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…

Yoho National Park – Canada

I have to admit, before visiting the Jasper National Park I wasn’t even aware that apart from the Banff National Park there are more National Parks in the Canadian Rockies and was surprised when I saw the sign of the Yoho National Park. Actually, there is another one, the Kootenay National Park north from Jasper,…

Banff National Park – Canada

Driving down the Icefields Parkway from Jasper National Park to Banff National Park I had a bless on the ride. It in fact took me that long, that after reaching Lake Louise it was almost dark and snowing anyway. Yes, snowing, at the End of September (Yes, that means I’m late with this blog for…

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….

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…

Niagara Falls – Canada

The Niagara Falls do actually consist of two falls, the American Falls as well as the Horseshoe Falls, the bigger one of the two. You can access them from the USA, but the view from the Canadian side is way better, because you see them from the front. I knew that this is going to…

Algonquin Provincial Park – Canada

As I mentioned before I was burned out and even though traveling is fun it is exhausting as well and adds on the stress level that currently is still raised high for me. My first plan was to travel to Nova Scotia and let myself take a short break there but it was really expensive…

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…

Saxon Switzerland – Germany

The so-called area Saxon Switzerland is known for its beautiful nature perfect for hiking and trekking trips. Since living in Dresden for a year and commuting to it for another year I had the shot to visit diverse spots in this are a couple of times. It was the visit of my mom in October…

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…

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…
