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.

Africa was a tough experience for me. It was my first time on the continent. And I visited 10 countries in a bit over 2 months. Boy, there is a lot write about! About Tanzania I have started putting together some posts, all other destinations are coming as soon as possible.
Never miss a new post!

An Onsen is a Japanese style hot spring that should be on every traveler’s bucket list. Visiting an Onsen not only has the health benefits for which they are so popular with the Japanese people, it is also a great place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Japanese hot springs have a long […]
If you have a short layover in Tokyo during your travels you were probably planning on getting a glimpse of Tokyo, one of the biggest metropolis in the world. But what if I told you that you had a much better option if you wanted to experience real Japanese culture much closer to the airport. […]
If you love winter sports like skiing or snowboarding, Japan will be your paradise during the cold winter months from November to April. Japan landscape is 73% mountains and many of them are used as ski resorts in winter. Because Taka loves snowboarding I have started skiing again last year. While I am not any […]
If you happen to be in Japan on February 14th why don’t you have a Valentine’s Day Japan style? In Japan, it’s the ladies who give something to the men on Valentines Day. That something is usually chocolate. You can buy chocolate for Valentine’s Day everywhere in the weeks leading up to the event. You […]
If you look at official information about religion, you will find the Japanese are predominantly Buddhist or Shinto. If you ask me, I would say the Japanese are not religious at all, at least not in the way it is generally understood. They take from all religions and celebrate all religious holidays in their own […]
It was about time. After having really nice experiences while hosting some lovely people using Couchsurfing we finally had our first experience being on the receiving end of Couchsurfing hospitality. We were guests at a fellow Couchsurfers place. And I would like to share with you how it works and what to expect. If you […]
One of the highlights during our 3 days in Taipei was the food tour by Taipei Eats we participated in. You would think after eating continuously for almost two days we wouldn’t really have needed this food tour, but you are wrong. Even though we had been eating everything we could get our hands on, […]
For our weekend trip to Hokkaido, we booked the Tokyo-based LCC (Low-Cost Carrier) Vanilla Air. The company is in operation since 2013 and not only connects destinations within Japan conveniently but also east-Asian countries like Taiwan and Vietnam, and also Australia. The name Vanilla Air describes appropriately exactly what to expect. If you consult the online […]
Like many other “western” holidays, for example Valentines Day and Christmas, Halloween in Japan is an experience unique to the country with its own traditions, style and events. Halloween is actually a very recent development in Japan. It probably started with amusement parks like Disney World in Tokyo and Universal Studios Japan in Osaka, that […]
The Japanese are a weird people. Everybody knows that. There are literally thousands of blog posts about all the crazy things you can find in this country. From inventions that make you shake your head and think “Who would need something like this?”, but also weird fashion choices and disturbing game shows. But when it […]
