10 trips to do before you get married

•••
I feel like the title of this post needs a little bit of explaining. Of course, I'm not saying that once you get married, the traveling stops. In fact, if you love travel as much as me, being able to travel with or without your partner after you get hitched should be a requisite to even say yes in the first place. Then again, maybe you're not the type who wa[...]

10 awesome things to make your city trip a success

•••
Early fall is here, and it's the perfect time to take a city trip. The sun isn't so hot, the storms aren't so intense, and the brilliance of autumn leaves creates a perfect backdrop for walking, sightseeing, bar/restaurant hopping, and generally drinking in the atmosphere of an urban landscape. Budget airline carriers have made city trips ever more accessibl[...]

10 documentaries to change how you see the world

•••
What I love about documentaries is that they open a window onto new people, places and cultures. Film makers can take you to locations that it might otherwise be difficult, if not impossible, to access.

10 awesome experiences around the world

•••
Anyone who loves to travel knows why we do it. We do it because we know that the only thing that matters in this life is making memories. We do it because you can't ever truly own material possessions, and you can't take them with you when you die; but a wonderful experience will stay with you forever, and nobody can steal it from you. The world is full o[...]

10 reasons to go to Brabant

•••
Had you asked me a week ago why anyone would want to travel to Brabant in the Netherlands, I would have probably replied that I knew next to nothing about it. So far, my awareness of the Netherlands did not stretch far beyond tulips, cheese and Amsterdam; it was only back in October of last year that I heard of Brabant Nacht from Vanessa, who wrote of her ex[...]

Not too long ago I published some of my top tips regarding traveling to the Maldives - and one of them was to do something special every day. There is so much to do in the Maldives, and all of it is fun, wonderful and magical. Perhaps you're currently preparing a trip to the Maldives; but if not, these incredible experiences will almost certainly fire up you[...]

10 Vegetarian dishes from around the world you NEED to try!

•••
It always surprises me that people think being a vegetarian would make travel harder. Truth is, it's something I rarely think about. I've traveled to around 60 countries in the world and have always found vegetarian food. True, sometimes there may only be one option (Mongolia I'm looking at you!), but in most other places there's a magnitude of foods to try [...]

•••
You've seen Mauerpark, Berghain and Brandenburger Tor, and now you're wondering what else is there to do in the exciting, vibrant city of Berlin. How about a guided tour? The German capital has a lot more to offer than the standard hop-on-and-off tours you were forced to do with your parents or on school trips. Here are some of my favorite Berlin city tou[...]
