Puglia, this well-known region of southern Italy, has been on my travel wish-list for many years now. Its rich history and culture, the warm-hearted Pugliese people, its sunny coasts, and Puglia’s more than praised cuisine were just a few of the reasons that convinced me to fly to Brindisi and start a 12-day road trip… Read More To Puglia or NOT to Puglia?
I have never been so happy to be back home, after a holiday. I usually suffer whenever a travel adventure ends, but this time, this particular holiday has put me through some very harsh, yet valuable experiences, and the return felt a lot sweeter than all the other times before.

And I, eventually, realized 2 things:… Read More 5 Easter mini-holidays for those who want to escape Frankfurt

As my holiday in Zanzibar ended right in the… Read More Stone Town – on slaves and doors that open to the past
After a week spent at Melia Zanzibar, we moved for two nights in Chumbe Island.
