Travelling is among the most stressful things that I make myself go through – by choice, of course. I started writing this blogpost in Tel Aviv at the airport. My flight was delayed and I already knew that I had to spend the night in Brussels, before I would get another connection flight to Glasgow via London. And if that wasn’t already enough on my poor soul, my laptop’s battery was …

When Charlotte Eriksson recently told us the story behind her music and writing, we knew that you guys had to meet her! Charlotte is a Swedish singer-songwriter and author who left home at the age of 18 to pursue her art, and has been a constant traveler since. In between publishing her new short story collection (‘Another vagabond lost to love‘, which immediately makes me want to play some Stu Larsen songs!) …

Hurray!! Summer is practically here and I can positively feel the sun calling my name and feel the sea breeze in my hair. Now is the time to get planning for those summer trips and see where your summer holidays will take you!
I, for one, cannot wait to get in the heat and forget about the trauma of winter (hey, I’m a summer baby!) so am now deviously planning some …

A little less than 6 years ago, a new blog popped up on the growing blogosphere of Berlin. A globetrotter with a vision and a pair of heels decided to ignore the stereotypical image of a backpacker, and venture the world true to herself and her heels. A Travelette was born – and so was Travelettes.net. Soon Katja was joined by like-minded girls from around the world, who contributed their stories and shared their …

City trips are among my favourite journeys. Arriving without a plan or a map, just strolling around, chatting up local folk, asking them for recommendations and directions, following cool-looking people around, until I find the places I like. Diving headfirst into the subcultures of a city, rather than following the top ten list of some travel guide – being a real explorer. Don’t you feel the same?
If you do, you might take …

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 …
