Granada – Nicaragua’s colonial beauty

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.

Léon – home to poetry and revolution

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.

Fez, Morocco – an insider guide to the medina’s maze

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.

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.

Marrakesh – the dream of 1001 nights

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.
