The Five Bells Inn, Brabourne (near Ashford), Kent: hotel review

Cosy and slightly bonkers rooms (in a good way), a welcoming bar and scrumptious food make this pub with rooms an ideal base for exploring Romney Marsh and the North DownsThis must be the most eccentric room I’ve slept in: everything’s oversized, slightly mad or both. One side of the fireplace is taken up by a framed floor-to-ceiling black-and-white photo of sculpted Renaissance bottoms, while on the other a leopard-print chair almost reaches the ceiling. There are toiletries on a huge brass tray by the freestanding bath, a sunburst mirror, some modern wallpaper and lots of exposed brick, all reflected in another mirror – gilt-framed and two metres high. Only the loo, behind a door in the corner, is reassuringly normal. Continue reading...Original link

How to visit Mil Cascadas in Mexico

MIL CASCADAS, also known as Las Granadas, in the state of Guerrero, México is a series of waterfalls and pools on the Granados river. Mil Cascadas means “1000 waterfalls” and it’s not an exaggeration. The falls and pools drop into the river, and the water is chilly year-round. The best way to visit it is with a tour or guide company. They will guide you to rappel 100 feet down the waterfalls before jumping into several other pools for a swim and will show you around the many water caves. It’s not a very populated place yet, and it can still be seen in its pristine natural state. How to get there Mil Cascadas is about 40 minutes away from the town of Taxco, Guerrero, and about 1 hour and 40 minutes away from the city of Cuernavaca. It’s recommended that you book a tour or guide to take you there....

Countries most accepting of migrants

Migrating to a different country, especially if it’s because you have to (safety, money reasons, etc.) and not just because you feel like trying something new, is always a stressful situation. You’re somewhere new, where you don’t know anyone and where you suddenly have to try and make a living, most times without knowing whether you’ll find a job or a sustainable situation. And if the country’s inhabitants or government are not happy with you being there, everything’s worse. That’s what’s happening in Europe — many of the countries who are receiving the higher number of immigrants are among the least-accepting countries for migrants, according to a new research from Gallup. The guys at Statista created this chart to visualize the results of the research. More like this: Mapped: the most common jobs held by immigrants in the US Original link

Shadow of Monte Rosa

SOMEONE ON THE TRAIN from Annecy in France asked me where I was heading. “Vercelli?” he said with a sense of disbelief. “Why would anyone go there? All you’ll find is rice fields.” “Uh,” I replied, not entirely sure and on the defensive, “apparently it’s beautiful. And I’ll be spending most of my time in the Alps. In a small town called Alagna.” He looked at me with a mixture of disgust and pity. “Forget the sleepy villages,” he said. “You should come to my town. Rimini. You’ll find much better party there.” It’s not a party I’m looking for, I wanted to respond. Instead, I smiled and turned to look at the scenery slipping past the window. The truth was I actually had very little idea what to expect in this remote region of Italy. A cursory Google search a few days prior had told me Alagna was a commune...
