On a Himalayan Adventure: The Story Of the Snow Leopard

•••
There are only 3.000 to 6.000 snow leopards estimated to be alive today - they are an endangered species. By some conservative estimates, you would be 10 times more likely to be struck by a lightning than have the absolute luck of seeing the majestic snow leopard. Serken (which is the traditional name of the snow leopard) is considered to be a symbol of God.[...]

50 Must See Places in the Western United States

•••
This summer I returned to my home country after living in the Far East and embarked on a month long road trip through the Western United States, experiencing my homeland like I never dreamed: through a Great American Road trip. Coming from the East Coast originally, I have spent many long hours experiencing the open highways of America. However, much of t[...]

10 Instagrammers that will make you want to Road Trip

•••
Summer is slowly slipping away, ladies, and if you're looking for a fun and easy way to seize the last of the sun, then look no further than a road trip. Nothing quite beats loading up your car with everything you need for a week or so, planning your journey, getting lost, camping en route and stopping off at random spots along the way. With the sun flooding[...]

8 Surprising Cities to Add to Your Cross-Country Road Trip

•••
One of the coolest parts of planning your next road trip is that you can constantly search for new and less-explored parts of the country — a bonus to living in such a vast space as the United States. There is nothing quite like getting lost in nature or among locals in some remote or unknown location. If you’ve yet to kick off your next cross-country jou[...]

10 Things I Learned From Hitchhiking

•••
Let’s get this out of the way now: Yes, I hitchhiked. Yes, alone, yes, I’m a girl, yes, I’m under 25. Actually, I was under 20 when I started. Those of you who are hitchhikers as well will think this is nothing special, boring even: of course you hitchhike. How else would you get to discover tons of places at a time in your life when your bank account is dan[...]

The Travelettes Guide to the Faroe Islands

•••
The Faroe Islands had been on my bucket list ever since I spent a semester at the University of Reykjavik and one of my friends traveled there on her way home to Europe by ferry. I was intrigued - a place so remote you have to take an overnight ferry to reach it? Enough reason for me to put it on my bucket list. Years later, I would finally get to tick the r[...]

100 Years of American National Parks

•••
To plan our road trip across the USA, we pinpointed on a map all the places we wanted to go to and linked them together, including cities, historical sites and national parks, which are very renowned in America. In the end, we managed to see seven national parks across the USA which were all very different and beautiful in their own way. To celebrate the 100[...]

The Travelettes Itinerary for Central California

•••
“I’m going to start in L.A., travel up the coast and then see where the road will take me,” my boyfriend explained to me through the microphone of his laptop. “I’ll be home in two or three weeks, babe”. Maybe there was something wrong with the Skype connection, because that blurry dude on my computer screen could not just have told me that he was going to tr[...]

10 alternative things to do in Melbourne

•••
Melbourne is always on my mind, especially when life in the UK gets a bit tough. I recall the sunshine, the happy memories, the friends and the fun alternative things to do in Melbourne that don’t exist over here on this cold island, which is getting colder by the day after this recent referendum. With the fear of Brexit instilled in my tired British hear[...]

Beaches & Castles: A Different Side to Scotland

•••
I'd like you to close your eyes and think about Scotland. What do you see? Maybe Highland cows and bagpipers, men in kilts with nothing underneath, the medieval streets of Edinburgh, a steam train on a viaduct or a narrow road winding its way through the Highland mountains? If so, you only know half the picture, because Scotland has a completely different si[...]
