The Montreux Christmas Market in Switzerland, known locally as Montreux Noël, is hands down one of the most magical Christmas markets you can visit in Switzerland.

Basel Christmas Market Guide 2019: Where to Go, What to Eat & More!

The Basel Christmas Market in Switzerland is often hailed as one of the country’s largest and most beautiful markets, which is high praise considering Switzerland completely sleighs Christmas, with every city poppin’ like a chocolate dipped snowglobe.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 […]
