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 [...]

Travelettes at North Sea Jazz Festival

•••
I love the Netherlands. I love jazz music. And I love festivals, though preferably the mud-free kind. I did something about all of the above by attending the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam last month. With the likes of Sting, Bobby Womack, The Roots and Dionne Warwick topping the bill, I had high expectations from the three day festival that takes p[...]

Sailing to Continental Europe in Style

•••
There's an episode of Sex and the City in which Carrie and Samantha decide to cross the USA by train for Carrie's book signing in San Francisco. Before they leave they discuss at length how glamorous it will be, how indulgent and vintage inspired. They may even squeal a bit, I can't remember. They arrive at Central Station in smart travel outfits, weighed [...]

•••
Have you ever heard of Meshu? If you love travel, jewellery and unique momentos then it’s about time you did. Returning from travels is bound to leave you feeling a bit blue.

How to make authentic tasty Vietnamese Pho

•••
Pho is a traditional Vietnamese dish that can be found all over Vietnam. Super cheap, authentic, fresh, healthy, everything you could ever want while backpacking! Coming from Melbourne and its fantastically diverse cuisine, I had tried the traditional noodle soup dish in the Vietnamese suburb of Richmond. I thought it was pretty good… but going to Vietnam an[...]

Sand-tastic! The Sand Sculpture Festival in Brighton

•••
As one of the few Travelettes that is permanently travelling (aka homeless with a suitcase) and the girl who wrote this post about being a world travelling digital nomad, it was somewhat of a shock to end up back in Britain for a few months for a few different reasons (not least, I'm an Auntie for the first time, yay!). It's even stranger that my current[...]

Cosas Mágicas: A Guide to Tepoztlán, Mexico

•••
What makes a destination truly magical? It is a combination of many things: natural beauty, culture, history, climate, locals, and that feeling that you just can’t put a name on. Tepoztlán, a small town south of Mexico City, is all of these things and more. The Mexican government recognized this and, rightfully so, bestowed  upon Tepoztlán  the title of “Pue[...]

The Ruins of Xochicalco, Mexico

•••
"Xochicalco" can be translated from the ancient language of Nahuatl to mean "In the House of Flowers," and I am so happy I was able to visit it at the end of the rainy season, when flowers were blooming, and the grass was green. There is something very magical about ancient ruins, and that magic is only heightened when they are slightly overrun by the elemen[...]

10 fun travel accessories for a Travelette

•••
For some, traveling is as simple as throwing a t-shirt and a tooth brush into a backpack and locking the door behind them. For others, months of meticulous planning takes place locating and purchasing the perfect bikini, travel bag and accessories for their trip. If you fall into the second category you might (like me) also be a serious hoarder of utterly us[...]
