Translated from the German version of this article.

The anticipation for your upcoming vacation is rising: Sun, summer, sand and sea aren’t far away! If course, we don’t usually associate the best season of the year with illness or injury. But be careful: If you want a worry-free start to your vacation, and to stay healthy on your trip, it’s important to give some thought in advance to vaccinations, insurance and so on. We’ve summarized the most important points for you.

Even though there are only mandatory vaccinations for a handful of vacation destinations, you should still start dealing with this issue sooner rather than later. In almost any major city, you can get advice from private physicians or government travel centers. Depending on the type of travel, itinerary and duration of your stay, you’ll be recommended specific vaccinations. Read More »

Translated from German version of the article.

Over thousands and millions of years, nature has used its impressive strength to craft majestic rock formations: Mountains that look like stacked pancakes, rock windows through which you can look out at the open sea, gigantic canyons and hills reminiscent of chocolate. Today we’ll take you on a journey to the most impressive rock formations on earth.

Twelve Apostles, Australia

Along the Great Ocean Road in southern Australia, you’ll come across these majestic, limestone cliffs that rise out of the ocean up to 60 meters high. They were created by the erosive power of the sea, which is also responsible for the slow, gradual erosion of the pillars.

This article is presented to you by EHIC.


Road trips may be a quintessentially American tradition, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t make the most out of it on the long and winding roads of Europe. In fact, Europe has some of the most incredible road trips in the world, with long drives offering incredible scenery for anyone with the time to take the long way round. So what are you waiting for? Pack your passport, camera and EHIC card, and get yourself behind the wheel – it’s time to hit the road.


1. The Autobahn, Germany

We cannot start a list of the top road trips in Europe without the Autobahn taking pride of place. With astounding views of the countryside from the bottom of snow-capped mountains and no speed limit outside of the urban areas, the Autobahn is one of the ultimate destinations for anyone looking to clock their top speed.

2. Amalfi Coast, Italy

Not only is southern Italy one of the best places to take a summer holiday, but it’s one of the best places to go road-tripping in Europe. The Amalfi Coast offers drivers the unique feeling of driving back in time, exploring beautiful architecture from a bygone age as if you were Marty McFly yourself. This seaside route is not to be missed.

Literally the Troll Route, the Trollstigen is famously one of the most scenic drives in all of Europe. With a selection of both mountains and waterfalls to enjoy, the Trollstigen is the place to go if you want to see the beauty of Norway from behind the wheel. Read More »


Finally an end to the wild-goose chase: route planner and “near me” function in the tripwolf app

It’s not an easy task to manage your time while traveling: particularly on short trips, time is an especially precious commodity.

On the hunt for the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot to check your emails for that big upcoming project, and who doesn’t have that one friend who needs to find a bathroom every 10 minutes?




This hopeless wandering around is something we’re well acquainted with. That’s why we wanted to make your search for an ATM, pharmacy, etc, a whole lot easier – so we equipped our tripwolf travel guides with two new functions: the “Near me now” function and route planning!

“Near me now”: With just a touch of your smartphone, you can immediately see where to find services for your everyday needs like drinking water, Wi-Fi, post offices, car sharing, and many more, right in our travel guide. All this information can be reduced to a specific radius, and when you’re headed to a certain location, you can display the most convenient route in the route planner!

Route planner: The route planning function can also be used independently of other functions. For each entry in the tripwolf travel guides, you can now display the quickest route from your current location, and select whether you’re traveling by foot, bicycle, or car (this function will be expanded soon).






Try it out for yourself in the app, and let us know what you think – we’re looking forward to your feedback!

Have a nice trip!

This article is brought to you by Guatemala resorts.


Guatemala City (Also known as Guate) is the capital of the Republic of Guatemala, it also boasts as its biggest city of Guatemala and is a popular tourist destination for those planning a vacation in Central America, based on a small stretch underneath Mexico and opposite Cuba. As well as the superb weather, there is also plenty of sights to see for those amazing photo opportunities. Below we list three of the top places you can visit when staying in the numerous Guatemala resorts to guarantee you a fun packed vacation in this exciting and beautiful city.


Museo Miraflores

The Museo Miraflores is an archaeological museum that displays artifacts from the ancient Maya city of Kaminaljuyu, for those non-speaking tourists everything is also shown in English. It is a treasure trove of everything relating to the Mayan culture and spans two large floors. Admission is approximately $5 US and provides ample opportunities for photographs with genuine Mayan artifacts. As well as the opportunity to explore the history of the Mayan culture, the museum is also located next to two large shopping centers so you can also incorporate a little holiday shopping at the same time.


Palacio Nacional de la Cultura

This presidential palace is located next to Parque Central and is one of the most impressive structures of its kind in the city. Whilst the current palace (The third to occupy this site) is fairly modern having been constructed in the 1930s-1940s it is no less impressive and is now open as a museum allowing tourists to take guided tours which are available in English. Again there are plenty of photo opportunities and one of the attractions of the palace is the styles of architecture that spans from the earlier styles of the Spanish Renaissance to Neoclassical.


La Aurora Zoo

This Zoo is located in the heart of Guatemala City and is a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets, one of the most attractive parts of this zoo is the abundant flowers and landscaping of the zoo grounds that makes this a most relaxing and calming environment to visit as well as provide some great photographs to take back home and show your friends. There are also plenty of shops and cafes nearby should you want to take in more of the city as well. These are just three places that are worth a visit when staying in Guatemala City, there are also day trips to the nearby Volcano, various activities such as the canopy zipline tour. Whatever you plan we recommend that you only book with a trusted tour operator and make sure you take plenty of sun cream.

Norman Peires’ Top Cape Town Tips

Filed under general

As a child growing up in Cape Town, the city was always a place that people from Johannesburg would visit. They would come in the first week of December and leave by mid January – and that was the season. Which suited us just fine, as we Capetonians would then get the beaches to ourselves for the rest of the summer. These days, however, the story is very different. Cape Town is the number one tourist destination in Africa, with an international season that runs all year round – and the city I love has evolved into a truly global destination. Relaxed, beautiful, reliably hot in summer and with no jet lag involved thanks to a 1-2 hour time zone difference depending on the season (from Europe), it’s a perfect holiday destination for everyone from families to independent travelers.

I probably shouldn’t be encouraging you – I’d still like the beaches to myself! In any case, here are my top tips for first-time visitors to the Mother City…


High life

The city sits in one of the most beautiful natural situations in the world, overlooked by the iconic Table Mountain. The mountain itself has remained eternally impressive through the years, but the number of people heading up it has certainly changed in the past 20 years. The rotating cable car that takes you to the top is ten times the size it was – once it would take 15 people, now it’s more like 100 each trip. The five-minute ride to the top should be on every Cape Town itinerary, rewarding you with wonderful views of Cape Town, Robben Island and the Peninsula from the top.




Picnic or visit the restaurant, while you watch the wildlife in the National Park – you’ve got plenty of time as the cable cars are every 10-15 minutes and finish at 9.30pm in the summer. Or if you’re really daring you can even abseil off the top of the mountain when you’re ready to get down. Read More »

Explore London’s most extraordinary sights

London is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. Every year over 16 million tourists visit the British capital. But if you want to get off the beaten path from the usual tourist spots such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace or the Tower Bridge, your first stop should be www.couporando.co.uk, where you’ll find top-notch information and travel vouchers that can have you on the way to an extraordinary London experience in no time!

Smallest Police Station

Just about every visitor to London makes a stop a Trafalgar Square. Whether you realize it or not, on your way through you’ll pass by the smallest police station in London. At the corner of Trafalgar Square / Charing Cross Road, the small stone cabin seems more like a telephone box or even a public toilet. This one-man police station used to serve as an observation point, to keep things under control in what was then known as “Mob Square.”

Shakespeare in Carnaby Street

Shakespearean statues and monuments are a dime a dozen in London, but one of the most charming can be found in the Great Marlborough Street 29. From a small window above the pub called “The Shakespeare’s Head” the playwright and poet looks out poetically at the tourist crowd below. Allegedly, the founders of the pub, Thomas and John Shakespeare, were distantly related to the famous bard – but who knows if this is true, or just great fiction. Read More »
