The Travelettes Quick Guide to Rome

•••
The last time I was in Rome I was a completely different person.

Our top 10 Travelette-y Glamping Destinations

Avoiding the 'Venice Effect': Off Season in Bergen, Norway

•••
I went to Bergen, Norway in the summertime this past year and I liked it well enough. But then I returned to Bergen this winter - and absolutely I loved it. It was colder, it was rainier and it was darker, but it was also better. I couldn't stop gushing afterwards about the city, its charm and all its gorgeousness.
