And we are back from the heat of New York.

It was an amazing trip to a “bucket list place” we’ve always wanted to go.

August isn’t possible the best time to travel to New York because it was unbelievable hot without any wind in the deep canyons of skyscrapers but it was though amazing.

To see these buildings which look like they grow endless in the sky, the caps you just saw in movies, the move, the rush and the pulse of the city… just inspiring.

We stood at Double Tree by Hilton 36th street, straight next to Times Square. Sweet small hotel, a nice Bed with a good Breakfast. If you wanna live straight in the center but still a little bit less noisy I can recommend this hotel! 5 Minute’s walkway to the Times Square 10 minutes to the highline….


Our days were packed full with sightseeing, shopping and a looot of walking.

I don’t have to tell you how amazing it was standing at the top of the empire state building watching down to all the minions, walking at the highline, visiting the statute of liberty, standing at the famous times square hiking through central park… endless amazing places to visit.

In spite of this amazing places our favorite place to be in this heat was the Hudson… Walking down the river watching all these running people enjoying the breeze and calm down from the city rush.

Also, the GreenLine gives you some kind of the same feeling. More space for yourself (still much tourism there but much more relaxed) and some green and amazing views through the city. Nice spot to walk through!!!

Another highlight for me was the helicopter flight around/above New York. It gives you this amazing view about this giant city… For us, little people from Switzerland it’s just breathtaking how big a city can be. For example, the biggest city in Switzerland is Zürich with around 400.000 residents.

After all that sightseeing, hopping on travel buses, running to Casey Neistats Studio (another Bucketlist thing 😀 ), eating one dollar pizza and amazing steaks at Wolfgangs we wanted to the Niagara Falls. So wake up early, bus ride to a small airport and up in the sky straight to Niagara Falls.

We always wanted to see this giant falls and had to catch the chance to go there. But… I have to say for us it was a liiittle bit disappointing! Of course, the falls are amazing and impressive and we watched it from the bridge, the boat and the heli but… All that tourism, all the buildings, parking spaces, tours… It took all the romantic of this amazing piece of earth for us. So if you have the time go there and make your own experience but I don’t know if I can recommend it… maybe we should have to go to the Canadian side to watch it… But time was not our friend on this little trip, our plane back to New York was waiting.

So… sightseeing – CHECK, exploring New York – CHECK, Niagara Falls – CHECK…. Shopping….. lets go 😀

We took a early bus from central station to Woodbury. I was a little sick but still wanted to go there (you cant tell your girl “we are in new york but shopping… naaaa not this time) DONT DO THAT! 😉 So we went out there and i was glad we did it tough. Woodbury is an amazing outlet city with tons and tons of stores, restaurants and a lot more. Recommend that? YES. If you want to go shopping for less then the half price you would pay in europe go for it 😀

And so far i think / hope i didn’t forget to much.

To resume, it was amazing!

If you haven’t been in NewYork you definitly should take 7-10 days to have a relaxed trip. Try to see as much as you can at the beginning and than take your time to visit the most interessting places again with much time and without any rush (for a fast a nice rush through the city i can recommend the HopOnHop of tours for example from BigBusTours… Nice and not that expensive. You also are allowed to take the ferry to liberty island with the BigBusTours ticket).

Another tip, buy the tickets for Empire State Building online a few weeks before you start your trip.. The line in front of the ticketcounter was… long (Buy ticket here!)

And go for the “Open Heli Tour” you will never get a better view of the city!!!! (No doors is a little scary but just stunning and an amazing experience!

And thats it… stay tuned for more 🙂

We are GONE.




Finally, we have Christmas holidays.
After being with our families and eat great food we wanted to see something…or just go for a little trip to somewhere. “Accidentally” I saw a pretty good deal for the railway to the Jungfraujoch. Normally it costs around 100 Euro but with our deal, it was “just” 60Euro (each person).

So we booked the trip and 4 days later we were on the road to Jungfraujoch (Booking information here the also are very nice if you call them).
We had to take two Railways. The first one was just a normal Railway up to kleine Scheidegg. Arrived there we toke the famous red Railway up to Jungfraujoch. That red Railway to the top of Jungfraujoch is the highest railway station in Europe and one of the most photographed scenery in Switzerland. We were so excited and I can tell you..already the ride was just amazing. There is one stop in the middle of the mountain. To think..right now you are standing right in the middle of the mountain. That’s crazy!

Here the view from the inside of the mountain through a window out to the Jungfrau glacier.



After taking some pictures at this beautiful glacier-viewpoint we had to go back to the train and after a small ride, we arrived at the top of Jungfraujoch (Top of Europe).

I can definitely recommend Jungfraujoch. It’s expensive, I know but this view! You will never forget this beautiful and breathtaking view… It was stunning.




When you are finally up at the top you can go for different spots. There is an amazing viewpoint at the top of the observatory. You have a 360 view through the Swiss alps. To see the giant Aletsch Glacier, the famous Aiger North wall or just the never ending mountains… If you haven’t had this spot on your bucket list TAKE THE PEN AND NOTE IT DOWN 😉

We hiked for 2 hours through the snow and ice, had amazing lunch and took some quite nice pictures.

If you go to Switzerland, go up there!

So stay tuned for more, we are GONE!


One of our most favorite Mountain in Switzerland is Mount Pilatus in Central Switzerland. The top can be reached by the Pilatus railway, cable car or by walking. If you want to check the Entry-Price or the weahter…here is the link to the official Pilatus Site!
At the second highest floor on the Pilatus, there is an Adventure Park. So it was a MUST to go to the Park. It a rope Park which is divided into difficulty levels. So we started with the easiest level and go up to the most difficult level. It was very funny but also very hard. I really love rope Parks because you can be in nature and can enjoy the view but also you can do something for your fitness. AND you can challenge yourself.
With a partner like Bastian, everything makes fun. He’s my soulmate.

After we have finished the park we decided to go up to the highest level by cable car. On the highest level, you have a fantastic view. You can almost see the whole Switzerland…just joking 😉

Up there is a wonderful Hotel so if you want to stay you can enjoy day and night with this beautiful view. There is also a souvenir shop (of course) and a nice restaurant.

Switzerland has a lot of great and beautiful lakes…
The beautiful Cauma Lake in Flims/Graubünden is one of the most beautiful lakes in Switzerland. The lake is located in a huge Forest and can only be reached by a footpath.  The water of the Lake is clear blue and very clean so you can see the fishes. Do you want to go to this wonderful lake? But you don’t know the entry price or where to park your car? Here is a Link for all those information click here!
In summer the water temperature is between 20 and 24 degrees. Perfect temperature for bathing and because you have pay for the entry there are not too many people 🙂
Also, it’s the perfect place for scuba diving, stand up paddling or just relax and enjoy the water and the sun.
it was a great day and I love to chill there in the summer. But you have to look where you going. Sometimes there are some slippery rocks. I fell on one of those rocks and my thigh has now a scar (on the picture you can see the wound).
But now I have for my lifetime something that reminds me on this perfect day.
I always say, look on the bright side 🙂

I had some plans what I wanted to do in California. One of those was jumping out of a plane!
In my hometown, i was doing skydiving in a wind tunnel but I was never jumping out of a plane (because it’s very expensive in Switzerland). So it was a MUST to do this here!
And Guys I can tell you…it was really really nice 🙂 fear? NO! I was just happy and enjoying the feel-free-moment.

Another plan was learning how to scuba dive and get certified.  It was cool but because of my asthma, i could only breathe badly.
I really hope I can enjoy it some day more than at this time…

Some other plans were to do some weekend trips to LA, Las Vegas, and San Francisco.

Los Angeles – I liked Santa Monica and the beaches. Everything around the walk of fame was to much for me. To many people and too loud. In his way also beautiful but  I’m more the nature-person 😉


After 2 days in LA, we went to Las Vegas…
The journey to Las Vegas was really impressive. We drove right into a storm and the temperature dropped from 42 degrees to 15 degrees in a few minutes. It was spectacular to see a storm in the desert but also a little bit scary. As fast as the storm came he was over.

Now a special tip from me to you…
…on the way to Las Vegas you will see a Diner called Peggy Sue’s 50’s Diner. Stop there! It’s a original roadside Diner built in 1954.
It’s like you had made a time-trip back to the 50’s. And the food and the milkshakes there are so delicious.


I was 2 days in Las Vegas. Not for partying and drinking. Just to see the desert and the Grand Canyon. I never saw something like this before. It was breathtaking!
I’m so happy to saw something like this.

After Las Vegas we flew to San Francisco.
After the high temperatures in Las Vegas it was really cold and windy in San Francisco. Unfortunately we could not go to Alcatraz but SanFran has many other great places you have to see. There are so many lovely coffee-shops and restaurants…and of course the Golden Gate Bridge!
