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…

Victoria – Canada

Just got to Vancouver, the goal of my road trip from east to west through Canada, but felt as if it’s not time to “settle” yet. I wanted to explore the Vancouver Islands before to see if I rather live there than in this big city Vancouver is. Luckily in my hostel in Vancouver downtown…

Kelowna – Canada

Got to Kelowna late at night but luckily had two more days to explore! Kelowna got recommended to me by a coworker from Germany, he visited it over a decade ago, maybe even two, can’t remember, but since he knew I was going to travel through Canada he told me about this city a couple…

Toronto – Canada

First, I wasn’t a fan of this huge city. To crowded, dirty, chaotic and I think the contrast to the Algonquin Provincial Park enhanced that feeling even more. But after exploring the waterfront and Toronto at night I started to really like and enjoy this city. I wouldn’t want to live here as I left…

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…

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…

Kiel – Germany

Again, I had a business trip up north in Germany, this time to our branch in Kiel. I was happy to meet some coworkers from my time in Hamburg after almost four years. I really missed the sound of the seagulls and the fresh wind and even though it is not Hamburg itself surely, I…

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…

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…

Hamburg – Germany

Since ages I have a deep connection to Hamburg. First of all my Oncle and Aunt lived there for some years and I visited them a few times. I always liked the flair of the city. At the beginning of 2014 I was commuting to Hamburg weekly for almos a year. I’m still thinking about…

Cologne – Germany

As mentioned in the last post I went to visit a close friend of mine in the area of Nordrhein-Westfalen. Since I already was nearby, I took the time to visit Cologne or Köln in German, one of the bigger cities in this area. I only had three hours before my friend was back from…
