The Travelettes guide to Innsbruck

•••
You may have heard of Innsbruck as the ski and snowboard capital of the Alps and the perfect place to stay for those who are up for a more urban environment after some hours in the slopes. What you might not realise is that it's also a sweet destination in summer for anyone enjoying a great outdoor holiday complete with hiking tours, mountain biking, rafting[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Thai Massage

•••
She can’t have been more than five feet tall, but when she asked me to turn onto my back I did and closed my eyes exhaling and suppressing a “this is the life” smile. Suddenly, in one swift unexpected movement she was sat astride me and had placed the palms of her hands on either side of my pelvis. She pushed down. Hard. And she didn’t move for 10, 20, err, [...]

The Travelettes Guide to Surviving Khao San Road

•••
After returning from my recent trip to Thailand, people asked what my highlight was. It was definitely different from my first trip to the country of smiles and Pad Thai noodles, all three years ago (wow, time flies!). My new answer was Bangkok. The capital city it was this time! I know we've been going on about our love for Bangkok before, but Thailand gets[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Ålesund, Norway

•••
Imagine colorful and ornamented Art Nouvou bulidings framed by a postcard scenery of mountains and fjords. My hometown, Ålesund, has been voted the most beautiful town in Norway, and not without reason. Its beauty is widely recognized (I'm not just saying this because I'm from there), even The Times are big fans. Located on the Norwegian west coast, it's jus[...]

The Travelettes TV Guide to the Catalan Pyrenees

•••
Spain is probably one of the most diverse countries I know. On one hand you have the Balearic Islands with their party people AND gorgeous landscape. On the other hand you have the Canary Islands with their eternal spring and gorgeous landscapes. However, both are completely different to one another. And then finally there is the mainland with fascinating[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Perth

•••
Perth was nothing like what I expected. Located in Western Australia (WA) and being the most isolated city in the world, I expected it to be a very small condensed place with all the excitement residing in the city centre. In fact, the fun lies across the entire expanse of Perth throughout many suburbs which if not explored; means you haven’t fully seen Pert[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Palma, Majorca

•••
I have been to Palma de Mallorca a couple of times already. Despite the ongoing cliché of drunken, half naked people sipping sangria through giant straws out of red buckets the Spanish island has a lot to offer. When visiting Majorca, I mainly enjoy life in the South of the island, a big glass of Horchata in hand, overlooking white beaches, turquoise sea and[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Melbourne

•••
Melbourne is sometimes incredibly stressful, and I find myself getting anxious and on edge in my free time and days off from work. “But it’s so cultural!! You must be in love with the city!!”, I hear you Travelettes cry, and yes that is correct. However, there is so bloody much to see, do, eat, drink, explore and discover, that I constantly find myself writi[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Festivals

•••
Gone are the days when music festivals were only about pot-bellied heavy metal fans and men who didn't shower for three days in a row. I've drunk my share of 10am-beers whilst sat in a fold-up camping chair on a muddy field (and thoroughly enjoyed it, too!)... but especially in recent years, festival culture has become a lot more diverse and than that. [...]

Travelettes recommend - summer goals

•••
Thanks to student flair, we recently came across a wonderful tumblr called summer goals, posting pictures of the things we should aim to do this summer. Swimming in an ocean, lounging by the lake, picknicking in a field, eating rasberry ice-cream, watching the sunset from a rooftop with all your friends, going on a road trip, camping out in the woods - you g[...]
