The Travelettes Guide to Traveling Like a Travelette

Written by 19 April 2012 46 Comments

A while ago, when we told you about how to keep your memories in books with Blurb, I told you that we were in the process of creating a little book for ourselves. Now I’m happy to announce that it is completed and online! With “The Travelettes Diary”we collected a short guide on how to travel like a Travelette.

Apart from our favourite photos, it contains a mixture of travelicious tips and instructions, fun pages with illustrations and travel quotes and pages to fill in yourself.

From our favourite travel music over instructions on how to talk Germanlish to things to do with High Heels apart from walking in them the Travelettes Diary is not only our diary, it can be yours as well. Color a world map with places you have been or want to go, make a list of things you ate on the road, interview a local or simply draw everything that has been in one day of your holiday.

The book is now available on Blurb to order as a softcover copy or iBook for your iPad or iPhone here.

Also, we give away 3 of these books to you! Simply like us on Facebook and leave a comment underneath this post, stating why you would like one. Winners will be announced on May 1st.

Winners of a copy of the travelettes guide are Nora, Elodie and Ann_e, who’ve been notified via email.

This post was written by Nina Hüpen-Bestendonk, who has a funny name even for Germans; she is a wicked go-getter and creative freelance designer, photographer and blogger.

She has an eye for beauty and even finds it in ugly apartment blogs. Her weekly photo chronicle “My week in pictures” has already become a classic among urban Berliners. Find out more at smaracuja.de.

    Dear Travelettes,

    I would love to have a copy of this wonderful book to gift it to my best friend and favourite fellow-travelette, who is on the other side of the world right now, to show her how much I enjoy travelling with her, how much I miss her, and how excited I am about our trip to Israel together this summer!

  • Kirsty said:

    Dear Travelettes, this divine little book would be the perfect companion to ensure l travel in style when I cross the seas to adventure in Europe in July! Plus, the mouth-watering photography and design should serve as perfect inspiration to keep me going until I can jet off. :) xox

    I also will start writing on it right on my way to the airport and will have a looot of time to write and colour it! It will start with my 26hours trip with stops in madrid and panama and bogota to finally arrive in Cali, Colombia =)!

  • ann_e said:

    Craving for more travel experience like forever and eventually going on a 1 year RTW-trip in August I still found myself hopelessly lost searching the internet for packing and essential advice on what not to miss on a huge adventure like this.
    I finally found this the place to find all the answers plus the most inspirational female travellers!
    I’ll make sure to leave some itsy-bitsy space for your book in my backpack – it’s a must-have.

  • Lüdi said:

  • Michelle said:

    It would be wonderful to have this unique book to take with me on my travels! I try to travel long-term once a year and as soon as school is done, it will be even longer term! I am always looking for inspiring new ways to document my travels instead of the plain old photo albums and pictures scattered about my bedroom. Plus, what better than to get this inspiration from my online travel inspirations :)

    xoxo, Kati

    Hy :)
    I read you facebook page very often and i must say i really really like it :)
    This diary looks great, and why should i win it, well because i am young, and in love with travelling. Every book i seem to read about travelling to somewhere wasn’t actually nekther fun or inspirin. i really do want to travel the whole world and i need something to inspire me, something that will help me how to travel and really have a lot of fun along the way and to do crazy stuff too :)
    So i think this diary with all the fotos and everything is the right thing for young people who enjoy travelling and having a lot of fun :))

  • Elodie said:

    Aww! What a lovely book! I would love to owe it because I will be travelling to Norway and to Finland this summer, all alone as a big girl and it would be a lovely companion to write down my stories. I have waited for 15 years to make this trip a reality. So it would be great to have this book to show and share with my loved ones memories from my trip this summer. And I have to confess I would love to colour it with my Tinkerbell pencils. Yes, I’m lady in heels outside and a kid inside! :)

  • Steffi said:

    I need this book! I need it, so I can give it to my wonderful heelwearing, globetrotting and adventurous friend sarah, who will be happy as shit! please help me make her happy <3
