A coffee table book full of upgrades

Complimentary Hotel upgrades

Much like for you, for me the internet has been my primary source of discovery when it comes to new destinations and hotels since years. Still, when I first found out about “Upgrade to Heaven”, I knew I had to have it. It is a wonderful and inspiring coffee table book with many high quality wanderlust photographies of first-class luxury hotels that keep A and me ever inspired. But it even gets better as “Upgrade to Heaven” also contains full 50 complimentary upgrade vouchers to every hotel that gets introduced inside the book.

With the book you receive a small black card with an individual code that …

Tokyo: The ultimate area guide (Part 2)

Tokyo Sky Deck City View

Welcome to the second part of my Tokyo area guide. Find out all about the city’s most exciting neighbourhoods and what we loved most about them.

Roppongi

We started our tour of Roppongi by visiting Roppongi Hills. The area feels modern and offers one of the best opportunities to spot Tokyo Tower. We also decided to skip the crowds at Tokyo Skytree (located in Sumida) and go for Tokyo Sky Deck on top of the Mori Tower instead. We visited the Sky Deck on a beautiful and sunny day and enjoyed an amazing 360 degree view of the city. There were almost no other …

Tokyo: The ultimate area guide (Part 1)

Shinjuku Tokyo City Area Guide

This spring A and I travelled to Japan. We started our journey in Tokyo and spent four amazing days in the city during cherry blossom season. Tokyo is huge and can feel overwhelming at times if you visit it for the first time. For us, it was helpful to structure our trip focusing on one or two neighbourhoods a day. Here is a guide to the different areas we visited and some details we especially loved about each of them.

Shibuya

It is pretty sure that every tourist will – literally – come across Shibuya while being in Tokyo for the first time. Shibuya crossing …

Hotel Review: Hilton Tokyo Shinjuku

Deluxe Room Hilton Tokyo

Before heading to Okinawa, A & I spent four days in Tokyo. It was rather difficult to figure out the best hotel in Tokyo. First and foremost, my impression was that a lot of hotels look alike, which did not simplify the choice. Most rooms are very reduced, almost minimal and they are usually small. We have chosen the Hilton Tokyo Shinjuku as our home for Tokyo and have not regretted the decision.

It’s all about location

One of my main travel tips for Tokyo would be to choose the hotel based on location. The city is absolutely huge and widespread. While we did most …

The Best Bars with a View

Mandarin Oriental Bar Las Vegas

When it comes to sipping a delicious cocktail or a bubbly glass of champagne, I love a good view. From big city lights to amazing skylines – here are my favourite bars with a view.

Mandarin Bar in Las Vegas

Located on the 23rd floor of my all time favourite Vegas hotel, Mandarin Bar (pictured in the title image) offers breathtaking views of the Strip through floor-to-ceiling windows. Come for sundowners and watch the city’s neon lights turn on while sipping one of their signature cocktails. I recommend to try the Un-Usual Negroni, an eclectic mix of orange zest, Plymouth Gin, Lillet Blanc …

Hotel Review: The Serras Barcelona

The Serras Hotel Barcelona Rooftop Pool

Our recent weekend trip to Barcelona was my Christmas gift for A and I chose The Serras, a new boutique hotel I’d heard fabulous things about. And as it turns out, the praise was more than justified. We spent three sunny days in the city and The Serras definitely felt like a home away from home.

In the heart of Barcelona

When it comes to the wide range of hotels in Barcelona The Serras is a hidden gem in the heart of the city. It’s located at the edge of the Gothic Quarter overlooking Port Vell. We loved that El Born as well as …

Review of Emirates Business Class

Emirates Business Class

When it comes to Business Class in air travel, the one by Emirates is quite popular amongst travelers. Although all gulf carriers are known to have high-end products for Business and First, I find Emirates to be very convenient. They offer a “reasonable” pricing and have one of the best international networks to connect you to virtually any popular destination. In this post I want to share my personal experiences of my Emirates business class flights with you.

The chauffeur service

Pre-flight part of the experience is the complimentary chauffeur drive to and from the airport for many destinations. You are going to be picked up at …

Anti Pollution Beauty Ampoules

Anti Pollution Ampoules Schrammek

As I travel a lot the right skin care is highly important for me. I recently turned 30 and am now even more conscious about finding the right products to keep my skin healthy and good-looking. Especially when spending a lot of time in planes or wandering through big cities, I want to make sure my skin is protected. At the same time, I often travel with carry-on luggage and can’t take tons of cosmetics with me. So I was thrilled when I found Dr. med. Christine Schrammek’s new Anti Pollution Ampoules. They support the skin’s natural protection mechanisms against environmental influences and make …
