Best places to go during Christmas in NYC

The holiday season is in full swing since Thanksgiving and there’s NO escape from it. Every corner store, even the smallest ones, have some kind of decorations. NYC during Christmas is an overkill, a season of overindulgence and a display of lavish decorations and consumption. The days are short but the lights keep the streets bright.

Yellowstone Glacier National Park road trip

Let’s go on a road trip! Guys, sorry for keeping my blog so quiet for the last three weeks, but I made quite a few miles during that time! Meanwhile I’m back in Vienna (for now) but I’m still digesting all the impressions from our epic road trip through the Northwest. We hit some incredibly beautiful places, took tons of photos and we laughed, we suffered, we were in awe and we drove. We drove a lot. So let me…
