City-tripping in Zurich: our slow travel wellness break

•••
When I think about a girls’ getaway weekend, Zürich in the middle of February doesn’t immediately come to mind. I live in central Berlin, where midwinter is a chilly monotony of grey skies and overcoats. My energy for work and self care starts to flag. What usually re-energizes me is novelty, or a touch of heat on my skin. To my delight, a weekend stay at th[...]

My weekend with friends at a mountain chalet

•••
Have you ever traveled with a group of friends? I have been fantasizing of renting a chalet in the mountains and bringing a bunch of my friends.

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[...]

This Travel-Themed Mall Takes Visitors on a Real Journey

•••
Asia's vast shopping malls have become somewhat iconic in the modern-day. From the dinky hidden plazas of Hong Kong to the sprawling luxury malls of Singapore. Maybe shopping isn't a top priority for you on a trip - but there are certain cities where I think you'd be missing out on a real slice of culture by not indulging. Bangkok has to be one of them.
