Seattle – USA

Seattle was my, or our, first trip outside of Canada this year. We went the last weekend of February 2020 and now I know that this was the best timing ever considering that not too long after that Corona evolved into a Pandemic. The borders to the USA were closed and travel was not recommended…

Niagara Falls – Canada

The Niagara Falls do actually consist of two falls, the American Falls as well as the Horseshoe Falls, the bigger one of the two. You can access them from the USA, but the view from the Canadian side is way better, because you see them from the front. I knew that this is going to…

Algonquin Provincial Park – Canada

As I mentioned before I was burned out and even though traveling is fun it is exhausting as well and adds on the stress level that currently is still raised high for me. My first plan was to travel to Nova Scotia and let myself take a short break there but it was really expensive…

Iceland

Visiting Iceland was a dream of mine for many years but I always thought it is to expensive. I’m not a fan of organized bus tours and therefore I hoped for someone to join me to share cost for rooms and transportation. Since one of the cheapest options for me to fly to the east…

How to prepare for a longer time abroad

Why I decided to leave The feeling that it was time for a change was present in my mind for a very long time. I just wasn’t brave enough. Brave… I never got told to be brave as often as I’m being told right now and in the last couple of months since I decided…

New York II – USA

It was not my fist visit to New York. The fist time I was able to visit this beautiful city was back in 2012. I already posted about it. New York, oh what this city does to me. It was my first oversea and my first single trip. It was great to come back and…

Chicago – USA

I went to visit the USA for a second time almost a year ago. It was a three weeks’ vacation mostly solo travel but also some days with friends and family. Since a friend of mine studied near Chicago I choose to not only spend the time in New York, my next Saturday blog is…

Florida – USA

Lastly, after exploring New York and also some other parts at the east coast of the USA I ended this gorgeous experience in 2012 with a week in Miami and a short trip to the Key Islands, both traveling solo. Not all went well this trip though. I had a debit card, which I had…

Washington D.C. – USA

Washington D.C. is a city shaped by politics. It is full of monuments for people, wars and places. Full of places where politics were or are made. Still, it is so much smaller than I have expected. I did almost everything walking! My hostel was central as well. Having a tight budget, I took the…

East Coast – USA

In 2012 after being in New York for a week I had a four-week long visit with my family in Vineland, New Jersey and used the time there to do diverse short tips both on my own as well as with my family. These trips went to Philadelphia, Cape May, Atlantic City, Ocean City and…

New York – USA

The USA were first solo travel combined with visiting family. Starting in August of 2012, I had a six weeks trip to the USA, my first time overseas and out of Europe. I spend the first week in New York on my own and I loved it. I will post about the rest of the…
