Knowing what technology to take on an overseas trip can sometimes be a bit of a confusing and intimidating affair. You may be someone who wants to take a break from the hum of the digital world on your trip so aren’t concerned about keeping in touch with emails and Instagram, but if you’re keen on staying plugged in whilst tripping around the world, sometimes the sheer choice of what …

I don’t know about you, but I’m all crazy about Iceland. The little insular state up north was my home for five months a couple of years ago, and ever since I’ve been dreaming of my return. Maybe this desire seems familiar to you, and maybe 2014 should be the year in which we make our dreams come true! Just recently I stumbled upon this post by my favourite Icelandic …

With autumn looming in the distance and limited time left of the summer’s sun, the great outdoors needs to be fully seized and enjoyed before it is too late! Road trips, camping trips, hikes, bike rides; all these things must be done before the miserable winter sets in and you regret your missed sunny opportunities.

When I was 10 my parents told me that we were going to go on holiday via airplane for the first time. I was the first in my class to ever ride an airplane, so this was big time news. Our destination: the Canary Islands, Gran Canaria to be exact. I couldn’t sleep for days ahead, my expectations were huge. And bound to be disappointed.

We stayed in a holiday home …

Spending a week in the Californian desert was certainly never on my bucket list and yet it belongs to every Cali – Las Vegas roadtrip. I’m more of a forest and mountains kinda girl and my heart was aching when we had to leave the green meadows of Yosemite National Park behind us. What we were to find was a seemingly neverending desert of orange, brown and purple stone and …

Are you ready to hear about more amazing places in South Africa besides Cape Town and Johannesburg?
You might not have heard of a small town called Jeffrey’s Bay before, but prepare yourself to fall in love with another South African city. This warning especially applies to people who love the beach, surfing and relaxing.

Scratch planes, trains, buses and bikes – when it comes to my favorite mode of transportation on a trip it’s a car. Not just any car of course, but the one that will be a steady companion throughout your journey. I am talking about: the road trip.
Many of my fondest travel memories include epic road trips through Italy, down the California Coast, from the Grand Canyon to Las Vegas and …

Road trip check-list: you have the vehicle, the maps, an enthusiastic travel companion and the perfect soundtrack. But what clothes should you pack?
Sure, you could solve this by settling for comfy tracksuits, but you don’t want to be caught wearing them on every photo from your trip (unless of course you are going for the full-on gangsta look: in this case add mad sneakers, heavy beats and a set of …

Imagine a tiny town in the high desert of far West Texas. A place that was once established as a water stop, named after a character from a novel, and that is now famous for art installations and mysterious ghost lights. Sounds intriguing? Welcome to the City of Marfa.

I first heard about this far away place when reading an article about the Prada store in Marfa. Yes, you heard right: …

I need to share a secret with you. Considering my age and my former attitude (talking childhood attitude here) towards the topic, I find it pretty embarrassing but I have to admit that I am obsessed with Baywatch.
