Maldives, Egypt & Mexico. Three wonderful places I got to visit in the last 12 months. If you’re craving summer right now – like me – then just keep reading and be mentally on vacation.
EGYPT: I visited Egypt with my mum in February last year. We kind of have this thing to fly to Egypt once a year and spend a couple of days with just the two of us. Egypt is great because it’s warm in the winter, not tooooo far from Germany and the dry desert climate means no sweat & no frizzy hair. We always stay at The Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh but this time we went to the Kempinski Hotel Soma Bay. What I really liked about the Kempinski was the huge pool / rock / waterfall scenery. It made me feel like I was on the Seychelles, kind of.
Hotel: Kempinski Hotel Soma Bay
MALDIVES: I can’t find the right words for the Maldives. Let’s just say: I’ve never been to such a beautiful, overwhelming and paradisiac place before. Everything is so unreal and looks so photoshopped – the turquoise water, the white sand, the giant palm trees, the dolphins, the sunsets and the typical water villas. I will definitely go back one day, on honeymoon at the latest haha. The only thing that scared the *** out of me was knowing that there are quite a lot of sharks, also close to the shore – luckily I didn’t see any. And somehow my skin couldn’t deal with the humidity. On day 1 my face broke out into a battlefield of acne but never miiiind. I feel like I’ve already posted a thousand pictures of my dream vacation on IG but I still found some more that you haven’t seen yet.. Enjoyyyy ♥︎
Hotel: Sun Siyam Iru Fushi
MEXICO: After staying on the Maldives it’s kind of hard for Mexico to compete. I loved the Maya Ruins, the Cenotes, the Coast of Tulum (seriously, it’s breathtaking) and of course our hotel. Maybe I’ve been to the wrong places but I kind of missed the calmness & silence. Everything was so crowded & loud and I just couldn’t get to that stage of pure relaxation haha.. Maybe I need to go back with more time to discover the less touristic parts of Mexico. Any suggestions? ♡
Hotel: El Dorado Maroma
Leave me a comment if you’ve got any travel suggestions ♥︎ Maybe LA next .. hm?
