Alicioustravels: NEW SERIES Travel Essentials

I have been used to going on holidays from a very young age. As soon as I considered myself old enough, I started travelling on my own. Most of my friends will consider me “well-travelled” while I will look at a map and see all those places I have never been to – and many more that I would love to see again.

Alicioustravels: Portugal unplanned

On Saturday Mr A and I set off on our long-awaited holiday in Portugal and for the first time ever we didn’t really have a plan.

We had flights booked as well as accommodation for our first few nights in Lisbon and also a rental car. We knew that we would want to walk along a beach and visit the faro at Cabo de Sao Vincente – but that was pretty much it! Continue reading Alicioustravels: Portugal unplanned

Alicioustravels: An Ode to Achensee

As you will have seen on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, we had a pretty awesome week: gorgeous mountain weather with blue skies and little wind, barely any other tourists and a lovely apartment – all in a prime locations for people who love the outdoors.

Our getaway to Achensee last week was so perfect in every way that we were not only reluctant to leave, we actually added another day and only arrived back in Vienna yesterday. I guess that says it all. Continue reading Alicioustravels: An Ode to Achensee

Alicioustravels: My favourite impressions of South America

My favourite impressions of South America are as diverse as the continent itself. They are primarily nature-based (no big surprise here) not because I didn’t visit any cities but because I simply did not like the cities – at least not nearly as much as I enjoyed being outdoors in the deserts of Uyuní and Atacama, discovering hidden (well, “hidden”) waterfalls in Iguazú or getting up, close and personal with the magnificent Moai on Easter Island.
