Reviews / Airline

As the last town before the border with Scotland, Newcastle might not be considered a “city” but its international airport does provide some quality connections from Northern England to the rest of Europe and beyond.


Newcastle International Airport is a one-terminal, one-runway airport that may seem small and unassuming from the outside, but, once inside, travelers have a plethora of restaurants and shops in which to pass the time before leisurely walking to one of the few departure gates.


If you’re not expecting a meal on your departing flight, grab a “meal deal” at Boots (a pharmacy/convenience store) which includes a main (e.g., a sandwich or salad), a side (e.g., a bag of chips or fruit) and a drink.


Other shops include WHSmith (four total shops both before and after the security check), Namco for gamers, the typical duty-free shop and an Aerospa where you can book a beauty treatment or massage in advance of your arrival to the airport and enjoy it before you depart.


When you’re hungry and have time to kill, grab a seat at one of six restaurants, including Bar 11, The Beer House, Gregg’s Bakery, Burger King, Cabin for cocktails or The Naked Deli for a healthy snack.


NCL’s semi-new and efficient mobile app lets travelers reserve parking spaces before they arrive to the airport. App users can also take advantage of occasional lounge offers.


A few of the airlines that serve NCL are easyJet, KLM, Eurowings, Air France, British Airways Ryanair and Aer Lingus.

Seek Wellbeing in Greece

The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more.

New Lounge Wear from Cravings by Chrissy Teigen

With the cold weather coming and the long winter months ahead, it's time to start investing in some cozy loungewear — whether you buy it for yourself, add it to your holiday wish list or buy it for your loved one. Nowadays, loungewear is so popular and in demand with everyone working from home; there are so many different brands and types to choose from, but a new one just hit the shelf. Chrissy Teigen is known for many things, specifically her cookbook Cravings.

A Taste of Greece

Prepare your taste buds for the trip of a lifetime in Greece. About 100 Greek products — from wines, cheese and fruits to honey and oils — earned a Protected Designation of Origin from the European Union, and the country’s most beloved dishes include Greek Choriatiki salad, tzatziki, souvlaki and moussaka, with its layers of eggplant, potato, minced meat and bechamel. And those are only a few of the many highlights.
