AITUTAKI – one day in paradise

KAT COOK ISLANDS, COOK ISLANDS 2016 4 Comments

Endless white sandy beaches, palm trees and fresh coconuts, tropical fish and a coral reef. Does this sound like paradise? It does, but we think it´s for some other reasons than these same white sandy beaches. After spending a little less than 2 weeks on Cook islands, we believe in what we´re saying ;).

road trips in Germany: Bremen – Cuxhaven – Helgoland – Bremerhaven

KAT DESTINATIONS WITH KIDS, GERMANY, GERMANY 2012 - today, TRAVEL WITH KIDS Leave a Comment

Another great weekend is behind us and once again, Germany seized to surprise not only me, but this time also Gin! We drove off Friday morning and had 3 days time to spent on the northern coast – we chose Cuxhaven as a base. It was one of those spontaneous decisions, we booked a place to sleep only a few …

off the beaten track in Germany – HELGOLAND

KAT DESTINATIONS WITH KIDS, GERMANY, GERMANY 2012 - today, TRAVEL WITH KIDS Leave a Comment

Since we have the awesome opportunity to enjoy a 3-day weekend every weekend for the next couple of weeks, we tend to make the best of it. And since summer is (or at least should be) coming, we thought of visiting the German north coast again. I was never in Cuxhaven and so, we had our goal. And as I …

Mljet is the most southerly and easterly of the larger Adriatic islands of the Dalmatia region and also the greenest and most forested of them all. A big part of it is also a protected area of a national park. Many tourists come for the amazing nature and are seeking peace, recreation and good food. Some are only coming over …

It´s big, it´s clean, it´s green, its has some amazing architecture, great restaurants and (from what we heard) nightlife. And if you feel too claustrophobic between all the big skyscrapers you can easily escape to one of the beaches or parks nearby. I was in Singapore when I was 14 years old and everything looked soooo big back then – …

MADEIRA – exploring the island in 6 days

KAT MADEIRA, PORTUGAL Leave a Comment

Before flying to Madeira, all I knew about it was what I´ve heard of my parents who were there a few years before. I concluded, this was not the best destination for a small child, so I put the island on my “i-will-go-there-when-Lu-is-18” list. But then it just so happened last year that we decided together with two girlfriends to …

VIS – the real “Mediterranean as it once was” & one of our favourite Dalmatian islands

KAT CROATIA, CROATIA 2012 - today, DESTINATIONS WITH KIDS, TRAVEL WITH KIDS 5 Comments

This summer we spent about 10 days on the Dalmatian island Vis, the farthest island from Croatia´s mainland. As the island was once a military zone and therefore inaccessible to all foreigners it has retained its charm and can truly be called “the Mediterranean as it once was”. We like Vis because of its uncrowded beaches, little stone house villages …
