The plethora of churches in Mainz

During out trip in Europe last June, we visited Germany. One of the stops there was Mainz; a lovely city on the Rhein River. We especially enjoyed walking around the Altstadt (old centre), where we walked around the marketplace and enjoyed watching people.

World Most visited Tourist Attractions

Travel+Leisure came out with the World’s Most-Visited Tourist Attraction {for the list and explanation of the tally, check out their website here}. As I have been travelling around for a bit, I wanted to see how far I would get on this list. I did not even reach half {which means I still have some more places to go 😉 } – 15 out of 50 – but I did work in one place, Disneyland Park Paris, so that probably counts double right?

Phuket Picks; Blue Elephant Cooking School and Restaurant

As you all probably know, I have been writing and making photos for Wanderlust: Expat Life & Style Magazine for the past months. This has made me go all around the island and get to know this little place a lot better. For the June/July 2015 issue [http://www.thailand.wanderlustmag.com/], I joined Vanessa for a cooking class at Blue Elephant Cooking School and Restaurant. Vanessa – our foodie – wrote all about the class given by Chef Tiger and I joined the fun to make some nice photos.

As I loved the cooking class so much, I wanted to share my experience with you guys! If you ever head over to Phuket and want to learn a thing or two about Thai cooking, make sure not to miss this amazing place!
