Dear Vienna, when a Viennese goes abroad…

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…

20 hours in Dubai well spent

Dubai layover guide

I love flying with Emirates. It’s my #1 airline for my travels to Asia and while I had a fair amount of layovers at DXB, I never had enough time to actually go into the city. This finally changed on my last trip from Bangkok, where I purposely booked a ticket with a 20-hour layover in Dubai. That also was the chance to finally meet two amazing ladies I know from the blogosphere: Sanne from mitziemee.com and Hanna from tripsnkids.com who took…

From Sukhumvit to Khao San

Bangkok popular areas

Coming to Bangkok from Hanoi almost feels like a cultural shock: Despite being rather close to each other geographically, they are very different: The way Bangkok has developed into a westernized metropolis within the last decades, is quite remarkable. I’m not judging whether this good or bad, but coming from the “West” you’ll feel way more accommodated in Thailand’s capital than probably other places in Asia.…

Hello Hanoi!

March 31, 2017

Hanoi, Vietnam in March: I’m desperately cleaning my feet with the last piece of tissue because I thought wearing sandals on the wet, dirty streets was a good idea. I switched back to my chucks. It’s been the first day of my vacation and I couldn’t wait to change into my summer clothes as soon as possible. Little did I know that Hanoi suffers a constant overcast sky, rain or drizzle during that time of the year.…

A perfect weekend in Brno

March 4, 2017
Brno travel guide

Brno – pronounced (“Br-no”) – is Czech Republic’s second largest city. Never heard of it? Well, this is just another good example for a country that is dominated by a big capital while other cities are hardly on a traveler’s map. However, from Vienna it’s just a stone’s throw away and I can’t believe I just made it there last weekend for the first time……
