Edinburgh: Motel One- Princes Street

Finally, I found myself back in lovely Edinburgh after nearly two years thanks to Covid. The break certainly made me appreciate the UK and how I don’t want to ever be apart this long again. I can co with a lot of breakups, but not this one, please. Booking just a few days prior to…

Rosana- Cannes

Rosana is the “good vibes” restaurant of Cannes and is in the best way furthering its Bali vibe. The cheerful restaurant was done up in all kinds of kitchsy tropicalia in the best way.

The Golden Pass train dropped me at Saanen where I was met by (a pre-arranged) red-suspender-clad member of the Huus Hotel Team. He quickly drove me the ten minutes up the mountain in a Huus branded Land Rover and deposited me straight to a velvety couch, coffee in hand. I felt very taken care of…
