My trip

“Isn’t this the coldest area of Norway?”, my mum asked nervously when I told her that I planned to go to Trøndelag in Central Norway. But minus 30 degree celsius is luckily not the only thing waiting for you in this region – that only happens during a few days in winter. No, Trøndelag is a region full of surprises – and I mean the good kind.
When I recently introduced …

Planning a regular holiday can be stressful, especially if it’s a short one and you want to squeeze in as much as possible in as little time as you have. The epitome of this is when you have one day only somewhere. One night in Bangkok may have been enough for Murray Head, but is it for a Travelette? That’s when you get a handy 24-hours guide that puts it …

San Francisco is many different things to many different people. And some of those people have been there for a long time, baking bread since the late 19th century, opening clubs in Depression era 1930′s, erm, fighting battles and such. As I had a whirlwind 48 hours to spend in San Francisco, I knew I would only be scratching the surface of what the city has to offer. However, this took …

I genuinely believe that hiking in Norway is one of the best things a human being could possibly do on a long weekend. Walking through, wait for it, 50 shades of green for hours and hours, armed with a map, a bottle of water and a camera, and then finally arriving at the hut completely exhausted, you will feel like you’ve just discovered a whole new level of life.

That exact …

Women can do amazing things – they can beat the odds and fly across the Atlantic like Amelia Earhart in 1928, or sail around the world on their own like teenager Laura Dekker, or adopt 40+ children off the streets of Nepal to give them a home like Maggie Doyne. They can change our perception of the world with their films or art, they can fight sexism by broadening their …

Mexico’s Day of the Dead is a complex holiday full of colour, morbid humour, deep sentimentality, celebration, and heartache. On the eves of November 1 and 2, the dead are welcomed with open arms into the land of the living. Not only are the dearly departed invited back, but they are the guests of honor.
In preparation, and to entice them to the party, treat-laden altars are beautifully created with the favourite …

There appear to be two kinds of people on this world. Those who go on holiday and are happy to spend its entirety at the hotel pool or beach, interrupted only by meal times, preferably as part of an all-inclusive deal. And then there are those who go to a place and want to see and do everything. Explore the city, go snorkeling, try 3 different restaurants a day and …

Can you name two things that Norway is famous for? Exactly, fjords and northern lights. As Trondheim isn’t particularly famous for either of them (unless you are very lucky in the deepest of winter), this city in central Norway, in a region called Trøndelag, is rarely found on traveller’s itineraries. It is not the Capital of Northern Lights like Tromsø, or surrounded by breathtaking fjords like Bergen or Ålesund. To …

Do you remember when I took over the Travelettes’ Instagram account and took you all with me to Tuscany for a long and lazy weekend near Lucca at the end of last month?
We had fun, didn’t we? Alright, I admit it’s possible I had more fun than you but hey, you could have been somewhere warmer, sunnier and closer to more delicious foods than a girl can eat in four …

As you know I grew up in the western part of the fantastic city Vienna in Austria. Due to its infrastructure and cool vibe its standard of living is incredibly high. My by far favourite thing about the city is that whether I boarded the tram towards the centre or the outskirts, I would reach either in about 20 minutes. Therefore going for a hike, a …
