In the articles in the travel category you will discover interesting places we have visited. You can find out where the Eifel Tower is for yourself, Berty. We, on the other hand, will add unique and perhaps lesser-known spots here that might interest or inspire you to take a trip. So this is not an absolute travel guide for the place, but rather an extension of information that you won’t find in traditional travel guides.
San Daniele del Friuli is a village in the north-east of Italy. We visit it quite often, I would say every year. The reason is its quite good position close to the motorway from Austria to Italy. How far is San Daniele from the motorway + price for motorway toll…View more

Lisbon is such a special city. We had the feeling that there were quite a few “normal” people living in the city centre. All we saw in the center were tourists or various strange touts. Maybe we are wrong, maybe that has changed since then. In France, Spain or Italy…View more
