About This Blog: Lamb411

LAMB411 is a blog devoted to design inspired travel.

What does “Design Inspired Travel” mean??  In my opinion, it is the ultimate way to experience a city when traveling.  It’s a somewhat abstract concept but it essentially boils down to ditching the traditional guidebook and keeping your eyes open for areas known for design.  My philosophy is that if you can find an area with a design store, design boutique hotel, design cafe, or cluster of galleries, you’re bound to stumble across other cool things.

About Lamb (the person/blog author)

Lamb411 is a nickname that I have.  It’s half of my last name plus a reference to the North American information directory “411” because some people think I am a walking “Yellow Pages.”  I am part globetrotter, part writer, part researcher, part hunter of things and all foodie.  I get a thrill out of locating city gems which often lead to terrific and memorable travel experiences and taste-testing as I go. I have been known to walk several kilometers for the best cup of tea, piece of chocolate, grocery store, bowl of muesli or slice of pizza (my husband can attest to the walking!)
