Today I want to talk about the weather. Not something I usually do unless I’m getting sucked into awkward small talk or I’m cold. Which, truth to be told, I am about 97% of the time since I moved from Cape Town to Hamburg. Exceptions are when I am at Bikram yoga or wearing my wetsuit. But today I want to talk about a different kind of weather as we …

When you land somewhere new in the world and think, ‘You know what, I might stay here for a bit. I quite like it!”, you know you’re going to be experiencing something special. There’s nothing quite like fully immersing yourself in a new city or country for a substantial amount of time and absorbing every part of the culture.

There are aspects to the city that you would never experience if …

Marianna Jamadi’s job is to be a dreamer. She is also one of the most mindblowing photographers we have come across in a while, a passionate entrepreneur at El Camino (more on that later!) and always on the hunt for unique stories for her blog Nomadic Habit.
We spoke to her about the challenges of living one’s dream, the practicalities of traveling 17 countries in one year and what cultures inspire her …

New Zealand is beautiful – even if you haven’t been there yet, we all know that much. Images of its mountains, coasts, country, and lakes saturate the internet and people rave about how clean, green, and natural everything looks. Although photos can’t possibly do its beauty justice, many photographers try of course. As a New Zealander, I can say that Crystal Brindle’s photos are some of the first I’ve seen …

‘Dream big & do what you love’ – that is possibly my favourite mantra to live by. Unless you dream big and push the limits of your own possibilities, you might never know your own full potential – and really, that would be a complete waste. But as so often with big dreams that will change your life, they need money to be fulfilled. The food truck in which you …

Over the years I have not only traveled to quite a bit, I have also moved to quite a few places. Moving seems normal when you are from a small German town with no university and not many career prospects. However, most of my high school friends moved away to nearby cities to study and came home every weekend to have mom do their laundry. Eventually, they would find a …

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 …

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 …
