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 […]
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? […]
The time is near! All around the world, cherry trees are opening their buds and making the world a little pinker but if you want a full on rose-tinted world, book a last minute flight (or one for next year) and head over to the land of the rising sun and the pink sakura. To […]
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.
“Wait, you are going to [insert country]? By yourself? Solo travel?? Ooooh, just be careful. Don’t get kidnapped, don’t leave the house at night and don’t look at people strange.” Jep, that is advice I got and you know what. I didn’t list to any of it. And you know what else? I am fine. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. I couldn’t believe that British cruise giant P&O had invited me over to the Caribbean on the Britannia, to […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
