Introvert Travel Tools

•••
As an introvert I’m notoriously known for staying at home, not showing up for parties and passing the brunch invitation. Don’t get me wrong, I’m neither shy nor a very antisocial person. I just need a fairly high amount of quiet time to process the impressions I've had in a day. So after being out and about in the city, going on a tour, visiting a museum and[...]

How to successfully settle in a new city

•••
"Let’s quit our jobs and set up a commune in South America!” exclaims one of my friends at a Sunday lunch in Bethnal Green in London. Over roast beef and red wine, someone raised the idea of a whole group of us leaving our settled lives and jobs in London to live together in a paradise elsewhere.

4 Strategies to Change the Way you Travel Forever

•••
I found myself wishing, praying, someone would tell me what the next step was. There were a million different jobs I could apply for, a million different cities to live in, a million different paths to choose. But instead, I chose none.  I was stuck, scared to fail, scared to choose the wrong path.

12 New Year's Resolutions for Travellers

•••
I have a confession to make - I'm terrible at sticking to new year's resolutions. Every year, I start out with only the best intentions - to learn a language, to work out more, to spend less time on social media and my computer, to watch more films by and about women... but eventually I give in. Routine and laziness win me over, and all the determination I f[...]

Travel for the Journey, Not the Pictures

•••
I've been observing this phenomenon for a while now. More and more people seem to travel to get to the same places that others have seen before, in order to take the very same pictures and recreate their experiences. They try to plan all the details of their trips. They ask for restaurants, hotels, perfect photo spots etc. – everything should be highly recom[...]

101 little Habits that make you a Better Traveler

•••
When it comes to travel, there is of course no right and wrong. Everybody has their own way of experiencing the world. They set their own pace and are interested in a variety of different things.
