The flights of fancy here are all about blending in with the surrounding environment, to create a house from bamboo that feels at one with its setting, rather than imposed, like some castle, upon…Continue Reading “Bali in luxury sustainable style – Bamboo houses / Bali / Indonesia”

Laid-back luxury on Bali. Bali offers luxurious villas and adventurous tours to remote corners of the island.

Another favourite place of mine, landing on JFK makes me always happy, even when the Immigration torture sucks.

Hydra 2010. By Jens Hoffmann I love Greece. Arriving on this picturesque gem of an island is like stepping into a painting. The distinctive neo-classical stone mansions of Hydra Town rise above the picture-pretty port, where cafés and donkeys await their next expedition along cobbled lanes. Hydra is twice the size of neighbouring island “Spetses” but has an even smaller population of around 4,000 people. So nice to here on Hydra in the region Attica. The beautiful eco island with many claims to fame. Just…Continue Reading “Kalimera – Great days on Hydra – Hotel Miranda / Hydra / Greece”
