New York City. There is barely any other city in the world so much has been said, written or sung about. Everyone you’ll meet will have their own stories about this city – whether they are actually their own or someone else’s does not matter.

While you are reading this, Mum and I are on our way across the Atlantic, if we haven’t already touched down at NYC’s JFK airport.
It’s the first holiday with Mum – except for that oh-so-relaxing spa weekend at Die Wasnerin last spring – since 2005 and we’ve both really looked forward to spending a whole 10 days together. Continue reading Alicioustravels: Off to New York
When I was five years old we moved from an apartment in a town of 50,000 to a house with garden to a village of a few hundred. It’s the place where my maternal grandfather was born, called Wald which – aptly – translates to “forest”. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Picking wild blackberries

My dear readers,
I wish you and your families a merry Christmas and happy holidays! I hope you get to spend the next couple of days with those you love, eating plenty of home-cooked food around beautifully decorated Christmas trees and generally enjoying yourselves.
May the spirit of Christmas fill your heart and house.
Oh, the lights. Each year I’m once more excited when the first Christmas lights are put up on Vienna’s shopping streets. Then the markets come up and I’m again mesmerised. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Christmas lights
