Top 10 Tips for Vegan Travel

•••
I've traveled abroad ever since I finished high school, but I've only been a vegan for about half a year now. Yet, I realised that traveling with a dietary requirement is quite different from traveling with an omni diet. It is harder at times, but certainly not impossible - sometimes even surprisingly easy and delicious! From the incredible vegan fare I f[...]

A city of cultures: Discovering the local side to Singapore

•••
It’s not everyday that the chief concierge of your hotel takes you out on a tour of his city. But here I am, bright and early in the lobby of the Shangri-La Singapore about to be taken out by Rajkumer, the Shangri-La’s chief concierge, a Singaporean of Indian descent and a man passionate about his city.

Food en route - how to snack pack

Getting to know my destination's food culture is one of my favourite things about travelling. Food and the way it is eaten teaches you so much about the place you are visiting and the people that are inheriting it. I find it truly inspiring to learn about our differences, as well as our (maybe unexpected) similarities through food. I don’t need an “inter[...]

7 Ways to Enjoy Life in Provence, France

•••
We all know France is beautiful, chic and more than a little sexy. We look to the French for fashion trends, for food inspiration and for an iconic landscape which drapes girls drinking red wine in black dresses against the backdrop of the twinkling Eiffel Tower. Perhaps most importantly, the unfathomable French resilience that has this proud nation standing[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Toronto

•••
Toronto had been on my bucket list for a very long time - the film festival, the beaches of Lake Ontario, the bustling food scene and the internationality of Canada's largest city have created a very particular image in my head, and I wanted to check it out for myself. After years of longing and dreaming I finally had the opportunity to visit at the end of a[...]
