Welcome to our new travel blog!

I live in London. My girlfriend lives in Istanbul and Milan. We do a lot of traveling. Often, I find myself searching for ‘The best places for X in [city]’, and there’s not a whole lot of information, especially about Istanbul, which is a huge city that you need to know well to understand the best places to eat, drink and see live music (there will be a lot of that).

There’s London up above, looking all moody by Waterloo bridge with the Eye and South Bank on the left. London and Istanbul are two of the world’s biggest cities, and it’s hard to know what to do and where to go there. Hopefully we will be able to give you some advice.

So this is going to be a blog for local places you might not find in guidebooks, reviews of live music and venues, travel advice and hopefully more things that you’ll find it hard to find on other travel sites. Enjoy!
