This blog is about sharing my travel experience with you including quality travel photography & videos. This is a place to find inspiration and tips for your next trip!
Why would you read my travel blog rather than one of the others? Unlike other travel websites, you won’t find sponsored content or paid trips here.
I know everybody has its own interpretation of what the perfect form of travel looks like. Maybe it is a road trip in Iceland, a gap year in America or helping the Third World countries. But I am sure that we all share one opinion – travel allows us to escape the day-to-day live, to discover other cultures and people.

We spent two weeks backpacking through Cuba. At the beginning, I took a little to getting used to it as the life there is way different than ours here in Austria but when our time was up, I didn’t want to go home.
The best way to get to know the city as well as the people living there is to stay with locals. Cubans are so full of energy. The dance, the music – their whole history and culture is amazing.
We missed nothing during our voyage as we wandered through tobacco and coffee plantations, we talked a lot with the locals as they were really communicative, we explored the different cities and we spent a wonderful day at one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen – Cayo Levisa.
First time in America
For me it was the first time in America and I can say, Miami is quite a good start to experience the United States. From world class beaches, gorgeous Art Deco architectures as well as famous nightclubs you will find everything you need. We experienced 6 exciting days in Miami and I guess that’s the perfect amount of days you need to see all the highlights.
A night paddleboard tour is the ultimate experience in Miami Beach. There you can enjoy all the colors of the sunset behind the City of Miami. It’s unforgettable! >I have some pictures from our paddling tour in my gallery for you<
Perfect days in Milan
This year a friend made a trip to Milan. For me it was the first time that I visited this beautiful city and after these 5 days I can really recommend it to everyone. I personally think the city has everything you need for a little break. The centre is pretty with the magnificent cathedral which takes centre stage. The restaurants are amazing – delicious italian food – and you have world-class shopping possibilities + I’ve never seen a city where people are as well-dressed as in Milan.
If you haven’t been there yet or you just want to see pictures of Milan – check my portfolio!

In mid-August I spent four days in the small holiday village Vodice. For everybody who has as much geographical imagination as I have – it is a small town which lies between Sibenik and Biograd on the coast of Dalmatia with approximately 9.000 inhabitants.
So what can I say about this small but picturesque holiday resort especially from the photographer view? The promenade which is 4 km long and the historic city are worth seeing. My deepest impression of Vodice has been the hexagons which sit on the coastline. I can say that these sea side hexagons are a must see for all photographers as they build a perfect shoot with the crystal clear sea and the mountains in the background. The second thing which is really advisable is a one-day boat trip to the Krka waterfalls. This place is amazing; it is a natural park where you can make a one hour walking tour. But the most beautiful thing about it is the river which flows through the park and builds seven waterfalls. It’s the perfect photo scene! After a successful shooting day delicious food is one more thing you will never miss in Vodice. Alongside the promenade numerous restaurants and bars invite to spend one evening at the port. The dinner is superb and perfect for everyone who loves fish and seafood. But don’t worry they also offer excellent meat. To sum up, Vodice provides a lot of lovely photo scenes and the chance to really relax.

3 days in Budapest
I took advantage of the Easter holiday to drive to Hungary’s largest city – Budapest. I was quite excited to arrive in Budapest, first because I hadn’t been there before + I also felt a little uneasy as we booked our accommodation with Airbnb and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from it. How it was? Great, the apartment had everything you need and our host gave us also free breakfast voucher < I love breakfast > Beside the well booked accommodation and the good food we visited a lot of sights in Budapest.
What we have done in the city…
- We went to Castle Hill as there is really much to see like the Royal Palace, Matthias Fountain & Church and Fisherman’s Bastion – from there you have a wide view of the city and its perfect for taking pictures.
- Next we walked up to the historic Gellért Hill. This is another great place to enjoy a beautiful view.
- Heroes square was also included in our todo-list
Other places we visited…
- Budapest zoo
- Streetfood Market
- House of terror
- Danube Promenade
We spent 3 interesting and enjoyable days in Budapest. Even though I felt like we saw a lot in three days, I still think Budapest has much more to offer. I guess it wasn’t my last visit.
