My day started with commuters at the Flying Coffee Bean, Brighton station.

Followed by a pilgrimage to Waterstones specifically to sniff books, drink coffee and sketch out of that window.

Can you believe someone had already nicked the table. What’s more, he was ‘reading’* of all thing. Outrageous!

*I very much approve of reading, just not in my seat.

Even in the endless deluge of monsoon season, the ancient town, and UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hoi An is awash with colour.

When I visited this time last year, we spent the days wading through puddles, wandering through the lantern filled shops and of course, getting measured at the tailors.

It’s common for Hoi An to suffer flooding, but that week, the waters of the Thu Bon river stayed safely between the river banks, just teetering on the verge of overflowing.

The only way to drip dry, was to consume huge amounts of strong, smoky, sugar-rich Vietnamese coffee in the various Hoi An Roastery’s scattered around the town.

An avant-garde moment at the cubist, Grand Cafe Orient, Prague.

The cafe is on the second floor of the House at the Black Madonna. Originally built as a department store, it now hosts two gorgeous cafe’s, the Czech Cubism exhibition and the most stunning staircase.
