Little Known Facts About Paris

I am well aware that Paris travel articles are pretty much the least original thing a travel writer can publish. I have written quite a few myself, and in fact, I feel like there is very little left to say that hasn’t already been said when it comes to the City of Lights. But after […]

Exploring The Contrasts of Copenhagen

More than just a Nordic city within a keen interest in all things cycling, Copenhagen truly fits the bill in regards to hedonistic travel. Between the futuristic architecture, the carefree attitude, the world-class restaurants and the royal palaces that would make anyone green with envy, the Danish capital often tops the “Best Cities to Live […]

Moving To London: What You Need To Know

Posted on 03. Jan, 2014 by .

Moving to London was something I always wanted to do, ever since I was a little girl. The reasons why still remain unclear today, even after I accomplished that dream, but one thing is true: the full year I spent planning 10 months in London was the absolute worst year of my life for the […]

My visit in the region of Stuttgart was albeit very short, but immensely enjoyable. Christmas markets, bratwursts, gorgeous German architecture and tons of history awaited, and I was very excited. So excited, in fact, that I had completely forgot to read about my accommodation. Luckily, I wasn’t disappointed or badly surprised. Far from it. Waldhotel […]

One of the things I was adamant about my German Christmas markets tour last year was to set foot in a picturesque village — I didn’t really care where it was, just as long as it was historical, photogenic and delightful. I wanted the tourist postcard on a silver plate. I wanted the Disneyland of […]

The Many Different Christmas Markets of Berlin

Touring the Christmas Markets of Berlin is something worthy of any bucket list, not unlike touring the wineries of France or eating tapas in Spain. And while markets can be found all over the country, even in the smallest of villages, Berlin truly is the Christmas market capital of the world and simply cannot be surpassed […]

I always said that I must have been a princess in another life. While my budget doesn’t always allow for it, I’m a rather big fan of all things epicurean, like fine dining, quality wines, English haute couture and first-class plane tickets. It doesn’t come as a big surprise then that my friend Kirsten and I […]

A Grand Tour of the Isle of Skye

Being the Britophile that I am, needless to say exploring the depths of Scotland was always a dream of mine (whether or not Scotland actually belongs in Great Britain is a story for another time). So there I was, embarking on the Highland Fling, which is a 5-day tour of the main sights of Scotland. […]

One of my travel pet peeves (and I have many!) is having to use public transportation whenever I arrive/leave a city - there just isn’t anything fun about carrying a suitcase around in the metro. Locals hate it, travellers hate it - it’s a lose-lose situation. So whenever I have the opportunity, I try to […]

My Favorite Pubs in London

While helping a friend plan her London trip a few days ago (yes, I have become that go-to person in all things travel among my circle of friends. I guess it means I’m a good source of information?), I realized that I had yet to create a list of my favorite pubs in London, a […]

I’ve mentioned this before - there are few things in life I hate most than hot weather. I would much rather move to northern Europe than tropical islands given the option. Feeling the crisp air brush against my cheeks while I venture on yet another leisurely  stroll is one of my favorite things, ever, perhaps […]

Traveling obviously has a lot of benefits: discovering the world, annoying your Facebook friends with tons of wanderlust-inducing photos, carefree living, and unique experiences around the globe. Throw in a tan and foreign delicacies and you’re in for a treat. Yes, the traveling life is quite enjoyable indeed. But what about the other upsides? The […]

6 Tips for Booking All-Inclusive Package

Posted on 16. Jul, 2013 by .

While I’m by no means an expert on all-inclusive packages or holidays having only done this once, I wish I’d knew a little more about this type of vacation before I booked my trip in my I’m-exhausted-I-need-vitamin-D-and-free-cocktails frenzy. My vacation was amazing, mind you - but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t have been even better. […]

How To Spend 72 Hours In Oslo

While the countryside of Norway gathers far more attention than the actual capital, I, for one, find this highly unfair. Mind you - I absolutely loved the fjords, and it’s still today one of my favorite travel experiences. But I genuinely think that Oslo shouldn’t be left out, and shouldn’t be a simple transit stop.

Accommodation in London can be quite a puzzle to solve - between all the incredible locations and neighborhoods, luxury or budget opportunities and everything else, picking the right option can become quite the nightmare. Luckily, a new trend emerged on the market over the last few years: short-term vacation rentals. Live like a Londoner for […]
