Northern California: From Redwoods To Vineyards

Happy Friday and hopefully you are as ready for this blog post as you are for the weekend. Last week I told you as much as possible about Oregon, my all-time favourite US state, this week we’re headed on to California. As you might have noticed, these blog posts are getting longer and longer along the road trip, so grab a cup of tea or coffee and let’s get right into it.

Forests, Beaches, Cliffs & Seals: Mt. Saint Helens & Oregon

Welcome back on the blog and welcome to a new blog post. As you might have noticed, this blog post did not go live on Thursday but on Friday and from now on it will remain this way. But now let’s head right into the topic and pick up where we left last week. In the previous blog post, I told you everything about Whale Watching near the San Juan Islands, but of course, this was not the only thing on the itinerary of the road trip regarding Washington, and I’ll tell you everything about the most beautiful places in Oregon as well.

Scandinavia – God dag Stockholm!

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another blog post. As you might have noticed, I’ve been quite on the run the last few weeks, and I’ve visited some very cool places. This week I want to start telling you all about my short but fun trip to the Swedish capital Stockholm. It was my first time in Scandinavia, but I already know it won’t be my last time!

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.

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.

Skiing in Tyrol Part III: Bergeralm, Rosshütte & Muttereralm

The days are getting longer, and the sun is getting warmer. Still, we are not ready to let winter go completely and so, once more, we will tell you a little more about the ski areas around Innsbruck. Luckily, despite the sun, it is very cold most of the times so the slopes are still in great conditions. Grab your skis, snowboards, or whatever you use to enjoy the beautiful mountains and let’s start with all the fun in the white powder.

Staying Safe: On & Off the Slopes

We’re right in the middle of winter. The slopes in every ski resort are in nearly perfect conditions. The sun is shining most of the days. This means now is the perfect time – for skiing accidents. On days like these everyone focusses on  having fun, but somehow, they miss out on staying safe, which is why we postponed our next part of talking about ski resorts in Tyrol to next week. This week we have to focus a bit more on staying safe while having fun.

Japan: Konichiwa Tokyo!

We’re so glad you loved Sophie’s Hawaii-series, so now it’s my turn to tell you all about what, most definitely, can be considered the best trip of my life – so far. On 17th of July 2017 one of my closest friends and I boarded a plane in Munich (because, just like we have already told you, it’s the closest bigger airport to Innsbruck); that’s the beginning of an an 18-hour-long journey, with a quick-stop in Abu Dhabi, that would take us to Tokyo Narita. We have both travelled a lot in our lives and can assure you: Japan’s border control has to be one of the nicest and quickest you’ll ever come across.

Vienna - Christmas Markets

If you follow us on Instagram, you will know, that a little over a week ago, Sophie went to Linz. On Sunday, however, she went to Vienna to visit a friend whom she first met when she was in Hawaii last year. Vienna is such a magical city, especially during the holidays. Since there is so much to see there, they had a pretty busy day exploring all kinds of Christmas markets and sights.

Eibsee – Bavaria, Germany

Not too long ago, I spent a day with my sister at the beautiful Eibsee, also known as Lake Eib. We went by car, as it’s just about an hour from Innsbruck and only half an hour more if you’re coming from Munich. Just remember that if you are using Google maps or a similar service you should enter the parking area or hotel Eibsee as your final destination, or otherwise the services will send you on a very long and complicate journey to the other side of the Eibsee (including an hour walk just to get to the lake).

Salzburg - Christmas Markets

As you might have already noticed, right now we are exploring some of the Christmas markets in Innsbruck and cities close by. So, two weeks ago, we went on a little road trip to Salzburg, a quite well-known city, also known outside of Austria, mostly because of The Sound of Music or Mozart. From Innsbruck, Salzburg is easily reached within 2 hours by car, so it makes for the perfect day trip destination.

Umbrüggler Alm - Tyrol

Mid-November, I went hiking with my sister near the Nordkette. As the cable car is not operating during November to prepare for the winter season, we decided to hike to one of the lodges that are not too far up the mountain and easily reachable from the valley station. There are numerous ones, but we opted for the Umbrüggler Alm, as we've never been there before.

Art and Design Market - Innsbruck

The Art and Design market takes place aprox. Twice a year in Innsbruck, but we have never been there before. This time it visited Innsbruck on the first weekend of November (3.-4. November 2018) and we went there on Saturday. The location, the VAZ Hafen, is located on the outskirts of Innsbruck, but is easily reached by bus or even by foot, like we did.

We definitely recommend going there early, as it gets really packed around lunchtime and the afternoon. If you are looking for a place to save money and buy cheap goods, you are definitely in the wrong place, but if you are looking for cool handcrafted and sustainable stuff, this is definitely the place to be. Also it is great to get in touch with the sellers, which most of the time are also the producers of the goods you are looking at.
