2016 Travel Throwback

Ever since I lived in the USA for two years, I caught the travel bug and completely got addicted to that entire lifestyle. 2016 was incredible and I was lucky enough to have had some terrific adventures which I want to share with all of you!

January – March: Thailand

The year started off with a teaching gig in amazing Thailand (read more about this awesome job!). I got to spend a good amount of sunny days in all party of Thailand while it was winter in Germany. The best thing was that I got paid to travel to non touristy cities and areas of the country through my job.

Even better were the amazing people I met, both work colleagues and students. It was so insiring to meet all these kind and cheerful kids that treated you like a rockstar πŸ™‚

April: Chicago

Honeycomb at Lincoln Park

After a great adventurous time in Thailand I found somewhat cheap flights to Chicago and just HAD to go see my friends and host family for a few weeks. I had a blast! I consider this my second home, first being the world itself hehe

June: The Netherlands

My friend Christina and I explored beautiful Holland for one week and visited Amsterdam, Zandvoort, The Hague and Rotterdam where met great people and enjoyed a good time in every place.

Another place, another job. The summer of 2016 I spent working as a kids tour guide in Italy and Spain.

July: Spain

Tough beach life!

5 awesome weeks that summer just playing games by the beach and dancing in the clubs – all paid for!

September: Belgium

Beautiful Brussels

After settling in at college I took a long weekend trip to Belgium and explored the beauty of Brussels, strolled through Ghent and met up with a friend in Bruges. The small size of the country and good train connection makes it so easy to hop from city to city in no time!

After that trip I concentrated on a new chapter of my life, college. For the next four months I was having a routine with going to work and studying but of course this didn’t last long and I started on a new adventure through Asia in the beginning of 2017 πŸ™‚

I’ve got a feeling that this year will be even crazier with many fabulous trips and both new as well as familiar places – soooooo excited!

Hope you all follow along the journey and maybe I can inspire some to visit new destinations as well :*
