An important message #bloggersforrefugees

•••
Many of you will have heard and read about the influx of war and political refugees Europe, and particularly Germany, have seen in the recent months and weeks. Berlin is among those cities who have had the most arrivals of people, often whole families with babies and small children, from countries like Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan. So many of them have arrived[...]

The 5 best Street Art neighborhoods in the world

•••
JR, Banksy, ROA - these names will ring a bell if you enjoy street art just as much as I do. I love traveling across the globe and seeing the work of these artists evolve from place to place, their art usually fitting exactly with the setting, always catching the public eye, telling them a story they weren’t always aware of, in the most creative way. So when[...]

Meeting people on the road - with an app

•••
Being on the road all by yourself feels amazing - at least most of the time. Unfortunately, there will come a moment though, when you suddenly realise that traveling alone also means, that you are, well, alone. Unless you stay in a 12-bed hostel dorm in a city frequented by the coolest backpackers out there, and especially when you are not the most outgoing [...]

This could be heaven - Return to Velassaru, Maldives

•••
It all started with my friend Caroline canceling last minute. We have known each other for 5 years, well enough for me to know that this might happen and when it did I was not all that suprised. Still – now I didn't have a girlfriend to join me on my girlfriend getaway! With just 2 weeks left I called up all my female friends, including those living in diffe[...]

Hotels We Love: Kata Rocks, Phuket

•••
For a while now, I've been fighting Phuket's corner. I lived there for nearly three months in 2012 and it featured heavily in the Southeast Asia leg of my RTW travels in 2011. It may not be idyllic Thailand and it certainly doesn't offer a break away from it all but it does have some great advantages. Here are some of them: 1. It's easy and relatively aff[...]

The ultimate Travelettes Packing List for India

•••
Before my recent 10-day trip to India there were a lot of questions to be asked. Why would you go there? Is it safe? Why are you taking that risk? - those were the questions my mum was asking. Which vaccinations should I get? How to avoid biting monkeys? What will I eat that is not too spicy? - that would be my best friend, who was going to join me. And fina[...]

10 travel essentials which you always forget to pack...

•••
I'm sure you know it all; that terrible feeling when you sit at the airport gate, suddenly a flash of stinging pain shoots through your brain and you realise, you left your hair brush next to your bed. Or your toothpaste in the bathroom. Or your phone charger attached to the plug behind your bed... Argh - again! Over the years I have developed some exit stra[...]

Hotels We Love: The Tongsai Bay on Ko Samui

•••
"Pardon me while I hang out in heaven for the next few days" was my first Instagram photo caption of The Tongsai Bay Resort. When the resort opened its white, pearly gates to me (okay, more like bamboo gates), I entered a world where a relaxing vacation lives in harmony with nature. Ko Samui’s first five star green hotel offered four tranquil days of excepti[...]
