Uluru Sunset - Matejalicious Travel and Adventure

TRAVEL DESTINATION: Ayers Rock (Uluru), Northern Territory, Australia I've been physically so close to the Red Centre and Ayers Rock for a while now, yet it seems it's always slipped through my fingers. Finally, the timing was just right. I have to believe that. I didn't try to push it, but rather wanted to be ready. To be able to appreciate it more. And after all, I hoped to do it right the first time around, the whole experience, traveling and rolling towards the Uluru. Perhaps I silently didn't...

Gola di Gorropu Gorge - Matejalicious Travel and Adventure

TRAVEL DESTINATION: Gola di Gorropu Gorge, Sardinia, Italy TRAVEL DURATION: One day experienceExploring Gola di Gorropu, Europe's deepest gorge, ended up to be the highlight of my road trip around Sardinia a couple of months ago. Up until then I only visited another gorge in New Zealand that has (besides the smaller proportions) a quite different feel to it. Without a doubt, there is something extraordinary about this particular one in Europe. It made me feel alive, filled me with inexplicable energy and also pushed the expectation bar quite high...

HIKING DESTINATION: Torre del Poetto and Sella del Diavolo, Sardinia, Italy HIKING DURATION: 2-3 hoursDid you ever get lost or couldn't find the way to your planned destination or landmark while traveling and exploring new horizons? Did you need to turn around on a whale watching excursion the very last minute because the ocean all-of-a-sudden became too rough, and at the same time watched another boat just leaving? Yeah, that weather element. It probably ends up getting most of the blame with travelers. Does it sound familiar? The thing is,...

Rocce Rosse Sardinia - Matejalicious Travel and Adventure

TRAVEL DESTINATION: East Coast of Sardinia, Italy, Europe TRAVEL DURATION: 1 WeekA week in Sardinia is not enough. That's something I realized when I started planning and pinning the map with all the places I would love to see and things I would like to do. Realistically, all those pins weren't going to happen in the time frame I had set aside for exploring the island. Focusing on the east coast for my first trip to Sardinia seemed like an obvious choice when I took a closer look at all...

Long Bay Sunrise - Matejalicious Travel and Adventure

TRAVEL / PHOTOGRAPHY DESTINATION: East Coast Bays, North Shore, Auckland, New ZealandLately, I've spent quite a few of the autumn mornings creating photos around different beaches of the East Coast Bays. I guess I had to go through a jet lag to appreciate mornings and morning photography. I mean, I've loved early mornings since forever. That's usually the time everyone else still sleeps and the world seems to be all mine. I've always felt quite privileged when being up super early. To actually wake up, well, that's the whole...

There's really no need to follow our own healthy guidelines while taking a vacation, but rather indulge all the way, right? Is it really such a good idea to let go of all...
