15 things to do while waiting at the airport

•••
I feel like I’ve spent most of this year at airports - which of course isn’t true - but time seems to pass extra slowly until take-off, right? Well, except for this one time in Frankfurt when I read what must have been a fantastic book and missed the gate change announcement… and the flight. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the book title but man, that was an[...]

How to Get Comfortable with Traveling

•••
I'm not talking about homesickness here - at least, not entirely. Traveling is one of my main passions in life, and yet I still experience an uneasy restlessness when I'm in a new place. It doesn't matter how amazing the destination is, I simply cannot settle. It's something we don't like to talk about for fear of being regarded as less of an '[...]

20 Things To Go Do By Yourself

•••
There is something to be said for doing things alone, for forging your own path and moving through life to the beat of your own drum. It is a trait we admire in solo adventurers like Cheryl Sayed in 'Wild', or the brave young man Christopher McCandless as he enters the woods never to return home again in 'Into the Wild.' There is something alluring and magne[...]

30 Awesome things to do in Edinburgh

•••
I'm not surprised that Edinburgh is the second most popular city in the UK for international visitors. London of course is leading the list, but Edinburgh sees about 13 million tourist every year! People come to see the medieval maze of courtyards, lanes and close, or the towering castle up on the hill; they come for the festivals during summer or a very spe[...]

10 things you should know before a trip to Australia

•••
Even if you haven't been, you probably think that you've got a good idea of Australia. Whether it's prawns on the Barbie, "G'day mate", sun-bleached surfers or sun hats with dangling corks, everyone's pretty familiar with the Aussies. But these stereotypes don't really scratch the surface of what a natural beauty this country is, nor the depth of culture. [...]

How to Visit Tahiti on a Budget

•••
Four years ago, my best friends and I were planning our big trip around the South Pacific and of course we wanted to visit some of the beautiful islands. The only problem was that we were on a budget and we had heard that Tahiti was one of the most expensive islands on the planet. But surprise, surprise: we were wrong! The biggest expense we made that day wa[...]

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[...]
