As a consultant I am a frequent traveler by the virtue of my job. I spend a lot of time on trains, on taxis, at airports and in hotels. Last week I had the chance to stay in the Sofitel in Munich and since I would consider it as one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in, I wanted to share my experience with you.

As you might have guessed from my Instagram posts, I lately spent a week in Germany: I started off in Hamburg, then went down to Dusseldorf and eventually ended my little trip in Frankfurt. I ate German specialties such as Currywurst, saw my first Easter fire, went up the new tower of the European Central Bank and met a lot of friends. Instead of sharing my impressions of each city, I’d rather want to give you tips on how to travel through the country: by plane, train, bus or car sharing. Continue reading
Despite the constant pressure to progress on my thesis, I couldn’t miss out on the chance to leave to Germany last weekend. Such an escape is perfect to turn thoughts off and to enjoy the moment. My trip brought me to Karlsruhe, Stuttgart and a little village in Swabia, where I finally learnt how to play Canasta. Continue reading
Okay, I know that Dusseldorf is not the place to be. And I admit that it is not amongst “1000 places to see before you die”. However as a former resident I want to give you tips for a stay in Dusseldorf. You never know. Continue reading

After the German reunification Berlin presents itself as booming capital. Historic spots, new clubs, fashion week, politics, bohemian streets, … – you will find your place, that’s for sure.
|This morning: I couldn’t resist!|
Sorry for my little delay but due to great weather conditions I couldn’t stop myself from starting this Sunday on the slope. I did Nordic Skating today which was the first time for me and, believe me, my but already hurts immensely. Yet it was total fun and I am up to do it another time this week! Continue reading
A very early good morning my dears!
While I have been quite late the last three weekends, I this time chose to be extra-early for you. Yeah right, this is one of these famous after-party-posts. And as sleep is currently overrated, I told myself to use my productivity. Continue reading
Good morning everyone!
Guess where I am sitting? In a Starbucks-alike coffee bar to get some internet access. My lovely landlord decided to resign our apartment’s contract which is why I will blog from public hotspots the next weeks. No clue where next week will be. Maybe here again: it is rather calm, food and and drinks are good and the staff is friendly. Continue reading
