June 2022

As mentioned, we were in Lausanne for three days. On the second day, we not only visited Aquatis but also explored Lausanne itself.

My stamina is not yet back to normal, and Lausanne is situated on a hill... I only had enough energy to visit two of the parks, but they were really beautiful.


Lake Thun

June 20th to 22th, 2021

The situation has improved, but traveling abroad is still not particularly enticing. Luckily, during our last fall break, we discovered a small oasis of well-being that we used as a starting point for our short vacation. This led to three varied days at lake Thun.



September 14th to 16th, 2020

This year everything is different, even the vacations. Fortunately, Switzerland is such a beautiful country and there are so many beautiful places we haven't visited yet.


While having the car checked, we explored the area and then head towards Lake Thun!



July 6th to 19th, 2020

Europe is slowly getting a grip on the Corona situation, but it is still better to stay in one's own country.


However, everyone still needs vacation time, and Switzerland is a beautiful country! That's why this year, vacations will be spent close to home.



October 14th to November 1st, 2019

When is the ideal time to go on vacation in Japan? Apparently, two days after the most devastating typhoon in 60 years hit the main island of Japan...

At least we knew afterwards that I needed a new rain jacket - always look at the bright side of life!



September 10th to August 18th, 2017

I've been to Japan in the winter and during cherry blossom season in the spring. Four years later, it was time for summer: from Osaka to Hiroshima, then to Kyūshū, and finally Nagasaki and Huis Ten Bosch.


And yes, the weather was pleasantly warm!



September, 2016

Student life has its beautiful sides: another long weekend to travel!
This time the trip went to Leipzig.



June 25th to July 2nd, 2016

How did my mother convince me to take a second vacation to Iceland?

With puffins!!!


And yes, she really had to convince me, the sulfur smell in Iceland is not my thing...



April 2016

Thanks to the SBB offer, another short trip over the weekend, this time to Venice.


City Trip

July 4th to 14th, 2015

With an InterRail pass, we embarked on a 10-day city trip from Nuremberg to Prague to Vienna.



January 29th to February 3rd, 2015

My parents took us to Essaouira to celebrate my successful Bachelor's degree. We didn't get to sleep in, but it was still an interesting and relaxing vacation.



April 25th & 26th, 2014

A short weekend trip to Bellinzona. On the first day, we climbed up to the two castles, and on the second day, we made a detour to the falconry in Locarno.



Easter 2013

Few months after my first trip, I immediately set out for Japan again:


Cherry Blossoms



January 25th to February 17th, 2013

My first trip to Japan. A beautiful country where I felt really comfortable - of course, I also had a very special tour guide!

The weather was surprisingly good, except when the cold wind added to the cold temperature, it became a little uncomfortable.


Genoa, Italy

July 2012

A rather spontaneous, long weekend in Genoa, Italy - thanks to a summer promotion by the Swiss Federal Railways. Both Genoa itself and the aquarium were worth visiting.



Feburary 2012

Together with my mother and a travel group, we went on a hunt for the Northern Lights. We were lucky: the first day had moderate activity, so we could learn everything important without missing anything. The following nights were when it really started happening. And during the day, we hunted for other things...


Glacier Express

January 2012

Last minute change of plans, not by our own doing, but due to an issue with the SBB:

Instead of riding the Glacier Express on our way to the destination, we ended up zigzagging through Switzerland and missing every single connection - all because of a small issue with the tracks near Dietikon.


Trip along the Rhine

June 2011

My last short trip before a long period of studying for my exams begins. Together with my mother, we drove along the Rhine and explored various castles - we even stayed in one - until we reached the Burger Zoo at the top in the Netherlands.




In theory, we wanted to see the famouse lavender fields. Unfortunately, we had the kind of luck where we heard "they have already faded" and "they are yet to come" at the same time.

Nonetheless, it was a beautiful weekend in Provence!


Phoenix & Bosten

April 2010

Our trip was supposed to be for a single week. A few days for a conference, some days afterwards to enjoy the USA and then back home. 

Well, iceland had other plans: We had to add additional days in Bosten. They were cold, wet and unpleasant...



7. - 16. July 2009

My first trip to Iceland! Our first journey followed the Ring Road, so we saw "a little bit of everything" - with ulterior motives to learn what we like best, for the next time.

However, sulfur fields are definitely not one of them...
