Train Ride Romance

Train rides seem to be made for quick romances, or at least they build the perfect setting for one. Although the train in this editorial looks nothing like our ICE and people are far to well dressed for travelling it makes me want to back my leather suitcase and start my trip to an unknown destiny.

Summer 2010 - bikinis or bathing suits?

Dear travelettes, now that the first hot days of the year have arrived I find myself thinking about swimwear. I'm pretty sure that last year my bathing suit came out only for a short week during a trip to Thailand, but for this year I am planning on a whole lot more beach time and it is time for a sparkly, brilliant, star-of-the-beach bathing suit or bikini[...]
