12 Hours in Brighton - A day trip from London

•••
I fell in love with the seaside of southern England on a trip to Southampton earlier this year and when my partner planned our vegan foodie getaway to London this autumn, I knew I wanted to return to the coast for a brief stint. And what better city is there, to go to on a day trip from London, than Brighton! And so we booked our tickets, made a list of s[...]

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[...]

Top 10 Unique Experiences You Must Do in Jamaica

Many people travel to Jamaica to relax on the beach at a luxury resort, but after visiting four times I have experienced firsthand many of the unique experiences that are only available on this island and worth a day trip or excursion outside of the resort!

Club holidaying in Thailand - Do or Don't?

•••
As I am typing this I am sat on a plane back home, leaving a wondrous journey of 3 weeks through Thailand with my 4-year old son. And for the first time in these 4 years as a mother my trip was not unlike the trips I would go on before I had him. We rode on speed boats, minivans, tuk-tuks and songtaews, washed elephants in the mud, woke up to monkeys swingin[...]

A 3-day road trip in Austria from Vienna to Carinthia

•••
Every time I go home to Austria, I love discovering new parts of the country. The last time I visited, my brother and his wife suggested a road trip to Carinthia, the southernmost state of Austria - well-known for its clear lakes, tall mountains and lots of sunshine. Together with my partner, we made our way down south - but not without making several stops [...]

How to visit 12 Scottish islands in 2 weeks

•••
Earlier this year, I counted how many Scottish Islands I had visited since I moved here in 2013. I don't usually count countries, but I thought - to heck with it - and did it anyway. With 790 islands, some inhabited, but many just pure wilderness - there is no way to ever "see them all", and so the counting became about something different than just ticking [...]

Can adventure be a transformative experience?

•••
“Human life gains the greatest part of its richness from --- any experience of stepping outside the taken-for granted reality of everyday life, any openness to the mystery that surrounds us on all sides.” Sociologist Peter L. Berger (1970) In the beginning of 1900s German philosopher and sociologist Georg Simmel wrote in his essay "The Adventure" that adv[...]

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 [...]
