On the last day of our trip in Greece, I encountered quite a big problem; I had seen everything I wanted to see in Athens and I still had an entire afternoon and evening to fill. I'm not someone who can just sit around and do nothing all day, so google to the rescue! I… Continue reading By public transport from Athens to the Temple of Poseidon in Sounion
If on our second day we had followed our initial planning, we would have just used the public buses to get around Santorini. Since those buses are not frequent at all, that would have meant seeing only a small part of the island. Luckily the host of our Airbnb, Oia's sunset studio, informed us of… Continue reading Rent a car to discover more of the island of Santorini

Here you hike through the meadows to the beautiful view over two lakes. You can even go… Continue reading The must-do hike in Nauders; Goldseen
When your parents offer you to join them for free on their trip to Austria, it's impossible to pass on that. After some 'Puss-in-Boots'-eyes at work, I was allowed to take some extra days off during the busy summer and tag along for a week of fun in the Kaunertal. For seven days we stayed… Continue reading Day hike to the tripoint from Nauders
