Do you know that itchy feeling you get when you stay in one place too long? I get that all the time. I can recall plenty of days where I should have been studying and instead I did my own study of creating my next travel plan. Money usually has the biggest influence on where I can go, so I try to travel on a budget. Spend less, travel more!
My first ever trip alone was a week to New York. Adrenaline was pumping through my body as I arrived at the airport and the airport shuttle drove through the mighty streets of New York City. This was the start of many trips on my own, staying in hostels and counting my money so that I could see as much of the world as possible.
I promised myself I would one day go back to NY, because I fell in love with the city. I haven’t been yet, but there are so many places to explore. Many people are surprised to hear I do have a degree and still I’m picking up minimum wage jobs all over the world. My CV is mix of exotic jobs, totally unrelated to my education in media, but it is a great representation of myself. I love a lot of things and have a lot of interests and I don’t see why you’d have to choose one and drop the rest. I spent summers taking people around Europe as a tour leader, winters on the ski slopes.
I recently landed in Berlin to take on a new challenge. I am now responsible for the team of tour leaders in Eastern Europe. It is great to have a home, but I miss the road. I’m glad my job still gives me opportunities to see new places. Working for a travel company has its perks!
I love taking photos and documenting my trips. I’m usually freakishly well prepared, but in travel some things cannot be predicted. I’m always keeping an eye out for new destinations and little adventures. Here I’d like to share my experiences with you. Maybe you enjoy reading about others’ experiences like me, maybe you are actually planning a trip. Either way, I like to share my experiences and create a blog full of ideas, stories and inspiration. I hope you enjoy my memories as much as I do!
