Leave only footprints...eco-friendly luxury in Thailand.

•••
Thailand has no shortcomings of beautiful resorts and islands and after traveling here for countless times I have been lucky enough to have quite a few. But on my most recent trip, it was time to try something new and when Soneva Kiri on Koh Kood invited me to stay I couldn't say yes fast enough. Staying at Soneva Kiri in Koh Kood I make no secret of m[...]

Tips for Traveling with Anxiety

•••
Some people want to make us believe that travel is the cure to everything and can heal anything from a broken heart to mental issues. I don't believe that to be necessarily true and sometimes quite the opposite takes place. While travel is a big part of my life as a digital nomad, I have come to realize how hard it can be to deal with certain issues when I a[...]

Kandolhu, Maldives - Where a travel blogger goes on holiday

•••
It is no secret that I adore the Maldives. I know as a travel blogger this might be a little bit surprising because after all, the Maldives are not known for great adventures (unless of course, you count scuba diving!), culture or mingling with locals but rather for luxury and la dolce vita. I know I am fortunate that I have a job that brings me much adventu[...]

Underwater Adventures in the Maldives for Eco-Mermaids

•••
My first trip to the Maldives last year changed my life a little. Despite being in a relationship, I decided to go on a solomoon to one of the most romantic destinations in the world because I felt the need to just get away from things and clear my head. My only plan was to fall in love again with diving after finishing my divemaster training which had left [...]

Dhigali - Could this be the coolest Hotel in the Maldives?

•••
I have been incredibly lucky with my travels last year and even got the chance to return to one of my favorite holiday destinations: the Maldives. I know what some of you might think - what does a single girl do in such a romantic honeymoon destination? I used to agree with this sentiment until I realized - if I wait for the right guy to go places with, I mi[...]

Staying at Soneva - Eco-friendly Travel in the Maldives

•••
Green travel has become an absolute buzzword over the last couple of years and with good reason. By now we all have realized that everyone's actions matter when it comes to the environment and that doesn't or shouldn't stop when holiday time comes around. I think it was last year during my first trip to the Maldives when I realized what a huge problem the[...]

A Traveler's New Year's Resolutions for 2019

•••
I am not one for bucket lists or New Year's resolutions. This is not because I can't keep them but because they often seem quite insignificant on the grand scheme of things or the timing is just off for me. While I like the clean cut that comes by the year changing and find that it gives me an emotional clean slate somehow, why wait for January 1st to make n[...]

7 Reasons to put Crete on your Travelmap

•••
Who doesn't think of whitewashed houses and blue windows to the backdrop of the even bluer ocean when they think of Greece? So did I for the longest time until I actually took my first trip to Greece and visited Thessaloniki and Halkidiki. There was nothing blue and white about either yet I still loved them both. So when I started to plan my Greek return I j[...]

My best tips for flying - 20 years in economy class

•••
I always laugh at posts titled 'How to make economy class as comfortable as business' or such. We all know there is just no way to turn an economy flight into a business class experience regardless of how much nice lotion you use during a flight. But even I will admit that after almost 20 years of flying long distance - yes, I am that old! - I have learne[...]

Roadtrip through Uganda: Finding Gorillas, Chimps & Lions

•••
I don't have a bucket list when it comes to traveling. I don't even know why I don't; maybe I am scared that I can't tick everything off in one lifetime. Mind you, I have had the privilege to do many bucket list worthy things so far: see orangutans in the wild, have a huskie puppy named after me, and scuba dive in the Maldives. As you can tell the common d[...]
