Vale: The Four Letter Word You Need More Of

•••
It’s a dog, it’s a plane, it’s… Vale. Pronounced Bah-Lay, emphasis on the first syllable. We all need a little more “vale” in our lives, and I’ll tell you why. After a recent stop in the coastal city of A Coruña, Spain “vale” is my new favorite word. What does it mean? To be honest I have absolutely no idea. I first heard this four-letter nugget of a wo[...]

Hotels we love: Amare Marbella

With Berlin's endless winter weather getting to me, a spring break to the Mediterranean is what I needed desperately - and Marbella, the small city right on Spain’s Sunshine Coast, was the perfect destination for just that!

7 Reasons I was Miserable Walking the Camino de Santiago (But Why I'd Definitely Do It Again)

•••
In September 2016, I walked 126 miles in eight days. For as long as I'd lived in Spain, I'd heard people talking about the spiritual experiences they'd had while walking the Camino de Santiago.

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[...]

Hotels we love: Cotton House, Barcelona

„My god, this place! “ was the single thought that kept popping into my mind for the whole of the 48 hours I spent here. Whoever ran this place clearly knew what they were doing. There was a single feeling that prevailed the entire time I was here. I felt… spoiled. Avocado with my eggs and bacon? No problem! Fresh raspberries and cream with my crepe? Por su [...]

7 Reasons to Visit Ronda, Spain

•••
Spain greeted us - in best fashion - with miles and miles of dusty copper mountains and a bright blue sky. I immediately fell in love with the small, rural town of Ronda as our train rolled into the station. And that was just the beginning.
