What looks like a weird photo wallpaper or maybe a bit too much photoshop is a quite accurate depiction of what hiking in Tirol looks like. For five days, I ventured into the Alps with four friends and the dog, to explore the deepest valleys, the steepest slopes, and the fluffiest Kaiserschmarrn in the most lovely Stubaital in the heart of Tirol. Read on to find many reasons why you should do the same thing…
Isn’t it weird how we never talk about Prague? It’s so close, it’s insanely beautiful, (a lot cheaper), and still I haven’t been in over 15 years and everyone I talked to was like, yeah, I really want to go, but… No but! You should go! Prague is amazing! I went for a way too short stint of two nights in August and had so much stuff on my to-see-list, I could’ve stayed a week. However, here’s an intro to the Prague of now.
The sun’s out, temperatures are glorious and all we wanna do is get out of the city, hang below palm trees in an apple orchard and eat ice cream, right? I have the perfect place for you: Schloss Schwante, Clärchen’s Ballhaus’ Sommerfrische, a super pretty castle in the countryside about an hour north from Kreuzberg!
It’s that time of the year! All Berliners wanna flock out of the city and into Brandenburg, watch butterflies, swim in lakes, eat all the creamy cakes, and watch the sun set while lying on a green lawn.

For my first trip to Japan, I decided to keep things simple – instead of doing the very popular route from Tokyo to Kyoto, Osaka, Hakone and back, our travels focussed on Tokyo, where we stayed for most of our time. I wanted to save Kyoto and Osaka for a second visit, with more time for each. But what I didn’t want to miss was staying at a Ryokan in the countryside. But where? There’s an abundance of choices, from high-end to casual, with Fujisan-view or nestled at its feet, I didn’t know how to decide. When a trusted friend recommended Satoyama Jujo, telling me their kitchen’s focus are the many edible mountain plants surrounding the place, I was instantly smitten. And this ended up to be one of the best hotel experience ever.
