Exploring the Hills of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Wales

•••
What do you do if you fancy a quick, cheap and little travel in the winter that will help you burn those calories and revitalise that tired winter skin? Well, it must involve a lot of walking, some stunning landscapes, cosy fires and perhaps a splash of red wine. Somewhere in the countryside with a car and great company is pretty much all you need if you fan[...]

The Vienna Woods: 5 Day Trips from Vienna

•••
Follow my blog with Bloglovin As you know I grew up in the western part of the fantastic city Vienna in Austria. Due to its infrastructure and cool vibe its standard of living is incredibly high. My by far favourite thing about the city is that whether I boarded the tram towards the centre or the outskirts, I would reach either in about 20 minutes. Therefor[...]

Western Germany by Bicycle

•••
Have you ever heard about the Germanic heroic poem The Song of the Nibelungs? It tells the story of a hero (Siegfried) who tricks a mighty queen into marrying his brother-in-law and successively gets entangled in a web of jealousy, backstabbing and revenge. But that's not what actually fascinated me about these stories. I was much more intrigued by Siegfried[...]

30 things to love about Denmark

•••
Even Shakespeare said it, something is rotten in the state of Denmark. In this case, rotten doesn't mean anything negative, just something different. Being unique is all about standing out, and Denmark does that in a very adorable way. The happiest country in the world has room for everyone no matter the nationality, color or the gender. However, the unexpec[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Camping

•••
As much as I love camping it is very much a rather contradictory topic.To me it really is no more than some romantic illusion mostly shaped by dubious Tumblr photos: a blond girl with long wavy hair wrapped in colorful shawls, her skin is sunkissed. She’s barefoot but a beaded anklet decorates her right foot. At twilight she sits silently by the bonfire, sur[...]

Sleeping in trees - Free Spirit Spheres

•••
When I close my eyes and memorize my childhood, I remember climbing up on trees, sitting in a cozy tree house, looking out for squirrels to visit my new home, being totally at one with nature. I often thought back of those happy days before stumbling across a special hotel on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. Finally my dream of a tree house could become true - [...]

Back To The Roots: Historical Scandinavian Life

•••
Hands up, who is not a loyal reader of the one or two Scandinavian design or architecture blogs? Nordic cultures are well-known for their incredible output in design: our apartments are furnished with inventive Swedish furniture, almost daily we wear Swedish, Danish, Norwegian or Finnish fashion (H&M, anyone?), the little and practical pieces in our l[...]

Iceland on a Budget with Hey Iceland

•••
In the last couple of years I have travelled many parts of Scandinavia, and these journeys have widely varied in occasion and budget. Especially during my time in Iceland, my curiosity for the island and my account balance were often in strong contrast. For my three week around-the-island-trip I had to think of something clever. Sleeping in the car was obvi[...]
