Skip the Metro: Paris is best explored by foot!

•••
Perhaps one of the greatest things about Paris is the metro. It’s fast and it’s reliable. It’s wonderful. That is, if you don’t mind being underground. My first two trip to Paris lasted for about five days each - an acceptable amount of time someone would spend in the city during a vacation. When I returned to the city for a third time, I wasn’t very i[...]

How to Turn Into a Local when Traveling Solo

•••
As I sit in my beautiful bedroom in Krakow, I think about how I don’t ever want to leave. Before I moved to Krakow I had been traveling to Poland several times. The decision to make this city my new home as well as a relatively smooth transition from being a backpacker to becoming an expat wouldn’t have been possible if it hadn’t been for my attitude as a tr[...]

I love the hills, th[...]

•••
On the border of England and Wales, Hay-on-Wye is world famous for its literary festival, which runs in May and June. But this sleepy, charming town deserves a visit at other times too. What’s extraordinary about Hay-on-Wye is that you can spend hours out in the wilderness of the rugged Black Mountains, with only sheep and shaggy ponies for company. A[...]

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[...]
