currently in Slovenia





Katja, Charlie, Lu (12), Mila (3) and baby Leo. A Slovenian – French – German family, that likes to spend its free time actively in nature. We especially enjoy hiking, (wild) camping, cycling and winter sports, but from time to time we treat ourselves to big city trips and tropical holidays too. Cooking, gardening and being creative is also our thing. Overland travel is our biggest passion and we try to do it as sustainably as possible. After 11 years abroad, we live in Kranjska Gora with Mila & Leo, while Lu lives and goes to school in Germany.

Travel stories from 60+ countries on 6 continents and notes about road trips, overlanding with Leni the Landy, backpacking, hiking, camping, winter sports, beach holidays, authentic cultural & unique experiences, sustainable travel and more. City guides, itinerary & planning ideas, practical information about local food, transport, accommodation & costs. Also focusing on family travel inspiration, sharing destination ideas and useful tips for travelling with kids, including thoughts & personal experiences about traveling as a single mom.

In 2021 we moved to Slovenia and found our home base in the municipality of Kranjska Gora, where Katja spent a good portion of her childhood. We are currently renovating an older house in Rateče, where we will soon start a new business chapter under the name Maison Lenka. Surrounded by hills and beautiful nature, we can no longer imagine family life in a city where the pace of life is significantly faster and we are really grateful for this green idyll of ours between the Julian Alps and Karavanke mountains.
