Europe

Mini-holiday at the Tauern Spa

By

I spent a couple of days in Tauern Spa – and this is how wonderful it was Barely a month ago I boarded a plane in Edmonton and flew home after exactly eight months of living abroad. Eight months seemed like an eternity in the beginning, and I also struggled with myself, whether or not I made the right decision. I am still a little torn whether a semester at an university in Europe would have been sufficient too. On the other hand, I enjoyed my travels and diving very much. What’s done is done though.  In any case, I…

Majorca – what to do besides hardcore partying

By

Majorca – what to do besides hardcore partying I don’t what it is like where you are from but here people interrelate Majorca with drinking and partying it up in Magaluf. This is such a shame and it even saddens me a little. Majorca has so much to offer and that’s why I spent 10 days there in August and took a look around for you. We stayed at a gorgeous little Casita close to Petra. Petra is a great starting point for trips around the island as it is right in the center of Majorca. We also saved a…

Stockholm Metro – (nearly) every Station an Artwork

By

Stockholm Metro – (nearly) every station is an artwork For most people, public transportation isn’t exciting, maybe even boring. Grey, unexciting, functional and cold. Vienna has some stunning historic metro stations and Prague has a few artsy metro station too. And anyone who looks further north will inevitably draw attention to the metro of Stockholm. A few stations were redone in the 50s and don’t resemble other stations in other cities at all. Stockholm definitely has its on style. The Guardian named Stockholms metro the longest art gallery in the world. The city of Stockholm didn’t just install a couple of sculptures and…

In a Sportster through Salzburg and Tyrol – adrenalin and relaxation included

In a Sportster through Salzburg and Tyrol – adrenalin and relaxation included With the motto „getting to know your own country“ I set off on a mission to explore our beautiful Austria even more. In the beginning of December, I jumped into my Sportster en route to a region I have known for a long time – Salzburg and Tyrol. But there are still loads of new things to discover. We stayed in a small village called Fieberbrunn and did day trips from there: For the foodies – “Hut essen” Have you heard about this strange tradition? I first heard…

Psst Warsaw – That Time I was the Testimonial of Warsaw

By

That time I was the Testimonial of Warsaw Some of you may already know that I was invited to be Warsaw’s testimonial for their most recent campaign. Therefore I travelled to the gorgeous Polish capital and explored it a bit on my own. Surely I haven’t seen it all (can you?) and already wish to go back asap. But I did have some tasty and mouth-watering food 😉 So here it is and I’m super proud and honoured having had this opportunity and experience! Let me know what you think about it in the comments below!

Warsaw – a Paradise for Foodies

By

Warsaw – a Paradise for Foodies Recently I was invited to visit Warsaw and of course, I couldn’t say no. Those of you who follow me on Instagram might have seen my posts and stories about this wonderful city. The Tourism Board and I teamed up to film a testimonial video about Warsaw. I was able to get to know the city and explore its endless options. I found lots and lots of restaurants offering mouth-watering Polish and international cuisine. Without further ado – here are my favourite eateries: Breakfast with Kafka The small and comfy student cafe is located right…

Horst – most cosiest place in Linz

By

Horst in Linz – aka the cosiest place in the city I’ve walked past it a couple of times. I’ve also read about it online on Doris’ blog (only German) and I knew one thing: I needed to visit him, and I already knew I would be completely in love with him! But what am I talking about? I’m talking about the lovely Horst. But Horst sadly isn’t a person, but a wonderful and cosy little nest in Linz. It’s so much more than a place to eat – primarily it’s a shop for home decoration. It’s one of those where you’ll…

Winter hiking tour: Mugel in Leoben

By

Perfect for the winter: Hiking Mugel I cannot wait for the winter and am already planning more winter hikes! But let me tell you about my last hike just a couple of days ago. I hiked our backyard mountain Mugel in Leoben. It’s an easy, quick hike and there are plenty of different paths to choose from – something for everyone! This is definitely one of my favourite hikes, even though it takes a bit longer to get atop in the winter than it does in the summer. There are two different car parks, one for the summer and one for…
