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…

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…

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…

Florida – USA

Lastly, after exploring New York and also some other parts at the east coast of the USA I ended this gorgeous experience in 2012 with a week in Miami and a short trip to the Key Islands, both traveling solo. Not all went well this trip though. I had a debit card, which I had…

Washington D.C. – USA

Washington D.C. is a city shaped by politics. It is full of monuments for people, wars and places. Full of places where politics were or are made. Still, it is so much smaller than I have expected. I did almost everything walking! My hostel was central as well. Having a tight budget, I took the…

East Coast – USA

In 2012 after being in New York for a week I had a four-week long visit with my family in Vineland, New Jersey and used the time there to do diverse short tips both on my own as well as with my family. These trips went to Philadelphia, Cape May, Atlantic City, Ocean City and…

Wat Rong Khun – Thailand

You want to see the most unusual temple ever, go to see this one. It was an old temple bad in shape and a designer bought it and this is what he made out of it. A temple out of a weird fantasy. Fascination to look at, but not very Buddhist anymore. Lots of tourist…

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…

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…

London – United Kingdom

In June 2017 I explored London for the second time in my life. I do adore this city and that didn’t change almost 15 year later. This city has so much history, architecture, sightseeing spots and many more to offer. The British accent will always be my favorite way of speaking English. That is a…
