It’s so lovely to hear from other female travelers who are inspired and motivated by Travelettes.net. Especially from girls who are undergoing their travels right now, blogging/recording/filming their adventures for the world to follow and share their laughs, tears, traumas and memories. And here is a perfect example of such a thing: MISSADVENTURES.

O.k. let me introduce the Canadian threesome (plus camera-woman extraordinaire) who make up MISSADVENTURES.ca.
We have Ellie who wants to travel with Tom …

For example, whenever I get back from a trip abroad people always tell me how much they wish they could just pack up and go on an adventure.  “Why don’t you?” I ask, and they …

Spain is probably one of the most diverse countries I know. On one hand you have the Balearic Islands with their party people AND gorgeous landscape. On the other hand you have the Canary Islands with their eternal spring and gorgeous landscapes.

However, both are completely different to one another. And then finally there is the mainland with fascinating cities like Madrid, Seville or Barcelona, with little in common with its …

We all form images in our heads about how a place is going to look; influenced by friends, family, the press, and sometimes an overactive imagination. If someone says Afghanistan, what are the first images that come to mind? For me, the images are those predominantly brought to you in times of terror and disaster featuring foreign forces, explosions and often worse.

A new short film, Afghanistan – touch down in …

Tweed Ride. Sounds quite enigmatic doesn’t it?
Well, it’s pretty much what it says on the tin: people dressed in tweed riding around on bikes. This group bicycle ride began in London where participants were to dress in traditional British cycling attire on vintage classic bicycles to embrace the spirit of the old days and the fashionable vintage era of transport!

There are girls who go to Paris for a weekend of shopping, others who spend a few days lounging by the beach in Spain. And then there are girls like Klara Harden, who wander off to Iceland to spend 25 days hiking all by herself throughout the lonely and stunning landscapes of the Icelandic highlands.

When I was young, one of the top things on my list of ‘Things to do before I die’ was to see the Northern Lights. I had heard of its beauty, seen its gorgeous colours on postcards, witnessed snapshots in documentaries but never really followed through on my aim in life, which I was so adamant about when I was twelve.

Have you heard of that show ‘Around the World for Free’? I hadn’t until a few days ago, and when I saw that it was ex-reality stars being filmed to travel, I wasn’t very impressed… until I found out the details: ’Around the World for Free‘ (ATWFF) is a reality series that challenges an individual to get all around the world with absolutely no money and one cameraman in tow who …

After an eventful and fun weekend at Rock am Ring, I was very excited to follow an invitation by Beck’s Music Experience to tag along to another festival favorite of mine – Hurricane. This time there were no hotels, no fancy buffet or cocktails – this time was pure festival goodness: beers, chips and sleeping inside a nightliner.
