The Travelettes Guide to South Australia

•••
I may be slightly biased, being born and raised in this wonderful part of the world, but I stand firmly behind my statement that South Australia is one of the most underrated destinations in the Southern Hemisphere. It is astounding to me that this beautiful pocket of Australia is so often overlook by travelers who flee to the big smoke of Sydney or the beac[...]

Getting to know Havana’s travel quirks

•••
‘Havana ooo na na, half of my heart is in Havana ooo na na’. Ah, the song of last summer on everyone’s lips. Ironic how within months of this song being all over my radio, half of my heart was indeed in Havana (ooo na na). I’m a city girl. I love the convenience of rolling out of bed and heading for a coffee. Popping to the market on a luncht[...]

The only 3 things you need to know about Bacalar- Mexico’s secret paradise

•••
When I first started planning my trip to Mexico here’s what I imagined. Enjoying the white beaches and washing down Modelos in Playa Del Carmen and Cancun. A quick break in a luxurious resort on the Riviera Maya (if I could get a good deal). Checking out some Mayan ruins in Tulum and finishing my trip in the notoriously dangerous Mexico City (just b[...]

Saudi Arabia- Is this the world’s newest, most controversial travel destination?

•••
“Cover your hair sister, you’re in Saudi Arabia now.” Something I became all too used to hearing on the streets of 2012 Riyadh. Only 6 years ago. But under the rule of the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and the implementation of ‘Vision 2030’, just maybe, Saudi Arabia is in with a legitimate chance of becoming a tourist destination. Probably q[...]

The Travelettes Guide to experiencing Christmas in South Tyrol

•••
I've been to South Tyrol quite a few times and it's one of those places that just never disappoints. Maybe it's because it's in Italy, which to me is one of those countries I just can't help but love. The food, the people, the culture - there just is nothing I don't like about it. Take all those things about Italy and add a humble mountain range (the Alps) t[...]

10 things to do in New York

•••
New York is simply one of those places that I consider home. Not the type of home your mother lives in and where you are being served hot chicken soup and hugs but more the type of home when you first live by yourself and the world is big and exciting and a little bit lonely and frightening too. that kind of home. That said, I've been coming back for many[...]

Is El Raval Barcelona's coolest neighborhood?

•••
I was only 19 when I first went to Barcelona. And I didn't come as tourist. I arrived with just one suitcase and €270 cash in my pocket, ready to pay for my room in an apartment I would share with 4 other people from 4 different nations. That room was in a part of Barcelona called El Raval, making up one side of the infamous La Rambla, the Barrio Gotico's [...]

My best tips for flying - 20 years in economy class

•••
I always laugh at posts titled 'How to make economy class as comfortable as business' or such. We all know there is just no way to turn an economy flight into a business class experience regardless of how much nice lotion you use during a flight. But even I will admit that after almost 20 years of flying long distance - yes, I am that old! - I have learne[...]

Top 10 tips for flying with small children

•••
Writing any sort of guideline for kids is always tricky business. Kids are no less unique and different in their ways as adults are and to pretend that one-size-fits-all type of stuff could really apply to each and every child is utter nonsense. What has however worked for me with my child was reading different opinions and various guides just like this one [...]

If you're a nomad by nature then the life of a regular tourist is not enough for you. You want to keep on moving from place to place and that's where things get tricky. If you [...]
