Burning Man Festival? We have already published a post about the reasons why every Travelette should attend this absurd event, held annually in the Black Rock Desert (Nevada), at least once in her life. Once did not cut it for me though, and after completing my third burn (which still makes me a baby Burner, as many people have been coming for fifteen years or more!), I have no intention to stop — …

I love the Netherlands. I love jazz music. And I love festivals, though preferably the mud-free kind.

Being on perpetual holidays, barefoot and sun-kissed… Impossible? Not quite: there is a handful of people on this planet who seem to actually live this dream life, hopping from one sublime off-the-grid escape to another, on a permanent quest for the endless summer. Who are they? Members of what New York-based journalist Julia Chaplin calls the Gypset (a cross between”gypsy” and “jet-set”), i.e. a crowd of semi-nomadic party enthusiasts who …

Friendships and meetings are fleeting on the road. There is generally simply not enough time to fully know someone in the short window before one of you heads off to your next destination; and so inadvertently intuition and stereotypes are utilized to dissect a new acquaintance.
