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[...]

The World’s only Pizza Museum in Philadelphia

•••
If you had to find a home for the world’s first and only museum dedicated to all things pizza, you’d probably put it in New York City, home of the thin, triangular slices, or Chicago, where deep-dish pies rule. Maybe it’d be somewhere in Italy, where the art of pizza was perfected. But I bet you’d never think to put it in Philadelphia (even though tha[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Local NYC Eats

•••
In New York each week seems to bring on a new tidal wave of restaurants that fight to become the city’s best. Whether embracing the latest ‘farm-to-table’ trend, pushing the limits of molecular gastronomy or exploring the world of ‘urban foraging,’ New York restaurants, like its people, will make it anywhere if they can survive here. The following res[...]
