One Year of Travel - 2016 Recap

One Year of Travel in Videos – 2016 Recap || Part 2

Can there ever be enough travel in one year? I didn’t use to think so but travel fatigue is a serious thing (travel burnout even more so). So that’s why I started slowing down in 2016, but still incorporated many trips into my months. If you haven’t seen it yet, start with the first part […]

One Year of Travel - 2016 Recap

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 […]

Where to Experience a Very London Christmas

Where to Experience a Very London Christmas

No other city does Christmas quite like London. To be fair, I haven’t been to New York City for Christmas yet (and if you have, drop me a comment to let me know what it’s like). Still, London has definitely mastered the holiday look. You’ll find streets decked in lights, shop windows turned into festive […]

How to Have a Classic Day Trip to Stratford-upon-Avon

How to Have a Classic Day Trip to Stratford-upon-Avon

This post came to be thanks to sponsored services. I woke up in darkness, not really sure of the time, but it must be 9 am because that’s what I had set my alarm to. Still drowsy from sleep, but rapidly giddy with excitement, I draw the heavy curtains to the side and peek out […]

Your Perfect London Weekend Stay for a Girl’s Getaway with SACO

Your Perfect London Weekend Stay for a Girl’s Getaway with SACO

This post was sponsored. I was in London again, a city that never let’s me go, no matter how far away I am or how often I return. This time, however, I wasn’t alone. Together with my blogger friend Alice from kick-ass Teacake Travels we prepped ourselves to take the travel trade show WTM by […]

Getting around the Cotswolds – Where Food Sports and Folk Lore Meet

Getting around the Cotswolds – Where Food Sports and Folk Lore Meet

[This tour was provided to me free of charge.] I felt cheated – I had been lead to believe that one of my favourite films, The Holiday, was actually filmed in the Cotswolds. Ever since Cameron Diaz tried to get comfortable within the tiny walls of her little stone cottage, I had wanted to visit. […]

When Travels Go Wrong – You May Freak Out Now

Great, a gate in my face. And it was locked. Of course. Just when I realised I had forgotten my railpass in my hotel, had to catch a train in 20 minutes and was at the other end of town without wifi and a sim card that would not charge me horrendous fees for calling […]

The England Literary Tour You Must Take this Year if you like Shakespeare, Jane Austen and the Brontë Sisters.

The England Literary Tour You Must Take this Year

This year is epic! Reason #1: you still have time to tick off your dream bucketlist destination. And no excuses! (Read my tips for scoring affordable last minute trips or how to find the cheapest flights.) Reason #2: if you’re a literature nerd like me, you’ll celebrate the anniversary of Shakespeare, Jane Austen’s Emma and […]

Brexit and Travel - What Will Change for UK and EU Citizens?

Brexit & Travel – What Will Change for UK and EU Citizens?

So Britain is out. Not sure we can call it Great Britain much longer seeing the new probabilities of Scotland and Northern Ireland wanting to become independent now more than ever. Political impact aside, what does this mean for us travellers? Or more specifically, what does it mean for British travellers and expats? Brexit and […]

Bath & Hygiene or Lack thereof during the Time of Jane Austen and the Romans

The Shocking History of Bath Jane Austen Didn’t Tell

This post is sponsored. “So did I get that right, the men would relieve themselves right next to where people where eating?” I thought I must have misunderstood; this could not be the prim and proper uptight England that Jane Austen lived in, let alone the history of Bath, THE spa town of England. I […]

Your ultimate Shakespeare Trip in England

How to Have a Perfect Shakespeare Trip in England

This post is sponsored. Isn’t it glorious how in only the short time of ten minutes, your level of ignorance for the day can already reach a staggering height? Imagine it being a barometer measuring the day’s air pressure, mine surely was on the brink of overflowing. And so I just smiled and nodded and […]

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. Now here’s a little confession: I have never ever attended a carnival myself and I am from Germany, where we go crazy during […]

Where to find the best London Street Food

Where to Find the Best London Street Food

Wait, there are red cows? And Great Britain is threatening to dethrone France in the world of cheese? And there is plenty of great London street food to be found? It seems like my flight across the pond had not only cut short my days’ hours but also transported me into the future. I was […]

How to Survive Your Erasmus Exchange

How to Survive Your First Erasmus Exchange

This has nothing to do with my current adventures but might be of value to some of my readers who are students or have friends or relatives that are. I am talking studying abroad, or Erasmus exchange to be more precise. I am passionate about all things travel and a firm believer in it being […]

Let’s Have a Road Trip – England Itinerary

This post was sponsored. Did you know that for a while I lived in England. It was during my university exchange when I was a student in an obscure and unloved little place called Preston. If you’re wondering (and many people either do or are shocked and feel sorry for me), Preston is near Manchester […]
