Hello there! I'm a chaos traveller. Where I go, crazy things happen. Drowning in my goggles over the Great Barrier Reef, having a cruise ship sail away from me, swimming in a volcano. But I am still in one piece. And I've got crazy good travel tips for you despite (or because) of it. Join me for new adventures. Start here. #feetfollowheart

Why You Should Really Take Your Time with Travelling

When I landed in Korea, I decided to take my time with travelling and settle down for a week or so to get work done. To not travel. It was hard. It was like getting an instant rehab, sitting in dimly lit hostel rooms didn’t add to my mood, I turned grumpy and the workaholic […]

Famous Fairy Tale Castles in Germany - Dresden Zwinger

How to see 7 Famous Fairy Tale Castles in Germany in Three Days (Part 2)

This article is part two of my press trip through Saxony. Check out Part one here. Just a quick ride over in Dresden, I marvelled at the Zwinger. It is not exactly one of the castles in Germany, more a giant outdoor dance hall, but is grand nonetheless. It was destroyed in WWII but like […]

How to see 7 Famous Fairy Tale Castles in Germany in Three Days (Part 1)

I don’t really have any memories of the fairy tale castles in Saxony. I only remembered the photos I so meticulously, almost religiously, glued into my photo albums years ago. I have always loved taking photos and telling the stories connected to them. But this time I no longer had to try and retract stories […]

How to Not Feel Awkward When Eating Alone

How to Not Feel Awkward When Eating Alone

When you visit Japan, you will be surprised by the number of people. And most of them seem to spend their days walking in their own little bubble. Riding the subway with closed eyes, walking over crossroads without looking left or right when the traffic lights turn red for cars and eating alone at sushi […]

How to Please Foodies in Japan

Well, this one is easy! Foodies in Japan will find themselves in paradise no matter where they go. Why do I make such bold claims? Because I’ve been there and even though I am a very picky foodie, I hardly found foods in Japan I hated. In fact, what I found was all delectable. Just […]

My Austrian Alp Holiday with Snow and Shakespeare in Summer

I was in Austria and hiking the mountains under the cover of my trusty raincoat. You guessed right, it was raining during the first days of my press trip with Austria Tourism. I had managed to survive a cow gang grouping up on me and now there was no more (not so bad) trouble (except […]

Why You Need to Know about the Austrian Alps, Cows and Lots of Food

It was my first time in the Austrian Alps (I had only ever been to Salzburg before) and I had come here in on invitation from Austria Tourism and was particularly excited to see the Shakespeare in the Mountains rendition of Romeo and Juliet. Tragic love stories with the backdrop of giant mountain tops and […]

Behind the Travel Scenes – Monthly Round up July

So when even my friends send me facebook messages asking where I am at the moment, I knew I had to slow down. Nah, who am I kidding? I at least had to make it more obvious where my travel plans had and would lead me. It’s true that I am constantly on the go. […]

The Tribe Locations in Wellington – A Fan Girl’s Dream Kept Alive

Here is another reason I simply HAVE to love Wellington: It is home to the bestest (and costume craziest) TV series, which happens to be my favourite and which also happens to be unknown to every person I have met so far. Never mind, I had fun hunting down all the The Tribe locations in […]

Awesome Souvenirs from around the World Worth Buying

It’s no secret that I am no fan of souvenirs. Not the typical suspects anyway. Give me a typical food item over a key ring any day as a souvenir from your trip. Buy me something silly yet useful, like a mafia apron from Sicily or a Cadbury chocolate from England instead of little attraction […]
