The 7 most epic Train Journeys in the World

•••
We love traveling by train. There is something so romantic and old-worldly about it, something that makes you want to put on a great dress and order a martini even if the bar car only offers luke-warm coffee (yes, looking at you, Deutsche Bahn!). For years I had to take a train to go to school as a teenager and still it hasn't deterred me from being absol[...]

5 Movies to Inspire your next Train Journey

•••
I love train journeys. Even if they can be long, tedious and not always comfortable, I think there is something so romantic and wonderfully old-school about taking a train. Whether you watch the world go by from a bench squished amongst people in a 3rd class compartment or from a comfy bed on a luxury train - something about making the journey part of the d[...]

A Journey on the Maharajas Express, India

•••
There are trips and there are trips. The latter are the kind you never ever forget. Like seeing orangutans in the wild in Borneo, my first Maldives live-aboard, and yeah, probably my first business class flight too. What can I say? I like adventure as much as I like luxury. With that sentiment, I was stoked to be invited to be part of the Great India Blog[...]

A magical train journey: Aboard the Tren de la Libertad in Ecuador

•••
I love train journeys, and when you visit a country that is so diverse and beautiful as Ecuador, a train journey is an absolute must-do. There are many historical train routes in Ecuador and you can take day trips as well as multiple-day train journeys to see the country change at minimum speed. I had the pleasure of fitting a day trip with the Liberty Train[...]

Undiscovered Japan: Taking the fast train to Hokuriku

•••
Mist shrouds the valleys the day we leave Tokyo for the countryside along the Hokuriku line. It seems appropriate that after days in the city of neon lights and chaos we should find ourselves in foggy temple gardens, tip-toeing between mossy paths and unflowering cherry blossom trees. While Tokyo holds its own magnetic charms, there seems to be a certain sil[...]

10 Essential Experiences in Ecuador

•••
With a total of twelve countries spread across the continent, spanning from the tropical Caribbean Sea to the rough ocean at the southernmost 'end of the world', loads of mountains, forests and deserts in-between, South America is an incredibly diverse place to visit, and choosing where to begin is hard. One of the continent's smallest and way too often over[...]

10 things to pack for an Interrail trip

•••
Next week I’m finally kicking off what will be the most exciting trip of 2015: Two weeks of Interrailing through Eastern Europe. Yaay! Exploring by day, sleeping on old trains by night. Pretty sure the romantic idea of ‘sleeping on trains’ will lose most of its glamour after just one night, but hey, a girl can dream. Packing for a trip like that most defi[...]

The Travelettes' Guide to St Peter Ording

•••
I have a confession to make. Even though I've traveled well over 50 countries and will usually always devote every bit of free time to go abroad and explore, I know next to nothing about the country I live and grew up in. That's a rightful shame because I know for a fact that Germany has a lot more to offer than just an awesome capital. It was only when I wa[...]
