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

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 …

After the Easter holidays here in Germany, a whole series of holiday days start. 1st of May, then the “Christi Himmelfahrt”, followed by “Pfingsten” – so if you are smart and take some additional days off, you can have quite a few longer weekends. The past weekend was one of those, we had 4 days! And so we booked a …

Okay okay, it´s not really my home town, but it´s still my home country and since the whole country is so small it feels pretty much like home everywhere I go now. After arriving at the end of last week we got the chance to spend the whole Saturday without Lu (grandparents are a great invention, right?), so Gin went …

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 …

And really, in 2 weeks we were there we had literately no clouds! In the …
