Getting Around In the USA: the Craigslist Rideshare

•••
Back in March and April I traveled around Germany for a month and half, using rideshares from Mitfahrgalegenheit. Back in the US, car-less and anxious to visit different folks where Oakland public transit doesn't go, I was determined to find a similar alternative. If you've ever tried to travel around the States, you know that domestic flights are not cheap [...]

From New York to San Francisco - My USA trip itinerary

•••
Dear travelettes, I am stoked, exhilerated, breathless with exitement for my upcoming trip through the United States. Even though I've spent a little over 2 years in that country, I still feel like I barely even know it and that the world existing between San Francisco and New York (the 2 cities I spent those 2 years in) holds a lot for me to discover. [...]

The Road Trip Survey

•••
Dear travelettes, About a week ago I announced to you guys that I would be going on a road trip through half of the Unites States in about 6 weeks. This has been a long-time dream I have so I want to plan and prepare as much as possible. For this I need your help. I would love to find out about your experiences on road trips, so I, and everyone else inter[...]

ROAD TRIP: The perfect soundtrack

•••
I love my car. I love being out on the road, no matter for how long. You and I know how important it is to have the right play-list of songs for the ride. Whether you're singing along to your favourite tune with your friends on the backseat or just enjoying the ride alone, the right music makes every trip easy and fun. So a good soundtrack is a must. Obvious[...]

Road trip!!!

•••
Dear Travelettes, the other day, as I was chatting with my homeboy Anthony over in Austin, Texas a subject came up that has long been on top of my list-of-things-to-do-before-i-die-or-get-married. For dramatic effect I will recreate the conversation. Anthony: Dude, I have girl trouble, I might need some advice on this. Katja: Dump her, Anthony, she is[...]

Road tripping. Berlin-Paris.

•••
When going on a totally spontaneous road trip from Berlin to Paris on a Friday night with your best (…and flat-) mate, there are only three things needed: 1. A VW camper van 2. Three packs of Gauloises Rouge 3. A camera Arriving at our camping spot. Luckily, a VW camper van combines everything you need on 5 sqm: The bathroom. The living room wi[...]

The Great American Road Trip: ALABAMA!

•••
Let me start by saying that, for those who are unfamiliar, in the States, the "deep south" consists of Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Antebellum homes, mosquitoes galore, southern cuisine and southern comfort (the drink and the feeling) are all included in the "deep south" package. If you're wondering why Florida is not considered t[...]

The Great American Road Trip: from Alabama to Illinois

•••
In the last post I attempted to give some ideas on how to make a clean break for a new start or long trip, and left at our departure: me and two friends, stuffed into a Jeep on the way to Alabama from Illinois. The first thing I would suggest on a long road trip would be to, if at all possible, switch up drivers from time to time. Whoever ended up shoved in [...]

The great American road trip: First things first

•••
As i'm sure you're aware, travel prep can be pretty  stressful, especially when you have no clue how long you'll be on the road for. Weeks? Months? The rest of your twenties? This is when, thinking about my trip, I began to realize it is not vacation: it is life. So after careful research and consideration my master plan is Not to have a master plan. Genius,[...]
