10 Things I Hate (and LOVE) about Travelling with You

•••
Valentine's Day will always be received with a mixed reception, depending so much on your "Relationship Status", a term I hate in itself. When I was single, I sort of half-loathed, half-loved it because despite all indications to the contrary I would hope against hope that come 14th February I would get a mystery Valentine through my post box. I did once.[...]

The other side of Koh Pha-Ngan

•••
Think Thailand's Koh Pha-Ngan is all about neon paint splattered gap year students throwing some shapes under the full moon and spacing out on shroom mountain? Well, hold your horses cowgirls, there's more to this infamous Thai island than super-strength buckets and passing out on the sand at 6am. I love Koh Pha-Ngan long time. I've loved it since way back w[...]

Perhentian Kecil - Notes from a small island

•••
We travelettes love a good island. Who doesn’t? That tropical mix of powder-soft sand, turquoise water and never-ending, glorious sunsets washed down with a cooling beverage is surely guaranteed to sound the alarm on even the most insensitive of bliss-ometers. But traveling around South East Asia can require a little bit of extra thought in order to avoid th[...]

The Top Melbourne & Sydney Breakfast Spots

•••
I'm not going to lie, I am a breakfast addict. I love it. It gets me out of bed in the morning and adds the sunshine into my morning even if I wake up to the traditional UK weather. Being a newly returning Brit from Australia, not only is the rainy and cold weather getting me down, but so is the cafe culture. The cafes and breakfast spots in Australia blew m[...]

2 Years as a Digital Nomad: (More) Lessons Learned

•••
A year ago I wrote this article about the lessons I've learned in the first twelve months of being a "digital nomad". It's become one of our most popular articles on Travelettes, it served as the basis for a number of talks I've given on the subject and it was recently featured in an article in Germany's national newspaper Der Spiegel (here in German[...]

Hotels We Love: Palácio do Freixo in Porto

•••
"When I grow up, I'm going to be a princess and live in a big palace..." a little girl once said to a curious enquirer. Twenty-five years later, in November 2013, that little girl had grown up and her wish was granted in Porto, Portugal, of all places. At least it was granted for three nights. But those three nights were enough thanks to the luxury[...]

21 Reasons to Love Rotterdam

•••
I've come to learn from my time living  in Amsterdam that there are a few unwritten rules you must follow: 1. Speak English better than any native speaker. 2. Run over at least three tourists a year on your bike. 3. Hate Rotterdam. Well, unfortunately these are three rules I'm almost instantly going to fail at (apart from maybe no. 2, I'm on [...]

12 things you must do before summer's over

•••
With autumn looming in the distance and limited time left of the summer’s sun, the great outdoors needs to be fully seized and enjoyed before it is too late! Road trips, camping trips, hikes, bike rides; all these things must be done before the miserable winter sets in and you regret your missed sunny opportunities. Don’t let that happen and don’t resign you[...]

29 signs you've been traveling South East Asia

•••
South East Asia, it's a funny old place. Exciting, addictive and beautiful - not unlike travel itself. There's no question that part of Asia's appeal is the fact it is poles apart from our Western world, a place where you can very quickly find yourself lost in a totally different lifestyle and way of thinking. Well, we travelettes are nothing if not adaptabl[...]
