One part of my travel goals this year is to explore not only a bit more of Europe (Scandinavian countries are calling my name), but also more of the United States and Canada (I haven’t been west of Toronto!). For a little travel inspiration, I found these chic books by The New York Times – ‘36 hours’ is dubbed the point of reference for the weekend traveller with tips on what to see, do, places to stay, shop and even where to eat – all rounded up by travel vet Barbara Ireland (who has been working at the Times for years). Not to mention the beautifully bound books make the perfect coffee table accessory as I plan from my couch.
