I’m so glad I snowboarded all day long when I was in Austria, so I got some good workout to be able to try all their local food without having a bad conscious – it’s indeed either heavenly sweet or heartily heavy. Never have I tried Kaiserschmarren as softly, Apfelstrudel as tasty and dumplings as delicate… Read More Austrian Food – Sweet ‘n’ Heavy
Snowboarding is so much fun – if you know how to do it. The learning phase is literally a pain in the ass… So, I went on a trip to Austria with my fellow co-workers to board the shit out of those foggy hills. Only have I overestimated my boarding skills I gained seven years ago,… Read More Boarding in the Snow – Of Turns and Determination

When I went to university public transportation was included in the fee, so I used them, but we never became friends. Now, here I am on a business trip… Read More Train Rides. Suck!

So,… Read More Yes, Wine and Good Food Do Make You Happy

Grey skies, deep clouds, rain and drizzle is what I get, and the darkness all around me makes me… Read More Missing Sunshine and Outdoor Shenanigans
My final Sri Lankan post is all about summer, sun, sand and cocktails – it’s all about beachtime. I spent four days at Tangalle, one at Mirissa and one at Unawatuna, and of course it has been glorious. Everyday was hot and sunny (well at first, in the late afternoon it mostly rained, but we will ignore that), my skin… Read More Summertime, Drinks and Turtles – Sri Lankan Beachfun
