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…

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.

Horst – most cosiest place in Linz

by

I’m talking about the lovely Horst. But Horst sadly isn’t a person, but a…

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…
