Dear island life - 5 favorite memories

•••
There’s something wildly fascinating about islands and how they function. No matter how much closer we are growing through easier forms of transportation and the good old internet, there will always be a special vibe going on in those places - it surely does something to them, being so secluded. As I love discovering all those little traits, habits, faun[...]

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. No cars, no bikes, no trams and trains, none of these vehicles that dominate every other city with their fumes, sirens, honks and beeps. So when the time came and we started our road t[...]

Love Nature, Classical Music, and Serenity? Come to this festival!

•••
Fog hung heavy in the valley. I knew that mountains over 3000 meters high stretched towards the skies around me, but saw only misty clouds of white. I closed my eyes.

In Photos: A roadtrip through Sardinia

•••
I love Sardinia; I admire how a relatively small island can be so diverse. So wild and tame at the same time - a magical place, with endless beaches and dozy little villages, where old Italian men sell you tomatoes and the best espresso you ever tasted. And I love roadtrips. So it only makes sense, that the two combined work like pure magic for me and my[...]

How to escape the tourist crowds in Italy

•••
You may be surprised to learn that some people have a love-hate relationship with Italy. When I first traveled to Italy in my early 20s I found the tourist crowds suffocating, the traffic insane, the prices exorbitant and the noise intolerable. Twenty years later I returned, determined to find the beautiful Italy that so many people talk about. This time [...]

Beyond the valleys & the vineyards: Cycling in the Italian Alps

•••
Cycling holidays have become quite fashionable of late. I’m constantly seeing ads for cycling tours along the River Danube or through the hilltop villages of Provence. These tours sound quite idyllic - you get up at a respectable hour, enjoy a hearty breakfast, head out on your bike for a couple of hours meandering through little villages, have lunch, cycle [...]
