Almaty, Kazakhstan : The Sights

No, we didn’t see Borat. In fact, when I brought this up to our guide whilst walking through the beautiful First Presidents Park, she told me that the people of Kazakhstan are not so fond of him (to put it nicely). The movie was not even filmed in Kazakhstan! So, how was Almaty? Did we […]

I got a little confused when researching on where to stay in Brasov. After a lot of reading up of reviews, we finally settled on Kronwell. It looked modern, clean, there was parking, and I was running out of time – we had to agree on somewhere. We ended up staying for 3 nights here, […]

FOMO at its highest level (I haven’t been on a proper holiday for a very-long-time…. moan, moan, moan), we started browsing through the many apps and promos to see what we could possible use. Isme popped up. Thought we’ll […]

Our weekend away @ Al Qasr with a baby

First “holiday” away from our apartment last weekend. Social media has been driving me a little nuts lately with photos of everyone on their summer holiday (insert sulk face) .
