This Month's Hot Deals


A Compilation of the Best Travel Advice of 2014

Edited by Evelyn Hannon

Every year we received hundreds of pieces of advice from our members worldwide. From these, each month we pick the best 12 travel tips to include in our Journeywoman Newsletter. Then, at the end of the year we cut all those tips down to the best 25 for you to bookmark and keep. There's interesting places to sleep, places to eat and spots to shop - this list will come in so handy as you explore new destinations in the coming twelve months.

ParisMY FAVORITE HOTEL IN PARIS -- writes Lorraine in Belleair, USA - Grand Hotel De Champaigne is my favorite hotel in Paris. Its just off Rue de Rivoli and near the Seine in the 1st arrondissement. It is just steps away from three metro stops. An easy walk to the Louvre, Notre Dame and the Left Bank. There is everything you would need to meet your needs within minutes. This hotel is not easily found, but it is worth seeking it out. It is hidden behind the major avenues. I prefer a balcony room where I can sit and look out on the rooftops of Paris. Their breakfast is a little pricey. Within steps are much less expensive options.

TorontoBEST INDIAN FOOD IN TORONTO -- writes Marilyn in Toronto, Canada -- I'd like to recommend Bukhara Grill, a relative new addition to our city's dining scene. They serve some of the best Indian food I've had outside of India, including a number of dishes I'd never seen on an Indian menu before - including the Kashmiri naan, a deliciously crisp, thin and buttery bread enclosing a filling of fruit and nuts that I will order forever. It's clean and comfortable with white linen tablecloths and napkins, and a good selection of beers and wines. P.S. I'm told that Monday is the chef's volleyball night, so perhaps Tuesday - Sunday might be a better choice to visit. Address: 2241A Bloor Street West. Runnymede subway station.

LondonTEA AT THE BRITISH MUSEUM IN LONDON, ENGLAND -- When visiting a museum there is only so much information a traveler can take in at a time. We love the fact that at the British Museum there is an oasis where one can go, enjoy a cup of tea and just relax. The British Museum's Court Restaurant overlooks the magnificent 19th-century Reading Room. Their afternoon tea menu features sandwiches, scones and cream, and a selection of pastries. There's also a Champagne Tea, and a Viennese Tea with coffee and traditional Demel chocolate cake. Website: www.britishmuseum.org

IndiaGREAT FILM ABOUT INDIA -- Even if you never travel to India, I recommend the film, 'The Lunch Box.' Saajan, a Mumbai office worker nearing retirement, is delivered the wrong lunch by a dabbawala. Young housewife Ila had intended it for her emotionally indifferent husband. Not only is the story a lovely one but you get to see Mumbai in the background and learn more about 'dabbawalas', the men who deliver these home cooked meals from Indian wives to their worker husbands.

TokyoSAVE MONEY IN TOKYO -- writes Sandra in Tokyo, Japan -- For the absolute best deal in Tokyo, purchase the GRUTTO Pass. GRUTTO is actually 'Gu-ru-to', which means to 'go around'. It is a coupon book that gets you into over 50 museums/zoos/aquariums for free, and many others at a discount. Pay 2000 yen ($US20) for the booklet and it can be used for exactly two months. Especially great in the really humid summer or the cold months of winter. Visit only 2-3 locations to pay off your pass. There is an equivalent pass in the Osaka/Kyoto region as well. Click here

RigaRIGA, LATVIA FOOD MARKET -- writes Kirsten in Los Angeles, USA -- Did you know that Riga is home to one of the largest food markets in Europe? Imagine! Over 80,000 people visit every day. You can pick up local delicacies like smoked fish, country bread, cheese and honey. The five halls of the market were originally built as airplane hangars. Today, the Riga Central Market is listed as a UNESCO Global Heritage site. Website: www.rct.lv/en/

BrusselsA DELICIOUS SQUARE IN BRUSSELS, BELGIUM -- writes Marilyn in Montreal, Canada -- I have been to Brussels many times and one of my favorite stops is Place du Grand Sablon. This charming city square is beautiful and houses many cafés , chocolate and pastry shops and antique stores. Café Vieux Saint Martin is a must whenever I go to Brussels. This is where I get my Dover sole fix! This café/ bistro is expensive but worth the treat. There are three wonderful chocolate shops in the square - Wittamer, is both a outstanding pastry and chocolate shop where you can have a cappuccino and a most delicious sweet, Pierre Marcolini, and of course Godiva. On Saturday and Sunday, there is an antique market and the square is busy with local people who enjoy eating, walking and shopping in Place du Grand Sablon.
