Witnessing the Display of Fall Colors in Scotland

•••
Fall is one of my favourite times to travel around Scotland. The offseason is the perfect time for a road trip - not only are there fewer tourists on the road and everything becomes more affordable, but the landscape also presents itself from its best side! Two of the best regions in Scotland to witness the fiery display of fall colours are Perthshire and th[...]

10 Ways of Sharing your Love for Travel with Others

•••
Do you love to travel? Duh - what a question, of course, you do, otherwise you would not be reading this. But do your friends and family also love to travel? No? Well, then you're not alone. I have quite a few friends and family who are not as keen globetrotters as me, and sometimes I feel quite a disconnect from them. It's difficult to explain to them my[...]

Seize Your Adventure with Fran Turauskis

•••
A few weeks ago, I contributed to an episode of my favourite travel podcast She Explores. The episode was all about female solo adventures and I shared my thoughts on hiking solo across Scotland and what being alone in the outdoors does to my mind and body. The episode featured many inspiring women, who sought the outdoors and adventure - one of them was Fra[...]

12 Hours in Brighton - A day trip from London

•••
I fell in love with the seaside of southern England on a trip to Southampton earlier this year and when my partner planned our vegan foodie getaway to London this autumn, I knew I wanted to return to the coast for a brief stint. And what better city is there, to go to on a day trip from London, than Brighton! And so we booked our tickets, made a list of s[...]

A 3-day road trip in Austria from Vienna to Carinthia

•••
Every time I go home to Austria, I love discovering new parts of the country. The last time I visited, my brother and his wife suggested a road trip to Carinthia, the southernmost state of Austria - well-known for its clear lakes, tall mountains and lots of sunshine. Together with my partner, we made our way down south - but not without making several stops [...]

How to visit 12 Scottish islands in 2 weeks

•••
Earlier this year, I counted how many Scottish Islands I had visited since I moved here in 2013. I don't usually count countries, but I thought - to heck with it - and did it anyway. With 790 islands, some inhabited, but many just pure wilderness - there is no way to ever "see them all", and so the counting became about something different than just ticking [...]

10 Ways to turn a Rainy Day into an Awesome Travel Day

•••
Let's be honest, rain can bring the downfall to a great tip. Or at least, that's what a lot of people think... Bad weather doesn't have to ruin your vacation - take it from me, I love in Scotland! Over the years of living and holidaying on Scotland's rainy west coast, I have changed my attitude towards bad weather dramatically. When it rains as much as it[...]

5 reasons to try long distance hiking

•••
When I embarked on my first long distance walk last summer in Scotland, I was confident it would be a great experience. I had been climbing mountains since I was a little girl, had recently (almost) reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and had a pair of hiking boots my feet seemed to love. I had signed up for four days in the Scottish Highlands, walking alon[...]

Abled traveler with a disability: Interview with Min. Annie Bell

•••
There was something about Annie that immediately caught my interest - maybe it was the fact that she called herself an abled traveler with a disability. Or maybe it was seeing the photo of her zooming across a beach in a motorised scooter - having adventures even though she might not be the first person that comes to mind when you'd think about an adventure [...]

Travelette of the Month: Amanda Rae - Travel with Lupus & Chron's Disease

•••
Like so many of the inspiring travelers whose journeys I follow, I found Amanda on social media. She had posted about her story, someone had shared it, it popped up on my wall, and the rest is history - so to say. Amanda has a story, that I immediately knew needs to reach more people around the world. People who are in the same situation as her; and those wh[...]
