I’ve always had “problem skin”, which is just another term for acne, breakouts, spots, oily skin, etc. Ever since I can remember I battled blackheads and whiteheads, squeezed them and tried to – unsuccessfully – cover the mess up with make-up, concealers etc., which ma...

Last week we visited Buenos Aires and during our stay we also managed to check out the famous district of La Boca (=mouth in Spanish), which is known for its colourful houses and fanatic football fans. This part of town at the mouth of the river Matanza-Riachuelo burst...

Nothing better than exploring the local Heladería when you need a break from work

The last couple of days we’ve been battling the effects of a gruelling jet lag. We flew from Sydney to Santiago de Chile and gained over half a day but as a consequence lost countless hour...

Sometimes a four-legged friend is missing on the road

Travelling has such a positive effect on me. Every time I’m in a new country or city, every time I have an encounter with a different language, culture or tradition my senses are heightened. I love to fully immerse m...

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 website, 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:

alexmaria.huetter@gmail.com or info@mydestinesia.com.

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.
