24 hours of Bavaria - Sleepless in South Germany

•••
I’ve got a confession for you today: I’m quite German. At least that’s what my passport says and my family told me. I’ve been asking for some multi-cultural stories from far away ancestors for a while now, but none of my folks could tell me any of those yet. I gotta face it: they might simply not exist. No crazy Mexican uncle, cooking me the worlds best taco[...]

Get out of the City: 5 Perfect Hong Kong Day Trips

•••
I love Hong Kong for so many reasons. From the food, to the markets, the wonderful people and colorful street life. But one of the very best things about Hong Kong is the ease of escaping. There are so many ways you can get out of the city. In less than an hour you can be wandering around fishing harbors, hiking along trails and swimming at clean beaches[...]

Why You Should Go on A Pilgrimage At Least Once In Your Life

•••
We started out at midnight, clad in giant raincoats and gaiters, headlamps securely sitting on our foreheads. Hundreds of little circles of light were bobbing through the night, building a steady chain starting from somewhere atop the first mountain and reaching towards the end point of our pilgrimage, 55 kilometers, 17 hours, and three more mountains away.

5 Ways the Lake District took me by Surprise

•••
My favorite trips are always the ones that take me by surprise. A weekend in the Lake District of North West England was one such trip. The Lake District had never really been on my radar. I had heard about it, of course - everyone from Cornwall to Aberdeen knows about the Lake District. It is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK. It's f[...]

Since the end of its 30-year civil war, it has staked its claim on many a traveler's bucket list - and with good reason. Sri Lanka boasts a wide range of activities sure to please every traveler but this paradisia[...]

Hitting the road in Curacao

•••
In November, when Berlin had already been hit by the ruthless winter, I had the privilege of escaping to Curacao, a Dutch colonial island in the Caribbean. Part of it is exactly as you'd picture paradise: palm trees, exclusive resorts, and crystal blue waves. On the other hand - and this is the side to Curacao I appreciated a lot more because it was so unexp[...]

How to squeeze a full hiking trip in the Alps into one weekend

•••
A lot of things in life don’t always go to plan and that’s the fun of it, usually. Two friends of mine and I had been planning a week-long hike in the Austrian Alps for months, we sent round pictures of preparations and details of the exact route in a dedicated WhatsApp group and couldn’t wait for that well-deserved break. Then both of them became ill, I [...]

7 Reasons to Visit Ronda, Spain

•••
Spain greeted us - in best fashion - with miles and miles of dusty copper mountains and a bright blue sky. I immediately fell in love with the small, rural town of Ronda as our train rolled into the station. And that was just the beginning. One short mile beyond the station was the place I had been dreaming about and furiously Pinterest-stalking for months o[...]

3 Off-Beat Hiking Destinations in Greece

•••
Most people when they think of Greece, they think of islands with amazing beaches, crystal clear water, white houses with blue shutters and cozy taverns that serve ouzo with mezes. You might also think of the archaeological sites and Athens. But did you know that mainland Greece is also an excellent hiking destination? The mainland consists mostly out of mou[...]
