    Travel Diary: quick stopover in Pisa (1-night stay) fast sightseeing!

    Read here about my quick stopover in Pisa. When in Pisa, you don’t necessarily have to be quick. Simply because there isn’t that much to see… Apologies for turning down your expectations for a visit to Pisa in Italian Tuscany, but there really isn’t that much on offer. The main attraction definitely is the Leaning […]

However, not a classic car tester test drive, but rather to take a closer look at the car’s suitability for everyday use. How comfortable is it not to have a start button anymore, do you have […]

    Travel Diary: 15 minutes in Budweis / České Budějovice

    If you’ve ever heard about Budweis, the first thing you’ll think about will be probably one thing: Beer. Well, that’s no big surprise as the Czech Republic is any way home to many beer-loving people, but more precisely České Budějovice is the home of the very famous beer brand Budweiser Budvar. In the US better […]

    Travel Diary: 1 hour in Bad Wörishofen, Bavarian Allgäu

    Bad Wörishofen is a small Town in the Bavarian Allgäu. Situated in between Munich and Ulm it lays just a few kilometers off the Autobahn A96. Therefore it’s a perfect spot to rest if you don’t want to relax at motorway rest stops. Personally I absolutely prefer to drive a few kilometers on country roads […]

    Travel Diary: 1 Day Trip to Liverpool

    The wind was blowing so hard in Liverpool, I could barely move forward, not even one tiny step at a time. It was definitely not a perfect day for a walk by the water near the Albert Dock. So, back to the City! A Day Trip to a foreign city is always a great opportunity […]

    Picture Diary: Ibiza Port d’Eivissa in the afternoon in September

    One afternoon in Ibiza. My 18 hours in Ibiza needed to be spent wisely, therefore I did as much as achievable, but also enjoyed every second to the possible fullest. Even if I just sat at a Café for a few minutes, watching people around me, feeling incredible joy for being able to wear a […]

    Travel Diary: 48 hours in Adelaide, Australia

    48 hours in Adelaide, what a whirlwind of a Trip this has been! Right after landing with the inaugural flight by Qatar Airways from Doha to Adelaide, I took the Airport Express Bus to the City Centre. The Route wasn’t really scenic, but I could already get the first glimpse of Australia. The sun was […]

    Travel Diary: St. Gallen in Winter

    Depending on the season, Cities can turn into something completely different. In Summer 2015 I visited St. Gallen in Switzerland for the first time. The sun was shining like there was no tomorrow and it was just boiling hot. Yes, also in Switzerland there is summer! Back then I was more or less rushing from […]

    Travel Diary: Afternoon in Meersburg at Lake Constance

    Meersburg is a small town with just about 5300 inhabitants at the northern shores of Lake Constance in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Even though I grew up not far from Meersburg it’s been a few years since I last visited this town. Meersburg is mainly known for its old castle, in which German poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff […]

  • Travel Diary: 2 hours in Palma, Majorca

    Travel Diary: 2 hours in Palma, Majorca

    Exploring Palma, the capital of the Balearic island of Majorca, felt very nice. The atmosphere of the City was like a mix of Venice and some Spanish small town to me. Nice and old architecture, nice restaurants and shops and the nice feeling that most cities next to the water with harbors and tourists have. […]

    Travel Diary: Cala D’Or & Cala Ferrera / Majorca

    Cala D’Or is a village on the eastern coast of the Balearic Island of Majorca. Cala D’Or means golden Cove and ‘golden’ is definitely a good description for the beautiful bays in this area. More than 60km from Palma the area is popular with tourists, but not the ‘typical Majorca Tourists‘. At the end of […]

    Travel Diary: 2 hours in Offenburg, Southern Germany

    Offenburg in southern Germany surprised me this past weekend – what a beautiful city! Just 20 km east of Straßbourg in France you should visit Offenburg, the administrative capital of the Ortenaukreis. From the Train Station, that is quite big for this 58.000 inhabitant City; you can walk to the city centre within a few […]

    Travel Diary: Antalya Old Town and Old Harbor

    A Walk to Antalya Old Town and Old Harbor is always recommended, may it be in the late evening or to go shopping. Or plan a little more time if you’re on the way to catch a sightseeing boat. Not only because of all the shops and spices to discover, the streets are small and […]

    Travel Diary: Antalya in the rain

    Antalya in the rain is still beautiful. Visiting a City when it rains can suck, or you can embrace it and enjoy the empty streets. As the temperatures are in summer still hot enough, when it rains, you can easily walk around in your T-Shirt and Shorts. But of course, don’t be too naked if […]
