Which is the best Cuba travel guide? A travel guide is basically indispensable on this somewhat different Caribbean island, not only for individual travelers. In the following we present 4 recommendable travel guides, which proved to be extremely useful during our round trip through Cuba.

Thailand – Destination Experts Victoria, Chris & Liam

We are a small family (Victoria, Chris and Liam) living mostly in Thailand and we write about it on our blog Nesting Nomads. 11 years ago, Chris and I were the 1. We have been to Thailand for the first time and after we got over the initial culture shock, the country just wouldn't let us go.

That's how we ended up returning almost every year and staying longer and longer at a time. The north of Thailand has become our home in the meantime. When our son was born, we were a little nervous about how he would handle our Thailand love. Fortunately, he got infected by our enthusiasm and then also removed our last doubts. Since 4 years we live now 6-9 months per year in Thailand. read more

It picks. All over the body. As if an army of ants would drill on it. The head cinema is rattling, showing small insects and all other life that is raging on a mountain meadow. But the smell is heavenly, of herbs, I could well stand it for a while – in a hay bath.

But a quarter of an hour is enough to get body and mind going. The hay comes from the lush alpine meadows in the Gsieser Valley in the Three Peaks region, explains Evi, our hostess at Hotel Bad Moos – Dolomites Spa Resort. read more

Traveling along the French-German border: 3 days in Strasbourg and Karlsruhe (1/2)

I liked the idea immediately: three days, two countries, one trip – as a German-French travel team on the road in Strasbourg and Karlsruhe. First Laurène shows me the highlights of the Alsatian capital, then we discover together the second largest city in Baden-Wurttemberg.

And so we meet at the train station of Strasbourg on a picture-book autumn day. It's a work of art in itself: colorful on the outside, flooded with light on the inside, where a glass construct docks with the old building. read more
