The 7 most epic Train Journeys in the World

•••
We love traveling by train. There is something so romantic and old-worldly about it, something that makes you want to put on a great dress and order a martini even if the bar car only offers luke-warm coffee (yes, looking at you, Deutsche Bahn!). For years I had to take a train to go to school as a teenager and still it hasn't deterred me from being absol[...]

Top 10 things to do with kids in Bali

•••
As every year I knew well into 2017 that I was not going to spend the following winter in Germany. In fact, I haven't spent an entire winter in Europe for the past 13 years, why break with this tradition? Knowing I would be traveling with my 3-year old I opted for a place I had only been once many years ago but kept hearing wonderful things about: Bali. A[...]

It is, indeed, an excellent base for those looking for sunny weather and fast internet without sacrificing the lovely European charm. I’m lucky to [...]

10 great tips for backpacking Europe

•••
As much as my generation may have been defamed for being so obsessed with the social-media, and being termed everything from twit to ditz to social-media whores, it would be imprudent to overlook the plethora of benefits this very same social media offers, other than instant gratification of course! Another ingratiating vice which my generation has provid[...]

This luxury hotel in Singapore just created a paradise for kids

•••
When you hear the name Shangri-La, what do you think of? Maybe cosmopolitan charm? Luxurious design? World-class restaurants? I expected all these things but I certainly did not expect that my stay at one of Singapore's oldest hotels would catapult me straight into a future where one place could cater to business people and families alike, a place I would fe[...]
