    20 Foods You Either Hate or Love!

    There are many more acquired tastes and foods that either have crowds flocking to it or running for the hills from it! Though after trying each of the 20 on the list, I'll confidently say, without disclosing my biases, that you'll either love or hate 'em!

    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.

    Whitstable, Kent

    Whitstable is a hidden seaside gem of Kent, a county also called "England's gardens". Whitstable is my discovery of the year. It only 1 hour drive away from London (well, apart from some weekends when Blackwall tunnel is closed), or an hour and a half by train from Victoria station (£24 for any time day return ticket).

    Whitstable Oyster Festival

    A great reason to visit Kent's seaside in case you haven't been there before. For a lot of people, it’s hard to imagine that there is the possibility of a beautiful seaside life in England. Well they are wrong, because there is such a thing!

    Wepler Restaurant, Paris

    Great wines and oysters in the darkest part of Paris. We were recommended to go to Wepler by some Parisian gallerist that I know. She assured me it was the best place for fish. Queues at the door upon our arrival suggested a gem, and that couldn't have been farther from the truth.

    Mersea Island

    For oyster lovers as well as nature enthusiasts, the only way to go is Essex! Mersea Island is the most easterly inhabited island in the UK. It is in Essex county, only 65 miles away from London, so perfect for a city break even just for 1 day.

    Wright Brothers Soho

    Oysters today, oysters everyday! Do you like oysters as much as I do? Good news! No need to go to Whitstable or Scotland, the only way is Soho! I used to go to Wright Brothers Oyster Bar at Borough Market from time to time, but I didn't know they had a spot in Soho as well, until my gourmet friend took me there to have a quick oyster+Guiness anti-hangover fix.Yummy!
