Portugal: the ultimate winter escape for families in December

•••
People, I have a secret. A true insider tip and an answer to a question my timeline is full off once the end of summer rolls around. The question is: What's an easy to get to place that is still warm in December? The answer is here, friends. It's Portugal. The Algarve is a lovely stretch of land in the South of Portugal that  will usually still get over 20 d[...]

Top tips for Lisbon with kids

•••
Lisbon and I have quite some history together and the better part of it evolves around me as a mother. It was here that I came when my son was only 4 months old. The place I chose to spend the first leg of winter in as by no means I was keen to spend it in Germany. At the time, this was in 2014, I had rented an apartment in Graca, walked around lots, took sh[...]

DONA - Lisbon's most beautiful boutique hotel

•••
When traveling, you sometimes find great places and other times, they find you. That's what happened late last year when a small, newly open apartment hotel in Lisbon's district of Graça got in touch to invite me to stay with them if I'd ever be in the neighbourhood. By some wonderful coincidence I was in fact going to be in Lisbon just 2 weeks later and was[...]

•••
Had you asked me a few years ago whether I would one day be keen to travel to a family hotel, I would have probably reacted with disbelief. But then life happened and I became a mom and it's true what they say: when the kids are happy, the parents are happy! That's definitely true for me, so if I can provide my little guy with the holiday of a lifetime that [...]

The Travelettes Guide to experiencing Christmas in South Tyrol

•••
I've been to South Tyrol quite a few times and it's one of those places that just never disappoints. Maybe it's because it's in Italy, which to me is one of those countries I just can't help but love. The food, the people, the culture - there just is nothing I don't like about it. Take all those things about Italy and add a humble mountain range (the Alps) t[...]

It is that time of year again, a time to think about things to give not just to the people you love and value having in your life, it's also a good time to think about someone who should be of number one importance to you and that is: you!

Is El Raval Barcelona's coolest neighborhood?

•••
I was only 19 when I first went to Barcelona. And I didn't come as tourist. I arrived with just one suitcase and €270 cash in my pocket, ready to pay for my room in an apartment I would share with 4 other people from 4 different nations. That room was in a part of Barcelona called El Raval, making up one side of the infamous La Rambla, the Barrio Gotico's ug[...]

Top 10 tips for flying with small children

•••
Writing any sort of guideline for kids is always tricky business. Kids are no less unique and different in their ways as adults are and to pretend that one-size-fits-all type of stuff could really apply to each and every child is utter nonsense. What has however worked for me with my child was reading different opinions and various guides just like this one [...]
