Luxembourg

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a small landlocked country in western Europe. It is bordered by Belgium to the west and north, Germany to the east, and France to the south.

Vienna, Austria

I studied here. So coming back to this place brings memories. Of everything. Let me start with the view on Danube river. We used to drink coffee at the top of the buildings on the left side, having the Austrian cakes and enjoying the view from bars. Most of my time there I spent living […]

Herculaneum and Pompeii đźŚ‹

From Naples we took the train to Pompeii. The mount Vesuvio, the volcano was next to us and fertile land just a bit above. We could imagine the catastrophy in 79 CE. Pompeii Pompeii was an ancient Roman city near modern Naples in the Campania region of Italy. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area was buried under 4 to […]

Naples, Italy

Early morning flight for 25 EUR but it was totally worth it. 🙂 We woke up at 3:30 and landed to Naples just before 9:00. Upon our arrival we have soon noticed the chaotic city and how nobody respects the traffic lights. However, it took us one day to adjust. Our accommodation was in the […]

Frankfurt am Main, Deutschland

I took the local newspapers like a local and started to renew my German. Frankfurt am Main is the 5th biggest […]

Lille, France

So far been there three times and I am pretty sure I will keep visiting this rather Flemish city at the northern France. When you see the architecture, you will know what I am talking about: bricks and gold. Food is oriented on the fish and shells from the Northern sea. I captured this oyster […]

Porto, Portugal

Short one day trip from Lisbon to Porto! Not much time plus the rain, but oh boy, we enjoyed! 🙂 We rented a car and cross the country driving for almost 4 hours. We arrived to the hill where from you can beautifully sea the river Douro that flows into the Atlantic ocean. With its historical core which was proclaimed a World […]

Cyprus ⛵

So much mixed feeling s about this island/ country/ land… I didn’t get the best of its beaches because it was winter time – although 22 degrees everyday, I didn’t get the best of the Cypriot food because the locals were so hard to introduce always greek food and greek wine, I didn’t feel safe […]

Saint Omer and Nazi bunker visit, France

A weekend trip to northern France. 🙂 The region is called Pas de Calais. It has been named due to its famous Saint Audomar who brought Christianity to the area. The first stop was the main square where the Christmas market was held. We decided to have a glass of champagne (which was surprisingly a […]
