My first underwater camera

•••
I’ve seen a lot of great photos taken with underwater cameras and I’ve been dying to try one out for ages. So when I hijacked my family holiday this summer in the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea I thought it was the perfect opportunity to have a go and take some unflattering photos of me with a snorkel in my mouth trying to swim with the fishes. I bought [...]

Tips on clothes-shopping before and during travel

•••
Now that we've discussed meeting boys on the road let's talk about the other things in life that can't be forgotten while traveling: fashion. Looking fashionable is always desirable however I often, when beginning to travel, found it difficult to "keep up" with trends as I carried 2 pairs of pants and 5 t-shirts. Not quite so fashionable. Then I realized the[...]

Aperitivo: an Italian institution

•••
If you've been to Italy, you'll be well familiar with a culinary phenomenon I have never encountered in any other country: Aperitivo. Aperitivo started to become trendy in fashionable Milan and was quickly picked up by image-councious bars and restaurants in Rome and other Italian cities. Every night, usually from around 6 to 9pm, every self-respec[...]

Topfen, a Recipe from the Austrian Alps

•••
This winter as I braved the elements across Europe, I settled for just under a month at a dairy farm a little ways out of Salzburg in Austria. I woke up every morning at 5am to help milk to 30 or so cows, spent the day doing tasks around the house, playing with my hosts’ son, taking small walks in attempts to glimpse the Alps through the fog, and desperately[...]

Notes on Packing the Right Camera

•••
Hey ladies, One of the biggest problems I encounter when packing for trips is not how many pairs of shoes I need or what shades of nail polish to leave home. No, I struggle the most with exactly what combination of cameras and gear to bring along. We Travelettes are very passionate about our photography and while we recognize that it's ultimately up the p[...]

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[...]

Traveling veggie on a budget: dining with the Hare Krishna

•••
If you’re from a bigger city, you might have noticed a group of people chanting “Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna” dressed in some kind of peach colored Indian looking outfit your local park. I haven’t had a deeper look into their ideology, but they’re extremely friendly and I’m definitely into their cuisine. As a vegetarian, sometimes it can be a bit chall[...]

Mojito lovin'

•••
Mojitos are good. And I already told you about my personal favourite Mojito bar in Barcelona. But: I recently came across a very cool tumblr blog which judges Mojitos all around that wonderful city. Mojitos en Barcelona contuinously adds more and more bars and their Mojitos, including a five star rating system, the price and address. Salut! If you[...]

Live to eat - food tastes better in Italy

•••
Vivere per mangiare - live to eat, is a famous Italian saying which is a pretty important, if not the most important, aspect of Italian lifestyle. When I think of Italy I first think of the amazing food and, especially once I had actually visited this gorgeous country, the memory of creamy gelato, flavorful pizza and delicious pasta has forever left its mark[...]

Paris: Café Couture

•••
While having a monthly visit on my favourite DIY blog "Oustapop" I came across this great concept in Paris. In March 2010 Martena Duss and Sissi Holleis opened the fashion version of the internet café, the "café couture" called "Sweat Shop". They offer sewing machines to rent for 6€ an hour, professional advice and help included. Next to coffee and cake they[...]
