For those who followed my blogging journey know how much I love tailored and oversized suits, as well as separates such as wearing blazers combined with jeans or tailored pants with a shirt or  turtleneck.

For some empowering Working Girl vibes, the oversized power suit is back. From grey to caramel, all you need to do is find the right shade for you. Now that we are slowly going back to the office and to the work meetings in person, we have to slowly change our habits from at-home separates to back-to-office pieces.

PHOTO DIARY: RETHYMNO, CRETE

November 21, 2021

If you visit the Greek island, Crete– a day trip to Rethymno (or Rethymnon) is a must. It’s one of the best preserved medieval towns in Greece and was once a bastion of the Venetians who left a mighty legacy– the large Fortezza (fortress).

The town was also ruled by Turks for a time so you’ll find a scattering of Ottoman mosques, a Hamam peeping from behind 16th century buildings.

You can choose visiting Rethymno for a relax day on the nearby beaches, or explore the historic center and enjoy the hidden cafes in cute cobblestone streets.

HOTEL REVIEW: THE VINTAGE HOTEL & SPA LISBON, PORTUGAL

September 30, 2021

*NOTE: Unfortunately we are still in unusual times, and the COVID-19 regulations change rapidly. Please check here the latest information before making your journey to Portugal.

Another check off my bucket list! Over the past decade since I have started my blog, I was mostly focused on travelling within central Europe. Although Portugal was always on my wish-list, somehow I never made it. However as we know, for everything there is a season, a reason and time.

Thanks to my longtime friend and colleague Maria Ratzinger who had a brilliant idea to visit Lisbon in September, this trip was the best thing we have planned to start the fall season. Our journey started from Vienna to Lisbon, followed with a short trip to Sesimbra region.

FOOD GUIDE: WHERE TO EAT AND DRINK IN VENICE, ITALY

February 6, 2020

After sharing some tips about dos and don’ts when travelling to Venice as well what to do and see, today I want to share my personal favorite places where to eat and drink in the City of Canals.

I have always been seduced by its architecture, art and the beauty from every angle. No doubt that there is something magical about this city. However, when I’ve visited it for the first time, my food experience wasn’t the best. Why? Because I wasn’t well informed, and I didn’t had an idea where to eat and drink.

COMO MAALIFUSHI, MALDIVES

December 2, 2019

A perfect and sophisticated tropical minimalism: clean lines, wooden water villas and all white beach front pool area overlooking the 50-shades-of-blue Indian ocean. The ultimate dream honeymoon destination.

New week, new hotel review from the Maldives. Right after we checked out from Soneva Fushi, first we flew to Malé International Airpot (MLE) in order to take the seaplane transfer to COMO Maalifushi.

On our arrival to MLE, we were greeted by the friendly COMO Maalifushi staff with welcome drinks and snacks. While waiting at the relaxing COMO Maalifushi lounge for the seaplane transfer, a staff member took care of our check-in. After a spectacular 60-minute seaplane flight from Malé, we arrived to the resorts Jetty Arrival and the view over COMO Maalifushi was already surreal.

A TRAVEL GUIDE TO MÉRIDA, MEXICO

February 3, 2019

The Yucatán Peninsula is more than a white-sand-beach exotic destination. This area has so much to offer, such as the unique and vibrant city Mérida. When I planned to visit Mexico, I definitely wanted to make a short trip to Mérida, which is the capital and largest city in Yucatan state in Mexico. Though it’s called “The White City” (named after its limestone buildings), Mérida has the kindest people, eye-catching colonial architecture, a unique heritage, charming museums, art galleries, great traditional Mexican food and many more.

ARE YOU PLANNING A TRIP TO BALI? YOU NEED TO READ THIS!

August 24, 2017

Since you can find everything online, travel booklets and destination brochures are long gone. Bali is loved by many travelers and holds a special place in so many hearts. Those traveling to Bali visit the island for many different reasons, and do things very differently to what I will try to recommend in this guide.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s „Eat, Pray, Love“ put Bali on the map as a single girl’s romantic „finding yourself“ destination. So if you are a devoted traveler and looking for a home, you might just consider dropping your bags for next several months. But overall, Bali is so much more. You can dress it up in accommodation or dress it down and still have a great experience, which is one of the main reasons why I love Bali.
