I am Verena, a german twenty-something,who felt in love with travelling a few years ago. This love is getting stronger and stronger with every trip that I take. I can confidently say, that traveling is the greatest love of my life. To travel means for me more than just reaching destinations. Travelling for me is the origin of my inspiration, my motivation, my believes and changed myself as strong as nothing else before.
A few years back, when I graduated from university with my master degree with the young age of 22 years, all I wanted to chase was the big business career. Then I discovered the world. After living in China for 6 month for my thesis and discovering the backpackers lifestyle, step by step everything changed.
Through travelling I totally changed my view on life and on this world. My ethics, moral values and my priority shifted immense, through all the experiences I made while exploring life and the world.
I met a lot of people on this world too afraid to travel or people planning to travel but need that last kick in their a****. I want to show you how amazing travelling is. I am a part time solo traveler and want to encourage everyone to grab a backpack and go into this world, no matter if you have a partner or not. Don’t let your fears hold you back to explore the best thing we have: The world!
You can find here a lot of articles about travelling alone or with friends, meeting people, about me and what is moving me.
Why I do so? I believe that travelling makes you a better person and with that makes this world a better place. I believe if we travel more and get in touch with other people, cultures and lifes we become better. Better in being human, better in understanding circumstances and lives out of our scope and better in building up our empathy towards others and the world.
Let’s grab a backpack, get lost but don’t get hurt!
