Do you need a digital detox when you are working from places all over the world? Travelling all the time is the dream, right? Well, not so much. As soon as it becomes your job, it also becomes work, it is repetitive, you have to organise and plan it, work with clients, juggle full schedules, […]
Your health will suffer from a long haul flight – or even from multiple connecting flights. Therefore, you need to look after your health when flying. You will sit a lot, won’t eat as regularly as you usually do, suffer from jetlag, etc. All this might upset your tummy or cause sleeping problems. Although there […]
Are you sad that your summer holidays are over? Or do you have some last minute tropical getaways planned? This winter, I will do things a little differently and spend Christmas on a Portuguese island and NYE in Lisbon! I am so excited but this doesn’t keep my body as warm as kit should be […]
This post contains affiliate links. I love collecting travel souvenirs but I am very particular about it. Keychains, miniature models or stickers will not be among those. What’s their use anyway? What’s the point of giving that to someone who hasn’t been to the country? I want my travel souvenirs to be much more personal. […]
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 […]
What if I told you that your brain acts like that of a dolphin when you want to sleep when travelling? A recent study has taken a closer look at why it’s just so hard to find decent sleep when you are resting your head in a new unfamiliar place – not just uncomfortable airplanes […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Though it seems like the most straightforward way that you could go about travel booking – hotel comparisons and planning itineraries and tours might be even trickier – there are some flight booking secrets you should know. These could make it cost YOU more but not other people.
If you want to feel like you’ve travelled the world in three days without actually buying an airplane ticket, then I’ve got news for you. Try hitting up the world’s leading trade show and your sinuses will tingle from all the impressions. A ITB Berlin visit has it all in one place.
This post contains affiliate links. To be honest, travelling by yourself and getting decent photos with you in them while doing so can be such a pain. (Just as having to take photos of yourself “as proof” even if you are on a long streak of “I can’t be bothered to look decent and just […]
