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.

TRAVEL: exploring Zadar & Nin

It’s been a little quiet around here, because I decided to actually (like really!) take a few days off for our short get-away to Croatia. Most days I didn’t even as much as touch my laptop and it felt amazing. Fueled up with energy and with tons of pictures for you guys, I am back in Vienna today, ready to tell you guys all about our past 5 days. On Thursday, we left Vienna at 1am and headed south towards Zadar. It was Mike’s crazy idea to drive all night in order to be in the sun by breakfast. While I felt like I was in a coma for most of the drive, he got us to the Falkensteiner Resort & Spa Iadera (detailed hotel review will follow) safe and sound by 7am.

TRAVEL: The Ice Cream Market in Berlin

Any event that involves not only one, but multiple ice cream trucks, a huge pool, palm trees, a giant ice cream piñata, cute clothes and lots of sun will make me happy. Which is exactly what the mint&berry Ice Cream Market hosted by the lovely ladies of This Is Jane Wayne & Stil in Berlin did! I was lucky enough to fly to Berlin this past weekend to join the fun and wanted to share some images from Saturdays outdoor activities with you guys. Together with Juliane and Nina (and about 600 other people), I ate my way through tons of yummy ice cream  - my favorite was the special strawberry & mint popsicle that was created by Paletas for mint&berry – and enjoyed some sunshine in Berlin before heading back home to Vienna.
