Road Trip through Spain part 2: Murcia y La Manga

•••
Day 2 of our spontaneous and utterly chaotic road trip through Spain. After spending some time in Barcelona and recuperating from the nighttime madness there via a lovely beach day in Sitges, my friends and I hit the road and drove all the way to Murcia, which is located in the southwest of Spain. It's very likely that none or very few of you will hav[...]

My day at the Grand Canyon

•••
Dear Travelettes, during my recent trip through the United States, me and my buddy Anthony had one very particular destination in mind, which, for different reasons was close to our hearts. While I had been craving a visit to the Grand Canyon ever since I had named my other blog Glamcanyon, Anthony had a special mission to fulfil and he made me his sid[...]

Road Trip through Spain part 1: Sitges

•••
Dear Travelettes, I recently discovered that there are two kinds of people to travel with. There’s the über-organized traveller that plans, books and arranges everything in advance, never fails to read the map correctly and leads you to super-secret locations that even the locals don’t know. And then there are the people who will always miss their flight,[...]

What is a legendary road trip without the right music? Flicking through my I-Pod, there are heaps of songs that remind me of great moments and great places. Below, find my top 10 of favourite travel songs: 1. Moby - Porcelain ...Driving alone with my 4WD at the endless Cable Beach in Broome, Australia (God, I miss that car!!!) 2. KT Tunstall [...]

Nomad tales - leaving the road, finding a home

•••
My love for travel always involves some serious complications because, for the most part, I don't have a "home base". This means constantly moving from place to place with a a roughly outlined plan and a frustrating amount of baggage... so maybe that makes me a nomad. Have you ever felt this way? If so then you've probably experienced some unexpected trials [...]

On the road - Pt 2

•••
When Anthony and I embarked on our road trip, we left Austin pretty late, at 2 in the afternoon and were overambitious as to how much time we would need to get form A to B. Whatever time we planned on, it was always a few hours more and it sure didn't help that we were so in awe of everything we drove past. We stopped a lot at random locations so I could tak[...]

USA on the road - Pt 1

•••
On my recent road trip through the US, I took advantage of various means of transportation inlcuding planes, buses and cars. The reason why traveling by car was my favorite is because you are free to stop along the roadside as much as you like. When you see somehting, you stop or you turn around. You get out, marvle, take photos, get back in the car and hit [...]

Photos of New Orleans

•••
How was New Orleans? - I get asked from pretty much everyone I tell about my 1-month trip through 8 major American cities. There is a magic about this town rivalled by few others. New Orleans is home to some of the most laid-back people I have ever met. Example - I once waited on a streetcar for over 20 minutes. Asking a woman waiting with me how often those[...]

From New York to San Francisco - My USA trip itinerary

•••
Dear travelettes, I am stoked, exhilerated, breathless with exitement for my upcoming trip through the United States. Even though I've spent a little over 2 years in that country, I still feel like I barely even know it and that the world existing between San Francisco and New York (the 2 cities I spent those 2 years in) holds a lot for me to discover. [...]

Mini-break by bike: Lisbon - the Alentejo coast

•••
What do you do when you have about 30 euros (and a week until you get your next salary), 3 days off and a strong urge to travel? I was complaining to a good friend about this, and got this e-mail back: be ready at 7AM tomorrow, have about 10 euros ready, your bicycle and two changes of clothes. The morning after we were ready for 3 days of pedaling in Por[...]
