DoubleTree by Hilton Turin Lingotto

DoubleTree by Hilton Turin Lingotto

For a weekend together we have chosen the northern Italian city of Turin as our destination. With the DoubleTree by Hilton Turin Lingotto we had also decided quite fast for a hotel. This hotel is only 10 minutes by car from the city center and was perfect for our city trip. We were also interested in the hotel because it was designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano in the former Fiat factory.

SWISS Senator Lounge Zürich Terminal A

SWISS Senator Lounge Zürich Terminal A

The new SWISS Senator Lounge Zurich was opened in Terminal A about a year ago. On the way back from our summer vacation in Dubai, I was finally able to visit the lounge in June 2019. You can find out in our lounge review whether the 18-month construction period was worth it!

SWISS Business Class in the Airbus A330-300 to Zurich

Another summer vacation is over. As we were unable to agree on a destination this year, we let Miles & More award flights be available for us. That's how it became Dubai! For the return flight we chose the Swiss Business Class in the Airbus A330-300. You can find out in the review how our first flight in SWISS's business class was.

King Deluxe Corner Room im Conrad Dubai

Conrad Dubai

We spent our summer vacation 2019 in the United Arab Emirates. For our time in Dubai we chose Conrad Dubai. In the low season we could book this luxury hotel very cheap. You can find out in our hotel review whether the price is also reflected in the quality and the service.

Lobby-Bar „Peacock Alley“ im Waldorf Astoria Ras al Khaimah

Waldorf Astoria Ras al Khaimah

The name, a statement. The brand, pure luxury. The Waldorf Astoria Ras al Khaimah. In June we spent five nights in this five star hotel on the Arabian Gulf. In the summer months, when it is really hot in the United Arab Emirates, the price-performance ratio is simply unbeatable. So why travel to overcrowded and poorly run Mediterranean hotels when I'm treated like a king here for the same price? You can find out whether the luxury is right in our hotel review.

Lufthansa Premium Economy mit Blick in die Economy Class

Lufthansa Premium Economy in the Airbus A330-300 to Dubai

Due to the better availability of Miles & More award flights, we finally chose the United Arab Emirates. You can read in our review how our flight in the Lufthansa Premium Economy in the Airbus A330 to Dubai was.

Roadtrip USA (Midwest): Sleeping Bear Dunes near Traverse City

In the second part of our road trip through the US Midwest, we drove further north to Michigan. Our daily goal was the Sleeping Bear Dunes, which are located near the “Cherry Capital” Traverse City. This place has a special meaning for me. You can find out more about this in our blog post.

Lufthansa Lounge Mailand-Malpensa

The Lufthansa Lounge Milan-Malpensa was extensively renovated some time ago. During a business trip to Milan, I was able to gain an impression of whether the modernized lounge meets the expectations of the Italian fashion capital.

In addition to the airline lounges, such as B. the Lufthansa Senator Lounge, there are also contract or special lounges at some airports. One of these special features is the American Express Centurion Lounge San Francisco. How we got access to “The Centurion Lounge” and how our stay was, you can find out in the Lounge Review.

Blick auf das Vorfeld

Lufthansa Panorama Lounge Frankfurt

For my flight to Krakow, I had to go to departure gate A40 at the end of Terminal 1. Since I only had 35 minutes to change trains after my arrival from Leipzig and a detour to the Lufthansa Senator Lounge was not worthwhile, I tried the new Lufthansa Panorama Lounge Frankfurt.

Hilton Budapest City

Hilton Budapest City

The Hilton Budapest City is one of two Hilton hotels in the capital of Hungary. For our weekend trip to Budapest we chose this Hilton on the Pest side of the Danube, among other things because of the good connection to the airport. You can find out whether this was a good decision in our hotel review.
