Hotels we love: Amare Marbella

•••
With Berlin's endless winter weather getting to me, a spring break to the Mediterranean is what I needed desperately - and Marbella, the small city right on Spain’s Sunshine Coast, was the perfect destination for just that! The towering mountains in the back create a special climate: the temperatures never drop below 10 degrees, and to live up to the name[...]

Introvert Travel Tools

•••
As an introvert I’m notoriously known for staying at home, not showing up for parties and passing the brunch invitation. Don’t get me wrong, I’m neither shy nor a very antisocial person. I just need a fairly high amount of quiet time to process the impressions I've had in a day. So after being out and about in the city, going on a tour, visiting a museum and[...]

Your Ultimate Venice Bucket List

•••
Venice has kind of always been on my bucket list, even though I don't actually have one. It's one of those cities I've always wanted to visit because it seems so otherworldly.

6 ways minimalism will improve your travel experience

•••
Approximately 5 years ago my packing and unpacking routine would look something like this: a couple of hours before I had to rush to the airport, I’d throw 20 kilos worth of clothes into my bag, 5 pairs of shoes, fancy clothes I hadn’t worn in years (but that I was sure to wear during my holiday), handbags, jewelry and lots of bits and pieces. I was always o[...]

•••
Denmark's capital is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. History chases modern art and the food scene is incredible, but also outside of the city you’ll find some gems to discover. Here are three day trips you can easily do from Copenhagen - and they are well worth your time, even if you're on a city trip to Copenhagen! Jægersborg Dyrehaven Just a [...]
