Bavaria & Austria

At the start of the month my twin and I set off on a roadtrip to pick up our sister in Switzerland who was moving back home. On our way to Switzerland my twin and I made a stop in Munich to visit a friend and initially planned on spending the first proper night in…

From car to camper

A few weeks ago I decided to start my own little DIY project and bought a combi vehicle (Renault Kangoo), named it Big Berta and transformed it from a normal street car into a 5-minute set up ready to use for camping. Why I decided to buy a combi vehicle rather than an actual van…

Project Mini Camper

Now that I had decided that I will most likely stay in Europe/Germany for the next year or two, it was as pretty soon clear that I needed to get my hands on my own four wheels again. While a few weeks ago I looked for a cheap, small run around car things turned out…

Home Sweet Home

It was to be the fulfillment of a dream: a trip around the world for at least a year, starting in February 2020. By mid-March, everything was going well, but then the Corona virus brought almost the entire world to a standstill. This not only confused my planning, but also called into question the journey…

Melbourne

I have been in Melbourne now for a little over seven weeks and I still haven’t gotten off that roller coaster of emotions that I had described in a previous post about what living in Australia during Covid19 feels like for me. After the two weeks isolation due to the flight from Brisbane from Melbourne,…

Now that I have so much time on my hands, I figured it would be a good idea to retreat and backtrack to my arrival and my first few weeks in Australia. First of all, Australia wasn’t actually meant to be my destination at this point. After my trip to Russia, I had a flight…

Living in Australia during Covid19

Australia is closing, but I’m not going home. Three weeks ago I was hanging out on the beach in the still relaxed Australia, when back at home they were slowly implementing a lockdown in terms of a curfew-threat. I was surrounded by fellow travelers, some like me, hadn’t given the Covid Situation much thought; others…

Traveling across Russia by train

Covering a distance of 9,289 km, the Trans Siberian Railway Network happens to be the longest railway network in the world ever – bridging the gap between Moscow and the east ends of Russia. While you travel on the Trans-Siberian or Trans-Mongolian Railway you will pass 6 time zones, transverse taiga, and tundra in Russia, grasslands,…

The Trans-Siberian Railway – What I wish I had known before

There is something about crossing an entire continent by rail that had been on my do-to-list for quite some time. I was restrained by fear not wanting to do it alone, in midst some very strong stereotypical idioms about Russia and Russian people. But, at the start of February, I took the chance, flew over…
