Is it just me or do time and travel never seem to get along? There’s never enough time while you’re away exploring new sights and sounds and when you get back it feels like a lifetime waiting until the next adventure can begin. Despite much technological advancement – of which time travel is not one – if you’ve ever precariously perched out of your hotel window to catch free Wi-Fi out of thin air and punched the words ‘what to do in’ while you’re away from home, then you’re doing it all wrong. Lose the generic travel guides and reviews and by all means get lost; just get lost in the right places. After accumulating a fair amount of mileage on my travels, wandering the streets with only my eyes, ears and sensibility, I’ve amassed an international cultural log of art and design must-sees that I’ve not known what to do with - until now...
I’m very excited to announce I have joined the correspondent team at lifestyle hub Melting Butter. Founded by fellow globetrotter Jenny Nguyen-Barron, Melting Butter is a traveler’s ultimate digital companion, offering a curated online guide from dawn to dusk for explorers in search of the most inspiring and aspiring hotspots in New York and around the world.
As the site’s new arts and culture correspondent I’ll be covering contemporary art and design staples from across the pond in London and the rest of the UK as well as across Europe. Catch up on my latest favourite hotspots including Tate Britain, Tate Modern and the Barbican Centre online now.
Follow Melting Butter as I work my way through my travel log of galleries and institutions throughout Europe to make time while you travel last that little bit longer.
