Dhigali - Could this be the coolest Hotel in the Maldives?

•••
I have been incredibly lucky with my travels last year and even got the chance to return to one of my favorite holiday destinations: the Maldives. I know what some of you might think - what does a single girl do in such a romantic honeymoon destination? I used to agree with this sentiment until I realized - if I wait for the right guy to go places with, I mi[...]

San Andrés Island: Colombia’s Little Secret

•••
A little guide, for a little island... As my extended stay in Colombia edged towards a close, I found myself in the same position I had found myself in all too often; desperately trying to squeeze six months worth of activities into two hectic weeks. I had wanted to visit San Andrés Island ever since I’d first heard it mentioned over the clinking of cocktai[...]

Dear island life - 5 favorite memories

•••
There’s something wildly fascinating about islands and how they function. No matter how much closer we are growing through easier forms of transportation and the good old internet, there will always be a special vibe going on in those places - it surely does something to them, being so secluded. As I love discovering all those little traits, habits, faun[...]

10 things to do in Fuerteventura

•••
When I first read up on Fuerteventura to prepare my one-week surf trip with Sophie, I read about how the North is dominated by British tourists, while the South is in German hands. While I was happy that we were heading north – so I didn't have to hear my mother tongue while actually sunbathing on a Spanish island off the Moroccan coast – I was still skeptic[...]

A beginner's guide to La Paz, Mexico

•••
I recently found myself on the Baja Peninsula, in La Paz, Mexico with a few days to kill before a camping trip on nearby Isla Espiritu Santo. I was pleasantly surprised by this sleepy city by the sea, and after visiting Cabo San Lucas later in the trip, I decided La Paz was much more my speed! I found Cabo to be very Americanized, with lots of drunken Gringo[...]

5 awesome things to do in Mallorca

•••
There is so much more to Mallorca than drunk Germans and endless parties in the hedonistic resorts of El Arenal and Magaluf - at least, that’s what I’d been told. Nevertheless, this Spanish island in the Mediterranean was never a top priority on my list of holiday destinations, but after I got the chance to spend a short trip there recently I quickly reali[...]

The Top 10 Experiences in Scotland

If you would have told me that I am still in Glasgow today and with no intention to leave anytime soon when I moved here almost three years ago, I would have shaken my head in wild disbelief. And yet, Glasgow has managed to do, what Vienna, Berlin & Co couldn't do in the past - it made me want to stay. The city is a creative hotspot, with great universit[...]

5 Reasons to Visit Hawaii's Big Island

•••
When my mom suggested the Big Island of Hawaii to add to my itinerary, I brushed her off. "Mom, I know what I'm doing, there's nothing to see there!" But boy oh boy, was I wrong. Thank goodness I eventually decided to go because if I hadn't I would've missed so much. Although the Big Island of Hawaii is the least hyped in the tourist industry, with intense, [...]
