Around the World in Coffees: The 2015 Edition

It's the most wonderful time of the year! And by that I mean: I get to look back on the last year through the coffees I drank! Ever since I wrote my first blog post about traveling and coffee, my yearly coffee round-up has become an article I look forward to writing the entire year. I love how a collage of my coffees always tells stories from my kitchen table in Göttingen to far-off places all over the world. The changing of scenery, light, cups, tables, or sweet treats on the side are always part of my favorite memories, because with [...]

How to Avoid Tourist Crowds in Florence

Florence is easily one of the most touristy places in all of Europe. You can't blame people for picking Florence as a must-see destination in Italy though: It's an absolutely gorgeous city and it's a dream to visit -- for anyone who loves art, architecture, history, food, and scenic views. Florence is the essence of what Italy dreams are made of. It's every bit as beautiful as you'd think. It looks just like the movies, but better. And that's what people come for. Millions of people. This is what the Piazza del Duomo looks like at 10 am in the morning. On [...]

The Best Food Finds in Florence

Of course, I wanted to go to Florence for the art, the architecture, and the Renaissance history. But I can't deny that I was looking forward to eating all the food. I mean, it's Italy, right? Give me Italian pasta and gelato, and I'm a happy girl. Despite all my excitement though, I knew it wouldn't be easy to find really good Florentine food among all the tourist traps with multilingual menus. When I visited Rome last year, I realized that you just can't just find the good places by accident. If it hadn't been for my Walks of Italy food [...]

Photo Essay: The Best of March 2015

March somehow went by so quickly that I can barely believe it's been four weeks since wrote my February round-up. But busy months always pass quickly, and March definitely was a busy month: From work obligations, to networking at the world's biggest travel trade fair, to photo shoots, to a trip to Italy with my mom, most of March felt like I was running around with barely enough time to catch my breath. March evening skies over Germany Travel I spent so much of my time in transit this month, traveling back an forth in-between German states for family birthdays, social events, [...]

Photo Essay: Impressions from Florence

This photo essay doesn't really need an introduction: I was in Florence last week, and yes, it was a dream. It was my first time there and was so thrilled to finally see all the famous art and architecture in person. The weather was perfectly springtime-y, I had gelato every day, I took way too many photo of pretty lanterns, and I visited all the churches, museums, and cloisters. This trip was exactly was I needed after a long German winter: Feeling the surprisingly strong spring sunshine on my skin, drinking late-night espressi, and reanimating my love for art which I [...]
