Last month I wrote about how to travel with just a carry-on. I was impressed by how many of you shared your tips in the comments section (thank you!), and by some of the questions you asked on social media. One of them was about what kind of carry-on works best when you need a more structured bag. Today I’m going to answer that question with my Tumi Voyageur Super Leger International Carry-on review.
I’ve been spending a lot of time in Scotland lately. I’ve alluded to it here and there, but today I want to come clean. I’ve fallen in love, you see, and the man in question has a house in the Scottish Borders. We’re up there a lot, and in the past year I’ve discovered a part of the UK I never knew about. And it’s pretty amazing. If you want to know why, here are 5 days out in the Scottish Borders that will show you.
You can’t get more central than Soho. Right smack in the middle of London, the buzzing atmosphere and non-stop entertainment put it squarely in the heart of the city.

And to prove it’s not too good to be true, I’ve picked out 7 homes you never thought you could afford to stay in.

The London Restaurant Festival is on this month, and the city is buzzing with tasting menus and chef-hosted events. It’s an exciting time to be dining out, but if I can let you in on a little secret, I often prefer the understated side of London’s food scene. And since people always ask me what the best restaurants in London are, I thought I would take this opportunity to share my favorites.
Sometimes the best thing about London is how easy it is to get away. Don’t get me wrong—I love this city. But when I want to travel it’s incredibly convenient to do so. With train stations galore and roads leading all over Britain, weekend getaways from London are easy.

I always enjoy traveling, but when there’s food involved I love it. Food festivals are some of my favorite excuses to hop on a plane or train and immerse myself in local culinary culture. Which is why I’m excited to spend an autumn weekend in Wales at the annual Abergavenny Food Festival.
