Desert Flower - a great movie and an important subject

•••
Instead of going out last night, I decided to have a night in with some DVD's and my 2 boyfriends Ben and Jerry. For a long time I had been tiptoeing around the movie "Desert Flower", based on the life of Somali model and human rights activist Waris Dirie. In the past I had always heard nothing but rave revies about the book, so at least now I had to see the[...]

Star of the open road: the Gucci bike

•••
Dear Travelettes, meet my my latest obsession: Ever since I moved to Berlin I have been an avid bike-rider, because it's hands down, the quickest way of getting around in the city, it keeps you well in shape and there is just a great feeling of freedom when you ride past all those sad pedestrians who wished they could get to where they're going 5 t[...]

‘Dear Diary… today I saw the world’

•••
Yeah, I’ve been pretty lax with keeping up with sharing my travelling tales so for that, please accept my sincerest apologies. However, since my last post I have had the most amazing time in Thailand, which truly is ‘the land of smiles’. I’ve passed through Malaysia, dipped into Singapore before jetting down to New Zealand to meander my way up to Australia. [...]

The big travelettes survey

In December a good number of our readers took part in a survey with many questions we had, answers to which are hard to come by.
