Dancing through Madrid

On my travels through Spain I went on recently, I of course, also needed to visit the capital. I´ve heard so much about the city before – a lot of my friends didn´t like the city at all, told me it was boring and not much to see. So, I went there with not many expectations and was surprised and surprised again. Madrid was … Read More Dancing through Madrid

Barcelona.  A city most people love – especially for going on holiday. It´s the perfect place if you want to party, drink just have a good time. If you live there, however, it is a bit different.

Hidden places in Lisbon

To be honest, until recently I fairly neglected Portugal. This country was never part of my travel plans nor did I think it ever would be. I was more in love with Spain and thought Portugal would just be a tinier Spain and not able to surprise me. Nothing could have been further from the truth. It only took me a week to fall … Read More Hidden places in Lisbon

A lonely traveller?

Travelling alone. What did I learn from it? Quite a lot. If somebody asks me if they should dare to travel alone I’ll always say yes. My first solo trip was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and you’ll soon see why. In September 2017 I decided to travel to South America all on my own. To Chile to be precise. I … Read More A lonely traveller?

Days passed, weeks seemed to fly by and now, after living in Bordeaux for almost five months, I had to say goodbye to this beautiful city once again.

Different faces of Paris

As my Erasmus semester was slowly coming to an end I decided to spend my last weekend in Paris to see the French capital I already heard so much about for myself. My trip started quite early in the morning. As my bus departed at 4:30 am I decided I wouldn’t sleep at all that night. I was just going to stay awake. So … Read More Different faces of Paris

Climbing bridges in Budapest

And off we go Back in 2016 me and my best friend Jenny travelled on our own for the first time. It was our first time ever leaving Austria to explore our neighbor countries. We were thinking about where we wanted to go for a while, then we finally settled for Budapest. Close to Vienna, easy to reach, cheap. So the decision was made. … Read More Climbing bridges in Budapest
