Club holidaying in Thailand - Do or Don't?

•••
As I am typing this I am sat on a plane back home, leaving a wondrous journey of 3 weeks through Thailand with my 4-year old son. And for the first time in these 4 years as a mother my trip was not unlike the trips I would go on before I had him. We rode on speed boats, minivans, tuk-tuks and songtaews, washed elephants in the mud, woke up to monkeys swingin[...]

East meets east - Getting zen in Bali

•••
This July I had great plans to finally add two new countries to my personal map: I was going take my first trip to Tokyo followed by seeing my family in the Philippines. Alas, as it happens sometimes happens in life - you can plan all you want, things can still go wrong or in my case not work out at all. My travel plans fell through within a week to spare an[...]

Travel with Nashipae: Meet the inspiring woman who quit her job and moved to Kenya

•••
Sometimes you come across stories of people completely outside of your online and offlice bubble and it just hits you. Something they say, something they stand for just moves you in a way you're not moved that often. When Sinja's story - which you will read below - popped up on our Facebook feeds, we knew we had to introduce her to you guys. She quit her job[...]

Dear island life - 5 favorite memories

•••
There’s something wildly fascinating about islands and how they function. No matter how much closer we are growing through easier forms of transportation and the good old internet, there will always be a special vibe going on in those places - it surely does something to them, being so secluded. As I love discovering all those little traits, habits, faun[...]

Hotels we love - The Stones Hotel in Kuta, Bali

•••
Each year, for the past 14 years, I have treated myself to a very special birthday gift - a trip somewhere warm. If you're born in February, the coldest month of the year, like me, chances are you have not come to enjoy epic garden parties or picnics to celebrate your special day. At best you may have gathered the troups in some bar or hosted a dinner party,[...]

Abled traveler with a disability: Interview with Min. Annie Bell

•••
There was something about Annie that immediately caught my interest - maybe it was the fact that she called herself an abled traveler with a disability. Or maybe it was seeing the photo of her zooming across a beach in a motorised scooter - having adventures even though she might not be the first person that comes to mind when you'd think about an adventure [...]

The Travelettes Guide to Seminyak, Bali

•••
Some people love it, some people hate it (and that is quite alright!) but for us, Bali still has a special place in our hearts. Whether you are traveling with kids, plan an Eat Pray Love kinda holiday or want to explore the underwater world - Bali has something for everyone. I will admit that I have a soft spot for Bali, so much so that I stayed there 2 y[...]

Meet the Travelettes: A life and travel update

•••
When your team is scattered all over the planet like the Travelettes are, it's sometimes a little hard to keep each other in the loop about current projects and life in general. So when I recently started messaging the girls for a life update, I thought why not let you guys take part in it, too. The seven of us are always on the run as you'll see, but I was [...]

Travelette of the Month: Amanda Rae - Travel with Lupus & Chron's Disease

•••
Like so many of the inspiring travelers whose journeys I follow, I found Amanda on social media. She had posted about her story, someone had shared it, it popped up on my wall, and the rest is history - so to say. Amanda has a story, that I immediately knew needs to reach more people around the world. People who are in the same situation as her; and those wh[...]

Hotels we love: Villa Sorgenfrei & a weekend in Dresden

•••
In Germany, the city of Dresden has become the centre of political debates in recent years, take the refugee crisis, the nation's and Europe's response to it and growing right-wing extremism (like the weekly PEGIDA demonstrations). I know, this is not your typical intro for a travel piece but it's impossible not to reflect on Dresden's history and present if[...]
