La Vie En Rose: How a Trip to Monaco Changed my Life

•••
'Isn't there a song about this? I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses... who is it by?', one of the other bloggers asks. 'It's Bon Jovi', I reply without hesitation. 'Now that answer came a bit too fast.' And that's how quickly you share your guilty pleasures with almost strangers when you're stimulated by fragrant roses (and a bit of rose wine)... I[...]

Hotels We Love: Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge

•••
Have you ever been to Heaven on Earth? I have: Well, actually this is of course a much more tangible place than Heaven. This is the Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge in northern Tanzania. After trying and failing to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro last June my dad and I treated ourselves to a luxurious getaway close to Ngorongoro Crater nature reserve and Serengeti Na[...]

Our top 10 Travelette-y Glamping Destinations

•••
I love being outdoors, nature, hiking and everything that goes with it. Well all, except actual camping. I can manage for a night or two but I won't be very happy. There is something about sleeping in a tent on the floor or in a caravan that just makes me feel very uncomfortable and claustrophobic. Add to this having to walk through Hippo-infested areas in o[...]

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[...]

Six stunning castles we need to move in to right now

•••
Who's in for a girly sleepover in a castle? Wait, what? Yes, I'm serious. I've just spent two hours scrolling through pictures of castles that you can actually rent, some are more affordable than others of course. Villa Sola Cabiati (Italy) via Welcome to your personal fairytale right next to Lake Como! The private pool isn't even the best thing about t[...]

Hotels We Love: Mashpi Lodge, Ecuador

•••
It doesn't matter how stressed I am from travelling, from missed busses, delayed flights, lost luggage or inevitable language barriers, I know exactly where to go to calm down and relax for a few days: the forest. It could be any forest really, as long as there is plenty of green and I can hear the birds sing; but the rain forest in particular has an instant[...]

How to do a luxury English country weekend

•••
I’ve been treated to a few beautiful sights in my travels. Sunsets painting the sky with fire in Indonesia. A thundering waterfall oasis in Thailand. Vibrant underwater kingdoms in Honduras. But as much as these memories have touched my heart and as much as I know there is so much more to discover, sometimes I catch a glimpse of a sight here in England tha[...]

Hotels We Love: Hotel Grand Bretagne in Athens

•••
Walking into the Hotel Grand Bretagne is like walking into Buckingham Palace, or maybe, a Ferrero Rocher chocolate box. Everything is gilded in royalty. And gold. In other words, if you don’t actually backpack in heels, but in fact, God forbid sneakers, this is the place you feel a tad underdressed. “The hotel is a landmark, even if you cannot sta[...]

Japamala Resorts - Baby sharks in paradise

•••
A proper island getaway will require from you to put some work and effort into getting there: paddle on a raft if we believe Survivor, survive a plane crash according to Lost or take the night bus, a ferry, and a speedboat in my case. While I doze off at the ferry station, a side effect if the night bus is too punctual and arrives at 5 am, I can only hope my[...]

Hotels we love: Ekies - All Senses Resort, Halkidiki

•••
When I got invited to Greece in June I was most excited that we were planning a beach day in addition to exploring Thessaloniki. Crystal clear water that is bluer than blue, fresh seafood, and sunsets at their best. Luckily not only the Greek islands hold the promise of all of that, but also the peninsula Halkidiki which is an hour's drive from Thessaloniki.[...]
