24h in Bern, the beautiful capital of Switzerland

Have you also noticed how the trips you look forward to the most are often the ones that turn into travel fiascos?! I didn’t take many days off during the summer months, so my only holiday trip to a “new” place was to Switzerland for a wedding. I had planned to travel to Bern by train: the trip was…

Second stop in Laos: discovering the mysterious Plain of Jars

After spending a few days in Luang Prabang, I travelled 260km by minibus to my next stop in Laos, Phonsavan. The transfer from my hotel to the bus station in Luang Prabang was included in my ticket: I was picked up by a tuk tuk that already had lots of passengers/luggage, which didn’t seem to have…

First stop in Laos: Luang Prabang

It’s already been 2 months since I got back from my last holidays in South-East Asia so it’s high time I tell you more about the country I visited after my short stay in Bangkok! I flew from Bangkok on to Laos, which had been on my to-visit list for a few years! I read…

Korean & Japanese-style iced desserts in Bangkok (TH)

Bangkok has so many enormous, often inter-connected and quite pretty shopping malls. They generally have food courts or restaurants on several levels.

A short city break in Bangkok (TH)

Out and about around Killarney & Dublin (IE)

Ireland is a beautiful island that I highly recommend you to visit! Beautiful coastal routes with breathtaking scenery, rugged cliffs, clean beaches, colourful towns, picturesque castle or abbey ruins, countryside covered with lush green hilly fields and cute sheep or relaxed cows… these are some of the things I associate with Ireland and love about…

Discovering Malaysia & cendol

Here I am in Germany, Autumn has begun, temperatures are getting cooler and holidays seem far away. It’s quite nice for me take a break from Autumn and think back about my warm holidays in Malaysia a few years ago! Let me take you there for a short virtual trip! As you have figured out…

Vineyards, glazed tiles & ice cream in Beaune (FR)

Beaune is in the middle of the Burgundy wine-making region, where many Grand Cru wines are produced, mainly from Pinot noir and Chardonnay grapes. We set our mind on spending holidays in Burgundy after reading reviews highlighting its beautiful countryside with green hills, its medieval villages and its 1000 km of signposted cycling trails. I…
