The Urban Grocer Contributor

By The Urban Grocer in Cool Travel on Friday 13 May 2011

Colorful and patterned fabric chandeliers nonchalantly hang from the ceiling, giving the whole space a bright, welcoming playfulness. This is matched brilliantly with a kaleidoscope of multi-colored chairs and dazzling prints, not to mention floor to ceiling windows with views overlooking the sparkling Indian Ocean.

By Zolton in New Events on Thursday 6 March 2008

We’re big fans of the work of American illustrator, Amy Sol.

We asked her what she was expecting to find on her first visit to the country: ‘I’ve always wanted to visit. I loved to look at National Geographic articles about Australia when I was growing up and always hoped to actually visit someday. I don’t have any expectations at this point. I’m just looking forward to seeing the cities, maybe some wildlife, and perhaps meeting some cool people’.
