How can I help you find the perfect vacation?

Travel Blogger Silke

I know that we are all pressed for time. Let’s be realistic: most of us need to work to make a living. But when the time comes to slow down we want to make it count. We want to be touched by experiences that will stay with us forever. Precious moments that we want to share with the ones we love.

That’s me: My time is limited by school holidays, work schedules, annual leaves. Over time I have learned how to travel the smart way by careful planning, clever research and full immersion in a destination. It is my mission to help you do the same.

Let me inspire you to live the moment. Let’s make it count.
