Post-Corona travel tip: Off to visit Graz in southern Austria.
Following the immediate aftermath of the corona crisis, Austria has once again eased its travel restrictions and I have promptly jumped at the opportunity to give in to my itchy feet again. Graz it is, and what used to be only a two-hour-journey from Vienna suddenly bore the almost same excitement as a round the […]
Madrid with baby, day trip to El Escorial & Toma Café.
Times like these, it feels a little strange to be writing a travel blog about Madrid. And yet, there are certain activities we can already recommend for your next visit of the Spanish capital city, based on our recent trip there.

Seville during winter. With food tour & baby. Wonderful!
“Devour Seville”: Nomen est omen. As such is the name of our food tour experience set right inside the central Barrio of Seville, right between its modern “Setas” as well as its magnificent cathedral. It is the middle of January, and we have just taken a bus in order to reach Seville from Portugal together with […]
10 off the beaten track tips for travelling in Prague.

Romantic Road Part III : Schongau, Schwangau & the Castle Route to Füssen.
The landscape around me has changed. I can no longer see the “Romantic Road” stretch as far as the horizon, flat as it was before in Nördlingen, around Augsburg or Landsberg. Rugged mountain ranges have given way to straight lines. The gently rising Alpine foothills bring a smile to my face. Mountains always make an […]
Romantic Road Germany Part I : The City of Würzburg.
“Würzburg is sooo beautiful … Enjoy Würzburg and the wines of Franconia”, my travel friends advise about my short stay in Würzburg. As part of the “Romantic Road“, the Franconian town is surrounded by countless romantic vineyards on the Main river. I take to visiting “Vinothek Wohlsein Weine” with their goal to introduce younger, smaller […]
Wine spring in Austria: Welcome to Burgenland, Lake Neusiedl.
Did you know that the earliest signs of spring can be found in the very (north)East of Austria, in the Pannonia plains of northern Burgenland, near Lake Neusiedl? That as you travel here and stay in one of its cozy accommodation units (either B&B or hotels), you will receive the so-called Neusiedler See Card offering you many attractive […]
