Where do you wanna go?
Did you know that on average European traveller causes a 10 tons of CO2 emissions a year and the American one 19 tons, according to Conde Nast Traveler! That’s not the way to travel sustainably. I do not need to tell you that that is terrible for our environment. After all, it’s what you came […]
I have always wanted to eat healthily during my travels. And I started with a firm resolution when I embarked on my world trip, I promise! But when I realised that New Zealand bell peppers would cost me $3 each and a can of spaghetti 60c, I was seriously torn. Every now and then I […]
I am always hungry. Tell me I am not alone. Funnily enough, the more I travel and actively explore new sites throughout the day, the more I forget to eat. Oh, and I rarely have healthy eating habits. You can blame it on the jetlag messing up my inner clock or on my cheapskate travel […]
Summer is here and even though I am not one to stress over the bikini bod (chocolate is worth it much more than starving yourself, if you ask me) and am perfectly out of shape as you have probably guessed from my many hiking posts about Mount Amos in Tasmania, the Heart Attack Hill at […]
I was supposed to jump down THERE? Half an hour ago I had been all cocky and thought it wasn’t so bad. But now that I was supposed to take the leap of faith during the first of my many outdoor adventures, I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t do it. Repeating […]
Great, a gate in my face. And it was locked. Of course. Just when I realised I had forgotten my railpass in my hotel, had to catch a train in 20 minutes and was at the other end of town without wifi and a sim card that would not charge me horrendous fees for calling […]
This year is epic! Reason #1: you still have time to tick off your dream bucketlist destination. And no excuses! (Read my tips for scoring affordable last minute trips or how to find the cheapest flights.) Reason #2: if you’re a literature nerd like me, you’ll celebrate the anniversary of Shakespeare, Jane Austen’s Emma and […]
So Britain is out. Not sure we can call it Great Britain much longer seeing the new probabilities of Scotland and Northern Ireland wanting to become independent now more than ever. Political impact aside, what does this mean for us travellers? Or more specifically, what does it mean for British travellers and expats? Brexit and […]
Here is another reason I simply HAVE to love Wellington: It is home to the bestest (and costume craziest) TV series, which happens to be my favourite and which also happens to be unknown to every person I have met so far. Never mind, I had fun hunting down all the The Tribe locations in […]
Mentally bonding over shared experiences with canned sardines is no fun and it makes you ask, is it really worth it to buy the cheapest flight there is? Is there no other way to book flights? There sure is if you know when to look for cheap flights. Timing is everything.
It’s no secret that I am no fan of souvenirs. Not the typical suspects anyway. Give me a typical food item over a key ring any day as a souvenir from your trip. Buy me something silly yet useful, like a mafia apron from Sicily or a Cadbury chocolate from England instead of little attraction […]
So I missed it by a day, but that does not mean that I completely failed my mission of chasing down the sakura and doing some cherry blossom watching. I located the best places to admire the splendour of the hundreds and thousands of cherry trees in full bloom. If you ever get to Tokyo […]
