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 […]

Driving along the Syrian border

I learned a lot during my ten days in Lebanon. In hardly any corner of the world it is more interesting to see how culture, politics, religion and language define a people. How a country unites as well as tears apart over these issues. The people are so proud […]

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 […]

Malaysian Memories

This trip happened a long long time ago. It was the summer that we graduated from school and I just can’t get my head around the fact that that’s almost three years ago. After lots of parties in London, hopping around European capitals, relaxing days in […]

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 […]

Swiss Adventures

A good friend of mine just started a blog (bohemianblackbird.wordpress.com go check it out) and it’s all about how lucky we are to have such a wonderful life filled with adventures, travelling, neuer Bekanntschaften and doing what we love. He just published his first post from Dubai […]

Black and Whites from Italy

Almost every photo I took in Tuscany was dipped into this amazing golden light. Which of course makes it fun and easy to photograph, but there’s only that many pictures of landscapes and sunsets before you get bored of it. So I decided to, every now and […]

Roadtrippin through Tuscany

Pienza, Siena, Buonconvento, Montepulciano, Montealcino, Florence… the list of beautiful cities and villages to visit is endless. We’ve got our few favourite spots that we go to every single summer, like this one restaurant in Pienza with the best Pici with wild boar ragout – one […]

La Dolce Vita – Toscana 2014

My family spends almost every summer in Tuscany. It’s the most beautiful and relaxing holiday and it’s kind of everyone’s highlight of summer. Our days in Tuscany are all about time for family & friends but also time for yourself. It’s as if time stands still in this lonely […]

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 […]

Climbing Großvenediger

Tyrol is probably the most traditional and untouched region of Austria. Friendly people with a strong dialect (which is challenging even for a fellow Austrian),  lush green meadows or lots of snow and massive mountains – basically the all-American vision of Austria. Sound of Music, happy cows and all […]

Lombok, Indonesia

Indonesia comprises more than 13,000 islands and Lombok is one of them. It is close to Bali and also similar in size, but it is nowhere near as touristy as Bali. Bali is crowded & busy, every single piece of free land is used for bars, […]
