Packing Guide - City Break

Over packing is the easiest thing to do. Whether you’re traveling the world with a loved one, taking a city break with the girls or you’re in need of a one night get away, some of us find it almost impossible to pack the right items and the right quantity. I am also very guilty of this, which is why an easy packing list can be the most useful thing when picking out what to take!  To help you pack accordingly next time you jet off, I’ve put together a guide of objects and luggage you won’t regret taking on your next city break travels. Suitcase: yes or no?Depending on the duration of your trip, think sensibly. For a couple...

How To Better Your Flight Experience

The feeling of getting on an aeroplane can affect people in so many different ways. Some love it (like Lee Coren!), the feeling that a vacation is just a flight away, some (myself included, Gemma here!) are not fans of being 38,000 ft in the air and some aren’t even phased by it. From experience, I’m certain that your experience depends purely on how you allow yourself to feel. For years I’ve been told the fear is all in my head and as I’ve grown up I’ve realized it is, which doesn’t mean I’m not still worried to fly but when I’m organized and have everything for my journey in a bag next to me, I begin to feel slightly...

Wadi Rum, Jordan

Wadi Rum (Arabic: Sand Valley), also known as The Valley of the Moon, is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan. Lonely Planet sums the experience accurately: "Wadi Rum is everything you’d expect of a quintessential desert: it is extreme in summer heat and winter cold; it is violent and moody as the sun slices through chiseled siqs (canyons) at dawn or melts the division between rock and sand at dusk; it is exacting on the Bedouin who live in it and vengeful on those who ignore its dangers. For most visitors, on half- or full-day trips from Aqaba or Petra, Wadi Rum offers one of the easiest and safest glimpses of the desert in...

Beach Vacay! What do you need?

Escaping to a sandy, clear watered beach is the best feeling. Whether you’re going for a week or two, some things are entirely necessary and not worth leaving behind. Here's a short Q&A with our summer-loving, travel-happy Gemma: Q: Beach bag? A: Get yourself a nice tote bag that you can fit all your beach bits into but is also strong and sturdy enough to carry at least 2 litres of water (hydration is key)! Q: But what if sand gets into my tote? A: Getting sand into your belongings is SO annoying, as if you don’t find it in places you didn’t think sand could reach, you find it covering your belongings. You need to buy a smaller bag...

Introducing: The Guardian Print

I'll be the first to admit, I never really paid much attention to brick buildings. Maybe because they were foreign to my eyes as we don't have them in Israel, or simply because of how massive they are. But last September I felt a rush of comfort wash over me as one of them caught my eye. Here's why. Looking at this building, the image of the floating protector extracting from the wall, I felt watched over in a big city. This feeling inspired the Guardian print. I hope it will accompany you through many happy adventures, in the city and beyond.

Why I Love Greece

A photo story by yours truly, of our amazing 10 days in Greece last year (Not in the photos but dear in our hearts: our intimate wedding ceramony in Heraklion). Between the old city, the nightlife areas, the beaches and the mountains, inspiration was just waiting to be harvested. A year and half later, these images have bloomed into our newest collection. Why do I love Greece? The answer is really easy, inspiration is all around. left: Athenes, right: Elounda, CreteElounda, CreteAgiou Nikolaou, Crete Chania, Crete The White Mountains or Lefka Ori, West Crete
