A perfect combo: travel & fashion

What not many of us are considering when travelling is fashion. But there are a few of us (more likely ladies) who see traveling as an opportunity to try out nice outfits. Fashion can be a way where we get to express our personality and feel as a completely new person, and traveling does just that.

Flyingfoxy: “Be open to new destinations”

In this interview series, we have Katrin, also known as Flyingfoxy by her growing number of social media followers, who gladly is going to share a glimpse of her personal travel experience from around the world and also provide us some of her best recommendations.

---------------------------------------

Tell us a bit about yourself and how long are you working as a flight attendant? Why did you pick this job?

My name is Katrin, I am 30 years old and working as a flight attendant for Lufthansa since almost 3 years now. I was working as a product manager in the fashion industry before, but came to a point when I realized that this is not
the life I want to live. I needed a change to something that would give back to me more than just some money at the end of the month. I wanted to so something that has to to do with traveling even more and being more flexible and free, also when it comes to responsibilities and pressure. So I decided to apply at Lufthansa and became a flight attendant!
Working in the job now I can combine many things that are important to me as traveling all the time, meeting many new people, discovering food trend, my hobby photography and writing my travel blogs. I have much more time than before and can plan my life more flexible and spontaneous even though I don’t earn much money.

---------------------------------------

What are your favorite destinations and what you love the most about them?

That’s a tough question. ☺ There are so many amazing and beautiful places and countries around the world! But my favorite country is South Africa. This is a place where I can imagine moving some day and spending my life!
It’s the combination of everything: the weather, the countryside, the Architecture, the wine business, the quality of the food and the price level of everything you need! Every time I travel there I am always in a good mood and enjoy every day to the fullest! My dream is to run a guesthouse with a little café attached there, building a family and own some animals.
In my opinion everyone should travel to this breathtaking place at least once in their life! I have many travel reports about South Africa on my blog www.flyingfoxy.com and I think only the pictures speak for themselves!

---------------------------------------

What type of activities you like doing when travelling and why?

When I am travelling I am an explorer. I love to see and discover as many new things and places as possible. Mostly I do lots of research in advance, as anticipation for me is almost just as nice as the travelling itself! I use
social media as Pinterest, Instagram and the blogs of other travel bloggers to get inspirations about new destinations and what I can do there. I love original coffeeshops that serve good coffee and strolling through local markets. That’s what I definetly do every time I am travelling. I love to get a car and combine city trips with excursions in the surroundings. I always want to see as much as possible at every place I am going to. Also to write good and helpful content for the readers of my travel blog www.flyingfoxy.com

---------------------------------------

What is your favorite cuisine and what place serves your best dish?

Well, as I am definitely what you would call a “foodie” I love ALL kind of food! Food is for me one of the most important parts, when travelling! Trying new local dishes and products and exploring foreign cuisines. Countries that always serve the best food for me are Italy and Vietnam. Whatever you pick from the menu, it can’t get wrong! Foodpoprn at its
best!

---------------------------------------

What would be your best recommendation for those who love traveling?

Oh, there are so many…
Be open for new destinations! Even if you don’t know anyone who has been there already! Make your own experiences!

Follow some good travel bloggers and use all the options for inspirations and research we have nowadays! We live in a time where we can jump on an airplane and fly to any country within a only a few hours! We should use these possibilities the best we can and explore as many beautiful places on earth we can! Working as a flight attendant is very helpful, doing this! ☺

I love finding accommodations on Airbnb. You get in touch with locals much easier and only they know the real insider tips you need to get an unforgettable time! Try to find original accommodations beside the huge hotel chains and live inbetween the local people, wherever you go! Always had the best times using Airbnb!

Try to travel on your own at least once! For me it was such a new and inspiring experience of having a good time, even if I was afraid of being all on my own at a foreign place! But it turned out to be the best thing ever! It is such a different way of travelling and enjoying special moments with your own. Just let yourself flow without discussing with others! For me travelling on my own is the best way to breathe and let my thoughts become clear again!

Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle: A fairy Tale

The best way to experience the taste of a fairy tale is to actually visit the Neuschwanstein castle. Surrounded by the Alps and situated on the top of a cliff, you will feel like living back in time, immersed in a magical land. This is how actually Jessica Mai felt when she visited the Neuschwanstein Castle with her friends as part of her layover in Munich.

How to get the Neuschwanstein Castle

The castle is almost 90 mins driving from Munich. You can book a tour online to pick you up from your hotel or any other location. The journey to the castle is captivating, the Bavarian scenery is truly vivid.

The tickets can be purchased when you arrive at the premises. 

What you need to know

If you are planning to visit this fairy tale castle any time soon, you should definitely do it but to make the most of it take into account the following:

  • It is best advised to be there early. So you can avoid huge crowds of tourists and the endless queues to the entrance;
  • You are not allowed to go in whenever you want. There are tours every half hour in different languages.
  • Once you are in, you are not allowed to take pictures. However the interior of the castle is breathtaking and is worthed.
  • The tour guides are quiet quick. So you can’t wonder around at your own pace but you will learn a lot about the fascinating story of castle.

A bit of history…

The castle was built under the reign of King Ludwig II and it was meant to be used as a personal refuge.

The king got to spend only 11 nights in the castle as he suddenly he passed away.

The construction started in 1869 and stopped in 1886, immediately after the king’s death. A large part of the castle is still not finished until today.

The king had a particular love for swans. Thus most of the interior designs of the castle are highly influenced by the shape and beauty of swans.

 

If you visited the castle already, what did you like the most about it?

La Sultana Marrakech: Moroccan Delight

Did you ever wish of escaping somewhere out of this world? Reading all about Ji Kim's experience in La Sultana, made us jealous and wish we could go there tomorrow.

By simply looking at the photos you will understand why.

 

A luxurious and relaxing escape in La Sultana

La Sultana is a luxurious spa resort situated in the heart of Marrakech city. Marrakech means 'Land of God' and is one of the oldest cities in Morocco. 

Once you step in La Sultana, you will forget about anything happening outside those walls. Everything is mesmerising, from the interior decor, local cuisine and spa treatments to their customer service and attention to detail. 

This Arabian delight can be the ideal relaxing escape, either if you decide to try it out with your group of friends or make it a special romantic escape with your loved one. It is something different and unique. The best time to visit Marrakech is between mid March to May and then September to November. This is when the weather is at its best.

According to Ji, you must try out the early bird breakfast and then breakfast by the pool. The food not only looks amazing but it tastes heavenly. And by looking at these pictures I couldn't agree any less.

La Sultana should definitely be on your travelling list.
