Come and see what I love about AMSTERDAM (in pictures)

This is a tribute in pictures, so sit back, relax, and let me refresh you eyes! Early in the morning, Sunday, and alone strolling around the streets of Amsterdam     A view from the boat tour which explains the perspective. Isn’t it beautiful…architecture-porn!     Do you fancy birds? Me not, but they chilled like […]


What no-one told me about AMSTERDAM (and what YOU should know)

1) You can rent a boat and drive the canals on your own! Most people do the commercial canal tours which are offered at every corner of the city. Don’t! Its much cooler to get yourself a picnic and drive through the water streets on your own. You will see lots of private boats where locals […]


You have only ONE thing you can visit in Sevilla? The Real Alcazar should be it!

What is the Real Alcazar? The Alcazar is not crowded most time of the year for nothing. The beauty of the fortress palace is going to catch the visitor, bringing him back in time and making him feel the centuries of monarch generations who lived and ruled there. Built already in 913, it is nowadays the residence […]


A walk through Kathmandu

When I arrived for the first time in Kathmandu, March 2015, it was during the coldest march since many years. Everybody kept telling me this. It was raining and it was dark. And with dark I mean: no electricity, therefore no lights on the street. Thus I felt in love with this city, and since then I’ve been […]


Gili Trawangan in breathtaking pictures

T is the largest of the three Gili Islands, which means that the permanent population is only about 800 inhabitants. Gili Trawangan was the first of the three islands to attract backpackers, but in the 1990s, therefore the island got the reputation of being a wild party island (which is still true).     Now luxury and too huge […]


Inspiring quotes from travellers I met!

Sometimes I forgot their names. Sometimes I was frustrated and not open for a conversation. Sometimes I was in love and therefore thinking about something else. But I still can name the place and why these quotes are so inspiring, not only for me but for any other part & full-time traveller.   My friend Tina […]


Travel-moments that can’t be shared

What is the purpose of a travelblog? Is it to guide you? To tell you in which hotel you should sleep? Which food you should eat? On which beach you should lie? Is it to entertain you? Let you delve into new places and experiences? The description of how street food in Saigon smells? How it […]


Sea-salt, sea-girl (why I love the sea)

Once Jules Verne said: The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. So here’s my tribute to the place I where I feel whole, and happy.   Once in a lifetime you should go there: Phi Phi Island, Thailand   Italy, most visited in summer – what a mistake. Winters are so beautiful […]


Hamburgs Speicherstadt – in love with bricks

Speicherstadt is Hamburgs answer of Venice’s canals. It’s less colorfull, nearly empty in winter, and consists of bricks. A lot of bricks. They are brown-redisch and…fascinating. I won’t provide much information about history, this is more a tribute in pictures. Have a look:         It’s the biggest storehouse ensemble of the world and […]


Reeperbahn: alone with red lights

One attraction of Hamburg is the famous Reeperbahn in district St. Pauli. Famous…for what? Well for example for that… And for that as well… Okay, thats only ONE for women, all others aim as usually…men. But don’t worry, there is enough to do and to see on REEPERBAHN, the main street of Hamburgs red light district. […]


Krakow: I left with sorrow and a luggage filled with cherry wodka

Okay listen, I’m not going to say this twice: go to Krakow. Don’t even think of another destination for the next city trip. Krakow is your match! Trust me. It’s not only the flavoured Wodka (although…) which you can taste in Wodka cafes and bars (hazelnut, cherry!!, pear, plum and raspberry are my favourites). It’s the atmosphere, […]


Auschwitz: Where time has no power above memories

It was the brightest day of fall October 2015 when I followed the path of death to Auschwitz-Birkenau. This day trip can be booked from Krakow which gives your city trip a macabre touch…and more than that. Auschwitz will leave you with a ripped soul and wondering whereas mankind deserves any good.   Decisions and death: […]


Boracay – A tribute in pictures

Yes it’s crowded, but when you go in low season (I was in July 2015)…okay it’s still crowded. But you get to know some stunning moods of nature.     But baby…there should be laughter after pain, there should be sunshine after rain…theses things had always been the same…so why worry (Dire Straits, Why worry)   […]


workaway: learn from my experience

When I decided to quit and go on my long trip I broke up 3 months before I left. Not really time enough to save some serious money. On the other hand I couldn’t imagine just laying on the beach for a couple of months. The idea of volunteering was there. For a long time. I […]
