Travelling is among the most stressful things that I make myself go through – by choice, of course. I started writing this blogpost in Tel Aviv at the airport. My flight was delayed and I already knew that I had to spend the night in Brussels, before I would get another connection flight to Glasgow via London. And if that wasn’t already enough on my poor soul, my laptop’s battery was …

It doesn’t have to take hours on end to travel to a place that catapults you into a parallel universe. In fact, sometimes the most serene of all oases can be a short train ride away. And sometimes, just sometimes, it takes a mere 48 hours to calm down the buzz in your head.
When I stepped into the old farm-house of a stork farm in Groß Pankow, Brandenburg (the county that …

Hurray!! Summer is practically here and I can positively feel the sun calling my name and feel the sea breeze in my hair. Now is the time to get planning for those summer trips and see where your summer holidays will take you!
I, for one, cannot wait to get in the heat and forget about the trauma of winter (hey, I’m a summer baby!) so am now deviously planning some …

It’s a not just a little ironic that I am the one writing a post on exercising here. I’ve always had trouble keeping up with my exercise – if there ever was any – at home, let alone whilst traveling. But. And that’s a big but. Things have changed. From someone who is eating way too many burgers and no salad, who only ran when it was for the bus …

As we pulled up by the disused tractor next to the steep, red dirt driveway, which was definitely in the middle of nowhere, we exchanged looks with a slightly nervous gulp. Where the heck were we? And what was this place?
We had been on the road for about two hours in Portugal. We’d left Faro’s white heat and hit the road to head up the dusty Alentejo Coast that hugs …

The first time I took part in a yoga class, I was a teenager with a passion for speedy activities like Volleyball or athletics. One day our gym teacher invited an instructor to introduce us to this “new thing” called yoga, and new it surely was back then in my home country of Austria. Unfortunately, 15-year-old me wasn’t impressed by stretching her bottom to the sky in Downward Facing Dog …

When Yve stood up on a paddling board for the first time three years ago her knees wouldn’t stop shaking. Never had she tried a surf sport before and the movement of water under her feet was a weird feeling to get used to. The Nalani SUP Center at Müggelsee lake in Berlin had just bought their first boards and started teaching adventurers on how to do what the people …

When we travel, there is always an occasion for a drink and sometimes unhealthy delicious food. We’re on holiday after all, and need to try the country’s specialties! Trying the local food at hand and praising it to the locals is a great way to make new friends and getting to know the culture a bit better.  This is not a problem if you’re gone for a shorter period, but after a …

Envision this: You are gently awakened by the distant sound of waves, and the near sounds of birds chirping in the trees above you. You unzip your tent and step out into a tropical wonderland. After getting dressed and drinking a morning coconut, it’s time for yoga. After yoga you take  a quick swim in the ocean, grab some breakfast and then rush out to make it to hula-hooping class. …
