Saxon Switzerland – Germany

The so-called area Saxon Switzerland is known for its beautiful nature perfect for hiking and trekking trips. Since living in Dresden for a year and commuting to it for another year I had the shot to visit diverse spots in this are a couple of times. It was the visit of my mom in October…

Ghent – Belgium

Ghent (Flemish: Gent, French: Gand) was just a small stop on my way from Brussels to Brügge. Since my time was limited and I didn’t book a night, I decided to go for a free walking tour from the Hostel Uppelink. If you’re short in time I absolutely recommend it. I did those kind of…

Moritzburg – Germany

Moritzburg is a cute little village with the Moritzburg castle as a main attraction. I wanted to give it a visit for a longer time but it never worked out. This weekend I stayed in Dresden, because I wanted to go hiking in the Swiss Saxony but it was raining the last few days and…

Potsdam – Germany

Potsdam is the next city next to Berlin and is part of the state Brandenburg. It has a really cute old town and is especially famous for the Sanssouci Palace and the park around it. I have passed through a couple of times, visiting friends or going on an event or so, but never really…

Berlin my hometown – Germany

My hometown… I was born in West Berlin in 1987 in Rudow, a part of Neukölln. After coming back from Spain, we moved to Charlottenburg, then I moved to Reinickendorf, Tempelhof, Prenzlauer Berg, Steglitz and now I’m back in Prenzlauer Berg. As you see I have spent time living in multiple part of the city…

Osaka – Japan

As far as what I heard before Osaka mostly loses as not being worthy to spend time at. Most of the people I met just traveled though without having a longer look at it. What a pity. I only had two days there but I did not regret it at all and had a great…

Hiroshima – Japan

Hiroshima, an historic city even though most of the historic buildings where destroyed. It has a different vibe than the other cities I have been to in Japan, but I think it was absolutely worth to go! It is not just about the sad part of history, but some temple areas got reconstructed and give…

Copenhagen – Denmark

In May 2016 we did a Scandinavian road trip. We stared from Berlin by car and or first daytrip lead to Copenhagen. Oh, what a beautiful city! Again, a day trip is by far not enough time for this city. Not only my “bucket list” is increasing but also my “return to list”. Because of…

Prague – Czech

Have you ever been to Prague? In my opinion it is highly underrated. It has wonderful historic buildings, awesome food, good beer, nice shopping opportunities, is not far away for someone traveling from Germany and at the same time it is pretty affordable. Being sixteen I already at a school trip to Prague and in…

Viking vacation in Sweden

Another throwback this time to a different kind of vacation in June 2013. I spent one and a half weeks in Sweden as a Viking reenactor in the Vikingemuseet in Fotevik and another long weekend at the Trelleborgen on another medieval market. Since I am sixteen, I have been interested in medieval times and after…
