Hotels we love - The Stones Hotel in Kuta, Bali

•••
Each year, for the past 14 years, I have treated myself to a very special birthday gift - a trip somewhere warm. If you're born in February, the coldest month of the year, like me, chances are you have not come to enjoy epic garden parties or picnics to celebrate your special day. At best you may have gathered the troups in some bar or hosted a dinner party,[...]

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 [...]

Escape to Sylt island for a girls' weekend away

•••
I seem to be discovering a new side to Germany every week at the moment and loving it! Last month, I headed to Norderney to eat and sleep and sauna; this time the guys from Airbnb invited me on a trip to get to know the island of Sylt through locals' eyes. We discovered a bunch of places that - along with the seaside air - immediately made my mind go wild an[...]

Top 5 Secluded Island Getaways

•••
Don't want to be the 100th person in your FB feed to post pics of your holiday to Miami or Bali? How does an endless horizon of crystal clear water and warm white sand between your toes sound? Why not do something a little different for your next getaway? Something off-the-beaten-path. Forego the stressful big city visits filled with touristy to-dos and the [...]

48 hours on Germany's largest island

•••
Where do you go when you live in the big smoke and find yourself a little overwhelmed by all the work and the deadlines that are piling up on your desk? In London, that place was Brighton. In Berlin, that place is the Baltic Sea. So last week when said deadlines were getting on top of me, I threw all books, magazines and electronics into my friend's car and [...]

The Travelettes Itinerary for Malaysia

•••
If you are thinking about backpacking in South East Asia, chances are that you will eventually pass by Malaysia. This country is definitely one of my favorites in the region; I fell in love with its wonderful landscapes and the kindness of its people. Less touristy than its neighbor Thailand and more affordable than close-by Singapore, Malaysia is the perfec[...]

That one night I was stuck on a lonely island

•••
Islands suck and the story I’m about to tell you is a bit ridiculous, mainly because I’m to blame for the drama. A couple of weekends ago I traveled to lake Chiemsee in Bavaria for a story on the love affair between islands, lakes and castles in the area. I thought it’d be a brilliant idea to convince the right people to let me stay in a small room that[...]

6 Things To Do in Santorini On a Budget

•••
The island of Santorini is popular among billionaires and celebrities, so it's no wonder that backpackers and budget travellers often choose to leave it out of their itineraries. But this fear is completely unfounded - the island may cater to a wealthy clientèle, but it also has plenty of hostels, affordable food and amazing pastimes for penniless travellers[...]

Finding Paradise on Caye Caulker

•••
As the taxi boat approached the island my sight was filled with palm trees, pastel-coloured houses and locals with dreadlocks; we had unmistakably arrived in the Caribbean. Instant happiness flooded my heart when I stepped ashore - this was what paradise must look like. A white sandy road lead from the pier towards the settlement. I started walking in my nor[...]
