Traveletting

‘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[...]

Travelettes – the survey: The catastrophe day

•••
A while ago, the travelettes asked you to answer some of our most burning questions in a survey. We wondered about your best and worst travel experiences, about failures and mishaps as well as the time when you laughed and loved on the road. Many of you told us about wonderful travel experiences, but some also missed your flights, were robbed and one poor gi[...]

On Running (without heels)

•••
It's cheap, it's exotic and it's so so so good. When traveling you often find yourself surrounded by culinary goodness every step of the way. And because you're open and worldly you know that you cannot just order a salad when the restaurant you're in has just won a price for its outstanding curry or chocolate dessert. When you're on the road mirrors are [...]

Saying goodbye isn't easy (unless you do it drinking punch and wearing costumes)

•••
I don't think I could have timed it more perfectly: my last weekend in England and an American Apparel hosted Halloween Burlesque night in Bristol?! Hell yes. Talk about a Bon Voyage party in style! It was the perfect opportunity to scrap together some family and friends, dress up, hit the bottle and paint the town blood red. The timing of  a great night an[...]

It's the final countdown.

•••
Today, at precisely 4pm, I lifted a delicious glass of wine with my poor injection riddled arm (vaccine-galore) to toast to Thailand. I have finally finished my last week at work after massively stressful times of having to call about thirty women to book appointments due to a postal strike. Talk about the perfect farewell week at my hospital administration [...]

Culture Shock: USA TO DEUTSCHLAND

•••
In my photography I have a tendency to view everything as an alien might, snapping pictures mainly of things involving repetition or orderly shapes. This outlook on life made it extremely easy for me to photograph Berlin when I arrived at Alt Tegel airport. The first thing I learned: Germans love their recycling. The most difficult part of the recycli[...]

The Eleventh Commandment

•••
‘Thou Shalt Pick Thy Travelling Partner Carefully’ Let me introduce my friend Alicé. Assuming I make it through the two months travelling alone in Thailand, I’ll be meeting up with this light-haired lass in Kuala Lumpur in the new year. Originally, we were going to be travelling together for the whole adventure with added trips to Vietnam, Cambodia and L[...]
