8 Exceedingly British Treats to Try in London

•••
As a Brit, I’m happy to admit that we are a nation of uninventive eaters. Besides the humble Yorkshire pudding, and adopting curry as our own, we have pretty much stayed off the world’s culinary map -and for good reason. Interestingly, we do have a lot of great restaurants and the food scene in London is amazing. But it revolves heavily around the food of ot[...]

7 Reasons to put Crete on your Travelmap

•••
Who doesn't think of whitewashed houses and blue windows to the backdrop of the even bluer ocean when they think of Greece? So did I for the longest time until I actually took my first trip to Greece and visited Thessaloniki and Halkidiki. There was nothing blue and white about either yet I still loved them both. So when I started to plan my Greek return I j[...]

Witnessing the Display of Fall Colors in Scotland

•••
Fall is one of my favourite times to travel around Scotland. The offseason is the perfect time for a road trip - not only are there fewer tourists on the road and everything becomes more affordable, but the landscape also presents itself from its best side! Two of the best regions in Scotland to witness the fiery display of fall colours are Perthshire and th[...]

Dark tourism: The Graveyard Tour at Highgate Cemetery, London

•••
It’s my first time in London during autumn for several years, and I’m pretty excited by the genuinely okay-ish weather the UK has been seeing so far.

Is El Raval Barcelona's coolest neighborhood?

•••
I was only 19 when I first went to Barcelona. And I didn't come as tourist. I arrived with just one suitcase and €270 cash in my pocket, ready to pay for my room in an apartment I would share with 4 other people from 4 different nations. That room was in a part of Barcelona called El Raval, making up one side of the infamous La Rambla, the Barrio Gotico's ug[...]

12 Hours in Brighton - A day trip from London

•••
I fell in love with the seaside of southern England on a trip to Southampton earlier this year and when my partner planned our vegan foodie getaway to London this autumn, I knew I wanted to return to the coast for a brief stint. And what better city is there, to go to on a day trip from London, than Brighton! And so we booked our tickets, made a list of s[...]

Magic Malta: Top 10 things to do in Malta

•••
Cast your eye beyond the Italian island of Sicily, just above the coast of North Africa, and you’ll find the archipelago of Malta. Plonked in the southernmost fringe of Europe, these little Mediterranean islands are surrounded by the bluest of waters, doused in the most golden sunlight and full to the brim of smooth local wine that’ll have you gasping for mo[...]

Hotels we love: Breathing Nordic air in Smucke Steed

•••
One of my long-term travel resolutions this year has been to reduce the amount of flights I take and explore my surroundings a little better. I wanted to get to know Germany's lesser known hideaways a little better and felt that two decades of escaping to faraway places left me clueless as to where a good old weekend on the countryside can be spent. Now Smuc[...]

7 Secret Bars & Restaurants In The UK

•••
There’s nothing like the thrill of finding delicious food and drink in an undiscovered place. So-called hidden or “secret” restaurants have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Many have taken inspiration from old illegal speakeasy’s erected in the 1880’s after the idea came overseas from New York. Nowadays, it’s a lot less illegal and a lot [...]
