Egypt – Hurghada

For the first time in my live I choose to go on a all-inclusive vacation just to sleep & relax and not having to care about anything else.

So Natasa and I went to Hurghada – Egypt. Because of the political situation we were not able to plan something at the ancient cultural sites and experienced 3 days out of 5 how army jets started from the airport in Hurghada. Besides that we lives in a surrealistic tourist bubble – called „Al Leila Wa Leila 1001 nights“ – a very nice oriental hotel.

We had a great time even trough in some ways we found less than we expected – e.g. not being able to go into other hotel bars and there really being no cultural spots not made for tourists like us in the city „center“ – on the other time flew by so much faster than expected and there was enough stuff to do for us during these 5 days (eating, drinking, swimming, sun, read, trying out scuba diving…).

I probably won’t go on a vacation like this again – but for that time it was the right thing to do for me and the hotel really was a good choice (I would also recomend the partner hotel next to the beach – Dana Beach Resort).

Copenhagen (& Malmö)

Pentecost weekend in Copenhagen

I always wanted to visit Copenhagen and so I did for the last long weekend.

We were lucky to have perfect travel weather all the time – around 22°, mostly blue sky and many concerts were held next to a nice public park.

We lived in Nørrebro and explored the whole city by feet! for two days. We saw everything that is advised by travel guides and developed a good feeling for the city.

I´d say, that it is one of the nicest cities I´ve ever been to.

On day three we went early to the airport, checked in and visited Malmö for a few hours by train.

You will find my favorite pictures from the trip – chronologically sorted – below.

Lisbon

I just visited Lisbon for one week. I managed to see all mayor attractions and get a good feeling for the city. I did most tours by feet. While meandering through alleys you probably get the best impression of the city and will find many beautiful spots. I could have stayed in Lisbon for weeks just sitting in different small bars at viewpoints or next to the Tejo. The cities beauty and old history is present everywhere, even through many houses are run-down and empty.
I would recommend to everybody to visit Lisbon and stay there a little longer than you might think is necessary.

Milan

I visited Milan for the first time, just after I went to Bern. The weather was amazing for march and presented the city from its best side.
I went to some shops, thanks to globalisation, this is getting less interesting – the shops are the same everywhere.
The cathedral was gorgeous and impressive and getting up on the roof, relaxing in the sun and enjoying the view is a must do.
Sadly I did not apply on time (at least one month ahead) for tickets to get a glance on Da Vincis last supper, which is a great excuse to come back.
All interesting spots are in walking distance in the center, this way even the shortest trip to Milan is enough to get a good feeling for the city.

Bern

Strolling around Berns old town for one day. I tried to spot the bears, did a amazing tour at the Berner Cathedral and went to big work party at the Kornhauskeller, which is a great location for big events.

London calling

Some impressions from London, hold in typical grey from october 2013.
there are hardly any typical sightseeing pictures, because I did that before.
I only visited Fullham, the Kensigton Square, the City, Brick lane, little Venice and went to the Hurlingham club, which was really interesting.

Traveling Indonesia

I went to Indonesia for 3 weeks in september.

[wpgmza id=“1″]

I started in Jakarta going to Yogyakarte to see Borobudur and Prambanan. Then I left to see the Bromo and Ijen vulcanoes. By ferry the journey continued to Bali stopping at Lovina, Manduk and Ubud. To avoid the crowds at Balis beaches I went to the Gili Islands (Meno). I flew back to Jakarta over Lombok, where I saw the amazing very american characterized gigantic Malls and got an impression of the live in one of the biggest Regions in the world.
