Exploring the Flavors of Rome

Until a few years ago, I had never really cared about food abroad. As a picky pescetarian, my options have always been pretty limited anyways. Back in 2009 I didn’t care about croquet in Amsterdam; back in 2011 I didn’t care about goulash in Budapest – because these dishes are not vegetarian, but also because I just didn’t […]

Madrid via Instagram

I just got back from Madrid (this month was crazy travel-wise!) and — yet again — I have so. very. much. to say about my time in Spain and my very first visit to its capital. But first, a little introduction via the photos I took on my phone. I have declared my love for […]

On Berlin’s Urban Food Myths

Berlin is not a foodie capital per se. Obviously, international tourists do come for the legendary currywurst, national visitors tend come for the best döner kebabs in the country, but other than that — what is special about food in Berlin? Other than that the city is so multicultural that there won’t be any international […]

Living like a Local in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin

I’ve been to Berlin three times, and my visits could not have been more different: My first trip there was with my parents when I was fifteen. We stayed in a gross basement apartment somewhere in the suburbs, and I barely saw Berlin, because I constantly had my nose in a book. And to be […]

Berlin via Instagram

It’s been a year since I upgraded my old phone, which basically looked like an ancient mini fax machine, to a newer one so I could finally join Instagram. I had been stalking people’s Instagram web profiles for months and it was the wish to share my own images online that made me give in […]

Serra da Estrela – That Other Portugal

If anything is common knowledge about Portugal, it’s the country’s phenomenal beaches. I could sing songs about how amazing Portugal’s beaches are, and I’d advice anyone, who desires a perfect (affordable!) beach vacation, to travel to the Algarve. But besides beaches and beautiful cities with colorfully tiled houses and windings streets, Portugal also has rough, […]

Life, Travel, and Finding Balance

Admittedly, my travel life has been quite dull lately. I’m truly not happy with that. Plus, it’s really not helpful when writing a blog in the travel niche either. We all know that I can’t keep up with the long term travelers anyway, but I still feel like I need to justify why I haven’t […]
