Kleopatra Ramira Hotel, Alanya 

Kleopatra Ramira Hotel, Alanya 

I stayed in the Kleopatra Ramira Hotel in Alanya with my boyfriend two years ago. We stayed there for 7 nights and when we arrived there at night there was still someone at the reception and a door- and luggage man waiting for us, which was nice.

We choose this hotel, because we planned this trip quite spontaneously, so everything else in our budget was already completely booked. It was the best option for us and also from the pictures and reviews it seemed very nice. Read more!

Berlin Dungeon

Berlin Dungeon

(Unfortunately we weren’t allowed to take pictures on the inside)

I’ve always wanted to go to one of the Dungeons and at my third visit of Berlin we finally also went to the Berlin Dungeon.

For those of you who don’t know the concept of the Berlin Dungeon, I’m going to explain it quickly. The Dungeon is a house where the interior is built with the scenery of the story being told. In this case it is the ancient story of Berlin. Especially the scary parts of it. You enter the story with a group and a narrator and get to know the different stories along the way in the different rooms, with different actors. Read more!

Schloss Hohenschwangau, Schwangau

Schloss Hohenschwangau, Schwangau

Schloss Hohenschwangau was the castle of King Ludwig the 2nd’s parents and this is also where he grew up. This castle is less impressive than Neuschwanstein in my opinion although it also looks nice, but not really like a real castle, at least not a largely impressive one. We took a half hour guided tour in this castle and what is nice is, that it still has the antique furniture and some really valuable presents in the rooms.

An interesting thing is, that the king and the queen were not really living together. The queen lived in the first floor and the king in the second floor and you could really notice that also in the types of rooms the two had in their respective floor. Although this living situation, there is a hidden staircase in the walls, to get directly from one bedroom to the other. Read more!

Schloss Neuschwanstein was started to be built in 1869 by the last Bavarian King Ludwig the 2nd. He started to build it but then was found dead one day in the lake Starnberger See together with his doctor but no one really knows if he took his own life or was killed by someone, as he was spending much money of private investors for his castles.

He died after living in Schloss Neuschwanstein for only 172 days when the castle was still in the building process. After his passing the construction was stopped, and thus the castle is not finished, as some planned parts like a chapel were never built. Also from the inside the castle is not finished and only some of the rooms were furnished and used. Read more!

Chili’s – Morrisville, NC

Chili’s – Morrisville, NC

Throwback to the beginning of the year, when my boyfriend and me ate two amazing dinners at Chili’s in the United States.

We had Texas Cheese Fries as a starter and they were really tasty with the bacon. The ranch dressing was special and really good.
I must say I didn’t like tmy grilled chicken salad much though, the salad itself was good, but I’m quite fussy with chicken to be honest and this chicken just wasn’t my favourite.


The Chicken Bacon Ranch Quesadillas however were really good, so my boyfriend and me swapped dishes. I had never eaten Quesadillas before and I was really amazed by the combination of the hot quesadilla and the cold sour cream. It really fits! Read more!
