We’re Kati and Sabrina, an Austrian and an American couple who met in San Francisco, lived together in Germany, and are now roaming the world together. We’re active travelers who love to hike, drink wine, go on road trips and learn about new places. Wherever we go, we seek out local experiences and cultural understanding. We created this site to help you plan your next trip and to document the best culinary hiking destinations in the world. We’re not into counting the countries we’ve been to. We’re into traveling at our own pace – sometimes fast, sometimes slow – and following our curiosities.
We’re here to help
We launched this website in November 2017 in order to chronicle where we’ve been and what we’ve learned so that we can help you plan an unforgettable trip. That’s why we take a lot of time to thoughtfully craft travel guides for countries, cities, and regions we’ve explored. These guides are designed to help you familiarize yourself with a new destination and discover the “not-so-obvious” things to experience there. We won’t give you a list of attractions to check-off, unless we’re head-over-heels in love with them. Here are some of our favorite travel guides: Cologne (City), Algarve (Region), Iceland (Country), Germany (Country), and Thailand (Country). We really hope that our guides and blogs will help you whether you’re planning a weekend getaway, taking a vacation, or traveling indefinitely.
Culinary Hiking Trails
As a couple, we have two great shared loves: food and hiking. And when paired together, we’re in heaven. In the last few years, we’ve developed a love for hiking for food. We can appreciate the experience of hauling your own meals up a mountain. But how glorious is it to reward yourself with a delicious feast during a hike – one that you didn’t have to prepare? Or go on a wine tasting hike? As we travel the world, we’re actively seeking out the best culinary hiking trails and sharing them on this site. Some of our favorite culinary hiking destinations are Appenzellerland (Switzerland), the Dolomites (Italy), and the Ahr Valley (Germany). Learn more about our favorite Culinary Hiking Trails.
Why Moon & Honey?
Our name, Moon & Honey Travel, is a play on honeymoon. When we were on our first trip together in Norway (basically our 3rd date), Sabrina said “this really feels like a honeymoon.” And then, on subsequent trips, we kept joking that we were on our second (Puglia) and third (Kauai) honeymoon. We’ve lost count. But, we’re still “honeymooning” and determined to keep the honey and the moon in our travels. So, that seemed like the appropriate name for our travel site.
