A Bandana: the Travel And Fashion Accessory You Want To Have

Posted on April 7, 2016

Everything in your nomad’s wardrobe, or the clothing you travel with is preferably light and extremely versatile. Weighing in at about 10 grams and having more than 20 ways to wear and use it makes a bandana the travel and fashion accessory you want to have. Wearing a bandana gives me a major throwback to my teenage years but, as this accessory has a place in almost every decade, it is kinda perfect it is back fashion. With the major fashion bloggers, models and actors wearing them, there is plenty of inspiration around. I only recently picked one up in Nimbin, the Australian mecca for hippies and lovers of the green tobacco. What I truly love about this trend is that it is super versatile, very affordable at prices between 1 and 15 euro and that you can buy all the colors in the rainbow if you want to. Continue Reading

Great Road Trip Ideas

Posted on February 28, 2016

I’ve always had a deep love for road trips. Having traveled by land for most of my time in Australia, this affection for long hours of driving, listening to great tunes or podcasts for ever and not knowing where you will end up has only grown. Australia, however, is not the only country to do amazing an inspiring road trips. I’ve been longing for a long time to drive across America, eat my way through Italy or take a motorcycle through Vietnam and Laos. With so many places to go, here is a very incomplete list of European, Australian and South-East Asian road trip ideas for you: Continue Reading

Jervis Bay, Australia

Posted on February 2, 2016

Back when I was still in Belgium and only dreaming of far-away countries such as Australia, my friend, Tinne, was already wandering this magnificent world. Well to be honest, we weren’t friends yet, but that was about to change. While being ‘at work’, my eye often wandered to her travel blog (which is amazing) and this post about Jervis Bay caught my attention. I always thought I had to visit this beach and now, two years later, I finally had my chance. Continue Reading

How To Nail Your Airport Outfit

Posted on January 28, 2016

The airport outfit is often one of the most difficult outfits to nail and for me that is certainly the case. It needs to combine a whole lot of comfort with style. It will need to keep you warm and be pleasant to sit in for hours to come because you will most likely end up taking a nap. It is very tempting to grab your regular jogging pants out from under the bed and an oversized sweater. However, that’s not your only option. If you want to take your airport outfit to the next level, here are some tips that will make you nail your airport outfit. Not only are these tips useful for flights, they will be your best friend in overnight buses, boat trips or even an overnight camping trip next to the road. Continue Reading

My Australian Road Trip Soundtrack

Posted on January 11, 2016

When you’re driving around a country the size of Australia, which is bigger than Europe in its entirety, a well-curated road trip playlist is a vital part of your journey. Any memorable road trip stands or falls with unique locations, inspiring people and flawless entertainment. Having driven from Darwin down to Perth and from Perth all the way to Melbourne and back up to Brisbane, I’ve gotten to know a thing or two about what it takes to keep you going (we’re talking 4000+ km’s). You need tunes to wake you up in the morning, tunes to remember all those great moments and tunes to enjoy the sunsets you drive past. And when all else fails and you’re sick of those songs, you will need some good podcasts. Continue Reading
