HOTEL REVIEW: Hotel Indigo Alexanderplatz

I am not sure what your plans for the weekend are, but I am headed home to spend a few days with my family. Summer is in full force and I can’t wait for BBQs with family & friends, a dip in the lake and to catch up on my favorite magazines. Just in time for a little get-away, I still have a hotel review to share with you. For Berlin Fashion Week, last week, I spent 4 nights in the German city. Every time I visit Berlin, I catch myself falling for the city more and more – mostly for their amazing restaurant and food options. Berlin is huge and there are so many corners yet to be discovered, but for now, I have found Mitte to be my favorite area – which is also where the Hotel Indigo Alexanderplatz is located.

It is not always easy finding a good hotel in a foreign city, especially during fashion week. Prices are higher than usual and all of the good places are fully booked. We got lucky and ended up at a hotel with fair prices, a stylish interior and a location that is hard to beat.

TRAVEL: my take on fashion week

You guys probably won’t believe me when I say that I only attended one single show (Lena Hoschek – sooo good!) for Berlin Fashion Week. Personally, I don’t like the hype around all the shows. Sure, there were a few that I would have loved to see, but will miss due to my flight back home tonight, but generally speaking, I am not the biggest fan of the shows. That being said, I absolutely love seeing everyone here in Berlin. I feel like I’ve been running into people at every corner and it is so fun to catch up with all the lovely ladies from Germany. My personal highlight was the kick-off cocktail by Rewardstyle on Monday, where I got to hang out with my favorite girls, enjoy an amazing view over Berlin and have some even more amazing drinks. Call me crazy, but those kinds of events are what make fashion week worth while to me.

HOTEL REVIEW: Falkensteiner Resort & Spa Iadera

To finish of my travel diary from Croatia, I wanted to share a detailed hotel review of our stay at the beautiful Falkensteiner Resort & Spa Iadera with you guys. Personally, I really love all of the Falkensteiner hotels that I’ve been to so far (Velden, Schladming & Stegersbach), so it was no surprise that we instantly felt very at home in Zadar as well. We had a spacious junior suite with an incredible ocean view and breakfast was also included. The resort is located about 5.5 hrs by car from Vienna and only a few kilometers away from the Croatian town of Zadar.

TRAVEL: Otok Murter, island love!

I left my heart on an island. Murter island to be exact. When planing our trip to Croatia, I had no idea exactly how many incredible islands lie just off the coast. In clear view from Zadar, there was Kornati National Park, made up of 140 islands. After a bit of research, I noticed that one island, not too far from our hotel (about 80km), was accessible by car through a bridge in tiny village called Tisno. Once we made it to Otok Murter, it was love at first sight. The scenery reminded me of a Croatian version of the Amalfi Coast. Beautiful, colorful little houses nestled along the coast, split up into 3 villages: Jezera, Betina and Murter. Crystal clear water, sail boats docked in the prettiest coves and one of the most stunning sunsets made our time there truly special.
