Xmas Market Tower Bridge

London is super beautiful during Xmas. Just walk along Oxford Street or Covent Garden and you will see the most beautiful Christmas decorations. If you feel like having an even larger dose of Xmas, head over to one of London’s Christmas markets.

This weekend had such a jolly Xmas theme! I went to the gym on Friday night (the only non Xmas activity at the weekend!) and had an early night afterwards. On Saturday we headed to my friends’ place for the yearly ginger house party where we had mulled wine, listened to Christmas music and built & decorated ginger bread houses…

Chacaltaya Mountain – Bolivia

If you have the chance to visit La Paz and are up for elevating yourself to approximately 5,400 m, join the Chacaltaya Mountain tour. Already on your way to the mountain the view is breathtaking and beautiful. Also there are not so many tourists so that you are able to experience the nature’s unspoiled beauty. After stopping to take some…

During the last few years I went 4x times to the islands and I still love them. They are just so convenient when you live…

Liberty Tea Time and Dinner at Burger & Lobster

Today I met a friend for a veeeery late afternoon tea at Liberty in Oxford Circus. Have you been? Their decoration is so pretty! After our tea session we decided to have a little stroll through Liberty’s Christmas Shop. I know it’s way too early for Xmas (like at least 2 weeks to go!) but since the Christmas Shop was just…

Impressions of Machu Picchu & How To Get There

Have you been to Machu Picchu? If not, move it high up on your travel bucket list! As you know I am a super big fan of Peru anyway (I studied there for a semester) so I will likely love a lot more about Peru than the ‘normal’ tourist. BUT I am sure there is nobody who doesn’t like Machu…
