Today is the day! hidden europe 48 is published. One of the articles features the small town of Redu in southern Belgium. It's a great piece by Paul Scraton, editor-in-chief of 'Elsewhere - A Journal of Place'. #travel #magazine #Belgium
Tucked away in the hill country of southern Belgium is the town of Redu. On the face of it, Redu is much the same as other towns in the Ardennes region. Except that, in Redu, the printed word is especially cherished and valued. Paul Scraton invites us to join him as he explores Belgium's premier 'book town'.

In the north-west corner of Brittany, an area known as Finistère, dozens of ancient chapels attest to the erstwhile importance of faith in the region. Celtic myth and Catholic belief underpin life and community in this remote part of France.

What do Katherine Mansfield, the Ile de Bendor and Bandol have in common? Find out in our latest 'Letter from Europe'. #France
It's hard to say no to pastis. Especially on the island of Bendor, off the south coast of France, where pastis is the preferred drink at almost any time of day. If you are really bold, you can get away with ordering a glass o...

Happy New Year! While you were sitting at home finishing the mince pies, we have been flying. It makes a change from trains and ferries and - let's face it - if you want to reach Lesotho from Berlin, one has little choice nowadays but to fly for at least part of the journey. Enjoy our latest "Letter from Europe"! #travel #flying
Flying is rarely a bundle of fun. Even leaving aside the generally horrid nature of airports with their essential (but inevitably unpleasant) security checks, modern aviation practice makes few concessions to the poetics of t...

We have never really thought much about job titles. But William Faden had an enviable job title. He was 'geographer to the King' - the monarch in this case being George III of England. If you are going to be a geographer, job titles don't come any grander than that. And more than 200 years on, his 1812 pilot guide to Spanish inshore waters is still a magnificent read. Enjoy our latest "Letter from Europe" which looks at the history of the island of Cabrera, off the south coast of Mallorca. #Spain #Cabrera #travel
In the summer of 1812, while Napoleon's Grande Armée was storming east towards Moscow, William Faden's publishing house in London was busy putting the finishing touches to a new guide to Spanish inshore waters. Among the area...

Kosovo has been on our mind lately. In the flatlands of the Kosovo Plain, temperatures plummeted this month to below minus 20 degrees. Enjoy our latest 'Letter from Europe'. #Kosovo #Ferizaj #travel
There's a touch of the wild west about Ferizaj. It has a frontier feel. When the English traveller Edith Durham travelled through Kosovo in 1908, she stopped just briefly in Ferizaj, remarking that this was a community create...
