33 Comments

 Relaxing on the beach and pool for a few days. After our trip with a few hundred kilometers from Porto to Ericeira and Lisbon – our dream scenario for the time at the Algarve. Whether this came true? Well, read for yourself… Package holidays in the middle of mass tourism are generally rather less my thing. After the last few months, in…

The Magic of Copenhagen – 2 Days in Denmark’s capital

2 Comments

After our first little stroll we realized straight away: Copenhagen has an incomparable charm … … or not quite incomparable. My friend was instantly reminded of her trip to Amsterdam. I guess just like almost everyone, I´m anyway always excited when a city has many green areas and is surrounded by waters. Copenhagen totally puts that in a nutshell. At…

Liechtenstein – worth a visit?

5 Comments

Hi guys, since I´ve been in Switzerland last week, mainly in the eastern part, I wanted to take the opportunity to make a short trip to Liechtenstein. Did you know that the Principality of Liechtenstein is the richest monarchy in Europe? I didn´t want to miss out on that of course. Who knows, maybe I would meet the prince by…
