About: I have just finished school, and I have been travelling on my own before I return home to go to University
Why did you decide to travel? Because I have always loved travelling and i have travelled a lot in Europe but I really wanted to see the world and this was the perfect time to explore and see new countries and cultures before continuing with my studies.
Where do you come from? Kiel, Germany
Where do you want to go next? America (L.A. San francisco and New York) I have already bee to Thailand, Singapore and Australia.
What is your number one tip for travelling? Be open minded, don’t be shy just go up to people and talk to them
What has been your biggest challenge to overcome? Going in the water….In Australia and Thailand I was afraid to go in the water because of the Jelly Fish and possible Shark attacks, but eventually I got over my fear and just went in.
What do you miss about home? To have a home and to feel at home.
What have you learned about yourself? That I am more self confident than I thought and have become more independent.
Favourite new thing? (i.e. food you have tried, skill, tradition, place) Surfing
What advise would you give to other girls wanting to travel? Just do it, don’t think/worry too much. It is easier than you think and it is different when you are here, everything is organised and made easy. Also, don’t pack too much, you won’t need most of the things you think you will.
