Valentine’s Day in Vienna

Uncategorized|

We all hate it, or at least we usually consort with the type of people in our friend networks in whose company we are supposed to hate it: Valentine’s Day. Then again, sometimes we love it, because it’s just this different kind of holiday which you can even choose to cherish or ignore.  Therefore sometimes social situations come up where you need to act out of line with what you truly believe and come up with a “romantic” gesture, a “kitschy” small present or the “spontaneous” idea to grab the most “flowery” drink at the perfect bar, located in the most scenic spot.

Day Trips from Vienna – Krems an der Donau

Uncategorized|

Krems is a  clash between young & hip and historical & traditional Austria. The student town is located right next to the Danube, about 80km northwest of Vienna. If you’re looking to explore the white wine region of Lower Austria and combine the experience with a little culture further off the beaten track museums in Vienna – Krems might just be the place to visit. Also, the traditional “Heurigen” culture with delicious Austrian food draws many people towards the countryside west of Vienna. End your day with a walk along the Danube at sunset and a white-wine-drink at one of the hip places. […]

Machu Picchu: De-touristing a tourist destination

Uncategorized|

The “Lost City of the Incas” is one of the most frequented sights in South America due to its enormous importance to the Incan Empire, which reigned for about 100 years under different emperors. Their history brought up many myths which evolve around the the Virgins of the Sun the Sun Gate & guinea pigs. Yes, guinea pigs. Still, many backpackers leave out Machu Picchu because of the comparably high cost to even get there. This blog post will show ways to get off the grid on your way to the touristy Inca ruins. […]

Language Hacks – learn anything in any language

Uncategorized|

Because understanding locals makes your travel experience so much better. “So the bus is going where?” “There?” “Now? No? Later?” “When?” Does that seem familiar? Standing at a bus station in a foreign country, gesticulating to find out where and when your very much needed transportation mode is leaving. It is kind of the same experience as standing at a market and ordering [random number shown with your fingers] of that “thing” you just pointed at vigorously, which in total costs an amount you wouldn’t even dare to ask, because how on earth would you understand the answer to “How much?”.
