Chocolate, or ‘Schokolade’ in German is loved by everyone. So what about a museum that is both educational and interactive covering the process of chocolate making? One such place exists right here in Hamburg - Chocoversum.

Fischmarkt, Hamburg

Fischmarkt Hamburg
Never in my life have I set an alarm for 6.30am to attend a market. Nor have I ever set an alarm for 6.30am to attend a live music gig. Incredibly, on a Sunday of all days, this is a common theme across Hamburg.
Fierro hotel Buenos Aires
  Arriving at Ezeiza airport in the late evening, we needed to get to our hotel. No obvious buses or trains were anywhere to be seen so taxi really is your only option. Luckily a desk in the centre of...

La Marine

Paris is an expensive city, no question. Where can you enjoy a quality French meal without breaking the bank? Well, there is hope in the form of the Prixe-Fixe menu at La Marine beside the Canal St-Martin. Lunchtime in Paris is arguably the best time to enjoy a proper bistro...

Cafe Coco Tang, Nottingham

Cafe Coco Tang Vietnamese Nottingham
Vietnamese is a cuisine that has so far proved elusive. That is until we stepped foot inside a cafe hidden in the backstreets of Nottingham - Coco Tang.   This place comes in two parts. Entry from the Byard Lane way brings you into what appears to be a coffee shop....
Gelato Village, Leicester
The heatwave shows no sign of ending so to bring our temperatures down a bit, we headed to an ice cream parlour in the St Martin's area of Leicester city centre. Gelato Village came to Leicester in 2014 but it’s taken us until now to discover the place, better...

Ye Olde Bell Spa

Ye Olde Bell Spa
After a wonderful nights stay in the hotel, we checked out and headed the short distance over the courtyard to the spa. You can’t miss the spa - SPA in huge letters above the door is a slight giveaway, plus there’s an old bell outside, perhaps the original ‘Ye...
Dining at Ye Olde Bell
Our first night at Ye Olde Bell came with a three course meal in the St Leger Bistro-by-the-Bar. Usually, guests would dine in the 1650 restaurant but as this was a Sunday evening, the restaurant was closed. The bistro however provides the same menu as the restaurant and presumably...
L'Atelier 116, Strasbourg
Cake for breakfast? Well, we are on holiday. Many a Brit would opt for beer abroad but not us, we fancied something a little sweeter to kick off our day in Strasbourg. We arrived in the city around mid-morning and found ourselves, after a tram ride, in the middle...

iLatina, Buenos Aires

iLatina, Buenos Aires
Travelling to Buenos Aires opened up a whole new headache of which restaurant to start with. You see there’s so many good places in this city all themed around Spanish, Italian and traditional barbecue. Top of the pile in most people's reviews was a small place in the Villa...
