Globalista travel reports are your perfect travel companion. Like a trusted friend they outline only what you need to know for any given destination

Globalista bypasses all of the time-consuming research required before any holiday or short break and, in one report, lists out and recommends the best of the best, from hotels and restaurants to shops and museums.

They don’t only cover the obvious choices but also include the hidden gems and insider recommendations on cities, ski resorts and regions throughout Europe and beyond, from Damascus to Svalbard, Kabul to Kyrgyzstan, Houston to Whistler. Already covering 170+ destinations, over the next year Globalista will cover a further 100 cities and regions.

This is why Spear’s is proud to partner with Globalista: we both believe in enabling our readers to get the most out of their lives, in travel as in everything else.

As part of this partnership, Spear’s readers and visitors to spearswms.com can download for free Globalista MiniGuides; keep coming back here to see the latest ones on offer or sign up here to receive automatic news about them.

A selection of MiniGuides

Vilnius
Lithuania used to be the largest country in Europe, stretching, under the rule of Grand Duke Vytautas in 1430, from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea (a feat achieved, incidentally, not by conquest but by inclusiveness and diplomacy).  Lithuania was also a Soviet Republic for half a century, and Vilnius, its capital, wears on its sleeve the evidence of just how far the country’s come since independence in 1991 (and joining the EU in 2004). After much restoration, Vilnius is back to being its ridiculously beautiful self.

Mallorca
It’s a cliché but it’s true: Mallorca really does have everything. The majestic Serra de Tramuntana mountains range will satisfy the needs of the most seasoned of hikers, yet beach lovers and foodies won’t be disappointed either. The beauty of this island is that the climate is warm and temperate all year. You can shop the elegant streets of the island’s capital in the winter months, cosying up in front of the fire at night, and in the summer, clatter your way from Palma to Soller on the vintage wooden train, reaching out to pick fruit from the orange groves as you go.

Ethiopia
From Addis Ababa to Bahir Dar and then Gonder, known as Africa’s Camelot, takes you through some of the most striking, varied, fertile and constantly changing landscapes – from sweeping, lush, and mountainous to stark panoramas, all of which is unexpected and breath-taking and a total contrast to the tragic images seared in most peoples’ minds about this historic place.

Bilbao
Whilst Frank Gehry’s masterpiece of modern architecture is undoubtedly the star of this Spanish coastal show, Bilbao is so much more than just cutting edge architecture. If you like to eat as much as you like art, you’ve come to the right place. The food, like the surroundings, straddles the line between contemporary and traditional – you can bar hop between the old town tapas houses straight into the slick modern lines of Michelin starred Etxanobe in a Bilbao minute.

Top 10 Romantic Boltholes in England
From cool country houses to chic coaching inns and eccentric hideaways, this report tells you our favourite English love nests – listing the highs and lows of each.

The West Coast
Over the years I have listened to many Brits and Europeans scoff that California is just a mall with no culture; what a load of rubbish. Treat yourself to some of the most beautiful places, delicious food and heavenly hotels in the western hemisphere by heading to the West Coast of the USA.

Tripoli
Tripoli (or Tarabulus as it’s locally known) is the lively cosmopolitan capital of Libya. With its lively souks and elegant Italian buildings, and the nearby sites of Sabratha and Leptis Magna just a short drive away, Tripoli makes an interesting and unusual (tourist free) weekend break in the sun.
