Our weekend trip to Edinburgh and 7 things you probably didn’t know about Scottish whisky

Walking towards Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh Last Friday around noon we hopped on a plane to fly up to Edinburgh until Sunday night. It was the first time in Scotland for both of us, so we happily embarked on a full-on tourist adventure. Castle, ghost tour and more We walked around the Royal Mile, checking out every shop along the way, and we tried to visit Edinburgh castle but backtracked after we saw the masses waiting outside to buy tickets. To be fair, we must have picked the busiest time and day to do this.

What an experience! Since then, you've been travelling to various places. Where are you at the moment? We live in Vienna at the moment because Brian is doing his Masters at the WU (University of Economics). Sometimes coming back to the roots is nice too :-) 3.

Hello there!

I'm Alex and this is my travel and lifestyle blog. I suffer from Destinesia. I also call it go-with-the-flow travelling. It's when you have a travel itinerary but then you meet someone and change your plans completely or you just love a place so much you stay much longer than expected. You just go with what feels right. This is what happened to me in Nicaragua. You can read more about it here.

I'm also a writer/copywriter/translator. Here you can find a link to my online portfolio and my CV. I'm always looking for new projects and interesting collaborations. Check here for more contact details and get in touch:

Enjoy looking around here for some inspiration and most of all, have fun exploring the world!

Packing list

You're going on a trip but don't know what to pack? For some reason you always end up with way too much? Don't worry, this happened to me so many times.

Here some tips:


  • Travel light. Pack versatile clothes and shoes and use travel-sized cosmetics for a hassle-free trip

  • Roll your clothes and stuff your shoes with socks and stockings

  • Plastic bags double up as shoe covers and storage for dirty clothes

Check out my article about smart packing for more tips. It definitely helps to print out a packing list you can check off, so you don't forget anything important.
