The truth about WWOOFing in New Zealand

•••
I don’t know what I was thinking when I signed up for the WWOOF program on my trip to New Zealand. Just the name is a bit off-putting: Willing Workers On Organic Farms sounds a whole lot like rural slavery involving whip-cracking task masters and a diet of tofu and herbs. However the deal is this – you work four to six hours a day in exchange for accommod[...]

Meet the girl who lives in a mountain hut in Norway

•••
I met Johanna during a media conference in Berlin this summer where she spoke about what it's like to live in the Norwegian mountains by herself. She had an incredibly calm way of speaking; her talk was by far my favorite. A few months later, we're close to Christmas now and I'm rushing from the office to a dinner in Kreuzberg, when I ring her for an intervi[...]

See a new Place each Month: 12 Countries on our 2018 Bucket List

•••
'Once a year go some place you've never been before.' There's something about this quote by the Dalai Lama that gets to me, especially because 'somewhere new' does not necessarily mean a new country abroad, but could also just refer to a new corner in your back garden. However, I'd like to raise the Dalai Lama, by 11 and say, 'once a month go some plac[...]

25 Simple Ways to Save Money for Travel

•••
What is any traveller's worst enemy? Unsurprisingly, it is of course their bank account. How often have I heard that the reason for not travelling is that it is too expensive and there is simply no money for that flight to [insert dream destination]. I often get asked how I can afford to travel so much, and while there are certain perks as a travel blogger t[...]

•••
Traveling the world is an exciting affair where you get to pack up your belongings, carry them on your back and hit the road not knowing quite where it'll take you! If you're going for an extended trip with a one way ticket, not knowing when you'll return home, then that's the kind of trip I'd like to join you on! But unfortunately, there's the small issu[...]

Confessions of a Travel Blogger

•••
Last week I sat down with an old friend and her new partner. As it goes when you get to know someone, the conversation turned towards our jobs quite quickly. Soon I found myself showered in questions about travel blogging and our discussion made me think about why I want to be part of the Travelettes and what it is I am actually doing here. After year[...]

The Wild Wild West in Canada

•••
“Easy girls”, I hear Tim's voice from the front. He doesn't mean me, of course, but the two mule mares drawing the coach I am on. Earlier that day a two-hour truck drive brought me from Banff to the Bighorn camp-ground on the edge of Banff National Park, Alberta. I was about to gather my first WWOOFing experience, leaving behind electricity, running water, p[...]

A Visa for Australia

•••
Visas. Sometimes they're easy to obtain, sometimes they're an enigma which need plenty of chasing, and sometimes they're not required and you can waltz straight off the plane without a care in the world! I'm pretty good with forward-planning and organisation as my Thailand visa was extended well before i packed my toothbrush, my Indonesian border-run was [...]
