Ciao Milano! How To Do Milan in 24 Hours

June 22, 2016

Stay at Palazzo Parigi, dine beside the Duomo of Milan at Obicà Mozzarella Bar and Terrazza Aperol, shop for Valentino and at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, take in art & culture at Fondazione Prada, eat at Il Salumaio and Bar Luce, then party at Bar Martini by Dolce & Gabbana AND Cavalli Club.
Ciao, darling! Have you got a minute, or rather 1400 minutes to spare in Milan? Si? Molto bene! With the summer sun shining upon us, 'tis the season for European city breaks: be it a Baltic tour of Riga-Helsinki-Tallinn or London-Paris-Rome or Amsterdam-Berlin-Lisbon; pick n' mix, make it your own. Take advantage of the continent's proximity (and homogenous currency) yet incredibly diverse culture by embarking on what I call the 'Euro Express' - the perfect 'short but sweet' holidays for the eager beaver on a time-budget. I've written Brussels Express and Edinburgh Express city guides, and now it's time for How To Do Milan in 24 Hours
Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines...

Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016

June 19, 2016

A date in Mayfair, London: The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016 Blogger's Evening, dinner and drinks at The Wolseley and Sake No Hana.


A BLOCKBUSTER DATE NIGHT IN MAYFAIR THAT STARTED AT 

Call me the Alexander Petrovsky of date night. And before any of you shake your fists at me with cries of Team Aidan! or Team Big! (Team Berger? No? Darn right, he was a real wet towel), hear this Sex And The City-binge-watching-sister out. So maybe I'm neither composing 'Ick!'-inducing love songs on my grand piano* nor waltzing in couture** at the local Maccy D's, but if you want me to show you a good time you gotta get your art on (and get to grips with chopsticks - you'll see why in a bit). And as far as London art exhibitions go, it doesn't get bigger than the annual Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Every year, this world-class institution of art hosts its legendary open-submission summer show, with an eye-watering exhibit of over a thousand works within the Palladian-mansion walls of Burlington House. Because either you go big or you go home. Jack Berger, I'm talking to you...
