Australia’s East Coast: Our Tips for Brisbane

A domestic flight from Perth to Brisbane takes 4.5 hours. This shows once again how huge Australia is. For us it was definitely the right decision not to drive the whole way by car, but to fly to the east coast.

Brisbane is located in Queensland and is 2 hours ahead of Perth (currently 9 hours ahead of Germany). We stayed there once again in an Airbnb apartment – and in the hilly Red Hill district (approx. 20 minutes and 30 AUS dollars with an Uber from the airport).

Travel Tip: The Financial District | New York

The Financial District was one of the places I kept coming back to during my time in New York. The combination of tall office buildings, the great view in Battery Park and of course the shopping possibilities fascinated me already in 2014 during my first visit – and that's exactly why it's urgently time for a post of my own!

On my first visit to New York, our hotel was located directly in the Financial District – and maybe that's the reason why I like this area so much. But even when I lived in Brooklyn and worked in Midtown, I was often drawn here after work or on weekends. Not only to Battery Park, where I could enjoy the view of the Statue of Liberty – a sight that always made me realize how lucky I am to live in New York. But also for shopping, eating or just walking through the streets.

Spinach risotto with goat cheese by Jamie Oliver

A delicious risotto is one of the best comfort foods for me. Not everyone likes the sloppy and creamy texture, but those who do will love this recipe. Promise.

I like to prepare risotto in different ways. Quite classic, with butter and a good portion of fresh grated parmesan, with fresh mushrooms, or as in this version an Italian spinach risotto with goat cheese. This is Italy on your plate!

Best time to visit Savannah, Georgia, all year round

Savannah is a unique tourist destination. Summertime draws crowds because of school breaks: It also sees high room rates and almost unbearable heat and humidity, which can make it uncomfortable for visitors moving from one attraction to the next. The winter months of January and February are low season – at this time you will see a drop in temperatures and a drop in room rates. Fall from mid-September to mid-November is a good time to visit Savannah, when it's not crowded and room rates are reasonable. But the best time to visit Savannah is spring from March to June – this time of year is similar to fall, but with the added attraction of blooming flowers. Photo: Melpomene / Fotolia
