5 Travel Disasters that Happened to Me (and How I Dealt with Them!)

Travel is all fun and games until you lose all your money and end up sleeping on the street surrounded by the neighbourhood cats (yes this happened to me). From losing your passport to sleeping through your train stop, if you are travelling for longer than two weeks then you are bound to run into…

Month Seven of Travel

My sister described this feature on my blog as 'the monthly update I do every couple of months' but with each month becoming even more chaotic than the last it has become increasingly difficult to sit down and write! My last monthly update was written in Greece and since then I have travelled through five…

Some (emotional!) Thoughts on Leaving Germany

  When I begun planning this trip late last year with my boyfriend, I came up with this crazy itinerary that took us through six continents and had us traipsing through at least 30-40 countries. We were going to start in South-East Asia and move through China into Europe. From Europe we were going to…

My Top Five Favourite Cities

As of right now, I don't have a place to call my home. Yeah, I have the house where my parents live and the tiny island of Mauritius where I grew up. I even have the city that claimed me during my university years but none of these places are really my home and after…

The Ten Worst Travel Photos I Have Taken

One of my favourite things to laugh at is people taking photos that I just know are going to be horrendous and/or boring. I even had the grand idea of starting a website dedicated to pictures of people taking super boring photos. Seeing as I primarily use my iPhone to take all my pictures, I…

It’s Been a Challenge (or why I haven’t been blogging)

Let's get real around here! This last month has been really, really hard and I haven't had the best time here in Greece. It is approaching eight months since I left home and it has been five weeks since I last wrote a blog post. This marks the longest time I have gone without writing…

Peek Inside My Packing: Makeup and Toiletries

My last post was a peek inside all the clothes, shoes, gear and accessories that I am taking on my two-month trip to Greece. This post is dedicated to my toiletries and make-up. So maybe if you are a guy, then pass this one by. I take three bags of toiletries with me when I…

Peek Inside My Packing: Clothes, Shoes and Gear

With my departure date for two months in Greece looming, my teensy 45L Kathmandu backpack comes out of its dusty storage place to mock me with it’s inadequate size. Too big to check-in, too small to house my ever increasing belongings: it is the perfect size to encourage bag-sitting and zip-straining (this is why I…

Month Four (and a half) of Travel

What a blissful month! I can honestly say that this has been the best month in a long time. I have made so many wonderful new, life-long friends. We have laughed, we have cried and we have spent too many hours lolling around in the sunshine. It is officially summer here in Germany and it…
