Now I absolutely LOVE staying in and hibernating – especially in the fall and winter when the weather turns cold and the sun begins to set by 4pm – but I am also a huge adventurer and need to travel constantly. (Seriously, I have even started to notice that I get restless and unhappy if I’m not off exploring the world on a fairly regular basis). I’m actually pretty lucky, as I get to indulge the adventurer in me pretty regularly: work lets me travel occasionally, my family are kind enough to invite me for trips back home as well as for holidays, and I live in Europe where flights are relatively cheap, with friends I can always crash at in most major cities over here.

I was just recently back home in the US, so I’m not suffering from any cabin fever or wanderlust just yet. I also have so many projects going on at the moment, that my head is spinning and I have little time to think about where I want to dash off to next. Right now I’m perfectly happy in Berlin alternating between working, being cozy, meeting up with friends for coffee, and night outs at the moment, but am never one to pass up looking at beautiful photos of places near and far. And so, I have opted for being an armchair traveller at the moment, simply living through all of the beautiful adventure-themed photos that have been popping up instagram lately. Here are a few of my current favorites. Hopefully they can satiate the traveller in you too.

Do you like to travel? Where would you love to go if you could go anywhere right now in the world?

    Love this! Oh yes, I’m an adventurer and love exploring. My hubs took on a new job and he’s currently in Vienna and I’ve never been to Vienna before. So right now I’m exploring this beautiful city before I leave Sunday but will come back for more weeks soon. Plus we will move to the UK next year which is another big adventure. Love, Kirsten x


  • I’d love to travel. I really want to go to New York City and also London.

    And your pictures are gorgeous:)

  • Sara Nielsen

    Love the way you presented this – great post!

  • Love this post! Going on an adventure is definitely what I love to do! :)

  • I must totally agree… if I don’t travel at least once a year, I go a little nuts! Where exactly did you visit in the US? I hope you had a good time! Most recently, I went to Spain (Barcelona) for my honeymoon.

    Stay fab,

  • I would very much love to travel again soon, but sadly there’s nothing in the pipeline on short notice :-( . Thanks for sharing these pretty shots to provide some comfort ;-)

  • One of my lists is Iceland :) I really want to go there, though I am not a fan of the cold weather!

  • Armchair travelling — the only kind of travelling I do, really. Nothing wrong, haha, but I’d love to stretch my legs and mind and see the world more often than I actually do. The photos you’ve chosen are stunning, Rae, and enjoy your resting period. Can’t wait to see where you dash off to next.

  • I love travelling. There so many places on my bucketlist but for now I’m exploring my own country, The Philippines and the rest of Asia the next year =)


  • Wish my job was as exciting as yours! You get to travel a lot and see many places :) I want to go to Iceland to watch northern lights, I’ve been waiting for it for so long!

  • Haha this concept of “armchair traveling” definitely appeals to me, especially with those cold autumn evenings in mind! Thanks for the great inspo, right now I’m dreaming about mountains covered with snow. Maybe I’ll be able to get away somewhere during my Chrostmas break. If I could go anywhere, it would be Alpes – I’ve been there once and have some amazing memories. But if I don’t have enough time and money, I’ll probably head to the mountains in my own country (Poland). Some of the resorts here are really charming :)

  • Woah, so in love with your blog. ❃

  • I am so in love with adventuring! Everywhere is on my list to go :)

  • I love finding new places and the excitement that comes with traveling.

  • Sounds like me! I love to travel but I’m also happy to get cozy and curl up with a book and blanket

  • I love travelling! That’s how you get things in a perspective. And also fashion is different everywhere and that is how I get inspiration! ♥

    SO happy to be back!
    Wishing you a lovely day,

    I am such a travel-addict. I might whine about being jet-lagged or constant go-go-go state, but when I am somewhere for too long, I feel like something is missing. Then I take off and life becomes colourful again and it gives me a new and fresh perspective on things. I love my comfort & home but traveling is a bug I never want to get rid of :)
    Glad you are happy in Berlin, babe. It’s nice to settle somewhere and be happy there ( with occasional escapes all over the world) <3

    I love to travel and if I could go anywhere in the world right now it would be… PARIS! Then the rest of the Europe

    I love and enjoy traveling as well. You return rested and rejuvenated. Plus it’s always great to see things done differently in other places. Europe is loaded with exotic cities that offer so much. If I lived in Europe I’d probably want to explore non stop. Great adventure pics. Numbers 1, 6, 7 are calling my name, :)).

  • I love that you enjoy and appreciate both kind of lifestyles so much, I’m exactly the same :) But man! The photos you’ve picked, definitely bring out the explorer desires in me :P


  • Traveling is such a fun way to learn and see other things. Glad you get to do it!

  • Amazing photos. I really love your blog. Gemma xx

  • Love these snaps…and the term armchair traveler! I definitely have a bit of that going on at the moment. Now that it is getting cooler and the darker earlier, I feel the need to hibernate until spring. Guess I’ll be scrolling through Instagram to get my wanderlust fill.

  • Kathy

    Love the photos. I like to travel occasionally but not constantly. I am a bit of a home body sometimes. I would love to one day travel to Lake Como in Italy. For right now my travel is mainly within the United States. Have a great weekend!


  • Such beautiful photographs. I love travel and whenever I’m abroad I never want to return home! Great post :) x

  • Wow, such beautifully pictures capturing amazing destinations that I’d definitely want to visit. You always provide such inspirational pictures of so many different things, you definitely have a keen eye to detail :)

    I hope you have an amazing day and weekend, beautiful!

  • sileas

    Nice, I’m heavily bitten by the travel bug too… Can’t wait for my Thailand vacay in December – by then I’ll be craving for sun ;)

  • I have 4 trips ahead of me already! Funny how me and my friends actually discussed about how we couldn’t stay put for a short period of time. Not to mention how much more negative I am and how depressing I feel without a trip to look forward too! If I could go anywhere in now, it would be NYC. Place where dreams turn into glitter and sparkles <3

    I am more of a hibernator. I am perfectly happy staying at home and looking at pictures of beautiful places. This is mainly b/c I’m afraid of flying, though I do travel at least once a year.

  • I know how you feel, but as a student with the flight prices in Norway I have to stay home most of the year anyway, so I try to make the most of it! :)


  • I would love to travel and Italy or Ireland would be on top of my list!

    Pop over to my blog!


  • Thanks for sharing, love these accounts! Make me want to travel even more :)

    My biggest dream is to visit Machu Picchu!
