In this modern age, you should be thankful for airlines that offer free peanuts, pretzels, and soda without charging you an arm and a leg. Unless of course you are referring to ever shrinking leg space, in which case, you are out of luck.
With most American carriers, even when you can get a real meal (as opposed to a “snack box”), what arrives is a far cry from anything other civilized cultures would call a “meal.”
But it’s not like that everywhere. In fact, many wonderful airlines are serving legitimate, easy-to-identify items, that aren’t reserved just for first and business class. Here are ten we’d happily dine on.
When Ilse Cornelissens and her husband Tim van Geloven opened Graanmarkt 13, a four-story multi-purpose complex designed by Vincent van Duysen, it hardly blended into the abandoned Antwerp square they chose as its home. The concept was simple: everything you love in one spot. Six years later, the space—which, from the ground up, consists of a Michelin-starred restaurant, an uber-chic concept boutique, a pop-up gallery space, and a hotel-style apartment for rent (previously home to the couple and their two children)—has revitalized the neighborhood and become Antwerp's most innovative and sought-after one-stop luxury shop. Here, Ilse shares a day's worth of her favorite places to eat, shop, and visit in Antwerp.
Sometimes living the high life is just a matter of knowing where you can get a killer cocktail and an amazing view. So all hail the roof bar. Whether it’s the top of a skyscraper or a relaxed terrace in the sun, there’s just something so right about kicking back with a cool drink and some altitude.
We’ve picked ten of the best places around the world to raise the bar.
If you’re looking for cool accounts to follow on Instagram, you might be surprised that indie boutiques are some of your best bets, not only for the tempting merchandise. Under-the-radar shops are stepping up and becoming less centered on product shots and becoming more curated to include art, editorials, runway shots, and images of real women sporting the fashion they sell, all while staying true to their core mission.
Below, see seven New York City boutiques whose feeds are nothing short of fabulous.

When it comes to travelling, we can't get enough of it. Wanderlust is in our genes. There's not a city in the world we don't want to visit at least once, and being female certainly isn't going to hold us back either. I learned so much from travelling alone as a woman—I even met The One—but there are definitely some places we'd recommend more than others. And before you plan your solitary adventure, here's what you need to know. Scroll down to see our top must-visit destinations for solo female travellers.
Spring may be tantalizingly close, but with the balmy breezes just outside our grasp, it’s time to consider making the annual spring-break pilgrimage to warmer climes. And we’re not talking Señor Frog’s and overcrowded beaches. If it’s sunny and secluded you’re after, you’ll have to go beyond the tourist hot spots and opt for locales that are just slightly more off the beaten path. Here, five alternate warm-weather getaways, from a bucolic hideaway in Cuba to a yoga retreat in Sri Lanka.
If you love Kauai, Hawaii, try Viñales, Cuba.

Pack incorrectly and even the best-laid travel plans can run amok when suitcase snafus come into play.
