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[...]

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[...]

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 [...]

Vegan in Paris: A City Guide

•••
I went vegan a few months ago for numerous reasons and people often ask me whether it's hard. My standard answer usually includes something like, 'it's easy when you cook yourself', or 'you've got to change the way you think', or 'there are so many amazing vegan restaurants in my home town Glasgow'. But there is one aspect of my life, when I admit, it gets t[...]

Top 10 things to do in Gstaad

•••
I will admit that until I actually visited I had not thought of Gstaad in Switzerland as a place for anyone but people with large bank accounts. Somehow I pictured it with old ladies wearing expensive furs and ageing gentlemen smoking cigars. Mind you, I couldn't have been more wrong. I found Gstaad to be a lovely mountain destination which is beautiful year[...]

A Foodie Guide to York, England

•••
York may be a city best known for its crumbling walls and exquisite Minster but those who know it a little better know it for its food too. For a city of its size, it’s punching well above its weight for choice of independent restaurants, cafes and bars. York is a must stop on your UK itinerary, whether you are into chocolate, sweeties, English ales or Yo[...]

The Travelettes Guide to a weekend in Stellenbosch, South Africa

•••
You've probably heard by now that South Africa is one of those must-do's on everybody's to-do list, when it comes to amazing destinations. We love it for the weather, the people, the stunning nature, the food... the list really is endless. While all corners of the country have spectacular places to visit, it is no coincidence that most visitors flock to Cape[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Quito

•••
When in doubt about where to begin when travelling South America, always go for the underdog. Quito might not be as famous for nightlife and music as Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires; it is not as well-known a UNESCO Heritage Site as Cusco in the Peruvian Andes or as infamous among beach-lovers like Cartagena. It is an underdog, yes, but it was also selected a[...]

5 cool things to do in Edinburgh

•••
I'm a Glasgow girl through and through - after two years of living here, people can certainly pick that up from my accent, and I love it. They might even be able to pick it up from my behaviour, as a friend of mine put it very adequately after the police had been called to our hotel on a recent trip, because I was chatting to loudly with my balcony neighbour[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Tel Aviv

•••
Sand dunes, camels and oriental markets, or glassy high risers, cats and crazy nightlife - what is your idea of Tel Aviv? Mine was probably a little bit of both. Having met Israelis before, I knew Tel Aviv was a city that never sleeps. I knew it was by the seaside and surrounded by desert. I knew it was considerably secular and welcoming. I had heard about t[...]
