World: Athens, Greece

If you are following me on Instagram you may know that I went on a short trip to Athens, Greece in February.

My decision-making process kinda went like this: “I’m bored, I don’t have much money, I don’t want to wait for someone to join me… – wait! I don’t need anyone to join me… let’s go!”

So within a week I ordered a little travel guide, booked a hostel and a flight, packed my bag and went my merry way

It really is as easy as that. And it should be.

Here are some impressions of my time in Athens – a wonderful city with a lot to discover!

Wow, I cannot believe I never noticed that I didn’t post this until now.

The new years fireworks and christmas presents indicate that this is happened not lately, but quite some time ago. I apologise for the general lack of blog posts these past couple of months. With spring finally here and a resolution I made to go out and take more photos, I hope this blog will get more attention as well.

Charming San Francisco

After my whirlwind time in LA, I headed up to San Francisco for a couple of days. My time there was far more laid back.

Here are a couple of my observations:

The hills are far steeper than I imagined them to be.
It’s an easy city to navigate. I had almost no problems finding my way from and to certain spots.
I love the fog.
The weather is nothing like in other parts of California and I love it.
Redwood trees really are massive.
Layering clothes is the way to go.
70s music videos are the best.
Alcatraz tours are booked out weeks in advance (such a bummer).
Ghiradelli dark chocolate sea salt caramel is the holy grail.
Sausalito is a picturesque spot to eat lunch (or breakfast. Or dinner.).
The Mission district has great graffiti.
Guacamole is everything.

Thank you, Gina and Staci for welcoming me in your charming apartment. For showing me around and for loving food as much as I do. I had the best time.

Los Angeles, I don’t hate you.

Los Angeles has been an incredible start to an incredible journey and more adventures are to come.

I’ve had so many people beg me to not hate LA and no, I didn’t. In fact, I had a great time, filled with fun activities, laughter, long days, late nights and little sleep. This is how exciting LA was for me.
