How to see 7 Famous Fairy Tale Castles in Germany in Three Days (Part 1)

I don’t really have any memories of the fairy tale castles in Saxony. I only remembered the photos I so meticulously, almost religiously, glued into my photo albums years ago. I have always loved taking photos and telling the stories connected to them. But this time I no longer had to try and retract stories […]

My Austrian Alp Holiday with Snow and Shakespeare in Summer

I was in Austria and hiking the mountains under the cover of my trusty raincoat. You guessed right, it was raining during the first days of my press trip with Austria Tourism. I had managed to survive a cow gang grouping up on me and now there was no more (not so bad) trouble (except […]

Why You Need to Know about the Austrian Alps, Cows and Lots of Food

It was my first time in the Austrian Alps (I had only ever been to Salzburg before) and I had come here in on invitation from Austria Tourism and was particularly excited to see the Shakespeare in the Mountains rendition of Romeo and Juliet. Tragic love stories with the backdrop of giant mountain tops and […]

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 […]

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 […]

This Is Why Luxembourg is Unexpected - Of Castles, Stars and Brad Pitt

This Is Why Luxembourg is Unexpected – Of Castles, Stars and Brad Pitt

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 […]

Get the Most out of Your Three Week Trip to Australia

When I decided to head for the continent that was furthest south except for Antarctica, I took a quick look at the world map and decided I would travel everywhere and quickly hop over to Japan from there. It all looked so close. Only when I was standing underneath a giant floating globe that indicated […]

Get the Most out of Three Days in Malmö, Sweden

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 […]
