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…

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…

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…

Québec City – Canada

Some people told me that Québec is worth a short visit and I have to agree. Sadly two out of three day’s it was raining and storming so I wasn’t able to see all of what I had planned to. I went out the first day because it didn’t looked like rain would come soon…

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…

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…

Brussels – Belgium

Visiting Brussels was the longest stop on my road trip through the Benelux states. In French it is called Bruxelles, in Dutch Brussel and in German Brüssel. This multicultural background of Belgium is fascinating to me. This city has French as the main language but most of the citizens speak Dutch and English as well….

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…

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…

Singapore

My last episode of this awesome almost eight-month journey though diverse countries in Asia ended in Singapore. First, I didn’t even want to visit Singapore because I thought it is to artificial and not typical Asian. But then I got a really cheap flight back home from there so I decided to stay for four…
