When the weather turns bad, what can you do? Stay at home or escape. We chose the later and drove to Berlin for a short escape. The weather was beautiful, the city full of people, and the food in our beloved Japanese noodle-bar excellent again! Every visit reveals some surprising findings:

After the stop-over in the “Franken”-Land (Germany), we’ve been heading down the road towards the Salzburger Land in Austria and visited – of course – Salzburg to take a look at Mozart’s birthplace and the astonishing, old town center (World Heritage).

We concluded the short break with alpine retreat in Kappl, Tryol.

Bamberg is known for its smoked beer (Rauchbier) and is hosting eight breweries. With its lovely old town, narrow allies, and surrounding nature, it is worth paying a visit.

Barcelona

Gaudi made this city like no others in the world. If there was something similar somewhere, it would be just an imitation of his works. It was the first trip we made in 2008, just wanted to get away from the cold and depressing Denmark for a while. On the day when we were in Montserrat, we got a call from our parents.
