How to keep your home safe when you travel

•••
Spending over a third of the year traveling, I am often away from home for weeks and months at a time. I feel lucky that so far nothing bad has ever happened, but every once in a while I hear stories from friends and acquaintances about robberies and those stories are usually pretty scary. So far I have had to rely on my own optimism and trust that everythin[...]

10 products you need for your summer trip

•••
As seasoned travelettes, our days of overpacking are pretty much numbered; we are far too professional these days to bring tons and tons of useless stuff on a trip. Instead, we've trained ourselves to focus on what truly matters - and I can assure you that clothing is not among those things (besides, it's usually way more fun to shop for clothes in the trave[...]

Now you can send real kisses to anyone - through your phone!

•••
2017 just got a little better because soon there will be a smartphone add-on that lets you send a kiss that someone else can feel, even if they are on the other side of the world! We present: the Kissenger. Someone at the Imagineering Lab at City University London has a heart for lovers (or maybe just a long distance boy/girlfriend?) and decided to give the [...]

6 (unexpected) tips to be a better photographer

•••
You've been there: scrolling along your Instagram and seeing all the pretty birds attending all the same events, one outfit better than another, posing together, posing apart, selfie here, duckface there. It was during during the last Coachella festival that I kept taking note of some instagrams of a particular photography style popping up on the accounts of[...]

From Blog to Business - 5 good tips to make it happen

•••
We were recently approached by tech giant Huawei about their current campaign for the new MateBook, where it's all about the new style of business in our city. The MateBook is essentially a lightweight laptop with a detachable screen, turning it into a tablet when needed. It comes with the Stylus Mate Pen which lets you scribble down notes or design a fancy [...]

Is this the best gadget for turning a blog into a business?

•••
As some of you may have noticed I haven't been as actively writing for Travelettes this past year as I used to be, because I had a baby and that kept me busy. Reeeaaallly busy. Mind you, it did not keep me from traveling and so my little guy, at 15 months old, has already been to 11 countries and spent half his life abroad in places like Thailand, Portugal [...]

How to buy a used camera online

•••
'New is always better' - or, at least, so they say. Let me in on a little secret - they are wrong. Sometimes used or second-hand is just as good (or even better). For example, when you compare a brand-new dress from a retail chain, which somehow every other girl on the street is sporting too, to a unique vintage dress from the 1970s; or that veteran road tri[...]

The ASUS Transformer Book T100 - the ideal laptop to travel with?

•••
I won't hide that I was more than a little excited to be asked to test-drive the new ASUS Transformer Book T100. In many ways the clever design of laptop and tablet in one is ideal and I really wish my Macbook Air had that same feature. I dont own a tablet so I find myself regularly feeling jealous at everyone I see who does have one, especially those who tr[...]

Keeping your gadgets safe and stylish

•••
When traveling, we usually carry some form of technology that requires a bit of care. We carry all sorts of gadgets to help us stay in contact with family at home and friends scattered around the globe. Not to mention we have to carry our beautiful cameras to capture all the worldly scenes we encounter. The thought of hearing that dreaded *CRUNCH* when thump[...]

DIY Sunday - Floating Back for your GoPro Camera

•••
Last year my GoPro camera went on a little tour to go on an discover the depths of the Atlantic ocean and was never again to be seen. In other words: I lost it. It happened during a minor surf accident when my camera fell in the water and disappeared within seconds. It wasn't even a week old. To expand the lifetime of my new GoPro camera, I decided to build [...]
