A Journeywoman European Travel Tip Round-Up

Amsterdam, The Netherlands...

AwesomeThe Museum of Bags and Purses describes itself as the 'world's foremost bag collection.' Housed in an historic canal house in the center of Amsterdam, it offers 500 years of history of the Western ladies bag. The museum began as the private collection of Hendrikje Ivo, who collected bags for over 35 years. Today, some of the 'goodies' displayed include a Versace evening bag (1997), a French goat's leather bag (16 C.) plus a silk bridal purse (circa 1725. Whether you're a historian or a fashionista, this museum would be a fun stop. P.S. You can also enjoy an afternoon cream tea in the museum's cafe but you must remember to reserve your spot ahead of time. Website:

Milan, Italy...

Milan is often known as the 'Fashion Capital' and the city offers everything a fashion victim can desire. The best area to spot the most famous brands is the so-called 'Quadrilatero della Moda', comprising Via Montenapoleone, Via della Spiga and Via S. Andrea. Even if you don't plan any shopping (everything is hugely expensive), the streets are lovely and the shops beautiful, especially around Christmas time when the shop-windows display the best of Italian creativity. For a special treat, make a stop at Pasticceria Cova for a coffee or a drink at one of the most exclusive café's in Milan where it's not unusual to spot celebrities.

Dublin, Ireland...

Dublin is great!Kelly's Hotel in South Great Georges St/Fade Street is female-friendly accommodation. Reasonably-priced boutique hotels with great locations are hard to come by in any city which is why this is such an excellent Dublin find. Kelly's Hotel is situated in one of the city's trendiest areas, The Creative Quarter, so-called because of its close proximity to Dublin's coolest restaurants, bars and boutiques. Look out for special offers on their website:

London, England...

pus = yumI am often asked, 'Is it OK for women to go alone into a British pub'. My answer is nearly always yes. British pubs are different from bars in other parts of the world which are often men only or dominated by men. Here in London many pubs provide quality food as well as drink. One of my favorites is The Dove, a 17th century pub on the River Thames with the shortest bar in London. Check out their menu at: P.S. Charles II romanced and dined his mistress Nell Gwynne at a public house on this exact site.

Florence, Italy...

I love scarvesMy favorite Florence gift items are scarves, linens, journals and stationery - all easy to tuck into your suitcase. You can buy inexpensive scarves and shawls in the markets or off vendors' street carts. There's a lovely scarf shop called BIVA, at Via Dell'Ariento 8-10/r, in the San Lorenzo market district. Keep a scarf handy if you're wearing a sleeveless top and are planning to visit a church. Many Italian churches require women to cover their shoulders (and knees). Btw, you rarely see Italian women in shorts. In warm weather, capris or below-the-knee cotton skirts or dresses are good choices.
