the four top places to visit while you’re there.

Where to Lose and … Find Yourself in Greek Mykonos

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

The Aegean Sea has been characterized by many as the heart of the Mediterranean and has been commonly linked to colorful mythology, tales of pirates and fishermen, and, in recent years, as the hot-spot of cosmopolitan summer party life for island-hoppers.

Among the family of the Aegean islands however, stands one in particular which is perhaps its most precious jewel: Mykonos beams effervescently due west and it’s certainly not shy at showing it.

Being the favourite destination of vacationists worldwide, Mykonos has become synonymous to beautiful, luxurious and vibrant vacations. But Mykonos is so much more than what the eye meets: it’s actually the ideal place where you can lose yourself on its surface and also find it in its depth.

Dilkhush Special School in Mumbai

by Kaho @ Chuzai ☆ Living

DILKHUSH SPECIAL SCHOOL Dilkhush Special School is a school for children with intellectual challenges and special needs age from 6 to 18. The school was opened by the sisters of Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1971. It is located in Juhu, Mumbai near the Juhu Beach. Dilkhush Special School is the very first and only school existed in Mumbai for the children with special needs at the time of its opening. The first time I learned about Dilkhush was through my Japanese friends because the school and the church have fostered a relationship with a Japanese community in Mumbai for some time. I believe that this relationship started because of a Japanese sister, Keiko, also known as Sister Asunta in her church community. Sister Keiko was one of the sisters who helped make Dilkhush Special School. If you would like to know more about the school, please […]

Modern Rustic Indian Design Home

Modern Rustic Indian Design Home This modern rustic Indian design home was the last home that I got to shoot before leaving Mumbai, India in June, 2016. This gorgeous home belongs to my American friend, Anne and her family, that I had a chance to know in my last year. The photo shoot took place about a month before my departure. I wanted to edit and post these photos on my blog sooner, but the big move took over my life. Then the transitional stage between Mumbai and my current home in Northern Virginia totally dominated my time. I am very excited to be able to present Anne’s home finally on my blog. It has been in my mind for too long. I met Anne shortly after having returned to the school year in 2015 after our second summer break in Mumbai. I remember spotting her because I liked the […]

10 awesome things to do in Melbourne

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

There are so many things to do in Melbourne it would literally take days to write a single article. So instead I’m going to choose 10 of the best that I believe you should do if you ever visit my home town. Melbourne has now won ‘The World’s Most Liveable City’ award, presented annually by The Economist, five years in a row. That’s an incredible achievement by anyone’s standards, but it’s easy to see why. No matter what you’re into there’s something for you to do, like dining in first-class restaurants, attending a wide range of sporting events in world-class stadiums, taking in a play or musical in gorgeous theatres, or experiencing masterpieces in our amazing arts precinct. There is of course just one problem with Melbourne, it’s expensive. There’s no escaping it, you’ll need a little money in your pocket to fully appreciate this city. But by using services like Couchsurfing, the free inner city trams, and free events that can be found at That’s Melbourne, you can definitely have a great time without breaking the bank. You could also do a free walking tour when you first arrive so you can work out where everything is and get [...]

Vietnam Visa On Arrival – everything you need to know

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The whole idea of a Vietnam Visa On Arrival approval letter seems a little strange to me. Having to apply and send money to a website you don’t know is legit, to get emailed an approval letter that must be presented at your arrival airports Visa On Arrival office (with more money) before you get your visa is a real leap of faith, especially for the inexperienced traveller. Given Vietnam was the first country we went to when we left Australia, we were about as inexperienced as you can get. But this is the process we went through and it worked out perfectly. What is a Vietnam Visa On Arrival As the name suggests, a Vietnam Visa On Arrival is simply when you’re issued with your visa when you arrive by plane, as opposed to organising it before you leave your country. You can go through your local Vietnamese embassy to ensure you have a visa before you leave your country if you prefer, but it’s more expensive, you’ll need to send your passport away and it takes more time. The bonus is you can just walk through customs on arrival without having to head to the Visa On Arrival office, [...]
