A Backpacker Meets 5* Resort Luxury: What I Learnt Staying At Shangri-La Mactan

•••
I’m a do-er. A jam-everything-in-so-I-don’t-get-FOMO kind of traveller. Someone who would choose a sketchy night bus to combine travelling with a (poor) night’s accommodation – and, because I haven’t learnt yet, immediately follow it with a day of intense sightseeing. There’s a few downsides to this kind of travelling though. The most obvious being an[...]

Hotels we love: Breathing Nordic air in Smucke Steed

•••
One of my long-term travel resolutions this year has been to reduce the amount of flights I take and explore my surroundings a little better. I wanted to get to know Germany's lesser known hideaways a little better and felt that two decades of escaping to faraway places left me clueless as to where a good old weekend on the countryside can be spent. Now Smuc[...]

Hotels we love - Shangri-La Villingili in the Maldives

•••
From the moment I first set foot on Villingili island I was in heaven. Someone handing me a coconut decorated with a frangipani flower was proof of that, in my book. I was taken directly to my villa, no annoying waiting around the reception, just holiday bliss from the first minute. It had secretly been my dream for a long time to experience the famed bliss [...]

3 weeks, 8 Maldives islands and one favorite

•••
Three weeks in the Maldives was enough info to make any jaw drop, especially once I told people that I would not only visit one but eight different islands. The next question on everybody's mind always was which one was my favorite so naturally I weighed the pros and cons at every new resort to evaluate just what was my favorite place of the bunch. And that [...]

Hotels We Love: Inselloft Norderney

•••
Like a lot of German 90s kids, I have a special relationship with the North Sea in Germany’s northwest. My family spent a beautiful summer holiday there, surrounded by baby seals, legendary tidal flats and tons of sandy shells that all made it home (to my mother’s dismay). The North Sea is known and loved for its fairly rough climate; it’s often windy, cold[...]

My Dream Alpine Retreat: Family Hotel Löwe in Serfaus, Austria

•••
In the two years since my little girl was born, I've travelled many times; but thinking about it nearly all of them had been to visit family or friends, or to go to events like weddings, and I was ready for a real family holiday, just the three of us. I have always loved the Tirolean Alps, and I have an enduring fascination with mountains, snow and crisp col[...]

La Vie En Rose: How a Trip to Monaco Changed my Life

•••
'Isn't there a song about this? I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses... who is it by?', one of the other bloggers asks. 'It's Bon Jovi', I reply without hesitation. 'Now that answer came a bit too fast.' And that's how quickly you share your guilty pleasures with almost strangers when you're stimulated by fragrant roses (and a bit of rose wine)... I wou[...]

Vila Monte - A hotel dream in white

•••
It had not been all too long since my last trip to the Algarve, only a bit over a year, but when the invite to visit Vila Monte, a new design hotel in Moncarapacho, 15 minutes from Faro, came around, I had to jump at the opportunity. Sun, sea and a beautiful new hotel is too much of a lure for me to just wave it off. Plus, Atlas and I got to bring our friend[...]

An insider tip in the Alps: Haus Hirt in Bad Gastein, Austria

•••
There are at least 2 excellent reasons for this blogpost which has been a long time coming because this trip actually dates back a few months at this stage (6, to be precise). However, I did not want to miss out on the opportunity to tell you all about it because this place, called Bad Gastein, is really something else. One. This is still a real insid[...]
