Phone stories: Indian summer hikes, Bangkok nights & Nordic sunsets

Hurray, it’s summer! Berlin feels like it’s skipped spring and went straight to shorts-and-sunscreen-weather. And what a difference that vitamin D makes! The sun got me itching to change everything! Which would explain why my apartment is an absolute mess of stuff I want to get rid of and new wooden bits that are waiting to be built. Yes, in proper DIY style…

Speaking of starting the new year, what are your travel resolutions? I have set myself the infamous target to stop getting on rather spontaneous getaways that always turn out pricier than expected and instead save for a big trip in summer whose destination will be unclear for quite some time.
