“We don’t go on holidays; we travel!”
Hello, and welcome to my website. Thanks for visiting. My name is Agnes, and I’m based in Dubai since 2020. The Covid pandemic has thrown my regular job as an airlines pilot in Europe into disarray, so I moved to Dubai in late 2020 and am now using my passion for all things travel as a TC.
I was fortunate to grow up with parents that are avid travellers. They have brought us to all sorts of corners of the world since me and my siblings were very young. No holiday did ever involve staying in the same place for long. My dad would always say, “we don’t go on holidays, we travel” :-) And with that in mind, he showed us the difference between the two. It’s about experiencing a new country, a new culture, new people and languages, and different landscapes. To broaden our horizon with what else is out there apart from what we knew from our lovely home in southern Germany. After school, I moved to Ireland and became a pilot. 15 years in Ireland, but to this day, I travel with my parents at least once a year.
I have many favourite places I have visited and a long list of places I yet want to see. Depending on my travel companion, whether it’s my parents or my husband or friends, the reasons vary. I will try and give you some examples:
Iceland in the winter is breathtaking. The icy cold, the pure force of waterfalls and geysers, and the steam of a natural spring tucked in behind a hill, with not a person in sight.
Vietnam….beautifully mad! Unbelievable landscapes, so foreign to us. The Hussle and Bustle of Hanoi, the food and the culture. But most of all, some of the nicest people I have ever met.
And finally, Italy! Still one of my favourite countries to visit. From the Alps in the north to the beaches along its eastern and western coast, the food and the welcoming people. Combine it with a Vespa trip through the vineyards and you’re in heaven, no matter what part of Italy you’re in.
I could go on and on. If you would like to experience a country, be it by car, scooter, bike, horse or kayak, get in touch, and together I hope that we can create the perfect travel experience for you and your family.
Looking forward to meeting you soon.

A trip with mum & dad was well overdue. After a lot of back and forth and not knowing where to go and what to do, we found a true hidden gem……a little wormhole back in time. So in late August 2021, I flew to Frankfurt to meet my parents. Collected in the car, packed with bikes we headed for Lower Saxony, a county in the northwest of Germany, full of castles and medieval time treasures. This is the birthplace of the Brothers Grimm, known for taking down the most famous fairytales in the world. From Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Rapunzel,...

We were lucky to be on one of the first flights to Athens when Greece opened its borders to travelers from Dubai. A few more admin bits to do before travel, but I think we will all quickly get accustomed to having a vaccine cert, a PCR test and/or a Passenger Locator Form. All in order, the process through arrivals in Athens was surprisingly speedy. Out into the Mediterranean sun and into a taxi.....let’s go! The Metro is a very efficient way of transport into the city, but I like taking a taxi after arriving in a country, as you...

So Seychelles weren’t really on my radar until I got engaged in January. After a lovely proposal on top of Mt Al Rabi in Khor Fakkan, my now-husband and I decided that, rather than wait for Covid restrictions to lift and wedding party backlogs to clear at home, we may as well just get married now. Within a week, we organized our mini-wedding in Seychelles. PCR tests are done, entry permission received, we boarded the flight. The minute I stepped off the plane in Seychelles, I knew I will be coming back. We travelled in late January, which meant we...

As I haven't had the pleasure to visit the Maldives yet (it's a long bucket list), I asked one of my good friends to tell me about her recent trip and share it here. Thanks, here it goes: My partner and I travelled to the Maldives the week before Christmas as a birthday celebration trip. We had always wanted to go, and as it was very accessible even with Covid restrictions we saw it as the ideal opportunity for this luxurious trip! We were spoiled for choice when choosing a hotel. However, after much deliberation, we chose Varu, by Atmosphere and I...

My husband and me were contemplating where to go for a few days off in February. I wanted somewhere warm. Well…….we chose the complete opposite. Iceland in the winter! But what a great choice it was. We only had 5 days, so it was a compact itinerary, but Iceland offers a great opportunity to get some of the major sites in during a short stay. Plus, at minus 10-15 degrees Celsius, you probably don’t want to stay for 2 weeks. We landed into Iceland’s main Airport, Keflavik, just outside the island’s capital. To get around for the few days, we...

In May 2019, Italy was calling. My husband and I met in Rome and spent 2 days exploring the city first, before heading into the countryside for some Vespa driving and wine tasting. Rome is a beautiful, buzzing city with plenty to eat and drink, always followed by gelato, of course. We stayed in a small boutique hotel, only a 10min walk from the colosseum. It was an old narrow townhouse, with wooden beams and big 4 post beds……There was no front desk and no breakfast. But anytime I stay in a country known for its coffee, I don’t book...

Thanks for helping me plan a wildly spontaneous trip during Covid and changing those said plans 10x because of restrictions, country closures, visa issues etc. We have been set up in such amazing places right next to everything we need. And even got a stylish room change when I added a travel buddy last minute.
