Coral Gables And Sawgrass Mills Mall

One of the musts in Miami is the shopping mall, Sawgrass Mills Mall. I was so excited to go there, but to be honest, 5 hours was just not enough! I couldn't even visit all the stores and as the mall was gigantic, huge!!! I did a lot of shopping and was proud of what I found! This time I spent more time in the area of Coral Gables, which I prefered compared with the more popular South Beach.

Miami Baby!

Mission complete! My master thesis was written, now I needed a holiday...sun, beach and sea! My friend Uli and I decided to fly to Miami for 5 days. It was a really unorganised vacation, but that made it more exciting because we didn't have a clue what we wanted to do whilst we were there. Two friends of Uli had been already there so we spent most of the time with them. One of the most beautiful and quite areas we visited was Key Biscayne. The beach, sea and all the nature was wonderful and it was so hot that we got sun burn.

Üetliberg And Rapperswil

The next day I met a friend and we went to a very high point near Zurich, the Üetliberg, which is a popular attraction on sunny days. We were lucky because it was sunny although it was really windy. After having had a very nice lunch on the mountain, we looked over the whole of Switzerland and continued to Rapperswil where we got one of the most delicious self-made ice-creams.

Red Carpet At St. Gallen

I spent one night in St Gallen to see a friend whilst I was on my way towards Zurich. St Gallen is a small city. I liked the red carpet designed by Carlos Martinez in collaboration with Pipilotti Rist which was spread out between the buildings. The city has an outside living room which invites the public to sit and enjoy their time outside.
