Top 10 neighbourhood bars in Rio de Janeiro

•••
Dear Travelettes, Ever so often I come across something on the internet that immediately sparks my desire to escape everyday life and travel far, far away. This morning, while I was having coffee and reading the online papers, the headline "Top 10 neighbourhood bars in Rio" caught my eye. I've never been to Brazil, and I was sure that the next time my tra[...]

"To Market, To Market..."

•••
A visit to Australia would be blasphemous if one did not rifle and search through the plentiful markets which make regular appearances throughout the massive country. When traveling on a shoestring, little cheap random charms, trinkets, treasures and momentos that you pick up can speak volumes in memories when you return home. However, traveling is the obv[...]

India - the temple of the Sikh

•••
My trip to India -one of the most exciting things I did in my life so far. I will give you a few insights on all the places I've visited and all the things I got to know. First stop: The temple of the Sikh. Sikh is a religious schism of the Hindu Belief. Translated directly, it means follower of the Guru Nanak, who is one of the 10 Gurus, the Sikh belief [...]

Bavaria - the beautiful

•••
My first real trip to Bavaria. I had been to Germany's most Southern Bundesland (state) before but never for more than one night, so I was pretty exited what a whole 5 days in 4 different Bavarian cities would bring. I had a plan ready that I would eat all the Knödel and Hax'n my stomach could fit, something I mastered with the professionalism of someone w[...]

Trof - the best hangout in Manchester

•••
Anyone who's ever been a university student will be familiar with those mornings after long and eventful nights out: all you want to do is  crawl back under the sheets, but both the sunlight beaming through cracks in the curtain and the heap of books at the foot of your bed, waiting to be read, prevent you from doing so. Get up and out of bed and an incredi[...]

A Few Days in Yellowstone National Park

•••
Yellowstone has got to be the most famous National Park in the United States. It’s a top destination on a lot of travelers’ USA itinerary and somewhere I, as an American,  felt repeatedly embarrassed for never having visited. Ever since I was a little girl and first heard about geysers and grizzly bears, I wanted to go to Yellowstone, but the trek from [...]

Foreign supermarktes: my secret obsession

•••
I love travelling + I love shopping + I love food = I love food shopping while travelling. Wait, what? Ladies, it's time I confess one of my strangest habits: I take an immense pleasure in grocery shopping, especially while I'm travelling. This sounds silly, but it wouldn't be an uncommen sight to see me browsing the aisle of a french Carrefour supermarke[...]

Visiting Versailles in the fall

•••
As one of the largest and beautiful palaces in the world Le château de Versailles should (hopefully) be high on the list of places to visit when you are in Paris. The royal reign at Versailles ended in the late 1700's around the time when the French were in the mood for choping off some heads and thus decapitated their King and Queen (Louis XVI and M[...]

The Pale Blue Door - Dinner in a Traveling Wonderland

•••
About a week ago, I got an exited email from a friend in London telling me about something called the Pale Blue Door. A type of supper club that travels around the globe always building a magic space made of old wood and things they find or they are given to then open their pale blue door to their guests for just 12 nights during the course of 3 weeks. 3 inc[...]
