24 hours in Tallinn, Estonia

•••
Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is a small and quaint city that is stuffed full of brilliant restaurants, cafes, fashion and culture. If you haven't been to Estonia yet, you should seriously consider putting it on your hit list this year or at least duck into the capital's Old Town - even if you only have 24 hours in Tallinn. If you fly to the Baltic[...]

10 Essential Experiences in Ecuador

•••
With a total of twelve countries spread across the continent, spanning from the tropical Caribbean Sea to the rough ocean at the southernmost 'end of the world', loads of mountains, forests and deserts in-between, South America is an incredibly diverse place to visit, and choosing where to begin is hard. One of the continent's smallest and way too often over[...]

12 foods you should try in Israel

•••
If you ask random people what is the most important things on their holiday is, they might say, a cozy hotel, or some quiet time away from their work, but if you ask me, I'll say FOOD. I'm sure I'm not the only Travelette around here who will declare a fresh breakfast, mouth-watering lunch and delicious dinner the three top priorities of a successful travel [...]

A Travelette does Thessaloniki

•••
At least in Europe it seems that there is only one topic these days in the news: Greece and the country's economic crisis. Greece has also been on my mind in recent weeks albeit for entirely different reasons. Despite loving Mediterranean anything, I had never been to Greece until I got invited by Marketing Greece to join their Blogtrotters 2015 “Young at He[...]

10 minutes to paradise - a trip to Kurumba, Maldives

•••
A curious, open-minded, upbeat and outgoing child is a huge blessing. Mind you, it's also a huge challenge, particularly when said sweetheart gets so excited with the world that he finds it hard to part with it, particularly during nap times or at night. When they are as little as my Atlas they still need 2 naps a day, meaning I have to fight the sleep battl[...]

The Travelettes Guide to modern Marrakech

•••
I love Marrakech. So much in fact that I have written love letters to the city and have vowed to be there at least once a year to satisfy my cravings for this beautiful place. That wasn't always the case. The first time I went I actually really hated it: it seemed loud, obnoxious and was just pushing all my buttons in the wrong way. But as it sometimes goes [...]

6 Off-the-Beaten-Path Things to do in NYC this Summer

•••
On days like these I adore New York City - these balmy afternoons when walking through Greenwich Village feels like I've stumbled onto the movie set of every idyllic New York-based film I've watched growing up. I am sitting in Washington Square Park on the edge of that center fountain that seems to double as the town's watering hole where red-faced locals an[...]

The Sunday market in Bac Ha, Vietnam

•••
A weary bus ride up a windy road on a Saturday afternoon was finally close to its end, as we were creeping up into the small town of Bac Ha, Vietnam. It felt tiny and yet full of hotels - I certainly did not get any sense of character of its own. I wasn't sure whether I would have good time there. But once a new week started afresh on Sunday, the town cha[...]

A Vintage-Style British Afternoon Tea

•••
If someone who had never been to England were to make a montage of typically British experiences, I can just imagine what it might involve (cue a mish-mash of red phone booths, getting caught in the rain and bumping into the Queen, Kate and Will or David Beckham on your way to the shops). However, there are two stereotypes that maybe do hit a little close[...]

Berlin's best ice-cream parlors

•••
It is June, so summer is finally here - at least if you live in the northern hemisphere. It might not seem like summer has reached all of Europe yet; just yesterday I asked my flatmate if she wanted to turn the heating back on, and a few days ago I dug up the old winter boots to battle the rain - Glasgow, I love you anyways. But, I know deep down in my heart[...]
