Travelette of the Month: Ruthie Lindsey

•••
Do you know why I love our globalized world so much? Because it shows me the diversity, courage and boldness of people that I’d never come across otherwise and who inspire me to be as much me as I can be. Ruthie Lindsey is one of them. Her story is remarkable and has touched me on numerous accounts in very different phases of my life, even though I’ve never [...]

7 Signs To Show That You Are Born to Travel

•••
There are some people who are willing to try everything once at least in life. Whether it’s food, a new adventurous activity, or something totally random, they always have an open mind and a passion for new experiences. But that's not the case for everyone. There are some people who enjoy the stability of a subtle life - in their 9 to 5 job and with family, [...]

You are allowed to choose Travel

•••
"So, where are you off to this weekend?" By now, I'm used to people asking me where I am traveling to next. The ones closest to me don't even ask anymore whether I'll be home when I'm off work. They know the backpack is waiting for me next to my door, and a travel plan has already been made weeks, maybe months in advance. They know me and are used to this[...]

I'm a bit older (and maybe wiser) now and I'm still not very good at surfing (yet), but California has [...]

Drawing on experience: inspiration for your travel journal

•••
I always try and keep a travel journal when I go on a big trip or spend time in a new place. It can be joyous to go back and read what my 17-year-old self felt about being hit by a blanket of heat when arriving in Delhi. Or about how in my first week in Moscow I sat next to a Cossack on a Metro train who was wearing about 20 medals and smiling cheekily. Or a[...]

10 wonderful things to do in Buenos Aires

•••
Colourful. Gritty. Impassioned. Glamorous. Relaxed. For me, those five words sum up Buenos Aires. It’s impossible not to love this city and all of its contradictions. Every barrio (neighbourhood) of this sprawling and eclectic metropolis has its own character and list of “must-see” attractions. From hipster Palermo with its new designers, cafes and pa[...]

How Tel Aviv mended my travel-weary heart

•••
It all started at Munich airport last December. I had just come back from the fourth long-haul flight in two weeks with a serious flu and none of meds I’d been throwing in worked. My body was dead tired, I was awake for 24 hours. It was getting late and then my flight to Berlin was canceled and I was supposed to be at a really important video shoot early the[...]
