Tofino and Ucluelet – Canada

Tofino is supposed to be the best spot on the west coast for beaches and from what I have seen so far, I couldn’t agree more. It was stunning to experience this beautiful and stormy sea! Especially in winter it is the spot for storm watching and I totally get why. It wasn’t even high…

Nanaimo – Canada

Nanaimo was on the way from Victoria to Tofino and we decided to stay two nights as we got there late night and wanted to leave early after the second. So, we only spend one full day in Nanaimo and unfortunately it was a rainy one. It was during the week so the city was…

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…

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…

Jasper National Park – Canada

Before this journey, by that I don’t mean to the Jasper National Park only, I can’t even remember when I lastly saw a waterfall or visited a lake because of its beauty. Sure, I went hiking to explore nature, but seeing the Rocky Mountains the ones in the Saxony Swiss for example feel so small….

Manitoulin Island – Canada

From the Niagara Falls I drove up with my friend to firstly have a stopover in Owen Sound. We would have needed to start really early to catch the last ferry and this way we had an afternoon at the Georgian Bay. Next morning, we drove up to Tobermory to catch the ferry and with…

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…

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…

Stockholm – Sweden

End of September till beginning of October 2018 I went to have a five-day trip to Stockholm. I was lucky that the autumn weather was soft on my and except for a few cloudy days it wasn’t raining much and not too cold outside. Going off season again leads so less crowds and cheaper prices,…

Koh Rong Samloem – Cambodia

On the evening of the third day I took the night bus to Sihanoukville. It was a long journey, again being in a bed, this time with a Russian girl, but I actually managed to sleep a bit this time and we arrived for sunset. I took a motorcycle ride to the harbor where I…

4000 Islands – Laos

The 4000 islands are more my taste of a great time than Vang Vieng. Still, the journey to get there was trouble and really long. 20 hours in the bus with tiny beds which you had to share with a stranger. In my case a local lady who was gladly really slim, since I’m not……

North Luzon – Philippines

As mentioned before the typhoon made us head for the north instead of the beautiful beaches that the Philippines are known for. That converted our journey in a hiking adventure instead of a beach and diving vacation. First, we head north by bus to Baguio, spend a short night and went shopping for some groceries…
