As you might know, I have been living in Berlin for many years. I like to come back frequently, visiting the city for either business or pleasure – or both.

We all need a little travel inspiration now and then – even the most experienced travel enthusiasts. Therefore I was super happy when discovering my new favourite coffee table book The Bucket List: 1000 Adventures Big & Small By Kath Stathers.
After a particularly long winter in Germany, A and I flew to Puerto Rico earlier this spring, to embark on our first ever cruise. We spent seven amazing days aboard Silversea’s luxurious “Silver Wind” cruise ship and visited some of the most beatiful islands that the Carribean has to offer. Read along to find out more about our luxury cruise experience and why we became cruise converts during this trip.

For staying in Abu Dhabi, A&I have chosen the St. Regis Abu Dhabi, located at the Corniche and not to be confused with the resort property at Saadiyat Island, several times now.

I was not aware of Protea before but found out they do belong to Marriott so I guessed it was a sure shot. Read on to find out what I liked and didn’t and whether this is your option when travelling to Johannesburg.
I have never been to Kuala Lumpur before so when looking for hotels to stay during a short 3 day business trip I noticed how affordable the rates were. The Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur has solid reviews and is conveniently located in the city’s business & commercial district. Although it’s more on the mature end, I enjoyed the stay none the less.
For a short 5 hours flight from Kuala Lumpur to Taipeh, I booked AirAsia, a Malaysian low-cost carrier. They offer a class called „Premium Flatbed“ which is not to be confused with business class but offers some of the perks of it – first and foremost the seat.
When it comes to traveling, A and I love trying new culinary experiences and taste local flavours. No wonder I was beyond excited when the St. Regis Mauritius invited us to experience their exclusive Chef’s Table during our recent stay.
