My Fabulous Digital Nomad Workspaces Of The Past Year

A little over a year ago, my husband, our 2-year old daughter and I boarded a plane to Spain — the first one of 18 planes in 12 months — to embark on a big adventure. Project title: paternity leave abroad.

After a short stop in Madrid, our second plane brought us directly to La Palma, La Isla Bonita, the first of 18 locations in 12 months. Our luggage decided to arrive two days later. So much for a perfect start.

But apart from that small incident, things went rather well. Our careful planning, which lasted months, has been worth every single minute and allowed us to relax, discover, and … work. While my husband got to test dozens of new playgrounds in his temporary role as a full-time dad, I was spoiled with workspaces close to nature. Nothing boosts my creativity more than a panoramic view.

Curious yet?
Here are my workspaces of the past year, including my all time favorite: Parua Bay, Northland, New Zealand. Gotta 💜 being a digital nomad. Would I do it again? Anytime!

Which fabulous digital nomad workspace can you recommend?

Au Revoir Paris

We’re moving on! A few weeks ago, we boarded a plane to La Palma (Canary Islands, Spain). Since then we’ve been to El Hierro as well as Tenerife, from where I’m currently working and updating this blog. We plan to see Gomera, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria in the near future. So if you’re a fan of the Canary Islands please keep an eye open for more photos and stories to come.

For now I wanted to say good bye to Paris and France, which was our home for the past 3 years. It’s been fun (most of the time)!

The following photos have been taken from the top of the Eiffel Tower during my last visit to the French capital. Au revoir Paris ! ♥️

I can’t help it, but I always feel like the architect of the Tour Montparnasse (the black tower) photobombed Paris’ skyline.

Eiffel-Tower-View1

I didn’t aim for that, but I couldn’t change the fact that there were a dozen people posing at the moment I released the shutter. #CameraGroupies

Eiffel-Tower-View3

To be honest, I like the view towards Place du Trocadéro from the Eiffel Tower, but on photos it always gets lost and I end up…

Weekend Wanderings: Colmar’s Old Town

Colmar France

Place de l’Ancienne-Douane in Colmar, France, at dusk

I am thrilled that I finally managed to visit Colmar in the East of France! The city is known to be one of the top tourist destinations on the Alsace Wine Route. But once you leave the vineyards and the suburbs behind, you will actually enter a very lively old town with colourful half-timbered houses neatly lining cobblestone streets and a canal giving it its reputation of the “Little Venice of Alsace”.

During my visit, Colmar had just gone through a heat wave, which is why the canal’s water level was rather low. In the evening, the town saw crowds of visitors though, dancing and singing on the tunes of the yearly “Fête de la musique”

Weekend Wanderings: Annecy’s Old Town

Thanks to its great location between Europe’s cleanest lake — Lake Annecy — and the snow-capped French Alps, Annecy is a tourist mecca all year long. I visited the “Venice of the Alps” in April this year and followed the canals of the Thiou, one of the shortest rivers of France with a length of ~3.5 km, traversing the Old Town.

Here are some of my personal highlights…
