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 …

“Are you a tourist?” There is no better question to wake the wrath of travelers faster than that. We are no tourists, thank you very much! We are travelers, adventurers, wandering free spirits, exploring the sights and people the world has to offer. So much more following in the footsteps of Magarete Mead than in search of the biggest Sangria bucket on Mallorca. Whatever you do, don’t call me a tourist, …

I can’t quite remember how I stumbled upon Erika Lopez’s Flaming Iguanas in the first place. I must have typed something like “road novels written by awesome hardass women” into Google, and seen it pop up first thing on the results page.
Now, there don’t seem to be that many classic road novels out there that haven’t been committed by a male. And don’t get me wrong, male writers have produced damn …

If I close my eyes, I can still remember the first taste of that spoonful of freshly made dark chocolate. The subtle crunch of the sugar granules lending its sweetness, the slight bitter taste from the cocoa beans mixing with the smoothness of the whipped in milk. Moments ago I had seen all 3 ingredients come together like a choreographed dance–melting into each other while stirred by local Ngäbe women …

It’s a flippin’ freezing February here in Europe and all too often I find myself opting for an early night with friends, tea and television instead of braving the dark and flu-ridden real life out there. My current and the girls’ favourite travel movie right now is Wild. If you missed it, go watch it, it’s perfect.
As for the other ideas, I’ve tried not to walk down cliche lane here (The …

Like it or not, for many around the world February is the month of love and appreciation – it’s the month of Valentine’s Day. Old-single-me I am, I never got myself too excited about this day of the year – isn’t it all just an invention by the greeting card industry so they could make money off our social expectations and blind acceptance of yet another ‘festive’ day? And why …

Happy Valentine’s month! Whether your little eyes light up with love hearts over V-Day or whether you hate it with a fiery passion, it’s hard to miss this red card and candy holiday. In fact, I’m pretty sure that as soon as the January sales bite the dust, retailers wheel out the satin hearts and cuddly bears to remind people of their next big expenditure lest they forget this loved …

“I’ve been invited to speak at a conference in Portugal this March,” I casually say to Tom as we’re sitting on the couch, watching episodes of Fargo. “Is it okay if I go?”
Of course, I don’t need his permission to travel at all; I’m an independent woman, and travel is part of my job. Even if his answer was a sweet, polite, “I’d really rather you stay home,” I’d still …

If you are new to photography or cinematography, choosing the right type of lens that suits your specific use can be daunting. This is because lenses come in not just a range of focal lengths but also in numerous zoom lengths. Unless you are a professional photographer and know exactly what you need, it is important to test a lens before deciding to buy. The best way to do so …

How do you keep your travel photography original? It’s close to impossible to answer that question with a few words, but Anton Charushin doesn’t need words to do that. He just does headstands. A lot of them.
Anton, 27, from Russia got into breakdancing in high school where he realised that doing headstands is pretty good for your blood circulation and general wellbeing. Well, and then there were the creative benefits. Tagging …
