7 Tips for hiking the Great Wall of China

•••
You can’t visit Beijing without making a stop at the Great Wall of China. One of the Wonders of the World, the Wall is over 13,000 miles long and 2000 years old. There’s restored sections of the Wall where you can visit without getting dirty, but if you really want to experience the Great Wall of China, I recommend taking a hike! Hiking out in the “wild” [...]

A Road Trip through Tunisia

•••
Last summer, I spent two months interning in a software company in Tunisia. During my brief stay, I was surprised at the historical riches present in this country. Carthaginians, Romans and Byzantines have all passed through this land, leaving their mark behind, buried over and over by sand and wind. During a week long trip throughout the country, I also dis[...]

Why my Adventure Body is the new Beach Body

•••
I see it all the time on social media, Facebook statuses, Instagram posts, and even tweets, all from women who say they need to work on their ‘beach bod’ or ‘bikini bods’. This is often due to summer being right around the corner, or more likely in my social circle, a trip they have coming up. Any time they may be seen on a beach, or in a pool I suppose. But[...]

When I returned to the city for a third time, I wasn’t very i[...]

15 awesome things to do in San Francisco

•••
I have a thing for California, I guess I told you so already. San Francisco makes me blush, I’m that kind of girl! When I rode my rattletrap rental bike down the cities’ hills for the first time, just a few years ago it happened -  from that moment on I could not stop thinking about the gloomy clouds tenderly petting the Pacific surface. I love the hills, th[...]

10 amazing Cities for Digital Nomads & Travelettes

•••
Just recently, I stumbled across a highly dissatisfying list of the coolest cities to live in for young people. Unfortunately most of the named places were super-expensive and far from spectacular - so us Travelettes got together and worked on our own list of dream cities. We're already scattered across the Europe and the US, but if you ask us, we could spre[...]

Experience Glastonbury - A Festival for all your Senses

•••
I cannot believe I am here. My first thought while standing in front of the colorful Glastonbury sign overlooking the huge festival area. After having bought the tickets last October, not knowing which tragedies would cross my life's path the following months - including a cancer diagnosis. Now I am close to tears, thankful and looking forward to some of[...]
