My weekend with friends at a mountain chalet

•••
Have you ever traveled with a group of friends? I have been fantasizing of renting a chalet in the mountains and bringing a bunch of my friends. A place where we could sit together until late at night, drinking wine by the fireplace, brunching on the terrace on a sunny day and skinny-dipping in the sauna followed by a bath in the snow. Sounds too good to be[...]

Our magical Winter-Getaway at Kaiserlodge in Tyrol

•••
The Kaiserlodge had popped into my feed every now and again for years already. It was clearly a popular destination for winter and I had one too many times marveled at its beautiful lagoon pool and the classic, yet modern interior. Naturally I was excited when the invitation rolled around to go check it out for myself! I quickly purchased my train tickets, s[...]

I'd like to tell you about an easy weekend getaway from Vienna that brings you to the Austrian-Hungarian border. The region around Lake Neusiedl is as far away from the high peaks of the Alps as possible, and is one of Austria's flattest, driest an[...]

8 Reasons to Visit Linz and Upper Austria

•••
If you had asked me a year ago about my relationship with Austria’s third biggest city, Linz, I would have answered, without a doubt: “It’s complicated.” Being born in the neighboring Salzburg, famous for its Baroque architecture and sophisticated culture, I haven’t always held the best views about Linz, which in the past was mostly known for i[...]

Why You Should Go on A Pilgrimage At Least Once In Your Life

•••
We started out at midnight, clad in giant raincoats and gaiters, headlamps securely sitting on our foreheads. Hundreds of little circles of light were bobbing through the night, building a steady chain starting from somewhere atop the first mountain and reaching towards the end point of our pilgrimage, 55 kilometers, 17 hours, and three more mountains away.[...]
