Is the Great Barrier Reef as awesome as everyone says???

The short answer is yes. The long answer: OMG, I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW AWESOME THE GREAT BARRIER REEF IS AND EVERYONE, AT LEAST ONCE IN THEIR LIFETIME, SHOULD GO! Because I was sick, I was only able to organize one snorkeling trip and although that only gives you limited time to see anything, it at... Continue Reading →

Skipping Christmas.

Because Christmas is more than a place decorated with loads of glitter, on... Continue Reading →

Hawaiian jetlag

I am thoroughly exhausted, from head to toe. Jetlag is no joke but if I could any place to cure the jetlag, Hawaii is the place to do it! This morning, A and I had an Açaí bowl while sitting with flip-flops and shorts outside a cute little cafe. It was the most amazing, most... Continue Reading →

That was pre-Wifi and pre-smartphones and generally during a time, where simcards were not generally used in the US. It was 11 am... Continue Reading →

The travelinsurance

I never check the 'I want a travel insurance' box, because I never think about not making my flight, canceling due to sickness or any other unexpected happenings. It's only 10 bucks extra but when checking that box, am I not in a way already asking for trouble? To me checking that box indicates, that... Continue Reading →
