Two Years Later: The Journey Continues

I’ve come up with a lot of stupid ideas in my life. Like that time I thought driving a motorcycle at a car show with fake nails was a good idea. (It was my last time on a motorcycle and the one and only time I ever had fake fingernails.) Or like that time I … Continue reading “Two Years Later: The Journey Continues”

My Honest Thoughts on Solo Travel

I’m not a solo traveler. I never claimed to be one, I never used the label “solo female traveler” or the hashtag #wegosolo. Yet there were a few occasions I traveled more or less by myself, and my latest getaway to Vienna and Bratislava was even a classical solo trip. But honestly, I’m conflicted about solo … Continue reading “My Honest Thoughts on Solo Travel”

The European Capital Curse

For some travelers it’s the one of the worst travel sins, but I’m absolutely guilty of it: Visiting (European) capital cities. Prague, Czech Republic Budapest, Hungary How often have I had a conversation with someone from England that went something like this: “So, have you been to England at all?” — “Yes!” — “Oh great! … Continue reading “The European Capital Curse”

However, it’s … Continue reading “On Wasting The Twenties”

Life, Travel, and Finding Balance

Admittedly, my travel life has been quite dull lately. I’m truly not happy with that. Plus, it’s really not helpful when writing a blog in the travel niche either. We all know that I can’t keep up with the long term travelers anyway, but I still feel like I need to justify why I haven’t … Continue reading “Life, Travel, and Finding Balance”

New Year, New Unpredictability

It’s both beautiful and terrifying, the idea of a blank page. All empty and untouched, meaning anything could happen. A full range of possibilities. And yet, endless possibilities also leave room for fear, doubt, and that stupefying feeling of being simply overwhelmed with everything that could be done. Where to start? The first sentence is … Continue reading “New Year, New Unpredictability”

A New Beginning

A while ago, I read an article on some kind of semi-dubious internet site introducing a study on the latest posts of all WordPress blogs out there (at least, that’s what I remember the article being about). Interestingly enough, two thirds of all the blogs out there had their latest post starting with “Sorry I … Continue reading “A New Beginning”
