Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Hidden Gems | Share your Havens of Inspiration

posted by on 10/06/2014

Hidden Gems. One of the things we love most about London is if you deviate from your usual routes even for 5 minutes, you’re probably going to discover somewhere or something new. So when American Express told us about their latest campaign to highlight these locations around the capital, we were happy to jump on board as ambassadors. The campaign is all about uncovering hidden gems and championing inspirational spots that aren’t particularly celebrated, or better yet undiscovered- and then featuring them on an interactive map. So to kick things off, the Y&Y family have gathered theirs but we’re going to need your help to find even more. Check out some of our inspirational spots and how you can help us on the flipside.

Severndroog Castle  

“An eighteenth century gothic style castle in a woodland in the borough of Greenwich. The castle is hidden away on a hill, offering amazing views across London from the top. It provides a peaceful escape to gather your thoughts.”

Little Venice  

“Take a seat on a row of benches that run along the side of the canal under some trees. At dusk, the lights from the buildings nearby reflect off the water as you hear the chatter and footsteps of passersby. Chill out to some music, watch the boats, and people watch all evening.”

Royal Victoria Dock

“The dock holds lots of history and was the largest of its kind in the world when it was in use before WW2. Being by the water is a fine catalyst for thinking, reflecting and being at peace.”

Kyoto Garden

“Stroll, or take some time out to contemplate amongst the garden’s cascading waterfalls, colourful koi carp and wandering peacocks. The garden was designed to reflect a miniature idealised landscape thus being the perfect setting to escape the commotion of the city.”

Postman’s Park

If you know where to look, somewhere like Postman’s Park can be found. Sometimes we’re inspired by energy and action, other times we need to relax and reflect and this is a humbling quiet, shaded, spot in an ever moving city.”
