Vila Vita Parc - The Hotel Paradise for Families in the Algarve

•••
Ever since I've had a baby, people with kids often email/text/call me to find out one thing: where to travel with their kids. It should be a family friendly place, warm weather, not too far a flight. Well, here comes my top answer: Vila Vita Parc in the Algarve. Ever since I first visited the Algarve when my little guy was only 5 months old I have[...]

A Picture-Book Experience of Canada: Killarney Provincial Park

•••
Why do people come to this place?, I ask my captain during a boat cruise around the Georgian Bay, Ontario. I don't know – it's very peaceful here, but I guess they come for the scenery, he answers. And he is right, the scenery in this part of Canada is worth the five hour drive from Toronto. The little town of Killarney and Killarney Provincial Park are like[...]

Discovering Ko Phi Phi's best kept secret

•••
"Sometimes life is full of surprises" they say, and there is probably no time in life when this is more true than when traveling. I was on a two week stint through Thailand when I took the ferry from Ko Lanta to Ko Phi Phi, knowing I would be staying at the Zeavola Resort, a place I was invited to check out to review for you guys. Before going, I had a quick[...]

Costa Navarino - Greece's best family getaway?

•••
Ever since I became a mom, my travel behavior has changed a fair bit. Not at all in terms of frequency mind you, if anything I travel even more days out of the year now than I did before. However, the way I pick destinations, the duration of my stay, the things that matter to me most – all that is totally different now to what it used to be. Happy child[...]

A weekend in one of London's finest hotels

•••
It was the first day of 5 weeks full of travel for me and my 2-year old son Atlas. We were to go see 6 countries, visit 10 different hotels and in the end go on a cruise through the Mediterranean Sea. It was to be an epic holiday and this is where it all began. I couldn't have asked for a better beginning. London is a city close to my heart, it has be[...]

10 alternative things to do in Melbourne

•••
Melbourne is always on my mind, especially when life in the UK gets a bit tough. I recall the sunshine, the happy memories, the friends and the fun alternative things to do in Melbourne that don’t exist over here on this cold island, which is getting colder by the day after this recent referendum. With the fear of Brexit instilled in my tired British hear[...]

The Travelettes Guide to a weekend in Stellenbosch, South Africa

•••
You've probably heard by now that South Africa is one of those must-do's on everybody's to-do list, when it comes to amazing destinations. We love it for the weather, the people, the stunning nature, the food... the list really is endless. While all corners of the country have spectacular places to visit, it is no coincidence that most visitors flock to Cape[...]

An insider tip in the Alps: Haus Hirt in Bad Gastein, Austria

•••
There are at least 2 excellent reasons for this blogpost which has been a long time coming because this trip actually dates back a few months at this stage (6, to be precise). However, I did not want to miss out on the opportunity to tell you all about it because this place, called Bad Gastein, is really something else. One. This is still a real insid[...]

24 hours in Tallinn, Estonia

•••
Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is a small and quaint city that is stuffed full of brilliant restaurants, cafes, fashion and culture. If you haven't been to Estonia yet, you should seriously consider putting it on your hit list this year or at least duck into the capital's Old Town - even if you only have 24 hours in Tallinn. If you fly to the Baltic[...]

Hotels We Love: andel's Lodz, Poland

•••
What does a hotel need, to feature in our Hotels We Love series? Well, obviously something extraordinary; something that no other hotel has to the same extent; something that lets you forget that you stepped out of your comfort zone and knee-deep into a foreign culture; something unexpected that leaves you in awe. When Katja and I made our way to Lodz in Po[...]
