As you know I grew up in the western part of the fantastic city Vienna in Austria. Due to its infrastructure and cool vibe its standard of living is incredibly high. My by far favourite thing about the city is that whether I boarded the tram towards the centre or the outskirts, I would reach either in about 20 minutes. Therefore going for a hike, a …

Last year I wrote an article called 21 Reasons to Love Rotterdam. It went a little bit viral, with nearly 4000 shares, 40+ comments, several emails and an invitation from a Rotterdam company asking me to speak at one of their conferences.
As a young(ish) British woman living in Amsterdam, but loving Rotterdam from afar, it was a strange experience, but it was also testament to the community spirit to be found …

Ten years ago options for veggie dining in Prague were nearly non-existent. When I committed to visiting a month ago I figured I would have a hard time finding vegan fare. After only a few minutes of research, however, it became apparent that Prague could not only accommodate my love of greens, but that it had more options than I could possibly sample during my two-week stay there. I envisioned …

Melbourne is arguably, and most rightly so, one of the top most liveable cities in the world! I lived there for nearly three years and it is definitely a place that stole my heart – I’ll always think about it with affection and hope of returning. One of the many reasons why I love it is that it is so diverse with a multitude of suburbs that would suit any …

“Waterfall? No one said anything about a waterfall before.” My heart skipped a beat and my already compressed chest trapped in a neoprene suit felt even worse. I was sitting in a rafting boat with a group of people who had (like me) never done this before. With only 30 minutes to go on our tour we thought the worst was already over when they made us jump into the …

Spain’s economy isn’t exactly thriving at the moment. In fact, its unemployment rate for under 25 year-old’s is at a staggering 54% (!) (the overall employment rate lying at 25%) which beats most other European countries. So that’s not a very tempting climate to take risks and turn your biggest passion into a job, right? Except that, for Silvia Cabra, it is. Silvia and her boyfriend, Javi Ruz, showed some …

Mumbai is the Indian city of dreams. It is home to the glittery theatre and film industry, financial centre of one of th world’s strongest growing economies, and on top of all that fashion capital of India. It is as diverse as its people – the richest man of the country lives here, and the area Dharavi is the biggest slum of all Asia. You will start noticing this blatant …

 One of the best parts of being a daredevil travelette? Receiving an invitation to discover a stunning place before other venturous souls begin to wander into the hidden gem. Nothing can beat the feeling of being today’s Christopher Columbus. Besides, could there be anything better than taking a selfie in front of the top notch views and superb seascapes months before the masses?
Teeny sparks of traditional Italy can still be …

When the Tourist Board of Colombo handed me a map of the city, they spontaneously highlighted:

The famous Colombo Fort
The National Museum
Three shopping malls.

Wait. Was that all there was to the Sri Lankan capital? Two tourist landmarks—and chain stores? Thankfully, that was untrue: by exploring a little, I actually gathered 12 cool things to do in Colombo—if you’ve got a few days planned there on your way to the inland and …

Until recently, I had never been to Spain. Whenever talking to someone about Spain,  I heard about the stunning architecture of Barcelona, the thrilling bull race of Pamplona, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, the volcanic Canary Islands or the party nights on Mallorca and Ibiza. But hardly anybody ever mentions Madrid. Even though it is the Spanish capital, it is barely on people’s radar. Then an invitation to explore …
