    My favourite Manhattan hangouts

    Jul052013

    New York City is a city of 10 million people and 100 million things to do. You can never be bored here. I’ve been living here on and off since 2010 (more, lately, now that I am no longer completely nomadic). Every time I walk down the street, I get drawn into the orbit of some new place to eat or drink. After having explored a lot of the city (but not all of it – nobody can do that), Hostelworld asked me to share some of my favourite spots and I was more than happy to do so.

    How to pack for a hostel

    Jun072013

    Hostels are great for many reasons. One of these is price – they’re a lot cheaper than hotels. They don’t offer some of the perks a hotel offers though, so when packing for them you'll need to bring along a few more items and be mindful of how you pack them.

    Solo travel in a group…that works!

    May272013

    Are you really travelling solo when you take a group tour? Some people say no but I say yes. At least, now I do. Until last month, I was an independent solo traveller. And yes, I was a bit of a snob about it. I thought independent travel was much, much better than going in a group.

    Getting off the beaten track in Southeast Asia

    May242013

    In Southeast Asia, you’ll find a heavily trodden tourist trail with many things to do, places to see and parties to attend. Since the hippies first made their way through here in the 1970s, Southeast Asia has been a mecca for budget travellers and backpackers alike. With its warm weather, good food, gorgeous beaches, and relative cheapness, there’s a reason why the place has remained a travel mainstay for over 40 years.

    Istanbul - as seen by Instagram

    May102013

    I have ventured into Istanbul three times - wandered numerous back alleys of the historic old district of Sultanahmet, broached the enigmatic Bosphorus Strait to cross continental divides from Europe to Asia and back again, visited famous landmarks more than once - and have never tired of any view.

    Finding a job on the Greek Islands – how to work and play there this summer

    May032013

    So you want to get wet and wild and experience the Greek Islands huh? Well – how about instead of a weeklong party fest you prolong that week of drunken carnage into an entire summer of orgasmic bliss and mistakes. I am talking about snagging one of the many jobs that the Greek Islands offers to would-be sinners for the summer.

    10 things a female traveller should never be without

    Apr232013

    On their home turf, girls can be rock solid. Shrugging off unwanted advances, fighting for the last Starbucks blueberry muffin (other muffin brands are available) and a no-pain, no-gain regime of plucking, epilating and scrubbing, the vast majority of girls certainly know how to look after themselves.
