All sorts of things

Some stories don’t fit any category, some I wrote especially for this category. This is where you’ll find personal stories, recipes, funny stories like when an immigration officer googled my name, or my boyfriend said those three magical words over home-made Mexican food

Bogota

First Week in Colombia – Impressions

By

Colombia – First Impressions Exactly one week ago I arrived in Colombia – the first week of many has passed. Some of you might know that I’ll be spending some months in Bogotá studying at one of the country’s best (and most expensive) universities. I’ve already lived in neighbouring Venezuela a couple of years ago, so much is familiar and I’ve felt somewhat home right from the beginning. Most of that “feeling home” I owe to my lovely abuelita, my host granny. But let’s start in the beginning. I’ve told you that I missed my flight from Mexico back to…

Travel Resolutions for 2017

By

Travel Resolutions for 2017 Another year has gone by and many of the usual resolutions (like losing weight, learning a new language, moving abroad, …) have not been fulfilled and let’s be honest: the moment we wrote them down or thought about them, we knew already that they wouldn’t be accomplished anyway. That’s why I’ve started to do just travel resolutions for the last years and most of those promises to myself I’ve kept. In 2014 I wanted to become a Divemaster in Mexico – in September I successfully completed the course. In 2015 I wanted to do a road trip…

Why I won’t use my Return Ticket from Mexico

By

Why I won’t use my Return Ticket from Mexico It’s the time! I’m excited as if it was Christmas again! It’s that time for adventures again! You might already know that I decided to go back to university in Fall. The Master’s programme that I’m studying brings a lot of travelling with it. The next big thing might just be temporary, but I’m happy to share this with you: I’ll be spending some time abroad. Again. I’ll be studying abroad. In Latin America. In Colombia! Another step back I’ve found pretty cheap flights to Mexico back in May. So I…

I have a Gift for you

By

I have a Gift for you Christmas is approaching fast and this year is actually the first year that I spend Christmas in Austria and not abroad like I did the last two years. I had chosen to fly to Mexico and enjoy my holidays exploring the underwater world or with a backpack and eating way too many Quesadillas. To be completely honest, that was the plan for this year as well. But instead of flying to Mexico before the 24th of December I postponed it a little. And yes, again it’s Mexico. But this time I won’t board the…

Psst Warsaw – That Time I was the Testimonial of Warsaw

By

That time I was the Testimonial of Warsaw Some of you may already know that I was invited to be Warsaw’s testimonial for their most recent campaign. Therefore I travelled to the gorgeous Polish capital and explored it a bit on my own. Surely I haven’t seen it all (can you?) and already wish to go back asap. But I did have some tasty and mouth-watering food 😉 So here it is and I’m super proud and honoured having had this opportunity and experience! Let me know what you think about it in the comments below!

How I saved almost 10k riding trains

By

How I saved almost 10k using public transportation Since getting my ÖsterreichCard in September 2015 I have been using the trains all the time – I bought the advantage card for 1049€. Why? Even though it takes a little longer to get around by train than a car it still saves me a ton of money. I also have time to read, work or study while on the train. I am not a huge fan of commuting by car. Driving the same route quickly bores me and I am not as focused as I should be. Additionally, a car costs a…

Jackpot Upper Austria

By

… or the reason why I’m switching the state No, I didn’t win the lottery – at least no millions have been transferred to my account. What I’m sharing with you today is still very exciting: Everything will change! Well, maybe not everything, but a looooooot! Changes are exciting, really exciting! Many things are changing or have already changed. How should I even start? In the last couple of weeks, my world turned upside down – in the most positive way of course! Three important things are changing completely. And I’m super looking forward to every single one! But now:…
