    When you think of Swedish traditions, what comes to mind might be fika, lagom or Midsummer’s Day celebrations… but the country has another unique tradition that you may not have heard of: kulning, otherwise known as cow-calling.  Earlier this spring, our podcast host Aimee White (@aimeefw) travelled to Stockholm to meet Susanne Rosenburg, a professor at the Royal College of…

    In the latest episode of the Rough Guides podcast, we’re exploring the idea of responsible photography – how we can be more mindful when photographing a particular place or a person.  As in the words of the famous Rabelais quote, we may travel to “Go to seek a great perhaps” – but when we come back, we want to remember…

    What do you picture when you think of adventure writing? Hair-raising journeys through Sub-Saharan deserts, discovering new cultures or ancient civilizations? It can be all of those things – and more. Adventure writing has the ability to transport you to the place you’re reading about: bringing it to life – from the unfamiliar script on a road…

    Would you consider travelling somewhere with no wi-fi or GPS? Or no mobile phone signal at all? How about living there?

    In 18th-century Louisiana, escapee African slaves would make a break for the bayous. Here they might encounter Native Americans and occasionally find asylum with them: two peoples who had in common a struggle for freedom from oppression. That this episode in history is remembered is in part thanks to the Black Masking Indians of New…

    Forget review sites and apps, local tips and even (whisper it) guidebooks – maybe the best way to find your perfect destination is to spit in a tube. Not just any tube, of course, but one you send to a genetic testing company, who will then analyse your DNA and tell you where in the…

    Galápagos. What do you picture when you hear those four syllables? Chances are it’s wildlife, from giant tortoises and marine iguanas to blue-footed boobies. And rightly so, for the animals on these islands, sitting in extreme isolation 1000km (600 miles) off the Ecuadorian coast, are genuinely spectacular. In fact, it was the so-called ‘tameness’ of…

    Stranded in the Mediterranean between Europe and North Africa, Malta has always attracted curious travellers. It has been colonised by everyone from the French to the Phoenicians, its culture, language and architecture shaped by many civilisations – but even more than this by the rocky land itself.
