Meet The New Travelettes!

•••
There have been a few changes to the Travelettes team this year. Although Katja, Annika, Kathi, Caroline and Tabea have of course been writing their hearts out for years, others have left us to move onto awesome new ventures. In their place, there's now another six new writers, bringing the total Travelettes team count up to eleven! From Australia to the [...]

The Travelettes guide to St Petersburg

•••
Before I visited St Petersburg, all I knew about it was what I had seen in the animated film ‘Anastasia’. I’m not sure what that says about me but I grew up singing ‘Journey to the Past’, feeling terrified of Rasputin’s character and in complete awe of how aristocratic the city looked. In the summer of 2019 when I visited it for the first time, I got to expl[...]

Sun, Sea and Anarchy and at the World’s Biggest Punk Festival!

•••
Every August thousands of punk music fans, ranging from mohawk-sporting crust punks and rainbow-haired girls, to cute rocker kids-  and even guys who look like they might play golf with your dad - descend on Blackpool; an unassuming seaside town in Northern England.

5 lessons I learnt from living in Paris

•••

•••
Summer in Cyprus means way more than simply lounging at the beach and surviving the heat. Sure, hustling through daily life at 40 degrees is no easy task but the summer months on the island also mean it’s the festival season! Kato Drys was an unknown village to most before Fengaros Festival took over and rebirthed it. Many locals hadn’t even visited the v[...]

A letter to my pre-travel self

•••
Dear 20-year-old me,   It’s funny how you think life is so straight forward. Finish school, get qualifications, go get a job, a boyfriend, a house. Maybe get married and have some babies. It’s hard for me now to think that was ever what you wanted. You were meant to be successful, academic, have a long and fulfilling career and a perfect f[...]

Resorts we love: Club Med in Mauritius

•••
Before I became a mother I dreaded the thought of going on a club holiday, nothing was further from my mind. It was from my friend Caro who had a one-year-old that I first really learned about Club Med because she had tried one of their locations in France. I still remember how excited she was to stay there. About the activities, the staff and the (free of c[...]
