4 Must-Do's in Margaret River


Margaret River is a small town location in the South West of Western Australia, about 300 kilometres south of Perth. “Margs”, as the locals call it, is known for legendary surfing, breathtaking wineries, and magical nature views. The annual Margaret River Wine Regional Festival is a wine and food lovers paradise, and brings in thousands of tourists and locals each year. I spent four days driving along Margaret River and I must admit that it turned out to be of my favorite trips of 2017!

Stunning scenery, great food and wine, friendly people and breath-taking nature. What else do you need?

Here are 4 dreamy tips to include in your trip to Margaret River!



Spending your first days on the farms in the Margaret River is an amazing experience for all the nature lovers out there! I highly suggest sleeping at the Fair Harvest Organic Farm, either in the gyspy truck or the Bohemian tents. The farm aims to inspire people to grow their own produce and learn how to live a more sustainable life. You can have a walk in the fruit and vegetable orchard, shower under the stars in a really wild and natural “compost shower”, have lunch in the garden eating super fresh organic products, and much more. The location is also perfect since it’s less than 10 minutes’ drive from the ocean!


Another farm that is perfect for a delicious breakfast or lunch is the Berry Farm. On the way to this farm you will have the chance to do a chocolate tasting at Temper Temper and visit the Yahava Koffee Work, both located in Rosa Brook Road in Margaret River town.



Margaret River is famous for their wineries, and it rivals the likings of Italy, France, and Napa! There are hundreds of delectable wineries from Yallingup to Augusta and everybody can find a delectable wine to sip on while relaxing in the sun.


Here are four wineries that I can safely say will amaze you:

  1. Vasse Felix is a perfect place for an afternoon lunch and wine tasting and is open from 10am to 5pm. They do a daily winery tour at 3pm that gives you the opportunity to tour the vineyard and talk with a sommelier!
  2. The chardonnay selection at Cullen Wines is absolutely delectable.
  3. Wise Wine is famous for being the only winery in the Margaret River region with ocean views and is open for lunch and two rounds of wine tasting a day (9.30 and 5.30).
  4. Palmer Wines has won over 50 national and international awards for their stellar wines. The winery in Dunsborough is also one of the few wineries that is open also for dinner! Their alfresco dining and italian foods make for an amazing end to a wine tour in the Margaret River.


Even though every beach in this area is wonderful, my advice to you is to make sure to stop at least at these four:

Smith’s Beach in Yallingup: Enjoy white sand and blue ocean, and if you’re lucky you’ll have the chance to swim with dolphins! Swimming with these majestic creatures was a once in a lifetime experience, and much better in the ocean compared to in a pool!


Surfers Point in Prevelly: This surfers paradise is close to the Margaret River Mouth. Here you can surf, windsurf, or simply enjoy the beach and the Australian vibes! According to the day and time, you’ll find two trucks selling either coffee, the Combi Coffee or fish and chips, Hooked Up. Grab a snack and enjoy one of the best sunset you can have in Western Australia!


Gnarabup Beach is a perfect place to swim in the blue ocean and have breakfast/lunch at the White Elephant Beach Café. Another cosy bar there that is better for dinner is The Common.

Hamelin Bay, near Karridale, is the best place to go if you want to see the stingrays surface close to shore!



The two famous lighthouse are located at the opposite capes of the Margaret River. The Cape Naturaliste in the north part of the town and about 13 minutes’ drive from Dunsborough. My favorite was the Cape Leeuwin in the South, only about 10 minutes’ drive from Augusta!


Enjoy!! And let me know your feedback once back :) 

Byron Bay - My Favourite Spots


Hi guys! It has been a while since I posted my last article on the blog! I’ve been super busy with yoga classes, travelling and working! But I’m still here and I will soon share with you a few new exciting projects I’m working on!
Meanwhile, I wanted to give you tips and inspirations for your next holiday telling you about my recent trip to Byron Bay!

I fell in love with Australia the first time I visited this amazing country and it keeps on charming me every time more.

Here I’ve selected for you my favorite spots in Byron Bay, from delicious cafes where to indulge in super tasty dishes, to fantastic yoga studios where to reconnect with yourself and create positive energy! Enjoy :-) 


Cool and hipster spot where to relax for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Definitely my favourite in the city centre! Highly recommended: Coconut quinoa porridge, smashed avocado toast and beef/kernel/beetroot salad!

Next to Bayleaf Café, Mediterranean restaurant open for both lunch and dinner.

Great spot on the beach where to grab a coffee or enjoy a Sunday breakfast.

Beautiful café with ocean view. Great location and atmosphere.

Easy and tasty spot for a quick lunch or take away! Yummy poke bowls with fresh raw fish. Vegetarian options available.

Grab your coffee/tea/organic smoothie or enjoy a delicious vegan lunch! Tasty raw options included in the menu!

Something different… The Farm!

The Farm, this is for sure my favourite spot outside the city centre! A real bucolic paradise where to lose yourself… Animals, plants, one restaurant serving tempting fresh food, a colourful florist, a dedicated space for workshops and much more…


Byron Fresh

Great food, vibrant atmosphere and perfect location for a dinner in town.


Book a table on the balcony facing the street and enjoy the atmosphere with a glass of wine!

Sunday Market

Every 1st Sunday of the month don’t miss this super cool market in Byron Bay! Clothes, food stalls, jewelry, furniture, souvenirs and live bands performing from 8am to 3pm: Byron Bay Community Market.


If you’re lucky to be in Byron Bay when Fee is teaching, go for that!

Sydney's Best Brunch Spots

Brunch is a quintessential activity in Sydney. New cafés are continually opening, so choosing where to go can sometimes be a challenge.
Be ready to queue for a table (especially during weekends) and eat some of the most Instagram-able dishes that will make you happy to have left your bed!
The following are some of my favorite spots - all a cut above the rest!


Celsius Coffee Co.

Kirribilli Wharf, 1/2 Holbrook Ave, Kirribilli NSW 2061

Kirribilli Wharf, 1/2 Holbrook Ave, Kirribilli NSW 2061

The compact Celsius café perched on Kirribilli's wharf has a menu that may have you wanting to cross the oceans for (literally, Sydney Harbour). It’s a tiny wooden kiosk on the water, close to the ferry stop. Benedict eggs, coconut chia pudding, avocado toast, waffles, coffee, cold pressed juices…all with a million dollar view.

Celsius is open 7 days for breakfast and lunch! Enjoy!

7A, 2 Huntley St, Alexandria NSW

7A, 2 Huntley St, Alexandria NSW

The Grounds is a brunch destination in Sydney you can’t miss!

Located in an old refurbished pie factory from the 1990s, this massive flagship space looks like a venue straight out of some fairy-tale. It hosts a grand café, a restaurant, a patisserie, a bakery and many lovely outdoor green corners full of flowers.
There’s even a small petting zoo for the kids, featuring chickens, sheep and pigs.

Offering a fresh and rustic menu, the Grounds of Alexandria reinvents classics to deliver the perfect combination of flavours. It is the kind of place you come to brunch, chill and hang out for a while. A real pleasure for both the eyes and taste buds!

Enjoy!! :) 

4 Must Do's in Munnar


1. Trekking Munnar is a real paradise for nature lovers and it's a perfect place to do many trekking tours! I personally fell in love with the bright green tea plantations. I strongly suggest that you explore the area close to Lakshmi Hills. In fact, you can walk nearly 10 km reaching an elevation of 1472m all while enjoying the view of Anamudi's peak, the highest mountain in the South of India. Along the path you'll have the chance to see tea and spices plantations (pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, cocoa, nutmeg...) and meet the tea workers.

Augustine (+91 9497678473) is a super nice guy who works as a guide in Munnar area and can organize among other things, amazing trekking tours, overnight camping, and jeep excursions! Feel free to drop my name if you decide to contact him :-)


2. Waterfalls

There are a couple of scenic waterfalls in the area. My favorite is located at Athirappally, on the way from Kochi to Munnar. In order to reach this specific spot, you’ll have to leave your car in the parking area, pay a small entrance fee, and then walk around 10 minutes.


3. Tea museum and shopping

Even though I highly recommend you to sleep in one of the hotels/tents/resorts outside Munnar, I think that the main village is certainly worthy of visiting, even for just a few hours. Some of the main attractions include, visiting the tea museum, buying some spices and tea in the adjacent shop, treating yourself to some typical handcrafted chocolate,  purchasing a saree to really plunge into Indian culture. Generally, most shops in this area will sell two types of sarees, the traditional Kerala style that is white with embroideries or the classic pan-indian style (many colors either silk or cotton).


4. Ayurvedic treatment or Abhyangam massage 

After a long and intense day, pamper yourself with a (deep tissue) massage or Ayurvedic treatment! The Fog Resort has a nice SPA which offers many treatments that suite every kind of need! What I've found super interesting is the Shirodhara, also known as the "brain massage", done pouring hot oil drops on the forehead...you can’t miss it.

ENJOY!! :-)

Chiang Mai - Elephant Tour


Durante i miei viaggi mi è capitato di avere esperienze contrastanti con i tour organizzati dalle agenzie locali. Alcune volte si sono rivelati troppo turistici (come nel caso del tour su Chiang Rai), altre volte sono state esperienze fantastiche. Di questa seconda categoria fa parte un'escursione che vi consiglio assolutamente! Io amo gli animali e la natura e questa mezza giornata è stata davvero emozionante.Si tratta della visita al Baanchang Elephant Paradise ("baan" vuol dire casa e "chang" elefante), vicino a Pae. Ho comprato il tour su questo sitoe devo dire che è valso tutti i 3200 bath! Per mezza giornata ti prendi cura di un elefante, gli dai da mangiare, fai una passeggiata di un'oretta nella giungla, lo spazzoli e fai il bagno con lui...! ho sempre adorato Dumbo fin da quando ero piccola quindi per me ̬ stato qualcosa di fantastico! :-) So che in internet si trovano altre escursioni con gli elefanti più economiche, ma non ti permettono di cavalcarlo e prevedono "show" di questi poveri animali in stile circo, che tristezza...! Secondo me sono da evitare!

I'm not so fond of the travel agencies in general, sometimes their tours are really too touristy (as in the case of the tour of Chiang Rai), but sometimes they made me experience really beautiful and touching moments! Of the latter category is a trip that I highly recommend! I love animals and nature, and this half-day in the Baanchang Elephant Paradise ( "baan" means house and "chang" elephant), close to Pae, was really awesome. I've bought the tour on this web site and I must say it was worth all the 3200 baht! For half a day you are caring for an elephant, feed him, have a ride in the jungle, brush him and even swim with him ...! I've always loved Dumbo since I was small so for me it was a dream come true! :-) I know that online you can find many other tours that are cheaper, but they're not worth it since you cannot ride them and you have to assist to sad "shows" of these poor animals as if they were at the circus! Just avoid them!

Yoga in Bali


If you're coming to Bali and want to practice yoga, you'll find plenty of studios and yoga schools but not all are worth it! As you know there are many types of yoga so you should choose the studio and the class according to your habits and experience. If you're a beginner my suggestion is to try as much as different classes possible in order to understand what better suites you! :-)

Here follows the list of my top 3 spots where to do yoga in Bali.


The Yoga Barn is definitely my favorite yoga spot in Ubud! It includes a yoga studio, an holistic healing retreat center, a Guest House (I've spent there 3 nights and it's really nice and cozy) and the Garden Kafe (click here for more details) with a fabulous healthy menu stocked by their own organic on-site farm. You can join more than 10 daily yoga classes from Classical Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Power, Pranayama, Restorative, Iyengar, Yin & Anusara and have the possibility to attend specific workshops (my Acroyoga workshop has been really intense and addictive!)






Located in Canggu (north Kuta region in southwest Bali) Desa Seni is an amazing structure that offers beautiful wooden homes, an Holistic and Spa center, Yoga classes and much more! The property is surrounded by rice paddies that lend a quiet, serene vibe. The only sounds you will hear is of frogs, crickets, geckos, and a Balinese flute in the evenings. The wide schedule of yoga includes classes from beginners to more advanced level, private lessons and events. Desa Seni is a living art community bolstered by a holistic attention to details.





A wide schedule for all types of practices and a nice setting in bamboo cottages. Sometimes you will even hear the waves crushing down at the beach next by when doing your Shavasana. The structure includes also a nice guesthouse as well as the Alkaline Restaurant which is a great place to relax after your yoga session with a juice and a raw energy bar. Have a look at the class schedule here. Acroyoga classes available as well!








Amazing spot where you can do yoga every day at 9.30am (except from Friday) and also eat amazing food while chilling in the garden!

Namaste :-)

Ubud - Eating Veg/Raw


Ubud is the paradise for those who like eating vegan, vegetarian or raw. Plenty of healthy bars, unconventional restaurants and nice spots where to buy organic food and have a fresh juice. Below the list of my favorites!


Caf̩, Shop & Home Delivery Quiet and peaceful location, organic and homemade products, wide menu with some raw options.

Jl Jembawan #1 Ubud, Mas, Gianyar 80571 Bali, Indonesia





Raw food caf̬ and Taoist tonic bar. Highly recommended the veggie burrito and zucchini lasagna! Great variety of tasty chocolate balls too!

Jalan Gootama #2 Ubud, Kec. Gianyar Bali, Indonesia







100% raw vegan caf̬ in a super nice location. There is a 4-meter salad bar where you can create your own and many tasty desserts! Everything is prepared fresh in the kitchen and is free from refined sugar, flour, dairy, wheat & chemical additives.

Jalan Penestanan Klod Ubud, 80571 Bali, Indonesia??








Caf̩, Market & Cinema Organic vegetarian and vegan cuisine together with a small market where you can buy organic products. In the same building there is the cinema Paradiso which is open every night!

Jl. Goutama Sel. Kabupaten Gianyar Bali, Indonesia 1






Not only vegan in this cozy bar in the center of Ubud! The menu includes Indonesian options as well as some more western dishes. Highly recommended the Balinese curry!

Jl. Hanoman #38 Ubud Bali, Indonesia




4 5



The Garden Kafe is part of the The Yoga Barn, which includes a yoga school and a guesthouse. I stayed there for 3 nights and I had the chance to enjoy a wonderful breakfast every morning. Most of the products come from their own organic garden! The menu includes raw foods (tacos, lasagne??_), raw desserts (the chocolate mousse and carrot cake are superb!), vegetarian options, fresh juices, smoothies and even a special menu for Ayurvedic rejuvenation. It is open for breakfast and lunch from 8am to 6pm.

Jalan Raya Pengosekan Ubud 80571 Bali, Indonesia

Chiang Mai - The City


Chiang Mai ̬ una cittadina al nord della Thailandia, ottima come base per varie escursioni. Partendo da Bangkok si può raggiungere in bus (circa 10 ore), in treno (circa 13 ore) oppure con un'ora di volo interno e ci sono moltissime compagnie che operano questo volo fra cui Bangkok Airways, Thai Airways e Air Asia. Io ho optato per un volo interno della Bangkok Airways. Il tragitto in treno ̬ sconsigliato per via della pessima manutenzione dei treni e per la durata eterna. Tuttavia, se non avete i giorni contati potete optare per il bus e godervi i paesaggi che si attraversano. Chiang Mai is located in the north of Thailand and it's a perfect destination for those who want to do some tours and excursions in the natural surroundings of the city. Coming from Bangkok you can reach Chiang Mai by bus (about 10 hours), by train (about 13 hours) or by plane (1 hour) and there are many airlines that provide this flight including Bangkok Airways, Thai Airways and Air Asia. I choose Bangkok Airways. The train is not recommended due to the poor maintenance of the trains and length of the journey. However, if you have time, you can take the bus and enjoy the natural scenery on the way.


Il centro storico di Chiang Mai è circondato da una sorta di muraglia e ci sono 4 porte di accesso. Potete prendere l'hotel sia all'interno che nelle vicinanze di una delle porte e la zona che vi consiglio di più è quella circostante alla porta orientale di Tha Pae Gate. A pochi minuti da Tha Pae si trovano infatti il night bazaar e gli altri mercati di cui vi parlerò in un articolo a parte!

The old town of Chiang Mai is surrounded by an ancient wall with four doors. You can take the hotel either inside or close to one of one of the doors. What I recommend the most is the area around the eastern gate of Tha Pae Gate. A few minutes from Tha Pae there is the night bazaar and other markets which I'll talk in an another article!


Nel centro storico ci sono vari templi buddisti come il Wat Chedi Luang e il Wat Phra Singh, entrambi situati lungo la via principale Ratchadamnoen Rd, che di domenica diventa sede del famoso "Sunday market". In questa via troverete molti bar e ristoranti, alcuni più turistici altri meno. Per una colazione fantastica o per una pausa pomeridiana lontano dalle vie principali vi consiglio Angels' Secrets, un posticino delizioso non lontano da Tha Pae Gate!

In the old town there are several Buddhist temples such as Wat Chedi Luang and Wat Phra Singh, both located along the main street Ratchadamnoen Rd, that on Sunday becomes the venue of the famous "Sunday market". In this street you'll find many bars and restaurants, some more touristy than others. For a great breakfast or an afternoon break away from the main roads I highly recommend Angels' Secrets, a delightful little cafè not far from Tha Pae Gate!







8 A Chiang Mai non manca di certo la vita notturna e avrete l'imbarazzo della scelta per quanto riguarda pub e bar, oppure potrete optare per assistere ad un incontro di muay thai o boxe! Ci sono infatti molte scuole di queste discipline e la sera spesso ci sono allenamenti o gare. Lo stadio migliore in cui vederli è "Thapae Boxing Stadium", in Moonmuang Road, nei pressi di Tha Phae Gate.

In Chiang Mai you'll find also many options regarding the nightlife and you'll be spoiled for choice concerning pubs and bars. You can also see a match of muay thai or boxing! There are in fact many muay thai schools that do training sessions or competitions in the evening. The best place where you see them is "Thapae Boxing Stadium", in Moonmuang Road, near Tha Phae Gate.

Il menù ha confermato la mia prima impressione: piatti sfiziosi, salutari, sandwich particolari e drink originali! Anche i vegetariani saranno accontentati e appagati con piatti come la My Awesome Vegetarian Salad. Ingredienti come avocado, cranberry, chorizo, fois gras, granchio, salmone affumicato, brie e noci abbondano sia nei gustosi sandwich che negli altri piatti. Un consiglio per quanto riguarda i drink analcolici ̬ la Awesome Drinkable Idea, ovvero acqua di cocco con bacche di Goji, semi di Chia e scaglie di cocco, servita nel bulbo di vetro (simbolo del ristorante) che puoi portare a casa come oggetto di design.

The menu confirmed my first impression: delicious dishes, healthy options, special sandwiches and original drinks! Even vegetarians will be satisfied choosing for example the My Awesome Vegetarian Salad. Fresh ingredients like avocado, cranberry, chorizo, foie gras, crab, smoked salmon, brie and walnut abound both in salads and in tasty sandwiches. Concerning drinks, an alcohol-free recommendation is the Awesome Drinkable Idea, consisting of coconut water with Goji berries, Chia seeds and coconut flakes, served in the light bulb (symbol of the restaurant) that you can take home as a design object.

Questo caffè bohemien con la sua atmosfera da epoca industriale mi ha fatto sentire nel West Village di New York per un paio d'ore. Prezzi contenuti per essere a Singapore e zona super centrale. Se passate da Singapore fate un salto al 202 di Telok Ayer e ne uscirete soddisfatti!

This bohemian cafè with its vintage industrial vibe made me feel in NY West Village for a couple of hours. Affordable prices considering that we're in Singapore and super central location. If you're planning to visit Singapore pop into 202 Telok Ayer and you will come out satisfied!
