Getting Ready for an Epic American Road Trip

•••
After an amazing winter season in Whistler, Canada, my partner in crime Henry and I decided to go on an epic road trip around Canada and the US. Of course a trip like that requires a lot of preparation and planning. To make everybody's lives a little easier, I have collected our top tips, so your road trip can be as amazing as ours!

Filming and Dancing in Eastern Europe

•••
Traveling with someone is a bit of a tricky thing. I think over the years I adopted a rather questionable habit that I’m actually more comfortable alone: You get to be just so flexible, are likely to meet more new people than otherwise and everything’s just that bit more intense, both the good and the bad days. And oh how much you learn about yourself! [...]

A Visit to California's Most Haunted Ghost Town

•••
"...and that was the first time I realized I saw a ghost.." The ranger of Bodie Historic Park had just finished telling me about the first time she caught glimpse of the alleged spirit that haunts this pioneer town. I felt odd listening to her - not quite believing her story yet somehow not disbelieving it; feeling an overall sense of unease and discomfo[...]

The Travelettes Guide to California's Route 395

•••
I am on the open road of California’s Route 395 extending all the way from the Canadian border to Los Angeles. I am making my way around Death Valley, aptly named for its extreme temperatures and desert landscape that makes living here difficult. As I drive past striped canyons and salt flats, it’s hard to believe just a few days ago I was in a drama[...]

•••
On May 17, 2014 (my 24th birthday) I woke up early in Barbados. I stepped out from under the mosquito net hanging above my host’s bed and embraced the morning sun shining through the French patio doors. I had my whole day planned (sort of): a surf lesson at Zed’s Surfing School at 10am; a short drive to St. Lawrence Gap to check out the beach, the res[...]

How to road trip on the Alentejo Coast, Portugal

•••
Road trips. Those words immediately conjure thoughts of carefree holidays, following the open road as far as the eye can see, aiming for the horizon with great tunes and not stopping until you stumble upon a gorgeous beach or a river to cool off in. And with the cold of winter setting in for us in the European northern hemisphere, it’s only natural for us [...]

Glamping and roadtripping in Wales

•••
You know it’s a good day when you start the day at 6am, jump in a car and drive a few hundred miles west, hike up a mountain and then spot about ten dolphins doing their thing from the top. But let me start at the beginning. It was about 50 hours until my graduation, 62 hours until I’d leave England, so there’d at least be 48 hours for a d[...]

Top Tips for a Road Trip in Iceland

•••
I don't know about you, but I'm all crazy about Iceland. The little insular state up north was my home for five months a couple of years ago, and ever since I've been dreaming of my return. Maybe this desire seems familiar to you, and maybe 2014 should be the year in which we make our dreams come true! Just recently I stumbled upon this post by my favourite [...]
