Hello and Welcome to this little Travel Site
Travelling around the world is probably one of those things that every single one of us dreams about when we are younger. But then later on in life, when it comes to actually doing it, we find so many excuses why it doesn’t work right now, that we don’t even realize that our life is flying by and we never end up doing what we actually wanted to do.
While this is true for many aspects of our life, this website is aimed to help you understand that travelling around the world is in fact very possible and within reach of every single one of us. All it takes is quitting the job, packing a backpack and leaving friends and family behind. Agreed, at first it does sound a bit crazy to leave everything behind and set off on a trip all alone, but on the other hand, this little bit of craziness is all it takes to have the greatest adventure of your life. If you are really dreaming about travelling, then let’s be honest, nothing is actually holding you back, besides yourself.
While you are still working out the details of how to see the world for yourself, for the time being you can at least get a glimpse of those parts of the world that I have been fortunate enough to visit. When I first started travelling, it never occurred to me to set up a website or a blog and write about my experiences. I simply started by posting little messages on facebook for friends and family at home since I didn’t even have a phone with me and couldn’t be reached otherwise. Over time those little messages went from stating my location and well-being to a more serious Travel Diary, with daily photos and stories from along the way.
After two years of travelling and numerous requests, the point is finally reached to set up an actual website in order to make the entire Travel Diary, the Travel Photos and the stories available for everyone who had not followed me from the beginning of my trip. Also part of this website are pages regarding travel preparation, the journey itself and trip assessment, which can hopefully give you some useful tips and recommendations for your own trip around the world.
The great thing about the diary writing style is that not only does it include a lot of personal experiences, but since it is written continuously by day, it also gives you a great idea of how life on the road actually can be and what to expect from each single day. For your convenience you can filter the diary by region, by country, by city and place, or you can just read the days relating to topics like, Airplane Travel, Train Travel, Bus Travel, Border Crossing and so forth. But if you fancy reading everything from the beginning, then you should really start with the very First Day of my trip.
It seems important to mention that obviously everything you will ever read on this site is nothing but my own personal opinion or experience and is in no way intended to be offensive, insulting or discriminating in any shape or form. Each entry is rather a reflection of a particular moment and the emotions it inspired.
Travel life can be very exciting and it can be very frustrating at times, but in any case you should try it for yourself, especially if it really is something you have been dreaming about. Travelling around the world is clearly not only an adventurous and unforgettable experience, but also one that can broaden your horizon in so many unexpected ways. And as mentioned earlier, nothing is really holding you back. So go travelling and see the world, but in the meantime, check out some of the highlights of my trip. Enjoy… : )
