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…

The German Baltic Sea – A family weekend

As I already mentioned, I’m not only saying my good byes to my coworkers and employees but also and more importantly to friends and family. This is why I used the chance to spend an entire weekend with my mother and my grandparents at the German Baltic Sea. We stayed in Kühlungsborn but also visited…

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…

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,…

Brussels – Belgium

Visiting Brussels was the longest stop on my road trip through the Benelux states. In French it is called Bruxelles, in Dutch Brussel and in German Brüssel. This multicultural background of Belgium is fascinating to me. This city has French as the main language but most of the citizens speak Dutch and English as well….

Leuven – Belgium

Leuven is a super cute city near Brussels and I visited it for half a day on the way from Maastricht to Brussels. In French it is called Leuven and in Dutch Löwen, which means lions. I started in the surroundings and then made my way into the city. I had some bad luck with…

Maastricht – Netherlands

As part of my Benelux roadtrip I took a short drive from Liège to Maastricht in the Netherlands. That’s a pro of traveling in Europe, everything is so close! I’m a fan of the Netherlands anyway. The people are super kind, I love the language and each city has such a relaxing vibe that it…

Liège – Beglium

Liege, a city with many names in diverse languages: In French it is Liège, locally it is called Lîdje, in Dutch it’s Luik and for people out of Luxembourg it`s Léck, we Germans call it Lüttich. It was the recommendation of a friend from exchange. At first when I drove into from Luxembourg the city…

Luxembourg

For the Easter vacation I choose to make a road trip taking advantage of my company car. First, I vent to visit one of my best friends in Frankfurt who just recently got her first baby boy and spent two days with her and her husband. I updated my Frankfurt blog with a few pictures…

Fehmarn – Germany

Since I already did the business trip up north to Kiel I decided to stay north and looked for an affordable stay. I picked the island Fehmarn to stay for the weekend because I haven’t been on it before, found a room with kitchen and shared bathroom and it is not that far apart from…
