•••
A good backpack can make or break your trip - you will either start punching and kicking it every time you relieve your poor shoulders to set it down on the ground, or... well to be fair, I've always felt that way even with a good backpack, because I overpack and start attaching more and more things to the outside straps of my pack.

8 Essential Winter Travel Accessoires

•••
No matter how often I travel, I just can't seem to solve the mystery of packing. If I don't over-pack, I run out of clean t-shirts after three days or realise I forgot to pack any socks at all.

It's that time of the year: next weekend, four weeks before Christmas Eve, Christmas markets all over Europe literally hit the light switch and open their gates for happy children and thirsty grown-ups.

A Tent for Travelettes

•••
Camping makes my heart beat faster - bonfire, BBQs and picnics, a comfy sleeping bag, being woken up by the sun and watching a beautiful sunset over the hills. That a camping trip does not always work out that way has been stated before, but ever since I moved to the UK I realized that the cooler temperatures of the north make for a very pleasant camping exp[...]

Liberty: The Shopping Emporium of London

When it comes to large, established department stores, Harrods seems to always be the tourist fixation when visiting London… but think of Liberty when you want to get less mainstream and more eclectic.
