The 7 most epic Train Journeys in the World

•••
We love traveling by train. There is something so romantic and old-worldly about it, something that makes you want to put on a great dress and order a martini even if the bar car only offers luke-warm coffee (yes, looking at you, Deutsche Bahn!). For years I had to take a train to go to school as a teenager and still it hasn't deterred me from being absol[...]

Hitchhiking sailboats: the easy way to try your hand at sailing!

•••
How many times have you dreamed about sailing… and thought it wasn’t for you? I know I’m lucky to have been a sailor since a young age.

Women on the Trail: Hiking Fjällräven Classic Sweden

•••
Nervously, I shoulder my backpack and carry it across the campsite. Doesn't feel too bad - I've carried heavier things before! Just never for this long... After a few steps I stop, standing before my judge - the scale hanging off a tree, ready to tell me the awful truth. I take off my backpack and set it to the ground - big mistake. I struggle to lift it hig[...]

Survive like a Girl: The Ultimate Jungle Experience in Bolivia

The two most popular ways to explore the Bolivian jungle are "the pampas tours" - where you travel on a boat along the river, watch wildlife, and then sleep in cabins with facilities - and "the jungle tours" - where you walk in the jungle, but also stay in comfortable lodges. But there’s one more option – going wild! And that's exactly what I did a few month[...]

10 awesome experiences around the world

7 Reasons to take a trip with Scubaspa

•••
I am kneeling on the sand and around me is just darkness and the light of some flickering torches. It is quiet except for the sound of my own breathing. I know I mustn't hold my breath, but it's hard because I am not only surrounded by 20 other divers but also by 20 nurse sharks and a few stingrays. They seem to like us and are just as curious, coming close[...]

5 Reasons why Laos should be your next adventure destination

•••
Laos, the landlocked neighbor to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar, and China is undoubtedly one of the most underrated destinations in SouthEast Asia. Many people flock to the beaches in Thailand, the ancient structures of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, and eat their way through Vietnam without ever stepping foot in Laos. Those who do make it to Laos typ[...]

You can’t visit Beijing without making a stop at the Great Wall of China. One of the Wonders of the World, the Wall is over 13,000 miles long and 2000 years old.
