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. By some wonderful coincidence I was in fact going to be in Lisbon just 2 weeks later and was[...]

The Family Hotel in South Tyrol that everyone is talking about

•••
Had you asked me a few years ago whether I would one day be keen to travel to a family hotel, I would have probably reacted with disbelief. But then life happened and I became a mom and it's true what they say: when the kids are happy, the parents are happy! That's definitely true for me, so if I can provide my little guy with the holiday of a lifetime that [...]

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[...]

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[...]

The only 3 things you need to know about Bacalar- Mexico’s secret paradise

•••
When I first started planning my trip to Mexico here’s what I imagined. Enjoying the white beaches and washing down Modelos in Playa Del Carmen and Cancun. A quick break in a luxurious resort on the Riviera Maya (if I could get a good deal). Checking out some Mayan ruins in Tulum and finishing my trip in the notoriously dangerous Mexico City (just bec[...]

10 Airbnb's Around The World We're Lusting After

•••
Airbnb’s are the affordable homes away from home that we just can’t get enough of. It’s not only the fact they’re a fraction of the cost of other accommodation options either. There’s something distinctly welcoming and authentic about staying in a local's home - an intangible personal touch that mass produced chain hotels will simply never be able to match. [...]

Is El Raval Barcelona's coolest neighborhood?

•••
I was only 19 when I first went to Barcelona. And I didn't come as tourist. I arrived with just one suitcase and €270 cash in my pocket, ready to pay for my room in an apartment I would share with 4 other people from 4 different nations. That room was in a part of Barcelona called El Raval, making up one side of the infamous La Rambla, the Barrio Gotico's ug[...]

Seize Your Adventure with Fran Turauskis

•••
A few weeks ago, I contributed to an episode of my favourite travel podcast She Explores. The episode was all about female solo adventures and I shared my thoughts on hiking solo across Scotland and what being alone in the outdoors does to my mind and body. The episode featured many inspiring women, who sought the outdoors and adventure - one of them was Fra[...]
