The Best Travel Books for Globetrotters to Get this Christmas

This post contains affiliate links. Before I started travelling the world full-time, I escaped to foreign worlds with books.

Why Travel is Scary – How to Beat Your Demons

It was my very first trip and I was scared. Travel is scary. What had I gotten myself into? At first, I told not a soul, I didn’t want anyone to instill doubt in me. I already had enough of that. I wanted it to be my big secret. After all, I had basically signed […]

How to Survive Hotels and Travelling with a Dust Allergy

If you have a dust allergy then I don’t need to tell you how vital good bedding is for your nightly rest. But when you can’t protect your skin from the contact with the tiny crawlers and their poop (which is what you actually are allergic to), then you might feel tired and itchy after […]

Why You Should Really Take Your Time with Travel + free printable

Why You Should Really Take Your Time with Travelling

When I landed in Korea, I decided to take my time with travelling and settle down for a week or so to get work done. To not travel. It was hard. It was like getting an instant rehab, sitting in dimly lit hostel rooms didn’t add to my mood, I turned grumpy and the workaholic […]

How to Not Feel Awkward When Eating Alone

How to Not Feel Awkward When Eating Alone

When you visit Japan, you will be surprised by the number of people. And most of them seem to spend their days walking in their own little bubble. Riding the subway with closed eyes, walking over crossroads without looking left or right when the traffic lights turn red for cars and eating alone at sushi […]

Healthy Eating Habits for Your Travels You Haven't Thought About

Healthy Eating Habits for Your Travels You Haven’t Thought About

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 […]

When Travels Go Wrong – You May Freak Out Now

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 […]

Bath & Hygiene or Lack thereof during the Time of Jane Austen and the Romans

The Shocking History of Bath Jane Austen Didn’t Tell

This post is sponsored. “So did I get that right, the men would relieve themselves right next to where people where eating?” I thought I must have misunderstood; this could not be the prim and proper uptight England that Jane Austen lived in, let alone the history of Bath, THE spa town of England.

You’re Planning Your Holiday All Wrong

You’re Planning Your Holiday All Wrong

I hate to be the one to tell you, but you will regret your next holiday. You’ll hate getting up way too early every morning (and if you are an early riser, you’ll hate the late nights). You’ll hate having cameras and selfie sticks shoved in your face. You’ll hate the construction works that ruin […]

10 Ways to Overcome Shyness through Travel

How to not Fall Sick While Travelling

Falling sick while travelling is never a good idea. I did not want to count how many times I had to frequent the hostel bathroom that morning. Seven. It was 8 am. This was the second time I had had food poisoning this year and the second time I fell sick within the last two […]
