Iran #1

A year ago we traveled around Iran for two weeks. It was an intense, tightly-packed schedule as we tried to see as much as we could in so little time of a country that is five times the size of Germany and has a lot […]

Cuba #7 – Magical Havana

Havana is a city like no other. The colonial architecture, the music, the busy street life, the colours, the cigar dealers, the cars – it is uniquely beautiful. We spent many days just wandering about the streets of Centro Habana, which I preferred 100% to the touristy […]

Schönes schönes Istanbul

Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar and Süleymaniye Mosque – the sightseeing continues on day three. It was a really hot day for all the sightseeing and we weren’t exactly alone but it was stunning anyway! V. and me spent more than three hours getting lost in the many […]

Istanbul Day Two

Even though V. and me are very serious about our sightseeing, there’s always enough time to sleep in. After all we’re here for five days! A juicy fruit breakfast from the local shop followed by a quick espresso and we were good to go. First, a […]

Nice to meet you, Istanbul!

I don’t know why my sister and me have never travelled together before. Just the two of us. We’ve been raised to travel and visit foreign countries the same way. Not only have we learned to appreciate the same things but we also have the same idea […]

Lebanese Snapshots

This post is a collection of random snapshots I took during my time in Lebanon. Momentaufnahmen is how I like refer to them. Many were taken from the car, some are blurry, some are wanky, none of them edited. I’m finding it very difficult to put […]

Lebanon – the melting pot for everything

After an intense day of sightseeing in Beiteddine, my second day in Lebanon was very relaxed with a bit of beach and a bit of culture. We took the car up North from Beirut, along the seaside road until we reached the many beach clubs of Batroun. There is a very […]

Welcome to Lebanon!

Two of my best friends in London are twins, a boy and a girl, originally from Beirut. My engineering crew had been talking about a trip to Lebanon for a while. But as always, talks hardly ever turn into plans with people as busy as […]

First Impressions of Lisbon

So I just came back from five wonderful sunny days in Lisbon. Our short but sweet holidays came exactly at the right time of year – we were all sick of university, courseworks seemed relatively relaxed and London was cold and windy. There was nothing […]

The Velodrome

This is just a little post filled with architecture and a ridiculous sunset. The second year of my degree has been very un-stimulating so far, but Chris Wise is one of the few professors who makes me wanna stay in Civil Engineering and reminds me of why I […]

Sunrise Over Tuscany

Tuscany is probably the most photogenic place I’ve ever been to. You basically can’t take a bad photograph. My sister and me love to sleep with our windows wide open as there is absolutely no noise or light coming from the outside, nothing but fresh […]

Wiedermal Berlin

I just came back from a weekend in Berlin where I met some good old friends from my time in boarding school in Germany. Everyone of us has spread their wings and we are now all over the place, from Mongolia to Sweden, London to Berlin. My ex-roommate also […]

Out and About in Hong Kong

Before heading to Bali, I stopped by Hong Kong for one night to drop off some luggage at my best friend’s house. After a crazy month of backpacking through Indonesia, I returned to HK – and this time I stayed. Traveling by myself was such an amazing […]
