Travel Fever – we all know what it feels like. And what better way to cure it than to start booking away a few trips here and there? This year I am planning on taking as much if not more vacation as I did in the previous year Read More »
The next and last day was spent at Camden Market, which I really came to love in 2011. After having a delish breakfast in the Soho area, it was off to the bazaar and finding some souvenirs for the peeps back at home (and NY). Read More »
The very next day I paid the British Museum a visit. Just from the outside, as I already had been inside before. From here I strolled through Soho and Chinatown, the latter which I had been looking forward to returning to, since it’s quite picturesque and pretty. Read More »
My first Eurotrip of the year is already two months ago but I forgot to mention my stay in one of the greatest cities of all: London!
After being to the Brit Capital in 2011 already (read more on my first adventure here and here), I had always wanted to return and give this fabulous town another chance to catch up on some of the things I missed out on. Read More »
As you may have noticed by now, I have a thing for cramming in way too many places when short traveling. Especially when going back to Europe, where flying from one city to another is really cheap (at least compared to the US). Read More »
The next morning held a special surprise for us: The sky opened up, revealing the beautiful sugar-capped volcanoes and a breath-taking landscape. After more than 48 hours of constant snowfall, we were finally able to see Iceland in a sunny light (which I still remembered from April). And after an energizing breakfast and some more socializing, we were finally up to an adventure. As in proper hiking and exploring of the stunning scenery. Read More »
Day one: What exciting times were to be ahead!
Landing with a red-eye flight on my first day in Iceland was perhaps one of the best ways to kick that jetlag in the behind. It seems that most flights from the US land extremely early. While I was waiting around at the airport at 6am, I therefore got to see a couple of tour groups from Seattle beingRead More »
Iceland – where do I begin? Landing in a full-blown snowstorm that only got worse was certainly one of the highlights. Also visiting the Blue Lagoon and spending some time in Reykjavik, the country’s capital, which I had already gotten to see in April (although buried under less snow then). Read More »
Exploring Europe for three weeks straight was certainly one of a kind. It all started with an epic trip to Iceland. From snowy days over adventurous excursions to just hanging out in Reykjavik – I know that even just starting to describe how it all felt will be an almost impossible task to solve. Read More »
That’s it! I’m at JFK, waiting on Icelandair to depart to an epic 21 day adventure. First stop: Reykjavik! Or rather: The Blue Lagoon close-by… Didn’t get to see it the last time I went, so I am making it my first destination.

It’s a brand-new year- since 9 long days already. And with excitement of the New Year come of course a few new resolutions, which in my case are synonymous to travel plans. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t have a few destinations picked out for this upcoming year already. The first confirmed trip of 2016 is indeed a visit back home. Read More »
