Where is the best place you have travelled to so far in the world?

 

I'd probably say the Maldives, although I feel a little obvious saying it. I just haven't found a place where I've felt more relaxed and calm in my life. Whilst I also adore the mountains, the Maldives just blows me away every time! 

 

What makes this place special for you?

 

It's so calm and tranquil and the place for pure relaxation. But in all honesty, to be able to walk around in bare feet for an entire holiday is something that I have never experienced before. You can literally leave all of your shoes at home. It's blissful. 

 

 Do you have any insider tips on what to see and do while you're there?

 

So many people ask me whether I get bored whilst I'm there, and I couldn't disagree more with this idea. It's so calm and chilled and you really can do nothing all day if you really want to. But, there are often so many other things to do and see, depending on which resort you go to. Water sports, boat trips, spa days, cycling, golf, long beach walks, snorkelling and cookery classes are just some of the ways you can keep yourself busy. I have never been bored on an Island in the Maldives, it is just paradise! 

 

 Name the key fashion piece that you love to pack when you go to the Maldives. 

 

Well not shoes, that's for sure! I'd say either a gorgeous bikini or swimsuit, because that's all you will need to wear in the day. Or a beautiful mini evening dress for cocktails or date night drinks.

So Patricia, tell us where the best place you’ve travelled to in the world is, and what makes this place so special?


I travelled to Southeast Asia quite a bit when I was younger and visited some great places with great people. I've experienced some of the best parts (in my opinion) with friends having wild, unexpectedly fun adventures, but also returned as a married woman and loved it. It's a part of the world that holds lots of special memories for me.

 

Do you have any insider tips on what to see and do while you're there?


Plan ahead and visit as many places as you can, Thailand, Bali, Malaysia, Singapore are some of my personal faves. Talk to people and submerge in the culture, especially the food, so veg rich and delicious.

What’s your absolute favourite city in the world?


Florence is my favourite city in the world and as I studied art history it’s perfect for all the amazing paintings, sculpture and buildings around every corner. 

 

What makes this place special for you?

 

Definitely the art! There is an incredible sense of history throughout the city, and of course there are all the usual things that Italy is renowned for too- like amazing food and beautifully dressed people!

 

Do you have any insider tips on what to see and do while you're there?

 

My favourite building in the city is the Pazzi Chapel. It's a really quiet, contemplative space. If you like looking at Rothko, it's almost the architectural equivalent.  

 

Name the key fashion piece that you love to pack when you visit. 

 

My Balenciaga Bazar bag is perfect for Florence. It's lightweight but holds a lot, and can be worn on the shoulder or cross-body, or just on the arm. Plus it goes with everything.

What’s your absolute favourite city in the world?

 

My favourite place in the world is Cambodia. I did not know much at all about Cambodia and only found myself there because it was part of a South-East Asia tour that I had booked. I had no expectations and didn’t imagine that I would go there and leave with a different view on the world as a whole.

 

What makes this place special for you?

 

What made Cambodia so special for me is that it showed me that there was so much more than what I knew of the world. I went there simply for holiday and beaches but left with a hunger to learn more about the world around me and a realisation that there is so much more to life than what I knew. 

 

Do you have any insider tips on what to see and do while you're there?

 

Cambodia is a perfect mix of fun and seriousness! You can go there for its rich cultural heritage but you can also go for undisturbed beaches, partying and luxury resorts. That is why I love it so much! Watch the sun rise at Angkor Wat – this is a must. If you’re not squeamish and you’re feeling up for it, visit the Tuol Sleng Museum. Go on a cruise along the Mekong river and witness the floating villages and tribes of people who live entirely on the water- you might even spot a dolphin in the process. Visit Ta Prohm which is the temple where Tomb Raider was shot, try the amazing Cambodian cuisine especially the Fish Amok, swim with elephants, go to Sihanoukville for beautiful beaches and a vibrant nightlife, and go shopping at the night markets for unique pieces such as precious gems and stones and carved wooden items. 

 

Name the key fashion piece that you love to pack when you travel.

 

For Cambodia, I love packing easy light dresses with exciting prints to wander around on hot days. For super activity filled days such as biking around Phnom Penh, a t-shirt, shorts and trainers will do.

Where is the best place you have travelled to so far in the world?

 

I absolutely adore Greek Islands for summer getaways and Mykonos tops them all without a doubt. However, for an unusual city break I would definitely recommend Tallinn in Estonia. The old medieval town in the centre of the city is full of character and Tallinn’s colourful buildings are extra pretty in the fall against autumn leaves. Ideal blogger destination if you ask me.

 

What makes this place special for you?

 

I was born in Tallinn, so visiting it will always be special for me. Every time I go back, there’s always something new to see or explore, but things like my favourite food, parks and buildings will always evoke nostalgic memories of my childhood. 

 

Do you have any insider tips on what to see and do while you're there?

 

1. Spend a day in The Old Town exploring a bit of history whilst getting lost in cute little cobble stone lanes. Don’t worry, there are modern cafes and restaurants on every corner.

 

2. Take a Day Cruise to Helsinki, Finland. It takes around 45 minutes to get there by a ferry.

 

3. If you’re visiting in the summer then head to Pitita Beach and enjoy the white sand coast of the Baltic Sea.

 

There are plenty of museums, viewing points, cathedrals and parks to visit too. People really do get surprised how beautiful the city is when they visit Tallinn.

 

Name the key fashion piece that you love to pack when you visit. 

 

Summers are pretty warm in Tallinn but I do love it in the colder months too. Key piece for an autumn city break in Tallinn definitely has to be a warm long coat and a pair of comfortable but trendy boots like Chloe Susanna Ankle boots, both perfect for long walks.

Where is the best place you have travelled to so far in the world?

 

Ghana

 

What makes this place special for you?

 

 It was the first time I travelled to West Africa and I went with a group of my closest friends for a wedding but we also got to learn about Ghana and its history.

 


Do you have any insider tips on what to see and do while you're there?

 

Definitely go see Elmina castle as it plays an important role in Ghana's history. It's a two hour drive from Accra, the capital. Also try out lots of amazing food spots such as Bread & Wine which is a restaurant but has a bakery by the entrance of its gates. Our favourite place to eat was Coco Lounge and the hotel restaurant at Labadi beach resort. 

 

Name the key fashion piece that you love to pack when you visit.

 

If you go somewhere like Ghana, where it can get hot and at times humid, go for an off the shoulder dress, either in white or print. Get a nice pair of flat but stylish sandals or low heels which you can wear throughout the day and if you have your hair up and away from your face to keep cool then make sure to accessories with some bold earrings or necklace.

Where is the best place you have travelled to so far in the world?

 

I’m a huge sucker for New York, there’s just something about that city that has me wanting more. I’ve been infatuated with the place for as long as I can remember which has only intensified from my first visit when I was 18. 

 

What makes this place special for you?

 

It’s just a really vibrant and fun place in the world. I’m a city girl through and through so experiencing NYC, the place I’d always dreamed of visiting as a girl is out of this world. Plus the shopping is AWESOME!

 

Do you have any insider tips on what to see and do while you're there?

 

You simply must hit up all of the department stores, they’re like nowhere else in the world. I also LOVE Chelsea Market for independent retailers and the most delicious food. But nowhere has magic quite like Greenwich Village, the musical heritage speaks to me in ways that very few other places have before.

 

Name the key fashion piece that you love to pack when you visit.

 

Winter: Always a faux fur jacket and a comfy pair of ankle boots, NYC is freezing and I always like to see the city by foot.

 

Summer: A lightweight summer dress is my holiday essential, that, along with a cross body bag so hands are free for all that shopping.
