Whistler and Squamish – Canada

We went to Whistler, passing by through Squamish as a girl’s trip. It was a very spontaneous action as I saw the post of a girl in a Facebook group stating they still have a spot in a car if someone wants to join for the weekend and this is what I did. Knew none…

North Vancouver – Canada

My first home in Vancouver was found in North Vancouver through AirBnb. It is part of the Vancouver Metro Area, but still a different city to Vancouver itself. The cities are just separated by the Vancouver Harbor and you can get to Vancouver either by ferry or two bridges. I really adore the nature in…

Yoho National Park – Canada

I have to admit, before visiting the Jasper National Park I wasn’t even aware that apart from the Banff National Park there are more National Parks in the Canadian Rockies and was surprised when I saw the sign of the Yoho National Park. Actually, there is another one, the Kootenay National Park north from Jasper,…

Calgary – Canada

Visiting Banff National Park I decided to to da short day trip to Calgary. The city has nice architecture and art installations, but I didn’t stay long enough to really explore much of it, so just did the main tourist spots. Might come back one day. So here are my impressions: Peace Bridge Prince’s Island…

Edmonton – Canada

I think I somehow choose the wrong time to visit Edmonton. But it can’t be all exciting while traveling. A few places I wanted to go to where closed because it was off season and they used the time for renovations. But that gave me some free time for unwanted shopping… Somehow the washing machine…

Winnipeg – Canada

The way from Thunder Bay to Winnipeg was actually nicer than I had expected since everyone told me that after Thunder Bay it is getting boring. But up until one or two hours before reaching Winnipeg it was still lots of trees and lakes by the road and I enjoyed the ride. The area I…

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…

Ottawa – Canada

The capital of Canada and as I learned it got chosen strategically because it didn’t border with the USA and also marks the line between the English and French speaking part. I started in the French speaking part because I knew I would work there without speaking French and thus wanted to travel from east…

Montreal – Canada

Montréal or as it seems the citizens of Québec call it “Moreal” was my first stop in Canada. I landed on the 10th of August late at night and was surprised how fast the immigration process worked. Just needed to show my passport, the permit and my finances. Then I got a document and was…

Magdeburg – Germany

Magdeburg was one of the cities I commuted to for almost two years weekly starting for only three months in 2015 and fulltime in October 2017 after my master studies. It was my duty as a team lead to visit each branch at least once a week. Dresden also was one of them. Sometimes I…

Saxon Switzerland – Germany

The so-called area Saxon Switzerland is known for its beautiful nature perfect for hiking and trekking trips. Since living in Dresden for a year and commuting to it for another year I had the shot to visit diverse spots in this are a couple of times. It was the visit of my mom in October…

Dresden – Germany

This week I officially started to say my goodbyes one branch at a time. The first goodbye was this Tuesday in Dresden. I think that the night from Monday to Thursday was the first night where I realized that I did actually quit my job to travel and start over at the other side of…
