A Traveller's Little Helper: Mission Control

Hands up, who has ever been in a situation, when you needed to make last-minute travel arrangements on the road, but comparing prices and making a booking on your phone was too inconvenient (damn you, tiny screen); or when the only available internet connection was way too slow to load those travel websites and apps - making your research equally frustrating[...]

10 Reasons Why You Should Try Couch Surfing

At the very beginning of 2015, I undertook the trip I had always dreamed of. I boarded a plane in Paris on December 31st and spent New Year’s Eve crossing half the world to land in Bali, on the first day of January.

12 Travel Wardrobe Essentials: Keep Warm, Look Cool

As a traveller, you're bound to pick up the odd bits and bobs from each country that you pass through. We always say 'this time I won't buy anything'... But let's face it, that never really sticks!

Reality Check: New York City on Screen vs. My Life in the City

"If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere..." Everybody knows these famous lines about one of the most famous cities. I'm probably one of the few people though who moved to New York without having them on my mind. I didn't care much about 'making it', I just thought it sounded like a fun place and wouldn't it be cool to go to college there?! Still I arr[...]
