travelling alone

Stupid reasons why peolpe don’t travel (alone)  

1) Money money money Travelling is super expensive. The locals are going to overreach you, shopping is much more expensive and worse quality than at home. Oh, and you have no money because of the super huge TV you just bought.   2) No time (or: my super busy super important job) You have to go […]

The 1 Million star Hotel: A stay at Bubble Hotel Bali

By accident we found the so called 1 million star hotel/ bubble on Bali, while combing through the internet and making plans for getting some of mindblowing and novel experience on the island which is packed with everything ever entered a plane looking for balinese full body massage.

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 […]

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 […]

Invisible in Indonesia – The non-existant role of women

I love Asia, I really do. Although…not so the mosques…the noise at 4am during ramadan. That maybe not. It HAD something to do with religion, culture and more, why I felt invisible during my 3 weeks in Indonesia this year, though I’ve not made this experience last year in Jakarta. Traveling not as usually alone but […]

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, […]

Dates I don’t write about

Once I was bored and I really don’t know why – but I looked up the definition of a date. Weird little thing. Who has written THAT! Wanna hear about it (of course you want so you’ll keep on reading – thats my plan!).   A form of courtship, which may include any social activity undertaken […]

Top 5 things you can NOT do in Kampot, and why you should still go there

Backbackers come to Kampot on their way to Siem Reap or Phnom Penh. Travelguides praise the city as laid back and romantic (river view, haha)…and quiet. I came to Kampot after an eventful time in Siem Reap. Angkor Wat made me speachless, then turned me into a philosoph, I met the assumed man of my dreams, […]

Safer dates

When I started my trip alone, people tried to make me believe that the world is made of two types of guys: the ones want to kiss, others to rob you. I had to listen to lectures what could happen, because “you are travelling alone as a  w.o.m.a.n.”. It was really a pain in the…neck. Guess […]


8 month alone in Asia and can’t get enough! Hello world, hello slow travel….   You see, I tried to write a headline which explains everything you might expect finding on this page. To be honest, I don’t know what more to add. I’m blogging about travel, right. So it’s obvious that I love knitting. I […]
