DOLOMITES
10 BREATHTAKING PHOTO SPOTS IN THE DOLOMITES. Switzerland has mountains. Apparently. Austria too. Germany also has a few. But to my liking - the best part of the Alps that you can find in Italy, especially in the Dolomites. It is a landscape photographer's paradise. Some spots are easy to get to, unfortunately you can feel it when you share your photo spots with dozens of other photographers. To some places you have to hike a bit. You will only meet a handful...

ICELAND
10 BREATHTAKING PHOTO SPOTS ON ICELAND. OK, let's face the truth. A trip to Iceland isn't as much fun as it was once. Too many tourists are overcrowding the best spots, well known through Instagram. But there is also good news: if you 1. don't only focus on (the admittedly easy reachable) spots in the South and 2. if you dare to visit Iceland during the harsh winter time, you will experience an atmosphere which is truly unforgettable! And as more as you venture up North - as less tourists...

SRI LANKA
10 BREATHTAKING PHOTO SPOTS IN SRI LANKA. I travelled quite a bit in Asia. But I must say - Sri Lanka was by far my favourite country on the Asian continent. For many reasons.

But it has also a lot of wildlife (mainly of course elephants, the symbol of Sri Lanka). And as a female solo traveller - I felt safe in Sri Lanka. People are welcoming...

WALES
10 BREATHTAKING PHOTO SPOTS IN WALES, UNITED KINGDOM. Wales. Yes, Wales is a country. It is NOT a county of England! But of course it is part of the UK. Once you crossed the Prince of Wales Bridge over the Severn - you are not in England anymore and you should carefully remember that talking to the Welsh. It is very unpopular to be called English over there. They are proud of their own country - and that is well deserved, it is a beauty on its own! Wales. It is the country of castles...

NEW ZEALAND SOUTH ISLAND
10 BREATHTAKING PHOTO SPOTS FOR THE SOUTH ISLAND OF NEW ZEALAND. Depending where you live - New Zealand is a long, long flight away... I lived in England when I travelled to NZ - and I basically lost a day. I departed Monday in Heathrow - and arrived Wednesday in Auckland. Lucky me I got this day back when I travelled home :-) I travelled both North and South Island and in this Travel Story I want to concentrate on the South...
