A hotel in Myanmar, being sportive in Kaliningrad, flying with TAP Portugal, testing a new hotel chain, visiting the beautiful Swedish city of Malmö and much more before we arrived in Winter Wonderland on Friday. Again, we wrote many articles about our experiences all around the world to make you part of our experiences and to give you a guide when travelling. Check out our newest look back! You know Nay Pyi Taw? Even though… Read More

After some very cold days and before departing back home, we enjoy some time in the Finnair Lounge at Helsinki Airport. One of the best lounges we’ve paid a visit to so far in Europe!

Sometimes you are lucky with the weather and sometimes you are not. In Gdansk, I had the feeling that I was blessed and deuced at the very same time. When I went running in the beautiful Polish port city, the sun was either shining or it was raining and very cloudy. Even though the weather was not any consistent, the run was a real joy – some beautiful pictures are the result!… Read More

Losing a great view, but gaining a better location: For our second night in Helsinki, we changed from the Hilton Kalastajatorppa to the Hilton Strand, both in Helsinki. Each of them has advantages and some weaknesses, which we will point out more exactly later on. By now, here is how the room we got at the Hilton Strand Helsinki looks like.

The airport of Kaliningrad is only the 18th biggest in Russia. When you have the pleasure to visit the Russian enclave, you’ll see why. The airport is enormously small and there are only a few offered destinations. Most flights are either going to Moscow, Saint Petersburg or Minsk. Moreover, Air Berlin connects Kaliningrad with the German hub Berlin. If you’ll fly to Kaliningrad anyway, you should definitely check out this airport guide as… Read More

Just arrived in Winter Wonderland! This is the stunning view from our room at the Hilton Kalastajatorppa in Helsinki, Finland. Actually, there should be parts of the sea, which are now completely frozen and covered with snow. While the world outside is painted white, we spend our first hours here in the Hilton Kalastajatorppa. A very cozy room with a great view!

Malmö is a small, very cute town in Sweden. Maybe not that small, as it is the third biggest city of Sweden. However, we did not have the feeling to be in a big city, as Malmö still does not have the flair of it. Strolling through the city, admiring the interesting buses, seeing different sides and faces of Malmö, freezing due to the cold November month and finally eating a great… Read More

In some cities, searching for a luxury hotel is tough. In Kaliningrad for example, there is not a single five star hotel. Even though the city is not really small, the “best” hotel (judging from Tripadvisor ratings) is the Radisson Blu Kaliningrad. We decided to take the chance and test the hotel for a two night stay when visiting the Russian city. Check out our rating for the Radisson Blu Kaliningrad! The… Read More

Flying TAP Portugal (TP) means getting up early for me. I flew with them twice, once in 2013 and once in 2014. Both times the flights were early in the morning, yet the experience was a good one. On the long flight on Christmas Eve 2014, the seating was so comfortable that most passengers fell asleep immediately. Due to that, only few guests enjoyed the little breakfast offered for free. Check out how we… Read More
