A Foodie’s Guide to Ubud.

I did not stay in Ubud for very long and only realized that it definitely hadn’t been long enough when it was too late. Ubud is quite wonderful and despite being very touristy I immediately liked its vibe and its restaurant scene. Honestly, I was not a big...

Solomoon in the Maldives.

Solomoon in the Maldives.

My trip to Maldives started with the idea of a solomoon (solo travel + honeymoon = solomoon!) and ended in the beginning of a heartbreak. The latter was totally unplanned; I don't go that far for a good story. "You think you have time."  Buddha The Maldives have long...

How to best spend an Airport Layover.

I spend a fair bit of time at airports. That is even due to the fact that I travel a lot but more because I hate being late or even just on time. I will rather spend useless hours sitting around than run the risk of being 5 minutes late. Sometimes to my detriment....

The Elephant’s guide to Koh Tao

Some people need to have seen it all, in order to make a recommendation. I do want to see it all, but till I get there I have no problem to say: Marrakech, Cape Town and Bangkok are awesome – go visit, now!
