TOKYO IN FEBRUARY

It’s been a whole year since my trip to the land of the rising sun. Where did the time go? So to celebrate my one year anniversary, I am writing a post to share my Japanese moments and buying some sushi later today 🙂 Even the jetlag could not stop me from exploring vibrant Tokyo on my first day there. It is a huge city and there are tons of fun things that you can do, all depends on what you like most. So where do I start? Ginza: The area offers luxury shopping, fine dining, and great bars.

KÖLN

I recenty went on a trip to Cologne (Köln) to recharge and boost my energy level for the coming winter months. Köln is one of Germany’s larger cities, although it is still quite easy to get around. You can explore the city by foot. The most popular attraction is the beautiful cathedral, also a World Heritge site. The old city with its narrow streets along the Rhine River is well worth a visit (there is a Chocolate Museum along the way:)). I stayed in Savoy Hotel, which is very close to the cathedral. I highly recommend it. Gorgeous design and  incredibly comfy rooms – absolutely spotless.  Try the cocktails in the bar, you won’t regret it. In summary: Great weekend destination, delicious food, good beer, and nice restaurants.
