Every young, avid traveler dreads this moment: one fine day your mum and dad will show up to your temporary place of residence, all dead serious eyebrows wrinkled, to ask you when are you going to stop wandering and settle down. How you deal with this interrogative is highly critical, and might have a major effect on the endorsement about your travels for the next decades to come. Also, every …

What is it about certain holidays that draws us closer? Why do the bonds we create when we’re away from home feel so much stronger, so much quicker? How can just a few days make a group of strangers feel like they’ve known each other for years?
It’s the good times. Exploring and finding treasures. Jumping into crystal clear water. Dancing till we drop. Photo-bombing everyone. Failing at high-fives and laughing …

Bestival is the festival to hit up to celebrate the ebbing remnants of the UK summer. It explodes in a frenzy of glitter and fancy dress from 4th September – 7th September on the picturesque Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. And what better way to bid farewell to festival season then raving it up in this years fancy dress theme, Desert Island Disco?

Before you go sailing in Croatia, you need to ask yourself one thing: How much do you love the colour blue?
You see I thought I loved the colour blue, but I had no idea how much until last week when four other Travelettes and I met up to sail to the islands on the country’s Dalmatian coast. I dare say you would have the same realisation should you find yourself …

As we pulled up by the disused tractor next to the steep, red dirt driveway, which was definitely in the middle of nowhere, we exchanged looks with a slightly nervous gulp. Where the heck were we? And what was this place?
We had been on the road for about two hours in Portugal. We’d left Faro’s white heat and hit the road to head up the dusty Alentejo Coast that hugs …

A few weeks ago was my birthday, and for the first time in years I was not going to celebrate it in a big city, surrounded by a group of friends. This time, I didn’t feel like having a party. I wanted to spend it somewhere I’d never been before; to make the day an adventure. I was yearning for new horizons to explore – preferably of the spectacular kind. What I had …

I’m an innate planner, sometimes to a fault. The amount of research I spend on routes, hotels, places to eat and shop and be merry, is actually insane when I think about it. While I do that with the intention to have the best possible trip, I will admit that I am generally a bit of a control freak and I enjoy it too. Planning a trip is half the …

Who doesn’t love those slighty surreal photos with vibrant colors and beaming lights, when cars and trains are turned into streaks of light and the sky suddenly glows in hues you didn’t even notice before. While it certainly requires a bit more than a regular skill set to approach night photography, already considering a few basic steps will make a huge difference. And the good news is, you won’t have …

When asked about their favorite love story I’m sure many people would pick Romeo & Juliet right off the bat. There simply is an irresistible charm of the idea of two young lovers in Italy that has people fascinated. Surely that love story was the main reason for my excitement when I first traveled to Verona a few years ago. I wandered the streets wondering what it was like back …
