Our short but sweet time in Vancouver

October 14, 2017

Vancouver: There’s hardly any other city in the world I heard more good things about. And if I look at surveys about quality of living in cities worldwide, Vancouver always is among the top places (competing with my home city Vienna). It’s also home of my far-related and lovely cousin Brianne. It’s been more than three years since she visited me in Austria and I’ve been promising to see her in Canada ever since.…

Eating our way through Seattle

October 5, 2017
Seattle foodie guide

Although this is not a “food only” post, our visit to Seattle ended up focusing on the edible pleasures, rather than its other attractions. Maybe because we’ve been on the road for more than a week non-stop – and although we never had a bad meal – the food along rural roads tend to be the same. Also we were so overwhelmed by Yellowstone and Glacier, we were tired from the driving, hence we took it easy and enjoyed being…

However I tried to stay productive at least and found myself quite busy in a routine that consists of yoga, figuring out what to eat for lunch/dinner (decisions, decisions), walking around the city and attending a Saturday-class about Social…

Most livable city Vienna

… I can’t help myself than praise you like you deserve. As someone who has constant itchy feet I haven’t felt much appreciation for my home city. Or maybe I just took it for granted to live in one of the safest, cleanest, most livable cities in the world (in fact it has been voted to the most livable city in the world for 8th consecutive years according to Mercer’s 2017 study).…

Spring weekend trip to Zagreb

May 17, 2017
Zagreb weekend trip

[In friendly collaboration with Hellö and Embassy Row BnB] The sun gained back strength, the gardens were in full bloom and the trees turned into lush green: During the long Easter weekend I had the chance to soak in the long awaited spring in all its beauty! Together with my just-as-Insta-addicted friend Marion from marestella.me I went to Croatia’s capital Zagreb. But none of us were in the mood of long drives, so we took the comfortable way by bus from Vienna – one of the many…
