8 Exceedingly British Treats to Try in London

•••
As a Brit, I’m happy to admit that we are a nation of uninventive eaters. Besides the humble Yorkshire pudding, and adopting curry as our own, we have pretty much stayed off the world’s culinary map -and for good reason. Interestingly, we do have a lot of great restaurants and the food scene in London is amazing. But it revolves heavily around the food of ot[...]

7 Reasons to put Crete on your Travelmap

•••
Who doesn't think of whitewashed houses and blue windows to the backdrop of the even bluer ocean when they think of Greece? So did I for the longest time until I actually took my first trip to Greece and visited Thessaloniki and Halkidiki. There was nothing blue and white about either yet I still loved them both. So when I started to plan my Greek return I j[...]

Why I fell in love with the Middle East and why you should too

•••
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 [...]

Witnessing the Display of Fall Colors in Scotland

•••
Fall is one of my favourite times to travel around Scotland. The offseason is the perfect time for a road trip - not only are there fewer tourists on the road and everything becomes more affordable, but the landscape also presents itself from its best side! Two of the best regions in Scotland to witness the fiery display of fall colours are Perthshire and th[...]

A Travelettes playlist - our favorite songs en route

•••
While we really love arriving at a new place we also dig the being en route part: this bag full of emotions in advance: anticipation, excitement, agitation. We’re talking roadtrips, busrides, boot tours, airport and plane scenarios. Such an important part of every journey… Long hours of gazing at the streets or into the skies, dreaming of the beach, th[...]

Is El Raval Barcelona's coolest neighborhood?

•••
I was only 19 when I first went to Barcelona. And I didn't come as tourist. I arrived with just one suitcase and €270 cash in my pocket, ready to pay for my room in an apartment I would share with 4 other people from 4 different nations. That room was in a part of Barcelona called El Raval, making up one side of the infamous La Rambla, the Barrio Gotico's ug[...]

Roadtrip through Uganda: Finding Gorillas, Chimps & Lions

•••
I don't have a bucket list when it comes to traveling. I don't even know why I don't; maybe I am scared that I can't tick everything off in one lifetime. Mind you, I have had the privilege to do many bucket list worthy things so far: see orangutans in the wild, have a huskie puppy named after me, and scuba dive in the Maldives. As you can tell the common d[...]

My (mostly) Eastern European Road Trip Experience

•••
I am admittedly one of those travellers who loves to plan. Not because I like being super organised and enjoy sticking to rigid itineraries; but so that I can see and experience as much as I possibly can when I travel. It’s similar to the age-old expression of ‘biting off more that you can chew,’ but in my case, its cities and adventures. I’m sure that I am [...]

12 Hours in Brighton - A day trip from London

•••
I fell in love with the seaside of southern England on a trip to Southampton earlier this year and when my partner planned our vegan foodie getaway to London this autumn, I knew I wanted to return to the coast for a brief stint. And what better city is there, to go to on a day trip from London, than Brighton! And so we booked our tickets, made a list of s[...]

Why you should attend the World Nomad Games

•••
I don't quite know how and why I even applied but when I got invited to attend the World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan I was mainly confused, wondering what I had gotten myself into. I had never been to Central Asia and the only nomads I knew were of the digital kind. Yes, I am a traveler and adventurous at times but my adventures evolve around scuba diving, saf[...]
