7 Totally Underrated Cosmetics for Travel

•••
Beyond the endless Bastise cans and overpriced coconut oils of this world, lies a wholly underappreciated group of slightly odd essentials for your capsule cosmetics bag.

10 Practical Christmas Gifts for Travelers

•••
Every December (without exception) me and my mother do the annual pre-Christmas standoff in which she insists she must buy me something, and I insist that she doesn’t. It’s not that I don’t appreciate her gifts, its just that the spare room in my parent's house looks like a graveyard of non travel-friendly items that have spent the last ten years gatheri[...]

Who doesn't think of whitewashed houses and blue windows to the backdrop of the even bluer ocean when they think of Greece?

•••
Finding my feet through all the hustle and bustle, the hypnotizing sound of the Arabic language singing in my ears, the smell of cardamom filling my nose from the streets. The sun laying on my skin like velvet. I remember why it was so easy to for me to fall in love with the Middle East the first time. 4 years living in Saudi Arabia and travelling [...]

•••
It’s a cliche I hear in the travelling world all the time. People who declare that they were born to travel. They were brought up strapped to their mothers back hiking mountains in Nepal, nay – practically squeezed out in the depths of the Amazon, midwifed by Yanomami village elders. Travelling to foreign lands is for some people all they’ve known gro[...]
