How to Travel Around a Full-Time Job

•••
When I tell people that I'm a travel blogger, I usually get confused looks when I go on to say that my full-time job isn't travel blogging. I get the looks coupled with questions, such as, "How do you manage to travel around a full-time job?", "If you have a 9 - 5  job, how do you ever go on any adventures?" and "How can you have the time to travel?". And al[...]

The 5 Best Coffee Shops in San Francisco

•••
Before every trip I take, the first thing I do is sit down at my computer and try to find the best coffee shops at my next destination. I scour the web, looking through countless blogs and pins on Pinterest to make a list of cafés in each neighborhood that I plan to visit. Now, on every trip I take when I need a break from the hustle and bustle of [...]

25 Simple Ways to Save Money for Travel

•••
What is any traveller's worst enemy? Unsurprisingly, it is of course their bank account. How often have I heard that the reason for not travelling is that it is too expensive and there is simply no money for that flight to [insert dream destination]. I often get asked how I can afford to travel so much, and while there are certain perks as a travel blogger t[...]

Work and Travel: A Winter Season in Whistler

•••
After working in an office for 5 years and basically leading a relationship with my computer, I decided to take the leap: leave everything for the unknown and actually live life instead of letting it go by. It was always my dream to travel but to transform this dream into a plan took some time and organising - so worth it! Completely in love with skiing, [...]

The 8 Best Coffee Houses in NYC

•••
I don’t have an office, rather I have a coffee shop where my "co-workers" are writers and artists who set up their laptops and fuel their craft with cappuccinos and French pastries. Instead of oppressive silence or the symphony of fellow employees typing away on outdated keyboards, I have light jazz mixing with the sweet smell of coffee and the day’s bakery [...]

Travel for free with Workaway

•••
After turning 30 last year, I decided it was time to leave the sunny beaches of Australia behind and give my 2-year working visa for the UK a whirl before it was too late (it's no longer valid once you turn 31). I'm not one to dilly-dally on a decision for long, so after about 6 weeks, my flight was booked, my bags were packed and I'd sold everything I owned[...]

The Challenges of Volunteering in Cambodia

•••
You have probably heard and read it a million times: volunteering abroad (be it short or long-term) is an ultimately rewarding, once-in-a-lifetime experience. It sounds like a cliché, right? There is the truth to it though, and I'm happy to repeat it for the million+1st time - volunteering really is amazing. When planning our travels we often get absorbed[...]

The Wild Wild West in Canada

•••
“Easy girls”, I hear Tim's voice from the front. He doesn't mean me, of course, but the two mule mares drawing the coach I am on. Earlier that day a two-hour truck drive brought me from Banff to the Bighorn camp-ground on the edge of Banff National Park, Alberta. I was about to gather my first WWOOFing experience, leaving behind electricity, running water, p[...]
