We quickly lost ourselves wandering the narrow streets of Zanzibar’s cultural heart: Stone Town. It almost feels like a journey in time as we pass decayed buildings. Stone Town is sheer incredible, and we promise you, that you'll be mesmerized at every corner!

Tanzania’s former capital, often referred to as “Dar,” is not only Tanzania’s second largest city but one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Located along the coast of the Indian Ocean, Dar es Salaam is brimming with activities for anyone.
Arusha, Tanzania, is a city in the middle of two worlds. This creates an exciting mix of people and cultures that make Arusha is unique. Arusha itself is a dusty, charming mid-sized African city.
Fez has been lovely. We had a great time roaming the medina's maze. But Chefauchouen has been calling us. Many travelers have enthused by the charm of the blue city. Of course, we were eager to discover the blue town for ourselves.
After visiting the blue medina of Chefchaouen, we were off for a more authentic experience. Meknès is not as often visited as its glamorous neighbor Fez. We really can't understand why. To us, Meknès was a fascinating city to visit. It's not as busy or big as its famous neighbor Meknes, but that only adds to its charm.
Marrakesh mesmerized me from the second we left the cab. Surrounded by "guides" eager to lead us to our Riad. Never would we have found our Riad ourselves, even though the taxi left us only about 300 m from the entrance. The unimposing door was hiding the beautifully decorated and colorful Riad. We were confronted with the incredible detail of Moroccan style. We stood there with our mouths open. Deeply impressed and taken aback by so many impressions, so much beauty.
Fez's old city, the medina consists of more than 9400 alleys. Some of them more extensive, some of them so narrow you almost didn't recognise it them as a path. Moroccans are proud of their traditions and heritage. As you roam through the streets, you'll be able to watch artisans apply century old traditions. Fez, one of the four royal cities of Morocco was home to respected Imans, artists and scholars is a proud, confident city. It felt cosmopolitan and yet quaint at the same time.
G-R-A-N-A-D-A, we almost want to color every letter when we think about this stunning colonial city. As always we arrived in the dark and only got a glimpse of the city after sunset. As we were looking for our Airbnb we passed grand churches and Calle la Calzada, a street lined with cafes, restaurants, and shops, buzzing with locals and tourists alike. The vibrant, elegant and lively city was screaming to be explored. We weren't able to resist Granda's charm and ventured out for a little walk after we arrived. Granada, one of the oldest cities in the Americas is frolicking with colorful buildings and delightful alleys.
From the admittedly touristy, but still beautiful Granada, we set off to the cultural and folklore capital, Masya. The bubbly city is famous for its passion for music, dance and traditional crafts. Stroll around the and discover colorful corners of the ingenious influenced small town. Masaya will surprise you with its creative diversity and authentic charm. Most of all, charming Massaya bursts with life.
Our love affair with Leon started on Valentine’s day. Contrary to Granada, Nicaragua’s second largest city feels much more authentic and is not overrun by tourists. The drop-dead gorgeous city manages to maintain it’s genuine charm. Just outside of Léon, numerous volcanos wait for you to climb or surf them. And as if this wasn’t enough, some of Nicaragua’s most beautiful beach and surf spots are just around the corner.
