“You don’t have to feel bad drinking this beer. It’s for the kids!” our tour guide told us as we sat in a pub in Brussels. And it’s true…sort of. I had my first introduction to the world of Belgian beer recently and it was eye opening. Get ready for high alcohol content, warmer temps, and blessed beers.
For the last five years, my go-to headphones for travel have been a pair of bright pink foldable over-ear ones. I recently took the Sudio Vasa Blå wireless in-ear earphones for a test drive to see if I could get similar sound quality for a fraction of the carryon bag space.
My friend and I were at the Globe Theatre in London, chatting about what our next plans would be for the day, when the British lady in front of us turned around and said “I don’t mean to eavesdrop but if you’re looking for somewhere cool to go, you should check out Gordon’s Wine Bar. It’s one of my favourite places.” I don’t know about you, but when a local recommends something to you and tells you that it’s one of their favourites, you listen.
By now you already know that travel pillows, eye masks, and portable phone chargers make great gifts for travellers. So this year I want to help you elevate your traveller’s style with gifts that are practical, useful, and beautiful.
