Hermes Mykonos Hotel

Hermes Mykonos Hotel

Elevated above Mykonos Town and with unrivalled views of the Aegean Sea is the luxurious Hermes Mykonos Hotel. Its brilliantly white and simplistic sugar cube exterior instantly draws you into its traditionally quant yet contemporary atmosphere. This hotel looks characteristically Mykonian from the outside, however, inside it harbors a luxurious and carefully formulated interior, designed [...]

Istanbul

Istanbul

One of my favourite places to visit is Turkey, in particular Istanbul. Having visited Istanbul a number of times in all seasons, each experience has been completely different. For me Istanbul has a mystical chaotic charm which I fell in love with the minute I first visited. There is a constant buzz due to the [...]
