Witnessing the Display of Fall Colors in Scotland

•••
Fall is one of my favourite times to travel around Scotland. The offseason is the perfect time for a road trip - not only are there fewer tourists on the road and everything becomes more affordable, but the landscape also presents itself from its best side! Two of the best regions in Scotland to witness the fiery display of fall colours are Perthshire and th[...]

How to visit 12 Scottish islands in 2 weeks

•••
Earlier this year, I counted how many Scottish Islands I had visited since I moved here in 2013. I don't usually count countries, but I thought - to heck with it - and did it anyway. With 790 islands, some inhabited, but many just pure wilderness - there is no way to ever "see them all", and so the counting became about something different than just ticking [...]

Meet the Travelettes: A life and travel update

•••
When your team is scattered all over the planet like the Travelettes are, it's sometimes a little hard to keep each other in the loop about current projects and life in general. So when I recently started messaging the girls for a life update, I thought why not let you guys take part in it, too. The seven of us are always on the run as you'll see, but I was [...]

Island Hopping around Scotland

•••
Most people, when they think about island life, see images of tropical islands somewhere in the Pacific or Indian ocean; palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze; sipping on rum cocktails while people/wildlife watching on the beach; digging their toes into the warm sand. But when I think of island life, I envision something slightly different - the serene bea[...]

30 Awesome things to do in Edinburgh

•••
I'm not surprised that Edinburgh is the second most popular city in the UK for international visitors. London of course is leading the list, but Edinburgh sees about 13 million tourist every year! People come to see the medieval maze of courtyards, lanes and close, or the towering castle up on the hill; they come for the festivals during summer or a very spe[...]

25 Reasons for a Wintery Road Trip in Scotland

•••
  I will admit that there may or may not have been a guy involved when I started to plan a mini road trip in Scotland in the midst of November. Men in kilts with sexy accents - surely that's a good enough reason?! But even if you can't find yourself your very own Highlander there are lots of great reasons to go to Scotland right now. 1. Outlan[...]

10 Female Instagrammers that make you want to go to Scotland

•••
Finding reasons to go to Scotland is not hard at all. Be it for the natural beauty of the Western Isles, a monster hunt in the Highlands, the almost-tropical beaches of the Outer Hebrides, the medieval Old Town of Edinburgh or the thriving art and design scenes of Glasgow or Dundee - Scotland is definitely worth a top spot on your bucket list. Whenever I'm s[...]

5 Days in Great Britain with Safestay Hostels

•••
It's not easy to plan the perfect itinerary through Great Britain, and it is even harder if you only have five days to spare. You want to see the island's great towns, the bustling capital of London, learn a bit about the history but also delve into the gorgeous countryside. How is is all going to fit? Long story short, it doesn't of course - there is way[...]

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[...]

Gone Sea Kayaking: A Weekend in Oban

•••
It is not often that we get an exceptionally sunny and warm Spring weekend in Scotland, but when it happens I am the first to get long for adventure. Not too long ago it was such a weekend, so my boyfriend and I rented a car and drove north. We had our minds set on a little Scottish coastal town not too far from Glasgow but special enough to get away from it[...]
