How Living Out of a Backpack Changed My Life

•••
It all started with a battered 35l backpack. Lugged through muddy fields at festivals, dumped in damp tents and stuffed to the brim with secret stashes of alcohol, my cheap £30 pack had been pushed to its limits for years. Before my first long-term adventure, I had deliberated about whether to ditch it and upgrade. However the sentimental memories associ[...]

Everest Base Camp Trek- The Ultimate Packing Guide

•••
Trust me when I say that when you’re at an elevation of 5335 metres, having trekked about 65 kms, with another 65 kms to get back down, you 100% want to be travelling as light as possible. Every last ounce feels 100 times heavier when your oxygen levels are at 75% and you can barely string two sentences together. So, to start with, plan to pack all the ne[...]

12 Travel Wardrobe Essentials: Keep Warm, Look Cool

•••
As a traveller, you're bound to pick up the odd bits and bobs from each country that you pass through. We always say 'this time I won't buy anything'... But let's face it, that never really sticks! When asked where you got your outfit from, it's pretty fun to go through each piece and name the city or country where you sourced it. So your wardrobe might b[...]

10 travel essentials which you always forget to pack...

•••
I'm sure you know it all; that terrible feeling when you sit at the airport gate, suddenly a flash of stinging pain shoots through your brain and you realise, you left your hair brush next to your bed. Or your toothpaste in the bathroom. Or your phone charger attached to the plug behind your bed... Argh - again! Over the years I have developed some exit stra[...]

The Travelettes came together and discussed our best tips for looking good on the road, but packing light, avoiding those lame checked baggage fees. Here ar[...]

The Travelettes Guide to City Tripping

•••
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 [...]

Travel Essentials for a trip to the Middle East

•••
While American drones raining down on Pakistan and Yemen (bet you never read that intro in a travel piece) may disqualify them from being the ideal places for a female solo traveler, a large part of the Middle East is very much suitable for exploring and getting inspired. My no. 1 girl crush Sophia Bush recently made a trip through the Middle East and her li[...]

Knowing what technology to take on an overseas trip can sometimes be a bit of a confusing and intimidating affair. You may be someone who wants to take a break from the hum of the digital world on your trip so aren't concerned about keeping in touch with emails and Instagram, but if you're keen on staying plugged in whilst tripping around the world, sometime[...]

100 things that you should pack for a summer roadtrip

•••
"Damn it, I forgot my sunglasses " "And I left my pillow" "Do you really think we can manage 6 weeks without a camping cooker?" "Maybe we should have bought one?" "Maybe we should have." Last summer a friend and I felt spontaneous and decided to hit the road on a whim. That's so fun and romantic isn't it? Yes. It's also the best way to forget about a [...]

Me and my Kindle

•••
I'm a self confessed book geek and on a good day by the pool I can read 2 or 3 books in a go. Not only does this become an expensive habit to keep me amused when topping up my tan, it also means I sometimes have to sacrifice packing a dress or two in order to make room for my holiday library. That's why I'm very happy to have my Kindle accompanying me this s[...]
