Traveler’s Gift Guide Under 50 Euro

Posted on November 28, 2016

Our family has a secret santa tradition which I love. It makes life so much easier to only have to buy gifts for one person. Now faith usually has it that you draw the one person from the family that you have no idea for. As I was brainstorming the present I wanted to get for my beloved family member, I also all of a sudden had to think about what I would like. You see, if you have a traveler in the family, thinking of a good present can be hard.

Visit Geikie Gorge in Western Australia

Posted on November 15, 2016

Choosing amongst your favorite spots during your travels is like choosing between your kids. Every spot moved or didn’t move you in a certain way and is, therefore, special in their own wonderful way.

Geikie Gorge in Western Australia was definitely one of those places and is unlike any of the other spots down the Great Northern Highway. Where can you find this gorge? It is located in the northern tip of Australia. Right in the middle of the Kimberleys, where the Fitzroy river passes a little town called Fitzroy Crossing -go figure, right?-. In between the two big northern cities of Western Australia, Kununurra and Broome, on the paved highway that connects them. Unlike many of the national parks in northern Australia, you don’t need a four-wheel drive for this attraction. If you’re traveling around Australia in a van or a normal car, you can easily see this gorge as well! Of course is also reachable from the famous Great Gibb River Road, one of Australia’s most legendary four-wheel-drive roads. Continue Reading

Take A Microadventure to Dinant

Posted on November 7, 2016

When my Sunday afternoon plans fell through, I looked at one of my best mates and we decided to jump in the car and take a microadventure to Dinant.

The term microadventure was first invented/claimed by adventurer Alastair Humphreys and can be defined as a “short, simple, local, cheap adventure”. It means that you can jump in the car or on the train and you don’t have to spend half a fortune on a plane ticket across the world. For me, these micro adventures are a way of life. There is nothing I love to do more than to inject a little bit of adventure into daily life. That is certainly the reason I love traveling so much. Every day is an adventure! Continue Reading

Will a Trip to the Northern Territory, Australia, kill you?

Posted on October 27, 2016

The first thing an Australian told me upon arrival in my Darwin hostel was “Everything in the ocean is trying to kill you, you won’t make it longer than five minutes”. Welcome to the Northern Territory, where everything is trying to kill you and each other! This is the land where the animals and some of the people are all kinds of cray cray. Where crocodiles eat bull sharks and snakes eat crocodiles. Where kangaroos have relationships with pigs and where flies would take over the country if they had a bigger brain. Welcome to the Northern Territory! Continue Reading

6 Reasons to Pack a Hat on your next Trip

Posted on September 29, 2016

It’s often a practical question on whether to pack a hat on your next trip abroad. They are difficult to store, you might have to put them on your head during transit and do you even need it? I only started traveling with a hat (the lovely halfway through my last travels through South East Asia and Australia and was so happy to have it. So yes, I’m a big advocate of taking a hat with you and here is why Continue Reading
