Hi there! Welcome to chapter fernweh, where our wanderlust guides us through the charming tapestries of Europe’s capitals and their surrounding wonders. Initially we were focused on unearthing all the hidden gems in Central and Eastern Europe, because I, Kiki, found my heart drawn to the captivating allure of the Balkans. From the picturesque landscapes of Croatia to the enchanting corners of Slovenia, my love for this region grew exponentially with each visit. As every traveler knows, our journey is never a solo one. That’s why I have brought in my girl Jazzie to be my partner in travel and help me out! With an editorial prowess and a family tree that traces back to a Slovenian grandmother, Jazzie brings her unique zest and perspectives to our shared dream.

In 2021, we decided to collaborate with 50 beautiful and unique holiday escapes in our own backyard, the Netherlands. We made our way through the ins and outs of this country, documenting these fantastic locations. After falling head over hills for vacations in our own country, we are more than proud to share our journey with you!

With time, our wanderlust knew no bounds. And so, we decided to take on an even grander quest on the side – a journey through all the vibrant capitals and their hidden gems across Europe. Our mission? To unwrap the fascinating layers of each destination, ignite fellow wanderers’ imaginations, and rediscover ourselves as we embrace the mysteries of our thirties.
