Hey lovelies, How are you all today? I am currently planning real hard for my next trip to the States. The destinations are still a bit on… Read more “How to plan your next trip like a boss”
Ello my loves!
Today is finally the day where we can launch at the newest and most fab project that is currently out there! The #DGTravelbabes project !
At Dobe Globe we believe in being your true authentic self and by being just who you are, you can truly inspire others. We believe in empowering ourselves and others!
There is no room for jealousy, hate or any other negative thought and feelings. In the blogger world you often run in to others with the same mindset, the same passion, the same love for the thing that you love the most. In our case it is Traveling. All the ladies above are bitten by the wanderlust bug and we all wander the globe. In stead of seeing each other as competition we decided to bundle our awesomeness and create this project for YOU!
The #DGTravelbabes (Dobe Globe Travelbabes) will bring you weekly travel inspiration, travel tips, hotel reviews, product reviews and much more.
We might all have the same passion but we have our own personality, our own character and therefor we can bring you a very versatile article, every week!
We believe in creating a strong female travel community where we can share our love for traveling the globe and bond over a mutual love for the world and all of her beautiful places!
But first things first, let’s introduce our team. So far it is the magic five, but we are always looking for new talent, new incredible women who can join our team and spread the wander loving’ together with us!
All the bio’s down below are written by the #DGTravelbabes themselves so you can get a real personal introduction!
Hi, My name is Cigdem! Probably a difficult name for you to pronounce, haha. Try saying ‘Chi damn’ – Got it? Okay! Good 🙂
I am the creator and founder of Dobe Globe. I created Dobe Globe so we could have a platform where we could be awesome together. I love to travel and I want to see as much of our beautiful globe as I can. I have am Dutch girl with international roots from all over the globe and I lived for a long time between Europe and Asian and became a true ‘Eurasian’. Last year I moved back to Europe and I settled in Antwerp where I live with my pet (stuffed animal) cat. #foreveralone.
I am a travel journalist by heart and a professional photographer and I combine those two things at my website. I am a Asia Specialist and a little piece of my heart (or well, a big chunk) will always belong to Bali.
I am a luxury travel specialist and I love to do hotelreviews and take you with me along my journey through everything lush and luxurious !
You can follow my journey through my Instagram*!
I am madly passionate about inspiring people to go travel and to dare to live. To do what their heart beats for.”

Hello world! I am originally from Washington, DC, USA, and I am proud to say that I am a travel addict. I caught the travel bug in 2006 on my very first overseas trip to Italy. It was somewhere I had always dreamt about and it turned out to be better than I ever imagined! I became so fascinated with the lifestyle, the architecture, the history, and the people. It opened my eyes up to the world and I left wanting more. As soon as I returned home, I immediately started planning my trip back! I realised that there is so much more world and culture to experience than the small bubble I had been living in my whole life. A fire was ignited inside me and I became so passionate about seeing everything else this beautiful world has to offer. Since then, my life has been completely centered around traveling and I have been to 44 countries! !
I started a blog recently just to document and share my experiences. Even if no one ever reads it, it doesn’t matter because it will be like a diary that I can look back on one day to remember all these fascinating places I have been and the stories that came from them. I never anticipated it, but it has become like a creative outlet for me, a release that makes me really happy. It’s like my baby and I cannot wait to put more time into it and share so many more of my crazy adventures with everyone! If I can inspire just one person to finally get over their fears and start to travel, then I’ll die a happy girl. !
The name CrazyTravelista developed from several years of my friends and family calling me crazy every time I told them about yet another trip I had planned. Before I would go on that trip, I would plan the next trip so I would have something to look forward to when I got back. I sold my car, most of my expensive belongings, and have lived a more simple life the last few years. All so I could travel more. Crazy, huh? Maybe a little, but it’s my number one passion in life and I have never had anything make me feel more alive than when I’m traveling. !
I must say that I am extremely touched by how supportive and encouraging the female travel community has been throughout all this. It seems everyone is trying to help one another and it’s really empowering and inspiring to see females working together in such an unselfish way. I am very blessed to be apart of it. Hopefully we can inspire more girls to get out there and see the world for themselves! !
You can follow along on my adventures on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat at @crazytravelista and on my blog at www.crazytravelista.com. Happy traveling! !
So that is our lovely team. We will bring you the best travel articles, reviews, tips and tricks next year so buckle up, we are coming for you!
But for now, a merry xmas my loves and keep on traveling!
xoxo, team #DGTravelbabes
This post is for all my ladies out there. Yea you girl! I wrote this post specially for you because I want to inspire you. I want to trigger something inside you to do the thing that I love to do the most: TRAVEL!
If you have never solo traveled before but you want to see if it might be something for you too take these 5 steps and allow me to guide you through it!
1. TAKE A CITY SOLO TRIP FIRST
Before packing your backpack and traveling to the other side of the world, go out there and test the waters a bit. See if solo traveling is something for you. Pick a destination close to home so it will still feel same for you, jump on a plane and just go there. Start with just a long weekend and see how you feel. Of course you can not compare 3-5 days with 3-5 months but you will get a good feeling and vibe of the ‘traveling alone’ part. Based on that feeling you can decide if that is something you would like to pursue a bit more.
2. PICK YOUR ACCOMMODATION
When you are out there on the road you often don’t have the luxury of ‘planning’ everything in advance. For your first solo travel I will definitely recommend you to at least plan everything you can plan about this trip in advance. Your planning skills will be well tested while being out on the road so let’s see how you do this. When looking for an accommodation read online reviews. Not everyone has the luxury to stay in expensive hotels but there are really good and affordable hostels out there as well. The one that I have recently stayed in, The Generator in Dublin was amazing. They even only had an all female dorm room what creates a safer environment if you are a lady traveler out on your first solo travel. Chose an accommodation and just go for it!
3. MAKE A DAY PLANNING
Have you researched the city that you are going too? Do you know where to go to once you got there. Do you know what you want to do when you visit the city? Perhaps a museum or a shopping street. Get a map and a notebook and write down all the things you want to do and how to get there. If you are prepared you will feel more comfortable with your self and your solo traveling skills. Of course you do not have to do everything that you have on your schedule but it often helps when you have an idea on what you can do and how to go there.
4. WHEN THE SPONTANIOUSITY KICKS IN, SURRENDER TO IT!
Spontaniousity- is that even a word? I do not thinks so. Haha. But you get my point right. I recommended you to make a planning in pointer 3 because what I often notice when I talk to first time solo travelers is that they go to a destination and they don’t have a clue on what to actually do there and than the fear kicks in and they feel unsafe. If you have a planning and you know what you could do, it will give you some relieve. Often what you will have during solo traveling, is the pleasure of meeting random people. Be open to that and let things happen. If someone invites you to join for an event later say YES! Who know what kind of great experiences you will have and what kind of new people you will meet!
*Please always be careful though, when someone invites you to their home and you don’t know that person well, don’t do it. Always trust your gut and your instinct. But when it is at a public event, a cafe or a bar, do it! You will be pleasantly surprised.
5. WHEN SOMETHING DOES NOT FEEL RIGHT, DON’T DO IT
Always be safe. Solotraveling is fun, not scary. It will allow you to get to know your self in ways you never could when you just stay in your own save little environment back home. You will develop some serious James Bond’ish skills and you will learn how to take care of your self because you are the only person out there that takes care of you on your trips. Always trust your instincts and when something does not feel right, don’t do it.
If you follow these 5 steps I am sure you will have a great first impression on what solo traveling is and feels like. I am so curious on how you will experience your first solo experience. Have you ever solo traveled before? How was that for you?
