If you want to know about me personally, please go to about me, but if you want to know what you’ll find in this blog you’re in the right place! I’ll keep it simple – this is what I write about:
Where I’ve been
Places I’m visiting right now, have visited recently, or sometimes places I visited a long time ago but remain strong in the memory. It might be a town, a region, or even just a particular spot that merits a visit itself
What makes somewhere special
I’ll write about these places from a personal point of view – I write about how a place feels, what I experience there, and also what I think makes it special
I often write about cycling, since this is how I get to experience many new places at home or abroad. You won’t find technical information about cycling, but what I see from the saddle will definitely be here
I won’t always do this, but if I think it’s useful, I might write about where I ate or had a good ice-cream! Sometimes the magic of travel is in finding your own places, so there’s not too much emphasis on this
Tips from a local
Some places I know extremely well since I visit regularly or have lived there. This being the case, you’ll find a mine of information on Southern Germany, Southern England and also the beautiful island of Cyprus
And Finally…..why “A Nice Life”?
This is actually a little word-play. I love good ice-cream, and especially if I’m out cycling in the summer an ice-cream stop is almost mandatory. In German ice-cream is “Eis”, and my original idea was to combine English and German to form “an eis life”. Common sense prevailed but the spirit remained, hence we have An Ice Life!
