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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Adventure, where could I find you?
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 […]
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 […]
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 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. If you didn’t know, it is the third biggest city in Sweden, the capital of its southernmost province and just a channel train ride away from Copenhagen. Should you extend your stay in Copenhagen to visit […]
Gosh, it’s been already a month since my second move to Sweden (temporarily) and you know what that means? It’s high time for a roundup! Yes, I’ll try and write up one for each month to give you a little peek behind the scenes of the life of a travel blogger. But trust me, it’s […]
If you want to feel like you’ve travelled the world in three days without actually buying an airplane ticket, then I’ve got news for you. Try hitting up the world’s leading trade show and your sinuses will tingle from all the impressions. A ITB Berlin visit has it all in one place.
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 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 […]
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 […]
So you’ve heard about German Christmas markets and wonder what all the fuss is about. There probably is some sort of Christmas festivity going on in your town so why should you add yet another item to your ever growing bucketlist? Let me tell you why: because Christmas markets are the best way to get […]
