My brief visit to Melaka mostly revolved around a tourism conference, but I had just enough time to wander the street food stalls and celebrate Deepavali with locals, famous Malaysian singers and even the prime minister. Here is a short taste of what the city is like. Look out for more videos in the coming weeks […]

When my sister and I were planning our trip through Southeast Asia, we used a mix of websites to book the hotels we stayed in, including Hostelworld, Hotels.com and eventually Agoda. At the time, I didn’t find one website that I felt really suited every stay and instead bounced between who had the best selection […]
I’m lucky that my seasonal job allows me to travel, but it’s always difficult to fit in “fun time” on a work trip. My recent jaunt to California was no different. I arrived into San Francisco on a balmy, overcast afternoon and, being the intrepid traveler I am, took BART into the city. I only […]
I love writing about travel products, especially between this blog and my work on Her Packing List. So when my friend Brooke sent me a Speakeasy Travel Scarf as a Christmas present, I was thrilled. My friends Beth and Randy (you may know their blog, Beers and Beans) started the company, inspired by travel goods […]
As I reach five years of working part to almost full time as a freelance writer, I’m constantly asked how to get started in the industry. In all honesty, I’m never really sure what to answer, as it’s equal parts hard work and knowing the right people. So I’ve asked a few of my travel […]
One of my few vices that I fully indulge when traveling is visiting breweries, along with art museums and street art. My first attempt of the trip was thwarted when I didn’t want to wait 45 minutes for a table at 21st Amendment Brewery. Instead, I tried my luck at signing up for a tour […]
You can eat Thai food almost anywhere in the world, but it’s nothing like having the real deal. My experiences in Southeast Asia really blew me away in terms of what kind of cuisine I fell in love with. Some of my favorite eats of the year were dishes I wouldn’t have tried back home. […]
I was lucky to have spent enough time in Australia that fell in line with the country’s best events. There was always something going on in Sydney, whether it was Sculptures by the Sea at Bondi Beach or the Rocks Aroamas Festival. Here are a few of my favorites that you should make a point […]
When visiting the ethnic neighborhoods of big cities, it can sometimes feel more like Epcot than a real place where real people live. For example, there aren’t many Italians left in New York’s Little Italy, but there are plenty of restaurants claiming authenticity. I had the same reservations about San Francisco’s Chinatown. But it was […]
Over the last nearly four years that I’ve been offering the Travel Writing Round Ups, I’ve been asked about why I started them. It began as a way to show that there are travel writing opportunities that pay, not just the Huffington Post “pay for exposure” model. I’ve received a lot of great feedback (and […]
My four years living in Charleston meant I never went to any other beaches. And why would I? I could be laying on the white sand of Sullivan’s Island within fifteen minutes of leaving my house. So I missed out on trips to South Carolina’s other beaches like Hilton Head Island. The family friendly island […]
This post brought to you by Puerto Rico, The All-Star Island. The content, photos and opinions expressed below are that of Caroline in the City. Puerto Rico wasn’t really on my radar in terms of places to travel, but last year my family wanted to fit in one last family vacation before we all got […]
