Top tips for Lisbon with kids

•••
Lisbon and I have quite some history together and the better part of it evolves around me as a mother. It was here that I came when my son was only 4 months old. The place I chose to spend the first leg of winter in as by no means I was keen to spend it in Germany. At the time, this was in 2014, I had rented an apartment in Graca, walked around lots, took sh[...]

The Family Hotel in South Tyrol that everyone is talking about

•••
Had you asked me a few years ago whether I would one day be keen to travel to a family hotel, I would have probably reacted with disbelief. But then life happened and I became a mom and it's true what they say: when the kids are happy, the parents are happy! That's definitely true for me, so if I can provide my little guy with the holiday of a lifetime that [...]

The Travelettes Guide to South Australia

•••
I may be slightly biased, being born and raised in this wonderful part of the world, but I stand firmly behind my statement that South Australia is one of the most underrated destinations in the Southern Hemisphere. It is astounding to me that this beautiful pocket of Australia is so often overlook by travelers who flee to the big smoke of Sydney or the beac[...]

Getting to know Havana’s travel quirks

•••
‘Havana ooo na na, half of my heart is in Havana ooo na na’. Ah, the song of last summer on everyone’s lips. Ironic how within months of this song being all over my radio, half of my heart was indeed in Havana (ooo na na). I’m a city girl. I love the convenience of rolling out of bed and heading for a coffee. Popping to the market on a lunchtime. I t[...]

The only 3 things you need to know about Bacalar- Mexico’s secret paradise

•••
When I first started planning my trip to Mexico here’s what I imagined. Enjoying the white beaches and washing down Modelos in Playa Del Carmen and Cancun. A quick break in a luxurious resort on the Riviera Maya (if I could get a good deal). Checking out some Mayan ruins in Tulum and finishing my trip in the notoriously dangerous Mexico City (just bec[...]

Saudi Arabia- Is this the world’s newest, most controversial travel destination?

•••
“Cover your hair sister, you’re in Saudi Arabia now.” Something I became all too used to hearing on the streets of 2012 Riyadh. Only 6 years ago. But under the rule of the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and the implementation of ‘Vision 2030’, just maybe, Saudi Arabia is in with a legitimate chance of becoming a tourist destination. Probably quite the c[...]

The Travelettes Guide to experiencing Christmas in South Tyrol

•••
I've been to South Tyrol quite a few times and it's one of those places that just never disappoints. Maybe it's because it's in Italy, which to me is one of those countries I just can't help but love. The food, the people, the culture - there just is nothing I don't like about it. Take all those things about Italy and add a humble mountain range (the Alps) t[...]

Is El Raval Barcelona's coolest neighborhood?

•••
I was only 19 when I first went to Barcelona. And I didn't come as tourist. I arrived with just one suitcase and €270 cash in my pocket, ready to pay for my room in an apartment I would share with 4 other people from 4 different nations. That room was in a part of Barcelona called El Raval, making up one side of the infamous La Rambla, the Barrio Gotico's ug[...]

My best tips for flying - 20 years in economy class

•••
I always laugh at posts titled 'How to make economy class as comfortable as business' or such. We all know there is just no way to turn an economy flight into a business class experience regardless of how much nice lotion you use during a flight. But even I will admit that after almost 20 years of flying long distance - yes, I am that old! - I have learne[...]
