Meet the fascinating female photographer who portrays women on the streets of NYC

•••
Normally, she’s the expert in asking original questions. This time round though, I caught up with Karina Rozwadowska, who is best known from her street photography and interviews during the Women's March in Washington, D.C. I first came across her beautiful work in ZeitMagazin and have followed her Instagram account ever since. Karina was trained as an art h[...]

How to save money by finding the best Travel Deals on social media

•••
Social media has caused a revolution in the travel world, and that’s a great thing. Literally any likes, follows, hashtags and reviews can potentially translate into discounts and freebies, and many people are hunting for them. Young people like us are one of the leading groups when it comes to travel, but we often don't have as much money as older or more s[...]

6 ways minimalism will improve your travel experience

•••
Approximately 5 years ago my packing and unpacking routine would look something like this: a couple of hours before I had to rush to the airport, I’d throw 20 kilos worth of clothes into my bag, 5 pairs of shoes, fancy clothes I hadn’t worn in years (but that I was sure to wear during my holiday), handbags, jewelry and lots of bits and pieces. I was always o[...]

My travel bucket list for 2018

•••
When a year ends and when I'm going through the photos I took that year, I often realize that I traveled to places I never expected to, while I've completely forgot about the places I "picked" in January. I have no idea what 2018 will bring and if it will be the same, but I would love to go hiking in Romania, dance through the night in Georgia and find peace[...]

Love Nature, Classical Music, and Serenity? Come to this festival!

•••
Fog hung heavy in the valley. I knew that mountains over 3000 meters high stretched towards the skies around me, but saw only misty clouds of white. I closed my eyes. Feet placed firmly on the yoga mat beneath me, I breathed in. Out. In. Out. For a little while, silence took over. Until softly, not far away, sounds of a Viola da Gamba started filling t[...]

9 Instagrammers to follow this Autumn

•••
I won't ever get tired of talking about how much I love fall. My favorite season is finally back. With changing leaves and woollen sweaters everywhere, I finally find myself having some more time again to re-decorate my apartment, work on that huge pile of unread books that only got bigger over summer (#sorrysooonotsorry) and dream about faraway places.

New York's best outdoor offices

•••
This month I am treating myself to a special adventure because I am spending it in New York! As you can imagine this isn't an entirely cheap endeavor - flights, rent, food, it's got its price spending a lush 4 weeks in the city. I comfort myself with this splurge by the fact that I do work while I am here, I am not just out partying 24/7. I have also been ve[...]

Telling Her Story: An Interview with filmmaker Teresa Hoerl

•••
Championing women in adventure travel and the outdoor sports is one of my passions, and I love having Travelettes as a platform to share my discoveries of inspiring women with a huge audience. Films are another passion of mine, so you can imagine that every year around this time I'm super excited for the program launch of the European Outdoor Film Tour (E.O.[...]

10 documentaries to change how you see the world

•••
What I love about documentaries is that they open a window onto new people, places and cultures. Film makers can take you to locations that it might otherwise be difficult, if not impossible, to access. And not only do documentaries give you the opportunity to learn about life in other places, but they also have the amazing capacity to change the way we see [...]
