AQVA Boutique Hotel 04

When Italy meets scandinavian design. Is there a better combination?   Design is so simple, that’s why it’s so complicated.

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.”  Joseph Campbell Minimal luxury.

Fuerteventura Travel Diary Pt. 1

fuerteventura_01

At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun. I would like to travel the world with you twice. Once, to see the world. Twice, to see the way you see the world. Spending some wonderful days full of sandy feet, salty hair and sunkissed skin at Fuerteventura, we discovered our latest passion – surfing! Now we’re back in Munich but in our mind we’re still sitting on the surfboards…

Black_details

Trust the Timing of your life. Munich. I know – and I’m sorry. For the lack of posts. Let’s say I’ve been on a digital detox trip the last few weeks. Why? We moved from Frankfurt to Munich being super busy. I quit my job in Frankfurt a few months ago and started to work as a PR consultant in Munich. We’ve been so busy looking for a new home there and finally found one. Now that we have wifi again and most of the interior done I will get back…

Here are a few of the highlights and most memorable moments. A few months ago where summer seems to stay forever we had such a good time traveling a lot of places together – Marocco, Tegernsee, Kopenhagen, Hamburg, Kiel, Monaco, Nizza and lovely island Mallorca.

We explored some beautiful beaches by boat, took a dip in the refreshing water,…

Un petit bonjour. Nice, Southfrance. Any trip to the Cote d’Azur should include a stop in Nice, overlooking the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean and strolling through the old part of this charming city. Unfortunately we just spent a few hours there but maybe there will be a coming back! A bientot, Nice! // Wenn man an die Cote d’Azur denkt, fällt einem in erster Linie (auch mir) Monaco, Cannes und St.Tropez ein. Jetzt weiß ich, dass Nizza auf jeden Fall einen Stop wert ist. Schon alleine der wunderbare Strand…

Bali_kelapa_retreat

From striking views to yoga on the beach, Bali is the ultimate relaxation destination. Beautiful Bali. As I fall asleep in the plush king-sized bed on the first night, I am lulled by the sound of the lapping ocean and I wake up naturally the next morning, for one of their delicious breakfasts. As I step outside the front door of my private villa, I was overwhelmed. We arrived in the middle of the night after an exhausting 14 hours flight from Germany and just could adumbrate how it would…
