Whistler, Canada

“Walking in a winter wonderland” is the phrase that jumped to mind at the time, and it still aptly summarises my memory of the place. I ventured up to Whistler from Vancouver – on a (supposedly) 1 hour bus that went through Squamish (a place I remember all too well – a 10 minute toilet…

Gili Trawangan

A tourist destination as popular as Gili Trawangan usually means one of two things: lots of incredible food (survival of the fittest and all that) and lots of tourist scams. Unsurprisingly we got both, despite our best efforts to avoid the latter. Fortunately, we stumbled onto some real crackers very early on, so we always…

Canggu

Canggu was our destination number one in Bali. An up and coming hipster’s paradise it was only appropriate that there were foodie spots to follow suit.

Major Sprout

Major Sprout (21 Graham Street, CBD) I actually stumbled across this place by accident, and boy am I glad that I did. I knew straightaway that it was going to be a good decision: their exotic smoothie menu, the mouth-watering plates of food zooming past, the efficient use of space, not to mention the queue…
