Englischer Garten, München.

Englischer Garten, or what us tourists might call “English Garden”, is one of the largest urban parks in the world, sprawling over 3.7km of central Munich. Despite the name, there’s nothing particularly English about this place. Less the surfers attempting

Trip the Light. Berlin.

Northern lights, strobe lights, fairy lights; aren’t lights just the best? From the 10th to the 21st of October, you can see lights in all their illuminated glory in Berlin, Germany during the city’s annual “Festival of Lights” event. Taking the

Hobbit House. Boracay.

An Irish bar and restaurant staffed purely by midgets and dwarfs. Quite possibly the most ridiculous dining concept ever. On the one hand, it’s outrageously rude. Mockery times 100. A serious deformity ridiculed into a tourist attraction. From a lighter,

The Festival of Near Death Experiences, Spain.

So it’s September. A completely ridiculous time to be pumping out a blog post about a festival held annually in July. But given it’s in Spain, you may need 10 months to save enough money to get there. La Fiesta

PachaMama: A commune in Costa Rica.

“Commune” is a pretty big word. What with all its Jonestown massacre undertones and joint-biodegrading-in-dreadlock mythologies. But hit dictionary.com and you’ll find its true definition is not so bad. PachaMama, found in a valley on the northwest coast of Costa

Peats Ridge Festival: “All About the Vibe”.

Any minute now, our social media streams will be swamped with half naked hippies enjoying the liberating experience of a Burning Man festival. But don’t get jealous, there’s something just as joyful and experimental coming up over New Year’s Eve

Spotlight on Hampi

What: A small village with a strange rocky landscape. Where: Karnataka, a state in south west India. When: December / January. Or any time other than the stifling months of Summer. Why: It rocks a very strange Flintstones feel, with the large boulders that stretch

Adhan – for Everyone?

A recent study found that listening to the “Adhan”, or Islamic call to prayer, significantly improves psychological well-being. The study was conducted on a broad range of people, with varying religious beliefs and backgrounds, many of whom could not speak

Ms. G’s. Sydney, Australia.

 There’s nothing particularly fun about reading a menu that contains less than 3 words you can actually pronounce. Nor is it overly stimulating to try somewhere brand spanking, only to read the menu with a sense of de ja vu.
