Farewell 2011

•••
OK, so we can all have the basic and boring New Year resolutions of “lose weight”, “hit the gym”, “smoke/drink less”, “hug grandma more” etc etc, but with 2012 being the year that the world supposedly ends… surely we have to live life to the fullest?? Make the most of every month of our lives and embrace it like it’s our last?? Do you [...]

Melbourne Cup Day - The Race That Stops A Nation

•••
‘Melbourne Cup’ is an age old institution and tradition of the state of Victoria, Australia. I admit, I had never heard about it in previous trips to Oz until I came to live permanently in Melbourne and heard about an event which allowed excited Melbournians to have a public holiday. I was now an excited Melbournian who got a day off... but what was this[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Melbourne

•••
Melbourne is sometimes incredibly stressful, and I find myself getting anxious and on edge in my free time and days off from work. “But it’s so cultural!! You must be in love with the city!!”, I hear you Travelettes cry, and yes that is correct. However, there is so bloody much to see, do, eat, drink, explore and discover, that I constantly find myself[...]

Central America's Biggest Market

•••
The big native market in the town of Chichicastenango (short: Chichi) in Guatemala, is one of the most important trade markets in the whole of Central America, showing off the many unique characters of the different communities, which all express themselves through the different patterns, styles and colours of their clothing. This is where different ethnic g[...]

23 Lessons I Have Learnt From Traveling

•••
I stumbled across Karen’s blog, Dreamin’ The Life, and her incredibly poignant and insightful post of ‘27 things I’ve learnt in 27 years’. It got me thinking, what had I learnt in my 23 years? I don't feel particularly wise at all and feel I have so much to see/learn/do/go, but as Karen said, “sometimes you have to stop, and look back and realise[...]

Brussels on a Sunday

•••
I come from a '24 hours a day/ 7 day a week' culture where I can buy and do almost anything I want at any time of the day …. yes even on a Sunday! So when I recently moved to Brussels I was a bit surprised when I popped down to my local H&M to by socks and it was closed. Closed? What? This is Europe in 2011 and I can’t by socks on a Sunday? So I[...]

Singapore, je t'adore

•••
Word of warning: don’t even think about doing all that in one day as the heat will send you delusional and recovery time by a pool will be a necessity. I would like to indulge detail of my personal highlight of Singapore: Bugis Street Market and Bugis Village. My boyfriend and I rocked up to Singapore at 10am to freak tropical thunderstorms [...]

"To Market, To Market..."

•••
A visit to Australia would be blasphemous if one did not rifle and search through the plentiful markets which make regular appearances throughout the massive country. When traveling on a shoestring, little cheap random charms, trinkets, treasures and momentos that you pick up can speak volumes in memories when you return home. However, traveling is the obv[...]

Robin Street Market: travel from your armchair

•••
The rain is lashing down outside, it’s cold and gloomy, you’re wrapped up in a blanket next to a roaring fire dreaming of far away countries with exotic sun, bustling markets full of unique items, taste-bud tantalising and exciting cuisines being thrust upon you… it all seems like a world away when you’re at home after work, surfing the net checking [...]

Streetstyle - muses of the world

•••
Whether it's Paris, New York, Berlin or London, each city is different and identified by a strong eclectic culture of people, music, food and yes - fashion. I am not referring to the local designers but to the everyday people who, through their clothes, express their individuality as it was shaped by the culture around them. Luckily we live in a day and a[...]
