I already knew that September will start with a lot of work appointments, new projects and a travel destination that I have planned for the end of the month. But I would have never thought, that I would travel to Iceland on September 4th so spontaneously. My Icelandic friend and business partner, who lives in Vienna, asked me two days before the flight— if I can travel with her and her twins to Iceland for personal reasons. Without even thinking, I said “Yes, I will come and help you!”, and after a few minutes I realized “OMG, I am going to my dream island on Saturday, holy moly!”
Surely, I knew that this is not a typical work trip, nor a vacation—so I couldn’t plan too much. However, my friend was so kind to think about me and connect me with her Icelandic friends, who could give me tips on where to stay or where to go while I am in Reykjavik. So, the tips I am sharing with you here, are my personal as well as tips from the local insiders.
In December 2018, the luxury hotel Ritz Carlton Vienna has transformed its lobby into a very stylish and sophisticated Italian restaurant named Pastamara. Beautiful design, warm lightening, wooden details and natural tones – anyone who enters the Pastamara – Bar con Cucinafrom the reception area, immediately will feel the atmosphere that the Italian ritual of the aperitivo.
Venice is one of my favorite cities in Italy, and one of the world’s most romantic cities (before Paris). Its stunning architecture, unique bridges, colorful streets, the gondolas floating across picturesque canals. Ah, I will never stop loving the ‘City of Water’ Venice.
Although Venice is a small city, there is still so much to see. Most of people plan just few days to stay, therefore I have created a short list of my favorite experiences in Venice.
Finally answering the most asked question via direct messages on Instagram. Through a blogpost is easier to list all my favorite places where to eat and drink in Paris, and have a page to send it over to everyone. This post is 100% not sponsored, but I love to share my favorite spots with you.
Few of them might be too popular, pricy and always crowded. However these places are iconic and must visit hotspots in Paris. From vegan to opulent Parisian restaurants, celebrity hotspots to plant-based cafés, I have listed numerous places for everyone. Scroll down and save them on your google maps!
Perhaps the cutest and most instagrammable island, the Venetian lagoon Burano was first established by the Romans, famous for Burano lace and bold colored homes. Burano is 7 km (4 miles) from Venice, a 40-minute trip from Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) by a Venetian water bus/vaporetto.
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.
One more adventure checked off my “Bucket List”. For me travelling rhymes with happiness and exploring new destinations makes my heart beat faster. That’s why my travel posts are special to me, because I love sharing my experience with you.
