How to travel Norway on a budget

•••
My dear motherland, Norway, is known as one of the world’s most expensive countries, but also one of the most beautiful (and yes, I am very objective in this case). When trying to sweet-talk Norway to people, the first thing I get asked about is if it’s true that a beer cost 10 euros and how one can afford to travel there. During my three years of studying i[...]

Volunteering in Guatemala - supporting women in the clothing industry

•••
My friend Julie from France and I wanted to volunteer somewhere this summer- the only question was - where? After a comprehensive internet research we decided to go to Guatemala. Why? Because the Mayan culture of Guatemala seemed quite interesting, it was not too far from the States (where I will be studying abroad soon) and on top of that we were offered th[...]

How to meet boys while traveling

•••
These last days we've talked so much about romance that happens while traveling that I felt it quite appropriate to give some tips to those who maybe, would like to meet a nice boy on the road, but are not sure how to meet him. When you find yourself single and ready to mingle there are more than a few ways to go about getting out there. If this rings any[...]

Escape the winter and win a trip to New Zealand

•••
Dear travelettes, While surfing the web for interesting travel ideas I stumbled over a competition to win a trip to New Zealand. Just when it starts to get dark and cold in Europe, you can escape to the beautiful beaches and unspoiled nature of New Zealand. The travel agency STA and the travel portal 4trips are making it possible for 14 lucky adven[...]

One night of Romance in the Carribbean

•••
Another day at the Caribbean Sea came to an end. Freshly showered I positioned myself in one of the comfortable hammocks of our hostel among the many palm trees. A fresh breeze of wind was blowing, perfectly complementing the weather after a very hot day at the beach. It didn´t take long until I fell asleep. When I woke up, it was through the sweet me[...]

Donation Based Yoga for Travelers

•••
Staying in shape while traveling is an always-present dilemma for vagabond ladies. While an easy way to get your daily exercise is to bring a pair of trainers and run, a lot can get in the way such as ankle and leg injury/sensitivity, poor air quality, winter weather, or unsafe streets. I like to do yoga at home, but find it hard to muster the discipline to [...]

5 items I would never go backpacking without

•••
When you first start backpacking, chances are you are not familiar with all the do's and don'ts that come with it. For example, you might stuff your backpack with clothes just to find out that once you are there (this applies to India, South East Asia and other hot climate backpacker favorites) it's actually very easy and cheap (often just $2 or $3) to buy c[...]

Essential chat-up lines to know while traveling

•••
Getting to grips with the lingo in a foreign country can be an interesting challenge for a traveller especially when you’re just passing through for a few days. I discovered that buying toothpaste in Ecuador is easier said than done, especially when the shopkeeper misunderstands your broken Spanish and is thrusting a packet of smoked ham in your face instead[...]

Notes on Packing the Right Camera

•••
Hey ladies, One of the biggest problems I encounter when packing for trips is not how many pairs of shoes I need or what shades of nail polish to leave home. No, I struggle the most with exactly what combination of cameras and gear to bring along. We Travelettes are very passionate about our photography and while we recognize that it's ultimately up the p[...]

School + Job = ...Travel?

•••
We here at Travelettes recently received a letter from a future-world traveler asking one of the most reasonable questions of them all: Where do you get the time and money to travel when working, studying, or both? As I can only type (facts) from my own experiences I will try to answer this question to the best of my ability. Sometimes I look back and a[...]
