How to…?

When I first let people know that I was having the baby, there seemed to be one phrase on everyone’s lips: “Oh, you will have to stop traveling then.” I was usually pretty quick to tell them that this would hardly be the case. Why would a baby stop me from seeing the world? I think the whole point of having children is to show it to them! I believe …

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 …

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 …

I recently caught myself blurting out something along the lines of “I think being a traveler is more like a mindset than a job description or a hobby”. This piece of utter wisdom may or may not have been the result of a rosé wine infused night in a Hoxton bar, but either way, it did make me think the morning after.
If traveling increases our life quality and I think …

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 …

“If I received a nickel every time I saw someone as beautiful as you, I would have five cents,” – kind of overflowing praise coming from an exotic Prince Charming, can make any traveler stop in her tracks. After all, the lad has just made one very logical and well-founded argument. However, after a few minutes of chemistry-radiating interaction, you might notice that your wallet has mysteriously vanished. And shortly …

John Lennon once said that “when we are afraid, we pull back from life. “ If I would have to state the most significant mistake that a person can make, I would argue that it’s the fear of making one. The top five regrets of dying were stated in a revealing article, posted to Huffington Post in 2013. A palliative nurse recorded the most claimed regrets and collected them into …

Waking up to the same piece of grey sky every morning. Walking down the street you walked down thousands of times, not even paying attention to the crazy people yelling at themselves on the corner anymore. Automatically doing those two steps into the bus, waiting for the familiar beep of your transport pass being scanned. Sitting on a chair all day that has become so familiar you know exactly which …

It can be assumed that if I’m a travel blogger, a Travelette and a perpetual traveller that my one big passion in life is travel.
Except it’s not.
My real passion – and the dream I suspect I’ll spend the rest of my days chasing – is to write stories. For me, there is nothing more rewarding, more exciting and more flipping good fun than making up people, places and putting them …
