From Chania Beaches to Loutro: My Crete itinerary

30th June 2021

I picked the island of Crete a little randomly — the flights were cheap, I needed a holiday, it wasn’t awfully far from Berlin, the Chania weather sounded like just what I needed, the gazillion Chania beaches were just the ticket, this little town called Loutro seemed too good to be true, and a Chania car rental cost peanuts. It do be a done deal, I thought. My friend Olga and I decided to wing it a little, flew right into Chania, decided on a cheap Chania airport car rental company, picked one of many affordable Chania hotels for the first three nights, and off we went on a whim.

Tale of an Istanbul Hammam Nude Experience

14th June 2021

I read so many Turkish bath naked horror stories online from other travel bloggers that my curiosity got sufficiently piqued: I just had to volunteer myself on the naked altar of the body scrub sacrifice for the greater good of this blog (I know, tough…) – a rather painful and awkward experience by many if not all accounts, and see what this Turkish hammam nude experience was all about and if it was worth a good story.

The problem with Kuta Lombok

27th April 2021

I arrived in Kuta Lombok Indonesia full of expectations, after hearing so many tales of unspoiled Southeast Asia paradise from friends and trusted acquaintances. When I go somewhere I’m this hyped up about, reality doesn’t always match the expectations: it happened in the Perhentian Islands, it happened in Hawaii and it nearly happened on first time in Koh Phangan and in the Gili Islands, specifically Gili Air. Unfortunately, it also happened in the coastal town of Kuta Lombok, another popular spot.

Berlin Sex Club: My Kitkat Experience

28th March 2021

I remember being at my Couchsurfing host Laura in Milan in preparation for my arrival to Berlin, about five years ago. She lived between the two cities, spent a lot of her weekends in Berlin, and kept yapping on about how free-spirited Berlin was. Specifically, she mentioned several times how wonderful it was that people were just strutting totally nude in Berlin sex clubs such as Berghain (an abandoned power plant turned into the most famous techno club, AKA the church of techno) and Kitkat Berlin, getting it on in public in Central Berlin as casually as you’d sip a beer on a rocking chair on the porch of the Marina back where I’m from.

Yoga Retreat Costa Rica: Where to go

14th March 2021

The mystical Central American nation of Costa Rica is a place of stunning and lush jungle scenery, jaw-dropping beaches and an altogether welcoming country where you can lose yourself in the mists of ancient time and find yourself all over again. Your true deep self. And if you decide to embark on a yoga retreat Costa Rica has it all.

The Vegan Stockholm Restaurant Guide

2nd February 2021

Stockholm’s vegan scene is rather small but definitely vibrant and varied. The one thing I found a bit strange is how most vegan places are only open for lunch, but there are a few places that offer dinner too, of course. I won’t bore you too much with an intro, but I just want to say that the vegan Stockholm scene has some of the best fast food and Asian food I’ve ever had, and a throng of cute little hipster cafes worth crashing for some healthy breakfast food and delicious coffee. I loved Stockholm and it’s made it to one of my favourite places in Europe for vegan food!

The Best 2022 Couples Retreat Experiences

3rd January 2021

Couples who travel together stay together – as the old saying goes. Although I’m not quite a prime example of that myself. So how about going on a retreat for couples, like a couples meditation retreat together?

Not only does a couple holiday allow you to create some amazing memories during uninterrupted time with your other half, but it’s also the perfect opportunity to increase communication, trust, and intimacy in a relationship. Especially if the trip you’re taking is a specialized retreat for couples.
