    17 days through Sri Lanka

    Even though Sri Lanka is “just an island”, there is so so much to see and do, that 2 or even 3 weeks are no where near enough to explore and do it all. But who says it was the first or only time to visit? 🙂 No matter how long you will stay on the magical island, I’m sure you will have a great time!   In this Sri Lanka travel guide I will share a way (the way I did it) how to travel around Sri Lanka in 2-3 weeks.     Day 1: Arrival, ride to Colombo city hostel, food shopping/cooking/getting to know fellow travelers Sightseeing: Nothing…

    Sri Lanka travel hacks & know hows

    While in my opinion Sri Lanka is a country you can just book a ticket, arrive, start travelling and have a good time even though you know nothing about the country, it is always great to have a basic idea of how life in that country works, what to expect as well as a few tips and travel hacks at your fingertips that will make travelling even easier and more joyful.   That’s why I decided to collect and share some of the most helpful things and tips that I picked up and realized throughout my journey:   Planning your route: I met many people along my journey that haven’t…

    surf, yoga & vegan resort in Sri Lanka

    Resorts and retreats become more and more popular. Not only in Asia (Thailand, Bali, Sri Lanka, India, …) they seem to be very in style, but also in Europe (Spain, Portugal, Italy,…) yoga, surf or ayurveda fans can find a happy place for their soul.   During my time in Sri Lanka I was lucky enough to attend such a retreat. Doing so at the end of my 17-days-of-travelling-Sri-Lanka, it has just been the perfect and best way to end my already incredible time on the beautiful island.   My amazing friend Sandra and her husband Jack found a great land in Sri Lanka during their travels and spontaneously decided…

    Cheap accommodations in Sri Lanka – spending less than 10€ per night

    When travelling, accomodations can add up quite fast, and are often one of the most expensive things throughout the whole trip. Even though I didn’t travel Sri Lanka on a tight budget, it’s always nice to save some money, right? 😉   I decided to spend all my nights in hostels. Not only are they one of the cheapest options around (unless you know someone and get to stay for free with them :)), but also will you be able to meet many, many amazing fellow travellers. Especially when travelling alone this is a win-win situation.   Following there is a list of some great hostels I had amazing times…

    Chicago Travel Guide

      My body being used to European time (most of the time), I often wake up in America quite early (usually around 3 or 4am). I don’t know what it is, but I love the feeling of being awake when the rest of the world still seems to be asleep (is it only me?) So when the sun starts to rise and shortly before people begin floating the streets like little ants; that’s when I tie into my sightseeing tour 🙂 Not only is the city wrapped in a majestic light and atmosphere, but also are the common tourist spots a lot less crowded! As I’ve mentioned in many previous…

    9 Places you’ll love visiting on your trip to Boston

      Boston… Wow! This city really surprised me in all ways. I seriously started to wonder why no one is talking crazy about it. It is such a beautiful and special city.     I guess what fascinated me so much is that even though it is a huge city with skyscrapers all over the place, so many people and lots of traffic; it somehow kept its very unique charm. Tiny streets, big history, incredibly friendly people, large parks and beautiful houses are just a few things from top of my head.   If you’re going to travel there, get excited 🙂   The 9 places I’m about to share…

    My top 6 travel tips

    These days I am lucky enough to travel on a regular basis and get around quite a lot. With this, a lot of packing and unpacking, destination research and planning comes along the way.   The first few times I was horrible lost – it took me hours and sometimes even days to fill up my suitcase to then empty it again. Every single time I had forgotten something. Eventually I wrote a packing list that I would go through each time.   When my things finally fit into one bag or one suitcase, it was time to sit down and come up with things to see, visit and do.…

    48 hours may not be a lot… But you can make the best out of it. Hongkong is a place with incredibly many things to do, and therefore many many ways to spend 48 hours. Today I am going to share one way to spend your time in Hongkong and some tips on the top attractions in Hongkong:   First of all: If you are planning on using public transportation I highly recommend you getting an Octopus card.

    2 choices in life

    The other day I came across a picture that really caught my attention. It got me thinking and wouldn’t let me stop pondering about its meaning. I really want to share this massive thought with you, as I believe that so many of us can truly benefit from this:   We ALWAYS have 2 choices in life   The comic showed two men trapped in deep holes. While one guy sat depressed, sad and truly unhappy about the current situation at the bottom of the hole, the other one was scraping soil off the walls building stairs into the high wall. The sentence underneath the photo went like this: “This is…
