My Trip to Zanzibar – An Instagram Diary


Oh Zanzibar, I miss you. Already. One week was not enough. I know, I know, it was my decision and I really wasn’t sure if I would get bored if I would stay two weeks there. Alone. On my own. How wrong I was. If there would have been any chance I would have stayed longer… at least one more week!

The first days I stayed in Stonetown, got lost many many times in the narrow alleys and took thousand of pictures of doors.

Then I went to Kendwa, to the beach. To one of the whitest, finest beaches ever.

After one week my time in paradise was over. And although I really don’t like flying my flight back to Germany was one of the best flights ever. With views like this:

Disclosure: My flight to Zanzibar was sponsored by Condor. 


Hi, I'm Yvonne. Travel addict. Guilty as charged. Right now I'm probably falling off a camel somewhere in a desert, getting a new tattoo from a monk in Thailand or am carrying my luggage through a river in the jungle. But just as well I could be sitting on my sofa in Berlin, in my pyjamas. Good girls to to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. Everywhere sounds much more promising. So be travelous and follow me!

  1. how exciting! I’m looking forward to the video– I would love to visit the cockpit for landing some day !
    lovely instagram pictures all in all- the sahara from above looks stunning.

  2. Awww, looks wonderful. Love the photo of the fishermen. I can’t believe how clear the water is! Seriously considering going now. Is there anything else to do in Zanzibar apart from beach bumming by the way? Can you recommend any activities or tours?
