10 alternative things to do in Melbourne

•••
Melbourne is always on my mind, especially when life in the UK gets a bit tough. I recall the sunshine, the happy memories, the friends and the fun alternative things to do in Melbourne that don’t exist over here on this cold island, which is getting colder by the day after this recent referendum. With the fear of Brexit instilled in my tired British he[...]

Could this be the Number One Summer Accessory?

•••
It's the same problem each summer. I have nothing to wear, I need an entirely new wardrobe and an essential part of that is the perfect pair of sunglasses. With a whole 3 seasons in between I can't get myself to muster up the same level of excitement for the stuff I wore the previous year and so I often spend a considerable amount of time in the first part [...]

Why Valencia Should Be Your New Favourite European City

•••
Maybe it was because I had so few expectations or little time to think about it, but Valencia won my heart by storm. The Spanish seaside town literally had everything I could have wished for: parks, great cafes to work and read in, passionate artists who are up for talking to strangers (me), a lively street life, awesome food - and a chill atmosphere. There'[...]

The Best Shoes for Winter Travel (and How to Keep Warm Feet)

•••
Travelling in winter - whether with carry-on or a massive backpack - can be quite tricky to pack for.

The Travelettes Guide to Quito

•••
When in doubt about where to begin when travelling South America, always go for the underdog. Quito might not be as famous for nightlife and music as Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires; it is not as well-known a UNESCO Heritage Site as Cusco in the Peruvian Andes or as infamous among beach-lovers like Cartagena. It is an underdog, yes, but it was also selected a[...]
