Saigon Sally, Melbourne

IMG_8414b

Visiting Melbourne for the first time, I was totally flashed by the quality of the food. Almost everything I tried, tasted awesome. Even if it’s really expensive to go out in Australia, if you’re used to European prices, I would strongly recommend you to invest as much money as you can in food and drinks. Choose a cheaper hotel, if you want to save some money. Saigon Sally, a tip of my fancy hotel, really surprised me. It’s located in a small backroad in Prahran and it’s surrounded by small one family houses. You wouldn’t expect such an fancy restaurant in this small street. Weiterlesen

Silvaner Hildegard 2012, Hauck

DSC_0247

Mal wieder eine Empfehlung des Weinhändlers unseres Vertrauens. Auf der Suche nach weniger säurehaltigen Alternativen zu unseren Favoriten Riesling und Sauvigon Blanc sind wir vor einiger Zeit auf diesen Silvaner aus Rheinhessen aufmerksam geworden. Spontan hat er uns richtig gut geschmeckt, bevor unsere Begeisterung mit der Zeit etwas abgeklungen ist und wir uns anderen Weinen zugewendet haben. Umso gespannter waren wir jetzt, gut ein Jahr später, wie uns die verbliebene Flasche dieses Weines schmecken würde. Weiterlesen

IMG_6163

Visiting Das Kranzbach for the first time in 2013 (read more here), we immediately fell in love with this amazing hideaway. Back in our busy everyday lifes, we couldn’t stop dreaming of our weekend trip. Even though it only was a very short trip, it gave us so much positive energy. This is why we decided to start a new tradition and visit Das Kranzbach every year.

Buckingham Place – Royal Treatment at its Best

IMG_8011_Fotor

When you arrive at this wonderful small resort, you can hardly believe that Tangalle in one of the most touristic areas of Sri Lanka. The resort is located at the end of a small road in the middle of nowhere. When the front gate opens, you see an incredibly well maintained garden with palm trees, a swimming pool and several two-floor bungalows. Looking slightly too modern and functional from the outside, the interior of the bungalows is simply stunning.  Weiterlesen

Weisser Burgunder 2009, Hirschhof (German)

2009 Weisser Burgunder, Weingut Hirschhof

Immer wieder passiert es uns, dass wir einen leckeren Wein kaufen, der uns für den Alltag erst zu schade ist und den wir dann nach einer Weile vergessen. So ist es uns auch bei diesem 2009er Weißen Burgunder vom Weingut Hirschhof passiert. Gekauft haben wir den Wein bereits im September 2011 zusammen mit einem exzellenten Riesling während eines Kurztrips nach Worms. Jetzt, gut 3 Jahre später, bin ich beim Aufräumen im Keller zufällig über die letzte Flasche des Weißen Burgunders gestolpert, der uns damals sehr gut geschmeckt hatte. Dieses Wochenende war es dann soweit: Miss Bliss und ich wollten endlich wieder mal zusammen kochen und das orientalische Zitronenhuhn von Ali Güngörmüş erschien uns ein würdiger Mahl als Begleitung des Weißen Burgunders.

Amba Estate – Teatime In Paradise

Amba Estate - Farm House

The beautiful farmhouse

Situated in the highlands of Sri Lanka between Ella and Banderawella, this little guesthouse in Ambadandegama is a true gem and worth the bumpy ride to reach it. It’s not only a guesthouse, but probably also Sri Lanka’s smallest tea estate. Here, quality is what matters most. Weiterlesen

Jungle Beach Resort – A Luxurious Hideaway At The Beach

Jungle Beach Resort, Beach 1

This little resort is close to Trincomalee in the eastern part of Sri Lanka, an area that hasn’t been accessible for foreigners for many years due to the civil war. It was a tip of a former colleague and turned out to be a true hideaway.

The heart of the resort is an open-space building with a well-equipped bar, restaurant and a lovely pool. The rooms are spread to both sides of the main building. Well, rooms is maybe not the right word. Every party has its own bungalow of app. 50 square meters that is almost as big as our old apartment in Munich.

We stayed in a Jungle Bungalow, which is a good compromise between the pretty expensive Beach Bungalow and the Lagoon Bungalow that faces the street. Weiterlesen

Röttgen 2012, Heymann-Löwenstein (German)

Mein Vater schwärmt seit Jahren von den Rieslingen aus dem Hause Heymann-Löwenstein. Für den Alltag sind sie ihm allerdings etwas zu teuer. Was läge also näher, als ihn zum Geburtstag mit einer Kiste mit 3 verschiedenen Rieslingen zu überraschen. Das gute daran, so bin auch ich in den Genuss gekommen, den 2012 Röttgen zu probieren. Dieser Wein hat wahrlich Charakter und eine ungeheure Wucht. Ich bin immer noch geplättet von der ausgeprägten Mineralität, der Frische und den vielfältigen Fruchtnoten von Apfel über Birne bis Quitte. Weiterlesen

Honeymoon Part 2: Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe – A Little Bit Of Gambling

Hyatt Lake Tahoe, Wonderful Lake

Wonderful Lake Tahoe

Directly located at the shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe, this huge resort looks pretty luxurious from the outside. It has a large pool, a lovely private beach, three restaurants and its own casino. As we’re not that much into gambling, we didn’t visit the casino, but the gambling atmosphere kind of had its own charm. The whole interior looks very traditional. For my taste the wood of the furniture was a little bit too dark and the carpets were a little bit too thick 😉 Opening the entrance door, you immediately know that you’re in a hotel chain as it’s convenient, but not very exciting. Nevertheless, our room was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable.

Honeymoon Part I: The ACE Hotel, Palm Springs – A Hipster’s Paradise

Ace Palm Springs, My Wonderful Wife

Back in Munich we had decided that Palm springs would be the first stop of our honeymoon. My wife had researched two hotels: The Le Meridien Parker and the ACE. I immediately fell in love with the Parker because of the sophisticated and slightly crazy movies that show their different types of rooms – have a look at their website. My wife preferred the ACE. In the end, it was a question of budget. The ACE was slightly more affordable and so we decided to book a larger room in the ACE, which had its own private patio including a fire place. Weiterlesen
