THE LATEST SCOOP ON ENCHANTING PLACES

A Guide to Delightful Bamberg: A Historic Wonderland of Beer and Grandeur

A scenic stroll and a sip of smoky beer was all it took to convince me. My friends, I think Bamberg, Germany might just be one of the most underrated cities I’ve ever visited. Studding the upper end of Franconia (in the north of the German state of Bavaria), Bamberg is a certified postcard trapped in […]

An Escape to the Eagle’s Nest: Hitler’s Secluded Mountain Retreat

For many World War II buffs, a visit to the Eagle’s Nest in Germany (or Kehlsteinahus in German) is not just a check off the bucket list, it’s the dream trip of a lifetime. Perched up in the clouds on the Kehlstein peak of Berchtesgaden National Park, this mysterious house, once a private meeting place for members of […]

31 Amazingly Unique Things to do in Germany (That You Can’t Do Anywhere Else!)

The amount of truly hilarious things to do in Germany is something that astounds me daily. Did you know, for instance, that Germany is home to world’s largest festivals dedicated to beer, wine, sailing, and pumpkins? Or that there’s a sausage-themed hotel where you can sleep under a sausage sky? Or amusement parks built on nuclear […]

The Most Beautiful Places in England for Your Bucket List (Besides London)

I think it’s time to admit the truth, guys… I’m beyond obsessed with England. After all, as a little girl growing up in Canada, my daily routine consisted of practicing Harry Potter spells, jamming out to the Beatles and dreaming of (one day) marrying into the royal family… And while I’ve grown older and wiser, (with […]

The 79 Best Things to do in Barcelona, Spain (& What to Skip)

When it comes to the best things to do in Barcelona, one’s mind usually flutters to thoughts of dazzling Gaudi architecture, fresh colourful markets, and (if you’re anything like me) a slow motion montage of tapas hoarding and cava showers… And while these are all indeed wonderful Barcelona activities to spoil yourself with, there’s a […]

How to Make Oktoberfest Table Reservations for Free: A Local’s Step by Step Guide

When it comes to getting table reservations at Oktoberfest, the amount of misinformation out there is hilariously unhelpful. The truth is, most articles will try to sell you on expensive packaged tours, or otherwise skimp out on important details like when and HOW you actually make these reservations for yourself. So, frustrated and tipsy (the […]

DELIGHTFUL, HIDDEN CORNERS OF THE WORLD

The Most Beautiful Places in England for Your Bucket List (Besides London)

I think it’s time to admit the truth, guys… I’m beyond obsessed with England. After all, as a little girl growing up in Canada, my daily routine consisted of practicing Harry Potter spells, jamming out to the Beatles and dreaming of (one day) marrying into the royal family… And while I’ve grown older and wiser, (with […]

A Guide to Delightful Rovereto, Italy

Visiting Rovereto, Italy last month confirmed to me a longstanding theory I’ve had about myself. Guys, I’m quite certain I was Italian in a past life. I mean, I talk a lot with my hands. I’m in a committed relationship with pasta. My patronus is probably a gelato cone…… you get the point.  But arriving […]

Alternative Things to do in Bruges: A Guide to Delightful Hidden Gems

There are many words I could use to describe Belgian city of Bruges: medieval, romantic, historical, incredwaffle, stupe-frying, you name it… However, secret would never be one. You see, the historic storybook beauty of this city has sent eager visitors here in droves, waddling through the beautiful street in search of all the postcard photo opps […]

QUIZ: Which Underrated Italian City Should You Venture to Next?

We all dream of eating gelato in Florence, exploring ruins in Rome and hiking through Cinque Terre, but what about those parts of Italy that are a little more off the beaten path? Luckily, if you dig deep enough, there are still plenty of amazing Italian treasures to be found… all without the accompanying crowds. […]

Discovering Sierra de Aracena: Spain’s Scenic Ham Capital

Like most intrepid travellers, I like to concern myself with the important questions when I travel. Questions like…. where can a girl get some life-changing ham? And for research’s sake (for all your sakes’ really), I took on the oh-so-arduous task of finding out. You see, magical things often happen when you stumble off the beaten path, […]

Tales from My Favourite Passport Stamp: Beautiful, Underrated Liechtenstein (in Photos)

Today, I want to tell you about my favourite passport stamp. May 8, 2016 – the day I set foot in Liechtenstein, the tiny microstate sitting happily between Austria and Switzerland, and of course – the 6th smallest country in the world. But here’s a secret: to date, I still think it’s one of the […]

TRAVEL TIPS YOU'LL WISH YOU'D KNOWN SOONER

The Cheapest Way to Travel Europe in 2019: The Ultimate Cheap Transportation in Europe Guide

What’s the cheapest way to travel Europe? After 3 years of bouncing around Europe as a) a backpacker, b) a broke student and now c) a restless expat, this is a question I’ve relentlessly sought the answer to. I can still remember my first taste of European budget travel. It was during my first ever […]

How to Avoid Pickpockets: The Europe Edition

When it comes to swiping tourist wallets, European pickpockets are in a whole league of their own. How do I know this? *nervous laughter* Let’s just say I’ve been caught in their traps… twice. I actually began writing this post over three years ago when a Roman pickpocket welcomed me to the city by sneaking […]

FRIDAY ROUNDUP: 10 Gamechanging Travel Products You Can Buy for Under $10

I’ve never been a big fan of acquiring “stuff”. After all, I’m a die hard light packer (see my guide for doing that here) and also just generally a person with weak arms, sooo… lifting heavy bags isn’t my thing. That said, as minimalist as I try to live, there are some products out there […]

“Travel Europe by car, they said… it’ll be fun they said.” I need to fill you guys in on the cold, honest truth: hiring a car in Europe ain’t all rainbows and scenic Instagram shots. In fact, hiring a car in Europe can kick your butt (and wallet) in seriously spectacular ways. And as I […]
