Camping makes my heart beat faster – bonfire, BBQs and picnics, a comfy sleeping bag, being woken up by the sun and watching a beautiful sunset over the hills. That a camping trip does not always work out that way has been stated before, but ever since I moved to the UK I realized that the cooler temperatures of the north make for a very pleasant camping experience. When German …

As Caroline showed with her love letter to London, clearly the idea of being in a love with a city like you would be in love with a person is not an unknown concept. I too, have at least in my mind written love letters to or thrown plates at cities at one point or another. If you look at my track record I am not quite promiscuous, but I …

I’ve always been a frequent flyer – taking at least four flights a month – but it’s only in the last twelve months that I’ve become a savvy frequent flyer.
What I mean by this, is that for a long time I sort of bumbled my way through booking flights, boarding them, suffering delays and long layovers and getting lost in airports. I was beginning to hate flying. Then I remembered my …

To me Porto felt like home from the first moment. There is something about this city – indefinable in the beginning, but clear to the mind at the end of my stay. It has a unique beauty that puts a spell on its visitors and it is no surprise that so many of them end up staying there permanently or at least seriously consider it. I spent a year in …

Remember this picture of me when Katja first introduced me as a new Travelette? I had just attempted my first ever official camping trip. Well, trip sounds a bit too grand, it was one weekend, but nevertheless I was proudly wearing my borrowed headlamp and drinking my pink champagne. The headlamp would be useless a few hours later as I was fumbling with the clip and lost all batteries in …

Wouldn’t it be great if mermaids really did exist? One of my favourite films growing up was Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ and the idea of floating around in a fantastical, underwater kingdom and basking on exotic shores has probably contributed to my usual choice of travel destination. Keep your mountains and deserts – take me to the coast! Plus they had some pretty serious tropical tune-age going on down there …

The iconic Glastonbury festival kicked off on the weekend and all who couldn’t (or forgot!) to get a ticket wept in their bed and cursed all the happy festival-goers. I for one gave the finger to all the happy instagram shots and tweets about the festivities… #IdontCareButAmLying… But don’t despair as Glastonbury is merely kicking off the UK’s awesome festival scene and is acting as a reminder for everyone to …

Summer is going strong here in Europe and as I am experiencing the fifth sunny day in Scotland in a row (!) I also look forward to our upcoming trip to Croatia. Remember, almost four months ago I told you about the first Travelettes trip with all team members powered by Sailing.hr. We will meet in Split and sail around the Croatian islands for one week together with an entire …

Austria’s capital, Vienna is famous for imperial architecture, classical music, its high quality of life and tourist swarms from all over the world. The main attractions like St. Stephan’s Cathedral, the imperial residences Hofburg and Schönbrunn and the imposing buildings along the road Ringstraße aside, Vienna has many highlights to offer. Escaping the tourist crowds is hardly possible, but with these insider tips you will at least be able to …

My three favourite things in life are probably Canada, cameras and boys (yehep, right in that order). After a road trip through the country of maple syrup, weed and flawless natural beauty last summer, I decided to move to Vancouver some time soon. But before all of that is going to happen, I’m keen on maintaining a steady flow of inspiration usually in the shape of a colourful Instagram feed …
