Cracking the Art of a French Picnic in Provence

•••
I was convinced to move to France by my British francophile man. Always a foodie, I fell in love with Europe during my fine art studies in Florence, where I also gained considerable weight... Although I miss my native Montréal, now that I’ve gotten used to the food culture - thank goodness I’ve found a whole nation with my same obsession - wandering the mark[...]

Chiang Mai: Thailand's Rose of the North

•••
Here at Travelettes, our love for Thailand is undying and forever more. Sorry to sound pretty gushy about that country, but it’s definitely a fav of ours. Sure, there’s Bangkok with Khao San Road and its never-ending bustling fun; sure, there’s the sandy partying of the southern islands; but how about some northern culture in the serene and stunning city of [...]

Culinary Istanbul

•••
Pasta and pizza come from Italy, tapas and 'queso' are the highlights of Spain, lamb and tzatziki make your meal in Greece. It is always the same - I travel to a southern European country, and all I can think about is the delicious food. Obviously, a trip to Turkey is no exception. Istanbul is a culinary paradise, but you have to know your way around. Here's[...]

There is always something happening in Camden. One of my hands down, favorite locations to shop, wander and people-watch; the centre of the alternative fashion scene is a wonderland of fascinating sights, smells and sounds.

Marrakech - Entering the Fairytale

•••
  The first time i visited Marrakech I was 15. At the time my family and I were staying at a sprawling resort in Agadir, along the Atlantic coast and one day we decided to do the 3-hour road trip to see the Moroccan metropolis. I don't remember much, other than the intense August heat that numbed all my senses. To this day those 5 hours have burnt themselve[...]

Brooklyn's best flea markets

•••
If you're a regular reader of Travelettes you'll know that we're great lovers of markets across the world (other articles here, here and here) so naturally, when I was in New York and offered the opportunity of a bit of shopping flea market style I was out the door as quicker than my heels could carry me (no literally, I changed into flats so I could get to [...]

How to Bargain with Grace in Southeast Asia

•••
Everyone who has ever backpacked through Southeast Asia knows the best shopping is not at stores but at the prolific markets. They are indoor, outdoor, and even floating. And to make it even better the price of basically everything can be haggled over. Embroidered purses, hand painted parasols, kitchenware, knock-off designer jeans, tuk-tuk rides, surfing le[...]
