London for the weekend

weltenbummler

We booked a promotional fare with easyjet to London Gatwick and strangely return from Luton Airport. This kind of thing reminds me, how huge London City has grown. Four airports offer service to travelers (City of London, Heathrow, Gatwick & Luton). Gatwick express runs every 20 minutes into the city […]

Nando’s, London

Yeah I know, it’s a chain. But hey, when do you have the chance to eat something really rare (or exotic)? See, don’t think of Nando’s like of McDonald’s, because it is a completely different experience. First of all, it is an actual restaurant. The staff is bending over backwards […]

Market Thai, London

Only 2 blocks down from the movie-famous “Blue door” in Notting Hill the Restaurant Market Thai has recently re-opened for business. It is located on the first floor (entrance is 10m in the side street). The food is very delicious. Our order consist of Kaeng Dang veggie style, a Thai curry […]

The eventful history of the Penisula has had many hights and lows, but Sirmione has never lost its magic. Be there Romans or Cimbrians, Goths or Avars, Scaligers or Venetians, all where touched by its fabulous charm. The island reaches out on Lake Garda like an arm. The Romans had built two […]

Where Romeo & Juliet have met

Although it’s most famous as the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Verona has much more to offer. Verona isn’t short of sights besides  Juliet’s “balcony” and “tomb.” Northern Italy is full of beautiful towns and UNESCO World Heritage sites,  and Verona is definitely on the top of that list. The small city is located between Venice an Milano at […]

Van der Valk Airport

Modern hotel building a few kilometers from the international airport of Düsseldorf. The rooms on the 13th floor – yeah, we in Germany aren’t superstitious – are all suits with huge windows. Two white leather chairs prominently invite for a sit in taking in the view. A little welcome gift […]

Ruby Marie, Vienna

weltenbummler

Stylish is the word coming to mind when rating Ruby Marie Hotel. Located at the main train station and the shopping mile Mariahilferstr. it is easy to reach. While the main entrance is easy to miss, it’s worth a closer look. A dark theme seems to be the proper description, but […]
