Catalonia beyond Barcelona: where gastronomy meets art

•••
Before visiting the South of Catalonia, my knowledge of this Spanish region was limited to Barcelona. I never knew a that the popular Spanish breakfast pan con tomate (bread with tomato) originated from here, or that it’s a land rich in carob trees but most importantly that it is a place four world-class artists have in common: architect Antoni Gaudí, painte[...]

Picture Perfect Wine Country... in Portugal

•••
I like wine. Not in a “Why yes, monsieur, if I spit this out of my mouth, I get a lingering sensation of toasted chamomile and tree bark” kind of way. But I enjoy a nice glass of wine. When I was in the US, I liked visiting local vineyards (shoutout to Big Cork Vineyards for making miracles happen in Maryland! YES, Maryland!) and I even made my way to Napa t[...]

Fall in Love with this Glampsite Just an Hour from London!

•••
As a Londoner, I’m always looking for excuses to get out of the city (temporarily, of course) on a cheeky weekender. For some time now, I’ve been trying to find an appropriate glamping experience that’s feasible from London. While there are a few options for glamping within easy reach of London, almost none offer decent transport links due to the obvious[...]

City Girls vs. Nature: a dose of olde English charm in the Cotswolds

•••
The neurotic nature of England’s spring weather means Easter is often a washout - but not this year. While fishermen with bulging tackle boxes caught trains out to the coast, I hightailed it to the ‘burbs. I was joining Girls on Travel - a tour group that connects solo ladies on guided trips, and this one was out to the Cotswolds. Also known as the epice[...]

Austria is know for mostly three things - Vienna, Salzburg and the Alps. But there is so much more to discover! I'd like to tell you about an easy weekend getaway from Vienna that brings you to the Austrian-Hungarian border. The region around Lake Neusiedl is as far away from the high peaks of the Alps as possible, and is one of Austria's flattest, driest an[...]

From the romantic architecture of Paris, to the beautiful beaches of the Riviera, or the fabulous food & wine of Bordeaux, France has a cultural vibe that can suit even the harshest critic's taste. But what if you could have it ALL in one region of France? We'll let you in on a li[...]

Exploring Texel Island: The Ultimate Cycle Trip through the Dutch Countryside

•••
Texel Island is probably the most diverse and beautiful place I've ever seen in the Netherlands - and still very much undiscovered by a lot of people. After spending a weekend on Texel Island  I completely fell in love with it. It's the perfect place for a weekend of cycling and discovering the Netherlands off the beaten track. This is how you get the most o[...]

9 Reasons To Visit the Araucania Region of Chile

•••
I love Santiago, but after a few days hopping between Independence Day Fondas, I was ready to see what else Chile had to offer. The thing with Santiago is that you can always see mountains. They sit strategically on the horizon of the city, towering above any of the tall buildings and creating perfect sunset visions which you can't help but pause and admire.[...]
