How to Master Your Outdoor Adventure Packing Skills (+ Packing Ideas)

If you are anything like I was before I started on my world trips, then packing is quite the overwhelming activity – especially when you are going on an outdoor adventure. At first you think you can handle it all right, you still have weeks to go and anyway all these people who start asking […]

The Pony Express in Nevada - Are You brave Enough?

The Pony Express Nevada – Are You brave Enough?

This post was paid for. Here’s a question for you: Where in the USA is the loneliest road according to Time Life Magazine (and that for the 30th year)? And what held the USA together in the 19th century when west and east were still pretty much divided by huge areas of mountains and deserts? […]

Visit Thuringia in Winter - A German Winter Wonderland

What to Do when You Visit Thuringia in Winter?

Where I am from you ask? Well, central Germany, Thuringia. Never heard of it? Then you’ve probably heard of Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt and maybe Cologne? Brilliant! It is nowhere near those. So to answer the question, I have to tell you a little story, but I promise you’ll like it. And you’ll want to visit […]

One highlight for travellers around the Caribbean islands is to explore Antigua's natural beauty

How to See the Most of the Caribbean Islands

It was a rainy Sunday afternoon and my eyes were illuminated by the bright light of the screen. Or was their shine due to my excitement over booking a string of flights to discover countries I hadn’t been to before? Then, suddenly the clouds burst and my mood fell. I wouldn’t be able to make […]

Active in the Bohemian Forest – Bikes, Boats and Best Ofs

I had done it again; gotten terribly lost. That is not an uncommon thing for me but being left behind in the Bohemian Forest and not sure which path to take after my group left or a scheduled ferry transfer did not create the best feeling in the world. Getting Lost in the Woods This […]

Hiking El Dorado Right at Home –
Let’s Explore Jena in Germany

Welcome to Thuringia, my home state. You know what that meant for me as a kid? Music class taught us traditional German hiking songs, school outings meant hiking around the mountains of our town and singing the songs we learnt. This, my dear people, is horror to me. I hate singing in public and I […]

UNESCO World Heritage Site – that says it all, right? So come on over here and visit the age old shrines and temple, take a picture of the famous three monkeys and be able to say you have seen 9 National Treasures of Japan and 94 Important Cultural Properties all in one place. That sounds […]

Your Must Try Seoul Hikes in Three Day Trips

Seoul has a lot to offer but every now and then I have this fierce craving of heading out into the woods. I want to be far away from the hustle and bustle of the restless city life, away from neon lights and traffic jams, no subways or buses to carry you but your own […]

Sad Recap of My Ending Australian Adventures

It is done. The time has come to say goodbye. Australia has been my home for 7 months and now it will no longer be. I must say I am slightly sad but at the same time way too excited to have a heart break. That is the thing with travellers, they always seek novelty […]

Hiking Australia’s Blue Mountains with Colourful Trips

This post was sponsored. I still remember the artistic device that is often utilised when depicting fading landscapes, mountains in particular. The colours are becoming more faint and taking on blue hues. Our teacher called this ‘blueing of the landscape’. The famous blue mountains near Sydney have coincidentally named according to such a phenomenon and […]

Where to See the Famous Kangaroo Beach + lots of hiking and a VIDEO!

Where Is the Famous Kangaroo Beach?
Nullarbor Traveller Day 7 + 8

This post was sponsored. Since we received favouring tailwinds, we made it to Cape LeGrand National Park by afternoon on my tour with Nullarbor Traveller. Arriving after dark is not unusual and so we were indeed lucky and seized the beautiful day to relax on the beach. Donning our best beach wear we walked out […]

The Place Australians Don't Want You to Know About

The Magical Place Australians Don’t Want You to Know About

This post was sponsored. I absolutely cannot believe it. I saw my very first, very much wild echidna! It was just sitting there by the road. Unfortunately we couldn’t stop my sponsored trip with Bunyip Tours bus but I saw it and now I’ll tell the world! The last time I had the chance to […]

Once in a Life Time – Rain at the Uluru with Groovy Grape Tours

This post was sponsored. The weather gods were not in our favour. Since yesternight they had the clouds roll in, rage storms and the occasional downpour on our heads. Accordingly, we had to shift our plans and instead of hiking around Uluru, we focused on Kata Tjuta instead. It was rather uncomfortable walking around in […]
