I recently stayed at a very unique, funky hotel… right in the middle of London’s Heathrow Airport! Meet YotelAir London Heathrow, an airport hotel that at once elevates the typically boring and soulless airport hotel into something fun and interesting, yet keeps the whole experience to a budget. Yotel has actually been described as “Heathrow sleeping pods,” and you know I love a good sleeping pod experience (like during my layover in Iceland), so I had to check it out.
Oh February, you and your mercury in retrograde sure messed me up. As you may have noticed, or seen on my Instagram stories, my website crashed in February. Actually, it was hacked. There is a looong back story that is way too technical to bore you with here, but some complications meant it took three weeks to get the site back up. So first of all, I apologize if this inconvenienced you (especially those of you using my guides for gluten free travel!). Second of all, thank you for everyone who has messaged or comment or given your support!
We’re nearing the end of January and it’s been crickets on this blog. I’ve been hard at work behind the scenes, though, in more ways than one. This is what I got up to in January – on Endless Distances and beyond. Plus some changes to my monthly recap template!
I, for one, am cozying up at home for the rest of 2019. No more travels for me, but lots of time to reflect on the year that was. Last year I wrote a 2018 travel favorites blog post, reviewing the best (and worst) moments of the year. It was so fun to write, and a big hit… a lot of you ended up writing your own posts or sharing your own travel favorites in the comments!
If it can fit in a stocking, it can fit in a carry on! That’s why stocking stuffers are the ideal gifts for travel lovers. Chances are, if your loved one is a travel lover like me, they don’t want big, bulky, or expensive items for Christmas. Personally I prefer to spend my time (and money) up in the air, seeing the world, and material possessions just drag me down. I think this is a pretty common quality among those of us with wanderlust! Check out these stocking stuffers for travelers as you’re shopping this year.
Quebec City is a magical place, no matter the season… but it’s particularly special in winter. You can trust me on that one. I just got back from my fourth trip to Quebec City and have now experienced it in all seasons! We wondered at the flutterings of the season’s first snowfall, bathed outdoors in a Nordic spa, and cuddled up inside with hot mulled cider. As I discovered, there are plenty of things to do in Quebec City in winter.
This was my fourth visit to Quebec City, a place that has long had a special spot in my heart. How can I describe Quebec City to you? At the top of a steep hill, you find yourself in a pocket of fairytale French architecture, surrounded by cobbled streets and castles. But are there gluten free Quebec City options, or is this a fairytale you’ll go hungry in?
I’ll let you in on a little secret… my absolute favorite thing to do in London is explore Borough Market! Not least because there are gluten free Borough Market stalls galore.
