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…

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

By

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…

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…

Linz from above – Impressions from Höhenrausch 2016

By

Linz from above I already told you about my move to the Upper Austrian capital city Linz some time ago. I absolutely love living in Linz, even though I am on the other side of the world right now. There are so many amazing possibilities and events to attend. I call Linz my home already but maybe that’s to do with my charming boyfriend also? Who knows? 😉 What is Höhenrausch? The event, with the well-sounding name Höhenrausch, is held from the end of May until mid October and and showcasts various interesting art projects. What’s so special about it?…

Cave trekking through Kreidelucke in Upper Austria

By

Cave trekking through Kreidelucke in Pyhrn-Priel, Upper Austria It was already pitch dark after a few steps. No movement could be made out any more and all my other senses sharpened. I tried to construe every sound. How long would it go on like this? When would I be able to see where I was going again? Why didn’t I ask about it before we started? I didn’t feel uneasy but it wasn’t comfortable either. But it started being fun after a while! Today it is my pleasure to take you to the region of Pyhrn-Priel and to participate in…

1 Weekend, 4 Countries and 1 Cabriolet

By

… a unique road trip which can probably only be done in Europe Once upon a time there was a little girl. This little girl longed to see the world. She saved every penny for adventures both big and small. The little girl got bigger but her plans never changed. It took her 23 years to visit all the countries bordering her home country. This is the story of a small but mighty fine adventure.  What would big adventures be without the little ones? We wouldn’t have as much appreciate huge moments without all the small moments piecing them together….

Flying Fox in Leogang

130km/h and not lacking any fun: Flying Fox XXL in Leogang

By

Pure Adrenaline – the largest and fastest zip line in the world Do one thing that scares you everyday A few days ago I travelled to Leogang with exactly those words in mind. I was anxious and happy like a child and didn’t want to wait any longer for the Flying Fox in Leogang (= zip line) to happen. I’m always looking forward to travelling to this part of Austria, because we lived just a few kilometers away and I learned how to ski here. This weekend wasn’t about skiing but more about other activities such as the flying fox on Mount…

First try of Peruvian Cuisine – Lima56

By

Latin America is right around the corner – Peruvian delicacies at Lima56 in Vienna Today I want to take you on a different journey – a journey that won’t involve any planes: a culinary journey to Peru – without having to fly all the way to Latin America. If you know me you know my love to almost anything from there: the language(s), people, landscapes, beaches, mountains, valleys, long bus rides, pure happiness of the people that live there and surely the cuisine as well in all its bright colors and tastes. Where could I find a restaurant like that? In Vienna,…
