10 trips to do before you get married

•••
I feel like the title of this post needs a little bit of explaining. Of course, I'm not saying that once you get married, the traveling stops. In fact, if you love travel as much as me, being able to travel with or without your partner after you get hitched should be a requisite to even say yes in the first place. Then again, maybe you're not the type who wa[...]

Women on the Trail: Hiking Fjällräven Classic Sweden

•••
Nervously, I shoulder my backpack and carry it across the campsite. Doesn't feel too bad - I've carried heavier things before! Just never for this long... After a few steps I stop, standing before my judge - the scale hanging off a tree, ready to tell me the awful truth. I take off my backpack and set it to the ground - big mistake. I struggle to lift it hig[...]

10 awesome things to make your city trip a success

•••
Early fall is here, and it's the perfect time to take a city trip. The sun isn't so hot, the storms aren't so intense, and the brilliance of autumn leaves creates a perfect backdrop for walking, sightseeing, bar/restaurant hopping, and generally drinking in the atmosphere of an urban landscape.

•••

But there’s one more option – going wild! And that's exactly what I did a few month[...]

Hotels we love - Shangri-La Villingili in the Maldives

•••
From the moment I first set foot on Villingili island I was in heaven. Someone handing me a coconut decorated with a frangipani flower was proof of that, in my book. I was taken directly to my villa, no annoying waiting around the reception, just holiday bliss from the first minute. It had secretly been my dream for a long time to experience the famed bliss [...]

10 documentaries to change how you see the world

•••
What I love about documentaries is that they open a window onto new people, places and cultures. Film makers can take you to locations that it might otherwise be difficult, if not impossible, to access. And not only do documentaries give you the opportunity to learn about life in other places, but they also have the amazing capacity to change the way we see [...]

An Ode to Fall in Europe

•••
A forest ablaze in crimson and amber, the heady scent of wood fires and roasting chestnuts and the satisfying crunch of fallen foliage underfoot. When I close my eyes and think of fall, this is the picture that is conjured immediately in my mind. One that makes me giddy with happiness and never fails to bring a smile to my face - though it is an image tha[...]
