How to best spend a weekend in Edinburgh

Nele/ June 20, 2017/ Destinations/ 0 comments

I spend a weekend in Edinburgh earlier this month. It was my second visit to this beautiful city after last year’s Scotland trip. It’s so unique, with its many old buildings and the history that surrounds everything. You feel like you’ve been transported through time to a former century. Except for the cars, that is. And there may not have been so

How to best visit the Spanish Riding School in Vienna

Nele/ February 6, 2017/ Destinations/ 0 comments

I have wanted to visit Vienna since I was a little girl, and only for one specific reason: The Spanish Riding School, or Spanische Hofreitschule as the original name is. You see, I was that girl who was crazy about horses. The one with the horse posters on the bedroom wall, and pictures of horses on her jumpers, and a book-case full

While staying on Ischia I took a day trip to Mount Vesuvius and the old Roman city of Pompeii. The guide on the day trip was an Italian called Antonio. Fast-talking and completely unconcerned with the incorrectness of his German, he told his group everything about the volcano and the ancient city it destroyed. He talked about events from two millenia ago

How to travel Luxembourg when you have no expectations

Nele/ September 11, 2016/ Destinations/ 0 comments

In 2014 I was in Luxembourg City for a long weekend. I went there with my theatre group for a festival. It was probably the closest I ever got to travelling to a place without having any expectations or preconceived ideas about it. I did not go to Luxembourg because I wanted to see the city, but because of the festival. If

A day in Furth im Wald or: Meeting the Bavarian Dragon

Nele/ August 23, 2016/ Destinations/ 1 comments

Have you ever met a live dragon? No? Then you should visit the little town of Furth im Wald. It’s located in Bavaria, near the Czech border, and admittedly doesn’t sound like much at first. Certainly not like the dragon capital of Germany (if you even thought Germany had such a thing). But that’s only until you meet Tradinno. Meeting the Dragon

Nele/ July 24, 2016/ Destinations/ 1 comments

After telling you about how much I love London, I decided it’s time to get a bit more specific. I wrecked my brain long and hard to decide on 10 places or attractions I want to introduce you to in more detail. There are lots of others I could have chosen, but all of the places in this list have managed to somehow
