  • Porcupine Ridge Hike in Kananaskis
    26 May 2022

    My inspiration for doing the Porcupine Ridge hike came from a post I saw on Instagram in early May – a time when most Alberta hikers are chomping at the bit to get into the mountains. The photo showed a little snow up high, but most had melted because of the south facing exposure. Fast forward three weeks, and John and I did the hike. It’s a challenging one – but a rewarding one with truly exceptional views after you break through the trees, about an hour into the hike.

    The trail is better than I expected and darned obvious for most of its length. It runs parallel to the Wasootch Ridge Trail – which is very popular as a spring hike. From Porcupine Ridge, you can also see Boundary Ridge, the west ridge of Midnight Peak (accessed from the Baldy Pass trail) and Tiara Peak. If you’re hiking early in the season, be sure to take warm clothes as its windy on the ridge. Icers would be a good idea if there was snow around. The same goes for gaiters. This is a fabulous hike that will help get you in shape for the hiking season.

    Porcupine Ridge hike details

    Distance: Approximately 9.2 km return to the high point

    Elevation gain: 713 metres or 2340 feet

    Time needed: 4.5 – 6 hours

    Map needed: Gem Trek Canmore & Kananaskis Village

    Dogs allowed: Yes, on leash; water available in Porcupine Creek at start and end of hike

    Family friendly: No – best for older kids who have done some scrambling

    Don’t forget: Purchase a Kananaskis Conservation Pass before you go. Always take the 10 hiking essentials.

    Panoramic view of part of Porcupine RidgePorcupine Ridge hike description

    I had read several Porcupine Ridge hike descriptions, but I was always left confused. I hope I’m clear in my directions.

    The description assumes a start at the unofficial parking lot (see directions at the bottom of the post) beside Highway 40 where it meets Porcupine Creek. Hike southeast up Porcupine Creek on a well-defined trail for 1.2 km to reach a bridge. The connector trail from the Wasootch Day Use Area ends at the bridge. From here you are going to go back and forth across Porcupine Creek – perhaps four of five times, depending on water levels, until you come to a fork and two branches of Porcupine Creek. There is no right or wrong place to cross the creek. Sometimes there are logs bunched together, and at other times you’ll have to rock hop, but its all very straightforward. You might also pass some people climbing on the cliffs.

    You might want to have a dry pair of hiking socks in case you get a soaker. If water levels are high, consider taking water shoes or even a lightweight pair of crocs for the crossings. Hiking poles really help for balance.

    At the location where the two creeks meet (as shown on the Gem Trek map), you will notice a faint trail straight ahead, that climbs steeply up in a general southeast direction. That’s the one you want – and that is where the hard work and climbing starts. About an hour from the trailhead, you’ll emerge from the trees. At that point the grade eases slightly and the views explode. Be sure to look back to see the mountain peaks including “Mary Barclay’s Mountain” and Mount Lorette.

    Work you way up to the next high point on the ridge. The trail is good up to here. There is a short side trail where you can enjoy a great view and have a look at a memorial bearing a cross and golf club. 

    The next section will have some people turning around BUT don’t. There is one scramble up a slab but it’s short. You may need someone to give you a boost to get up. Once on top of this, look for another well-defined path along the ridge. It looks scarier in photos than it really is. From the end of it – which only takes about 5 minutes to walk, you’ll see the way forward to the real summit ridge. However, if you have a huge fear of exposure, you will not like this section.

    After descending off this short section of ridge, head left around the big nob of rock in front of you. Continue up through the woods, to reach a flatter area. At this point there are two ways to the top. Most people head up the rocky boulders and stop short of a slab with some exposure you must climb. Others go round the rock at the bottom – and I am told the route to the real summit is easier this way BUT the descent isn’t fun. In that case, you’ll need to do a loop and come down the slab (see photo with hiker downclimbing). 

    I went up the boulder route and stopped short of the climb up the slab to the very top. That seemed to be what most people were doing – so do what feels comfortable to you.

    From there, retrace your steps, enjoying the superlative views on the way down. Below are photos that will give you a good idea of what the Porcupine Ridge hike is really like.

    The hike starts by following Porcupine CreekWhen the trail dies out on one side you’ll have to rock hop across Porcupine Creek to pick up a trail on the other side (the water is low the third week in May so crossing is easy)Sometimes you’ll find logs to cross onIf it’s a nice day you might pass some climbers beside Porcupine CreekThis is the junction of the two creeks and where you start to climb (up the rock on the left in the woods)The views when you emerge from the treesThe next stop is the top of the ridge on the right via a well defined trailAfter the memorial at the top of the first ridge (previous photo) you must climb up …and eventually down this short slab sectionA section of trail along the ridge that is solid but has some exposureDescend to the col and follow the trail up through the snow – the only time you would need to consider icers but more on the descent (and this snow won’t be around for long)Looking back to the descent of this section of the ridgeUltimately you are heading for the knob to the left of the high pointOur dog loved cooling off in the snowA fellow downclimbing from the high pointJohn at a high point – though you can drop down from there – and can reach it by going around this hunk of rockLunch spot and turnaround point for most people on the Porcupine Ridge hikeGetting out of the wind for lunch
  • The 13 Best Berlin Attractions You Can’t-Miss
    26 May 2022

    Let’s cut right to the chase: Berlin is a city worth visiting at least once. Known for its cosmopolitan atmosphere, Germany’s vibrant capital handsomely rewards urban explorers with a whirlwind of attractions — even locals haven’t exhausted all there is to do here. 

    Tried-and-true experiences popular among visitors include checking dazzling art collections at fabulous museums and galleries and discovering the city’s turbulent past by visiting heartfelt landmarks like the Holocaust Memorial and the Berlin Wall. 

    But there’s more to Berlin than a dark past. The city reinvented itself, and it grew to become a lively metropolis filled with trendy neighborhoods, multicultural restaurants, creative venues, and an electrifying nightlife that is a magnet for party-goers.

    With so many options packed into this bustling city, it’s easy to find reasons to stay for a week’s vacation or longer. 

    To help you get the most out of your trip to Berlin, we’ve rounded up the 13 top attractions in the city. Whatever your mood and interest, you’ll find something incredible on this list.

    The Top 13 Tourist Attractions in Berlin, Germany The Brandenburg Gate

    The Brandenburg Gate is, unarguably, one of Berlin’s most famous tourist attractions. Located in the city center, overlooking the alluring Pariser Platz square, the monument was commissioned by King Frederick Wilhelm II and built between 1788 and 1791.

    Originally built as a key entry point to Unter den Linden, which led to the Prussian palace, the gate came to symbolize Berlin’s division into East and West during the Cold War, and since the fall of the Wall, a reunified Germany.

    Aside from boasting a fascinating historical significance, the Bradenburg Gate dazzles visitors with its impressive architectural features. Designed by German architect Carl G. Langhans, who was strongly inspired by the Propylaea of the Athenian Acropolis, the monument is composed of 12 Doric columns that create five portals and is decorated with reliefs and sculptures designed by Gottfried Schadow. At the top, there’s a statue known as the “Quadriga,” which depicted the goddess of victory driving a chariot pulled by four horses. A masterpiece of neoclassical architecture!

    Address: Pariser Platz, 10117

    Reichstag Building

    After marveling at the grandiose Brandenburg Gate, make your move to the history-filled Reichstag. Originally constructed in 1894 to house the Imperial Diet (German: Reichstag) of the German Empire, the building was severely damaged in 1933 after being set on fire, and fell into disuse after World War II.

    The Reichstag building was fully restored after the German reunification, in 1990, when it underwent a reconstruction led by renowned architect Norman Foster. Now, this century-old construction is the official seat of the Bundestag, the lower house of the German parliament, making it one of the most important historical buildings in Berlin.

    If you plan on visiting the Reichstag, be sure to check out the building’s 800-ton steel and glass dome, which boasts an observation deck from where visitors can enjoy fabulous views of Berlin.

    Address: Platz der Republik 1, 11011

    East Side Gallery

    While most of the Berlin Wall was destroyed in 1989, it’s still possible to visit its only remaining stretch, which is the ultimate symbol of the German reunification.

    Located between the Berlin Ostbahnhof and the Oberbaumbrücke, along the Spree River, the 0,80-mile section of the wall was transformed into an open-air gallery — the longest in the world — featuring around 100 graffiti paintings by artists from around the world.

    One of East Side Gallery’s most irreverent paintings is “My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love”, which depicts the Soviet politician Leonid Brezhnev kissing the leader of the GDR Erich Honecker.

    Address: Mühlenstraße 3-100, 10243

    Schloss Charlottenburg

    Charlottenburg Palace seems to have been plucked out of a fairy tale. Built at the end of the 17th-century as a summer residence for art-loving Queen Sophia Charlotte, wife of King Frederick I, this opulent Baroque palace was a favorite retreat of seven generations of Hohenzollern rulers. They repeatedly redesigned the rooms, which still to the present day maintain a lavish décor and a royal grandeur.

    During a tour of the palace, visitors are able to catch a glimpse of the opulent interiors decorated with dazzling artworks by Caravaggio, Guido Reni, Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck, and Jacob Jordaens, and Jan Lievens. Schloss Charlottenburg also harbors a fabulous collection of 18th-century French paintings — the largest of its kind outside of France — making it one of the best museums in Berlin.

    Other highlights of the palace include the private chambers of Frederick the Great, the  Porcelain Chamber, home to an array of Chinese and Japanese blue ware, and the well-manicured gardens.

    Address: Spandauer Damm 10-22, 14059

    Opening Hours: Summer season Tuesday – Sunday from 10 am to 5:30 | Winter season from Tuesday – Sunday from 10 am to 4:30 pm

    Museum Island

    Welcome to the Museum Island, Berlin’s top tourist attraction for history buffs and art lovers. Nestled on the northern part of the Spree Island, this complex contains five stellar museums — Altes Museum, Neues Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie, Bode-Museum, and the Pergamonmuseum —, each of them home to outstanding art and archaeological collections.

    The Pergamonmuseum (Pergamon Museum) plays host to the Collection of Classical Antiquities, the Islamic Art Museum, and the Middle East Museum. Its crown jewel is the Pergamon Altar, a massive monument featuring a 370-foot long marble frieze depicting the Gigantomachy from Greek mythology.

    Altes Museum contains Berlin’s Antikensammlung (Collection of Classical Antiquities) and part of the Numismatic Collection, while the Bode Museum houses the Collection of Sculptures, the Museum of Byzantine Art, and most of the Numismatic Collection.

    In the Neues Museum, visitors will find the Egyptian Museum  —  home to a century-old bust of Queen Nefertiti —, as well as the Museum of Pre and Early History.

    Last but not least, there’s the Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery), which features 

    1800 paintings and 1500 sculptures by artists like Paul Cézanne, Renoir, and German painter Caspar David Friedrich.

    No wonder why the Museum Island was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

    Address: Bodestraße 1-3, 10178

    Opening Hours: Museum Island & Panorama Pass €19, Museum Pass €29

    Jewish Museum

    The Jewish Museum is another must-visit cultural institution in Berlin. The largest of its kind in Europe, the museum is praised for displaying a superb permanent exhibition entitled “Jewish Life in Germany: Past and Present”.

    Covering an area of over 3,500 square meters, the exhibit reminisces on German Jewish history from the Middle Ages to the present day.

    While snooping around the museum’s galleries, you’ll stumble upon an eye-opening collection of ceremonial objects, from a Torah mantle to a crown, as well as video installations, hands-on stations, 33 artworks, and immersive virtual reality experiences.

    Address: Lindenstraße 9-14, 10969

    Opening Hours: Open daily 10 am–7 pm

    Berlin Wall Memorial

    Running along both sides of the Bernauer Straße, the Berlin Wall Memorial is one of the most famous landmarks in the city, as it depicts a key event in German history.

    The memorial was created in 1998 to document the history of the division of the city into West and East Berlin, and it includes the last remaining piece of the wall.

    You’ll also find an open-air exhibition that illustrates the history of Berlin between the wall being built and being torn down. There, you’ll also find the Chapel of Reconciliation, which honors those who fled and were killed at the border strip, as a Visitor Center with a viewing platform located on the other side of the street (the western side).

    Address: Bernauer Str. 111, 13355

    Holocaust Memorial

    Located near the Brandenburg Gate, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a central place of remembrance for the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. This heartfelt memorial consists of over 2700 concrete blocks spread across an area of about 19,000 square meters, all identical in their horizontal dimensions, reminiscent of coffins.

    Beneath the memorial is located the Information Centre, which features themed rooms that documents the crimes of the Nazi during World War II.

    Address: Cora-Berliner-Straße 1, 10117

    Berliner Fernsehturm (Berlin Television Tower)

    Seeking to enjoy the most heart-capturing views of Berlin? Then head over to the TV Tower on Alexanderplatz. Opened in 1969, this 368m-tall tower features a 360º deck from where visitors can observe Germany’s capital in all of its glory!

    Address: Panoramastraße 1A, 10178

    Opening Hours: November to March from 10 am to 10 pm | April to October 9 am to 11 pm

    9 Tips to Prevent Lost Luggage
    9 Tips to Prevent Lost Luggage
    • By Seema
    • May 26, 2022

    If you travel frequently, you have most likely experienced the nightmare of missing luggage at some point during your travels. Lost luggage complaints have decreased significantly in recent years, yet it still happens. Misplaced luggage can disrupt a well-planned holiday and may result in a loss of time and money. You may be able to cope most of the time, but lost luggage can often lead to inconvenience, turmoil, and panic. If you’re planning a trip, why not take a few steps to allow your bags a better chance? While there are no foolproof ways to protect your luggage from getting lost, you can follow a few basic tips which may prevent your bags from getting misplaced and also help in recovering them if they go missing.

    1).  Fly non-stop or with longer layovers

    Traveling nonstop is the easiest way to safeguard your luggage because bags are frequently misplaced in transit. Unfortunately, we can’t always go for this option because of cost or non-availability. The next best alternative is to choose flights with a longer layover to give your luggage and yourself adequate time to get abroad on the next aircraft. When booking connecting flights, avoid layovers of less than 1.5 hours. If your flight is delayed, the airline crew will not have enough time to move your bags from one plane to the next. You’ll rush to your next flight, but your luggage may not make the connection in time. Plan a slightly more extended layover if you have booked the two flights separately. Or, if you are required to retrieve your baggage for customs before boarding the next plane. You need to pick up your luggage at baggage claim and drop it off after following the required procedure. This takes time and you cannot expect to be as quick as the airport staff. Remember all of this while booking tickets.

    .         Rawpixel.com2).  Make Your Luggage Stand Out

    Make your bag stand out by using eye-catching details. Purchase suitcases in striking colors or prints, wrap a bright ribbon/tape/tag around the handle, apply stickers/patches to the body, or use bold luggage straps – it all depends on your creativity. These simple markings will help you identify your luggage on the carousel among a sea of similar-looking suitcases. By personalizing your luggage, you ensure that none of your fellow travelers grab it by accident. If your luggage goes missing, the unique tags will also act as an identifying mark.

    3).  Reach on Time

    Arrive at the airport with plenty of time to check in your luggage. Checking in at the last minute can be risky for your bags. The rushed process can lead to incorrect tags being placed on your luggage. Don’t forget that bags also pass through many security checks before being loaded into planes. Bags of last-minute passengers would reach the loading bay last, and there might not be enough time to get your luggage on board.

    4).  Label your Baggage Inside and Outside

    Before checking a bag, label it outside as well as inside. Attach a sturdy baggage tag outside the suitcase with your name, hotel name, email address, and phone number. You can skip the home address. Luggage tags are often ripped off during the rough handling process, so keep a copy of your travel plans inside your luggage. Place it on top where it’s easy to spot. Duct tape a piece of paper or a card with all of the necessary information, including the address and a dated itinerary. This will make it easier for the airlines to locate you and return your luggage if it gets misplaced.

    .         Flickr.com5).  Tear Off Old Tags

    Remove any existing tags, barcodes, or stickers from your luggage before attaching any new tags or labels. Bags are scanned many times during your journey, and old barcodes might mislead luggage scanners with outdated information from previous flights. If the suitcase gets lost, we don’t want it to be re-routed to your prior location. Our goal is to make it simple to identify where the bags are going and keep them on track.

    6).  Take Some Pictures

    Click clear pictures of your bag and keep them with you. If you need to report lost baggage, you can provide a photo of the missing bag to the concerned authorities. This will make it easier for them to locate it. Compile a list of everything in your bag. However, if you are too lazy to make that effort, images will suffice. Snap a picture of the contents of the bag before zipping it shut. It will be useful while filling out the claims form if your bag is never located. Take pics of your baggage-claim ticket as well, just in case you misplace it.

    7).  Lock Up Your Luggage

    When traveling, you run the risk of not only losing your bag but also having your things stolen from your suitcase. Always use TSA-approved locks to secure your luggage. Thieves would target easy-to-open bags and may ignore your locked suitcases. If your luggage goes missing, a lock will keep the contents safe as it passes through multiple hands before reaching you.

    8).  Get to Baggage Claim as Quickly as you Can

    Prior to landing, the flight attendant normally announces the carousel number. Otherwise, you may look it up on the monitors. Try to reach the right baggage carousel as quickly as possible, and keep an eye out for your bag as it comes off the belt. This eliminates the danger of someone picking up your luggage, either accidentally or on purpose.

    .      Flickr.com9).  Don’t Overpack Your Bag

    Make sure you don’t overpack your bag. When the suitcase is flung around at the airport by the airline workers, it can burst open if it is overstuffed. In such instances, baggage handlers typically place the suitcase aside, resulting in the bag being delayed or lost. Better keeps your bags light and manageable.

    Despite this, your bag might still be misplaced or lost. As a result, it is vital that you keep all of your medications, valuables, essentials, and a change of clothes in your carry-on. Consider getting travel insurance.

    What to do when your bag is missing?

    Don’t panic if your luggage does not show up on the luggage carousel. File a claim right away, and do so before leaving the airport. Locate your airline’s baggage office and report the incident there. You will be asked to fill out forms with all of the necessary information about yourself and your luggage. After that, you can leave the airport. The airlines will then search for your bags and, if it is found, send them to your specified address.

    If the airlines are unable to locate your luggage, they will try to replace it with the suitcase that is the closest match. The contents of the bag will be monetarily reimbursed. The amount of compensation varies depending on the airline’s policy. Sometimes, you will be compensated for a day’s worth of needs, such as underwear, clothing, and basic toiletries. Keep the receipts for items purchased as they will have to be submitted. You might even be asked to make a list of everything in your bag. Jewelry, artwork, electrical equipment, high-value commodities, cash, and other assets are typically excluded from reimbursement.

    Today, travel is more accessible than ever before. Young people certainly use their chances to travel while still in college. Of course, sometimes, the hardest part of any travel plan is to pick a country or destination. Thus, young people have to look at affordability, safety, cultural inheritance, nightlife, and other personal preferences when choosing a country. It’s not an easy choice to make. Though, with a little bit of research, each student will find a country to their liking. To help you in your search, here are the most popular travel destinations for students. See if you can pick something for yourself here! 

    #1 France

    France is one of these countries everyone puts on a bucket list. Of course, many students, as the most impressive group, dream of walking the magical Parisian streets. So, young people often choose France as their travel destination. Sure, France, especially its capital, is not the cheapest place to travel. However, with the right approach, everything is possible. 

    While in France, you can survive on fresh croissants and coffee. Though, how much you can see for free there! Just think how many talented and famous people walked those streets! You can even pay for essays to learn more about the cultural inheritance of France in the art world, save time on endless papers by asking for professional help, and spend more time visiting new places.

    #2 Morocco

    Morocco offers an interesting mix of new and old blended together in one big country. It pays great respect to its cultural inheritance, keeping its spirit and history alive. It’s one of the most vibrant African countries. It’s full of colors and grand architectural monuments. You won’t find such a travel experience anywhere else in the world. Some people will compare Morocco to India, though. However, these countries have their own unique styles of surprising and welcoming their tourists. 

    #3 Spain 

    Spain is beautiful at any time of the year. You can go to the Western and Southern regions during the summer seasons. Enjoy the long, beautiful beaches and warm ocean waters. Come to Barcelona for incredible architecture and rich history. Travel to Seville or Madrid for the romantic atmosphere and spacious squares. Overall, each city in Spain will have something unique to offer. Students come here for fun times, delicious cuisine, and a great climate. In addition, Spain offers versatile nightlife with plenty of bars to all tastes, affordable music theaters, and nightclubs. 

    #4 Thailand 

    For a while now, Thailand has been very popular among all kinds of tourists from all over the world. It doesn’t matter whether you are a budget or luxury tourist. Whether you have a week or a few months, you’ll enjoy Thailand the same. Students often choose Thailand for its low prices and great street food. There you can find accommodation as cheap as $3 per night! 

    You can backpack through the entire country due to the great public transportation system. Spend time only in Bangkok or take a ferry to one of the many islands around Thailand. Go to the northern parts of Thailand if you want smaller tourist crowds and better prices. Overall, this country offers you plenty of routes to explore. 

    #5 Mexico 

    Of course, young people love Mexico! It’s affordable and fun with great cuisine and rich cultural inheritance. So, people come here to enjoy thrilling city life, gorgeous nature, and unique dining experiences. The dynamic urban life won’t leave you indifferent. That’s the city to find any type of entertainment, food, and cultural events to any taste or liking. However, what makes Mexico so special are the people. The locals are incredibly welcoming and warm, ready to greet travelers as their own. Finding a local guide and hearing their stories will be a nice addition to your trip. 

    #6 Peru 

    South American countries always attract many young people. Their vibrant nature, rich culture, and warm people serve as the best invitation to travelers. However, Peru is probably the most popular among all Latin countries. The reasons are simple. Beyond being one of the most affordable, Peru also has some of the most beautiful nature. Sure, the Andes play a big role in Peru’s popularity. However, did you know that Peru also has a desert? Indeed, this country has a lot to offer for all nature lovers. Students come here to hike and rest from college life. 

    #7 Greece

    Greece is one of the most popular and affordable countries when it comes to travel. Young people love coming there for the culture, nature, beaches, and food. Of course, Greece has a lot to offer young people. First, they can travel to one of the many Greek islands for vacations. There they will enjoy the full range of services and activities. You can go hiking, scuba diving, bar exploring, and, of course, partying. 

    You can also go to the mainland to see the great ancient ruins, wonderful architecture, and beautiful parks. The prices on the mainland will also be more pleasant for budget travelers. You can rent a car and spend days exploring Greece with all its mountains, beaches, and old cities. 

  • Secrets of Peru
    26 May 2022

    Travelers come from all over the world to see Machu Picchu. But after her adventure travels to Peru, Ker & Downey’s Director of Marketing learned there is so much more. She shares her secrets of Peru and her favorite “off the beaten path” experiences you can do beyond Machu Picchu. 

    By Sara Kramer 

    Secrets of Peru: Beyond Machu Picchu

    The great Incan dynasty was the first of its kind in South America. It spanned up and down the west side of South America. And the most famous structure from the Incas is Machu Picchu.  

    Built in the 15th century, Machu Picchu was thought to be where they held religious ceremonies. But in just 160 years, the Spaniards would conquer the Incas and destroy their structures. It is said that Machu Picchu remained in such excellent condition because the Spaniards were led around it during their conquest of the Incas. It was uninhabited until the early 1900s, when the famous anthropologist Hiram Bingham led an expedition through the Jungles of Peru and re-discovered it.  

    Machu Picchu is beautiful and gives us insight into a civilization that is largely unknown. But the secrets of Peru are about so much more than Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu will bring you to Peru, but it is everything else that will bring you back.  

    Here are three off the beaten path experiences to incorporate in your adventure travels to Peru, beyond Machu Picchu: 

    Hike the Andes Mountains

    The Andes Mountains are home to some of the highest peaks in the world. And Peru is a hiking mecca. It’s true, there are multiple hikes in Peru worth considering. One of the most notable is the Inca Trail. But away from the crowds you can find some of the most beautiful landscapes in all of Peru. While I was in Peru, we hiked up to Palomani High Pass, which sits at 17,000 feet above sea level. Largely unknown, the hike takes you through the Andean highlands to the town of Chillca, where a community of alpaca herders resides. Alpacas dot the countryside as you journey through the highlands, making your way up to the pass. As you come up to the pass, you will be surrounded by many glaciers. At 17,000, this hike is one featuring both beauty and reward and is a true secret of Peru.   

    Food & Drink Discovery

    So much about the Peruvian experience centers around their food and drink. You do not have to go far to learn that Peru is the land of the super (good) food: quinoa, avocado, mango, banana, and potato. It is the original farm-to-table destination. Do not miss the experience at El Albergue in Ollantaytambo. Here you can experience a Pachamanca lunch, a traditional Incan meal cooked on hot rocks. You will also have the opportunity to visit their coffee bean roastery and distillery on-site. It’s the ultimate food and drink experience.  

    And let us not forget about their coffee, a true secret of Peru. New age coffee shops can find throughout the entire country but especially in Lima, the Sacred Valley, and Cusco. Do not miss Ciclos Cafe in the Barranco district of Lima. This small coffee shop is doing incredible things with both coffee and chocolate. And have I mentioned their pisco? Yes, pisco is used to make Peru’s famous pisco sour. We recommend adding a cocktail-making class to your adventure travel to Peru itinerary. You will learn how to make the perfect pisco sour that you can enjoy long after you have returned home. 

    Community visits

    The thing that surprised me the most was our interaction with local communities. Many operators will suggest community visits that are more for show. And while it teaches you a little about the culture, it is often done just for tourists. But in Peru, the opportunity to visit these authentic communities is important. From the Mismany community at Moray to the alpaca farming communities around Chillca, to the Aymara community around Lake Titicaca, Peru has some of the best-kept communities because they are still living the exact same way they have been for years, with a few modern conveniences. Instead of going down into Moray in the Sacred Valley, take a 20-minute hike up to the Mismany community for a view from above. You will get a glimpse into their daily life and get away from the buses and crowds.

  • Wanna visit an Igloo, Melbourne? The Wharf Hotel’s Igloo Wonderland is here!
    26 May 2022

    This winter, the Wharf Hotel offers a delightful igloo dining experience for those who are looking for a cozy night under fairy lights on the banks of the Yarra.

    From Thursday 26 May until September 2022, you can gather your friends and family to enjoy your own private winter wonderland with stunning water views.

    wharf hotel igloos melbourne

    The small igloos can fit up to two to eight people and everyone dining inside an igloo must pre-order and prepay for a package. All the igloos are booked for exclusive use for two hours (with 30-minute breaks in between for their strict cleaning regimes to ensure your safety). There is a minimum of 2 adults per booking.

    For $59 per adult you’ll receive a grazing board to share inside your winter igloo dining experience.

    Feast on Mt Zero marinated olives, Baked brie, garlic pizza bread, Spinach & feta pastizzi, falafel, Squid, and White fish ceviche

    A variety of drinks are available, including mulled wine, mulled cider, sloe gin & rosemary hot toddy, espresso martini, house wine or a schooner of beer or cider.

    For an additional $20 per person, you can also order boozy hot chocolate and dessert to share.

    If you’re dining with kids they can select off the children's menu where every item is $15 and includes a main course and dessert. You can check out the menu here and there are activities on the sheet to keep kids amused (though I'd recommend BYO pens).

    The kids enjoy their burgers and the portions are generous. It's a shame that my kids refuse to eat most of the salad!

    The Wharf Hotel‘s Igloo Wonderland is open seven days a week, at all times that the hotel is open. Having said that, I think the best time to visit is close to sunset, so that you can appreciate the twinkling lights of the city views.

    As there are only a limited number of igloos it’s best to book your igloo ahead of time. If you’d like to make a reservation with kids 12 & under, please call 9810 0097 and their reservation team will gladly help you with your bookings.

  • Cosy Up at Auburn Hotel’s Winter Igloo Garden, Hawthorn East
    26 May 2022

    Get into the winter spirit by chilling out (pun intended) in The Auburn Hotel’s pop up Winter Igloo Garden.

    The historic hotel and fancy gastropub in Hawthorn East, across the road from Auburn Station, has installed one large and four igloos for private dining in their back courtyard. The igloos have been super popular in previous years and for this winter are open from Tuesday 24 May 2022 until September 2022.

    Winter igloos auburn hotel

    You can hire a private igloo with winter-themed food and beverages packages from $69 per adult. The small igloos are quite tightly positioned next to each other but spacious within and fit up to two to six people.

    For the three of us – one adult and two kids – there is enough room to spread out and even have a nap!

    All the igloos are booked for exclusive use for two hours.

    I tried the special $69 igloo package, starting with a choice of an American Honey Bourbon hot toddy cocktail, espresso martini, cherry spritz, glass of house wine, or a pot of tapped beer.

    Previously the food has been a generous grazing platter as pictured – during this visit it's a 3-course ‘feed me’ meal with entrée, main & dessert. There are vegetarian and vegan options as well.

    Note the menu is subject to change, view the sample menu HERE.

    If you’re dining with kids they can select off the children's menu, with main courses starting at $10. The kids enjoy their fish, salad, chips and the portions are generous.

    If you’re able to reduce the ratio of adults to kids then hiring a private igloo is great value! Note that there is a minimum of 2 adults per booking.

    The Auburn Hotel’s Winter Igloo Garden is open seven days a week, at all times that the hotel is open. As there are only a limited number of igloos it’s best to book ahead.

  • The Station Hotel igloos are heating up Footscray
    26 May 2022

    A winter wonderland is unveiled at The Station Hotel, Footscray! Dine at their Winter Igloo Garden from Thursday 26 May 2022 to October 2022 and enjoy a three-course feast.

    While the kids play on an undercover two-level playground, you can cozy up in an igloo that’s good for two to six people – making it the perfect place for an intimate gathering for couples, friends, or family.

    station hotel igloos melbourne

    Dining at The Station Hotel's Winter Igloo Garden means a delicious 3-course meal per person – basically, a ‘feed me' feast consisting of an entrée, main and dessert and a choice of drink on arrival.

    Beware – there is a lot of food! And The Station Hotel is famous for its steaks, so it may not be the most ideal restaurant for vegetarians, although they will do their best to cater to dietary requirements.

    Beverage choices include a boozy hot chocolate, Station mulled wine, espresso martini, a schooler of Furphy later or ale or a glass of house wine.

    Note at the time of my visit I am able to order a mocktail, which may not always be available as an off-menu item.

    The menu is subject to change but you can see the sample Winter Igloo Garden menu.

    Each booking costs $75 per adult and requires a minimum booking of two adults. You are allowed to stay for a two hour period with thirty-minute breaks in between so that the restaurant can undergo their strict cleaning regimes required for the safety of all guests.

    If you’re dining with kids they can select anything off the a la carte menu, and if you specifically want the kid's menu every item is at $10. You can check out the a la carte menu here.

    The kids meals are a bit on the small side for my children so they share my dessert too!

    The Station Hotel's Winter Igloo Garden is open seven days a week, at all times that the hotel is open. So why not treat yourself and your loved ones to a night beneath a sky of twinkling fairy lights in the garden this season.

    As there are only a limited number of igloos it’s best to book your igloo ahead of time – weekends are particularly busy but I found good availability for early evening on a weeknight.

    On weekends from Saturday 22 May to January 2023 you can book a private igloo for up to four guests alongside the Yarra River and enjoy a cosy high tea experience package catered by Studley Park Boathouse.

    In previous years, the Studley Park igloo experience gave off a winter like design that made you feel as though you were actually in a dome covered in a thin layer of ice. This year however, Studley Park has revamped their igloo experience into an enchanting Winter Paradise with a design that now shows off an elegant garden pod coated in ivy runs and boho inspiration. We are so excited for this refreshing experience and can't wait to see it ourselves during our visit this year but just for this post we will be using photos from our 2021 experience.

    A minimum of 2 adults are required per igloo and each adult is $52 per person. The igloos are decked out in comfy chairs, blankets, small tables and lanterns and fake foliage.

    The high tea winter igloo experience at Studley Park includes sweet and savoury bites plsu unlimited tea and coffee. The scones are particularly large and I like the chunky fruit jam with the serving.

    Kids are allowed to order from the cafe's a la carte menu, including a few kids meal options.

    Each booking lasts for a two-hour period with 30-minute breaks in between for their cleaning protocols. However, for $25 per person, you can get the bottomless sparkling and mimosa package which will allow you to stay for an additional hour and thirty minutes and really soak in the views!

    After your visit enjoy the rest of Studley Park, with numerous walking and bike paths to explore in a green pocket of Melbourne that's so close to the city.

    Book your winter wonderland high tea experience for a visit any day of the week, at all the times that the cafe is open.

  • Trencin, Slovakia – More than the Impressive Castle
    26 May 2022

    I can’t count how many times I passed Trencin, Slovakia when traveling by train between Bratislava and the northern part of the country. And every single time when I saw this picturesquely located town with the castle towering above it, I promised myself I would eventually visit Trencin. Finally, I found myself visiting Trencin and within the first few minutes I cursed myself I didn’t give this place a chance sooner. Even if I didn’t know about many things to do in Trencin (besides the castle), the town stole my heart right away and now it is on my personal list of the most pleasant cities in Central Europe. As it quickly turned out there are quite a few Trencin attractions worth checking and I ended up spending more time there than I had planned (not to mention it was a really charming place to be in). If you plan a trip around Central Europe be sure to include Trencin in your itinerary, it is definitely one of the best (and most underrated) places to visit in Slovakia. Where is Trencin, Slovakia Trencin, the city of around 55k inhabitants, is located in the central-west part of Slovakia, near the border […]

  • 9 Best Things to do in Bellagio, Italy (Lake Como)
    26 May 2022

    Are you planning to visit Bellagio on Lake Como soon? This picturesque town is definitely a tourist favourite, so we’ve gathered the best things to do in Bellagio for you to plan your trip.

    Colourful houses lined up near turquoise waters – that’s the villages on Lake Como for you. This large Y-shaped lake has many places that seem to be stolen straight from a fairytale book, and Bellagio is one of them.

    Arguably the more charming town on Lake Como, Bellagio is a popular travel destination within Italy. You can reach it from Milan in just over an hour and it makes for a fantastic day trip. While the town is pretty touristy, it’s still kept its charm and I highly recommend checking it out when spending some time in Italy.

    To help you make the most of your time in this lovely town, I’ve listed the best things to do in Bellagio below:

    Best Things to do in Bellagio, Italy

    Wondering what to do in Bellagio? Here are the things you shouldn’t miss:

    1. Wander Through the Town Centre

    One of the best things to do in Bellagio is to simply wander through the town centre. The picturesque cobblestone streets, alleyways and staircases will be more than enough to keep you entertained for a couple of hours.

    The lower part of Bellagio is located near the lake, with many places to sit and have a bite to eat. Further up the hill, the upper part of Bellagio is filled with unique boutiques and atmospheric alleyways.

    2. Enjoy Lake Como Views at La Punta Spartivento

    Bellagio is filled with great views of Lake Como, but one of the best ones has to be La Punta Spartivento.

    It’s located at the tip of Bellagio village, around 10 minutes from where the ferries arrive. You can find some of the best views of Lake Como here, with mountains from the Alps in the background.

    But even walking through Bellagio gives you more than enough views of the Lake, especially when walking towards the upper part of the town. And with so many good views, there isn’t a shortage of restaurants where you can enjoy the scenery.

    3. Explore Villa Melzi’s Gardens

    Bellagio itself doesn’t have many tourist attractions, but Villa Melzi is one of them. This 19th-century mansion has beautiful botanical gardens which you can enjoy for a small entree fee. The villa itself isn’t open to the public, however.

    4. Swim in Lake Como (Lido di Bellagio)

    The turquoise water of Lake Como does look quite inviting, doesn’t it? But can you swim in Lake Como?

    Yes, you can! Bellagio has its own little beach (Lido di Bellagio), where you can dip in the water or simply relax on the shore.  There are little gazebos offering a place to hide from the sun, as well as a place to eat and drink.

    5. Dine with a view

    Bellagio, being a pretty touristy town, has more than enough restaurants available. And most of them make full use of the stunning views of Lake Como.

    During my day in Bellagio, I sat down for a pizza and a glass of wine at Hotel Excelsior Splendide’s restaurant. It wasn’t even that expensive (especially for the location and the view), and the food was good! I paid €17 in total and enjoyed it thoroughly!

    6. Walk to Pescallo, Bellagio

    Just a short walk from Bellagio town lays Pescallo. This quiet fisherman’s village can be reached by walking up the hill in Bellagio. There are some small alleyways and cobblestoned paths you have to cross, but it’s a very scenic walk.

    7. Go on a Lake Como boat tour

    Since Bellagio is located on the lakeside of Lake Como, boat tours are very popular. You can enjoy the lake and the many famous villas that are built near it by boat. Some tours even offer extras like wine tasting – but keep in mind that these aren’t cheap!

    8. Take a trip to Varenna or Menaggio

    With so many ferries leaving the shores of Bellagio every 10–15 minutes, you may also want to take a trip to the other towns in Lake Como’s “Golden Triangle”. Both Varenna and Menaggio are only a short boat ride away and a single ticket costs you less than €5. Plus, the views from the ferry are stunning!

    Check out my guide to the best things to do in Varenna for some extra travel inspiration.

    9. Take a day trip to Milan

    You can also take a day trip to Milan when staying in Bellagio since Lake Como is located pretty close to the city. From Bellagio, the quickest way to get to Milan is by taking the ferry to Varenna and then hopping on the train to Milano Centrale.

    Milan has a lot to offer. From climbing the Duomo di Milano to seeing Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”, you can easily see most of the highlights in one day.

    How to get to Bellagio, Italy?

    The easiest and quickest way to get to Bellagio from Milan is by taking the train to Varenna-Esino and, from Varenna, you can take a ferry to get to Bellagio. The train will take just under an hour and the ferry takes 15 minutes.

    Bellagio doesn’t have its own train station. And while it’s possible to drive to Bellagio from Milan (75 km) or Como (32 km), it’s not the easiest route to drive and there isn’t much parking space available. The route is very scenic, however!

    Is Bellagio Worth Visiting?

    Bellagio is arguably the prettiest town on Lake Como, and while it’s a little touristy, it’s definitely worth a visit. The colourful houses against the turquoise lake make for a stunning view. While there isn’t a lot to do in Bellagio, simply wandering through the old town, taking a boat tour on Lake Como and having dinner with a lovely view make for a great day trip

    On top of that, from Bellagio, you can take trips to Varenna, Menaggio, Como and Milan. So even if you’re only spending one day in Bellagio, there are lots of places to explore nearby.

    How Many Days do you Need in Bellagio?

    If you want to explore more of Lake Como, I recommend going for 2–3 days. However, it’s completely possible to take a day trip to Lake Como from Milan and see most of Bellagio and Varenna’s highlights. Bellagio isn’t very large and, while very pretty, there aren’t many sights to see.

    Is it Better to Stay in Como or Bellagio?

    Both Como and Bellagio are great places to stay when visiting Lake Como, but which one is best for your trip? It depends on what you’re looking for.

    Bellagio is much smaller than Como and more charming. Since it’s located mid-lake, the views are absolutely stunning! However, it is quite touristy and there isn’t much to do.

    Como is more like a small city, and while there is more to do, it doesn’t have the same atmosphere. It is easier to get to Como compared to Bellagio.

    Alternatively, you can also stay in Varenna. It has a similar charm to Bellagio but it has a train connection, making it very easy to get to (especially if you’re carrying a suitcase!).

    Visiting Bellagio, Italy – Conclusion

    When going to Lake Como, you should definitely check out Bellagio. It’s definitely a favourite of all the towns on Lake Como, and while there isn’t a lot to do, you can easily fill a day of sightseeing and relaxing with one of the best views in Europe. Even if it’s just for a day trip from Milan, it’s 100% worth your time.

  • Day Trip to Nottingham: One Day Itinerary
    26 May 2022

    Planning a day trip to Nottingham and unsure about what to do? This one day itinerary shows you all the best spots in the city.

    Nottingham, the home of Robin Hood, Nottingham Castle and a pub that claims to be the oldest in the country. Since the city centre isn’t too large, you can walk to most museums, parks, historic buildings and a great range of restaurants and bars – with a few sights easy to reach with public transport. 

    From major cities like London or Manchester, you can get to Nottingham in under two hours by train, making it a perfect city break destination in the UK

    So if you’re wondering whether Nottingham is worth the trip, let me show you what you can do in this city when visiting for a weekend.

    Day Trip to Nottingham Itinerary

    Here are the best things to do in Nottingham in one day:

    Old Market Square

    Let’s start our weekend in Nottingham in the heart of the city: Old Market Square. After Trafalgar Square in London, this is the largest public space in the UK. 

    If you’re in a shopping mood, this is the perfect place to go, as most of the main shopping streets stretch out from this square. You can also find Nottingham Tourism Centre here if you’re after any specific information. And make sure to stop by the Left Lion outside the Council House, a city icon.

    200 Degrees Coffee

    Most big brands can be found in all major cities in the UK, but what truly makes a city special is its independent shops. And 200 Degrees Coffee is one of them. With its first coffee shop and roastery having been founded in Nottingham, it’s a business the city is especially proud of. 200 Degrees Coffee now have 15 cafes all across the UK – the perfect place for a quick caffeine boost to get ready for a weekend of exploring.

    Nottingham Castle & Robin Hood Statue

    And, of course, Nottingham is the city of Robin Hood. There are references to him and his Merry Men all throughout the city, but some of the most famous ones are the statues just outside the walls of Nottingham Castle. Since they’re outside walls, you can visit them without having to pay for the Castle entree.

    While on the topic of Nottingham Castle, it’s another highlight that deserves a spot on our itinerary. The original castle was destroyed in 1651, but a new palace was put in place for the Duke of Newcastle. In the building that stands today, you can find a cafe, museum and art gallery.

    Access to the gallery and museum is included with the main entree ticket. Apart from a collection of beautiful paintings, you can also find Anglo-Saxon brooches, medieval ceramics and stoneware from the 17th century.

    At the Castle, you can also go on a 25-minute tour through the Castle Caves and see the foundations of the medieval Castle for an extra fee.

    Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem Pub

    Dating back to 1189, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem claims to be the oldest pub in the country. Whether it’s true or not, it’s certainly worthy of a visit. Located at the back of Castle Rock, upon which Nottingham Castle stands, the pub is quite an impressive building. Inside, you’re transported back in time, with rooms carved out of Castle Rock. The “museum room” even holds a full knight’s armour and a collection of swords.

    Whether you’re ready for a classic pub meal or simply want to enjoy a quick drink, this is the place to be. On sunny days, you can use the picnic tables outside the pub too.

    Wander Through the City of Caves

    Nottingham has the largest network of caves in the UK – more than 800 of them! The City of Caves show you a glimpse of parts of them in their 45-minute tour. The audio tour takes you through several rooms and tunnels that were carved below the city centuries ago. From a medieval tannery to WW2 air raid shelters, these caves tell the story of Nottingham and it’s quite impressive to walk through them yourself.

    In theses caves, you can even find the concrete beams upon which one of Nottingham’s largest shopping centres now stands – you can truly see the layers of history.

    Visit Nottingham Contemporary

    Described by the Guardian as “the most inspiring gallery in the UK”, Nottingham Contemporary is a modern art gallery located in the Lace Market district of the city. The exhibitions change every three months and art is from artists all over the world. And best of all, you can enter the gallery for free.

    (Window)Shop in Hockley

    As mentioned before, it’s the independent businesses that give a city its character. Hockley is the area in Nottingham where you can really see this. Vintage clothing, old record shops, secondhand books, tattoo parlours and restaurants ticking off most of the world’s best cuisines – Hockley has it all.

    It’s also a great place to grab a drink in the evening, and my recommendation would go out to Lost Property, a secret cocktail bar in Hockley. Partly located in the caves of Nottingham, this bar really had the quirkiest decor in the city.

    After spending a day in Nottingham city centre, you’ve had more than enough time to see some of the cities highlights and get an impression of what a great city Nottingham is. But since we’re planning to spend a weekend here, you can take a little trip out of the city to Wollaton Hall on your next day. Alternatively, Sherwood Forest (where Robin Hood supposedly lived) or Derby are other nearby places that you could include in your weekend trip.

    Wollaton Hall and Deer Park

    Wollaton Hall and Park are just a short (bus) drive out of the city. This striking Grade I-listed building was finished in 1588, and has been featured in some movies, including The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. Nowadays, you can find the National History Museum inside.

    While the Wollaton Hall itself is worth a visit on its own, the 500-acre deer park surrounding it makes it for a perfect afternoon out of the city.

    How to Get to Nottingham

    Located in the East Midlands, Nottingham is quite easy to get to from both London and Manchester (or nearby cities). Nottingham is 108 miles from London and by train, it takes around one and a half hour. By car, it takes a bit longer (around two and a half hour).

    If you’re coming from Manchester, it’s around 70 miles, which takes around two hours by train or car.
