Berlin – Is it really Germany?

If you like electronic music & graffiti, this is for you… After slowing down to ‘Island time’ for almost a month, I came to Berlin not really knowing what to expect. The thought heading back to a big city after being in chilled out places like the Balearic Islands and Portugal makes you somewhat nervous, […]

Lisbon, Portugal

A beautiful city in so many ways Portugal is high on my list for destinations, it’s hard not to like it. After booking a nice apartment to myself, found moments before boarding the plane to Lisbon I was on my way. An uber from the airport took about 30mins, yet only cost several euros? Good […]

The Galápagos Islands

One of the world’s foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing Everything I read and everyone I spoke to warned me about how expensive it was going to be. It turned out to be not as expensive as depicted – if you are happy to do it on the cheap. The Galapagos Islands are a little rough around […]
