48 hours in Atlanta

We only had 48 hours in a city we knew nothing about. It could have been daunting and/or an epic waste of time, but – lucky for us – our super cool Atlanta local expert was on call, ready to take us to their favourite places in the city. What impressed us the most was how…

Ultimate Singapore Eating

It’s no secret that Singapore is a foodie paradise. Here, eating – and eating well – is more than just sustenance; it’s a time-honoured national pastime. I’ve been to the city so many times that it’s almost a second home, and there’s basically two things I like to do when here: eat and shop.

Unexpected New Orleans

If there’s one thing we learned from our long weekend in New Orleans, it’s that you never know what’s going to happen in this sultry and enchanting city. You never know where you’re going to end up – no two days or nights are the same. Which is strange because New Orleans is one of…

Austin is,…

Texas Cowboy-Style: Ranch Life Rebooted

GuidePal spent weeks travelling around Texas where we encountered all kinds of amazing things (snakes, too, lots of snakes) and incredible places (more to come on this – stay tuned), but one highlight had to be our stay at the Inn at Dos Brisas, which offers a quintessential Texas ranch experience – with a heavy…
