Most girls I know have a certain special item of clothing they can’t bear to travel without. A go to dress; some comfy shorts; that perfectly battered pair of trusty Converse that are just about to fall apart… Well, for Jennifer Salvage that item happens to be a little bit more unusual. You see, Jennifer travels with her wedding dress.
It all started on March 19th 2008, when Jennifer and Jeff said …

Do you remember my little moan about new beginnings last week? Well, that has turned into wanting to cancel my return flight and just stay. I’ve discovered the Lebanese mountains which you may have spotted on Instagram, took part in a few trips with an ecotourism club (mine was called Vamos Todos but there’s a huge variety in Lebanon, they all offer different trips each weekend) and met some awesome …

Blue skies, bright colours, dreamy beaches, fresh treats, and also lightning storms, quiet times indoors, even snow from the Southern hemisphere! This is what we’ve been finding on the #dailytravelette feed throughout the first half of the Travelettes Instagram Challenge – July 2014 edition.
It’s always fun to find out how you guys interpret the themes we imagined for every day of the challenge: some of you love to take them literally, …

Wouldn’t it be great if mermaids really did exist? One of my favourite films growing up was Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ and the idea of floating around in a fantastical, underwater kingdom and basking on exotic shores has probably contributed to my usual choice of travel destination. Keep your mountains and deserts – take me to the coast! Plus they had some pretty serious tropical tune-age going on down there …

My three favourite things in life are probably Canada, cameras and boys (yehep, right in that order). After a road trip through the country of maple syrup, weed and flawless natural beauty last summer, I decided to move to Vancouver some time soon. But before all of that is going to happen, I’m keen on maintaining a steady flow of inspiration usually in the shape of a colourful Instagram feed …

It’s here! For those of us in the Northern hemisphere, summer is officially here. Along with the new season come promises of hot days, chilled drinks, pool fights, nature adventures, spontaneous road-trips, shoes-and-pants-optional, enjoying the last bits of light with friends around endless barbecues… and travel! travel! travel!

The days ahead are some of the longest of the year, and there’s plenty of light to be captured. The summer Instagram Challenge was …

I’ve been following @nicnorgacia for nearly two years and every time I see a photo of his on Instagram I think, I must share his amazing photos with the Travelettes readers.
So finally that’s what I’m doing.
Hey, you can’t say I’m not diligent at keeping my promises. I’m just not very prompt at doing so.
Here are five reasons why I love Mr Nicanor García’s photos.
1.  Lines, lines, lines! They always match up. …

Anyone who’s dabbled in a spot of South East Asian travel will surely agree that one of the best ways to get from A to B is by motorbike. Getting around on two wheels is speedy, cheap and convenient – motorbikes have the ability to navigate the often narrow or densely populated streets of big Asian cities, slipping through tiny backstreets with ease and giving some of the worst traffic the …

They say that love happens when you least expect it.
Well, I have to say I agree. I didn’t expect to fall in love when I visited Český Krumlov, at least not with a museum. Heck, I didn’t even expect to visit a museum during my brief time in the famously historic Bohemian town, but when the words “one of the oldest working photography studios in the world” were mentioned, the …

A striking young woman, draped in a wide shawl, majestically walks up a street corner in Florence. Fifteen Italian men are looking at her, captivated (some manifesting their interest in a more subtle manner than others). This is American Girl in Italy by Ruth Orkin, and it is one of the most famous street photographs of the 20th century.
