Writing for Looking Good No Matter What

•••
Dear travelettes, I was recently asked to contribute to a great new project called Looking Good No Matter What, a beauty blog sponsored by Hansaplast where 4 established beauty professionals blog about what they know. Or maybe I should say 3 beauty professionals and myself. The other editors are Lynne from Lynne.TV and FragdieGurus.de, Chris from 30 ans e[...]

‘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. To find out whether or not we were the only ones who occasionally engage in casual sex when on holiday or who go for days without showering, we asked you guys to tell us anomynously how things were for you. This is the evaluati[...]

World trip journal - flashbacks of a trip around the world.

•••
When in September 2005 I embarked on a trip around the world I left with great plans and ambitions.

I will publish those emails here for you guys to hear my story. Maybe it'll ins[...]

Film recommendation: Into the wild

•••
Dear travelettes I realise that it's not the most forward thing to recommend a movie that is already 2 years old but in this case I will have to make an exception. I just finished watching 'into the wild' and I am still shaking. This movie is about a the true story of a 22year-old dude who graduates from college and then gives away $24.000 to charity t[...]

Ngawang: Story of a political refugee from Tibet becoming a nun in India

•••
Travel is the best time to educate yourself about what's going on in the rest of the world, it's often enough to simply keep an open mind and look at all the options out there. When I learned that it was OK to visit the Tibetan nuns in McLeod Ganj, India, I didn't hesitate to take advantage of this unique opportunity. I was eager to get to know the women the[...]
