Hi there, this is me – Anne! 😉

I am a 24 year old girl, currently living in Germany. I love hiking, climbing, snowboarding and recently learned to love surfing very much! I travel the world with a huge smile on my face – no matter what 🙂

What kind of traveler am I?

My passion is to travel the world, experience new cultures and discover new landscapes! While travelling in the United States a lot over the last few years, I felt the need to structure my trips. I didnt want to miss anything, so I loved to make a plan on how to combine the most stunning sights and hikes. I am still in love with just getting lost somewhere and trying whatever I find – but I dont want to travel to a place & afterwards see, that I missed one of the best secret spots that was just SO close, just because I did not do my research 😉

One thing I really like are multi stop flights! I recently bought a trip Germany – Los Angeles – Calgary in Canada – Maui – Germany and saved a ton of money (only paid 1.000 EUR for all flights!!) with this combination and saw so many different places!

Why start another travel blog?

So why did I decide to write a blog?! Because the research part is always taking a lot of work… Maybe someone feels the same way and likes one of my recent trips or somebody finds a nice spot he hasn´t read about yet 🙂 Maybe I can even help somebody to find self confidence to travel the world alone – just get out there, do what you like, no matter if non of your friends or family wants to join! I hiked the Grand Canyon alone (and many other trips) – and I just loved any single second of it!
