‘We stopped for brunch at F-Hoone, one of the most popular pitstops in Telliskivi. The interior was shabby-chic perfection, with huge windows that created Insta-worthy silhouettes, while the food was tasty and filling (go for the grilled lavash). Get here early or book ahead to guarantee you get a table.’ – @sparkyseestheworld #lonelyplanet #lpinstatakeover #bestintravel #estonia

‘One area of #Tallinn feeling the benefits of regeneration is Telliskivi Creative City. Once an industrial complex, the old factories now house hip cafes, art galleries and local businesses. There’s a flea market every Saturday, plus street food carts and a plethora of street art to enjoy. The best bit? The cruise-ship crowds don’t make it here… yet.’ – @sparkyseestheworld #lonelyplanet #lpinstatakeover #bestintravel #estonia

‘Linnahall looms on the outskirts of the Old Town. Once an ice rink and a concert venue, it has been closed for almost a decade. These days the decaying shell is frequented mostly by seagulls and photographers on the hunt for the perfect perspective shot. Graffiti covers every viable surface and weeds are reclaiming the stone staircases. I was enchanted by the architectural design and wind-whipped seafront location. The venue is set for renovation – so get here soon if you’re a fan of urban ‘ruins’! – @sparkyseestheworld #lonelyplanet #lpinstatakeover #bestintravel #estonia

This weekend’s #lpinstatakeover is from #LonelyPlanet’s Deputy Editor Emma Sparks, who will be sharing snaps of her recent visit to #Tallinn, our best value destination for 2018. ‘Tallinn was an eye-opening trip for me. The cobblestones and spires I expected – but the rest? From modern street art and uber-cool neighbourhoods to edgy abandoned buildings and a varied food scene, this city is full of surprises. And it’s affordable too, despite being just a short ferry ride away from the eye-wateringly expensive Helsinki. Estonia’s capital is ideal for a long weekend, but no doubt you’ll want to return for more!’ – @sparkyseestheworld — Keep an eye out for more of Emma’s Tallinn shots this weekend! #lonelyplanet #BestinTravel #Estonia

#LonelyPlanet photography, @wrightontheroad, is exploring Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park in #Vietnam. Designated a Unesco World Heritage site in 2003, it contains the oldest karst mountains in Asia, formed approximately 400 million years ago. Riddled with hundreds of cave systems – many of extraordinary scale and length – and spectacular underground rivers, Phong Nha is a speleologists’ heaven on earth. #travel

‘Keeping an eye on #Seville is the cathedral‘s bell tower. Built in the 12th century during the Moorish period, it was constructed as a minaret. Then when the cathedral was built in the 1500s, it was cleverly incorporated into the design and adapted to fit in with the Christian building. Rather than steps there are several ramps leading to the top. While it was a gruelling climb in the midday heat, it was certainly worth the effort once I saw this view. What a perfect way to round off my Spanish adventure! Thanks for joining me this weekend. Follow me for plenty more adventures!’ – @wanderlustchloe — That’s all for this weekend’s #lpinstatakeover travel fans! #lonelyplanet #travel #bestintravel #spain

‘#Seville has that perfect combination of hustle and bustle, and calm. One minute you’ll be hopping from tapas bar to flamenco show, and the next you’ll be totally alone exploring the lush gardens of the Real Alcázar de Seville. This gallery was built purely to admire the beautiful gardens below. It’s so peaceful here, you’ll forget you’re in a big city.’ – @wanderlustchloe #lpinstatakeover #BestinTravel #travel #lonelyplanet #spain

‘Plaza de España’s curved architecture, impressive fountains and canal (complete with rowing boats) are guaranteed to take your breath away. Built in 1929 for the Ibero-American Exposition, it’s full of details that you’ll only spot if you look closely. Along with Lonja Del Barranco (a great food market by the river), this is my favourite spot in the city!’ – @wanderlustchloe #lpinstatakeover #BestInTravel #travel #lonelyplanet #seville #spain

‘Blue skies, colourful architecture and a row of orange trees – what could sum up #Seville better? I spent a few days in the city, exploring on foot. It’s the most wonderful city to get lost in, and whichever street I picked, I was never disappointed with where it led. Check out the incredible detail of the building with the dome, it’s definitely a reminder to look up more while travelling!’ – @wanderlustchloe #lpinstatakeover #BestinTravel #spain #lonelyplanet

This weekend’s #lpinstatakeover is from #LonelyPlanet Trailblazer @wanderlustchloe, who will be sharing some photos from her travels in #BestInTravel destination #Seville, #Spain. – ‘For me, Seville is so quintessentially Spanish! Brimming with Andalusian charm, flamenco, bright sunshine and Moorish influences, it’s vibrant and full of history. It also oozes charm. One moment you’re walking past the epic cathedral, the next you’re getting lost in the labyrinth of skinny streets, and then there’s the intricate beauty of the Real Alcázar palace and gardens (pictured here). I found it hard to put my camera down’ – @wanderlustchloe (Photo by @anadventurousworld) — Check out our feed this weekend for more of Chloe’s sunny Seville snaps. ☀️ #travel

‘I had a 24 hour bout of food poisoning in Trinidad, but even that couldn’t put me off the town. Trinidad is a real time warp in #Cuba. Wandering its cobbled streets, lined with brightly coloured colonial buildings feels like wandering around a movie set. It’s a popular tourist spot but that doesn’t detract from its charm. Horses clip-clop up and down the streets and it’s particularly atmospheric come sunset!’ – @katemorgan_travels — That’s a wrap for this weekend’s #lpinstatakeover!

‘It’s not hard to see why this was one of the most relaxing holidays I’ve ever been on. This is the sunbaking deck at the casa we were staying at in Cienfuegos, in the neighbourhood of Punta Gorda. Located on the southern coastline of #Cuba, Cienfuegos is a breezy bay-side city with French-inspired architecture and some of the prettiest pastel-coloured buildings you can imagine.’ – @katemorgan_travels #lpinstatakeover #lonelyplanet #travel #havana

‘A shot of a vintage American car in #Havana is a little cliché, yes, but they really are everywhere and it’s hard not to take a photo of every one you see. When we arrived in #Cuba, we were picked up (sadly not in a vintage car) at the airport in Havana and driven to our accommodation. The minute we got on the road, vintage cars in every colour were zipping by us on both sides and it felt like we had been transported into an episode of Happy Days. I was half expecting someone to tell me to ‘sit on it’.’ – @katemorgan_travels #lpinstatakeover #lonelyplanet #travel

‘I was enthralled with #Havana at first sight. Many hours and days were spent just meandering the streets and backstreets of Habana Vieja (Old Town) taking in everything from the crumbling, paint-peeling beauty of the buildings and the primary-colour overload, to the local kids kicking soccer balls and jazz tunes floating from an upstairs apartment. There’s plenty to do as the streets are interspersed with atmospheric squares, museums, restaurants and cathedrals, or you can make your way to the Malecón, the 8km-long street running alongside the sea wall – a popular hang out spot for locals.’ – @katemorgan_travels #lpinstatakeover #lonelyplanet #travel #cuba

That wasn’t the case for me in Cuba – I slipped into holiday mode as soon as we arrived in Havana. I spent two weeks travelling around the country with my boyfriend and it was the ultimate place for a ‘take it easy’ trip. There was plenty of sunshine, palm trees, friendly locals, incredible architecture, streets, beaches and promenades made for wandering; and mojitos pretty much on tap!’ – @katemorgan_travels — Keep an eye out this weekend for more of Kate’s Cuba captures. #travel
