After living in Japan for more than 3 years, I have a lot to say about the country. By clicking on the Japan picture below you will be taken to a wide variety of Japan related blog posts, including itineraries, local travel tips and amazing experiences you can have in the land of the rising sun.
From Japan, I did a couple of trips to other Asian countries over the years, including Vietnam and Taiwan. And I created just a few posts about my experiences there. Once I visit again, I will have more to share with you for sure.
From December 2018 to spring 2019 I will explore other parts of Asia extensively, including Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia. I will update you about my experiences via blog posts over time. But if you want to know what I am up to in real time, you can subscribe to my email newsletter.
It is kind of surprising that I don’t have more content on Europe, being German and everything. But I just find all the other destinations that I visit so much more fascinating that I don’t really feel like writing much about destinations in Europe.
So far I have covered just a couple of places and experiences in the UK (because it is by far my favorite European country) and I am planning on always creating more content. If only I had the time to work on everything I want to.

The cheapest way to get around Zanzibar is public transport, locally called Dala dala. If it’s your first time riding a Dala dala in Zanzibar there is a lot you can do wrong. This guide will let you learn from my mistakes and save you a lot of money.
How much do you know about spices like cinnamon, vanilla, pepper and cloves? Much less than you thought, I’m sure. If you happen to visit the beautiful island of Zanzibar during your trip around the world make sure to participate in a spice tour and learn about spices like never before.
When I arrived in Oxford on a sunny afternoon at the beginning of August my Servas host, Deirdre sat down with me and explained Oxford to me using a little paper tourist map of all the Oxford colleges. She explained to me that Oxford is basically a crossroads from which the city grew and that […]
Are you planning a trip to Scotland and don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, when it was time to plan my one week Scotland road trip I was also a little bit lost. No wonder, there is so much to see and do in Scotland and one week will never be enough time to […]
After exploring London (and there were a lot of things to do there) I finally got to see more of England. And my first stop was Bath, just a couple of hours drive from the bustling capital lies this beautiful and historic town. Of all destinations in England, I think I liked Bath most (closely […]
Over the last week, I have been traveling through the most scenic regions in England, including Bath, Oxford, and the Cotswolds. Of course, I have taken lots of beautiful pictures, especially because the weather was fantastic for the whole time I was there. And the best of these pictures are going to find their way […]
Our first stop on our trip around the world was Hong Kong. Why? Because it was the cheapest destination from Nagoya, and because we both had never been there. In 5 days we explored quite a bit of this fascinating country/city, and in this post, I would like to share with you the things to […]
Our first stop on our trip around the world was Hong Kong. I had never been there even though it is only a 4-hour flight away from Japan and it can be reached quite cheaply using LCCs like Hong Kong Express. And the first thing I wanted to do in Hong Kong was a walking […]
My first and only day trip to Nikko was 3 years ago. It was my first day trip with Taka and the first time I got out of Tokyo after arriving there 2 months earlier to work at a Japanese IT consulting company. The trip has been a fond memory ever since, and I feel […]
The first clear drink I came across in Japan was Yogurina a clear yogurt drink. I thought it was strange to have a bottle that looks like water but tastes like yogurt, but it got me curious (which is probably the whole point of making a yogurt drink look like water). So I bought a […]
