Why I love to travel with the girls

Today I’m working from bed. And no, thanks for worrying, but I’m not sick, I’m just traveling and I need to get some stuff done. I think the myth that travel writers frequently work on the beach has been thoroughly debunked – too much sun, sand, and distractions holding a surfboard. However there are some spots that I think excellent for writing while on the road and one of them …

With the end of summer looming in the UK, the only way we Travelettes could help ease the blues is by providing the fantastic opportunity to be our guest Travelettes reporter for the ultimate cool festival: Bestival! We ran a competition for one lucky reader to score press passes and we had a number of excellent applications for this, making it a toughie to figure out who could cover this …

When I first let people know that I was having a baby, there seemed to be one phrase on everyone’s lips: “Oh, you will have to stop traveling then.” I was usually pretty quick to tell them that this would hardly be the case. Why would a baby stop me from seeing the world? I think the whole point of having children is to show it to them! I believe …

Originally I was going to name this post “6 Ways Prague Will Romance The Pants Off You”, but I thought I’d try and establish some dignity to begin with. However, Prague is an insanely mysterious and beautiful European city that will have you swooning at every gothic corner, straight onto the quaint cobble-stoned ground.
The capital of the Czech Republic is the European place for a weekend city break, as it’s …

The thing with new beginnings is that you can never be quite sure whether taking the risk was worth it until you’re all happy and settled in. I’ve had a lot of new beginnings over the years so I knew that feeling low without any legitimate reason in the first few days, questioning that entire decision and feeling like you’ll never fit in anywhere (pardon me, but drama is in …

There are a few cities that have sat on my “must visit” list so long that they have changed and in some ways they are no longer the place I thought they were.
At the risk of offending my editor and many of you lovely readers, Berlin was one of those cities for me. By the time I visited it was no longer “up and coming”; it had come up as …

Every young, avid traveler dreads this moment: one fine day your mum and dad will show up to your temporary place of residence, all dead serious eyebrows wrinkled, to ask you when are you going to stop wandering and settle down. How you deal with this interrogative is highly critical, and might have a major effect on the endorsement about your travels for the next decades to come. Also, every …

What is it about certain holidays that draws us closer? Why do the bonds we create when we’re away from home feel so much stronger, so much quicker? How can just a few days make a group of strangers feel like they’ve known each other for years?
It’s the good times. Exploring and finding treasures. Jumping into crystal clear water. Dancing till we drop. Photo-bombing everyone. Failing at high-fives and laughing …

Bestival is the festival to hit up to celebrate the ebbing remnants of the UK summer. It explodes in a frenzy of glitter and fancy dress from 4th September – 7th September on the picturesque Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. And what better way to bid farewell to festival season then raving it up in this years fancy dress theme, Desert Island Disco?

This years theme …

Before you go sailing in Croatia, you need to ask yourself one thing: How much do you love the colour blue?
You see I thought I loved the colour blue, but I had no idea how much until last week when four other Travelettes and I met up to sail to the islands on the country’s Dalmatian coast. I dare say you would have the same realisation should you find yourself …
