    To Russia with Love: Church of the Savior on Blood, St Petersburg

    One of the most beautiful cathedrals in Russia. Church of the Savior on Blood has a long and troubled history. One could say it is a miracle that we can still go to St Petersburg and enjoy seeing it.

    To Russia with Love: A Place Where 3 Bridges Meet

    A place for dreaming. This is one of my favorite places in St Petersburg - a place where 3 bridges meet, in the heart of the historic city center. It is close to all the major tourist attractions such as the Church of the Savior on Blood, Field of Mars, and many others, two of St Petersburg’s most beautiful canals meet and three bridges, which cross them come together in one.

    The Dock Kitchen: An Amazing Fusion of Food and Design in London

    The place where you can eat and marvel at the exquisite design jewels. I was always a big fan of Tom Dixon's designs. You might think you don't know who he is, but you have definitely seen his iconic lamps everywhere - those reflective balls in bronze and silver. So after I've done some "Googling", I discovered that there is a restaurant above his shop as well. I just had to check it out.

    Kirstenbosch - the biggest open-air botanical garden of all. I fell in love with this garden when I first came here back in 2004. So, when I arrived to Cape Town this year, I immediately wanted to go back. Although a few obstacles (in the shape of a vineyard visit and so on) almost prevented me from doing that, there I was, still back at Kirstenbosch!

    Brick Lane Coffee - as quirky as it gets. This is what their web site page says: "We're locally owned and have been getting your orders wrong since 1999. All our milk is organic and always has been (even before it was trendy). Our coffee is fair trade organic and sourced directly by us (we've visited growers in Papua New Guinea twice)". Now here's what I have to say about it.

    Dolphin Beach, the most unforgettable sunset in the entire world! There are many places for watching sunset in Cape Town: ever popular Camps Bay where you can watch the sun set while sipping Mojito, as well as enjoying champaign alfresco on the top of the Lion's Head mountain if you are into hiking. But arguably the most incredible of all is the sunset seen from the place called Dolphin Beach.

    Victoria and Alfred Hotel, Cape Town

    A hotel with the best ever view you could possibly ever wish for. While preparing for going to Cape Town, I obviously wanted to stay somewhere with a Table Mountain view. It is called such because of the clouds rolling across the top of the mountain, which looks like a table cloth. A lot of the hotels advertised "partial Table View", but in reality, you would have to hang out by the window with the possibility of a broken neck to see even a glimpse of this majestic mountain.

Bo-Kaap is an area of Cape Town, South Africa formerly known as the Malay Quarter. It is quintessentially a Township, situated on the slopes of Signal Hill above the city centre and is a historical centre of Cape Malay culture in Cape Town.

    Boulders Beach - the African penguins' paradise. Started in 1982 by Adam and Eve of the Penguins, it has grown to about 2200 in recent years. This is partly due to the reduction in commercial pelagic trawling in False Bay, which has increased the supply of pilchards and anchovy, that is so adored by the penguins. They like to eat squid as well. The African penguin is listed in the Red Data Book as an endangered specie.

It is situated between the Tuileries and the Champs-Elysées.
