4 Mind-Nourishing Retreats To Book Right Now

•••
I used to cringe at the words all-inclusive and retreat. They rendered images in my mind of souvenir-filled cruise ship passengers and mid-day Mexican mai-tais. I imagined all-inclusive retreats to be selling myself short, or copping out of the true travel experience. But, the words have evolved in the travel industry and now expand to all variations of expe[...]

How to pack in 30-minutes flat

•••
With great trips should come great planning, but let's face it, life isn’t always that kind. Sometimes, we just need to know how to pack in 30-minutes flat and high-tail it out the door to the waiting cab/bus/train to catch that flight. We know that plane isn’t going to wait for anyone, so it’s best to have a plan of action for when packing time is slim! [...]

50 Invaluable Travel Tips for Europe

•••
At first a Europe trip sounds like the best way to spend your summer - and believe me, it really is. Then you start planning your itinerary, and realise that there are way over 30 countries covering an area bigger than the United States - each with their own language (more or less), culture and people. You want to hike to Trolltunga in Norway, see the Northe[...]

Only 2 Weeks Of Vacation? Here's How To Get The Most Out Of Your Time

•••
There is never enough time. Time to see, taste, touch, and explore all the places, cultures, and vast spaces in this world. Finding time to do the things we love outside of work is an ever-present problem. Last week in our Live Travelettes feed we had a lot of American ladies asking about traveling with only two weeks of vacation, as it is the hard truth of [...]

Food en route - how to snack pack

•••
Getting to know my destination's food culture is one of my favourite things about travelling. Food and the way it is eaten teaches you so much about the place you are visiting and the people that are inheriting it. I find it truly inspiring to learn about our differences, as well as our (maybe unexpected) similarities through food. I don’t need an “inter[...]

9 Travel Bloggers Spill their Beauty Secrets

•••
While some people can't wait to go on a holiday, wear Thai pants all day and stop spending half an hour styling their hair each morning, others want to keep up a minimum baseline of styling and make-up throughout their adventures. While there's nothing wrong with relaxing your routines in terms of appearance (and a trekking trip to the Himalayas might not be[...]

Things you should know when moving to India

•••
Welcome to India. Now close your eyes and forget everything you thought you “just knew” about this place. Re-open your eyes. Take everything in, the entire sensory experience. India is a place that has no true description. Talking about it as a nation is great when you consider everyone standing to sing the national anthem, at the movie theater, or celebrati[...]

101 little Habits that make you a Better Traveler

•••
When it comes to travel, there is of course no right and wrong. Everybody has their own way of experiencing the world. They set their own pace and are interested in a variety of different things. By better I therefore don't mean to say that one way to travel is better than the other. By better I simply mean ways to be more organised but also flexible; consci[...]

Top 5 Books to read on your next vacation

•••
Travel provides the opportunity to kick-back and relax, order one or two more cocktails than you normally would, and basically, do whatever you want whenever you want to do it. If you're anything like me, you also use this time to catch-up on all the latest novels. Whether you're passing time on a long train-journey or flight, snuggled up in bed on long lazy[...]

5 awesome things to do in Mallorca

•••
There is so much more to Mallorca than drunk Germans and endless parties in the hedonistic resorts of El Arenal and Magaluf - at least, that’s what I’d been told. Nevertheless, this Spanish island in the Mediterranean was never a top priority on my list of holiday destinations, but after I got the chance to spend a short trip there recently I quickly reali[...]
