Paulina on the road...

A Travel Blog in English & Español

Welcome to my little Travel Scrapbook about hidden travel gems off the beaten track! All of them are packed in short travel stories in English & Spanish. I'm the happiest when I travel slowly in an eco-friendly way like biking, hiking or boating. Positive side effects are mindfulness and time to interact with foreign cultures. That's why many of my posts focus on an intercultural aspect of traveling. Most of those articles can be found in "Travel Reflections".


Oh, did I introduce myself? I am Pauline from Luxembourg - Paulina for the Spanish - and a passionate travellette currently re-settling down in my native country... after an expedition of a lifetime: Boat HitchHiking over the Atlantic Ocean!


Here your can read more about my quest for the unknown and why I actually write in Spanish and English! My Travel Scrapbook brings you the hidden gems straight from the travel road!


I invite you to lean back and Discover, Learn & Embrace the Unknown!

 Let's hit the road together! - ¡Vámonos de viaje!

To be on the road is about...

Experiencing the unexpected.

Spotting the hidden gems.

Letting go & getting lost.


And it's about finding yourself at the end of the road.

Let me tell you a little secret... There is a hidden design and gourmet gem right on Luxembourg City's most bustling square: Design Hotel Le Place d’Armes.


Rather unimposing from the outside, a paradise for art lovers, architecture enthusiasts and gourmets is hidden inside this former printing house. Who’d know that after passing this inconspicuous little house so many times, that it would hide a veritable little palace?

Spain is one of the hottest travel destinations on this planet. Although it was only in the late 60's when the Spanish tourist industry started to grow as dictator Franco decided to open the country and liberalism started creeping in, Spain is nowadays one of the most visited countries.


Today Spain is ranked second in the world, in terms of being a foreign tourist destination.


With millions of visitors in 2015, it was the third most-visited country in the world.  And with the crisis in several Arab countries, former coveted travel destinations, Spain’s popularity is only growing more.

Where To Stay in Tenerife - The Ultimate Guide

I keep preaching: Tenerife is much more than holiday packages. Unfortunately most people have a kind unflattering image of Tenerife: cheap beach&sun holidays, tipsy young folks from UK, concrete mass constructions and all-you-can-drink sangria parties.


But Tenerife is far more than this. By limiting this little volcanic paradise to the aspects of mass tourism, you'll miss one of Europe's most promising destinations when it comes to natural landscapes and hiking trails.


After living in Tenerife island for several months, I want to show you the best places to stay according to the expectations of your holidays.

Almost 1 year ago I first set a foot on Cape Verde. Through our Boat HitchHiking trip, my partner and I found a boat which sailed from Tenerife via La Gomera to Cape Verde. We originally had planned to cross the Atlantic Ocean straight away. But as usual, life is what happens while we make plans.


That's how we got to discover one of my favorite travel destinations so far: Cape Verde.

One year after visiting Almería capital on my own, I went back to visit one of my fiancé’s numerous cousins. Last year I wished I could have visited the natural park of Cabo de Gata.


But as I was on a backpack/solo trip, I couldn’t find any mean of transportation that could bring me there.


One jump ahead: Cabo de Gata is off the beaten track. Maybe that’s why it was able to preserve its authentic, rough charm and its virgin beaches.
