When many months ago someone commented on Molly Steele’s Instagram “How are you always in the coolest places?” and she answered “Because it is both my priority and my salvation”, my interest was piqued – and I bet yours will be, too.
If you think landscape photography is boring, it’s because you haven’t seen Molly’s work yet. Her outdoor pictures, often taken during long solo hikes, are wildly personal and intimate. They speak of the sheer joy of waking …

Summer is on its way and while that brings along long breezy evenings, unlimited ice cream cones, and a smaller electricity bill, it also means the somewhat dreaded bikini season is almost upon us. That is of course if you live in the northern hemisphere. Mind you, you girls in the south seem to live in bikinis all year round so you should be used to it! For us coming …

My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me, tell me where did you sleep last night? – the hymn of my teenage years. Because even though Kurt Cobain had long left, his music was still among the most influential tunes I listened to back then. Nirvana Unplugged was one of my first records, and I believe my deep love for white lilies derives from the set up of this live concert. Why …

Yes! You’re finally on your way. Weeks, if not months of preparation have gone into planning your trip. You’re ready. No, no, you were BORN ready! This is it.
Skip forwards a few days… and now you’re miserable. Turns out that friend of yours (whether they’re your best friend, your partner, or another solo traveller you bumped into on the road) is trouble, and they’re ruining your trip. You need to find …

I love the internet, its unpredictability, its seemingly inexhaustible wealth of ideas, new talent – and weirdness. But sometimes, just sometimes, I love myself a good old physical magazine that filters out some of the best bits of it. There’s nothing like a good indie magazine with its thick pages, bold narratives and beautifully designed pages.
So without further ado, here’s my top six of travel indie mags:
1. Another Escape
Every issue …

Wedding season is upon us in the United States! I have several friends this year who are avid travelers, have met their spouses abroad, or just like cute and quirky gifts that go beyond a chip-n-dip and monogrammed hand towels. Travel-themed wedding gifts are great even for people who don’t travel all that often as well, and may even inspire the couple to embark on new journeys. These are some …

Is there anything better than coming home after a long and strenuous journey, falling into a freshly made bed without lifting a finger (thanks for that, five-days-ago-Kathi), indulging in a home-cooked dinner and lounging on your couch while watching your favourite film for the 5th time in the past four months – What we do in the Shadows, anyone?  That instant bra-off feeling of freedom in the privacy of your own home is unbeatable. No …

Your flight is delayed? You’re spending way too much time at an empty train station because services only run once every three hours? You’re frustrated because there just seems to be too much time going wasted before you can kick off the real adventure?
Well, you lovely worn-out traveller, this one is for you because I’ve come to appreciate these moments.
I’m in love with random conversations that last ten seconds, I’m in …

“Do it while you’re young,” everyone used to tell me. “I’m too old to travel now. I’ve got a house, a job, kids, responsibilities. I wish I had traveled more when I was young enough to do it.”
I’m not that old, but I’m old enough to remember what it was like to travel “while young.” It’s sleepless nights crashing on a friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend’s couch in Boston. It’s getting sick to my …

I recently stumbled upon a video in my Facebook newsfeed, and my friend’s tagline ‘I hope I don’t come off like this’ going with it, drew in my attention. In the video a girl, who has just returned from another exotic destination, visits her friend’s home and meets two of his friends. While they question her about why she travels and how she’s even able to afford it (‘her dad …
