Everyone has heard about Frankfurt/Main. This city attracts plenty of tourists at least because it has one of the largest airports in Europe. But only few of them visit its surroundings. Just leave the banking metropolis and in a region of up to 20 kilometres north of it, you can discover other smaller, but nevertheless interesting towns. In Königstein, Kronberg, Bad Homburg and Oberursel, located in the mountain range Taunus, some of the wealthiest residents of the state Hessen and even of the whole country are gathered. Bankers and other businessmen work in Frankfurt and live in the countryside.
From Munich we are going straight to Austria. Our next stop is Salzburg, the birth town of Mozart. We walk through the narrow streets, when suddenly we see a crowd gathering around the yellow facade of a house. This is the place, where the famous composer was born. We “fight” with the other tourists for a space to take a picture. Salzburg’s atmosphere is amazing and captivating. While exploring the city our attention is drawn to numerous pubs and restaurants tempting guests with traditional dishes. We stop and test jause – delicious cold meat and cheese served on wooden board. This of course has to go together with a pint of cold Austrian beer.
What do you associate with Munich? Probably with the famous Oktoberfest. Interestingly enough this event is held at the end of September rather than in October, as the name would suggest. Another Oktoberfest is coming soon. That is why I would like to warn you, so that you might have better memories than me.
After a few months break I “reactivated” my travel blog and I should give my readers some up date. After returning from our trip around the world 2012-2014 we settled down in central Germany and slowly come back to reality (looking for a new job, flat etc.) Our “big trip” is already done but it doesn’t mean that we won’t travel any more. Travelling is like a drug and we definitely are addicted. We use weekends and days off to get somewhere else. In the meantime we have already done many walks in my home town Głuchołazy and it’s surrounding in Czech Republic, we have done some short trips to visit friends in Krakow and Warsaw, Berlin, Frankfurt, Geesthacht, Heilbronn and Göttingen. You do not need to go to the other end of the world to see something interesting and experience something special. It is enough to visit your neighborhood city or put on comfortable shoes and hike in the forest near your home. In the next posts I will describe my different tours. Feel free to join my travel blog!

I fell in love especially with the Far East. Through my memories written down in my book Asia in my eyes I would like to bring you closer to the foreign countries I have visited and their cultures. During my stay in Asia I spent most of the time in Hanoi. I studied there and lived together with a Vietnamese family. For these reasons I am particularly close to the capital city of Vietnam.
