Traveling to Thailand within Phuket Sandbox

With Thailand opening its borders to the world in 2021 it becomes possible again to think about a holiday in the land of smiles.

My experience at Nine Coliving, Tenerife

It’s 7am in the morning and the sun starts to rise slowly over the mountains. It seems like whole La Orotava is still sleeping – all I can hear are the birds.

Three things I always do when I visit a city

When I explored new cities I used to make a “To see-List”. The downside: Instead of having some relaxing days, I rather ended up doing a stressful hunt for sights. Ticking them off didn’t give me any pleasure so I changed my routine – and found three things I do each time I visit a new (or old) city. I may not see every sight and hotspot, but I do get different perspectives and have a much more enjoyable stay.

Five ways to meet people while traveling alone

I love traveling alone. One main reason is that I meet people from all over the world – I get to hear their stories, learn about their culture, broaden my horizon and make new connections (some of them last for years).
