How to dress for a road trip (according to the movies)

Road trip check-list: you have the vehicle, the maps, an enthusiastic travel companion and the perfect soundtrack. But what clothes should you pack? Sure, you could solve this by settling for comfy tracksuits, but you don’t want to be caught wearing them on every photo from your trip (unless of course you are going for the full-on gangsta look: in this ca[...]

Where Neon City rests its Bones

When visitors think of Las Vegas, naturally everything glitz and glamour will spring to their mind: streets lined with posh hotels, world-famous show attractions, and 24-hour nightlife.

Attic Vintage: Las Vegas' best kept secret

I came to Vegas with only one thing to do on my list: i needed to find a vintage shop.

My perfect day in Brooklyn

A few days in New York is never enough, in fact I don't think a lifetime is enough to appreciate this amazing city. On my bucket-list for my last trip to the big apple was spending time across the river in Dumbo & venturing into Brooklyn, an area I'd never explored before. As luck had it, or didn't have it in this case, my 4 day Brooklyn sejour was cut s[...]

Retro motel glamour

I sometimes believe I was born & raised in the wrong decade. Although the 90's brought me great joy (thanks mainly to the Spice Girls) I often wish I could have been a Travelette from another time, specifically the 1960's or early 1970's. So yes it was before the days of the cheap flights, hair straighteners and travel blogging, but there was something s[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Surviving Khao San Road

After returning from my recent trip to Thailand, people asked what my highlight was. It was definitely different from my first trip to the country of smiles and Pad Thai noodles, all three years ago (wow, time flies!). My new answer was Bangkok. The capital city it was this time! I know we've been going on about our love for Bangkok before, but Thailand gets[...]
