Feeling the energy of the new year pulsing through me I’m looking at the waves. They are peculiar. They seem the same. Each one washes in with a certain familiarity but when you really look at them you notice that they’re all different.

No wave is ever the same. No life...

To my dad

Who I haven’t seen in a year

Who has left us without saying goodbye

Whose heart just stopped beating

Who didn’t give us a warning

A phone call, then silence

I didn’t believe it was true

I hung up and started walking

Not in any particular direction

Just moving from one...

A couple of weeks ago I went on my very first retreat. Writing, meditation, yoga, it sounded very promising. All in the magical surroundings of Malaga in Southern Spain. A proper adventure not knowing what or who to expect on the other side.

Hello there!

I'm Alex and this is my travel and lifestyle blog. I suffer from Destinesia. I also call it go-with-the-flow travelling. It's when you have a travel itinerary but then you meet someone and change your plans completely or you just love a place so much you stay much longer than expected. You just go with what feels right. This is what happened to me in Nicaragua. You can read more about it here.

I'm also a writer/copywriter/translator. Here you can find a link to my online portfolio and my CV. I'm always looking for new projects and interesting collaborations. Check here for more contact details and get in touch:

Enjoy looking around here for some inspiration and most of all, have fun exploring the world!

Weekly travel tip

I'll post something travel-related here weekly. Watch this space!


Christmas is coming. It's approaching fast. If you're in Europe, don't miss out on visiting one of the many traditional Christmas markets and have some delicious Glühwein/Glögg. Enjoy!

Packing list

You're going on a trip but don't know what to pack? For some reason you always end up with way too much? Don't worry, this happened to me so many times.

Here some tips:


  • Travel light. Pack versatile clothes and shoes and use travel-sized cosmetics for a hassle-free trip

  • Roll your clothes and stuff your shoes with socks and stockings

  • Plastic bags double up as shoe covers and storage for dirty clothes

Check out my article about smart packing for more tips. It definitely helps to print out a packing list you can check off, so you don't forget anything important.
