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!…

January 29, 2018
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 to be honest, we all know that the area around Cancún, Playa del Carmen and Tulum is super developed and anything else than untouched…

Through fairy tale lands in Watkins Glen, NY

August 3, 2017
Watkins Glen gorge trail

Guys, I hope you’re not tired of waterfalls yet! There’s more to come but it’ll be the last one for now – promised 😉 Our last stop of our upstate road trip took us back to the Finger Lakes region, not far from our first spot Ithaca. This time, however, we stayed closer to the lake and further from any big towns. It was the perfect place to relax after visiting comparably busy Niagara Falls.…

Niagara Falls – More than just a waterfall

July 21, 2017
Niagara Falls Canadian vs US side

We continued our road trip from Ithaca towards west and crossed the bridge with the friendly name Rainbow Bridge where I set foot on Canadian ground for the very first time. Niagara Falls – there’s not much to tell you – I mean EVERYONE has at least heard about them, and being one of the top tourist attractions in the world (among the Top 10) a lot of people have seen them too. That being said, Niagara Falls still hasn’t lost…
