Tips on clothes-shopping before and during travel

•••
Now that we've discussed meeting boys on the road let's talk about the other things in life that can't be forgotten while traveling: fashion. Looking fashionable is always desirable however I often, when beginning to travel, found it difficult to "keep up" with trends as I carried 2 pairs of pants and 5 t-shirts. Not quite so fashionable. Then I realized the[...]

Exploring Malaysia - High on Shopping and Mountain Air in Kota Kinabalu

•••
The typical backpacker route in Malaysia often sticks closely to the Western Peninsula, what with Kuala Lumpur (KL) being a top bustling destination with its fun Chinatown and staggering sights of the Petronas Towers. However, a quick plane ride can get you to the Eastern Peninsula: Borneo. Borneo is famous for its Orangutan sanctuaries (which I highly recom[...]

Austin: vintage shopping guide

•••
Dear Travelettes, I love vintage and it is something I look for in every city I go to. While most cities have a few vintage stores that might not even be too bad, it only happens relatively rarely that a place boasts a whole range of amazing vintage shopping options. One of those places is Austin, Texas. There aresome real gems over here with many origina[...]

Beachtime is now neon

•••
Dear Travelettes, before going to Miami I was obsessed with the idea of spending as much time as possible on the beach and obviously, buying cute beach outfits was imperative. On the lookout for a light beach dress I went to H&M and found IT. A bright neon orange wide dress, knee-length with 2 large pockets. With my pale skin in mind I stepped to the [...]

Summer 2010 - bikinis or bathing suits?

•••
Dear travelettes, now that the first hot days of the year have arrived I find myself thinking about swimwear. I'm pretty sure that last year my bathing suit came out only for a short week during a trip to Thailand, but for this year I am planning on a whole lot more beach time and it is time for a sparkly, brilliant, star-of-the-beach bathing suit or bikini[...]

Packing Essentials: Trench Coat season is coming

•••
What's the weather like when you look outside your window? Sunny? Windy? Rain? Or maybe all of the above? Living in Berlin I'm voting for the latter and from experience I know that places like London, Prague or New York are similar around this time of year. It is hence a good idea to choose your wardrobe carefully when traveling this season. Personally, I am[...]

Tips for legitimately traveling LIGHT.

•••
Okay, let's be honest here. We've heard the screams or semi-pleasant whispers of, "less is more," and I KNOW that you probably claim to believe it, to the hilt, every day of your life. EXCEPT for when it's time to pack for a series of semi-short trips smooshed into a big, long trip. This applies particularly when you know you will be staying in a foreign pla[...]

How Not to Look Like a Tourist

•••
Dear travelettes, I'd like to address a very serious issue. So serious, in fact, that it could decide over whether or not you have your wallet stolen, pay double for a cute new blouse or even become abducted and shot in the head. Ladies. I am not being dramatic, just realistic. I am talking about the immense disadvantages--no, risks!--that come with dress[...]
