Top 10 Things to do in Bali

•••
Welcome to Bali - island of Gods, mecca for surfers, yogis and lovers of Eat, Pray, Love! Despite a rapid tourism development which as everywhere is not always a good thing, it is hard not to be at least charmed by Bali. Green picturesque rice paddies meet some of the best waves around, friendly locals, the smell of incense and frangipani in the air, an[...]

10 Perfect Places to Chill Out and Relax in Asia

•••
For those of us who have been backpacking in Asia, you'll know that eventually things can get a little exhausting, and so finding the perfect chill out zone is exactly what you need. I'm talking about a place where days get lost in each other, you forget what time it is, waking up with the sun and going to sleep on hammocks by the river every night. I'm talk[...]

Travelettes Do Yoga - 5 Unique Yoga Retreats

•••
Yoga is one of my favorite activities and I think an excellent way to stay fit while traveling. The world is your oyster and any beach towel, sarong or hostel floor can become your mat. Yoga can be challenging, calming and everything you need it to be in between. In this day and age studios have popped up everywhere from urban metropolises to remote little i[...]

How to Spend a Month in South India

•••
Following on from my How to Spend a Month in Northern India, I wanted to do a similar post celebrating the South of the country. North and South India are tremendously different in so many ways, from the landscapes to the climate, the people and the food. If you've only ever travelled to North India before, you might be in for a shock when you head to the So[...]

•••
I don’t know about you but personally, I find staying fit on the road quite difficult. I want to eat all the local food and find all the excuses not to work out. As I am at a point of my life though when travel is taking up a big part this doesn't really fly anymore. So I made a resolution to include more fun activities to stay fit whenever I travel.

The Travelettes Guide to Rishikesh & Haridwar

•••
To be completely honest, it was probably a bad idea to book that tour to Rishikesh and Haridwar at the cusp of monsoon season in the middle of July. During monsoon the mighty Ganges river can broaden and rise several meters with destructive force; many roads get closed for days or weeks after fatal landslides; heavy rain clouds linger low between the hills c[...]

How yoga makes you a better traveler

•••
via Travelling is among the most stressful things that I make myself go through - by choice, of course. I started writing this blogpost in Tel Aviv at the airport. My flight was delayed and I already knew that I had to spend the night in Brussels, before I would get another connection flight to Glasgow via London. And if that wasn't already enough on my poo[...]

Unwind in Berlin: A weekend retreat at Storchenhof

•••
It doesn't have to take hours on end to travel to a place that catapults you into a parallel universe. In fact, sometimes the most serene of all oases can be a short train ride away. And sometimes, just sometimes, it takes a mere 48 hours to calm down the buzz in your head. When I stepped into the old farm-house of a stork farm in Groß Pankow, Brandenburg ([...]
