A second chance in Ljubljana

The first time I “visited” Ljubljana was in August 2012, on my way from Munich to a last minute and unplanned trip to Croatia. I did not check the weather, nor chose the hotel carefully as I normally do, so of course it wasn’t a surprise that it really didn’t work out. W, me and […]

When in Germany do as the Germans do

When living in another country, I can’t help but observe the local culture and people’s habits. Since I married a German and moved to Germany in 2012, that’s exactly what I have been doing.

The fairy-tale castle: Neuschwanstein
