The Travelettes' 10 best tips for a fitter holiday

•••
When we travel, there is always an occasion for a drink and sometimes unhealthy delicious food. We're on holiday after all, and need to try the country's specialties! Trying the local food at hand and praising it to the locals is a great way to make new friends and getting to know the culture a bit better.  This is not a problem if you're gone for a shorter [...]

Wakeboarding in Malaysia

•••
I'll be honest, I didn’t even know what wakeboarding was when my friend first told me she was hooked on it. When we skyped a year or so ago, she on the balcony of her apartment in Kuala Lumpur (KL), and me freezing next to the radiator in my small London flat’s kitchen, she enthused about her new love for "wakey." I nodded and lied convincingly, “I’d lov[...]

Volcano Boarding: Extreme and Dusty

•••
We all know the excitement of the usual surfing, wakeboarding, tobogganing, dune surfing, sledging… you name it! Anything with a board on sand or water is guaranteed to look great and feel so fun! But have you heard of doing it on ash down the side of a live volcano? A volcano in Nicaragua in Central America called Cerro Negro? The world’s most active cinder[...]

Falling from the Sky in Taupo, New Zealand

•••
Before I traveled New Zealand, I was so very sure that I would never do anything as ridiculous as a bungee jump... or a sky dive! I scoffed at the idea with thoughts of, "Why would I spend so much on something that could probably kill me?!" Little did I realise that New Zealands' extreme-sporting-adrenaline-junkie nature would buckle my views and soon have m[...]

Experience the Super Bowl & win a weekend in Munich

•••
What do you think is the biggest and most-watched sports event in the world? You have Olympics of course. And then there is the undeniable World Cup.  But another massive sporting event to excite the masses is the Super Bowl! The Super Bowl is the finale of the US American Football profi league referred to as NFL. Every year it draws millions of Americans in[...]

Oetz Valley, Austria - Vertigo is the way to go

•••
In my mind, Austria was all about Heidi, Yodeling and hot ski instructors. That being said, I had never been to Austria before  last month, when the Travelettes headed down to charming Innsbruck to attend the Travel Bloggers United conference, followed by a blog trip to Ötztal Valley in Tyrol.  After the chilled town of Innsbruck, we were all pretty stoked a[...]

5 active summer holidays

•••
  Laying in the sun on a beautiful beach, hour after hour? What might sound like paradise to some people, to me is torture. Give me a surfboard, a pair of running shoes, a yoga mat and a bike and I will have the time of my life. This is why I never went on a classical package holiday, and I would probably bore my ass off, if I ever went. The advantag[...]

Introducing the GoPro camera

•••
I am normally not really interested in any high-tech stuff, but when some of my friends got the GoPro camera, I was very impressed and decided to start saving for one as well. Whether you go skiing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, surfing, biking, kayaking or diving, this camera is amazing, as it can be attached to your sports gear, it's robust and waterproof. T[...]

Cycling holidays in Europe

•••
Have you ever been on a vacation that seemed ruined before you'd even had the chance to reach your destination? Hours of waiting at airports due to flight cancellations, precious time wasted waiting at train stations or caught up in traffic jams in the middle of the highway? I've certainly had my share of transportation nightmares, and although the rest o[...]

On Running (without heels)

•••
It's cheap, it's exotic and it's so so so good. When traveling you often find yourself surrounded by culinary goodness every step of the way. And because you're open and worldly you know that you cannot just order a salad when the restaurant you're in has just won a price for its outstanding curry or chocolate dessert. When you're on the road mirrors are [...]
