Europe: Perfect for first time solo-travellers!

•••
Looking for romance? Culture? Fun? Good food and music? Diverse landscapes and plenty of historic sights? And on top of that you want to be safe while travelling? Then Europe is the place to be! Safety Europe is - despite a few places - a very safe continent. Political stable, no war, less religious beliefs that can make travelling (especially for wome[...]

Homemade Espresso on the Go!

•••
Hey ladies, I have to confess I have a huge coffee addiction. And as any others with similar afflictions know, traveling can cause an upset to our caffeination routines. Before I left for Europe I was rather used to soy lattes or watery American drip coffee. Living in Budapest without a coffeemaker, I adjusted to instant coffee from a jar. In Bosnia and C[...]

•••

Below, find my top 10 of favourite travel songs: 1. Moby - Porcelain ...Driving alone with my 4WD at the endless Cable Beach in Broome, Australia (God, I miss that car!!!) 2. KT Tunstall [...]

Travel Packing List: Boys vs. Girls

•••
This year, my (male) flatmate traveled through India for a few weeks. And to prepare for the trip, even this most chaotic human being on the planet spontanious contemporary made a packing list. I happened to find it in our kitchen yersterday and couldn't help but compare it with the list I had made before travelling to Australia. Ladies, forget about gend[...]

When the drugs don't work

•••
Picture this: You’re backpacking alone in a tropical exotic country, far far away from home with all its comforts, amidst language barriers that are amusingly out in full force, travelling with companions randomly met on your journey… then you wake up at 2am throwing up last nights stir-fried chicken and vegetables with a fever and feeling like you’ve been f[...]

Travel links of the week

•••
1. I had to rub my eyes for a minute or 2 when I read this article by the lost girls on cruises for less than $1000. The  cheapest being as low as $200 leaving from Salerno, Italy, heading to La Goulette, Palma de Mallorca, Toulop, and Genoa. Sweet Deal! 2. For those who want to spend even less than that to spend a few days on the water, read up on Seth K[...]

Dear Ryanair - you suck.

•••
It's pretty common knowledge that Ryanair is probably the cheapest airline out there. Everyone knows that they are the biggest crooks in the history of airlines but we all book them anyways, don't we? My first "I'll never fly Ryanair again" situation was when I flew from Düsseldorf/Weeze (which is actually their first trick: they are not even allowed to c[...]

Dubious achievements in travel - it doesn't get much worse than this

•••
The National Geographic posted this hilarious video on their travel blog and it made me laugh so much that I had to post it here for you guys to check it out. Watching it, all the mishaps that happened during my travels suddenly seemed a little bit smaller. I'd even go with another broken foot before I live through the stuff shown in this clip. video [...]

Food Blogs from Italy

•••
Dear Travelettes, Preparing for an upcoming trip usually means a lot of reading. Be it in guidebooks, articles, blogs, forums - going into your trip well prepared much increases your chances of seeing all the good stuff and not missing out on stuff the brochure from your hotel doesn't mention. And so it is that for my trip to Italy in 4 weeks I've begu[...]

New York, I love you (but you're bringing me down)

•••
New York and I have been enjoying a love/hate relationship ever since I first set foot in this town at the tender age of 18, equipped with a homemade ID stating that I was 22 and a grand appetite to discover all things Americana. Before moving there in summer 2006, ending my world trip that had just taken me through 25 countries and 5 continents, I had on[...]
