The heart of South Tyrol

•••
I have probably said this in the introduction of every other Italy post I've ever written but I'll say it again, because it's such a striking sensation - traveling here always feels like coming home. The moment I step off the plane, Italy gives me a friendly pad on my back, as if to say "Good to have you here, Katja." It makes me feel welcome with every cup [...]

Getting in Shape in Belek, Turkey

•••
Remember how I told you about the changes I’ve made to my exercising routine whilst traveling? (The secret is to actually start having one.) Well, this time I went to a trip specifically to exercise and to try as many new ways to tease my muscles as possible. And guess what? I came back feeling a hundred times more refreshed, active and centered than in any [...]

The Lefay Resort and Spa - a wellness weekend in Italy

•••
I often get asked by friends and people I meet what would be a nice location to travel to for just a few days, one that, ideally, is not too far away or expensive to get to. My answer is always the same - Italy! Great food, wonderful landscapes, friendly locals, charming architecture - what's not to love? No matter how many times I travel there it never ceas[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Edinburgh

•••
Having just moved to Glasgow two months ago the expectations for my upcoming trip to Edinburgh had been heightened by numerous reports of the city I got from my new friends. "Its architecture is so beautiful and it's so easy to navigate.", "The art festivals in summer are a great opportunity to plan a visit." or rather "There are tons of tourists around all [...]

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[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Tenerife

•••
When I was 10 my parents told me that we were going to go on holiday via airplane for the first time. I was the first in my class to ever ride an airplane, so this was big time news. Our destination: the Canary Islands, Gran Canaria to be exact. I couldn't sleep for days ahead, my expectations were huge. And bound to be disappointed. We stayed in a holi[...]

Return to paradise - the Four Seasons in Kuda Huraa, Maldives

•••
Do you ever stop and wonder how lucky you are? I don't know you of course, but if you have a job that pays the bills, a roof over your head and a few friends who love you then that's a pretty good start. Add the occasional holiday and maybe a few fun nights out on the town and you're even better off. Traveling, more than anything, reguarly reminds me of h[...]

5 great Spa and Wellness retreats in or around Berlin

•••
German sauna culture is a well-established tradition worth indulging in, especially through the city’s seasonal extremes. From swim-up cocktail bars in summer to the Die Thermen am Europa Center (which one sauna fiend and local called “the epicenter of 80s Westberlin sauna culture”) in winter, the area hosts some of the most innovative, restorative retreats [...]

Barceló Sancti Petri - An Andalusian Getaway

•••
Back a few years, during an Erasmus semester I spent in Barcelona, one of my big plans was to take all the money I had left after those 6 months, grab my suitcase and go traveling around Spain, with Andalusia as my main destination. That plan didn't really happen due to some unexpected robberies and too many cocktails in the Catalan capital. But second chanc[...]
