Tips for Traveling with the Whole Family

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Taking a trip is supposed to be fun, but travelling with the whole family can have challenges of its own, especially if you have children of different ages.

Trip planning is sometimes difficult, but if you take some simple steps and make the right plans, it can be enjoyable for everyone involved. Here are some tips for traveling with the whole family.

Unlike Upper Manhattan, Lower Manhattan, also known as the Downtown, offers a dramatic contrast between the new and the old. The experiences you will get there span from the 17th century, and the best way to savor every moment is by using a bus tour service.

Basically, there are so many things to do and see in Lower Manhattan, and what tour you choose depends on the time you have to spend in the area. Keep in mind that Manhattan is the mother of New York City, thanks to the contribution of the Dutch and the British.

34 bite sized travel tips to make life easier

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

When you travel nomad-style, slowly moving from place to place, you very quickly learn plenty of travel tips to make your life just that little bit easier. Stopping and soaking up the culture of a place, rather than ticking tourist attractions off a bucket list, is very different to using your 3-4 weeks off work every year to lie on a beach at a resort. Whether you’re travelling alone, with someone else, or as a family like we do, you’ll very quickly learn what works and what doesn’t for you and your particular needs and circumstances. Our first destination when we left Australia was Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, and before we’d left our first hotel we’d made changes to the way we travelled. Your travel learning curve really is that quick! So, to give you a head start on things to think about for when you start travelling, or even if you’re already on your way, here are 34 bite sized travel tips to make you’re travel life a bit easier.

Four Places Worth Visiting in Santorini

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

As your ferry approaches the port of Santorini and you watch the island getting closer and closer, it’s easy to believe that you’re sailing into the view of one of Alfred Sislay’s idyllic paintings.

On the southernmost border of the Aegean archipelago, Santorini is not only considered to be one of the most beautiful islands of Greece, but one of the most stunning in the world.

Once you set foot on the island, Santorini will take you on a trip into its past: it’s here you’ll come face to face with the ancient Minoan civilization and the magnificent frescoes it left behind, the grand and fearsome eruption of its volcano and the huge caldera that’s still marveled at by thousands of tourists each year, and of course, its beautiful re-birth as one of the most picturesque places of this Earth.

These are the four top places to visit while you’re there.

Did You Know Australia Has Pink Lakes?? You Have To See These To Believe!

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

It was the crack of dawn but Peter and Jeanie Kelly from Murray Offroad Adventures were on time and ridiculously chirpy. All it took, however, was a dash down the Mallee Highway and a quick pit stop at the Hattah General store (Jeanie phoned our coffee order ahead, the star) for those early-morning dozy feels to disappear as the day started to brighten and the temperature began to rise.

The pink lakes of Murray Sunset National Park are truly breathtaking. Endlessly blue skies sit against bright pink waters and sparkling salt deposits; this is one phenomenon you have to see to believe.

Move Over Las Vegas; Here are 3 Reasons Why Tourists Prefer Macau

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Thanks to appearances in countless Hollywood movies, Las Vegas has been widely regarded as the gambling capital of the world, with the bright lights of Sin City drawing visitors from around the globe for many decades.

However, the famous Nevada city can no longer claim to be the king of casino culture, and, in truth, hasn’t been for just over a decade now.

Rising to park itself firmly on that particular throne is Macau, which has transformed itself remarkably from what was once a sleepy fishing port to a booming Asian tourist destination at the top of many ‘must visit’ lists. Move over Las Vegas, because Macau is where the action is!

15 freelancer jobs to make money on the road

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

Being a freelancer is a recent phenomenon from a mass scale point of view. Once upon a time work and travel were mutually exclusive pastimes for almost everyone. You either worked or you travelled, but 99% of us really couldn’t do both. Of course back when I first travelled overseas I worked as a primary school teacher in London for two years, but that was different. I couldn’t just get up and live somewhere else one day just because I felt like it. I was living in London, in a bricks and mortar building I had to go to Monday to Friday, earning money by teaching little English kids how to read and write. Today things are much, much different. The freelancer community is exploding and the amount of people either leaving their jobs to freelance online, or negotiating with their employer to work from home or on their travels, is in the tens of millions worldwide. For many it doesn’t matter whether you’re in your home office or on a beach in the Bahamas, as long as you have a laptop and an internet connection you can do the exact same job to the exact same standards.

[越南] 過夜巴士 (芽莊->會安)

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

過夜巴士不是毎一個人都適合,睡覺時怕吵、怕陌生人或在車上沒法入睡的人,和一定要洗澡的人,都不適合。乘過夜巴士即使能入睡,也是一件很累的事,所以沒法在車上入睡的人還是可免則免。 當然過夜巴士 (Sleeper bus/Overnight bus) 有大派用場的時候,當目的地太遠,車程需要8小時以上,過夜巴不會浪費日天觀光的時間,更可以節省了一晚住宿,黑夜裡趕路,隔天醒來就繼續玩樂。 (想知道我的越南行程和如何利用巴士穿梭越南各城市,可看看 [越南] 新咖啡巴士攻略 。) 由於我毎到一個城市才買去下一站的車票,在高海拔的山城大叻,我問了兩家巴士公司都沒有直接去會安和峴港的車。經過我仔細格價後,我買了新咖啡的車票先下山到芽莊,停留數小時再乘過夜巴士去會安古城。幸好地,我下山的車遇上了「越南藤原拓海」,竟然比原定時間早了半小時到達芽莊,距離過夜巴士出發還有兩個半小時,吃晚餐和休息的時間充裕! 轉車等待的時間,我想把行李寄存在新咖啡辦公室,起初職員拒絕,因為地上已堆滿其他乘客的行李。我告訴他,賣票員答應了可以寄存,那職員才讓我寄存。如果乘新咖啡的巴士可以嘗試寄存行李,不過他們不會負責任何損失。我覺得新咖啡的職員挺可靠,我在會安的早上也有寄存,他們把行李放進一間職員房間。 約兩小時的轉車時間,我先好奇的看看芽莊沙灘,人超多! 芽莊交通很混亂,電單車亂走,靠著交通警才勉強過了馬路。填飽了好奇心,就找了一家餐廳填飽肚子,點了百吃不厭的牛河! 吃飽上路,睡得更好! 去會安的過夜巴士將於傍晚七時出發,出發前半小時要到辦公室劃位,職員會把同行的盡量安排一起。隨票附送一張字條,提醒我小心財物,因為這程車很多小偷。 我只帶了一件外套和隨身袋進車廂,行李就一定要放車底行李箱。一入車廂司機就會要求除鞋,他會給一個膠袋放鞋子,附送水和濕紙巾。我提著鞋進內找位置,發現地板很清楚,應該是限制不得穿鞋的好處。 去會安過夜巴士用的是Sleeper bus,有上下床舖,床舖不是安全平坦的,輕微傾斜像按摩椅。毎個床舖上都放了一張被子,有膠袋入起,我不會期望被子毎次都有清洗,但打開挺乾淨的,沒有異味。床舖不硬,頭的位置有軟枕,我試倘一下覺得意外地舒服。以前在歐洲也乘過過夜巴士,都只是椅子,睡得很辛苦。反而新咖啡這設計不錯,而且一排三張床,上下舖共六張床,車廂能容納很多人。我睡中間的下舖位,我覺得這位置最方便,因為要上洗手間的話,兩邊走廊都可以用,下舖又不用爬樓梯。 腳的下方有一個空間,三面密封,只有腳伸進去的一面可以拿到東西。隨身行李只能放這裡,因為車廂沒有行李架。我只有155cm高,雙腳伸直後,腳底空間充裕,足夠放一雙鞋和我個隨身袋,如果是背包應該不太可能。我看其他人都把東西藏得好好,所以即使高一點也能容納,安全一點還是不要帶太多東西上車。東西藏在腳底,我覺得挺安心,如果別人要偷一定會把我弄醒,如果這都可能被偷我就無話可說了。 由芽莊晚上七點出發,預計明早六點就會到會安。車出發後,大約兩小時多就有休息,有洗手間。洗手間時間有點混亂,要小心財物。後來到了零晨時分,我發現司機平均毎一小時停一次休息,有一次直接在路上停了,沒有洗手間的。我懷疑是司機累了,毎小時都要休息一次,或是公司規定零晨巴士要休息。我是車一停我就會醒過來的人,弄得我毎小時醒一次,不過車上大部分都睡得很甜。 早上六時準時到達會安! 這是我乘過最舒服的過夜巴士,下車不會感到腰酸背痛,只是有點睏,還有精力去找早餐吃和逛會安古城。 總結這一程越南過夜巴士,還是值得推薦的,準時又好睡,車廂整潔,最重要是十一個小時的車程才80多港元,實在沒有埋怨了。車上有很多外國背包客作伴,可以放心乘搭,獨遊也可以趕快交個朋友互相照料。

Read the two major newspapers, listen to any talk back radio, or turn on the TV at pretty much any stage across the weekend, and chances are sport will be front and centre. I love my sport, I worked in professional sport in Melbourne for nine years, and even I get sick of the coverage. If there’s such as a thing as sports poisoning, then almost every Melbournian has a severe dose 12 months a year! If you’re a visitor to Melbourne with an interest in sport, you’ve come to the right place. At any time of the year you can check out some sporting event featuring the world’s best going at it. The number of world-class athletes who call Melbourne home and ply their trade here, plus the world-class athletes who visit with their clubs or for major sporting events is mind-boggling. So to try and cut through the clutter and confusion for you, here’s a comprehensive guide to sport in Melbourne.

An Overview of Different Travel Bags: Why it’s so Important to Choose the Right Bag for Your Trip

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

I’m sure every traveler at some stage has found themselves in the situation where they’re stuck traveling with the wrong kind of bag.

Whether it’s trying to lug a suitcase through the jungle and beating the crap out of your wheels (been there), or throwing everything into a hiking pack for a stay at a luxury hotel, a travel experience is often about choosing the right kind of bag.

And there are many different types of bags, which will be suitable for different types of trips. So don’t fall into the trap of thinking any bag will do, because you just need something which will transport your things.

Bags are not sacks. They are not meant to be used as sacks. Bags are painstakingly blueprinted to strike a perfect balance between design and utility, for specific types of trips.

So to avoid committing ‘bags faux pas’, consider the following types of bags, and which will be most suitable for your upcoming trip.

A Journey Through Madagascar: Notes on the Privilege of Travel

by NomadicMatt @ Nomadic Matt's Travel Site

We travelers are a lucky bunch. It's easy to forget just how privileged we are to be able to travel the world. The truth is, most people rarely even leave their own country, let alone visit destinations all over the globe. My recent visit to Madagascar reminded me that it's important to keep this perspective in mind, and to give back to organizations that help the places we visit.

Things You Need to Know About the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Are you looking for an extreme trekking challenge? Then you’ll love Nepal’s epic 62-kilometer trek to Everest Base Camp which lies 5,365 meters above sea level.

The Mount Everest base camp trek will take you through tiny mountain villages and pine forests, alongside topaz rivers and across staggeringly-high suspension bridges to the foot of the world’s highest mountain. However, with sub-zero temperatures and altitude sickness to contend with this isn’t a challenge for the faint-hearted.

Having completed the trek myself, here are some important tips on how to survive the journey to Everest Base Camp.

Where to Lose and … Find Yourself in Greek Mykonos

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

The Aegean Sea has been characterized by many as the heart of the Mediterranean and has been commonly linked to colorful mythology, tales of pirates and fishermen, and, in recent years, as the hot-spot of cosmopolitan summer party life for island-hoppers.

Among the family of the Aegean islands however, stands one in particular which is perhaps its most precious jewel: Mykonos beams effervescently due west and it’s certainly not shy at showing it.

Being the favourite destination of vacationists worldwide, Mykonos has become synonymous to beautiful, luxurious and vibrant vacations. But Mykonos is so much more than what the eye meets: it’s actually the ideal place where you can lose yourself on its surface and also find it in its depth.

[越南] 峴港美食篇

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

好多人去過峴港後,都大讚當地食物又平又好食,我挑選了幾款峴港美食推薦給大家。 (1) 雪糕椰青皇 Kem Ý Trái Dừa 剛到達峴港這個陽光與海灘的天堂,同時也發現她地獄的一面,六月份去時,萬里無雲的天空下是38度的白天。熱到傻吃雪糕就最適合不過,峴港有一款必試甜品,就是塞滿雪糕的椰青 Kem Ý Trái Dừa。話說峴港河岸兩旁酒吧、餐廳都很多,還有很多水準出色的甜品店,我推薦的這家是最受歡迎的。雖然樓高三層,但如果晚上來,還是要大排長龍,皆因樓上雅座可以欣賞180度河景。 甜品方面,這餐廳除了雪糕,還有Smoothies、燉椰皇、Yogurt等等,全部新鮮製作。當中最貴就是我要介紹的雪糕椰青皇,新鮮大椰青,椰青水倒出來後,放入三球自選口味雪糕,配上花生和餅乾,簡直是完美下午茶或飯後甜品。椰青水不會浪費,會另上。說最貴不是想嚇怕大家,只是方便下單,因為餐牌是越南文,點最貴的就是了,店內也有圖片輔助。這麼豐富的甜品,只需要 VND50,000,大約HKD17,點來「呃 like」也不錯。 Dừa Bén Tre 196 地址: 196 Bạch Đằng, Phước Ninh, Đà Nẵng, Vietnam ( https://goo.gl/maps/XS2pMeKRdcv) 就在龍橋的西河岸,由橋開始向北走,還未到 Cafe Highland就會找到   (2) 本土海鮮 峴港沙灘以北一帶有很多海鮮大排檔,不過我不是要推薦大家去那邊,因為那一列排檔都是以遊客生意為主。基本在峴港吃海鮮,毎一家都很新鮮,為遊客以設的餐廳只是把同樣菜色價錢標貴了。 第一次光顧這家餐廳是因為位置鄰近酒店,而且店內坐滿越南人,我就是偏愛這種當地人也會去的餐廳。看到旁邊一家人點了一桌海鮮,我急不及待要點菜,可笑的是這家又是只有越南文餐牌。最後靠越南大媽的幫助下,成功點了一碟燒生蠔和魷魚炒麵。燒生蠔 (Hàu nướng) 即點即開,在越南吃海鮮通常以公斤計算,點一公斤大約有一打,澆上特製醬汁,醬汁貫徹越南風味,酸中帶辣,再灑上大量蔥花和花生碎。 魷魚炒麵 (Mực Xài Mì ),魷魚爽口彈牙,配菜很多。早前在胡志明市試過越南炒麵,覺得不合口味,麵很乾,菜很苦。這家海鮮店的炒麵令我對炒麵挽回很多分數,吃完還想再添。 因為價廉物美,又很喜歡這裡的氣氛,隔天晚上再光顧,發現原來早點來吃晚餐,會有一碟鵪鶉蛋作前菜,很有特式。第二次來除了Encore燒蠔,還點了檸檬葉煮蜆 (Nghêu Hấp ),味道清甜帶香草味。 至於埋單多少錢,已經平到我忘了,大約是HKD120以下兩位,太平便的關係,應該要擔心肚皮可以吃多少比較重要。 Quán Trí hằng  地址: 2 Triệu Việt Vương, Sơn Trà, Đà Nẵng, Vietnam ( https://goo.gl/maps/EEQC9iRe68v) 在東河岸的小社區,所以好有街坊feel,像香港的大排檔。點地也較難找,沿著熱鬧的河岸向北走,看到泰國餐廳後轉右入,晚上開燈的店不多,顯得這家餐廳很突出。   (3) 越南撈檬粉 加 新鮮蔗汁 越南無論河粉、米粉還是檬粉都是大眾美食,南越和北越吃 Pho的文化各有特色,而撈檬粉在越南中部就最流行。在峴港要找一間好吃的越南湯河會有點困難,但撈檬粉就很多,吃厭了湯河不防轉轉撈檬。在酒店早餐,我早已一嘗撈檬的滋味。那天踏單車離開沙灘時,路過一家小檔,雖然是路邊灘有點擔心衛生,但見她生意超好,很多人坐下來吃或外賣,就二話不說坐下。這越南大媽只賣一款撈檬,毎一碗都有火腿和扎肉,只要跟她說要不要辣就可以等食。撈檬口感清爽,配料多令味道很有層次。 這個路邊攤只賣撈檬,有趣的是其他食客都不約而同在喝蔗汁,原來是光顧了旁邊一間賣蔗汁的地舖。蔗汁是即叫即榨,完全無添加,一滴滴黃色汁液倒滿一杯。老闆問我是要現在飲還是外賣,我指一指撈檬檔,他就用了膠杯。這杯蔗汁特別在是黃色的,不是香港常見的綠色,味道清甜,還帶一點香茅味,香茅味是來自甘蔗的,因為我看著製造過程只用了甘蔗。這杯蔗汁還有一個驚人價錢,只賣VND5000,即是兩蚊,兩蚊,無錯只是兩蚊就可以買來清暑解渴。 一家吃,一家喝,互相帶動對方的生意,這種有趣的互動富有人情味。 很可惜,沒有怕下店舖的照片,沒法教大家去,只是從沙灘回酒店的路上遇到,旅行有時就是要看緣份。   (4) 特式咖啡室 其實它同時是咖啡室、酒店和甜品店的合體,在河岸兩旁都有不少酒吧,感覺東面的較多年青人,店舖設計也別出心裁。我去的這間氣氛很好,適合聊天放空。我點了杯 Cookies & cream特飲,沙冰造得很幼滑,曲奇味濃。...

Fun Things to Do in Munich for the Adventurous Soul

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Yes, Munich is home to Oktoberfest, offers tours to Neuschwanstein Castle, has the BMW Museum, and numerous beer gardens, and it's for these attractions the city is most famously known.

But what if you are looking for something new and exciting to do in Munich. This Bavarian city offers many secret activities and adventures that are sure to add some excitement to your next German holiday, and some will most definitely push you outside of your comfort zone!

So once you’re tired of listening to the sounds of a glockenspiel and are done playing dress-up with lederhosen and dirndls, why not try these adventures on for size. Put down that bratwurst or schnitzel, book a Munich taxi, and head to one of these quirky off the beaten path attractions.

My 13 favourite travel movies of all time

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

As someone who loves to travel, there’s something extra special about watching travel movies. I’m an enormous movie buff. I’ll watch almost any kind of movie, and even if it’s rubbish, find something to enjoy about it. As soon as I watch a really good travel movie, I want to head into my bedroom, get my backpack out, fill it up with clothes and head to the airport. Being inspired to travel by watching amazing travel movies is one of life’s great pleasures. Here is a list of my 13 favourite travel movies of all time. Apart from the common travel theme running through them all, they all have other concepts and ideas that conjures up an incredible sense of wanderlust whenever I watch them. The idea that it’s never too late to travel, it will change your life immeasurably, you’ll meet amazing people along the way, and that we should use every day we have to live life to the fullest, are so powerful they inspired me to sell everything I owned and set off on a nomadic adventure with my wife and son.

Why Sri Lanka Inspires for a Second Trip

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Since I started travelling four years ago, I have been lucky enough to experience truly varied cultures and places, many of which I hold dear. Sri Lanka, however, has always had a special place in my heart and I’ve made it my mission to convince everyone else of its merits.

Despite a troubled past, Sri Lanka and its people are well on their way to a full recovery. More than that, they are very welcoming to people who wish to experience the beauty of their country and perhaps contribute a bit to stimulating the local economy.

I had such a great experience in Sri Lanka that I even decided to start my own blog about the country and inspire as many people as possible to visit! You can find the blog at takemetosrilanka.com.

With friendly people, incredible food, and stunning locations throughout the country, there are plenty of reasons to choose Sri Lanka as your holiday destination. You’ll love Sri Lanka for the following reasons, and it’s for these reasons that the country will inspire a second trip!

The east coast of Tasmania is all about the beaches

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The east coast of Tasmania is all about the beaches. The sand is a brilliant white and the water a magnificent crystal-clear blue that you usually see on travel brochures and postcards. The big grey rocks with splashes of bright orange act as the beach’s bookends, while the native bushland that often lines the beach’s edge remains virtually untouched. The beaches are not tropical. Instead they are rugged, wild and sometimes isolated. And despite the Great Eastern Drive from Orford in the south to St Helens in the north being famous the world over for its spectacular coastal views, you’ll often have the beach to yourself if you choose to stop for a swim or a walk. Anywhere else on Earth, and a coastline like this would be a magnet for hotel chains, global tourist operators and real estate developers. But for some reason Tasmania’s east coast remains a quiet, charming and relatively undiscovered corner of the world lined with quaint little towns and spectacular national parks. We spent five days exploring the east coast from our rental home in Four Mile Creek, a town consistently of exactly four streets, a children’s playground and a cricket ground. Our balcony overlooked [...]

Vietnam Visa On Arrival – everything you need to know

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The whole idea of a Vietnam Visa On Arrival approval letter seems a little strange to me. Having to apply and send money to a website you don’t know is legit, to get emailed an approval letter that must be presented at your arrival airports Visa On Arrival office (with more money) before you get your visa is a real leap of faith, especially for the inexperienced traveller. Given Vietnam was the first country we went to when we left Australia, we were about as inexperienced as you can get. But this is the process we went through and it worked out perfectly. What is a Vietnam Visa On Arrival As the name suggests, a Vietnam Visa On Arrival is simply when you’re issued with your visa when you arrive by plane, as opposed to organising it before you leave your country. You can go through your local Vietnamese embassy to ensure you have a visa before you leave your country if you prefer, but it’s more expensive, you’ll need to send your passport away and it takes more time. The bonus is you can just walk through customs on arrival without having to head to the Visa On Arrival office, [...]

Keeping data safe while traveling: a guide

Every day, travellers passing through airports, train stations, and lounging in cafes expose their data to ruthless criminals. They don’t do this consciously: by innocently logging onto a wi-fi hotspot set up by a hacker, they reveal passwords, browsing habits, conversations, and other information which can be used to turn their lives upside down.

An Unintended Trip to Sula Vineyards: Discovering India’s Napa Valley in Nasik

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

A 3 to 4 hour drive from Mumbai, Sula Vineyards is the oldest winery in India. It is a fabulous way to unwind from the hectic bustle of city life, where you can discover the place where Indians first experienced wine.

In 1996, Rajeev Samant planted the first wine grapes in Nashik and today this region is India’s premier wine-growing region, producing 80% of the country’s total wine.

Spread over a total of over 3000 acres, Sula’s vineyards are home to some of India’s finest grapes, so if you’re looking for a place for your next wine tour, you should visit Nashik, in Maharashtra state.

This is India’s Napa Valley; after Sula Vineyards was established in 1999, 35 other wineries followed suit in the region over the next decade. It’s quite incredible how one man paved the way for the emergence of India’s Wine Capital.

Shopping in Melbourne, where to get your fashion fix

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

Melbourne is defined by its suburbs, and almost every suburb has it’s own shopping precinct. Shopping in Melbourne is like a sport all of its own, to go with the myriad sporting options every visitor to Melbourne should check out. Melburnians are no shrinking violets when it comes to fashion, with many of the country’s trends starting right here in Australia’s fashion capital. However, with so many options, from the biggest chain retailers to the smallest chic boutiques, from enormous shopping malls to suburban shopping strips, it can be overwhelming to know where to go to get what your looking for. To make your shopping experience a little less intimidating, here is a selection of the biggest, best and most popular Melbourne shopping precincts for you to check out during your visit.

The Ultimate Travel Guide to Stockholm’s Gamla Stan

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

A trip to Stockholm isn’t complete without a trip to Gamla Stan. The city’s Old Town, and one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe, this is after all where Stockholm began, all the way back in 1252.

Made up of 4 islands, Gamla Stan is mainly focused on the largest of the group, historically known as Stadsholmen. Stockholm itself means “log island” and as the legend goes, Swedes looking for a new capital that was safe from armed gangs, had filled a log with gold and sent it adrift. When it landed on what is now Gamla Stan, they knew they had found their new capital city.

Gamla Stan is a living museum filled with beautiful churches, narrow winding cobblestone streets, colourful architecture, the finest restaurants, and accommodation to suit all tastes. This is the real Stockholm, and where every Stockholm adventure should begin.

Consider this your ultimate guide to staying, playing, and eating in Gamla Stan.

[德國生活] 周日市場

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

上回提到,我入住德國小鎮基爾第一個星期日,因所有店舖休息而非常失望,不過也讓我了解到德國人的家庭日文化。 當然怕悶的不止我一人,喜歡逛街的也不止我一個。星期日的時候,當所有店舖休息,空出來的街道會不定期舉辦周日市集。市中心的購物街和市政廳廣場都被攤位擠滿,充分利用了公共空間。 但不要對貨物質素抱有太大期望,大部分的攤位都是把家裡的雜物拿出來賣,舊衫舊書舊袋,還有擺設和廚具等,簡直是德國鴨寮街。他們像收藏家,有攤位擺出過百本舊雜誌。 原本死氣沉沉的廣場頓時充滿生機,毎一個角落都被善用。周日市場賣的東西沒有統一主題,但卻吸引了很多人逛街,比星期六Shopping Day還要多。周日市集的概念不流於表面的買賣,更是連繫社區的活動,都是靠左鄰右舍自發組織,沒有大台。在基爾不只一個周日市集,在我住的社區周日市集就在超市 Famila 外的停車場舉行,這類市集是很貼地的社區活動,因為時間和地點只有住該區的人才知道。別說是來訪的郵輪旅客不會知道,我也是搬來一個月後才發現這小天地。 小妹覺得周日市場這個概念好有意義,販賣家中不再需要的東西,以低價轉售給有需要的人,概念很環保。我就在市場買了未開封的單車鏈和花瓶。 市政廳廣場原來的樣子,就是一片空曠,周日市集偏地開花時,我差點認不出廣場。(相片遺失了,只好用google map頂替。)

Experiencing a Whale Watching Tour in Sydney

by Sarah Appleford @ Travelling Apples

One of my most memorable experiences during our travels has been whale watching.  To see these enormous creatures launch majestically into the water is incredible.  So when I was up to Sydney for work, I couldn’t wait to catch the last of the humpback whale season with Oz Whale Watching tours. Gathered at King St Wharf 9 at 8am, we were a group of about 20 people with cameras eager to catch a glimpse of a whale or two.  Once on board we headed out through the Harbour guided by our host Biggles.  Sydney of course put on perfect weather for our outing which enabled us to soak up many of her sights including Luna Park, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Luna Park on the harbour’s edge The impressive Sydney Opera house best seen from the water Biggles’ voice could be heard in the background as we cruised towards the heads, sharing a bit of history of Sydney and about the whales themselves. During this time of year the humpback whales are making their way south, and sightings of mothers with their newborn calves can be had. This leg of their journey is a little slower than usual so [...]

Work and travel? 10 pros and cons of freelancing on the road

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

While Sarah and I managed to accumulate a small pile of cash from selling everything we owned before leaving on our nomadic adventure, we knew we were going to have to work and travel if we wanted to do this for the long haul. Not only did we need to cover our travel expenses, but we also had two mortgages to service, and the rental income didn’t cover the repayments. When we got to Thailand, about five weeks into our trip, I managed to get a job teaching English in Chiang Mai. It was only 16 hours a week which gave me plenty of time to explore the area, but the pay was ordinary by Australian standards at $US9 per hour. That meant while I made enough to enjoy living in northern Thailand, it didn’t even come close to covering the mortgage repayments back home. It was during our two month stay in Chiang Mai that Sarah started working online as a freelance writer. She signed up to a couple of freelancing websites and began applying for writing jobs. Despite having no experience as a writer, in no time at all she managed to acquire several clients via Upwork. Initially [...]

Things You Should Consider as a Responsible Traveler / EcoTourist in 2018

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

We’ve all seen the obnoxious tourists waddling out of Subway in some beautiful, ancestral city. Chances are, if you catch us on the right day, we’ve all been that tourist.

There is, however, a revolution in tourism that is really starting to take off. A whole new way of thinking which prioritizes responsible travel, and considers the impact we have on the communities and environments we visit abroad.

The negative impacts of tourism are usually pretty clear to the traveler feeling particularly perceptive. But ecotourism is the belief that travel should be ultimately beneficial to both the tourist and the host country.

There is a balance we should all try to find while traveling: remain safe but also truly experience the local scene. Make ripples, but not a splash. Take only memories, leave only footprints. The following are four key things to consider for those looking to travel responsibly in 2018.

10 awesome things to do in Melbourne

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

There are so many things to do in Melbourne it would literally take days to write a single article. So instead I’m going to choose 10 of the best that I believe you should do if you ever visit my home town. Melbourne has now won ‘The World’s Most Liveable City’ award, presented annually by The Economist, five years in a row. That’s an incredible achievement by anyone’s standards, but it’s easy to see why. No matter what you’re into there’s something for you to do, like dining in first-class restaurants, attending a wide range of sporting events in world-class stadiums, taking in a play or musical in gorgeous theatres, or experiencing masterpieces in our amazing arts precinct. There is of course just one problem with Melbourne, it’s expensive. There’s no escaping it, you’ll need a little money in your pocket to fully appreciate this city. But by using services like Couchsurfing, the free inner city trams, and free events that can be found at That’s Melbourne, you can definitely have a great time without breaking the bank.

As many a traveler will tell you, taking an overnight train in Asia is quite an adventure, one that I have always found to be enjoyable and something to look forward to.Overnight trains are my favorite means of covering long distances because they're usually friendlier to my budget and more comfortable than taking long road trips being cramped in a small car or bus.The other advantage is that you get to stretch your legs out and get a good night’s sleep in exchange for just a little bit more than you would pay for a hostel or budget hotel.

Cruising has become one of the biggest trends in travel recently, though have you ever considered going on a canal barge cruise?

Canal barging is a unique form of slow travel popular throughout Europe, especially in France, Italy, Scotland and Ireland. The size of the canal dictates the size of the barge, but the maximum number of guests on board usually ranges from 4-12 passengers.

[越南] 新咖啡巴士攻略

by Queenie @ Eatwalkfeel

三星期的Grad trip我撥了十一天的時間在越南,總共去了五個城市,關於越南我遊記在我的Blog也著墨不少,陸續也有網友問我怎樣去我介紹的城市。所以小妹就大膽出一個越南交通攻略給大家參考,如有錯誤,請指教! 越南的版圖是長型的,兩個大城市,胡志明市和河內分別位於南北兩端。計劃路線時可選由南至北或由北至南,如果由中部 (例如峴港)入境的話,建議向南或向北取捨,避免走回頭路。 小妹的上一站是暹粒,我從陸路入境到胡志明市,由於時間關係,只能北上至越南中部,然後從峴港飛回香港。我的路線如下: 胡志明市>美奈>大叻>(芽莊)>會安>峴港 越南國內穿梭各大城市的交通,有三種主要交通工具。 (一) 飛機  沒有選擇的原因 :內陸線主要是越南航空,查一下官網發現大叻飛峴港要2000多港元,便打消念頭。貴得太不合理,而且不是毎個機場都接近市區,的士錢或許足夠在越南吃法國菜。 (二) 火車  沒有選擇的原因 :不是毎一個城市都有鐵路連接,像美奈只有巴士連接,而且火車相比巴士貴很多。 (三) 巴士  最後選擇:連接市區到市區,如果酒店訂在附近的話就更方便,走一個街口就到巴士站,不用額外花的士錢。價錢平到難以置信,六小時的車程只需20港元。 越南本地巴士公司很多,其中新咖啡 (舊名:The Sinh Cafe,新名:The Sinh Tourist) 在遊客中口碑不錯。新咖啡來回的城市很多,經常有越南人同車,小妹來往五個城市全是乘新咖啡。 近年有不少新的巴士公司務起,小妹未乘過就不予辦論。我總共乘了五次新咖啡的巴士,真心推薦給大家。新咖啡毎一次都準時出車,到達時間也準時,由大叻下山更提早了半小時到達芽莊。而且,毎一程車都會派支裝水和濕紙巾,服務合格。 新咖啡使用說明書 買票: 車票分兩種,Open bus和單程票。Open bus可以一次過購買將會用的車票,我不建議使用,因為購買時就要選擇毎一程的出發時間,出發前一天又要去確認位置,太麻煩了!單程票可以上官網訂購或直接去各城市門市購票,官網可以用信用卡付款,門市只收現金。根據我的觀察,除了芽莊、會安兩個中轉站乘客較多,其他路線乘客都不多,出發前一天購票就能確保位置。我建議到門市才購票,令行程保留彈性。 時間表:可以上官網看看,不是毎一個城市都有直接來回,例如想從峴港去美奈就一定要經會安和芽莊。 巴士型號:有分Sitting和Sleeping兩種,跟車程長短沒有關係。Sitting那種像香港的小巴,可坐 6-12人。Sleeping就等於Sleeper bus,座位是上下床舖,上車要除鞋,腳底有空間可以放隨身行李 (有多少空間視乎你的身高!),這種Sleeper bus睡著比坐著舒服。 溫馨提示:巴士準時出發,所以一定不可以遲到。坐Sitting bus的話提早15分鐘到車站,建議問一問職員巴士到達了沒有,早到可以先選位置。坐Sleeping bus的話則要提早30分鐘到車站,因為需要劃位,不能自選位置。 膳食安排:乘長途巴士難免會肚餓或人有三急,司機也不例外。司機會在路上餐廳或補給站停車,餐牌上有什麼就吃什麼,有飯或越式法包或咖啡。由於司機多數不發一言,自行下車就買他需要的,如果擔心停留時間的話,可以先問問他要何時上車才點餐,最好坐司機附近,看看他眼色就不用太擔心。即使不想吃東西,也要全部人下車休息,這習慣只適用於Sitting bus。 希望大家覺得資料有用,下次分享乘新咖啡過夜巴士的經驗!    [越南] 過夜巴士 (芽莊->會安)

How to Book the Cheapest Hotels in 2018 (Which Match Your Travel Style Perfectly)

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

One of my biggest pieces of advice for booking a hotel has always been to ask yourself why. And the answer should be beyond the obvious “I need a place to stay for the night”.

Because millions of people are booking into hotels every night. But how many of them are actually getting their choice right?

The solution? Nustay; a new hotel search engine which has 1.2 million hotels at rates cheaper than any other online booking site (seriously). And, by crunching data about your interests, it matches you with hotels which reflect your travel style.

斯里蘭卡屬於南亞地區,位於印度以南,給人的印象是炎熱。友人聽說我準備帶外套和長褲時,表現驚訝。其實,斯里蘭卡的中南部是高山,氣候清涼,盛產世界知名的鍚蘭紅茶,山上出產的茶葉更是供應給國際茶葉品牌,例如立頓Lipton。由斯里蘭卡第二大城市,聖城康提 (Kandy) 駕車上山至英國小鎮 努沃勒埃利耶 (Nuwara Eliya),需時約3.5小時,沿途的山區就是茶園最集中的地方,大大小小的茶園遍佈山頭,基本上毎一個山坡都種滿了茶榭,排列整齊。 上到山上就明白為何要帶保暖衣服了,因為Nuwara Eliya 城鎮海拔高度1,868米。雖然參觀的茶園海拔沒有那麼高,但不竟身處山中,陰晴不定,不時下起毛毛雨,山谷的風夾雜雨點迎面吹來真的有點冷。 Mackwoods 茶園是斯里蘭卡最大的茶園,雖然這山頭有不少遊客較少的茶園,但還是選了Mackwoods,因為它有一介紹茶葉的博物館和品茶茶室。Mackwoods大的令我驚訝,進出Mackwoods的前後約一小時車程,路過的山頭全都有Mackwoods招牌。   Mackwoods開放的觀光區很集中,進入大門後,就是茶室和商店的英式木屋。木屋的斜對面有一工廠,這就是所謂博物館了。個人喜歡先認識茶葉,再去品茶。茶廠不可自行參觀,要先到木屋的詢問處先找導遊帶tour,tour是跟其他遊客一組的,不定時開始,不另收費很大方。 我們的導遊是一個「採茶女」打扮的中年女士,以英文講解茶園運作。由茶樹的種植收割、如何採茶葉、茶葉製作過程到茶葉品級分類,她都仔細解釋,非常專業。導遊解釋茶葉製作過程時會帶我們參觀Mackwoods的工廠,可以看到不同過程所用的機器,例如烘乾、發酵等等。 茶主要分為未經發酵和發酵茶。未經發酵的茶又稱為White tea,如煎茶、綠茶、龍井等,white tea是最貴,營養價值最高的,通常取茶葉Bud的部分。而發酵茶又稱為Black tea,即是香港奶茶常用的紅茶或發酵最久的黑茶,茶葉發酵得愈久茶色愈深。導遊解釋發酵的過程中營養如茶多酚會流失,所以較次等的茶葉才會用作製造發酵茶,所以發酵茶一般都教未發酵茶貴。茶葉的檔次以茶葉切得多碎來分別,完整的茶葉最貴,Whole leave的錫蘭多以OP (orange pekoe) 標示,茶呈橙色。其次就是 Broken leaf,錫蘭茶包多是 BOP和 F BOP。檔次最差是碎得像粉的茶葉,Fannings的標示為 BOPF,這種茶因為表面面積大,茶色會很深。 了解過茶的知識,我們入去木屋內試茶。先找座位後,侍應便問我們要幾位茶,等一回茶就到了。試茶是免費的,我覺得這一點很大方,後來我們想再來一杯,他們給了我們一大壺。只嘆茶難免有點單調,所以茶室賣有蛋糕,只有朱古力一款口味,口感像英式Brownie,蛋糕和茶簡直是絕配。蛋糕毎件LKR250,我們毎人吃了兩件當午餐。茶室有分戶外和戶內座位,戶外可飽覽滿山茶榭的美景,戶內雅座裝飾像英國小木屋,各有特色!     山上的天氣時晴時陰,幸運地試茶後陽光出來了。Mackwoods停車場旁有一個「打卡位」平台可以跟大字牌合照。不過我嫌跟茶榭不夠親近,想跟茶榭迎距離接觸。在平台旁有一條樓梯往下走,可以走進茶榭叢裡。山谷下有一條水河,意外地發現Mackwoods有水力發電站,不過時間有限我沒有走下去看。   茶室旁就是手信店,個人認為要買 BOP等次的茶葉的話,超級市場更便宜更多選擇,不用在 Mackwoods 買。如果想買較高級的茶葉,可以在 Mackwoods 買,不竟大茶園質素有保證,不用再到處找好的茶葉店,而且包裝很華麗。 離開 Mackwoods 後我們繼續上山,向 Nuwara Eliya 前進,沿路仍然有很多茶樹,很多都立了 Maakwoods 的牌,令人依依不捨。

Dear Female Travelers: Reasons Knixwear Is the Greatest Travel Underwear You’ll Ever Own!

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Forget your passport, when it comes to travel, appropriate underwear is one of the most essential things. (Don’t actually forget your passport, but I’m sure you get what I meant!)

But traditional cotton underwear isn’t always the best option for travel – they’re slow drying and they absorb moisture meaning cotton isn’t the most comfortable or hygienic thing to wear for extended periods of time.

Underwear might be one of those things you don’t think twice about, but purchasing a pair for the practicalities of travel can make or break a trip. There are plenty of options out there for travel-specific underwear, but when it comes to being specifically designed for women, Knixwear is a Canadian based brand you should know.

The following are seven reasons why Knixwear is the greatest travel underwear you’ll own. But the biggest reason? The amount of confidence you gain from wearing them, for all the reasons below.
