Top 10 tips for flying with small children

•••
Writing any sort of guideline for kids is always tricky business. Kids are no less unique and different in their ways as adults are and to pretend that one-size-fits-all type of stuff could really apply to each and every child is utter nonsense. What has however worked for me with my child was reading different opinions and various guides just like this one [...]

How to pack for a cold Europe trip with a carry-on

•••
I'm a big fan of buying cheap flights to European destinations to spend a long weekend unwinding and sightseeing. I like to scour the net, jump on every EasyJet newsletter that pops up in my inbox, do random searches on Skyscanner and indulge in holiday fantasies until a cheap flight appears and I can spontaneously buy it.

The Travelettes Itinerary: How to travel Vietnam in one month

I'm afraid, something really bad is going to happen soon. I think the sun and the moon and Earth have joined up and are planning a terrible coup: the end of summer. As the last rays of sunlight kiss my face, slowly making space for the icy winds of northern winter nights, I remember the adventures this summer has brought me. I want to go back to South Tyrol [...]

How to Take Good Night Shots
