Don’t Miss these Outdoor Adventures in the Harz, Germany

This post was sponsored. I was supposed to jump down THERE? Half an hour ago I had been all cocky and thought it wasn’t so bad. But now that I was supposed to take the leap of faith during the first of my many outdoor adventures on this press trip, I couldn’t do it. I […]

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 […]

Fairytales thy reality are Luxembourg. And I had no idea. I actually had no expectations whatsoever. And to be even more embarrassingly honest, I sometimes get the location mixed up with Liechtenstein. Don’t judge me, I actually had many As in Geography at school (or does that make it even more embarrassing?). Never mind my […]

Why the Nature Reserve Rhoen Needs to Be On Your Radar

Why did I do this to myself? Getting up before dawn and going to bed only 4 hours earlier (that is at least 2 hours later than I had planned – why do I even plan?). I must have been mad. But then again, you don’t get to see the most amazing landscapes in the […]

The heart of Skåne, the playground of Swedish hipsters and a dreamland for foodies, that is Malmö to me.
