Historic Luxury, Northern Charm: Inside Swinton Park Hotel, Yorkshire

by Selene @ fork on the road

Deep in the North Yorkshire dales, set in 250 acres of forested parkland bordering the moors, is the Swinton Park Estate. As you drive through wrought-iron gates and catch a first glimpse of this striking ancestral home, complete with ivy-clad turrets and Gothic battlements, it’s easy to imagine you’ve stepped back in time. The building work for this handsome manor house began in the 1600s, although it wasn’t until the Cunliffe-Lister family bought the property in 1882 that Swinton Park began to take the castellated form you see today. Swinton Park opened as a luxury hotel in 2001, and since then it’s been busy carving out a name for itself as Yorkshire’s top country hotel. After extensive renovations, including a new restaurant and spa, how...

A Boat Trip on the Saigon River

I didn’t expect to love Ho Chi Minh City as much as I did. More than any other place, Vietnam seems to divide travellers and tourists: they either really love it, or really don’t, and Ho Chi Minh City is often at the forefront of that. Because of this polarisation, I entered the city thinking I probably wouldn’t love it instantly, but perhaps it would grow on me. I was totally wrong. I LOVE Ho Chi Minh City – or Saigon, as everyone still calls it. Forget about it growing on me, it took about five minutes to realise this city was right up our street. On our first night Tom and I arrived late and were tired. We popped out for “just one beer”...

How to Rack Up Manufactured Spend For Airline Miles Today we’ll be talking about how to create manufactured spend in order to meet minimum spend requirements and earn bonus airline miles on new credit cards.   Many cards will want you to spend $2000-3000 over a few months in order to earn bonus miles – sometimes the minimum spend will be even higher. This can seem a daunting challenge, but even those on a tight budget can achieve these minimum spend requirements with a little forethought.

SUITCASE Magazine | City Guide: Arequipa, Peru

by Selene @ fork on the road

Shadowed by three dramatic volcanoes, Arequipa’s setting is about as glorious as you can get. Much smaller than Lima and far less touristy than Cusco, Peru’s second-largest city has just as much cultural significance – and arguably  considerably more beauty. Arequipa’s centre gained UNESCO World Heritage status in 2000, and the city’s vistas, with the El Misti volcano looming behind, are magnificent. The iconic white baroque buildings are made from local white volcanic sillar rock and give the centre a grand and markedly European flavour. The city played a key role in Peru’s gastronomic renaissance and today is home to some of the country’s best restaurants, where you are encouraged to try national favourites such as alpaca and guinea pig, as well as the vast array of potato dishes....

The Vegan Guide To Staying Healthy On The Road

by Selene @ fork on the road

For backpackers, tourists, or anyone who travels for work, trying exotic new cuisines is one of the best things about travelling. Who wouldn’t be excited to try authentic empanadas in Mexico, steaming-hot street food in Vietnam, or a plate of fresh gnocchi in Italy? But if you don’t eat meat, fish, dairy or eggs, things can be more difficult. Though the vegan movement is growing quickly, in many countries meals still centre around animal products, and the very concept of veganism can be met with bewilderment. I’ve spent the past 15 months travelling through Latin America, Southeast Asia and Australasia, and have written extensively about my search for veggie-friendly food in each country I visit. During my travels I made the switch from vegetarianism...

The AO Show at the Saigon Opera House

by Mike @ Saigon For 91 Days

Built in 1897 by French architect Eugène Ferret, the Saigon Opera House is one of the most spectacular pieces of colonial architecture in the city. It’s worth visiting even if you’re not going to catch a performance, but we can recommend the AO Show, put on by the Luna Production Company.

Drinking Beer in Music City – Skip the Flip Flops

by James Sloate @ Five Star to Dive Bar

Who doesn't love Lake Tahoe, it's an incredibly beautiful place. The lake, mountains and lifestyle is undeniably one of the top places to visit in the world.

However, what this town is overrun by is white lazy ski bum douche mentally challenged stoned guys who work in the food service industry. I mean what the fuck is the issue with some of these servers and bartenders. Is Lake Tahoe near a college for imbedded stupidity? Oh that's right, it is, Sierra College.... where credits aren't transferable anywhere but to Healds......

Ho Chi Minh City: First Impressions & Motorbike Mania

Ho Chi Minh City: First Impressions & Motorbike Mania

by Wandering Meg @ Vanishing Balloons

As a newcomer to Ho Chi Minh city, I have to say – it’s a lot to take in. From the minute I stepped out of the airport, I realized this isn’t Paris or even Tokyo – it’s another beast entirely. To be honest, these first 48 hours have been hard on me. The traffic alone is the stuff of nightmares – my first morning I had to walk across a rotary to get to the Viettel cellphone store to buy a SIM card and was 60% sure I wouldn’t live to make it to the other side. I’ve probably seen more motorbikes

Marco Polo Tawainese Pizza

Just saying the word brings up dreamy utopian thoughts of Oompa Loompa’s dancing and singing, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, its Amore!” It’s simply “SALIVATION SALVATION!” There are so many fucking different types of Pizza in the world, it truly is like our universe, or my x wives mouth, never ending. The debate on what style of pizza is best is also endlessly debatable. However, a fact most people dont realize is Pizza didn’t originate in Italy. Ok Sloate, well where in the fuck did it?

SUITCASE Magazine | City Guide: Cusco, Peru

by Selene @ fork on the road

Deep in a highland valley in the South American Andes is the city of Cusco, Peru’s most popular travel destination. Once the beating heart of the mighty Incan Empire, today Cusco is a launchpad for tourists to explore the historic villages and relics of the Sacred Valley, most notably the “lost” city of Machu Picchu. But while the area surrounding Cusco offers a dizzying array of cultural excursions, treks and outdoor activities, the city itself is a joy to discover. Designed by the Incas in the shape of a puma, at Cusco’s centre is the splendid Plaza de Armas, around which labyrinths of colourful cobbled streets beckon for exploration. This is a city where ancient Andean history interweaves with colonial culture to create some...

Saigon at Night

by Mike @ Saigon For 91 Days

Once the sun sets, taking the suffocating heat with it, Saigon turns on the lights and lets down its hair. Students meet to play cards at coffee shops, the bars fill up with both locals and tourists, and the city's innumerable old lady brigades claim their habitual seats on the corners. Whether we were getting drunk at hotpot joints with brand new best-friends-ever, strolling along the canal with dozens of dog-walkers, or zipping around on scooters while the city lights blaze by, some of our best Saigon memories came at night.

Where To Eat Vegan Food In New York City

In recent years, even the most ardent meat-lovers would find it hard to ignore the rise of veganism. The most recent research estimates that six percent of Americans now follow a vegan diet — a staggering increase of 600% in just three years. While the idea that vegans just eat salad prevails among some, the notion that you can eat healthily and deliciously without animal products is catching on. The Big Apple is a great place to discover how versatile a vegan diet can be. So where should you eat vegan food in New York City? Just about anywhere!
