My kind of traveling

I would describe myself definitely as a traveler and not a tourist. I like to discover places apart from the crowds and getting in touch with locals.

I usually travel on a budget and always love to discover new ways saving up money without missing out any experience and opportunity.

I’ve tried different ways to travel. Currently, I am backpacking with my boyfriend Eduardo through Asia. We are back in Europe from our seven months trip to Asia planning our next trips.

I have an University degree in Tourism Management. Not only to be able to find even cheaper deals for my trips. But for one day to be able to make my passion become my carrier. But before that I still have big plans…

Almost two years ago, I’ve packed my bags and moved from the peaceful Harz Mountains in Germany to the lively sunny side of Spain.

Why traveling?

I’ve discovered my big love New York City on a student exchange program in 2010 and got immediately bitten by the travel bug. Since then I am filled with wanderlust and it doesn’t let me get away.

I have visited 30 countries so far but my bucket list keeps growing.

The purpose of this blog is to inspire you to leave your comfort zone and go out to see the beauty of this world. I wanna show that everyone is able to travel even if the budget is tight. And I want to help you getting the most from your travel piggy bank in order to make amazing memories. 

My travel partner

We met 2015 when he let me and my friend Alina sleep on his couch in Barcelona, after Alina made him a request on Couchsurfing.

Just 14 days later we sat together on a bus from Hanover to Amsterdam.

And now we travel the world together. Well, firstly Asia, but you gotta start somewhere, don’t ya?
