About me and how it began

My name is Denise and I’ve started travelling after finishing High School.
I live in mid europe but technically I call many places my home while on the road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why did I start travelling?

Like for most people it started with my year abroad. After High School I’ve decided that I was not really willing for work yet so I planned my get away. It’s been my life long dream to go to the USA and so I’ve just made it become reality.
I went to an international school in California where I met people from all over the world all nationalities, religions and customs. And that’s when I realized that this is what I am really interested in – what I really love.

To get to know different people, lifestyles and customs. See places I only know from TV and books. Make those pictures a real life experience.

How to afford travelling?

Well, other than many other travellers I do have a firm job and home. After each travel I come home again back to the same place. On one hand that is not what I am looking for I like going from place to place, on the other hand it’s sometimes nice knowing to be back home furthermore it is easier to pay for travelling when having a firm job.

 

How often do you travel?
Well, always depending on how long I am staying at a place and how far it is,Β I think around 10 – 12 places a year.
Considering that I live in the middle of europe it is really easy for me to travel to several place within a few days or go on weekend trips.

Also depending on the budget too πŸ˜‰

 

Often I get asked about my favorite place, or the best place I’ve ever been.

Well.. I can’t tell you. Every country is different, every country is special in it’s own way.
While you’ve got beautiful amazing fjords and icy places in Scandinavia you have the beautiful rainforest in and temples in Thailand, the fascination remains in Egypt, Athens and Rome and beautiful beaches in so many countries.

There is not that ONE perfect place on earth but many amazing places with supplied with different wonders.

  1. I love what you’re doing! It’s just what I try and do myself, so far I’ve had two gap years off uni πŸ™‚ because I think they are so valuable an experience for young people. Living in Australia is kind of expensive to travel but you find ways haha

      • I studied in France for a year while being an Au pair and then the second year I was in Brazil. I’m now back in Brazil for a visit. It’s so hard to stay away haha. It sounds like you’ve been to some amazing places!

    • Wow thank you! 😊 Oh so far I didn’t have any issues but I am usually not alone. Only in save places. Like you don’t have to worry to go to Rome alone. Wouldn’t go alone to Africa though. Too dangerous for a European girl πŸ˜‰
      So.. I am careful with the country choice. I think my mom wouldn’t let me go alone to a not save country anyways xD
