Beach hopping and snorkeling in the Riviera Maya

February 20, 2018
best snorkeling in the Riviera Maya

I’m still raving about the beaches from our Mexico trip: The soft white sand and turquoise water fulfilled all our Caribbean dreams. Once you see them you’re not questioning anymore why Cancún and the Riviera Maya (the stretch between Playa del Carmen and Tulum) have become such popular tourist destinations. Even during high season – while highly frequented – we found the beaches serene and peaceful – and incredibly clean!…

The ruins and cenotes of Tulum

less visited cenotes in Tulum

While we managed to move to a new apartment and travel to 3 countries in the past 5 weeks, my blog was on mute. But I’m still around and I’m happy to finally share my little Christmas getaway in Mexico with you 😀 I was super excited to have my first experience with this country. But to be honest, we all know that the area around Cancún, Playa del Carmen and Tulum is super developed and anything else than untouched…

Visiting Mu Koh Surin National Park

Surin islands day trip

Dear Thailand, I gotta tell you something: You’re spoiled. The amount of tropical islands that belong to your kingdom isn’t fair. And I doubt I’ll be able to visit all of them during my lifetime but I’m trying. It doesn’t matter how often I keep coming back to you, I’ll always end up with a longer bucket list. One by one I’m working my way through that list to finally make it to one of the remotest of all Thai…

During the long weekend in August I visited a good friend I haven’t seen in a long time and on top of that, she lives near one of my favourite cities – Barcelona! I arrived late in the evening, decided to stay in the city the first night and chose a budget-friendly hostel… Well that night I found out that I’m getting too old for this type of accommodation because while I felt like I was the only one who seriously was…

3 Tips for summer in NYC

August 17, 2016
Kimoto rooftop

Summer in the city? Yes please! I dared to visit NYC in the summer and although it was as hot and humid as I feared, after all it wasn’t that bad. Of course I didn’t walk through the concrete jungle during the hottest time of the day if I could avoid it. AC’s are life savers (especially in the trains as you can get baked in the stations…), so are cold drinks and the refreshing Atlantic ocean. …

Greetings from the Cape

August 9, 2016
Cape Cod

What locals simply call the cape actually is the shortcut for Cape Cod, a peninsula and popular summer destination that offers endless sandy beaches, lots of hiking and bike trails and the epicentre of hippie and gay tourism in the artsy town of Provincetown. It supposed to be an easy two-hour drive from Boston but turned out to be four at the end thanks to heavy traffic.…
