[Weekend Takeover] A two-hour ride out of London, brought me to the iconic Stonehenge. Walking around the structure is pretty breath-taking. Right outside the visitor centre, you can explore Neolithic houses for a glimpse of life 4,500 years ago, then finish off with a tour of the Stonehenge Exhibition. Half a day well spent! – Amelia, #Citadines guest⠀

[Weekend Takeover] Ever heard of Nikkei cuisine (or Japanese-Peruvian fusion)? If you're game to try, @ChottoMatteSoho is the place to go. The groundfloor is a swanky bar, while the restaurant upstairs is sleek and lively with poised staff strutting across black marble floors. I'd recommend their Bento Box, simply because you get a taste of everything (the ceviche was my fave)! – Amelia, #Citadines guest⠀

[Weekend Takeover] Got a head start in the morning to make it in time for the Changing the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Tip: be earlier than you normally would, for a good view of the ceremony, because experiencing the ceremony up close amidst the bustling atmosphere sure is a treat! – Amelia, #Citadines guest

This year, make it your resolution to take interesting #TravelPhotos! @Gadventures advises you first set the scene, then zoom in on the details. Capture portraits instead of selfies and when at iconic places like #Berlin's #Fernsehturm, shoot from lesser-known angles. ⠀
