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[...]

Visiting Vietnam - 10 things you might not know yet

•••
A few weeks ago I was one lucky Travelette to be invited to Northern Vietnam by Enchanting Travels and Vietnam Airlines. Traveling from buzzing Hanoi to the dreamy region of Sapa and lush Mai Chau our itinerary augured to be as diverse as this beautiful country itself and surely lived up to its promises. Never having visited before I was beyond excite[...]

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[...]

Why I fell in love with the Middle East and why you should too

•••
Finding my feet through all the hustle and bustle, the hypnotizing sound of the Arabic language singing in my ears, the smell of cardamom filling my nose from the streets. The sun laying on my skin like velvet. I remember why it was so easy to for me to fall in love with the Middle East the first time. 4 years living in Saudi Arabia and travelling [...]

The Great Wall of China- 3 spectacular hiking spots

•••
There’s an old Chinese Proverb that describes the Great Wall so perfectly. “Only those that have travelled the road know where the holes are deep”. I knew as soon as saw the Great Wall of China that I had sincerely underestimated its gritty beauty and vast size. It’s an easy thing to do when most of the photographs we see are merely snippets of reconst[...]

Why you should attend the World Nomad Games

•••
I don't quite know how and why I even applied but when I got invited to attend the World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan I was mainly confused, wondering what I had gotten myself into. I had never been to Central Asia and the only nomads I knew were of the digital kind. Yes, I am a traveler and adventurous at times but my adventures evolve around scuba diving, saf[...]

East meets east - Getting zen in Bali

•••
This July I had great plans to finally add two new countries to my personal map: I was going take my first trip to Tokyo followed by seeing my family in the Philippines. Alas, as it happens sometimes happens in life - you can plan all you want, things can still go wrong or in my case not work out at all. My travel plans fell through within a week to spare an[...]

5 Top Nepal Experiences for non-trekkers

•••
There are few other countries that scream adventure like Nepal does. Thanks to the Himalayas it is a country of superlatives and it shows in the activities people come here to do. Of course, on top of this list is a trip to Everest or Annapurna base camp - trekking is the name of the game. But just because it is called basecamp doesn't make it any less of a [...]

Exploring Sichuan - 10 reasons to travel the South-West of China

•••
A lot of peoples’ first thoughts towards China go to megacities like Hong Kong or Peking. They picture big crowds alit by the glimmer of neon, a buzzing economy, a faster and harder pace; Piles of concrete, big malls, tiny houses, colourful commercials, and… well chop sticks? And of course this is China, a vibrant place full of extremes and contestations[...]

Rooftops, markets & boats: My first time in Bangkok, Thailand

•••
Oh, Thailand. When this year started, I had no idea I would be able to meet you for the first time. A spontaneous invitation to stay in one of Bangkok's most glam hotels had it that I packed my bag for five days in Bangkok this spring. Once there, I was constantly trying to deal with an absolute overflow of endorphines and whatever falling in love instantly [...]
