You gotta love love

It’s that time of the year again when you’re spending some time with your family including awkward get-togethers, where distant relatives hug you for too long and ask uncomfortable questions. There’s a tree that takes up half of the room and Christmas cookies spilling over mum’s special holiday dish. Far too much food to be eaten in a short amount of time and gifts that were hastily bought a couple of days earlier just to lie around forgotten for the rest of the year.

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.
