About us

Hello dear readers and welcome to our travel blog PlacesofJuma! We are Martina and Jürgen, two travel bloggers from Austria, and – maybe you guessed it! – our biggest passion is traveling.

Constantly on the lookout for new impressions and experiences, there is no travel destination that does not inspire us. Whether it’s local excursions, trips to the north or vacations in the south, we love discovering new places, countries and landscapes. We are happy to share our collected travel information with our readers.  We love adventure travel as well as luxury travel, extraordinary hotels and cool road trips, but sometimes we also love to travel as backpackers.

An overview of our already traveled countries you can find here -> visited Destinations

 

In our travel blog you will find everything about:

 

-> Road trips by car and round trips incl. route suggestions

Whether by car through Morocco, Island Hopping in Thailand or a road trip through the Soca Valley in Slovenia, visiting Tuscany and traveling to Istria – we are always more than happy to share our experiences with you!

 

-> City breaks, the best things to do and insider tips for your next trip

City breaks are just fantastic: get out of the daily grind and make some new experience. But good planning is a must. We provide you with the best tips and information about the city and what are the ultimate best things to do. Our personal top 3 city highlights include Bangkok, Siena and Valencia – but we also love to travel to smaller cities like Dubrovnik and Cesky Krumlov.

 

-> Hotel and accommodation recommendations

In our travel guides we present tips for the best hotels and accommodations. In some we had been personally, others score with excellent ratings.

 

-> Tips for your travel planning

Have a look at our travel planning section. Here you will find all the information you need for successful travel planning, car rental, cheap flights and hotel search.

 

-> The best photo spots & viewpoints for your next trip

When traveling, it is often not easy to find the best photo motifs. We are happy to tell you how to find the best instagrammable places and viewpoints the fastest and easiest way.
