Iceland, the land of fairytales

Whoa, it’s so cool. Whoa, it’s so amazing. Whoa, it’s so magnificent. Incredible. Breathtaking. Unbelievable. I ran out of adjectives trying to describe the sights of Iceland. Sometimes when you travel, you become numb to the sights. Meh, another waterfall. I’ve seen plenty of those. But in Iceland, I was blown away every single day.…

How yoga ruined my life

How could yoga possibly change someone’s life? I know the whole yoga-practicing, green-juice-drinking, positive-attitude yoga hippie is such a stereotype, but somehow this practice, that usually starts as a new hobby, can slowly start affecting your diet, relationships and outlook on life. This is the story of how yoga allowed me to go from just…

From a crazy city to the blue city

The three day Sahara tour dropped us off at our hostel in Fez. We stayed in Hostel Funky Fes close to the medina. The Fez medina is the biggest one in the world. And it was crazy. It seemed like and endless maze. Donkeys were walking beside you, chicken and geese were being sold alive,…

Camels, tajine and sand everywhere

“Are there sand dunes in your country, too?” A Berber man named Sair asking me this made me feel like the luckiest person on Earth. All this man had ever seen was sand, sand and more sand. How could he possibly understand what the rest of the world looks like? It was humbling getting asked…

A day in magical Marrakech

When I found a one-way flight from Madrid to Marrakech for 40 €, I was super excited. As I was so close to Africa, I realized the opportunity to visit Morocco had come. But then I got scared. I had never been to Africa, let alone a Muslim country. Even though the name of this…

An avid learner and sharer of knowledge, Nico showed me around Madrid, all in one day. Couchsurfing saves you so much time…

Carpooling around Italy

Due to bad weather, I decided to cut my time in Slovenia short and switch the rain for some sunshine by carpooling to Italy. Ah, Italy. What an incredible feeling it was getting out of the car in Bologna to a warm summer’s evening and hearing the honking vespas, seeing the big hand gestures and…

Couchsurfing and road-tripping in Slovenia

After experiencing incredible hospitality in Croatia, I moved on to its northern neighbor, Slovenia, where I was met with just as much warmness from total strangers. I couchsurfed in Ljubljana with an amazing couple, who provided me with accommodation, food, interesting conversations and good laughs. They even invited me to a party, which was a…

Asanas in Istria

Yoga retreats are a convenient way to combine my two main interests: yoga and travel. They’re also a great way to meet like-minded people. And the food! It’s usually so tasty that you don’t only stretch your muscles but also your belly. Even though my travel style is quite budget orientated, I don’t mind paying…

The clear waters and friendly people of Croatia

I love Couchsurfing. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s the best way to travel. You can learn so much in such a short time just by spending time with a local. I love how I can go to a town I know nothing about and have someone tell me the best sights to see,…
