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…

Tofino and Ucluelet – Canada

Tofino is supposed to be the best spot on the west coast for beaches and from what I have seen so far, I couldn’t agree more. It was stunning to experience this beautiful and stormy sea! Especially in winter it is the spot for storm watching and I totally get why. It wasn’t even high…

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…

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…

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…

Ottawa – Canada

The capital of Canada and as I learned it got chosen strategically because it didn’t border with the USA and also marks the line between the English and French speaking part. I started in the French speaking part because I knew I would work there without speaking French and thus wanted to travel from east…

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…

Magdeburg – Germany

Magdeburg was one of the cities I commuted to for almost two years weekly starting for only three months in 2015 and fulltime in October 2017 after my master studies. It was my duty as a team lead to visit each branch at least once a week. Dresden also was one of them. Sometimes I…

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…

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…

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…

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…
