I spend quite a bit of time reading a variety of articles, blogs and opinions on where to travel, why you should travel there and how to do it right. Sometimes they are spot on, other times I couldn't disagree more. I usually end up a little jealous that they were there - wherever it was. I couldn't possibly recount every word I read but what I am going to attempt here is to pick my top three articles, each week or so, and tell you about them so we can all benefit. It might be my three favourite places, or it might just be a particularly well written piece. Alternatively it contains a really interesting story. In any case, I hope it's entertaining and useful!
First up is a quick look at Annecy, France - in the words of Brooke Saward: The cutest town in France. When someone says that, you should take notice. It's apparently just a bus ride from Geneva (albeit an hour long one) with trains from Lyon and Paris also available. Which reminds me, I'm overdue my annual trip to Lyon.
Next up comes Formentera, Spain as published by Devin Friedman in Travel and Leisure. The opening paragraph:
Finally, I happened on a review of mouthwatering food in Austria. Specifically 15 foods you should try as told by @watchmesee. I've been to Austria but I don't remember writing home about the food.
I clearly made a mistake. From Knödel (dumplings) to Brettljause (which, admittedly is just a collection of breads, cheeses, meats and pickles - but seriously what more do you want) to Käsekrainer (sausage filled with cheese), rounded off with some Apfelstrudel and a glass or two of Sturm. Sounds like a great day to me.
Thanks to all three writers - they have definitely added three places to my must-see list! What about you? Let us know below, add yourself to our mailing list and join in!
