How I Overcame my Snake Phobia at Aro-ha NZ

EARTH, STAY, Vegan

I hate snakes. I hate them so much that when I was 38, I learnt to surf, jumped out of a plane (Point Break style) and crossed the Gobi desert with just one can of coke. Ok I might be exaggerating about the can of coke. Despite my feats that year, I couldn’t eat one of those jelly snake lollies. (Although I did eat a squirm – no big jelly head.) So when I land in Queenstown, New Zealand where the scariest thing is a hungry bird called a kea, snakes are nowhere in my thoughts. That is until I meet Adam at Aro-ha.

Meditation with Monkeys at Bagus Jati, Bali

Adventure, EARTH, Inspiration, STAY

High up in the misty forests of central Bali, far from the crowded cities with their bright lights and traffic snarls, is the tiny village of Jati — just a handful of houses amid rice terraces and market gardens on a small road that leads, eventually, to Mount Batur.

Château Dauzac Margaux: The Only Vegan Grand Cru Vineyard in Bordeaux

EARTH, Inspiration, SHOP, Vegan

If you’ve heard of wine, you’ve heard of Bordeaux. Celebrated as one of the world’s best wine regions, Bordeaux is a wine lovers’ paradise. The viticulture in Bordeaux is an art form steeped in tradition. A vineyard taking a more modern approach (or a far more ancient one, depending on your perspective), is Château Dauzac, fifth Grand Cru Classé of Margaux. Château Dauzac is 100% certified vegan. And the only vegan Grand Cru Classé in Bordeaux.

Hotel Adlon Kempinski

Inspiration, Lifestyle, SHOP, STAY

Luxury knows no bounds when it comes to the Hotel Adlon Kempinski. The original Hotel Adlon built in 1907, was one of the most famous luxury hotel across Europe. Despite large portions of the hotel being destroyed in 1945, the Hotel Adlon has remained strong through its redevelopment and reopening as the Hotel Adlon Kempinski, in 1997. Situated just two minutes’ walk from Brandenburg Gate, the hotel offers its guests elegance and glamour.

Tailor-Made Luxury at Schlosshotel Berlin by Patrick Hellmann

Lifestyle, SHOP, STAY, Travel

After being in Berlin for a few days, I find myself needing to retreat from the city’s bustling and wild centre. Whether it’s the jet lag finally catching up with me or the knowledge I’ll soon be surrounded more by nature than people, I feel a sleepy smile creep across my face as the bus bumps along*. Thanking the driver, who seems surprised by the interaction (I’m sure my German isn’t that bad…), I leave the bus behind. A short walk along the house-lined streets, my suitcase following diligently behind me, and the Schlosshotel Berlin by Patrick Hellmann comes into view. I have found my oasis.

*I have terrible sense of direction so I prefer to take transport and walk to help get my bearings. Guests with a better sense of direction than I, can organise a limousine transfer, luxury van or book an experience with the Rolls-Royce Ghost, all with a chauffeur.

A Night at the Moulin Rouge

CITY, Inspiration, Lifestyle, SHOP

The iconic red windmill on the corner of boulevard de Clichy and place Blanche in Montmartre has housed the secrets of Paris for 130 years. Painters, writers, and artists have been inspired for generations by all that goes on inside the walls of the Moulin Rouge theatre. A night at the Moulin Rouge is more than a great cabaret show, it’s a night to remember.

The Hotel Zoo Berlin

Lifestyle, SHOP, STAY, Travel

Blink and you might miss it. I look out the window of my taxi as we slow to a stop. The driver points toward a small entrance nestled between Hugo Boss and an Apple Store. He says, “es ist da”, which I manage to understand despite my limited (or rather non-existent) German. I walk toward the entrance of the Hotel Zoo Berlin, suitcase in tow.
