The Little People Project

•••
“Abandoning Little People on the Streets since 2006” is the project's slogan, which is pretty mysterious and intriguing… but when you begin exploring this little blog, The Little People Project, the adorable art and photography that take the miniature figures around the world is captivating and you can soon lose a good couple of hours trawling through the ar[...]

The Parador: The Epitome of Jungle Luxury

•••
I spent my weekend surrounded by jungle. I saw a white faced capuchin during my morning walk. I ate lunch with an iguana beside me. I swam under a waterfall in the afternoon. I did yoga with tropical birds. I watched the sunset over the ocean as I ate dinner. The best part?  I didn't even leave my hotel. Travelettes, I have a terrible confession to make. Whe[...]

DIY: killing time during layovers with Sky Mall

•••
The Sky Mall catalog is always one of the most interesting ways I find to occupy my time during long plane rides. I have this game I play with myself where I choose what item I would give to what friend. You know, if I was the kind of person who wanted to spend money on totally useful products like a cell phone wrist carrier instead of traveling. If you’ve n[...]

Learning Bahasa Indonesian in Paradise

•••
When traveling to foreign countries where the language is literally so foreign, I found many tourists speaking LOUDER and s.l.o.w.e.r to the locals in a bizarre attempt to get understood. It seriously annoys me every time I see a traveler rudely turn their back to the waiter/market stall owner, throw up their hands and announce to their partner, “He just doe[...]

Around the World for Free

•••
Have you heard of that show ‘Around the World for Free’? I hadn’t until a few days ago, and when I saw that it was ex-reality stars being filmed to travel, I wasn’t very impressed… until I found out the details: 'Around the World for Free' (ATWFF) is a reality series that challenges an individual to get all around the world with absolutely no money and one c[...]

23 Lessons I Have Learnt From Traveling

•••
I stumbled across Karen’s blog, Dreamin’ The Life, and her incredibly poignant and insightful post of ‘27 things I’ve learnt in 27 years’. It got me thinking, what had I learnt in my 23 years? I don't feel particularly wise at all and feel I have so much to see/learn/do/go, but as Karen said, “sometimes you have to stop, and look back and realise you’ve come[...]

Blogs we like

•••
I'd like to introduce some of my favorite places on the Internet - blogs written by ladies who inspire you to jump on a plane with only your camera and a roll of film for company, so you can see the world as they do. Some of them (Alison and Sandra) were among the first blogs I read on this Internet space thingy and maybe partly responsible for me wanting to[...]

The Unity Express - a once in a lifetime journey

•••
My day job (oh yes, unfortunately this Travelette has to earn her crust before escaping to foreign paradises) is connected with innovation and sustainability so I’m constantly meeting with people who have great projects and ideas for the world. One project I came across recently is called The Unity Express and I thought that some of you might be interested i[...]

How to survive the night bus

•••
Night bus, night train, long haul flights… they all have trials and tribulations that can seriously suck but once you’ve done it once, you develop ways to endure it so allow me to share all that I have learnt… Far-flung transport travelling all have many factors in common: Delightful cramped space posing the challenge of numerous sleeping positions. You w[...]
