The Little Luxury Every Traveler Deserves

•••
Flowers and date night. Two of the (many) pillars on which my relationship stands. I feel so strongly about flowers, that I interrupted a perfectly great evening in the heart of Lisbon to stand in the middle of a plaza and argue about the simple significance of flowers, with my boyfriend Kris. While I don’t recommend my tactics, I don’t regret defending[...]

Hotels we love: The Arosea in South Tyrol

•••
We've all been there. Life gets hectic, time gets short, the to-do list keeps growing. As a business owner, single mom and city girl I know this all too well. Every once and so often things get especially tough and my whole body is aching for some time off. So when the opportunity rolled around to check out the Arosea Life Balance and Nature Hotel in South T[...]

Touring Transylvania: beyond spooky tales and gothic architecture

•••
Nestled in the peaks of Romania’s Southern Carpathian Mountains and in the Transylvanian region, is the city of Brasov in all its baroque, gothic and renaissance glory. Roaming through Sfatului Square, the towering Gothic Church and the instagramable Rope Street, believed to be one of the narrowest streets in Europe, should keep you entertained for a brie[...]

Bucharest: the Eastern European City for Creatives and Music Lovers

•••
Bucharest is a place of fascinating contrasts. Medieval churches and monasteries stand beside Art Nouveau phenomena. Monstrous 1930s’ concrete towers overshadow delicate French Baroque, and 21st century modernity sits somewhere awkwardly between it all. For me, the streets of Bucharest are like a feast for the eyes and a rather perplexing stimulus for the [...]

Toulouse: 72 hours in the pink city

•••
When choosing a city destination in France, it can sometimes be hard to see beyond the dazzling lights and bustling boulevards of gay Paris. The city of lovers, or so they say; although now perhaps just a tad oversaturated in the tourism department. For an alternative city experience, I cast aside convention and headed to the subdued southern city of Toulous[...]

Falling in Love with Contemporary Saint Petersburg

•••
Saint Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe; just a few hours by plane from many European cities, but underrated and still unknown to many. Russia’s beautiful northern city is home to magnificent palaces, golden rooftops, and an impressive history, but above all, a lively scene of young and thriving creative people. I loved St. Peters[...]

The Travelettes guide to Jordaan, Amsterdam

•••
Oh Amsterdam, how’d you get so beautiful? I ask myself this every morning. I’ve not always lived inner city, but oh boy, have I ended up in a good one. Just the other day I was walking down the canal side and overheard a man on his phone describing Amsterdam as ‘a mix of Venice and San Francisco’. Now, I’ve been to a lot of cities, but I[...]

City Girls vs. Nature: a dose of olde English charm in the Cotswolds

•••
The neurotic nature of England’s spring weather means Easter is often a washout - but not this year. While fishermen with bulging tackle boxes caught trains out to the coast, I hightailed it to the ‘burbs. I was joining Girls on Travel - a tour group that connects solo ladies on guided trips, and this one was out to the Cotswolds. Also known as the e[...]

Brighton's Most Spectacular Viewpoint

•••
Located on the bustling seafront, the British Airways i360 would perhaps look odd if it were anywhere other than ever-quirky Brighton, South East England. Perhaps the closest some of us might come to real-life UFO experience; the i360 tower is quite the spectacle towering 450 feet above the famous pebble beach, ensconced by a huge shiny doughnut and visi[...]
