Easy hike from Bürgenstock to Hammetschwand

Few weeks ago, my husband and I visited Bürgenstock, a lovely holiday spot in Central Switzerland located atop of a mountain ridge above the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee)

You might remember I’ve already been there couple of times – last time in December 2017 when I celebrated my birthday at the Alpine spa of the Bürgenstock Resort, but it has been even longer since I hiked to the highest point of the ridge Hammetschwand. Since it has been so long, I’ve noticed things changed a bit. With the luxury resorts open, Bürgenstock became much more accessible by the public transport. Now you can not only take the bus, but also a ship and funicular to get there*. Hence the easier accessibility, the amount of people at Bürgenstock and Hammetschwand increased a bit.

Swimming with the wild dolphins in Mauritius

Who hasn’t dreamt of swimming with the dolphins at least at some point of their life? I most certainly did. Just before my husband and booked our flights to Mauritius, we found out this island in the middle of the Indian Ocean is one of the places where you can swim and observe the dolphins in their natural habitat. This seemed like an ideal opportunity to finally fulfill our childhood dreams. So, we didn’t hesitate long before we decided to book a trip to go swimming with dolphins. Our experience was amazing. See for yourself in the video down bellow:

Because they say a picture is worth a thousand words, here are ten of my favourite photos I took while exploring this beautiful island in the middle of Indian Ocean. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

My 10 favourite YouTube Travel Channels

I always enjoyed watching travel shows. They were not only a tool to learn about different countries and cultures, but they also evoked travel bug that inspired me me to start travelling and exploring the world. Since I got my GoPro and I started making my own travel videos (which is btw also the reason I don’t post as much as I should on my blog), I discovered the world of YouTube travel channels – a fun and inspiring alternative to travel shows. Here is a list of 10 channels I currently enjoy watching:

American couple Kara and Nate are full time travellers on a mission to visit 100 countries by 2019. They vlogs are interesting, fun, informative and their bubbly personalities makes me want to just pack your bags and join them on their adventures.

Ski Season 2017/18 – Summary

It seems like winter finally bid goodbye to the Northern hemisphere. Most of ski resorts have already stopped operating their lifts and shut down their slopes. Looking back, this ski season was amazing in terms of ski conditions, but I haven’t skied as much as I hoped I would. Even though, I’ve managed to revisit two of my favourite ski resorts (Grindelwald & Melchsee Frutt) and visited two new resorts (Lenzerheide & Stoos): Continue reading

Counting the days till trip to Mauritius

Where?

Mauritius

WHEN?

From 27th April to 6th May 2018

WHY Mauritius?
  • Stunning beaches
  • Underwater world
  • Wild dolphins spotting
  • Beautiful unique nature

My dad is turning 50 this year. As this is kind of a big deal anniversary, my mum, husband and I are taking him to Mauritius, a tiny island in the Indian ocean, situated east of Madagascar. Once described by Mark Twain with those words: “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven, and that heaven was copied after Mauritius.” seems like an ideal destination for dad’s 50th birthday celebrations.

In order to make my dad’s birthday trip even more memorable, I would like to ask YOU my dear readers for some assistance. If you have already visited Mauritius, what are your favourite places there? What attractions are must see? Which beaches did you like the best? Where is the best snorkelling? What activities would you recommend? Where do they serve the best food? What local delicacy must we try? Any suggestion would be highly appreciated!

Blast from the Past: Bern

It has been a while since the last Blast from the Past (a blog series in which I’m reminiscing my past trips and travels). Don’t worry, I did not run out of photographs. There are still some left to share – starting with gorgeous Swiss capital Bern I’ve visited with my friends few years before I moved to Switzerland, on the first day of the year 2009. Stroll through the snowy cobbled streets and squares of Bern’s old town was a lovely way to start a year, wouldn’t you agree?

Video: Sirmione on the Lake Garda in Northern Italy

A year ago I travelled to Italy with my friends and husband. One of the places we’ve visited on that weekend-trip was lovely Sirmione located on the south bank of Lake Garda (Lago di Garda). We strolled the cute narrow streets and alleys, ate some delicious Italian gelato, marvelled the Scaligera Fortress, visited ruins of an ancient Roman Villa called Grotte di Gatullo and admired the amazing sunset over the Lake Garda. Here are some snaps from that trip:

Have you ever been to Sirmione? Did you like it?

On our trip to South-East Asia in autumn 2017 my husband and I visited three countries – Singapore, Cambodia and Thailand.
