Five Amazing Day Hikes in Montenegro

Five years ago, when blogging was still a thing, I probably would have started this blog post lamenting about how I spent hours trying to find great hiking tips and trail recommendations for Montenegro. While it’s quite easy to research Montenegro’s beautiful coastline, Steffen (the husband) and I struggled a little finding suitable information on … Continue reading “Five Amazing Day Hikes in Montenegro”

New Travel Adventures: Photographing a Destination Wedding in Croatia

It’s funny how I thought travel photography was my calling when I started this blog over six years ago. As it turned out though: I’m actually a terrible travel photographer. Because I really don’t like shooting landscapes. When you look at my blog content from the last years, it’s easy to notice how I constantly … Continue reading “New Travel Adventures: Photographing a Destination Wedding in Croatia”

Your Iceland Road Trip: The Things You Really Need To Know

Even without having any immediate Iceland travel plans for the longest time, I had known the names of famous Icelandic waterfalls for years. It seems pretty impossible to go on social media these days without seeing a mysteriously foggy Iceland photo within the first three minutes. Thus I’ll spare you the “land of fire and … Continue reading “Your Iceland Road Trip: The Things You Really Need To Know”

Winter Impressions from Riga, Lativa

I’m summer girl through and through. At the same, I’ve been dreaming about spending New Year’s abroad (with Steffen) for the longest time now — but going on such a trip (at least within Europe) meant finally confronting myself with winter travel, something I had been putting off for years. Plane tickets were a little … Continue reading “Winter Impressions from Riga, Lativa”

Five Essential Things To Do in Venice

I really thought I understood Italian cities by now. After my week-long art history field trip to Rome back in 2006, which was my first visit to Italy as a grown-up, I had returned to Italy’s capital in 2014 for several days and then visited Florence last year. I can order food in basic Italian and … Continue reading “Five Essential Things To Do in Venice”

5 Things I Loved about Stuttgart

Stuttgart is not the kind of city that would appear on a Europe-in-20-days itinerary. It’s not exactly the prettiest city and it’s not really famous beyond the borders of Germany. But still, it might come up on the advanced traveler’s radar for two reasons: It has two airports that might be cheaper to fly into if … Continue reading “5 Things I Loved about Stuttgart”

Where To Drink Coffee in Hamburg

When I started traveling independently, I thought it was fun to have no plans whatsoever. I loved the romantic idea of an old car, a paper map and all the freedom in the world. I quickly learned that traveling with no plans at all is often a stupid idea — especially in Europe during peak … Continue reading “Where To Drink Coffee in Hamburg”

Paris in August via Instagram

There was a time when I was really into writing Instagram photo blog posts, but I haven’t been doing a lot of them lately as I felt like my images were becoming too repetitive — even though I’m still old-fashioned and take photos with both my dSLR (for the blog) and my phone (for Instagram) … Continue reading “Paris in August via Instagram”

London Stories in Black and White

I have always loved photography. My parents gave me my first little camera for my 12th birthday and I was so excited that I even told all my teachers about it. Very soon after that birthday, we spent a week in a cabin in the Jura mountains in Switzerland where I took photos of horses … Continue reading “London Stories in Black and White”

Love, It’s Complicated

I know this is a strange way to begin a travel-related blog post (especially when you have the real-life dating experience of a sandwich), but lately, I feel like a jealous ex-girlfriend. My first love and I have drifted apart. And I’m slightly heart-broken. A few years back, we were on the same page about … Continue reading “Love, It’s Complicated”
