50 Reasons Why It Might Be Time To Go Home

•••
I love to travel, so please don’t let the title of this post make you think otherwise! But if you’re a traveller who tends to take fatty chunks of time off to live the life of a backpacking nomad, you’ll understand that sometimes it can get to the point where you can feel, in your gut, that it is just time to go home. And hey, that’s ok! I remember after 8 m[...]

The Piano Man of New York City

•••
Most of us are – hopefully – happy or at least content with the way their lives go; chasing their dreams with more or less commitment. But what do you do if you feel like this just isn't the way you've planned it, that there is something more to the monotonous everyday routine? Let me introduce you to the "world's happiest man", whose ambitions now made him [...]

77 signs that you're a traveller for life...

•••
Last weekend I travelled back to the UK from the Netherlands for a family gathering and being the nonchalant travel professional that I am, I was running (very, very) late. As I walked (ahem, raced) through Schiphol's main entrance I realised I had only eleven minutes to make it to my gate before it closed, including the dreaded walk through security. I got [...]

Let me tell you about a guy from New York City. He is a singer/songwriter and self-proclaimed hopeless romantic – a species of which there are quite few among the city's 8 million souls.

6 Top Things to do on Koh Tao, Thailand

•••
The Urban Dictionary defines the term ‘Paradise’ as a version of heaven minus the clouds, harps, angels etc, but typically seen as an ideal place of beauty such as a massive lush garden with every known exotic plant, animal and bird. This seems to describe the little island of Koh Tao perfectly. However, take this idea of paradise and factor in a long list o[...]

Lighting up the Night Sea

•••
Have you ever heard of the fluorescent plankton that lurks out in deep waters? The kind that lights up and glitters when you move through the water? To those who haven’t it may sound like some exotic magical occurrence, and even though I had vaguely heard of it, I had never quite fathomed what it would look like. But lo and behold, on my recent trip to Thail[...]

“Abandoning Little People on the Streets since 2006” is the project's slogan, which is pretty mysterious and intriguing… but when you begin exploring this little blog, The Little People Project, the adorable art and photography that take the miniature figures around the world is captivating and you can soon lose a good couple of hours trawling through the ar[...]

The Parador: The Epitome of Jungle Luxury

•••
I spent my weekend surrounded by jungle. I saw a white faced capuchin during my morning walk. I ate lunch with an iguana beside me. I swam under a waterfall in the afternoon. I did yoga with tropical birds. I watched the sunset over the ocean as I ate dinner. The best part?  I didn't even leave my hotel. Travelettes, I have a terrible confession to make. Whe[...]
