The Colour of Travel – Join us on a painter’s palette journey of shades of Italy, Morocco, Greece and Hong Kong. From the bright orange accents of Italy’s Amalfi Coast to the signature blues of the Greek Islands, we share our images, packing inspirations and a few travel tips for your colourful journey.
ITALY – shades of orange
The Amalfi Coast is an explosion of bright colour and electric atmosphere during the Italian summer. Orange umbrellas and loungers dot the beaches and (orange) aperol spritz is mandatory for sunset cocktails.
Our favourite place: One Fire Beach – the only place on the Amalfi Coast to watch the beautiful orange-hued sunset. They make the perfect aperol spritz too!
Our favourite restaurant: Il Pirata – your pre- or post sunset destination for an al fresco meal of freshly caught local seafood.

GREECE – shades of blue
From the impossibly blue sky to the aqua waters of the Mediterranean, the Greek Islands’ palette of blues are a photographer’s dream.
Our favourite beach: The blue waters of Myrtos beach, Kefalonia are so clear and blue you can see your shadow on the sea bed.
Our favourite hotel: Katikies in Oia, Santorini is a boutique haven of sophisticated tranquility.
MOROCCO – shades of saffron
The colour of travel is never more evident than in the medinas of Morocco. Spicy shades of saffron complimented by the most amazing textures wherever you look.
