Photo guide – A safari in Tanzania – Lake Manyara National Park

We headed out early that morning. It was a 3 to 4 hours’ drive to the entrance of Lake Manyara National Park and Nikki and I couldn’t wait to get there and start this 4-day adventure. It was her second safari but for me it was the first, and I can’t remember the last time… Read More

50 best things to do in Andalusia, Spain (Andalucia)

You might wanna get some popcorn, too. And a drink. Ready? Alright, the best things to do in Andalusia... I should probably start this post by talking about beaches and bull fights. Paella and flamenco dancers. Julio Iglesias and 75 year old German couples in matching outfits who want to get away from the cold of… Read More

UN DÍA EN… – The white villages of Málaga, Andalusia, Spain thumbnail

'¡Hola! ¿Sabe donde puedo comer algo por aquí? ' I asked the old man that was slowly making his way through the town of Cútar if he knew where I could find something to eat. It was way past noon, the sun was burning and the roads were steep, and I didn't manage to walk much faster… Read More

UN DIA EN… – Hiking the Caminito del Rey, Andalucía, Spain

!Hola! ?Qué tal? Yes, chicos and chicas, I just got back from enjoying la playa and the sun in Andalucía for 6 weeks! I’m not even gonna pretend I was there for anything else than fun and relaxing... But as long as I share the good times with you, I’m sure you don’t mind! Right… Read More

IN PHOTOS – Piva Canyon and Durmitor national park, Montenegro

Montenegro. In a country whose name literally means 'black mountain', the winding roads and endless views probably won't come as a surprise. But can you ever expect to find nature as stunning as THIS in a country you'd probably not even be able to locate without Google maps? With a capital whose name doesn't even ring a bell? Podgorica... Yep… Read More

VIDEO GUIDE: DISCOVERING THE NETHERLANDS – A last-minute weekend in Gelderland

I guess it happens to anyone who travels. Every birthday, Christmas or Valentines day you either get a new set of camping plates or quick-drying socks, or a gift voucher for some kind of travel experience. I had five of the latter and for once I decided not to wait for the expiration date to use… Read More

My ABC of the coolest things to do on a road trip in Montenegro

After almost a week of cruising through Bosnia and Herzegovina, it was new country time and we had decided to continue our road trip in Montenegro. It was cheaper to rent a different car in each country, so we dropped off our Bosnian car in Mostar and jumped on a bus to Herceg Novi, right across the… Read More

PRACTICAL GUIDE – The local tour to the sulphur mine of Kawah Ijen, Indonesia

It had happened almost by accident. I hardly ever watch TV but carelessly zapping around on that dark and grey Sunday afternoon, between cheesy television films and the guy with his way too white teeth selling the latest Ab King Pro on the shopping channel, suddenly something caught my eye. Kawah Ijen. It looked so surreal my finger… Read More

My ABC of the best things to do in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Road tripping has always been my favorite way of traveling. Maybe it's because there's nothing like that feeling of total freedom that you get when you turn the key and hit the road, the possibility to go wherever you want whenever you feel like it and to just stop every time you drive by an… Read More
