That time we went sandboarding in Western Australia

Last year Lac and I travelled for a couple of weeks in a van from Perth up to Kalbarri and down to Margaret River after attending the picture-perfect wedding of our friends Ash and Tariq on their family farm. We camped at beautiful spots, saw a bunch of animals up close like pelicans, kangaroos, an emu (it looked like a man with a black sweater jogging next to the road at dusk so I’m not 100% sure, but I’m just running with it) and two brown snakes (!!). We also got very creative cooking pasta in a dog bowl when we couldn’t find a pot, but that’s another story :) On the road with our "Mystery Machine" From desert to lush greens always along the vast ocean We had a great time exploring the va

What if your new destination is a letdown?

You’ve arranged everything for your next destination. You’ve got your accommodation sorted, you have your flight/bus tickets in the pocket and you’re ready to leave your home of a few weeks/months behind to move on to a new place. You can hardly contain your excitement and the expectations are high… Then you arrive at your next home for a while and it’s not what you expected. You don’t feel inspired. You’re not vibing it. You can’t really put your finger on it but something’s just not right.

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!

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.
