A weekend exploring the region of Brittany, France should be on your summer travel list. I am about to take you on the same road trip I recently went on in this ages old land -- rich with history, fresh food, and a fantastic future that's all packed into wonderful little journeys.

What to do when you've got hundreds of pairs of shoes, enough clothes to dress a small army, and your career demands that you move, oh on average, about every three years? And not just to another city, but an entirely foreign country.

My partner of almost five years and I are planning a wedding celebration in Italy. Not because I am chasing the aforementioned goal, and not because we want to be fancy, but because half the guest list is already there. So there's my Mario, who is, as you may have guessed, very Italian. For many, this will be a destination wedding and a chance to experience Italy. That said, the biggest challenge presents itself. With all the venue options under the Tuscan sun, how the heck does a girl choose?

I've been with an Italian for almost five years and I'm ashamed to admit my language skills are still tipping towards sub-par. His family, all based in the lovely Tuscan town of Piombino, speak no English at all and, while my ear has improved visit over visit, I imagined that I would be much further along by now.

In writing my guidebook on how to relocate abroad, I came across all sorts of statistics indicating that Melbourne was one of the top spots to make a big move. As luck would have it, my brothers gifted a mini-break in the city for my 40th birthday.

No doubt this Scandinavian city shines in the summer, but there are a myriad of reasons it merits a look between October and April. Turns out, when the temperatures drop outside, there's no lack of heat inside. In November, we decided to give it a full 24 hours.

With a relocation to Sweden fast approaching, my partner and I were looking forward to wrapping up work (and packing) and living like it was our last chance to experience the Czech Republic. Who knows if we'll ever be back, and after 16 months in Prague, we wanted to take advantage of a bit more of the country.

As a frequent flyer, and having relocated to two different countries in as many years, I am always hyper aware of where the important things are. Whether in transit or working at a local café, I am constantly checking that I am in possession of three things at all times - my smartphone, my wallet and my MacBook Air.

Since this year marks Singapore's 50th birthday, and since I love the idea of a layover in a cool city, I figured it was time to re-visit on my way back from New Zealand. Turns out, one can manage to do quite a lot in a very short amount of time.

Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, have all integrated the core principles of Feng Shui into urban planning. And so it goes that the cities naturally become more attractive to urban dwellers and investors. The latter being key to economic growth.

Sean Connolly is a hard one to catch these days the man does run four restaurants, after all. While hopping between his family home of Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand to manage things, he recently took a side trip to Queenstown and added star power to the SKYCITY Gibbston Wine & Food Festival.

Lean in because it is very important that you not get caught in any tourist traps that will sour your jam. In terms of euros, we found we consistently paid 30 each for a memorable meal (lunch or dinner) at mid-range restaurants. Glass of vino included.

From Florence to Elba Island, here are some new favourites discovered on my most recent trip to Tuscany.

Never fails. After every trip I get wind of some brand new smartphone app that would have made my life easier (or my suitcase lighter). Whether it's destination planning, sharing photos on-the-go, or allowing for a more fluid work flow, here are three amazing new apps you can use to improve life on the go.

From the Val di Cornia to Florence to Elba Island, here are a few delicious discoveries made on my most recent trip to Tuscany. Some spots do require a car, but if you are brave enough to do it all via Vespa, even better!

We make lists and check them twice, but all too often we leave the house feeling just a little unsettled. And then it hits us -- sometimes when we're taxiing to the airport, and sometimes not until we've reached the destination -- but the thing we can't believe we left behind is nowhere to be found.
