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…

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…

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…

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…

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,…

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…

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,…

Mandalay – Myanmar

Boat ride from Bagan to Mandalay I decided to do a day cruise from Bagan to Mandalay. A bit of luxury is nice sometimes and it wasn’t that expensive. The Irrawaddy River took us north to Mandalay. It was beautiful and relaxing. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were included and we also were able drinks on…

Berlin my hometown – Germany

My hometown… I was born in West Berlin in 1987 in Rudow, a part of Neukölln. After coming back from Spain, we moved to Charlottenburg, then I moved to Reinickendorf, Tempelhof, Prenzlauer Berg, Steglitz and now I’m back in Prenzlauer Berg. As you see I have spent time living in multiple part of the city…

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…

Hong Kong

On the 11th of August 2016 a very important journey started for me. I was on the way to an exchange semester in Shenzhen, China due to my master’s degree. Since Shenzhen borders with Hong Kong a few of the exchange students decided to spent a couple of days in Hong Kong before the semester…
