How to dress for a road trip (according to the movies)

•••
Road trip check-list: you have the vehicle, the maps, an enthusiastic travel companion and the perfect soundtrack. But what clothes should you pack? Sure, you could solve this by settling for comfy tracksuits, but you don’t want to be caught wearing them on every photo from your trip (unless of course you are going for the full-on gangsta look: in this [...]

Do you dare to bare all?

•••
I'm a lot more likely to be found on a beach in the north of England or the Belgian coast than in the Mediterranean - and it's usually a bit chilly there without a thermal windproof rain jacket never mind without a bikini top, yet regardless of the weather topless sunbathing has always been a bit of a minefield to me. My initial reaction is not one [...]

100 little things that travel has taught me

•••
Travel has been one of my most valuable teachers. Rather than sit in a classroom and learn about the world through a someone else's eyes, I did it through adventures and misadventures, tears and laughter. I know I still have so much to discover, but here are some lessons that sometimes I had to learn the hard way. Some of them I already kinda knew, some I ar[...]

10 Reasons Why Britannia Rules

•••
Attention! Diamond jubilee fever is officially over after reaching its ultimate peak with the Queen's birthday yesterday. Stores have spent the last two weeks frantically stocking up on emergency supplies. 364 miles of bunting has been snapped up at Sainsbury's and Asda has ordered in a massive 2.8 million Victoria sponge cakes to supply the demand of the ma[...]

Attic Vintage: Las Vegas' best kept secret

•••
I came to Vegas with only one thing to do on my list: i needed to find a vintage shop. When I thought of Nevada's sin city, what came to my mind were tall women in glamorous gowns with high heels and feather boas, standing by the gambling tables watching their husbands and sugar daddies lose a fortune or win big. Surely there would have to be a vintage shop [...]

A day on Rottnest Island, Australia

•••
Over on the far western side of Australia, just off the coast of the most isolated city in the World, lies a small island of swooping hillsides and golden beaches with strange unique animals roaming the land. Seabirds dive above the brilliant turquoise sea that holds fantastic coral and strange gloopy sea-slugs that lurk in the clear waters of secret coves. [...]

The Silent Flip-Flop

•••
The sound of flip-flops slapping the bare skin of the bottom of feet signify the sounds of summer. We all hear it when the sun’s out and it instantly transports us to the thoughts of travels and holidays as the random flip-flops past us. So these new “Flip-Flops that don’t Flip-Flop” are quite bizarre and a struggle to get my head around. Apparently[...]

It's so lovely to hear from other female travelers who are inspired and motivated by Travelettes.net. Especially from girls who are undergoing their travels right now, blogging/recording/filming their adventures for the world to follow and share their laughs, tears, traumas and memories. And here is a perfect example of such a thing: MISSADVENTURES. O.k[...]

Hoi An: A tale of backpacker decadence

•••
Smiling faces, sparkling lights covering the tree-lined streets, ostentatious but lovely Chinese temples galore, silk and tailor shops ready to create anything your heart desires, European-style sidewalk cafes boast outrageous cocktail menus, and to top it all off, radiant rainbow lanterns glow from every storefront. Vietnam just got a whole lot better. O[...]
