One Million Places – About Us

Going on a journey, discovering the world, experiencing new things. We are Sandra and Michael from Darmstadt – commuters between full-time jobs and 30 days of vacation per year. There is a lot of wanderlust in between. And that’s why we keep pulling out into the wide or near world. Since 2012 we have already travelled through 68 countries on our smaller and larger holidays and had the crazy idea at the beginning of 2014 to just take a break from our jobs and go on a world tour for 6 months. Since then, we have been blogging with great passion about the countless adventures and stories we experience on our travels. Be it from dreamlike islands, cities of millions, mountain peaks, pure wilderness, cruises or diving in the depths of the oceans. Travelling is our great passion and we love to get to know and write about new countries, places and cultures.




About One Million Places

Our travel blog One Million Places was created as a diary and memory during our world tour. After a lot of positive comments and news about our 540 travel reports and 17.000 pictures have reached us, the blogging has not let us go. Since then, we have been reporting in great detail and authentically about our travels and experiences. We want to give other travelers helpful tips for destinations, flights, hotels, tours and attractions, as well as to inspire new destinations. Our world is so incredibly beautiful and versatile and we want to explore & experience as much of it together as possible. We also report on our travels on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.

Why work with us?

Travel is our great passion and we love to get to know new places. We try to convey this passion in our travel reports by writing about our experiences in great detail and with many photos. We also try to give other travellers helpful tips on how to plan their holidays, because we have noticed for ourselves how difficult it is sometimes to get helpful and detailed travel information about certain holiday destinations. Whether it’s the hotel, the best flights, transfers, food, excursions or special attractions, we try to describe a destination holistically and use our tips and maps to give readers an inspiration for travel planning and new destinations.

“We came across your website when planning our trip – really great!!! Thank you for all the information!”

One Million Places in the media

We are always happy when our blog or travel reports are mentioned in other media and among our cooperation partners. Whether by reposting on Instagram, sharing our posts on Facebook or direct requests for our content. For example, with our video about the pink Amazon river dolphins of Brazil in the show “The 100 Wildest Stories from the Realm of Animals” on RTL. The 360° video of our world tour is published in the travel section of T-Online.de, one of the most wide-ranging news portals in Germany. And rather by chance we had seen that our travelogue for “Swimming with Turtles in Barbados” was shown in the Pro7 program “Galileo Special: Ab ins Warm – Holiday Challenge reloaded”. The show was broadcast on 11.03.2018 and dealt with the topic: “How best to escape the German winter? The travel reporter Cornel Bunz found our travel report for the Caribbean island of Barbados on Google, which of course pleased us. A short video about this can be found here.
