Love the layover: eat sweets

If you were disappointed with your drugstore chocolates this Valentine’s weekend, then take a tour of the Sweet Travel Blog and find out where the really great treats are around the world.

Julia, the person who maintains this blog, started researching sweets in Japan and has just kept going, sweetly, around the world.

Read about her latest finds, like these  Indian treats called jalebi – which she describes as “big swirls of blaze orange dough, deep fried and soaked in sugar syrup” – and then dip back through the 85 posts she penned about the amazing sweets she encountered in Japan.

Think all these sweets will make you fat? No way, says Julia,  who believes that “calories don’t count when you’re carrying your own bags.”

I hope she’s right!
