To the Woman About to Travel the World Alone

You are about to chase the world, chase adventure, and chase pain. You might come back, you might not. You will explore ancient temples and run around with gelato in one hand and an Italian lover in the other (hopefully)! You will learn to believe that luke-warm is no good, and that culture and street food and local people are the essence of experience. You [...]

The ultimate Travelettes Packing List for India

Before my recent 10-day trip to India there were a lot of questions to be asked. Why would you go there? Is it safe? Why are you taking that risk? - those were the questions my mum was asking. Which vaccinations should I get? How to avoid biting monkeys? What will I eat that is not too spicy? - that would be my best friend, who was going to join me. And[...]

10 Ways to do Summer right

Today I want to talk about the weather. Not something I usually do unless I'm getting sucked into awkward small talk or I'm cold. Which, truth to be told, I am about 97% of the time since I moved from Cape Town to Hamburg. Exceptions are when I am at Bikram yoga or wearing my wetsuit. But today I want to talk about a different kind of weather as we have a he[...]

A Letter to the Ghosts of Travel Friends Past

In many ways, the collapse of our friendship feels like a one night stand where I play the part of the overtly romantic person who seems to think our exchange meant the world and you play the role of the one who woke up early and simply walked away. I know it’s more complicated than that – as most things in life tend to be – but to have traveled toget[...]

24 Tips On How To Travel On A Budget

I like to think that I’m quite well-educated in the art of travelling on a budget. Some call it ‘travelling on a shoestring’, but I like to call it being super smart with my money and making that dollar stretch as far as I can. Stretch it till it screams!
