See the Amalfi Coast: A Short Story

Anybody who doesn't believe travel changes you - mostly and hopefully for the better - is probably reading the wrong website. I know that travel changes you. I think you do too. Here's one interesting way that travel changed me. Back in 1999, a family holiday to Naples, Italy, when I was an often moody, always day-dreaming seventeen year old changed th[...]

Win a photo book with Travelettes and Kodak

Are you usually last minute about Christmas gifts like I am? Do you also always make a new plan each year to be better about it in the future? Good thing that this year was the grand exception as I was invited to test the Kodak photo book software (which you can freely download here) which allowed me to assemble some of my favorite travel photos of trips [...]

The Travelettes Book Launch Party in Berlin

After 6 months of writing, editing and then editing some more, we were so happy and proud to finally be able to celebrate the launch of our new book "In High Heels um die Welt" with all our friends at Sing Blackbird in Berlin last night.

The e-mail home is an essential part of every traveller's journey, as when intrepid teenagagers or first time travellers set off to explore deepest darkest Peru it can be a nail-biting time for worried parents. I was recently gifted a hilarious book called Don't Tell Mum: Hair-Raising Messages Home From Gap-Year Travellers. It's a collection of anecdotal [...]

Me and my Kindle

I'm a self confessed book geek and on a good day by the pool I can read 2 or 3 books in a go. Not only does this become an expensive habit to keep me amused when topping up my tan, it also means I sometimes have to sacrifice packing a dress or two in order to make room for my holiday library. That's why I'm very happy to have my Kindle accompanying me this[...]

A chance to win a South East Asia travel guide

Hey ladies, as I told you before, I spent last week traveling through 4 German cities presenting some of my photos of Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam as part of an info evening on those countries organized by STA TRAVEL.
