It’s In The Bag: Going To Italy!

A short trip to Italy is coming up and I’m so excited. After living in Australia for almost two years, I’m looking forward to travel in Europe again! And Italy is one of my absolute favourite places: the food, the people, the chaos, the buildings, the shopping, the culture, the history, etc. First stop Rome,...

Next stop Morocco?

Next stop Morocco?

Morocco is definitely on my ‘wish list’ of places to go. I found this amazing hotel, Riad Joya, in Marrakesh which only makes my longing even greater! The palette of natural and earthy tones with the mix of warm lighting and airy, translucent curtains – makes up an incredibly serene interior atmosphere. I want to...

Read the article “ELEKTRONISTA’S YNDLINGSBLOGS LIGE NU – DEM SKAL DU KENDE” here! Travel Habit was mentioned under the category “Travel“. We are very...
Singapore - a vibrant multicultural experience!

Singapore – a vibrant multicultural experience!

We have been travelling in Asia for the last six weeks, and on our way from Bali to Osaka we had a two night stop-over in Singapore. I reckon most people – just like us – mostly use Singapore as a hub for other travel destinations and only stay here for one or two nights....
How to: Spend your Summer in Tuscany

How to: Spend your Summer in Tuscany

We decided to spend our holiday in beautiful Tuscany and rented a house in the hills above Lucca. We arrived at our house a bit later than expected because we drove from Munich and got caught in the traffic chaos, which heaps up around the motorway exits to Lake Garda (another popular destination). So plan...

Itoh Dining - Kobe Beef Restaurant in Kyoto

Itoh Dining – Kobe Beef Restaurant in Kyoto

Earlier this week, we had dinner at this amazing restaurant in Kyoto, Itoh Dining. Dining out in Japan can be quite a challenge: the menu is most likely only available in Japanese, there are soooo many dining options and food you wouldn’t see in Europe! Being in the Western Honshu area of Japan and less...

Yes a peculiar name for a very beautiful mountain! The area is called Garmisch-Partenkirchen where a chain of mountains surrounds these two cosy little towns – and the area turns into a skiing resort in winter time. It also has Germany’s highest mountain ‘Zugspitze‘ at 2961 m.! We decided we would trek all the way...

Ballooning over Tuscany

Ballooning over Tuscany

I just came back from my holiday in Lucca, Tuscany, and one of the most amazing things we did on this trip was to fly in a hot air balloon. Approx. 1000 meters above ground and in our case over the clouds, we experienced a scenery like no other I have ever seen. The air...
