Katja CITY BREAKS, IRELAND 12 Comments

A weekend trip to Dublin? Why didn´t we think of it before. For this year´s birthday I have, as the past years, chosen to take a little city trip because I prefer new memories & experiences instead of material presents. I wished it to be somewhere I have not been before. Dublin seemed to be an easy choice and the …

Bamberg, a lovely picturesque town, situated somewhere between Nürnberg and Würzburg is a great place to visit for a weekend or for a stop while travelling around Germany. The city is also on the list of UNESCO´s World Heritage, for good reasons. You can visit in all months of the year – this time, we spent a nice Autumn sunny …

Our December 3-days weekend trip to Copenhagen was just one of the best. In this short visit, we have really gotten the impression that we could have easily live here for a year or two. Yes, it is expensive, but yes, it is totally worth the money! We had our share of rain, sun, wind, cold, sweating on the bicycle, …

Due to our separation …

Last weekend we spent a couple of days in Bonn, the FORMER CAPITAL OF WEST GERMANY  which is situated in the largest German metropolitan area, close to Cologne, Düsseldorf, Dortmund and others. It was perhaps the last really warm sunny weekend of this summer and we´re happy we used it for this short trip.

Katja CITY BREAKS, FAMILY TRAVELS, SINGAPORE Leave a Comment

It´s big, it´s clean, it´s green, its has some AMAZING ARCHITECTURE, great RESTAURANTS and (from what we heard) NIGHTLIFE. And if you feel too claustrophobic between all the big SKYSCRAPERS you can easily escape to one of the BEACHES or PARKS nearby. I was in Singapore when I was 14 years old and everything looked soooo big back then – …
