City ​​trips

City breaks are one of my favorite types of travel. On the one hand because there are so many beautiful cities and on the other hand because you can experience so much in a short time. In the past few years, we have particularly taken extended weekend trips to cities in Germany – in Bavaria or Baden-Württemberg alone there are so many cute cities that are really worth investing 2-3 days in: For example these Festival city of Bayreuth. Even if you look a bit beyond the borders of Germany, there are great opportunities for a short or longer city trip: The Austrian capital Vienna did it to me too. Or of course the City of love: Paris is always worth a trip.

Window to Paris: From the Grands Boulevards to the Eiffel Tower

One of my favorite childhood movies is the Russian film Window to Paris. The film is about several protagonists who find out that they can get straight to Paris through a window in a St. Petersburg apartment by simply climbing through it. How much I wished for a window like that back then. So this time it was clear for me to find my own window on Paris. And I can tell you one thing: I found what I was looking for. Even three times.
