About Moritz

I’ve always loved traveling and the utlimate pleasure of visiting all continents in the last few years. Yet, I can never get enough and thus travel to several different places each month. Personally, I love reviewing hotels and airlines. That’s why I mainly provide these for traveluxblog! Moreover, I do like helping other travelers to enjoy their experiences more. Due to that, I also write lots of guides about airports andΒ transportation systems in cities all over the world.

My first travel experiences led me to the United States as a baby, but ever since I’ve been a teenager, I’ve got absolutely crazy about traveling. Besides visiting dozens of countries in Europe, I traveled toΒ the US and China in 2014 and to Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and South Africa in 2015. Things really escalated in 2016, where I took several long haul trips to countries like Brazil, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines. At the same time, I’ve also crossed a few more countries in Europe off my list and also visited new cities in countries I’ve already been to.

In my “other” life, I’ve been studying Political Science for my Bachelor and European Studies for my Master and worked at institutions like the European Union, but also in journalism. Currently, I’m working as a freelancer writing search engine optimized texts for clients in Germany and abroad. Moreover, I’m helping clients of mine planning travel experiences and provide a broad audience in Germany with travel tips and deals on reisetopia.de!

  2. Moritz, do you mind me asking if this is your full-time job, getting paid to travel and write about your experiences? I see above that you used to do that. If so, you are very fortunate!

    • Hey Katrina, sadly no, it isn’t. I’m currently “working” on my Master’s degree at University. Moreover, I’m a freelance writer what makes it possible for me to travel a lot (I’m trying to be at a new place every weekend). Maybe I’ll be able to fund some trips through travel blogging or any other paid jobs in the travel industry but for the moment that’s no source of income for me. It’s just the hobby I really love πŸ™‚

    • Hey Lily,

      we got a search right on the upper right side (when opening an article) or the upper left side (right unter “About Us) on the front page.

      But let me answer that for you in person: We don’t have a piece on the South of Spain on the blog, yet. However, I’ve been to Andalusia and most cities in Spain alreday, so I may be able to help you anyway. Feel free to ask me anything πŸ™‚

      • wow thanks for the quick reply! we are going on a last minute adventure for 9 days to South of Spain! πŸ™‚ So i would have 2 questions ( i tried to find an email to write you but didn’t’ find one on this site, think i’m bad search!:)
        1. any recommendations for something that you did / went / experience that is not on the typical list of must see palaces/ etc in south of spain? something off the beaten path, or maybe on the mainstream but less popular but that you absolutely loved and why not. like if someone was going and you would say you HAVE to go here, most people don’t… πŸ™‚
        2. any recommendations for restaurants / places to eat! ? were going by ronda / sevilla / cordoba /granada / malaga. even one restaurant in any one place will be helpful πŸ™‚ i just haaaate spending on random mediocre food and we haven’t bought a travel guide for this place (not sure if we will).

        ok thats already a lot! thank you in advance Mortitz πŸ™‚

      • It would be traveluxblog@gmail.com for any more questions. But for the moment, it’s no problem to answer these here πŸ˜‰

        Well, I’d say in Sevilla it is just roaming around the old town and enjoying the atmsophere. It’s one of my favorite cities and Spain, not because of any attractions, but because of the flair. Be sure to go out by night and grab some tapas in one of the little streets. For Cordoba and Granada, I’d recommend to follow the beaten track. The historic landmarks (especially the Mezquita) are very impressive indeed. What i would not visit is Malaga. For me personally, Malaga is the most boring and dreadful city in Spain. Instead, you should go to Marbella with its many divine restaurants, the historic center and the nice beaches. Sadly, I don’t have any recommendations for Ronda as I haven’t been there yet. And for restaurants… well, I’d check if I fine anything, but at the moment I can’t remember anything particular (it’s been three years that I’ve been to Andalusia). Usually, you are fine when checking out Tripadvisor and visit the really traditional restaurants (where everyone is only speaking Spanish). That’s always a good sign πŸ™‚

  7. hi Moritz, thank you for this esp the heads up on Malaga! we are arriving in malaga in the afternoon and staying the evening cos there is a huge easter parade so thought that might be interesting. but we also have pretty much a whole day + overnight on the day when we return the car before 12 pm wheras our flight is next morning, so knowing this we will try instead to do a day trip from malaga to somewhere πŸ™‚ And i will look up Marbella! πŸ™‚ thanks v much ! and are you travelling around this easter too ? πŸ™‚

      Well, we are a little busy with the blog and some other stuff at the moment, so we’ll just go for two short trips: A weekend getaway to Berlin (Easter weekend) and a city trip to Stockholm (the weekend after Easter) πŸ™‚

  8. Berlin! we were there last easter! (i shared our pics on our personal blog at lilyandtom.wordpress.com if you are interested:)) i do recommend very highly to eat 1 dinner at vietnamese place http://www.monsieurvuong.de. We tried the spring rolls, the wonton soup (quite chinese but v good), and the BEST Beef Pho i’ve had in Europe!!! They are very reasonably priced , and its quite central. But it was v crowded, we went v late, it was past 9 and we still waited about 15-20 mins (but the good thing was we could occupy the table and have tea and cocktails afterwards, and its v nice to sit on the outside tables as the inside is v small). They have a very nice selections of cocktails to go with your dinner, and tea for after dinner! And we also ate a dessert, i don’t remember what it was, but it was SOO GOOD, even though i don’t like asian desserts! some kind of custard i think it was. But yes, its only a place to go if you like Asian food πŸ™‚

    Another place we ate a snack at is: http://www.tadshikische-teestube.de
    I wouldn’t say it’s a must go but nice to take a break to sit after a lot of walking. i had an iced tea there – that was really dreadful. but my husband had a tea with vodka with peanuts soaked in vodka. i don’t know if its any authentic, but i guess they try to emulate, and it was intersting. but i did like their BORSCHT soup. i’ve not been to russia so i don’t have something to compare but i liked it cos they used a lot of beet root.

    Have a good trip Moritz!
