PotraitmediasmallThe idea of this unique website initially came from the avid traveller and globetrotter Malin Lundberg Müller as more and more friends asked her to recommend the best restaurants, hotels and bars in the cities where she has lived and spent a lot of time herself.

Malin with a background in law, LLM Stockholm University, LLM King’s College London started the entrepreneurial route by setting up the business that has grown from the website to also include Travel Apps for smartphones. Malin’s expertise on travelling has been published in a number of prestigious media around the world, Friday Magazine UAE, Resekoll Sweden, GoodLife UAE to name a few.
