Visiting Vietnam - 10 things you might not know yet

•••
A few weeks ago I was one lucky Travelette to be invited to Northern Vietnam by Enchanting Travels and Vietnam Airlines. Traveling from buzzing Hanoi to the dreamy region of Sapa and lush Mai Chau our itinerary augured to be as diverse as this beautiful country itself and surely lived up to its promises. Never having visited before I was beyond excite[...]

Top 10 Tips for Vegan Travel

•••
I've traveled abroad ever since I finished high school, but I've only been a vegan for about half a year now. Yet, I realised that traveling with a dietary requirement is quite different from traveling with an omni diet. It is harder at times, but certainly not impossible - sometimes even surprisingly easy and delicious! From the incredible vegan fare I f[...]

5 Ways the Lake District took me by Surprise

•••
My favorite trips are always the ones that take me by surprise. A weekend in the Lake District of North West England was one such trip. The Lake District had never really been on my radar. I had heard about it, of course - everyone from Cornwall to Aberdeen knows about the Lake District. It is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK. It's f[...]

How A Food Tour can be the Key to Understanding a Culture

•••
For some people food is a mere means to fill their bellies in order to keep going on with their busy sightseeing schedules. Or maybe they have a list of recommended budget/vegan/gourmet restaurants to work within which all you do is order, eat and pay. But if I have changed anything about my way of travel in the recent years, it's my attitude towards food. Y[...]

Exploring Slow Food in Carinthia, Austria

•••
Are you a foodie? Do you know where your food comes from? I went on a trip to Carinthia to learn more about slow food and how to incorporate a healthy relationship with food into my busy daily routine (that usually doesn't leave a lot of time for hours and hours of cooking). Now this has been my second trip to Carinthia in just three months and I've been [...]

The Sicilian Speciality that is Worth a Journey

•••
When thinking about Sicily, drop the Mafia and take the arancini instead: these golden orbs of deep fried rice exemplify Sicilian street food. But that hasn’t stopped Sicilians from debating the tradition's history, name and recipe. Some scholars trace their origins to St. Lucy’s day, celebrated on December 13th, when citizens ate rice to commemorate a grain[...]

5 Reasons You Should Visit Slovenia NOW

•••
Slovenia may be one of the newer countries on the block (after all, it only gaining its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991), yet this hasn’t stopped the place from rising up to become one of coolest places in central Europe. Guide books keep naming Slovenia Europe’s hidden gem, which means it isn’t going to remain “hidden” for too much longer. Here’s five [...]

The best wine tasting in Finger Lakes Wine Country

•••
It's noon on a Saturday and I am celebrating happy hour somewhere as I languidly sip on a Pinot Noir and take in the view around me. My surroundings are reminiscent of that old Windows screen saver; you know the one with the rolling green hills, fluffy clouds and idyllic sky. It's funny how coming from New York City I seem to find this perfect vista unnatura[...]

Culture on a plate: A taste of the World

•••
Why do you travel? Beaches, culture, sights, wildlife, full moon parties, languages? The options are endless and come in various order of priority for most of us. For some the priority is local food. Places like Italy, Mexico, Vietnam, and of course Thailand come to mind, which are (in)famous for their food and the fact you usually come home with teary eyes,[...]
