Spring has sprung and so far it’s been a pretty interesting one. From clear blue skies over hot summerly weather to rainy, dreary winter cold – April and the beginning of May 2016 has certainly been one of a kind. I heard it’s been the same in other parts of the world, and especially Europe (snow in May in Germany, hello?). Read More »
It’s important to remind oneself of certain milestones. To stop and be still for a moment, cherishing everything that has been accomplished up until this moment.
Today marks the day I entered New York six years ago. On March 15th of 2010, I decided to put my previous life and expectations on hold and to enter a new dream. Read More »
Second Day in Rome: Time to get up early and photograph the Colosseum! After being a bit turned off by the high amount of tourists swarming the streets the day before, I decided that I wanted to see the magnificent building in a different light. Read More »
Spending 48 hours in Roma, I was hard-pressed to find some interesting things to do and not waste my time on things I was not so keen on doing.

I had almost forgotten what it felt like to be surrounded by fresh air, green grass, heaps of trees and wilderness. Being in a metropolis for way too many years in a row, my body was craving some action closer to nature. Indeed, the parents still live in the middle of nowhere and close to the ultimate paradise of forests, farmlands & Co. Read More »
When traveling back home, I am lucky to have a few airport options I can land at. They can also make for greater confusion (more options tend to do that), but Luxembourg and Duesseldorf are the closest in proximity with 1 to 1 ½ hour driving distance away. Of course I can also deal with the beast of Frankfurt International airport. Read More »

The time has come to bid another good-bye to New York. In the next 2 1/2 weeks I will be busy exploring foreign lands and old grounds. A trip back home, a 3-day-hiatus to Italy and a 2-day-layover in Iceland – there is so much to explore.

On Monday, I spontaneously got to visit one of my most favorite cities on the East Coast of America. Washington DC – capital of the US, epitome of diversity and city of culture and cherry blossoms. Read More »
In addition to other amazing holidays, St. Patrick’s Day seems to be one of the biggest festive days here in the US. I’m not sure how and when it started to become big, but ever since Americans like to celebrate anything Irish on the memorable day of March 17th. Read More »
March 15th 2010 was a hopeful day, when I left my parent’s house in Germany and drove to the airport. “Out of all cities in America, why New York?” my father had asked me a few weeks prior. “I’d be way more comfortable with you going to Chicago or Los Angeles, where I know people you can stay with!”Read More »
