7 things to do in Nassfeld, Austria

•••
These past weeks, I've been feeling like a robot. The same routine every day: going to work, doing sports, writing university applications, eating, waiting for him to call and not sleeping enough. I'd been having  headaches on the daily and my motivation was on its very lowpoint. It was exactly the moment when a travelette knows just what she needs to do: GE[...]

5 reasons to go to Hemsedal, Norway

•••
When picking the right place to spend a ski holiday we are faced with a ton of options. It's a bit like picking a place with a nice beach - just sun and the ocean is not enough, we also want a great hotel, vibrant nightlife and ideally a couple of cultural options. With the ski holiday that is not much different. Finding snow and ski pistes is not the diffic[...]

Above the clouds - Mountain Panoramas of Switzerland

•••
"We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon" is what Konrad Adenauer once said. I am always amazed with the beautiful view above the clouds, be it while sitting on an airplane, climbing up a volcano or going on a ski trip. There is always a certain calmness, which makes you feel free and happy. As I have recently been on a ski [...]

Snow, Spa and Sanity in Adelboden, Switzerland

•••
Imagine you're on a road trip through Switzerland. It's constantly snowing (good) but the roads you're driving on are often slippery (bad). You're with a friend (good) but your GPS is playing tricks on you, you spend much longer on the (slippery) road than you are meant to and you're starving (bad). In your ideal case scenario you then arrive at a beautiful [...]

Rocking the Slope in Switzerland

•••
A couple of weeks ago, me and my friend Rabea went on a very special road trip. Through a country that is not exactly legendary for doing road trips in - Switzerland. We flew into Zurich and from there got a rental car which we drove to ski paradise Laax, then self-proclaimed city of lights Lucerne, then on to a small but wonderful place called Adelboden and[...]

Oetz Valley, Austria - Vertigo is the way to go

•••
In my mind, Austria was all about Heidi, Yodeling and hot ski instructors. That being said, I had never been to Austria before  last month, when the Travelettes headed down to charming Innsbruck to attend the Travel Bloggers United conference, followed by a blog trip to Ötztal Valley in Tyrol.  After the chilled town of Innsbruck, we were all pretty stoked a[...]

Where People Climb Mountains to See the Sun

•••
Berlin was cold, grey and rainy this morning when I had to get up early. Well, at least in my world it was early. 7 am. EARLY. 6 hours later I was in a different world. I've never been to Norway before. And I still don't know much about it. But I fell in love almost instantly. We drove through the countryside barely seeing any other car. Cesilie from Visi[...]

How to climb a volcano

•••
Usually, when on holiday, I like to fully dedicate my time to a cherished eat - sleep - surf routine, which, in the past, has been proving a great way to enjoy my time off. This time, however, my dear friend Minna dared me to break the cycle and get active. After a couple of days at the beach, she did some research on local stuff to do and eventually deci[...]

My powder snow paradise

•••
Dear travelettes, Ever since I moved from Norway to Berlin, I've found the winter a little bit more boring and a little harder to deal with, mainly due to the lack of mountains. When the leaves start falling off the trees is when I start daydreaming about snowboarding and cross-country skiing in my native winter wonderland. Ever since I was a little girl,[...]
