The 8 Best Coffee Houses in NYC

•••
I don’t have an office, rather I have a coffee shop where my "co-workers" are writers and artists who set up their laptops and fuel their craft with cappuccinos and French pastries. Instead of oppressive silence or the symphony of fellow employees typing away on outdated keyboards, I have light jazz mixing with the sweet smell of coffee and the day’s bakery [...]

How to plan the perfect girlfriend getaway in London

•••
It was August and it had been one year since the first ever Travelettes meet-up in Croatia. Perfect timing for another Travelettes re-union! To spice things up a little, we wanted to explore a city together - easy to reach, cool and big enough to get lost for a day or two. Paris, Berlin or London were our options of choice - the discussions were endless; but[...]

Borneo - Where the Wild Things are

•••
Back when I started diving in March my friend who had accompanied me to Koh Tao was amazed by my sudden interest in the marine life. Apparently I have a short attention span in all other things so the idea that I would stare at fish for hours at a time and not get bored was beyond her. And while diving takes a bit more than just staring at fish, I guess it w[...]

A Travelettes' Journey into the Sahara Desert

•••
Seeing the Sahara Desert is like stepping into a desktop screensaver - all at once familiar yet surreal, almost too pristine and too perfect to be surrounding me. The moment I set foot on the sand, the desert seems to engulf me as I am instantly surrounded by rolling orange-red sand dunes on all sides that is interrupted only by an occasional bush spotting t[...]

18 things to do in Copenhagen on a budget

•••
Yes, you read it right, Copenhagen is doable on a budget! Anyone who has ever travelled to Scandinavia knows that it can be very expensive but unbeknownst to many tourists, there are a lot of awesome things that you can do for cheap - and for free. Summer is a glorious time to visit, as Copenhagen comes alive and teeming with many delightful sights and prosp[...]

A Cruise on the Dalyan River

•••
Last month, I was lucky enough to go on a wonderful honeymoon. Even though I’m not married. Now, before you start thinking I crashed some poor, hapless soul's first few weeks of wedded bliss, ("Hi guys, where are we sleeping?") let me quickly explain! A dear friend of mine has had a pretty crap year and to cut a long story short, her honeymoon to Turkey was [...]

Why You Should Let Travel Break Your Heart

•••
A little while ago, one of the members of our Travelettes Facebook Group asked whether anyone had tips for dealing with the bottomless despair she was feeling upon her return from an amazing trip. In the preceding months she had been discovering new places, sharing rides with strangers, living in a big collective house with like-minded folks, and gotten swep[...]

Travel for free with Workaway

•••
After turning 30 last year, I decided it was time to leave the sunny beaches of Australia behind and give my 2-year working visa for the UK a whirl before it was too late (it's no longer valid once you turn 31). I'm not one to dilly-dally on a decision for long, so after about 6 weeks, my flight was booked, my bags were packed and I'd sold everything I owned[...]

Why to travel Iceland in Winter

•••
1 million tourists visited Iceland in 2014 - that is over 3 times as many as the local population, which only counts 320,000 Icelanders. Most of them come during the summer months (May to August) to enjoy the endless days and mostly snow-free conditions. On such a small island you can imagine how quickly this can feel crowded though. Prices increase as well [...]

10 Travel Resolutions for Every Travelette in 2015

•••
As 2014 sinks out of sight like a bright, round pink sun and 2015 rises on the horizon promising a blank canvas of opportunities, don't write a list of the things you're going to do (or not) - lose weight, clean out your closet, or get fit. Instead think about all the things you can do to get more out of your travel experiences next year. Whether you have no[...]
