A perfect family getaway weekend in Usedom

•••
It doesn't always have to be Thailand. Or Mexico. Or Portugal. Sometimes one only need look to one's own little country to find the perfect beach break. In our case, we tried Usedom, a small island in Northern Germany, right in the Baltic Sea. It's one of those things: everyone goes every year and often has done since they were kids. Especially once t[...]

Vila Vita Parc - The Hotel Paradise for Families in the Algarve

Ever since I've had a baby, people with kids often email/text/call me to find out one thing: where to travel with their kids. It should be a family friendly place, warm weather, not too far a flight. Well, here comes my top answer: Vila Vita Parc in the Algarve. Ever since I first visited the Algarve when my little guy was only 5 months old I have[...]

Nutella Crepes for Dinner: the Week I Spent on a Cruise Ship

•••
My first cruise... I have to admit I’ve always been a bit suspicious of cruises. I had prejudices and no shortage of them. I don’t know where it all came from - after all I loved watching The Love Boat as a kid, just like any of us who are old enough to remember. So what did I think cruises were? 1. Old folks. I thought the majority of people booki[...]

Travel in style: 3 Must-Have's for Fall

By mid-September I was all ready and set to launch into fall. Leaves falling, temperatures dropping, snuggling up in blankets outside my favorite cafes sipping tea, accessorizing with scarves and hats again - I love this time of year. This is also around the time when I usually plan a final summer trip to somewhere in Europe, knowing that countries like P[...]

Let me ask you this: if you were to design a suitcase, to what would you pay attention? I can only speak for myself, but I would want to create a piece that is light, but sturdy. Stylish but affordable[...]

Hotels we love: Cotton House, Barcelona

„My god, this place! “ was the single thought that kept popping into my mind for the whole of the 48 hours I spent here. Whoever ran this place clearly knew what they were doing. There was a single feeling that prevailed the entire time I was here. I felt… spoiled. Avocado with my eggs and bacon? No problem! Fresh raspberries and cream with my crepe? Por su [...]

Discovering Ko Phi Phi's best kept secret

•••
"Sometimes life is full of surprises" they say, and there is probably no time in life when this is more true than when traveling. I was on a two week stint through Thailand when I took the ferry from Ko Lanta to Ko Phi Phi, knowing I would be staying at the Zeavola Resort, a place I was invited to check out to review for you guys. Before going, I had a quick[...]
