A Compilation of the Best Travel Advice of 2014

New YorkCUPCAKE ATM IN NEW YORK CITY, USA -- writes Gail in Sydney, Australia -- This tip is a sweet bit of fun. When in New York City check out Sprinkles Cupcakes, 780 Lexington Avenue between 60th and 61st Streets near Bloomingdale's and choose a delicious cupcake from a 24-hour dispensing ATM. Yes, this pink cupcake ATM sits right next door to the actual Nelson's Sprinkles Cupcake bakery. Their yummy cakes and the experience made me smile all day long!

ParisGREAT LITTLE WINE BAR IN PARIS -- writes Mary in Paris, France -- Le Garde à Robe literally translates to walk-in closet and once you walk into this tiny wine bar you will see what a befitting name it is. This hybrid wine shop wine bar is located on a quiet street two blocks from the Louvre, just far enough off the beaten track to discourage every touristy Tom, Dick and Harry from going there but mercifully close for those blurry eyed art lovers who have just spent the afternoon in the Louvre. Given the limited space inside you might think the owners would dedicate all available space to seating, not so, wine bottles and wooden wine crates dominate the small floor plan. A wine centric menu is offered including cheese plates, meat platters, and little sandwiches. They have a wide selection of wines by the glass and should you taste something you really fancy, you can pick up a bottle for later from their to-go selection. Address: 41 rue de l'Arbre Sec, 75001 Paris.

New ZealandI ADORE NEW ZEALAND -- writes Jane in Brooklyn, New York -- I'd like to recommend a B&B in Dunedin on the South Island - The Albatross Inn is homey and quiet and I have stayed there twice. The rooms are comfortable and welcoming and the breakfasts wonderful. The location is an easy walk to the Tourist Information office with an incredible assortment of things to keep you busy both within Dunedin and the surrounding area. At the Albatross Inn, you are in a perfect location to take in Katherine Mansfield's home (up a bit of a hill - but lovely and well worth the climb). You are also only a 5-minute walk away from the Museum at the University of Otago, and you are not far from the Cadbury Chocolate factory. Take the factory tour and visit the gift shop at the end for a wonderful selection of all their candies at very reduced prices.

LondonJW RECOMMENDS TWO EXCELLENT PLACES TO STAY IN LONDON -- writes Therese in Southern Gulf Islands, Canada -- Thanks to your website my adult daughter and I recently stayed at the Goodenough Club in London and found it to be very good accommodations. Great location, safe and interesting - not far from Russell Square/British Museum. Big room, good staff and lovely breakfast buffet. I would also like to thank the person who recommended Hart House Hotel on your website - same trip, we found this hotel to be everything that was promised. Owner operated and very helpful staff, good sized room, beautifully kept and good breakfast facilities. Ask for a room at the back for a quiet stay. Love Journeywoman!

IstanbulRECOMMENDED HOTEL IN ISTANBUL -- writes Sally in Boston, USA -- Istanbul is packed with accommodations from the most luxe to humble hostels. For first or second time visitors the Old City, Sultanahmet, is a great choice to base yourself. There is so much to see, do and experience within an easy walk or tram ride in this vibrant neighborhood. One very good, centrally located, moderately priced choice is the intimate Hotel Djem with only twelve rooms and a lovely manager and staff. The Djemis a boutique hotel installed in a recently renovated wooden house just behind the Blue Mosque. The family that runs the hotel has been in the Carpet and Kilim business for years and the hotel is beautifully decorated with textiles. www.hoteldjem.com

SpainMUSEUM OF CHOCOLATE IN BARCELONA SPAIN -- Is there a woman in the world who doesn't love chocolate? This Barcelona chocolate museum is located in a former Sant Agusti monastery and it takes visitors on a journey through the origins of chocolate, its arrival in Europe, its medicinal properties and its nutritional value (but thankfully, talks little about calories). You can expect to see intricate chocolate sculptures, an assortment of antique chocolate-making equipment, a shop (yum) and on-site chocolate workshops for you, your girlfriends and any kiddies you have with you. Sounds like great fun to Journeywoman! Website: www.museuxocolata.cat/?lang=en.

MumbaiEXCELLENT LITTLE SHOP IN MUMBAI, INDIA -- writes Susan in Toronto, Canada -- I want to recommend a shop in Mumbai that I think other JourneyWomen will love. A flight attendant told me about it. It's called Impressions and it's located in the New Oberoi Shopping Arcade (shop #11). If you love extraordinary pashminas and scarves in every color of the rainbow, this woman-centered spot is for you. P.S. The manager is a female and she gave me advice on everything from what is appropriate for a woman to wear in India to how to find the closest bathroom.
