Ich wollte Ablenkung, Erholung. Am Besten einen Ort, an dem ich noch nicht war. Ein Direktflug von Wien aus sollte es für die paar Tage sein. Ein stilles Hotel, nicht zu groß, mit WLAN. Ein Ort am Meer.
Man sollte glauben, das geht leicht. War es nicht. „Allein am Strand: Mallorcas Ostküste“ weiterlesen
As much as I love a colorful life, I have this thing with natural stone like sandstone or all shades of gray in granite. I can’t stop taking pictures of architecture details, when on holidays. „Trenchcoat Colors like Holidaymemories“ weiterlesen
Sometimes you choose another road on the same tour, and then you find yourself in the middle of something you never recognized before. We really should open our eyes more often.

A Hideaway with rooftop bliss located in the heart and soul of Ljubljana in the middle of the pedestrian zone. No cars no craziness. Just pleasure, great food and peace. That’s how I like a romantic overnight to escape from daily routine. „Hotels Vander. Lazy in Ljubljana“ weiterlesen
This wonderful experience has to be shared separately from my Lisbon stories. It was a dream come true restaurant visit, which I have been craving for years. I first heard of the master of the Mediterranean Cuisine, when he had a guest appearance at the Hangar7 in Salzburg in 2009, but somehow didn’t find somebody, who wanted to join me for this delight.

A week, when everything went wrong, what should have been finished, and the weather deserves just that vulgar four letters with f. This is possibly the most common reason to visit a website, which offers a 9to5-break, and look for some places, where life seems to be just a bit better.

What to do on a hot Summer Saturday, if you are not into sunbathing and the heat? First of all leave the city and go for green! Countless possibilities at the outer districts and near Vienna. I recently had a wonderful morning in Eisenstadt, the smallest provincial capital in Austria, which I can highly recommend.

The capital of Slovenia
Ljubljana | Laibach | Lubiana
A pitoresc little green city, I just knew from coffee breaks, when heading south to Istria or Croatia. That should change, because I was tots amazed, when sitting near the Ljubljanica river under big umbrellas enjoying the quirky street life full of laughter, I thought, and booked a nice little holiday with 3 points of interest in Slovenia. First stop Ljubljana. „Slovenia. Postcard from Ljubljana“ weiterlesen
One of my best kept travel secrets until today is a small town located on the northwest coast of the Istrian peninsula. 500km south of Vienna you will enter a fin de siècle jewel by the sea. Being architecturally well preserved it is a feast for the eye for someone who lives in Vienna and has a crush on light tone painted Art Nouveau and Belle Époque Villas in between huge green trees and the air scented with salt. The combination is unique. Small Cafés like you would find them in Marseille. a landmark like Copenhagens mermaid: the Madonna del Mare – a maiden with a seagull. Monte Carlo feeling at the St.James park and the Crystal Ballroom at the Kvarner Hotel. „Istria. Postcard from Opatija“ weiterlesen
