Walking towards Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh

Last Friday around noon we hopped on a plane to fly up to Edinburgh until Sunday night. It was the first time in Scotland for both of us, so we happily embarked on a full-on tourist adventure.

Castle, ghost tour and more

We walke...

We're back in Portugal

After two weeks in Japan we all...

We’ve spent the last few days in Queensland with Lac’s mum and have been enjoying warm tropical weather and many, many home-cooked meals.

What we’ve also been enjoying are our new takeaway coffee cups made of glass, which were waiting for us as a little welcome present...

We, the Salty Roamers, that´s Andi and Kathi, are both Austrian but met while travelling in Nicaragua. The name is a creation of being...

I didn’t get the chance to say goodbye to you. But in a way it’s better like that because I hate goodbyes. They are too definite and sad and I’d rather keep the communication going between us.

If I learnt something from your death, it is that life is precious and time i...

I'm here to promote your habit of procrastination

I couple of weeks ago I was sitting in a café working on a translation job when I couldn’t stop thinking about one question. What is my purpose as a writer? How do I add value to my surroundings and people in general?

How good does it feel to check things off your to-do list?

Lately I’ve become addicted to creating and then checking things off various lists. I make little sticky notes on my computer, I write notes on my phone, I use my travel notebook and scribble things in it. I’ve...

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.
