Wining and Dining in South Tyrol

•••
Having lived relatively close to the ocean for most of my life, I'm used to flat landscapes, moderate coastal climate and a constant breeze. Even during my travels I stayed true to this pattern - with the sunny hills of California being the most unusual environment. With this in mind, you can imagine my amazement when we were approaching the mountains of [...]

Ischgl, Tyrol - of stars and slopes

•••
When the offer rolled in whether I wanted to go on a trip to my home country of Austria, I was already dreaming of sunshine, snow and mountains. Living in Berlin is great but I do sometimes miss the mountains. I was very excited this was happening - soon enough I was on my way to reach the ultimate dream destination in the Alps: Ischgl, Tyrol. Ischgl is a p[...]

10 Reasons why Snowboarding in Laax rocks

"I can see snooooow!!!" - Every year I am looking forward to this day. When suddenly huge snowy mountains appear in front of me. When the landscape slowly turns from looking grey and dusty into a white magic winter wonderland.  That's the time for the first shred, the first ride down a snowy piste and that first true winter feeling.

Winter Holidays in Anzère, Switzerland

•••
While wrapping myself in a thick blanket with a hot water bottle and drinking tea my mind always drifts away to the snow and I can literally see myself shredding down some wicked slopes in the sunshine and finally make use of this icy weather.

Not Just For Winter - The Alps

•••
I am a snowboarder. I am addicted to the rush of cold air that carries me down a mountain. I am a thrill seeker on snow, searching high and low for the perfect powder, pushing my limits so I am faster, stronger, better. Sometimes I fall, sometimes I hurt but always there are the mountains that I love and can't resist and for ten years one mountain range in p[...]

Reaching new heights in the Dolomites

•••
Arrival at Alpe de Siusi began before we got there. On the slow and winding morning ride up to our mountain hut from the charming basecamp at Siusi allo Sciliar, the fog lifted. The mountains peered out, each climb in elevation revealing new shades of green. Even earlier, on a cozy night train (my first since moving to Berlin!) to Munich, I felt the incoming[...]

A weekend away in South Tyrol

•••
Wow, is it really the beginning of October already? Somehow I feel like it was only last week that i put on a flowery dress and cycled to the lake for the first time this year. The truth is though that I spent only fragments of this summer in my hometown of Berlin and instead traveled some really incredible places on four different continents. I owe you stor[...]

How to.... make South Tyrolian dumplings

•••
Whenever I travel there is an array of activities I like to seek out wherever possible. Things I love to do and experience such as rafting, biking, shopping, tasting local specialties and so on. Speaking of local specialties - what's the only thing better than tasting them? To learn how to make them yourself! So whenever I get to a country or region with par[...]
