Can you go to the Blue Lagoon Naked?

9th November 2021

If you’ve been reading my articles about spas around the world, you might have noticed some important things. If you haven’t — newsflash: I seem to have taken a liking to getting buck naked in public. I mean, who doesn’t? Right? Righhhhhhttttt? Anyone? Well, ok, fine. Today, for a change, let me tell you about this one time in Iceland when I did not in fact get naked at the spa. It does happen, sometimes. But can you go to the Blue Lagoon naked, you may ask? What is wrong with you, you perverts!

The Best Yoga Studios in Berlin

2nd November 2021

I get asked on Instagram almost every day what the best places for yoga in Berlin are. Truth be told, with over 400 different yoga studios offering classes in the city, and so many yoga styles having come into existence, I cannot for a fact guarantee I have discovered absolutely all of the best yoga Berlin places in existence. I have, however, in my 5+ years here, tried many of them, some good and some not so good, and I have for sure taken on a liking to some specific beautiful studios and passionate teachers. So whether you’re in Berlin temporarily or settling in forever, whether you prefer the full German immersion, or would rather ease into things and do yoga in English, Berlin has it all lined up for you!

The Best Yoga Retreats in Europe: Find Your Top Holidays

22nd September 2021

Stop saying that Summer is over! Kids are finally back in school, beaches are at long last quiet — it’s time to plan a yoga retreat Europe vacation! I know many of you (including myself) often look towards South-East Asia (Thailand and Sri Lanka are high up on my list) or South America for a yoga retreat, but when the budget is tight and the time is short, there’s no need to go too far afield, as there are amazing options for a retreat in Europe. And while some countries may seem more appropriate than others for a relaxing yoga retreat Europe holiday because of their proximity to beautiful beaches or nature, I’ve found that there are fantastic options literally everywhere for daily yoga classes, and meditation, especially for a short break.

The best Berlin hidden photo spots

9th September 2021

I was a bit underwhelmed the first-ever time I set foot in Berlin. I thought the city lacked in “WOW” factor and was sprawling too much and missing some form of a focal point. Some may beg to differ, but this was my first impression. So whenever I get asked for my best Berlin Instagram spots, I always find it a bit ironic.

My German Nude Spa Experience at Vabali

10th August 2021

I fell in love with being in a German nude spa at Vabali spa berlin.

I know some of my German friends would roll their eyes at me for saying that Germans love themselves a bit of mixed gender nudity. Ahh yes, the German nude spa topic, here we go. But upon visiting vabali, I think they totally do. If you’re not familiar with the Freikörperkultur, of FKK (free body culture), chances are you will after spending some time in Germany. At the very least, you will have heard of a nude spa Germany one way or another. And while some would simplify that the FKK movement was born as a form of resistance against the East German regime, nudism in Germany has its roots way further in history.

The best hotels in Berlin

12th July 2021

It’s no secret that Berlin has been my main squeeze for a few years now. Aside from the relatively harsh Winters, I love everything about Berlin. But depending on who you ask, you may find it can be an intimidating place, especially if visiting alone and trying to figure out what the best hotels in Berlin are for a weekend in Berlin. I came to know Berlin as the city where people went to KitKat Club naked and that was way before the city turned me into a bit of a slightly crazy person — so I was kinda wondering WTF was gonna happen there.

Best Vegan Burger Berlin Guide

4th July 2021

Looking for the best vegan burger in Berlin?

I’m vegan burger-obsessed as much as I’m a health nut. If there’s a burger on the menu, it’ll trump any organic cardboardy bird food I’d usually go for. And to say Berlin has its vegan burger game down pat is quite the understatement. Every burger joints has a vegan option. Scratch that. Every restaurant has a burger option has a vegan burger option. Berlin has more burger spots than native Berliners and my ambition to document every single vegan burger option in the city was quickly shut down by the pace at which places open and close. So, as the Berlin vegan burger scene ebbs and flows like a goddamn annoying breathing thing, this guide is getting updated with my latest discoveries and classics not to be missed.
