Yoga in Paradise: Pranamar Yoga Retreat

•••
The first time I took part in a yoga class, I was a teenager with a passion for speedy activities like Volleyball or athletics. One day our gym teacher invited an instructor to introduce us to this "new thing" called yoga, and new it surely was back then in my home country of Austria. Unfortunately, 15-year-old me wasn't impressed by stretching her bottom to[...]

Summer Getaway: the Swiss Engadin Valley

•••
It's already summer half-time (or is it early late end already?) and all I can think of is what kind of trips I'd like to squeeze into the remaining weeks of this always too short season. I'm thinking white sandy beaches on Greek islands, bustling seaside cities like Barcelona and endless party nights spent in romantic rooftop-bars in Istanbul. The invitatio[...]

Road trip favorite: Denmark

•••
Scratch planes, trains, buses and bikes - when it comes to my favorite mode of transportation on a trip it's a car. Not just any car of course, but the one that will be a steady companion throughout your journey. I am talking about: the road trip. Many of my fondest travel memories include epic road trips through Italy, down the California Coast, from the[...]

Oetz Valley, Austria - Vertigo is the way to go

•••
In my mind, Austria was all about Heidi, Yodeling and hot ski instructors. That being said, I had never been to Austria before  last month, when the Travelettes headed down to charming Innsbruck to attend the Travel Bloggers United conference, followed by a blog trip to Ötztal Valley in Tyrol.  After the chilled town of Innsbruck, we were all pretty stoked a[...]

The Essence of Sweden - Moose, Kayaks and Sleeping in Trees

•••
I have never been to Sweden, but nonetheless, I somehow grew up with this country. I read all of Astrid Lindgrens novels at least twice, went to IKEA with my parents on the regular, drank Fläder Saft and ate Kötbullar meat balls. I even had a Swedish Aupair. Childhood days are long gone, but the presence of Sweden in everyday life is still around. These days[...]

5 active summer holidays

•••
  Laying in the sun on a beautiful beach, hour after hour? What might sound like paradise to some people, to me is torture. Give me a surfboard, a pair of running shoes, a yoga mat and a bike and I will have the time of my life. This is why I never went on a classical package holiday, and I would probably bore my ass off, if I ever went. The advantag[...]

My powder snow paradise

•••
Dear travelettes, Ever since I moved from Norway to Berlin, I've found the winter a little bit more boring and a little harder to deal with, mainly due to the lack of mountains. When the leaves start falling off the trees is when I start daydreaming about snowboarding and cross-country skiing in my native winter wonderland. Ever since I was a little girl,[...]

Hiking in Norway

•••
Ever since I moved away from Norway I find there is something magical about returning to the fjords and the mountains. After spending time in the ”concrete jungle” or in small green spots in the city it is liberating to go walking for hours and get some fresh mountain-air. Sometimes you can also find a nice spot to take a (freezing) bath. When I go back t[...]
