    Where to eat in Basel, Switzerland

    On a short trip, one of the hardest aspects for us whilst travelling is finding the best places to eat and drink – but in Basel, this simply isn’t a problem. With over 20 restaurants that have won GaultMillau or Michelin awards within the compact city boundaries, visitors on a city break are simply spoilt for choice.

    Where to eat and drink in Basel Switzerland Adventures of a London Kiwi

    Disclaimer: My hotel and some of my meals were covered by the Basel Tourism board but my (very many) thoughts and enthusiasm are only ever genuinely mine and mine alone.

    And that’s without the possibility of taking a quick trip to France or Germany into consideration – something that I very much took advantage of and managed to slip 3 meals in 3 different countries. But that’s for another blog post…

    7 Reasons Why You Should Visit Basel, Switzerland

    Cozying up with France and Germany, the corner of Switzerland that Basel nestles into is unique even within the valleys of Europe. Running along the Rhine river bed, the three countries meet in the middle of river eddies – only the fish swim the exact point – but the effect that the 3 nations have on this city is remarkable.

    Disclaimer: My trip to Basel was kindly supported by the Basel Tourism board but my (very many) thoughts, nautical cliches and enthusiasm are only ever genuinely mine and mine alone.

    Many people (including a lot of friends) use Basel as a starting point for the glorious train journeys, but they miss discovering a city well worth wandering and spending a leisurely long weekend in.

    Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019 – a throwback to the year that was.

    First and foremost my blog is a journal. An online journal that has become a treasure box of memories, tips that I hope will be helpful and my online baby which has given me the impetus to learn a plethora of new skills. In that spirit, Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019! This little post is a throwback to the year that was.

    A throwback to the year that was Adventures of a London Kiwi

    I always spend the last post of the year (< because I’m a rule breaker in 2019 it seems) first few posts of the year looking back over the previous 365 days – I think it’s important to remember where we’ve come from, as much as we look forward to where we are going.

    2018 has been full of travel, adventures, bad hairstyles in photos and explorations.

    Travel wishlist 2019 Adventures of a London Kiwi

    My first couple of months were concentrated on building my business and scooting around London (fitting in a few bits of London sightseeing and restaurant visits) before we flew to Romania for a week to explore the Transylvanian castles and political history of Bucharest. I fitted in a cheeky solo beach break in Bournemouth in the middle of a busy project, I explored Basel in Switzerland solo (where in one day I managed 3 meals in 3 countries) and went on a group trip to Cologne, Germany

    The Best Hotel Breakfasts In The World (So Far)

    Like the brunch queen I am, I couldn’t help myself and put together a list of the best hotel breakfasts we have enjoyed so far around the world – they say “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper” and I can’t help but agree. These are all favourites for a myriad of reasons – and every single hotel that we stayed in and listed, has excellent coffee and was part of an adventure.

    The locations vary from Texas to Cornwall, from Budapest to Gibraltar but all have beautiful food, something special about them, and I would love to revisit every single one of them for retesting purposes.
