Before my recent 10-day trip to India there were a lot of questions to be asked. Why would you go there? Is it safe? Why are you taking that risk? – those were the questions my mum was asking. Which vaccinations should I get? How to avoid biting monkeys? What will I eat that is not too spicy? – that would be my best friend, who was going to join me. And finally, the questions …

A holiday by the beach is always a good idea, but certainly summer time and those long hot days by my work place are the time of the year when I long for the cool blue of the ocean the most. Nothing beats leaving the sticky heat of the city behind, and leaving for a breezy adventure on a Greek island, the Caribbean or even South East Asia.

Even packing for a …

Hurray!! Summer is practically here and I can positively feel the sun calling my name and feel the sea breeze in my hair. Now is the time to get planning for those summer trips and see where your summer holidays will take you!
I, for one, cannot wait to get in the heat and forget about the trauma of winter (hey, I’m a summer baby!) so am now deviously planning some …

After we reposted Katja’s article on How to be cool while traveling, we received some requests from readers looking to maximize their wardrobe, within the confines of budget and baggage restrictions. The Travelettes came together and discussed our best tips for looking good on the road, but packing light, avoiding those lame checked baggage fees. Here are some tips you can use the next time you travel – and we …

The southwest of England is famed for its rolling countryside, sunny beaches and deep history…. But you would never suspect the southwest to contain a city that is not only stuffed full of history, but also paramount to the fashion scene of England! In this corner of the UK, you can spy the mysterious Stonehenge; explore the stunning Cotswolds; catch great live music in Bristol (where I currently live) and …

Finding the perfect piece of luggage is a bit of a trial and error affair. We’ve all been seduced by fancy looks over functionality. We’ve all thought we’ve invested in a bag that would ‘last a lifetime’, only to find that two weeks of hauling around on buses/trains/planes has caused it to split right at the wrong time. We’ve all wanted to have the perfect bag that would apply to …

When it comes to large, established department stores, Harrods seems to always be the tourist fixation when visiting London… but think of Liberty when you want to get less mainstream and more eclectic. Sure, both of these places are incredulously expensive but sometimes, when a girl has to window shop, she might as well do it at the most exclusive and worldly superstore of Britain’s most fabulous city!

Nestled comfortably somewhere between …

Travel and fashion go well together. We like to look the part while conquering the world with our camera and designers have always looked to travel for inspiration. Sometimes they travel through time, visiting ancient places with ruins long lost and bustling skirt hems long shortened and replaced by trousers. Sometimes they travel through the world, either literally getting up close or from afar via recounts of adventurers, anthropologists or …

I’m sure you’ve heard of hula hoop superstar Marawa the Amazing: she has spun hoops on stage with Major Lazer and Olivia Newton John (not together — that would be weird), on runways for Kenzo, and made it to the semifinals of Britain’s Got Talent. What you probably didn’t know, though, is that Marawa is also an accomplished Travelette!

“I grew up with nomad printed in my genes”, Marawa writes on her …

There is no denying it, the life of a travel blogger comes with many perks. We get to go on trips to amazing places, meet people we’d never normally have met and every once and so often we get to test drive cool stuff. Still my girly favorite product to review: shoes.

The popular Spanish brand Camper has invited me to literally walk in their shoes for a day as part …
