Portugal: the ultimate winter escape for families in December

•••
People, I have a secret. A true insider tip and an answer to a question my timeline is full off once the end of summer rolls around. The question is: What's an easy to get to place that is still warm in December? The answer is here, friends. It's Portugal. The Algarve is a lovely stretch of land in the South of Portugal that  will usually still get over 20 d[...]

Top tips for Lisbon with kids

•••
Lisbon and I have quite some history together and the better part of it evolves around me as a mother. It was here that I came when my son was only 4 months old. The place I chose to spend the first leg of winter in as by no means I was keen to spend it in Germany. At the time, this was in 2014, I had rented an apartment in Graca, walked around lots, took sh[...]

DONA - Lisbon's most beautiful boutique hotel

•••
When traveling, you sometimes find great places and other times, they find you. That's what happened late last year when a small, newly open apartment hotel in Lisbon's district of Graça got in touch to invite me to stay with them if I'd ever be in the neighbourhood.

Maybe it's because it's in Italy, which to me is one of those countries I just can't help but love. The food, the people, the culture - there just is nothing I don't like about it. Take all those things about Italy and add a humble mountain range (the Alps) t[...]

8 Exceedingly British Treats to Try in London

•••
As a Brit, I’m happy to admit that we are a nation of uninventive eaters. Besides the humble Yorkshire pudding, and adopting curry as our own, we have pretty much stayed off the world’s culinary map -and for good reason. Interestingly, we do have a lot of great restaurants and the food scene in London is amazing. But it revolves heavily around the food of ot[...]

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[...]
