10 products you need for your summer trip

•••
As seasoned travelettes, our days of overpacking are pretty much numbered; we are far too professional these days to bring tons and tons of useless stuff on a trip. Instead, we've trained ourselves to focus on what truly matters - and I can assure you that clothing is not among those things (besides, it's usually way more fun to shop for clothes in the trave[...]

5 (more) Summery Things to do in Berlin

•••
Katja does.  And I do too. I have this thing for summer. Big time. I fall for the smell of warm asphalt and embrace every sweat bead running down my neck. My favourite shoes are bare feet and my level of happiness correlates with the number of freckles in my face. German summers tend to be an emotional rollercoaster weather-wise, so whenever 30 degrees hit t[...]

10 Ways to do Summer right

•••
Today I want to talk about the weather. Not something I usually do unless I'm getting sucked into awkward small talk or I'm cold. Which, truth to be told, I am about 97% of the time since I moved from Cape Town to Hamburg. Exceptions are when I am at Bikram yoga or wearing my wetsuit. But today I want to talk about a different kind of weather as we have a he[...]

The Travelettes Summer – The Swimsuit Issue

•••
Summer is on its way and while that brings along long breezy evenings, unlimited ice cream cones, and a smaller electricity bill, it also means the somewhat dreaded bikini season is almost upon us. That is of course if you live in the northern hemisphere. Mind you, you girls in the south seem to live in bikinis all year round so you should be used to it! For[...]

6 Things To Do in Santorini On a Budget

The island of Santorini is popular among billionaires and celebrities, so it's no wonder that backpackers and budget travellers often choose to leave it out of their itineraries. But this fear is completely unfounded - the island may cater to a wealthy clientèle, but it also has plenty of hostels, affordable food and amazing pastimes for penniless travellers[...]

UK Festivals: More than just the music

•••
The iconic Glastonbury festival kicked off on the weekend and all who couldn’t (or forgot!) to get a ticket wept in their bed and cursed all the happy festival-goers. I for one gave the finger to all the happy instagram shots and tweets about the festivities... #IdontCareButAmLying... But don’t despair as Glastonbury is merely kicking off the UK’s awesome fe[...]

Top 6 things to do in Berlin during summer

•••
Berlin in summer is Berlin at its best. It's one of those cities where locals will avoid venturing far because they know that few other cities will provide the same amount of open air entertainment. With over 100 lakes, many of which are suitable for swimming, there is no need to board planes and trains to the ocean, all it takes is a €2,60 S-bahn ticket or [...]

Berlin and those endless summer nights...

Living in Berlin you are spoiled for choice with interesting things to see and do all the time. Great new bars and restaurants open up on a weekly basis, there is always a party to attend, an exhibition to watch, a part of town still to discover. In the almost 5 years I've lived in this awesome city I have almost made a bit of a hobby out of uncovering the l[...]

100 things that you should pack for a summer roadtrip

•••
"Damn it, I forgot my sunglasses " "And I left my pillow" "Do you really think we can manage 6 weeks without a camping cooker?" "Maybe we should have bought one?" "Maybe we should have." Last summer a friend and I felt spontaneous and decided to hit the road on a whim. That's so fun and romantic isn't it? Yes. It's also the best way to forget about a [...]
