10 reasons to go to Brabant

•••
Had you asked me a week ago why anyone would want to travel to Brabant in the Netherlands, I would have probably replied that I knew next to nothing about it. So far, my awareness of the Netherlands did not stretch far beyond tulips, cheese and Amsterdam; it was only back in October of last year that I heard of Brabant Nacht from Vanessa, who wrote of her ex[...]

10 Vegetarian dishes from around the world you NEED to try!

•••
It always surprises me that people think being a vegetarian would make travel harder. Truth is, it's something I rarely think about. I've traveled to around 60 countries in the world and have always found vegetarian food. True, sometimes there may only be one option (Mongolia I'm looking at you!), but in most other places there's a magnitude of foods to try [...]

A city of cultures: Discovering the local side to Singapore

•••
It’s not everyday that the chief concierge of your hotel takes you out on a tour of his city. But here I am, bright and early in the lobby of the Shangri-La Singapore about to be taken out by Rajkumer, the Shangri-La’s chief concierge, a Singaporean of Indian descent and a man passionate about his city. I’ve always thought Singapore was somewhat misunders[...]

Traveling sustainably: A Green trip to Hamburg

•••
We all know it: traveling is a wonderful thing. Period. But it is often also full of contradictions and dilemmas. To me, some of the biggest of these are to justify all the pollution and problems it can cause. To put it bluntly, I wonder often if we have to harm our planet in order to discover its beauty. I don’t know; one sounds antithetical to the other, d[...]

The lazy girl's guide to keeping fit when traveling

•••
I'm not going to lie, when thinking about top tips for keeping fit when traveling, I caught myself thinking: 'Would I actually freaking do this?' Would I put time aside to condition and tone my body, instead of floating on my back in a sea? Would I go for a run when dealing with jetlag (or tropical humid heat). Would I find time to salute the sun when it's e[...]

10 Cool Hostels in Europe you should check out this summer

•••
I have a confession to make: I have never stayed in the dorm room of a hostel. There, I said it. I don't even think that it has anything to do with my wise old age of thirty-something; sharing a room with strangers was just never my approach of getting a good night's sleep. In addition, I like an accommodation with a story, a sense of place and preferably so[...]
