Travels through Asia – dining in Kolkata

I had to visit the Michelin-starred Yauatcha in Kolkata’s high-end Quest Mall. Prices are around a third what you would pay at its twin/sister restaurant in London. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and still on the look-out wherever I go for the champagne/rose tea served there.

Seven work spots in Zadar for digital nomads

COIN For consistently high-speed wi-fi access, for those times when you just want to be around other professionals, for printers, lockers and for general modern suite working facilities, it has to be the co-working space COIN. Most if not all digital nomads will find themselves here as it’s the only co-working space in town (at the moment). It’s growing in reputation in Zadar and abroad. It also periodically hosts talks, workshops and social events such as a recent jazz evening. Because it is publically run, and especially targeted at the local community, prices are kept at reasonable rates. COIN Coworking…
