Italy photo diary 2019

Italy photo diary 2019

Whenever I travel, I always feel inspired to collect pictures and summarize the beautiful moments of the trip.

9th of October

After our wedding (I will still make a post about it), we wanted to have a little honeymoon getaway and decided to drive to Italy. To explore the 5 villages ( Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore). It took us over 9 hours to arrive in La Spezia. Our Airbnb crib was very clean and much beautiful than expected. On the first evening, we didn’t see much of the city and went to a Pizzeria which was recommended by our Airbnb host -thank you again, Margarita! We ordered Pizza and it was so yummy!!

10th of October

We stayed in La Spezia and explored the city. We walked a loooot but the weather was beautiful! After that, we headed off to Porto Venere where we had the most beautiful view and sunset ever. Then the evening was completed with a delicious Ligurian dinner.

11th of October

Jan and I drove by car to Monterosso and had a relaxed beach day. Monterosso is the first of the 5 villages that we visited.

12th of October

The first time on a boat. We explored the two of the (5) Cinque Terre villages. Our first stop was at Manarola and the last at Riomaggiore. In the cities, we walked a lot, spent much time on the beach, drank coffee and had lunch. Finally, our evening was completed with a visit to the infamous  Nessun Dorma where we had a large food platter and an amazing view.

13th of October

After yesterday’s exhausting day, we had a chilled beach day at Baia Blu. Baia Blu is normally a private beach but only a few people were there and we enjoyed the quietness and the beauty of the sea.

14th of October

We finally got to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

15th of October

It was a rainy and grey day but we decided to see the last villages by train and bus. Our first stop was at Corniglia, a little village that has tiny alleys. Also, we drank good wine because Corniglia is known for its vineyards. It is the only village that didn’t have a beach.

Finally, we visited Vernazza and ate ice cream and had delicious dinner there.

16th of October

Sadly… it’s time to say goodbye, but first a quick stop in Como. The weather was beautiful and I could still wear a summer dress. We didn’t stay long and just had lunch there.

About Jey Signature

Feeling stuck..

Feeling stuck..

Whenever you feel stuck, especially mentally. I think it’s time to travel and explore new places. You don’t have to visit a foreign country to escape from everyday life. You can literally drive by car to the nearest city that you have/haven’t been to. I am very sure you would see its beauty! Also, in every city, you can explore the nature, the exotic plants. In addition, different cafés, good restaurants, and places to just hang out. Don’t forget that every place you plan to visit always has its own personality and attitude. 

We didn’t drive far away and visited a few locations in Germany that are not so far away from Frankfurt. I hope you enjoy the pictures of our little trips.

About Jey ViennaAbout Jey and JanThis Vienna travel guide will show you the hotel we stayed, the historical buildings we saw and the good food that we ate, I hope you’ll enjoy it and get inspired.

Some of you have seen my Vienna pics on my Instagram. Me and my better half drove for several hours by car to explore and visit friends in beautiful Vienna.

By the way, Jan has been there twice because some of his friends live in Vienna, and this was my first time.

Our stay

Ruby-Marie Hotel ZimmerWe arrived in the evening and checked in the Ruby Marie Hotel to stay for 3 full days. Luckily they upgraded us to a bigger room. Our room was very clean and beautiful. Also, there was a big open shower that was attached directly to the bed. The only thing that separated it was the glass wall. Furthermore, the hotel has a cozy relaxing and breakfast lounge.

Most of the time we stayed in the heart of the city and spent quite some time in the shopping malls.

Vienna Travel GuideVienna Travel GuideThe next day was quite rainy and we explored a bit of Vienna and what caught my eyes immediately were the beautiful buildings and historical ones. I felt almost like all the buildings were so beautiful. And, if you didn’t know by now, I am a sucker for those vintage architectures.

We visited the Palmenhaus Garden briefly. Then the infamous Maria-Theresienplatz with the twin castles. The castles face each other, in the middle you can find a beautiful garden.

St. Stephen's Cathedral

On the shopping street ( Maria-Hilferstr.) you can find every fashion store that your heart desires. You will also find St. Stephen’s Cathedral, which resembles the Milan Cathedral due to its aesthetics.

Hofburg Wien

Finally, my favorite place to rest, read a book or just to live in the moment and enjoy the weather,  is definitely the Hofburg Vienna, which offers an incredible garden and castle.

Next time we want to visit the opera and museums.

Now onto my most favorite topic – food

Restaurant Wiener
Beetroot risotto topped with goat cheese at Wiener restaurant.
Le Bol Vienna
‘Monsieur Seguin’ Salad

The Wiener was the first place that we visited. The food is über good if you want to eat a typical Vienna dish. My menu included: a soup, beetroot risotto finished off with a delicious hot chocolate brownie which is a must-try! On top of that the service was excellent, very much recommended!

Le Bol, is a little French cafe in the inner corner of Vienna. There are a few tables and one big table in the middle of the Café. We love to go to Le Bol because we can grab a good coffee and eat the ‘Monsieur Seguin’ the most delicious salad with the yummiest goat cheese ever.

The Naschmarkt in Vienna is known for its huge selection of spices, meat, and fish. The market kinda reminds me of a bigger version of our Kleinmarkthalle that is located in Frankfurt.

See you in the next post!

Travel Guide – Bol, Island Brac

Travel Guide – Bol, Island Brac

This post is my personal travel guide for the beautiful island Bol. In addition I wanted to share some pics of our last stay in Croatia. 🙂

Our crip

Our view

We stayed 6 nights at our wonderful airbnb apartment from Adria Tours which you can find here. That apartment offered a very beautiful view. The mentioned apartment was 10 min away from the catamaran pier. When we arrived the Adria Tours Team picked us up at the port and drove us to our apartment.


Port of Split Croatia
Port of Split, Croatia

We flew by plan and landed at the airport of Split. From there we had to take a bus to the Port of Split. At the port we took a catamaran that brought you twice a day to the island Brac, Bol. Due to our early flight back home on the last day, we took the catamaran at 6:24 which is very early for me.


We visited two beaches. Once, we were at the Kotlina Beach. By the way, you can read the post here. Most of the time we stayed at the stony beach bay next to the famous beach Zlatni rat.

For your information: Zlatni Rat is really famous for its interesting shape. 5 years ago we were there. But this time we didn’t visit it because we preferred the little beach bay much more.


Pizzeria Topolino Bol Brac
Gigantic pizza at Topolino

Bol offers many spots for food and drinks. The most famous restaurants are: Pumparela and Topolino, both give you a beautiful view of the Bol pier. Also, where you can eat for bigger portion and for much less money is at Konoba Mendula. Their salad bar and service are awesome. The only downside is that the place is more hidden and is not at the port like the other restaurants. Furthermore there are many cafes where you can simply sit and catch a coffee with a beautiful view of the turquoise water 😉

Lastly before I forget – Croatia belongs to the EU you can pay in many places with euro instead of Kunas. But to be honest, I wouldn’t recommend changing due to high currency change fees.
