Through the eyes of......Fiona O'Donoghue

•••
Dear Travelettes, the other day, as I was cruising through Flickr, I came across a remarkable young photographer from Melbourne who loves the same 2 things I love: traveling and photography. Reason enough for me to present you with her work. I've selected a few images but you can see more of her stuff on her flickr account. She also runs a (not current[...]

Summer is coming - what to wear?

•••
Dear Travelettes, Depending on where you live, the weather right now is still not really saying spring, let alone summer. You might wake up to a few rays of sun in the morning but once you step outside you freeze, like you've been freezing for months now. If this type of weather drags you down, take my advice - denial is the best medicine. This is a grea[...]

Do drink and travel: What to Taste in Poland

•••
Growing up with Polish immigrant grandparents, I had a lot of ideas what I would encounter when I actually had a chance to visit "the motherland." Prominent themes featured in these fantasies were food, alcohol, and babushkas. When I finally visited Warsaw over Christmas, I was not disappointed in any of these departments. It would take a small novel to desc[...]

Bangkok: an ode to the Hareem Pants

•••
The whole Khao San Road area seems to require a certain uniform to enter it: hareem pants, parachute pants, drop-crotched pants- call them what you like, but if you ain't wearing them, you soon get seduced by the sheer scale of availability in the billions of stalls. You're likely to find yourself convincing youself that they're exactly what you need in y[...]

portraits from along the way: bianca in sao paulo

•••
In summer 2006 I came to Sao Paulo with plans to live there for about 3 months to learn perfect portuguese, maybe get a job and be oh so productive. But really I had unknowingly moved to the headquarters of party central and spent my days sleeping and my nights out partying. I'm pretty sure I had a total of 2 nights in during that time. So really, it hardly [...]

Portraits from along the way: Luke in Cairns

•••
Actually his name wasn't luke. I have next to no recollection of his name or what he was doing. We met on the bus to cairns (Australia) where I had plans to become a certified diver. When the bus arrived in the early am he and I stumbled to the hostel together where he spent just one night, maybe 2 while I hung out for a whole week learning to scuba-dive. I[...]

Bangkok's Streets of Yum

•••
When visiting certain Asian countries, travel guides often warn about the potential dangers of eating off the street. While I can very much confirm this to be true in India, in Thailand I've never heard of any problems. Luckily, because eating off the street belongs to the highlight of any day spent in this gorgeous country. With Bangkok as the culinary c[...]
