As a solo traveller, your travel rucksack is more or less your only companion. It’s been beside (or behind haha lol, sorry) you through all the hustling, road confusion, food crawl, couchsurfing, beach bumming, and mountain climbing. Friends come and go, but your backpack remains. And, well, who needs friends when you have the best outdoor backpack, amirite?
Through my years of backpacking, I’ve tried many a-backpacks. Today, I’d like to share with you the best backpacking backpacks for any occasion: for versatility, as a carry on, for a day trip, for hiking, for when you’re too tired to carry your backpack on your back and want a travel backpack with wheels, for wet water-heavy adventures, for when you want an overall lightweight backpack, and the best travel backpack for women. Let’s get packing, mofo’s!
I’m such a fan of yoga for boosting the mind-body balance and helping me achieve way more in life, that I hardly know where to start describing my experience and continuing journey. One place I do know where to begin is with my yoga teacher training in India, where a whole new world of knowledge, understanding and compassion opened up to me. I learned to spread my wings in a way that has altered my outlook on the world and has changed me forever.
Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in Southeast Asia, and there’s a reason for that. There’s so much to see and do, from the historical architecture to the temples, beaches, countryside, exciting nightlife, and, of course, the amazing vegan scene. There’s no doubt about it, the capital city of Thailand has all the answers for where to eat and what to see, and today I want to help you figure out where to stay in Bangkok.
Who hasn’t fallen prey of either totally over-packing and not wearing half of what they brought or, at the other end of the spectrum, feeling way too utilitarian and backpacker-ish for a fancy city break? I have definitely done both when preparing my packing list for Europe. But as a seasoned backpacker, I tend to fall in the latter category most of the time. That said, I do like to feel stylish when I’m city-hopping in trendy capitals. Do you think it’s possible to look sort of trendy-ish yet comfortable AND pack just in a carry-on luggage? I like to think so! I’ve done a fair bit of city-hopping these past years, and today I’d like to present you my tried-and-tested packing list for Europe. I’m a pretty neutral-shade type of gal, and in this specific case, it makes sense to pack that way, because everything will fit together. Hurray for keeping it simple! Here are my essential travel items.
Since I get asked this question on the regular, I thought of presenting you with a “best yoga retreats 2019 and 2020” roundup post. Places I have been either visiting or dreaming of visiting, things for all budgets, from luxury yoga retreats abroad to more affordable ones nearby. What I currently think is the best yoga retreat in the world. All-inclusive yoga retreats are a hot holiday trend and for a reason. What better way to slice right through a slump than to reconnect with nature and yourself at one of the best yoga vacations somewhere warm and sunny for a few weeks, while practising yoga and eating delicious healthy vegan food? None in my book. So without further ado, here are my recommendations for what I think the best yoga retreats 2019 and 2020 are.
Ask any hardcore traveller what destination left a deep imprint into their heart, and India has got to be one of the most mentioned countries. Rich of vibrant traditions, India can be experienced through its festivals, talking with the locals, and eating gastronomic feast next to the cows along bustling street. But as far as I’m concerned, one of the best ways to experience the country is through one of the numerous India Yoga Retreats.
Stop saying that Summer is over! Kids are finally back in school, beaches are at long last quiet, it’s time to plan a yoga holiday, friendos! I know many of you (including myself) often look towards South East Asia or South America for a retreat, but when the budget is tight and the time is short, there’s no need to go too far afield, as there are amazing options for a yoga retreat in Europe. And while some countries may seem more appropriate than others for a relaxing holiday because of their proximity to beaches or nature, I’ve found that there are fantastic options literally everywhere!
When it comes to popular tourist destinations of the world, Eastern European countries have never truly hit the world map. It’s difficult to understand the reason for this.
They’re often overlooked in favour of attractive western European destinations such as France and Greece.
But with gorgeous architecture, iconic sights, rich history and high cultures, they really shouldn’t be, besides the fact they’re cheaper to visit than their European competitors.
Here are five Eastern European destinations with a wealth of attractions worth checking out.
Any travel nomad and hardened adventure seeker will tell you that searching for any adventure involves a lot of risks, excitement, and discomfort, whether in hiking the tallest mountain in the world, exploring the Amazon Jungle or Kayaking on the Mississippi River.
