Madrid

Year 2015 – a good year! During the summer months I took a lot of side trips. My friend and I spontaneously decided to visit Madrid, neither one of us had been there and we found a beautiful AirBnb. A no-brainer! So what is there to see in Madrid? Lots of bars, each bar has […]

Iran

After finally travelling through South Africa (well, just a small part of this beautiful country – definitely gotta go back) and Namibia I had a few days in Abu Dhabi to sleep and take long, warm showers and wash my hair before it gets destroyed. Again. From Abi Dhabi I took the Air Arabia bus […]

Jordan aka Jordania

My friend and I wanted to escape the Christmas and New Years Eve madnessĀ in Europe and wanted to go somewhere warm, with culture and diverse landscape: and no Christmas bs. There weren’t many secure countries to choose from. Syria is clearly not a destination at the moment and neither is Afghanistan. Long story short, we […]

Namibia

Namibia – The Land of Sand I haven’t totally finished my travel notes up until now, and I’m already back at work for a week now… We did see so much in such a short time. Waking up at 5:30am was definitely rough – and not something to get used to easily. The distances in […]

Another beautiful weekend in Paris with my friend. We stayed at an airbnb at Montmartre, just one block away of fantastic seafood restaurants and bars with Happy Hour – but it Paris, it is always a Happy Hour. I think this was the first time that I went to Paris and didn’t even go to […]

Western Australia

My first real trip of the year 2014 took me to Australia. The flight with Qatar Airways wasn’t too bad on the flight to Australia. I flew during the week, the aircraft was almost empty, so I was able to get an entire row and slept almost the entire way from Doha to Perth. Once […]

A weekend in Torino

My latest weekend trip took me to Torino in Italy – I’ve never been there and actually never even planned on going there until my great friends from Canada said that they will be there for the weekend. Since it isn’t far from Zurich to get there, I took the train to Milano, changed train […]

A weekend in Goteborg

What did I do in Goteborg? Sightseeing, surfing? No, we went shopping in some outlet mall. Bought lots of hair products (I now have Moroccan Oil), a cool leather purse in black, some fun t-shirts and ittala candle holders (and probably some more stuff, which I can’t recall at the moment as I’m still insanely tired).
