Karma Surf Retreat: Yoga & Surf Holidays in Portugal

Finally feeling sand under your feet again, getting a light sunburn on your nose and looking at the sea for hours. Is there anything nicer? I spent a week at Karma Surf Retreat in Figueira do Guincho. A week full of relaxation, sunsets, incredibly good food, wonderful people and breathtaking nature.


Holidays on the Moselle - A weekend in Cochem, Beilstein and Pomerania

There are places in Germany that I just like to travel to again and again. Last summer we explored the picturesque Moselle region on a small road trip. Due to time constraints, we didn't make it to Cochem and Beilstein back then, but we wanted to make up for the excursions this time. What particularly fascinates me about the Moselle region is the incomparable holiday atmosphere. Historic towns, romantic palaces and castles, well-known wineries and numerous colorful half-timbered houses that line the river landscape like pearls: A holiday on the Moselle is not only beautiful, but also diverse. This time our exploration tour went to the holiday region of Cochem.

The goat trail in Forbach: Hiking in the Black Forest

Hiking in the Black Forest: It's not always the exotic countries that can enchant you. If Corona has taught us anything, it is that it is definitely worth exploring your own environment. We live in Baden-Württemberg, just a stone's throw away from the mystically beautiful Black Forest. Hardly any other mountain region in Germany is as diverse and at the same time as mysterious as the Black Forest. This article is about a hike in the wild and romantic Murg Valley. To be more precise, to Bermersbach, a district of the idyllically beautiful municipality of Forbach.

You could say that it has almost become a tradition for me to travel around Christmas time. Because I always find it exciting to experience how other cities and countries prepare for Christmas and celebrate the festival of love. This time we went to the Czech capital at the end of 2019 - to Prague.
