San Francisco TOP 3

As Finnair starts non-stop flights from Helsinki to San Francisco, it’s a great reason for me to go there for a little getaway holiday. It’s also one of my favorite cities to visit in the US but until now, it has felt a bit too distant to visit regularly. The new straight flights starting on

After a 30-minute bus ride, we step onto a large pier to board a riverboat rocking gently on the faint waves of the Li River. The temperature is above thirty and the air feels heavy, as it almost always does here in Southeast China. There were thick clouds gathered in the skies above Guilin, but

New York state of mind
