How to fix your Backpack or Transport Cover full of Holes

How to fix your Backpack or Transport Cover full of Holes Backpacks are simply great! They are perfect for travelling! I love and adore my backpacks! But on one of my recent trips the unthinkable happened! My backpack was covered in stains and holes! Apparently, airline and ground staff didn’t pick up my backpack off of the floor but simply dragged it through the dirt  and so it came back to me…

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…

Travel Resolutions for 2017

Travel Resolutions for 2017 Another year has gone by and many of the usual resolutions (like losing weight, learning a new language, moving abroad, …) have not been fulfilled and let’s be honest: the moment we wrote them down or thought about them, we knew already that they wouldn’t be accomplished anyway. That’s why I’ve started to do just travel resolutions for the last years and most of those promises to…

Why I won’t use my Return Ticket from Mexico

Why I won’t use my Return Ticket from Mexico It’s the time! I’m excited as if it was Christmas again! It’s that time for adventures again! You might already know that I decided to go back to university in Fall. The Master’s programme that I’m studying brings a lot of travelling with it. The next big thing might just be temporary, but I’m happy to share this with you: I’ll…

I have a Gift for you

I have a Gift for you Christmas is approaching fast and this year is actually the first year that I spend Christmas in Austria and not abroad like I did the last two years. I had chosen to fly to Mexico and enjoy my holidays exploring the underwater world or with a backpack and eating way too many Quesadillas. To be completely honest, that was the plan for this year…

Psst Warsaw – 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 while I was there. So here it is and I’m super…

Warsaw – a Paradise for Foodies

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…

Termas Geometricas – An Oasis of Relaxation

I stumbled across pictures of the Termas Geometricas a while ago and I knew I had to visit them during my trip through Chile. I wanted to spend a day relaxing in beautiful hot waters. There are plenty of thermal springs throughout Chile all heated by surrounding volcanos. Some are “cold” thermal springs, others are so hot you cannot bathe in them. Some geysers close to San Pedro de Atacama are…

Packing List for Chile in August and September – Winter in Chile

Packing List for Chile in the Winter – August and September Chile is a wonderful country and I can only highly recommend a visit. Travel Chile in the winter, not summer. But careful – winter is from July to September and summer from December to February! February is peak season in Chile and I heard horror stories of sold out or even over-booked accommodations and super busy tourist attractions. I…

Horst – most cosiest place in Linz

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…

Salto del Laja – Chile’s Niagara Falls

Salto del Laja – a wonderful waterfall near Los Angeles, Chile On my way back to Santiago from Pucón I made a quick stop in Los Angeles. Wait? LA? Yes, there is a city called Los Angeles in Chile too. Neither the one California not the one in Chile are particularly exciting though. Los Angeles is the perfect starting point for a short day trip. My bus from Pucon (Turbus)…

Concrete Canvas Street Art Tour in Ghent & my favorite spots

Street art in Ghent & my favorite spots I visited beautiful Flanders in August for the second time and fell in love with this magical region in Belgium even more. Not only the weather but also my company was perfect: together with bloggers Melli and Juergen of Lifetravellerz and Trixi of amigaprincess, I was able to spend a few days in Flanders. Let me show you Ghent’s street art and my personal highlights: Concrete…

Must have: Tiger Balm

Miracle ointment tiger balm A couple of years ago I started reading about tiger balm on various blogs. Bloggers were raving about how amazing this little jar of wonder is and I always thought to myself “what’s so special about a simple cream??”. I kind of forgot all about it because I had no idea you could buy tiger balm in pharmacies. I always thought you could only buy it…

Winter hiking tour: Mugel in Leoben

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…
