    2 choices in life

    The other day I came across a picture that really caught my attention. It got me thinking and wouldn’t let me stop pondering about its meaning. I really want to share this massive thought with you, as I believe that so many of us can truly benefit from this:   We ALWAYS have 2 choices in life   The comic showed two men trapped in deep holes. While one guy sat depressed, sad and truly unhappy about the current situation at the bottom of the hole, the other one was scraping soil off the walls building stairs into the high wall. The sentence underneath the photo went like this: “This is…

    Most iconic views in Paris of Paris (to see for free)

    If I say Paris, you probably have one or two sights in your mind – Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe… In todays post I’ll share some of the most amazing spots in Paris – you can visit for free – to enjoy the most iconic views of those famous sights.   Sacré Coeur Sacré Coeur is a church located on top of a hill. Right in front of the church you’ll have an incredible view over the whole city!   Pont Alexandre III The bridge itself is worth a visit with all its golden statues and gracefully decorated details. As this was not enough, you’ll view the Seine with…

    Traveling Paris – tipps

      See a lot, do little: The bus line 72 is almost like a hop on, hop off/sightseeing route. If you are tired of walking, hop on at the next station and enjoy the views and sights you’re passing by. Bad weather: During the time we visited Paris it was really cold and rainy/snowy. We thought we would just take our umbrellas or take a pause while eating in a warm mall. But it turned out that once you are cold to the bones and no malls close around the major sights, even an umbrella is not much of an use anmyore.. So here is my tip #1: Jump into…

    3 perfect days in Paris

    At first Paris seemed so huge and really overwhelming – only 3 days, and so much to see and do… But really all the major sights are quite central and located in a walkable distance to each other.     Sacré Coeur I suggest doing this as one of the very first things upon your arrival. Sacré Coeur is an impossant church on top of a hill, where you can get an impressive overview of the city – even all the way up to the Eiffel Tower. There is a Funicular that may take you up the hill, but if you’re up to walk the stairs go for it 🙂…

    Vegan in Shanghai

    Funnily I can’t even say if I found it hard or easy to be a vegan in Shanghai. But I guess if I think about it, I would say: there are places where it’s way easier to find vegan food choices. Maybe if you have a little bit of practice and routine of what to eat you’ll be fine, but definitely it is not the most vegan friendly city!   Over time I developed a “travel kitchen” that I bring with me no matter where I go. I never had any issues “importing” those items, but rather ALWAYS have been grateful I had them with me (those late nate hunger…

    Things to do in Shanghai / Shanghai travel guide

    As usual there is a lot more than the few things and attractions listed in a city travel guide. However I believe it is a great way to get a general overview of what to do in each city. Some like to visit a museum or a temple, while others want to sip a drink in a roof top bar, and yet others want to spend their days in bed partying all night… Possibilities are endless and so are the types of travelers and visitors 🙂 So here are a few of the many sights and things to do while in Shanghai:   Nanjin Road Nanjing Road is the shopping…

    Impressions of Shanghai, China

      My first trip to China should be a few days stay in China’s largest city: Shanghai. All the other destinations in Asia I have been to were hot and humid, but looking at the temperature of Shanghai, it was hardly above freezing point – I had no idea what to expect. So I packed my suitcase, jumped on the plane and got myself prepared for a big surprise. Let me share some of the most outstanding impressions with you…   Food Traveling into another country, or even another continent with another tradition will always bring changes. Most of the restaurants showcast their menu outside the dining area so potential…
