#5 Marseille // France

The morning we reached the last stop of our Mediterranean cruise ride, we were welcomed by the oldest and second largest city of France, and already saw its most magnificent building, Marseille’s most impressive landmark: the Basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde majestically bathing in a golden light at dawn. After our classic French [...]

#4 Barcelona // Spain

The tragic sad motorway bridge collapse in Genoa - which we have only crossed a week ago - makes it quite hard to now share happy vacation pictures. Our next stop was beautiful Barcelona. The fact that we had just been there three years ago for my birthday, took the pressure off of feeling the [...]

#3 Valletta // Mdina // Malta

Just as our Captain had promised, entering the Grand Harbor of Valletta with the sun just rising at 6:09 am is just breathtaking and something you’ll never forget. Unlike most other cruise harbors, the port of Valletta is one of the most spectacular natural deep water harbours in the Mediterranean. We were greeted with a [...]

#2 Sicily // Taormina

Next stop on our Mediaterranen tour was Messina, Sicily. We immediately hopped onto a taxi to get to the beautiful old town Taormina, and the journey was definitely a highlight itself. Luigi, our lovable cab driver, was playing some quirky and uplifting Tarantella songs while driving us along the scenic winding roads up to this [...]

#1 Pompeii and Naples

Our first stop in Italy was Naples. We had the nicest tour guide, Massimo, aka taxi driver who took us first to the largest archeological site of the world, Pompeii, driving along castles, cliffs and Mount Vesuvius. Pompeii did not disappoint and was absolutely spectacular. Ever since I had Latin in school and the most [...]

Our first time on a cruise ship

This summer we tried something new: we hopped on a cruise ship to explore the Mediterranean Sea and all its beauty. One of our family members had wished for this once-in-a-lifetime-experience for her big birthday, and her wish was most certainly our command. ;-) Today I would like to share a few impressions of this [...]

Special Olympics 2018 in Kiel

Here’s a little trip report (in gazillion images) from our wonderful week in Kiel last week, where we proudly attended the national Special Olympics with our 46PLUS Down-Syndrom Stuttgart e. V. athletes team. We were a group of 20 people altogether, and although we all spent our time together from early dawn till midnight every [...]

10 things I loved in Amsterdam

After three long months of Juliana constantly having the flu or some sort of cold and fever, we were all ready for a change of scenery. I actually don’t remember how we came up with Amsterdam, but it’s a beautiful city I have always loved. We took it all easy there, with no special tour [...]

Summer Flowers

I can’t believe it snowed again last night. Aren’t we all ready for spring, warming sunbeams, sitting outside in cafés, and all the beautiful flowers blossoming colorfully. This year I can’t wait to grow my own flowers … thanks to my awesome publisher Neufeld Verlag and the Down-Syndrom InfoCenter who teamed up again for the [...]

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, everyone! I like this time of the year when everything and everywhere it’s kind of „quiet“ and you get a chance to sit down and reflect of what made you happy, what worked and what didn’t last year. Although all the new year-new you thing sounds a bit cliche, there is power [...]
