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…

North Vancouver – Canada

My first home in Vancouver was found in North Vancouver through AirBnb. It is part of the Vancouver Metro Area, but still a different city to Vancouver itself. The cities are just separated by the Vancouver Harbor and you can get to Vancouver either by ferry or two bridges. I really adore the nature in…

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…

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…

Toronto – Canada

First, I wasn’t a fan of this huge city. To crowded, dirty, chaotic and I think the contrast to the Algonquin Provincial Park enhanced that feeling even more. But after exploring the waterfront and Toronto at night I started to really like and enjoy this city. I wouldn’t want to live here as I left…

Montreal – Canada

Montréal or as it seems the citizens of Québec call it “Moreal” was my first stop in Canada. I landed on the 10th of August late at night and was surprised how fast the immigration process worked. Just needed to show my passport, the permit and my finances. Then I got a document and was…

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…

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…

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…

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,…

New York II – USA

It was not my fist visit to New York. The fist time I was able to visit this beautiful city was back in 2012. I already posted about it. New York, oh what this city does to me. It was my first oversea and my first single trip. It was great to come back and…

Chicago – USA

I went to visit the USA for a second time almost a year ago. It was a three weeks’ vacation mostly solo travel but also some days with friends and family. Since a friend of mine studied near Chicago I choose to not only spend the time in New York, my next Saturday blog is…
