Kate Davis, DJ, Los Angeles

Los Angeles – a melting pot of art, culture, fashion, music and good vibes, it’s the kind of place where anything goes and everything is within reach. It also happens to be a city where vibes are hidden behind dark windows and inconspicuous buildings. Blink and you will miss the most sought after restaurant or club. Now, we would hate for you to visit the city of Angels and miss out on all the fun so we have found a local to help direct you in the right direction. And we’re not talking celebrity tour bus operator, no. We’re talking resident Nice Guy spinner, DJ Kate Davis.

A walking Levi’s ad packs for Europe…

What could be more exciting than packing for a little European rendezvous? Well, let me tell you, anything. Anything would be more exciting. When your wardrobe breakdown consists of 80% denim, 18% oversized coats and the other 2% belonging to a mint collection of overused tees and fashionably unpractical ensembles, the thought of packing a month’s worth of summer ensembles in a small suitcase can be likened to a root canal – just plain painful.

STAY

Ovolo Hotel, Darling Harbour

Sure travelling for work is fun, until the clinical feel of chain hotels starts to eat away at you soul. I mean how could you even begin to feel excited about visiting a new city when you will only be teased with a less than local experience. That is unless the Ovolo is concerned in which case you will feel like you are coming home to your very own luxurious apartment with all the necessities, and most importantly, round the clock coffee.

Ricardo Dias Ferreira, Altitude Restaurant

If there was ever a time to justify a dinner which could cover a weeks worth of rent on your entry level salary, well travelling would have to be it. I mean we justify everything else when romancing a new city after all. We liken it to the honeymoon phase of a new relationship. So what hot spot to hit while in Sydney? Well the restaurant with the million dollar view and menu to match would have to be it. So put on your Sunday best and get acquainted with our favourite hot spot to indulge in Sydney.

Naomi and Elena, Bali

Bali. The travel experience which can’t quite be explained in a neat little package. The “Island of the Gods” can be as much a spiritual and cultural experience, as it can be the place to let your hair down. A place where ‘RnR’ can be just as much about rest and relaxation as it can be about rock’n’roll baby! With so much to experience we asked locals and founders to ‘The Dose’, Naomi and Elena to talk us through doing Bali right.

Jean-Paul Hévin, Chocolatier Patissier – Paris

One simply doesn’t visit Paris without indulging in the heavenly, mouth watering, all-encompassing Jean-Paul Hévin chocolate experience. It is probably the closest thing you can get to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and trust us when we say, quit carbs and sugar for a month preceding your visit and make up for it on the day.
