A Lesson in Dorm Sex Etiquette

•••
We’ve all been there, right? It’s 3.00am, and that pretentious fool with the guitar and dreadlocks is looking like a pretty great idea from across the beer pong table. We’re only animals, after all. A hot topic of debate amongst the backpackers of the world: is it okay to have sex with someone in shared a dorm room? And how, if possible, does one even[...]

Destination: Discrimination

•••
Destination Discrimination. It’s a real thing. When I was eight years old, I was thoroughly disinterested in the idea of our family trip to Mexico, and wanted to know why Disney World wouldn’t be getting our business yet again. Similarly, during my junior year in college when I told my parents I was one click away from booking a three-week trip through Vie[...]

City Girls vs. Nature: a dose of olde English charm in the Cotswolds

•••
The neurotic nature of England’s spring weather means Easter is often a washout - but not this year. While fishermen with bulging tackle boxes caught trains out to the coast, I hightailed it to the ‘burbs.

How to avoid travel burnout

•••
Travel burnout? I hear you cry. What a very privileged concern to suffer from. But let me set the record straight.

I’m not necessarily saying you’ll get sick of trav[...]

The Rise of ‘Eco-Anxiety’ and How It Could Shape the Future

•••
For me, it struck hardest watching David Attenborough's latest series 'Our Planet'. The polar bears struggling to survive, the altered migration paths of whole species and the devastating decline of wildlife by 60% across the world. It filled me with overwhelming guilt and disgust at not only myself, but the whole human race. However it was one of Attenb[...]

A Love Letter to Ugly Shoes

•••
Dear Hiking Boots, We’ve been together for just over a year now, and I think it’s about time I tell you how I really feel. When I first sat on the metal bench at the now-closed sports store in Kiel, Germany, and the kind, sporty shop assistant pointed at a pair of poop-brown boots with electric blue accents (what a combination), I cringed. I like pret[...]

Tips for Traveling with Anxiety

•••
Some people want to make us believe that travel is the cure to everything and can heal anything from a broken heart to mental issues. I don't believe that to be necessarily true and sometimes quite the opposite takes place. While travel is a big part of my life as a digital nomad, I have come to realize how hard it can be to deal with certain issues when I a[...]
