10 Reasons to Travel During Off Season

•••
There's nothing good about the end of summer - except of course that the best time to travel starts right now! Everybody likes a good summer vacation, but to be honest, traveling during the peak season can be a drag. After all, you're not the only one who's had that idea!

I did it - I quit my job to travel!f

•••
While writing this I am sitting in a quiet cafe in beautiful Cuzco, Peru. I'm not Peruvian though, I am German and I live in Berlin, Germany. A few weeks ago I arrived in Peru to chase my dream of improving my Spanish, doing volunteer work and enjoying the beautiful landscapes of Peru, especially Cuzco - I am a sucker for mountains and Inca history! But how [...]

10 Things I wish I'd known before my First Solo Trip

•••
With age comes wisdom. I've been traveling - not always, but very often solo - since I finished high school. Back then I just grabbed my backpack, which was usually too heavy, stuffed some naiveté in a tote bag and just went for it.

I am scuba diving in the Andaman Sea and experiencing a dream come true. Or I would be if my stupid ears would play along and equalize.

I try my best not to get irritated[...]

Why my Adventure Body is the new Beach Body

•••
I see it all the time on social media, Facebook statuses, Instagram posts, and even tweets, all from women who say they need to work on their ‘beach bod’ or ‘bikini bods’. This is often due to summer being right around the corner, or more likely in my social circle, a trip they have coming up. Any time they may be seen on a beach, or in a pool I suppose. But[...]
