I am a 24 year old girl from Germany living in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
I love traveling, learning new languages, doing yoga and getting in touch with people from all over the world.
The last two and a half years of my life I past my time working in receptive travel agencies, renting a room in Airbnb at home, spending my free time at hostels and helping out at a bar every once in a while in this beautiful Caribbean spot.
How did I get here? - Good question. In Germany we have the word “Fernweh” which basically means that you need to travel or need to be abroad. I have that a lot, so when I turned 18, after my graduation, I travelled for one year in Latin America. After that I decided to study tourism in a dual study and got a job offer at the agency in Playa del Carmen.
I got to know a lot of people and stories that’s for sure, and I love living in the Caribbean, but now Playa del Carmen feels like home to me, which me
I love Bacalar, because it is super beautiful, the people are nice and it has such a magical vibe that calms everybody down!
Sustainability is really important and everybody takes care of the lake, forest and animals.
From Playa del Carmen you can get there by ADO bus which takes you about 3.5 hours.
There are already a few hostels and low cost hotels to find for all kinds of travelers at Bacalar town and also in its surroundings around the lake. A night costs between 5 and 10USD depending if you want to sleep in a hammock, tent, school bus, dorm, private room or cabaña :)
It is perfect to escape from the loud party city Playa Del Carmen and just get to some chilly hammock over the water in the middle of now where watching the beautiful water or even the stars at night.
Almost every place has a swing and hammocks on the water. People love it to take awesome pictures.
Today I'm blogging on the go, hence the
live edition of travel with me!
On Wednesday, I met up with a few of my friends in London and one of them said they were going to Paris for a long weekend from Friday morning to Sunday.
I asked if I could come, and my friend thought that I was joking! How could I pass up the opportunity to visit one of my favorite cities in Europe and follow my friends preplanned itinerary?!
So, suffice to say, I gate crashed their little weekend getaway and I booked my flights and hotel the very same night.
Since this was such a last-minute spur of the moment decision to travel to Paris, I was expecting flights and hotel to be quite expensive, but
transavia gave me a really terrific deal for a return trip from London to Paris. The only slight set back was that I'd have to leave from Luton Airport in London and arrive at Orly Ai
I have been fascinated to see two of these technological marvels that have been "planted" in a town near my home. Their installation is a collaboration between the "city" of Chiasso and Age SA, a local electrical company.
This Smartflower has been "planted" in a roundabout near my home.
The design is an attempt to combine the functionality of solar panels with the beauty of an appealing design. It was produced for those that don’t have the possibility of using a classic roof top solar panel installation and would like something on the ground that doesn’t look ugly!
산토리니하면 떠오르는 색깔이 하얀색과 파란색이다.
푸른 바다 절벽 위로 새하얀 집들이 끝도없이 펼쳐져있고, 하얀집들은 모두 진파란 지붕을 가지고 있다.
이러한 이미지를 완벽히 표현해주는 아기자기한 기념품들은 산토리니 곳곳에서 팔고있다.
엽서, 그릇, 옷, 신발, 가방, 자석 등등 다양한 생활용품이 모두 산토리니의 느낌을 품고있다.
Continuation of travel along the Northern Dvina to the dredger.
And so, we reached the dredger, which washes the sand off the riverbed on the Northern Dvina River.
By the way, the river is correctly called the Small Northern Dvina, and this name is worn to the city of Kotlas, where the river Vychegda flows, then the Northern Dvina ceases to be the Small.
At the dredger, people are already working 2 weeks, as a watches. The majority of workers from Kotlas, the Arkhangelsk region.
The sand is thrown out closer to the shore.
By the pipe, which is on the
산토리니에는 이아마을과 피라마을이라는 대표적인 마을이 있다.
두 마을 모두 절벽 위에 새하얀 모습을하고 관광객들을 반기고있다.
CF에 자주 나오는 파란 지붕이 많은 곳은 이아마을이고, 그보다 한적한 여유로움을 주는 곳이 피라마을이다.
지금은 잘 사용하지않는 항구가 있고, 그곳에서 스쿠버다이버들이 바닷속에서 여유로움을 즐기고있다.

Asian Carriers are usually really good. Singapore Air, ANA, JAL, Korean Air, Cathay and Asiana etc. but even Chinese carries have new airplanes with modern seats these days. I was excited to test out my Airchina flight to Asia...
This is the big story I am most excited to share, so of course we're jumping right in so you can get to know me, and because I'm a dessert-first kinda girl.
I wrote this last year after my trip to a tiny town in Jamaica. This post embodies a huge turning point in my
I have been introducing new people to Steemit while staying in a hostel and have a new member to introduce to the Steemit community.
Staying in hostels while traveling is not only a great way to save money but it's also a fantastic way to meet interesting people who love to travel and a great way to discover new things to do and places to explore.
Travelers have great stories to tell and make interesting, new additions to Steemit and @lizanomadsoul has some amazing stories to share.
She is an amazing bartender working at the Hostel Rio where I'm staying in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico and is about to embark on a 2-year world adventure.
Naturally, I mentioned Steemit to her and suggested she blog about her experiences. I mentioned @heiditravels and others on Steemit that blog about their travels and she really loved the idea as she was already going to start a blog about her adventures.
She speaks and writes in three languages; English, German, and Spanish so if you're part of Operation Translation on Steemi
Half a month ago, I had the chance to travel to the Weizhou Island.
Weizhou island lies in Beihai, Guangxi Province. Its north is adjacent to Beihai city,south to Hainan Island. It is the youngest volcanic island in age of geography of China, and also is the largest island in Guangxi Province. Seen from the sky, it looks like meniscus.
Watching the sunrise is the most beautiful scenery in wucai Beach, because the beach is facing the direction of the rising sun. When the sun rises,the tide is out, the beautiful beach appears.Because the beach have been suffered ebbs and flows,there are many organisms in it, such as green moss,red,yellow,brownness etc. it is bright coloured ,very beautiful in the sunshine.
Pollok House is a large Georgian stately home located in the massive Pollok Country Park in the south side of Glasgow in Scotland. Glasgow is littered with parks but this one takes the biscuit for sheer size.
The house is set in some ridiculously grand grounds which are open to the public. It looks out onto the River Cart and is a little magnificent.
The grounds are divided up into many areas. To the left is the small maze garden.
Don't worry, I didn't get lost!
One thing Qatar Airways is not offering is the free Limo for Business Class customers. Airberlin and Etihad are offering a free Limo pickup in the departure and the arrival city. It is really nice being picked up by a driver for free.

There are conflicting reports as to whether there are fatalities. Amtrak announced that there was "an incident", then they admitted a vehicle collision...They have also been sure to tell us that the cafe remains open.
I was calling my mom when it happened, and they were blowing the horn so loud as we approached the intersection that I couldn't tell if she had picked up the phone. We hit right as she said "hello", and I was too confused to feign conversation.
The jolt of impact felt similar to riding in a car where the transmission doesn't shift smoothly. It was relatively mild, perhaps even unremarkable...then I saw debris and flames out my window. It smelled like burning rubber and gas, and it took hundreds of feet to come to a complete stop.
We have been stopped outside of Davis, OK for almost 3 hours while police and firemen investigate.
런던 시내에는 가 볼만한 마켓들이 꽤 있고, 각각의 특성이 독특하고 개성이 있어 여행하는 사람의 취향에 맞추어 들를 수 있다. 앤틱이 유명한 <포토벨로 마켓>, 유기동 식 자재와 신선한 식료품을 판매하는 <버로우 마켓>, 그리고 빈티지와 독특한 패션 소품들을 만날 수 있는 <캠든마켓> 등이 있다. 오늘 소개할 런던에서 가 볼만한 곳은 바로 <캠든마켓(Camden Market)>이다.
런던의 지하철 튜브(Tube)의 검정 색인 노던라인(Nothern Line)의 Camden 역에 하차하면 되고, 옥스포드서커스나 리젠트 스트릿, 홀본 등의 쇼핑 중심의 번화가에서도 캠든타운으로 향하는 버스 노선들이 다양해서 쉽게 찾아 갈 수 있다.
Hi people! I present some of my pictures in Cracov.
Thanks for the comments and upvote.
The crowd of stoners, a slice of life ranging from frumpy college students to the Hot Babes of Instagram, wall street types in suit and tie to gender-netrual punks in T-shirts, clean-cut economics majors to my own jewfro’d math-rockin’ ass, is united under one common goal: to smoke marijuana in the middle of Boston’s largest public park.
Cuz it’s 4:19pm on April 20th, 2017. After a century of amoral prohibition, marijuana is legal again. This is the first post-legalization smoke-up on the Boston Common, Boston’s largest park, for the holiday - even if, technically, public smoking is considered a petty crime.
In the past this event has been a protest, a display of civil disobedience
Jiufen [九份] is a small once-splendid-gold-mining-but-later-occupied-by-artists-after-deserted town on the mountain near Keelung ... blah blah blah .... Just see the previous post(s) here ...
This little restaurant is called "Jiufen Old Noodles House" (九份老麵店). It is almost the oldest local restaurant here so we come here to have meal every time as a support for the original Jiufen. Their dishes are also quite "old" or traditional which also fit my appetite as I am not... well... young. lol...
This time we had (in the order of photo appearance) beef noodle, beef tendon & belly, <str
