Having real friends in your life is a blessing, but being one is the goal. The value of real friends should be one of the things to learn from traveling. Over the years, the most beautiful words have been written about friendship. But all of them are understatements.

Everyone needs a supportive friend
Traveling makes women feel extremely empowered, self-reliant and adventuresome. These types of well-built feelings occur, especially when you solo travel …

These poor Americans with their one week of vacation..I could practically hear the thoughts and see the pity spreading across the faces of our new friends. My fiancé and I had landed in Colombia just a few hours earlier and had ventured into the balmy night air for a drink to celebrate our arrival. As is often the case with travel, it took little more than a ‘Club Colombia’ cerveza …

International Women’s Day is a celebration of nebulous origins, and dubious manifestations (should we thank or punch the colleague who holds the door for us “because it’s International Women’s Day”?).
However, this annual milestone has one merit: every year, for one day, it specifically focuses media attention on issues regarding gender equality—and, in this media age, the louder a concern resounds, the most likely it is to be addressed.
International Women’s Day …

Frankie beautifully described in her Valentine’s post the pros and cons of travelling with a partner. Since I don’t have a boyfriend or preferred travel buddy I am here to tell you how awesome travelling on your own is.
I think the most common argument why people don’t travel is either “I don’t have money” or “I don’t have anyone to go with”. While money or lack thereof can be a …

I love to travel, so please don’t let the title of this post make you think otherwise! But if you’re a traveller who tends to take fatty chunks of time off to live the life of a backpacking nomad, you’ll understand that sometimes it can get to the point where you can feel, in your gut, that it is just time to go home. And hey, that’s ok! I remember …

In a world where one is constantly pushed to go faster, higher and stronger the importance of the little things can easily be forgotten. The tiny marvelous things and moments that seldomly require big bucks or great efforts.
Many find it necessary to climb the ladder of success, but not everyone can be placed on the top. Moreover, there’s a fairly long way to go back downwards, and a very few …

I’m pretty sure that every blogpost I ever wrote about Thailand and Bangkok in particular was essentially just one big lovefest. It’s true that the most popular of destinations in Asia is simply always guaranteed to provide a good time, pretty much regardless of weather, company or budget. It’s a bit like a disneyland for adults with fun people, amazing food, stimulating culture, great nightlife, incredible beaches – and trust …

Whether you live in London, New York or Cape Town, you are constantly progressing on your life’s journey. We are all unique and have various trails in life. No matter how many continents you cross and difficulties you will overcome, the biggest and most important voyage is the one learning how to love yourself.
Does loving yourself mean drinking daily smoothies  or spending Saturday nights with chocolate and chips without a guilt …

“But… why?“ was the most common reaction to us announcing that we were going to Liverpool for the weekend. Why? The honest answer is: because the plane tickets were the cheapest we could find for the long weekend. Before booking them, we only had a vague image of the most populated city of Northern England — and it was one that involved constant drizzle, a gloomy post-industrial atmosphere, and generally not …

Every time I step into a plane, there’s a part of me that hesitates at the meaning of an upcoming adventure. Was is the right decision to buy an expensive plane ticket again, am I going to be safe, is this guy really worth it?
I’m a grateful female solo traveler who quit her job in order to travel. Traveling has been my greatest accomplishment and a life changing experience. The fresh …
