How you as a tourist can help after a natural disaster

•••
The world's climate is changing. Natural disasters are appearing to come with higher frequency. We have recently seen several huge hurricanes in the Atlantic that had a peak this summer, plus flooding in South Asia and the earthquake in Mexico.

4 Packing Tips to Nail looking Stylish & being Comfy

Traveling in style need not necessarily mean that you have to lug around tons of luggage and pack your whole wardrobe for a vacation. Travel style can be versatile and customized to your preference, only if you can decide on a few solid pieces of clothing or essential accessories to build your look on. Over-packing accessories can prove to be a waste of t[...]

A Local's Guide to a Perfect Day in Oslo with Siv Jakobsen

•••
No one knows a city better than its locals. We asked musician Siv Jakobsen - who just released her debut album The Nordic Mellow - to share with us her favorite places in Oslo.  Oslo is one of my favorite cities in the world.

When you think of festivals, you may think of glitter, booze, dancing, raging hangovers and general mayhem. The majority of England's festivals have all of that and more, but why not take some time out from the rollercoaster ride of festival season for something that will nourish you both inside and out, and leave you feeling better than you arrived: a yoga [...]

The lazy girl's guide to keeping fit when traveling

•••
I'm not going to lie, when thinking about top tips for keeping fit when traveling, I caught myself thinking: 'Would I actually freaking do this?' Would I put time aside to condition and tone my body, instead of floating on my back in a sea? Would I go for a run when dealing with jetlag (or tropical humid heat). Would I find time to salute the sun when it's e[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Wroclaw, Poland

•••
Perhaps you caught my post a few weeks ago where I introduced you to a rather unknown Polish city, Poznan. I sung the praises of the city which is rich in culture, old architecture and great food. Today I'm about to do the same for yet another Polish city you may never of heard of, this time Wroclaw! Located just over 4 hours away from Berlin in the South W[...]

How to Turn Into a Local when Traveling Solo

As I sit in my beautiful bedroom in Krakow, I think about how I don’t ever want to leave. Before I moved to Krakow I had been traveling to Poland several times. The decision to make this city my new home as well as a relatively smooth transition from being a backpacker to becoming an expat wouldn’t have been possible if it hadn’t been for my attitude as a tr[...]
