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…

New York – USA

The USA were first solo travel combined with visiting family. Starting in August of 2012, I had a six weeks trip to the USA, my first time overseas and out of Europe. I spend the first week in New York on my own and I loved it. I will post about the rest of the…

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…

Nordrhein-Westfalen – Germany

This week I visited one of my best and at the same time oldest friend in her new hometown Rheinbach in Nordrhein-Westfalen. We know each other since she was born almost 31 years ago. She got married last Thursday and I was honored to join the celebration as her bridesmaid. It was a really cute…

Nikko – Japan

Nikko is a cute little town around an hour by train and then bus from Tokyo. Perfect for a daytrip. I heard of the ton of beautiful temples in this town and the beautiful mountain nature around it. That is what brought me there and Nikko held what it promised. I don’t know why, but…

Nara – Japan

Nara, known as the deer town and sure that is what it is. Lots of deer that are not shy at all and are happy to get a snack from you. But apart from the deer it has beautiful parks and temples. All in walkable distance for a nice daytrip either from Osaka or Kyoto…

Osaka – Japan

As far as what I heard before Osaka mostly loses as not being worthy to spend time at. Most of the people I met just traveled though without having a longer look at it. What a pity. I only had two days there but I did not regret it at all and had a great…

Tokyo – Japan

It was my dream since being a teenager to once in a lifetime travel to Japan, especially Tokyo since I’m in love with big cities. To right away start in Tokyo was wonderful! I spend a few days there before starting my round trip around Japan and it also ended with another few days in…

Bali – Indonesia

Bali, the main center for digital nomads, wanderers, travelers, globetrotter and people from all over the world to calm down and find their inner center. I know, so many people posted about Bali, spend time there and I always thought it lost its myth due to tourism. Yes, you will meet a hell a lot…

Guilin – China

With four friends from exchange we did an extended weekend trip to Guilin. This area is known for its beautifully shaped mountains, the Li Jiang river and the rice fields. Since we went there after the harvest, we skipped the rice fields and got lost in the beautiful nature. We started in Guilin but just…
