REVIEW: Flores Restaurant – Chic Dining in Lisbon

REVIEW: Flores Restaurant – Chic Dining in Lisbon
Part of Lisbon’s first contemporary boutique hotel – Hotel Bairro Alto (map), Flores (Flowers) restaurant has managed to keep up the modern trendy-chic atmosphere. On the right corner of the hotel lobby, as you enter into Flores you also pierce into a secluded room away from Chiados fuss.

A superb combination of classic and modern...

Sydney Photo Friday: Mrs Macquarie’s Chair

With Valentine’s Day upon us tomorrow I thought I’d take a look at one of Sydney’s most romantic spots, Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. In 1810 New South Wales Governor Lachlan Macquarie got the convicts to carve this chair from sandstone rock for his wife Elizabeth. What a romantic gesture! Word is that she used to sit at this spot near Sydney Harbour and watch the English ships sail in. The views are still some of Sydney’s best! Image source: Steve Nova/Wikipedia Commons ...
