Saskatoon – Canada

Driving through the prairie is not too exiting, but at the same time not as boring as I got told it would be. I did enjoy the ride and Saskatoon as a cute little city. I think most tourist will just stay there shortly when traveling through Canada. Still I enjoyed my shot stay, especially…

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…

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…

Québec City – Canada

Some people told me that Québec is worth a short visit and I have to agree. Sadly two out of three day’s it was raining and storming so I wasn’t able to see all of what I had planned to. I went out the first day because it didn’t looked like rain would come soon…

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…

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…

Leipzig – Germany

My last blogs presented my view of Magdeburg and Dresden, both cities I commuted to on a regular basis. In March another branch was opened by me, this time in Leipzig. Because of that since December 2018 I started traveling to Leipzig more often. On the one hand to find office space and on the…

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…

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…

Antwerp – Beglium

My road trip came to an end at Antwerp. It started with a rainy afternoon but luckily the last few daylight hours cleared the rain away and I started exploring. My hostel the Antwerp Backpackers Hostel was located a little bit further from the center in an area full of immigrants and thus a different…

Bruges – Belgium

When I told people I‘m going to visit Bruges almost everybody mentioned the movie “In Bruges”. If you haven’t watched it, I saw it afterwards and it was fun to revive the journey. Bruges really is as beautiful as the movie presents it in a weird but funny way. In Flemish it is calles Brugge,…

Ghent – Belgium

Ghent (Flemish: Gent, French: Gand) was just a small stop on my way from Brussels to Brügge. Since my time was limited and I didn’t book a night, I decided to go for a free walking tour from the Hostel Uppelink. If you’re short in time I absolutely recommend it. I did those kind of…
