Traveling Women In History - Amelia Earhart

“I want to do it because I want to do it.” As simple as this sentence seems, it needs often a lot of courage to do what you want to do. Courage to stand up for your rights, courage to do what your heart tells you to do, courage to be different, courage to set your goals high. Amelia Earhart wanted to do all this, simply because - as she put it - she wanted t[...]

Hitra, Norway - no country for old men

Have you ever felt the need of travelling to Goa or Bali to get that one piece of experience that changes your life?

Interview Project Germany

How would I describe myself? What am I proud of? Is there anything I regret? How do I want to be remembered? You only have to ask the right questions to get at a person beneath the surface.

Fascinating Aida are a hilarious female comedy singing trio from from Ireland who recently confronted the cheap airlines in one of their unique and well written songs called "Cheap Flights."

Chatting to the Six Six Sick girls about New York City

I first met the six six sick girls about 4 years ago when I lived in New York for a while. Back then, these (then) 3 fine ladies ran one of NYC's best clubnights called Six Six Sick, at a place called Happy Ending, ever Tuesday. I loved them right away because each week they designed their own outfits and treated all their guests as friends. These days, the[...]

Tragedy on the Road: Pippa Bacca

A friend and I were talking about hitch-hiking when I first heard about Pippa Bacca. Unfortunately the story is not particularly encouraging or uplifting, but one I feel is necessary to share with Travelettes.
