13 things to love about Corfu

•••
I must admit Greece was not my first choice for places to visit this summer, but when I saw how many of my friends opted for Corfu, I simply had to find out what the fuss was all about and booked a ticket with Aegean Airlines. After a short and comfortable flight we were greeted with sunny skies, warm air and plenty of smiles to what would become one of my n[...]

A magical family escape in the mountains of Salzburger Land in Austria

•••
I have an undeniable love for Austria and the Alps. For the longest time I identified as a beach kind of gal but every single time I travel to the mountains I feel it - this sense of freedom and a certain closeness to nature. So now, when someone asks me if I prefer mountains or beach - I can't pick one over another, both are an absolute guarantor for a grea[...]

What I wish I had known before traveling to Japan

•••
I consider myself to be a seasoned traveler whom, apart from Antartica, has been to all continents numerous times and who doesn't usually shy away from a new country, even when it seems a bit daunting from the outside. Daunting is however a pretty good word to describe the way I've been feeling about Japan these 37 years and even though a part of me was eage[...]

Resorts we love: Club Med in Mauritius

•••
Before I became a mother I dreaded the thought of going on a club holiday, nothing was further from my mind. It was from my friend Caro who had a one-year-old that I first really learned about Club Med because she had tried one of their locations in France. I still remember how excited she was to stay there. About the activities, the staff and the (free of c[...]

Dubai's best hotel (probably)

•••
Every summer I take my son on a 3-4 week break somewhere we haven't been before and this year our choice fell on Mauritius. The flight there would have us stop over in Dubai and in a an effort to avoid being stuck at Dubai airport over night, I decided to treat him and I to a 3 day stint in Dubai. The decision wasn't easily made, after all it would be full o[...]

Lana - a slice of paradise in the heart of South Tyrol

•••
Gorgeous sunny weather, stunning nature, incredible food, luxurious hotels, friendly locals. I'd say these are the five pillars that any wonderful holiday is based on. Added bonus points for great wine and lots of things to do. South Tyrol is exactly that to me which is why I keep going back nearly every year. It's Europe at its best because it effortlessly [...]

Before recently traveling to Mauritius for the first time I always assumed it was just one of those incredibly beautiful island destinations that didn't really have much to offer apart from luxury hotels and some water activities. However, having spent 3 weeks on the island I had to quickly realise that I couldn't have been more wrong - there is so much to d[...]

I'm pretty sure that every blogpost I ever wrote about Thailand and Bangkok in particular was essentially just one big love fest. It's true that the most popular of destinations in Asia is simply always guaranteed to provide a good time, pretty much regardless of weather, company or budget. It's a bit like a Disneyland for adults with fun people, amazing foo[...]
