5 Things I Loved about Stuttgart

Stuttgart is not the kind of city that would appear on a Europe-in-20-days itinerary. It’s not exactly the prettiest city and it’s not really famous beyond the borders of Germany. But still, it might come up on the advanced traveler’s radar for two reasons: It has two airports that might be cheaper to fly into if […]

Photo Essay: The Best of October 2015

I have a love/hate relationship with October: When the sun is out and the foliage glows all technicolor in golden light, I swear that October is my favorite month of the year. But when it’s foggy and gloomy for days and I have to go grocery shopping in the dark because the sun sets at […]

I grew up the middle of nowhere with a 20 kilometer distance to the next (terrible) small town coffee shop and almost no public transportation, especially not after 7pm.

Photo Essay: The Best of September 2015

Photo Essay: The Best of August 2015

I had planned for August to be a slow month. With a lot of time for reading and writing and concentrating. August in a German university town like Göttingen means the city is pretty empty and the supermarkets actually still have frozen pizza on stock, which would never happen during the semester. Life feels a […]

Where To Drink Coffee in Hamburg

When I started traveling independently, I thought it was fun to have no plans whatsoever. I loved the romantic idea of an old car, a paper map and all the freedom in the world. I quickly learned that traveling with no plans at all is often a stupid idea — especially in Europe during peak […]

Paris in August via Instagram

There was a time when I was really into writing Instagram photo blog posts, but I haven’t been doing a lot of them lately as I felt like my images were becoming too repetitive — even though I’m still old-fashioned and take photos with both my dSLR (for the blog) and my phone (for Instagram) […]
