What makes us want to travel and explore the world? Of course, the cultural differences we encounter. Being able to understand the humans from their cultural standpoint of where they come from and what they believe, as well as where those beliefs come from. Therefore I want to talk about the World Museum or Weltmuseum Wien (former Museum of Ethnology) in Vienna, which is the largest anthropological museum in Austria build in 1876. Located in the Hofburg Imperial Palace, WMW has a comprehensive ethnographical and archaeological objects from Asia, Africa, Oceania, and America. Since November 2014 the museum was closed due to renovation and was reopened on the 25th of October 2017.

Today, I am taking you inside the Museum of fine Arts in Vienna, which is one of the most important European museum buildings opened in 1891. The magnificent architecture creates a fitting setting for the artistic treasures assembled by the Habsburgs, amongst the most breathtaking in the world. The collections range from Ancient Egyptian and Greek and Roman Antiquities to Medieval Art and the splendid Renaissance and Baroque. So the museum is divided into eight different collections, some of which are housed in the Hofburg and in Schönbrunn Palace.
Last but not least, today I want to tell you everything about Bali and my personal favorite places where to stay, eat, shop as well as what to see and do in this beautiful tropical paradise. Some say this island is overrated, a paradise that has lost its way and getting dirtier every year. But really it has just devopleped transforming from a low-key hippie haven to a enormous soulful place, where you can stay smart but still find a barefoot vibe.
Whether you are looking for beautiful beaches, DJ’s or good cocktails, here I want to share my personal favorite beach clubs and the hottest addresses to chill and party the holiday hours in Bali. The best beach clubs cover the island from Uluwatu to Ubud, offering cool music, watersports, beautiful bamboo beach bars and sunset cocktail views. The best way to spend sunny or cloudy days are definitely lounging on a sun bed, cocktail in one hand, book in the other while listening to either the residential DJ or crashing waves. Whether you are spending your holidays in Seminyak, venturing down south, or have decided to go Island-hopping – here I have a list of Bali’s hottest beach clubs for you.

I am always fascinated by the association between the way we enjoy happiness on a daily basis and how we choose to live our lives. There are choices that you make every day, some of which seem completely unrelated to your happiness, that dramatically impact the way you feel mentally and physically. In our daily lives it’s easy to miss the forest for the trees and completely overlook some of the small, simple things that can disproportionally affect our levels of happiness and general fulfillment in life.
After Jimbaran, Ubud and Seminyak, we decided to spend our last week in Nusa Dua. A peninsula in South Bali and well known as an enclave of high-end hotels and resorts. The beaches are glorious – sand, deep, long and clean. We made the right choice and choose Conrad Bali for our last days in Bali.
