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 …

Tremosine sul Garda. It’s beyond impossible to encapsulate the sheer beauty of this Italian getaway in words, or be able to really get across the crazy deliciousness of the local produce, but after spending a weekend in this mountainous commune beside Lake Garda in northern Italy, I swear I will try to do my damn best as it deserves recognition! Not only is the landscape so picturesque it felt like someone …

Lately, I have been telling you a lot about the unpredictability of the Scottish weather and how to get used to it. Ironically, I was proven wrong consecutive sunshine, but no way to enjoy it. Don’t get me wrong, I love playing outside in the sun – just I could not do that, all tangled up in end of term deadlines and library sessions. I could not wait to finish …

“I am sailing, I am sailing, home again ‘cross the sea. I am sailing, stormy waters, to be near you, to be free.” Accompanied by Rod Stewart’s voice our boat floats along the Spree. The sun is shining, Katja is behind the steering wheel and I turn the music up a little more before climbing up on the boat’s roof. Passing captains wave at us, every now and then we …

Florida is mostly associated with cities like Miami and Orlando, or major attractions like Disney World or Key West. The sunny state is the perfect spot for a beach vacation full of white sand, palm trees, and candy colored houses along the shoreline. But the Sunshine State has many other beautiful destinations worth exploring. How about visiting the United States’ oldest settlement? Or do you rather feel like going canoeing …

Do you ever stop and wonder how lucky you are? I don’t know you of course, but if you have a job that pays the bills, a roof over your head and a few friends who love you then that’s a pretty good start. Add the occasional holiday and maybe a few fun nights out on the town and you’re even better off.
Traveling, more than anything, reguarly reminds me of …

I’ll be honest, I didn’t even know what wakeboarding was when my friend first told me she was hooked on it. When we skyped a year or so ago, she on the balcony of her apartment in Kuala Lumpur (KL), and me freezing next to the radiator in my small London flat’s kitchen, she enthused about her new love for “wakey.” I nodded and lied convincingly, “I’d love to try …

I’m not much of a sports fan, but there aren’t a lot of water sports that I’m not intrigued by. Scuba-diving, jet ski, rafting – sign me up for any of those! Being from Berlin, none of these are really an option around here. Apart from swimming, the only water sports that are easy to come by are canoeing and kayaking. That is exactly why I got most exited when …
