ITALY | ROSÉ AWAY IN SIENA’S PIAZZA DEL CAMPO, TUSCANY.

Siena Piazza del Campo is the heart of Siena and the precise meeting point of the three hills on which Siena is built. The venue was the main gathering square for major political and social events, hence its iconic status in Tuscany.

This historically significant spot hosts the bi-annual Palio di Siena horse race. Picture James Bond in the Quantum of Solace! 

After sauntering through the cobbled alleyways of Siena, we love hanging around this exuberant Piazza to marvel at its architectural beauty. No wonder it is considered one of the most aesthetically pleasing squares in all of Europe’s renowned medieval squares. 

The perfect spot to Rosé away on warm summer days. Read more

A week ago, I joined a group of friends in a fun and exciting “mini adventure” exploring Masungi Georeserve. I call it a “mini adventure” because you don’t really need to be an experienced hiker to be able to conquer this hike, but if you’re scared of heights you might want to come prepared.

OCEAN HOUSE KILIFI, KENYA.

Last month, I went back to Kenya for two weeks. During this short time, I decided to drive down to the Coast Province for a weekend. It had been a while since I last visited the Kenyan coast. I had forgotten how gorgeous our white sandy beaches are, how magical our sunrises and sunsets, how turquoise blue the waters of the Indian Ocean are, and how warm the locals’ hospitality. Life is a pace slower and things are different compared to Nairobi’s hustle and bustle. Read more
