A Road Trip through Tunisia

•••
Last summer, I spent two months interning in a software company in Tunisia. During my brief stay, I was surprised at the historical riches present in this country. Carthaginians, Romans and Byzantines have all passed through this land, leaving their mark behind, buried over and over by sand and wind. During a week long trip throughout the country, I also dis[...]

10 things I Learnt from Traveling on a Van

•••
On my trip to New Zealand earlier this year, I drove a camper van for the very first time. I drove it around both the wide open New Zealand countryside and through the cramped, hilly cities. It was fantastic, fun and scary at times. I learned a lot on this trip, both about operating a camper van and all the practical knowledge that comes with that, and about[...]

In Photos: A roadtrip through Sardinia

•••
I love Sardinia; I admire how a relatively small island can be so diverse. So wild and tame at the same time - a magical place, with endless beaches and dozy little villages, where old Italian men sell you tomatoes and the best espresso you ever tasted. And I love roadtrips. So it only makes sense, that the two combined work like pure magic for me and my[...]

7 picturesque Lighthouses in France That you MUST Add to your Bucket List

•••
If you asked me what I think is the most beautiful feeling in life, I would tell you that it is what I feel when I'm home. Personally, I have never experienced anything as heartwarming as that, and I think that if we were to put genuine love into words then "welcome home" would be probably the best option. That's why I love lighthouses, for the metaphor t[...]

The Travelettes Itinerary: One Week in North West England

•••
Rushing through the UK is easily done - tick London, Oxford and Edinburgh off your list, and you're good to head on to the next place. But the UK has so much more to offer than its bustling capital, historical university towns and picturesque castles. I recently explored the northwestern regions of England over a couple of weekends, and think that adding [...]

3 great day trips you can take from Jerusalem

•••
Few places in the world are as interesting as Jerusalem. Each year an increasing number of visitors flock to the city to learn more about its history, to pray in what is one of the most sacred cities in the world for the 3 biggest monotheistic faiths, and to unravel the mysteries of its multiple layers. This is a city of contrasts; churches, synagogues and m[...]

Hitting the road in Curacao

•••
In November, when Berlin had already been hit by the ruthless winter, I had the privilege of escaping to Curacao, a Dutch colonial island in the Caribbean. Part of it is exactly as you'd picture paradise: palm trees, exclusive resorts, and crystal blue waves. On the other hand - and this is the side to Curacao I appreciated a lot more because it was so unexp[...]
