Jet Set with Jas

I hope you had an amazing Christmas and had fun seeing in the New Year. It was actually a really special Christmas for me, as my Mum and Dad flew over from Australia to stay with us for the first time. I really wanted to make sure they experienced London for the awesome city that […]

Jet Set with Jas

In Europe, December can be pretty off the hook in the lead up to Christmas, with the magic of the first of the season’s snowfall, Advent, Saint Nicholas visiting early in the month and the famous Christmas Markets. My family and I, two Aussies living in Germany with our four-year-old daughter, decided to take things […]

Charmed by Lisboa
Jet Set with Jas

I’m going, to be honest; shamefully it never crossed my mind to go to Lisbon. There was no good reason for leaving it off my list, other than being distracted by more mainstream European tourist destinations I guess. I am, however, so pleased that I found myself there for work last week. Lisbon is a […]

24 Hours in Paris
Jet Set with Jas

I found myself in Paris for a brief 24 hours last week for work. It is easily one of my favourite European cities, and I am awestruck by its beauty every time I visit. With its wide tree-lined boulevards, its impressive melting pot of architecture (ranging from Gothic to postmodern), iconic sights (including the Eiffel […]
