A look behind the scenes of one of Europe's finest design hostels: Welcome to King Kong Hostel Rotterdam!
Less than hour from London and with a clear view of the French coast, welcome to the South East Coast of England. If you yet to visit this part of the world, have a look at the vlog of my trip to Broadstairs, Deal and Dover.
Right on the doorstep of London I experienced a slice of Victorian nostalgia: quaint cobbled streets and timber framed houses, dreamy white cliffs and magical lighthouses, hidden sandy beaches to fabulous, great value for money fine dining-so much to discover here. Hope you enjoy the vlog of the trip. If you are inspired, South Eastern Trains are offering summer advance return off peak fares of just £10.

The best hostels are always about community. They stand for an ideal, for people and make you see the world differently. The Beehive, Rome is one of those rare hostels. The owners Steve and Linda love to welcome people from all over the world. They will show you a side of Rome rarely seen by tourists. They invite local chefs into their kitchen to create wonderful apertivo evenings for guests which also draw in locals too. Plus they organise a bunch of events like storytelling evenings and also local artisan markets in their garden. A true oasis of peace and love in the heart of Rome.
Big thanks to Terminal 7 for the video and Hostelworld for supporting the Luxury Hostels project.

Greetings friends from Tegel Airport. End of an epic 11 day roadtrip across Germany where I had the chance to discover some of the country's amazing street art scene. Truth be told, 10 days wasn't not enough. Could easily spend a few weeks, months to see everything. I've met some amazing people and visited some beautiful places. Berlin and Leipzig was amazing. Teufelsberg in Berlin was a massive personal highlight. I leave with some images and videos from these last few days. If you enjoy street art and want to know more about the scene do checkout the #StreetArtGermany on FB, Twitter and Instagram for stories from the trip. Last not not least huge thank you to Visit Germany for supporting this project. Bye for now!
Great few days in Bremen and Hamburg. Really impressed with the streetart scene in Hamburg, especially Push's styrocuts. Bremen is always a joy to go back to and I was in luck to time my visit during their annual Freimarkt which celebrates an epic 981 years in existence. Enjoy the latest #streetartgermany highlights. Thanks again to Visit Germany Bremen Erleben
Morning! Have you been to Cologne and explored Ehrenfeld district? Wow. This district is so interesting and packed with tons of amazing streetart. Yesterday had the pleasure of @artist.christianboehmer showing me and the #streetartgermany gang the incredibly rich and diverse street art scene of Cologne's Ehrenfeld. Pieces of Roa, Herakut plus some great graffiti art. Do leave yourself a few hours to explore all the art here.
Day 4 of #streetartgermany tour took us to the haunting UNESCO world heritage site of Volikingler Hutte, a former ironworks site. Had the pleasure of meeting Frank Kramer who is the curator of the annual Urban Art Biennale. Saw amazing pieces from renowned artists like M.Chat, Eric Lacan, Amar Abo Bakr & Tarek Benaoum. Then the tour rolled onto Frankfurt where in the company of local street artist, Il-Jin we saw a great piece from Brazilian artist Nunca , Herakut's 'beautiful There is something better than perfection' & then checked out their Hall of Fame. Day 5: We're heading to Cologne now!! 👉Follow #streetartgermany for all the action as it happens
