Food of Colombia [What to Eat and Where to Find It]

Mark Stewart Food, Travel Tips Leave a Comment

Prior to visiting the amazing country, we knew next to nothing about the cuisine in Colombia. It’s not often spoken of back home; even in the culinary world we’re used to. We assumed it would be much the same as what we experienced throughout Central America. Which, to be honest, fell a little flat after we left Mexico. Yet, many delicious treats surprised us on the other side of the Darien Gap. While this often deep-fried, meat and starch-loaded cuisine …

North Street Bristol Restaurants, Cafes and Pubs – Our Top Picks

Mark Stewart Food, Travel Tips Leave a Comment

Before arriving in Bristol, North Street was simply part of an address where we’d be housesitting for a month. It was a street on a map, a short walk from Spike island and the Bristol harbour. The homeowners had assured us that we’d have no issue finding a place to eat nearby. This turned out to be a bit of an understatement. As it turned out, there are dozens of restaurants on North Street, Bristol – all within 20 minutes …

The World’s Best Street Art Cities, According to Awesome Travellers

Mark Stewart Photography, Travel Stories, Travel Tips 6 Comments

We love street art. What began as mere curiosity, many years ago, soon became a deep appreciation, and occasional obsession. There’s something so impressive about artists pouring themselves into works that in all likelihood will be removed or destroyed. Brushed away like a Tibetan sand mandala. Even in those street art cities that are friendly towards the scene, even commissioned pieces often fall victim to some deplorable vandal. Aside from the more technical aspects, it’s simply a beautiful way to …

21 Unique and Fun things to do in Bucharest

Mark Stewart Travel Tips 2 Comments

Bucharest is one of those cities that doesn’t strike everyone the same. Though it’s been called “Little Paris” for over a century, it’s far from it; nor does it have the picturesque, polished architecture of Vienna.

The Best Things to do in Moldova

Mark Stewart Travel Tips 4 Comments

I’m going to be completely honest with you. Before arriving in Moldova, we knew almost nothing about the tiny country. Aside from hearing the name a handful of times, we hardly knew it existed. After having spent three weeks in the former Soviet republic, however, we’re amazed at how alluring and foreign it feels. Though it might not have as much to offer as its neighbours, there are still many wonderful and unique things to do in Moldova. What to …

Mark Stewart Travel Planning, Travel Tips Leave a Comment

Getting around Romania was said to be a pain in the ass. At least that’s what we had heard from several travellers we’d met before actually visiting ourselves. The truth is, Romania transportation is very well-connected, and the costs are quite reasonable. There was almost nowhere we couldn’t get to either by train, bus or shared vehicle. Even during those times when we wanted a little extra freedom, car rental prices in Romania were remarkably affordable. One thing to note …

Though our initial plan was to put together a nice packaged itinerary for you, we decided …

Experience a Moldova Wine Tour

Mark Stewart Travel Planning, Travel Tips Leave a Comment

It should come as no secret that Kylee and I are huge fans of wine. We’ve tasted wine all around the world, travelled to dozens of wine regions and have even worked in wineries. So during our time in Moldova, taking in some of the incredible wine the country is producing was a must. Moldova is a tiny, landlocked country in Eastern Europe. Wedged between Romania and the Ukraine, it’s rarely on the radar of most travellers. But whether you’re …
