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…

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…

Antwerp – Beglium

My road trip came to an end at Antwerp. It started with a rainy afternoon but luckily the last few daylight hours cleared the rain away and I started exploring. My hostel the Antwerp Backpackers Hostel was located a little bit further from the center in an area full of immigrants and thus a different…

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,…

Ghent – Belgium

Ghent (Flemish: Gent, French: Gand) was just a small stop on my way from Brussels to Brügge. Since my time was limited and I didn’t book a night, I decided to go for a free walking tour from the Hostel Uppelink. If you’re short in time I absolutely recommend it. I did those kind 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…

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…

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…

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,…

Potsdam – Germany

Potsdam is the next city next to Berlin and is part of the state Brandenburg. It has a really cute old town and is especially famous for the Sanssouci Palace and the park around it. I have passed through a couple of times, visiting friends or going on an event or so, but never really…
