One Year of Travel in Videos – 2016 Recap Part 1

One year of travel – what would that be like? The beauty of travel is that even when you are currently not abroad, you can still go back to that special place full of memories. I have now been travelling for two and a half years. This was mostly nonstop but last year was a […]

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? […]

Having safely landed on Swedish ground, I feel so much more energized and ready to bring this blog to a new level and supply you with much more inspiration and fun stories to read. And while I am trying to sit still at my new laptop space in my temporary new flat, I catch myself […]

Carnivals across the world you should know about - Spain

Carnivals across the World to Visit Next Year

Carnival, Mardi Gras, Fasching… carnivals across the World go by many names but the spectacular feasts of colour, excitement and a rush of endorphines surely dominates many a cultures’ plans for February.

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 […]

All-you-need-to-know Caribbean Cruise Tips for the Britannia

What a whirlwind adventure! One day I am still recuperating from the excessive Christmas feasts and the next thing I know is I am packing for my first cruise sharing my Caribbean Cruise Tips with you.

Where to go and what to see in Bryce Canyon National Park

Why You Should Not Be Missing Out on Bryce Canyon

This post was paid for. Hold on a second as I am fetching some candles for a very special upcoming birthday party. This August, the National Park Service of the USA turns 100! And what would America be without its amazing parks and dedicated people to help preserve nature, culture and heritage. So a big […]

What to expect on a cruise - lots of swimming and fun

How to Pack for Your First Cruise with P&O

This post was sponsored. I am interrupting the current schedule to bring to you a very special program. A big surprise program. It was very hard to keep quiet until now but I can finally announce my big secret.

Best San Diego Museums

Where to find the best Cultural Activities in San Diego

With 348 museums, San Diego is firmly positioned as the fourth museum city in the USA and thus it is not surprising to find many cultural activities in San Diego. Seeing this, I simply had to have a look and make my stay a very culture-centric one. Having a received a museum pass by the […]

Grand Canyon in all its glory

How not to Miss the Grand Canyon’s Spectacular Colours

This post was sponsored. I was at the Grand Canyon and had only 24 hours to explore its unreal beauty and what did I do? I laid down for five minutes and woke up half an hour before sunset – a must see at the Gran Canyon. I raced from bus to bus, asking each […]

San Bada Beach Resort Costa Rica

Best Beach, Beach Resort and Holiday Bliss in Costa Rica

As I confessed in an earlier post during my Costa Rica adventures, I adore forests and like to just get lost in them and enjoy the peace and quiet. Would you be surprised to find out that a study has actually found out that there is in fact a reason for some people preferring mountains […]

Chachagua Rainforest Hotel

In the Heart of Costa Rica with Chachagua Rainforest Hotel

Hidden in the lusciously green rainforest near La Fortuna you will find a little paradise within the paradise that is Costa Rica. I am talking about the quaint rainforest hotel Chachagua, which I had the pleasure of being invited to stay at for a few days. Getting there from town requires a shuttle or taxi […]

An Epic Costa Rica Trip into the Heart of its Forests

An Epic Costa Rica Trip into the Heart of its Forests

To be honest, I was pretty lost when it came to my Costa Rica trip planning. I had been busy exploring the USA with 10 cities in 30 days and getting around by yourself turned out to be a little bit tricky. I couldn’t just hop on an overland bus like I did in the […]

Ghost Tours in New Orleans

Seriously Spooked by Ghost Tours in New Orleans

This post was sponsored. I imagined standing right there. In the middle of the street, frozen in disbelief, cold from the shock from hearing what had transpired in this house. The house that had long been a goal of mine to visit – to see and be seen. A house that held the most lavish […]

How to Make the Most in Houston on a Budget and in Two Days

So, I was told Houston would be boring. Just a big city with no character. As always, such a bleak painting did not hold me back. There is always beauty to be found if you look close enough and I am a connoisseur of the sublime. With Houston, however, it turned out to not be […]

Travelling the USA by Bus – A Daring Adventure of 10 Cities in 30 Days

Do you know what I cannot stand about travel in the USA? The public transport. Or the lack thereof. New Zealand wasn’t a prime example either but at least it wasn’t so big. What is a solo traveller to do when leaving the driving licence at home but having driving experience that amounts to zero […]
