Road Trip Through Southern Italy – From Lecce & Alberobello, Puglia To Matera, Basilicata

Happy Thursday and welcome back on the blog! Last week, I decided to take a little break as it’s been quite stressful coming back from my travels, prepare blogposts and additionally, I was a bit sick, or at least not feeling my best after rushing from one place to another. But today, I am back with the final part about my road trip through southern Italy last year.

Road Trip Through Southern Italy - Pompeii & Ischia, Campania

Good morning and happy Thursday. Right now, I’m on my way to the airport, heading to Cyprus for a vacation with my best friends, so be prepared for lots of pictures on Instagram (finally again, as I’ve been very busy the last 2 weeks). Today, a new part of the little series where I tell you everything about my 6 months in Italy is ready for you, and I’m continuing right where I stopped last week by telling you about my road trip through Southern Italy, and this time it’s all about Pompeii and Ischia. I know we’re not quite “southern” yet, but rather in central Italy, but don’t worry, the road trip covered that as well.

Road Trip Through Southern Italy – Naples, Campania

I might start with the most important fact – no, Naples is not particularly safe regarding pickpockets and getting robbed. Also, I wouldn’t recommend driving in the city, as I did and even though I was used to the Italian way of driving, it was the most horrible experience you can imagine. Rules simply did not exist on the streets. But I guess that’s what makes Naples unique.

72 Hours in Berlin, Germany Part I

Last month, I rather spontaneously went to Berlin. The main reason was that I wanted to watch the recording of one of my favourite TV-shows, and as it was just the weekend of Mother’s Day, I was not able to find anyone who would go there with me. But I decided not to let me be stopped by this and went alone. So now let me start right away with everything I’ve done during my three days in the German capital.

Buongiorno Italia! Bella Roma Part I

All roads lead to Rome, right?

Well, I'm pretty sure you can imagine, that during my semester abroad in Italy, I frequently went to Rome, not only because it's a beautiful city and I have never been there before, but also because one of my best friends was doing her semester abroad there. When brainstorming on what places I should recommend you, my first thought was 'Everything?!' and therefore, this will only be part one of my series about the beautiful Italian capital.

Solo Travel in Australia Part II: Sydney, New South Wales

Despite what my friend told me, I had already enjoyed Brisbane very much, so when she told me Sydney was going to be way better, I had pretty high expectations. Due to a tight time schedule, I had about 5 days to spend there with my friend until I would continue my journey alone. Even though Sydney is the most popular of all Australian cities, it is not the capital of Australia, but still, it feels as if it were.

Solo Travel in Australia Part I: Brisbane, Queensland

Australia was my first big trip alone, and by far the farthest I went away from home. But that's quite obvious, given the fact that there are hardly any places farther away from Europe than Australia. Of course, I was nervous before my trip. Would I be okay being completely alone? Would I get lonely? Would I be able to find anyone taking my picture? I was very uncertain, so when the day came, I had mixed feelings.

Buongiorno Italia! Perugia - The Centre of Italy  

As you might have already seen on Instagram, in February, I spent a week in Perugia. For me, this city will always hold a special place in my heart, as I lived there for nearly half a year in 2018. Even though, I didn’t know anything beforehand about this city, it turned out to be the best decision ever to go there and I will now tell you exactly why.

Morocco: From Marrakech to Casablanca

Last week, I told you all about visiting Fes, and so this week it’s time to talk about the tourist hot spot Marrakech and, additionally, I’ll talk about a short trip into the desert and Casablanca, where I also spent some time. Like I mentioned in the previous post, it’s super easy to travel by train inside of Morocco, and so it was only obvious for us to take the train once again, to get from Fes to Marrakech. As this journey takes nearly 7 hours, it was quite exhausting, but pretty convenient as well, as it only cost 215 Moroccan Dirham (about 20 Euros). You could also travel by plane, but it’s more expensive and on our travel day, no direct flight was available.

Sultanate of Oman – From North to South

After posting so many pictures of my stay in Oman on Instagram lately, we felt that it would be only right to tell you a little more about this amazing country here on the blog. This is why today’s post is going to be all about the Sultanate of Oman. As I am writing this post, I have been home in Innsbruck for a little over two days and right now, I am sitting in my living room enjoying a cup of hot Karak, which is a delicious and traditional Omani black tea with cardamom and milk.

For those of you who don’t know, Oman is an Arab country on the south-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, and thus part of the so-called Middle East in Western Asia. An estimated 4,5 million people live in Oman, with around 1,7 million people living in Muscat, the capital, which is located in the north of the country.

Scotland: The Highlands

Welcome back to my little Scotland series. Somehow, the last part of a travel series is always the hardest to write and the one I am delaying the longest, because as soon as it’s over it’s over and I don’t have any more excuses looking at the taken pictures the whole day. But all good things come to an end, right? So, this time, I’ll be talking about the tour through the Scottish Highlands I was on for the last day I spent in Scotland.
