The Travelettes Guide to Perth

•••
Perth was nothing like what I expected. Located in Western Australia (WA) and being the most isolated city in the world, I expected it to be a very small condensed place with all the excitement residing in the city centre. In fact, the fun lies across the entire expanse of Perth throughout many suburbs which if not explored; means you haven’t fully seen Pert[...]

Tweed Ride: The world's most stylish bike ride

•••
Tweed Ride. Sounds quite enigmatic doesn’t it? Well, it’s pretty much what it says on the tin: people dressed in tweed riding around on bikes. This group bicycle ride began in London where participants were to dress in traditional British cycling attire on vintage classic bicycles to embrace the spirit of the old days and the fashionable vintage era of tr[...]

Melbourne Cup Day - The Race That Stops A Nation

•••
‘Melbourne Cup’ is an age old institution and tradition of the state of Victoria, Australia. I admit, I had never heard about it in previous trips to Oz until I came to live permanently in Melbourne and heard about an event which allowed excited Melbournians to have a public holiday. I was now an excited Melbournian who got a day off... but what was this all[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Melbourne

•••
Melbourne is sometimes incredibly stressful, and I find myself getting anxious and on edge in my free time and days off from work. “But it’s so cultural!! You must be in love with the city!!”, I hear you Travelettes cry, and yes that is correct. However, there is so bloody much to see, do, eat, drink, explore and discover, that I constantly find myself writi[...]

24h in Munich - a short city guide

•••
With Octoberfest in full swing, I figure this is the right time to tell you guys about our recent trip to Munich. We were here for just a stopover after our trip to Innsbruck, with just one day to spend before our plane would take us back home to Berlin. Shortage of time is no reason for us to not give  it our best shot at exploring the city, so we could hel[...]

Singapore, je t'adore

•••
Word of warning: don’t even think about doing all that in one day as the heat will send you delusional and recovery time by a pool will be a necessity. I would like to indulge detail of my personal highlight of Singapore: Bugis Street Market and Bugis Village. My boyfriend and I rocked up to Singapore at 10am to freak tropical thunderstorms af[...]

"To Market, To Market..."

•••
A visit to Australia would be blasphemous if one did not rifle and search through the plentiful markets which make regular appearances throughout the massive country. When traveling on a shoestring, little cheap random charms, trinkets, treasures and momentos that you pick up can speak volumes in memories when you return home. However, traveling is the obvio[...]

For a job, I recently had the chance to research and test 3 of Berlin's best breakfast spots. I am so exited about what I found, that I felt I should not hide them from you. In fact, I am introducing a new series to travelettes called "Breakfast Wonderland" which will introduce you to some of our favorite spots worldwide to have breakfast in. Starting wit[...]

Robin Street Market: travel from your armchair

•••
The rain is lashing down outside, it’s cold and gloomy, you’re wrapped up in a blanket next to a roaring fire dreaming of far away countries with exotic sun, bustling markets full of unique items, taste-bud tantalising and exciting cuisines being thrust upon you… it all seems like a world away when you’re at home after work, surfing the net checking up on th[...]
