Galicia? That’s there somewhere in Poland? Two (almost identical) names cause confusion. The “other” Galicia with “z” actually belongs half to Poland and half to Ukraine and was once closely connected to Austria. But why are the lands (almost) the same? The Spanish Galicia goes back to the Celtic Gallaeker (Latin Gallaeci), a Celto-Iberian people, who settled in the region in ancient times. And Polish Galicia is based on Galich (Latin Galicia), a small town in western Ukraine.
So, let’s go to Spain: Continue reading
Barcelona, the wonderful capital of Catalonia, has a lot to offer its visitors – I’ll tell you what you can not miss there! I have been there for two times and I was never diasppointed! I would like to begin with the most famous attraction – La Sagrada Familia! It is a beautiful church that […]
Budapest bewitches every visitor. Houdini’s hometown is a Rubik’s cube of grand-scale monuments and unfading beauty that holds you captive. A gentle soul emanates from within this city built on imperial strength, and people engage in a high-stakes hustle to claim their own piece of happiness. Continue reading
A diet of waffles, frites, beer and Godiva chocolates: sounds rich – and not just for your arteries. Known for its comics, peeing statues, NATO headquarters, blonde and brown pints, steaming mussels, and Art Nouveau, the “capital” of the European Union has a little bit for a lot of people. The first thing I saw […]
Baiyoke Sky Hotel is the highest hotel in Bangkok and was the most luxury accomodation I had during this vacancy. 5.022 Baht for two person and two nights. It is clean and we got a free upgrade which was wonderful. The hotel has 83 floors and I lived on the 49th. The view was stunning […]
I received a wonderful Bamboo Tattoo made by great artists from Koh Tao Bamboo Tattoo. First I was sceptical, but after having spoken with another tourist I knew that they would do a good job. The stuff is very friendly and there’s only one thing to say: A tattoo made bamboo art is ART! For […]
Koh Tao Tropicana Resort was my favorite place to be in Thailand. It’s on the island Koh Tao and an absolute origin island. There are a lot of diving schools and I already have regrets that I did not make my free diver there. You should do it there. The resort is pretty clean and […]
Shark Bay is a pretty spot where you are able to see a lot of colored fish and little sharks. Unfortunately I saw none of the sharks, but I saw a large turtle instead and this was stunning. There is a nice restaurant on top of the hill and you see down to shark bay […]
Malibu Beach Bungalows are pretty little Bungalows with a hammock on each veranda. They look pretty nice, but they are very small and simple inside. You got a mini fridge and the bathroom is like all the bungalows in Thailand only one room where you flood the whole room by taking a shower. I will […]
This lodge is absolutely extraordinary! I booked three nights for 1.950 Baht and what I got for this was much more than I expected! Let’s start from the beginning: I took the fairy from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan which took me about one hour. They said it would take 30 minutes, but I was […]
This night was an adventure to me. I bought a ticket for the train to move from Bangkok to Surat Thani. It wasn’t expensive at all and I was so excited what would expect me. At first, I thought I would be in the wrong train because of the seats there. I expected to see […]
If you have some time left in Bangkok, you can also take a ride on the Chao Phraia river with the boat. It took me one hour of time and around 650 Bath to do this. Adventure lies just around the riverbend. The winding Chao Phraya River is Bangkoks arterial waterway and main thoroughfare for […]
This was one of the most beautiful holidays I ever made and this was not because of the city itself.
This accomodation is clean, pretty, made with love and has a special flair I can’t describe. The owner was very friendly and uncomplicated. He gave us two bikes to visit the city which is about 5 to 10 minutes away to cycle. The accomodation Continue reading
I visited Zadar in 2015 and it was one of my most beautiful holidays. The accomodation I already recommended was perfect: Villa Karma Zadar; and the city offers so much to see although it is very small and originally. From the accomodation to the city was a nice way along the waterfront which was gave […]
