5 Stories Behind My Favourite Photos Taken in 2017
Every year I try to go through all the photos I have taken. I never succeed at it since I take way too many shots, but it’s the intentions that count, right?
2017 has been a year of change. We are slowly changing our way of travelling, not intentionally, just doing what works best for us and learning from our mistakes. Our destinations are also starting to get a bit different. Both Madeira and Morocco were something special.
In this post I’m sharing 5 photos from 2017, that make me smile everytime. Each of them carries a story.
#1 Making new friends in Morocco
On day 2 of our trip to Merzouga desert, our host took us very close to the Algerian border. We got off our tired camels and started exploring the surrounding area, while he was looking after the animals. 20 minutes later, when I was coming back as the first of our tiny group, there was a foreign man asking me something.

Travel Goals for 2018 (and Recap on 2017)
Last Tuesday I was sitting on my cosy bed after coming back from a long day at work when it hit me – I was not sure where we were going next! Over the next few days, I came up with a plan.

It’s true I have only accomplished half of what I was planning to (4 out of 7), but I still consider this year a big success! In February, we did a lovely weekend getaway to the Czech Republic. Short, but sweet! Until April, I was very busy with my studies. At the end of the month, we took off for Madeira Island – a place that has been on my list since forever! We even had two layovers in Lisbon and that was a dream come true too.

Austrian Winter Fairytale in Salzburg
After many long weeks of wearing warm sweaters, watching out the window with hopes of seeing the season’s first snowfall, playing Christmas music too loudly and binge-watching Christmas movies too far in advance, my favourite time of year has finally arrived.
Although I had a last minute idea to escape to Salzburg for a weekend getaway in November already, things didn’t quite work out then. I am happy the trip had to be postponed since that meant I could not only wander through the city with two of my favourite persons but also see it dressed in a white. Read More
Experiencing an Authentic Afternoon Tea with a Local
If I asked you to name the most British thing you could think of, what would you say? My first association would be an afternoon tea – and what better way to experience it than with a local.
When I booked my tickets for London few months ago, I knew I wanted to do something special while there. Read More
Essential Tips For Visiting Fez, Morocco
Fez was the first bigger city we had visited and that’s why it was still full of surprises. Once you are familiar with the system, it’s more of less the same everywhere around Morocco. But until you get to know it, it can be overwhelming. In this post I want to give some tips to make your Fez experience even more pleasant than ours was (many of these can also be applied to other medinas).
