About me

Hi, my name is Eva and this is my brand new blog. My biggest passion is travelling. I decided to share my stories and experiences from my off-the-beaten-path destinations and also my business trips with you here. I am hoping to give you inspiration and take away your fear of travelling to excotic or extrem locations. Also I want to show you how business trips can be fun.

Most people I know already consider me a well traveled person, and I guess I have traveled to a few more or less exotic places. But there is so much more out there! If I were to count, I have been to 24 countries. But to me that sounds like a very small number. So I am about to change that. But I am not going to start collecting passport stamps, I am more interested in really experiencing places and cultures. Slow travel is my style.

If you want to read what got me into travelling, click here for my post on my obsession with natural and cultural wonders.

If you are interested in my most extrem trip so far, read here about my hike through the Empty Quarter.

Horse with a view

A bit of background information on myself: I am a Radiologist and work for a big company in a small hospital consulting team. My job includes traveling every now and then, lately not so much though. So in writing about my travels, I hope to relive some of them. I am based in Nuremberg but originally from Hannover in the north of Germany.

As I love to eat, the local food is a huge part of my travel experience. I am a little picky though when it comes to meat, so the Asian street food markets are quite a challenge for me.

Hiking in the Sahara

My other passion is reading. I love books, fiction that is, and lately I have taken to reading books that relate to my travels somehow. In Oman I read a book about the first crossing of the Empty Quarter. When sailing in Greece I read Treasure Island. The nice thing about this is, when I pick up the books again, I will always remember the place, the smells and sounds of my holiday.

Lastly, I like to take photos, if you want to see more of them, feel free to follow me on Instagram.
