The Urge to Wander is where Madhu documents her journeys around the world with plenty of photos. This month she’s been busy as usual but one of her stand-out posts was looking at Istanbul’s history and culture.

Also talking Turkey is Liv, of The World is Waiting, who describes her experience of a Hammam. It’s a totally comprehensive guide that covers everything you might need to know before letting yourself be pampered.

Having always wanted to go to Italy but never quite got round to it, Suzanne (a.k.a. The Travel Bunny) finally touched down in Sorrento this September and wondered why she’d left it so long. Discover the tempting food and sights that she came across on her travels.

Tom, the Active Backpacker, got to know Croatia with visits to Split and Dubrovnik. Take a look at his Dubrovnik photo essay and look out for a brush with celebrity – the city is used as a location for Game of Thrones, and Tom spotted the casting call posters on his travels.

Marianne, from the East of Malaga blog, just couldn’t resist sharing one of her favourite places: a Buddhist Stupa tucked away in the countryside of the Costa del Sol. As she explains in the post, a Stupa is a symbol of peace, and it also looks very photogenic!

Being the self-confessed ‘Traveling Philosopher’, Spencer’s surf adventures in Fuerteventura gave him plenty of experiences to reflect back on. If you’ve ever wondered whether to try surfing on holiday then check out Spencer’s blog post, with top tips including ‘Make it a vacation’ and ‘Take a surf lesson before signing up’ – yep, try before you buy, people!

Tatiana in Flux has posted about the temptations of German bakeries – just look at all those delicious cakes and pasties on her blog, and the difference between American bakeries back home. If you’re on a diet then be prepared for a serious test of willpower.

This month Meg Travels took a look at her souvenir drawer and found a great stash of maps, postcards and leaflets from her various trips. Do you like to keep things like that from your holidays, or do you go minimal and stick to official souvenirs only?

Sarah Ryan shared a breath-taking view of Majorca with her readers at the end of September – on the edge of the Llevant Mountains, looking across to the Sanctuary of Sant Salvador, which is home to a monastery and a restaurant.
