Most girls I know have a certain special item of clothing they can’t bear to travel without. A go to dress; some comfy shorts; that perfectly battered pair of trusty Converse that are just about to fall apart… Well, for Jennifer Salvage that item happens to be a little bit more unusual. You see, Jennifer travels with her wedding dress.

They say your friends are the family you choose and if that’s the case, I’m more than happy to take all the credit for the family I’ve built around me and in particular, the girls I’ve welcomed into my life.

It’s here! For those of us in the Northern hemisphere, summer is officially here. Along with the new season come promises of hot days, chilled drinks, pool fights, nature adventures, spontaneous road-trips, shoes-and-pants-optional, enjoying the last bits of light with friends around endless barbecues… and travel! travel! travel!

Let’s be honest, do you ever lie in the sun in the park or your balcony with your eyes closed and dreaming of the Caribbean sun kissing your skin? Of exploring a faraway and hardly accessible place?

It’s safe to say us Travelettes have seen a beautiful sight or two in our time. Whether that’s rainbows over cascading waterfalls, luminous pink sunsets sinking into the ocean, jungle temples catching the first light of dawn or the spread of twinkling, big city lights at night… The world is a beautiful place and there’s a hell of a lot of it out there.

Knowing what technology to take on an overseas trip can sometimes be a bit of a confusing and intimidating affair.

Waking up to the same piece of grey sky every morning. Walking down the street you walked down thousands of times, not even paying attention to the crazy people yelling at themselves on the corner anymore.
