Travelling doesn’t fulfill me…

…anymore. To read this might be hard to believe as I know a lot of you reading this probably dream of leaving their home country and go travelling longterm or even fulltime. But hear me out: I’ve been there. Some years ago all I wanted was to leave Germany and travel the world, so I totally get it. And I still love travelling, it’s a beautiful thing to do. It broadens your horizon, sparks creativity, makes you understand different people and cultures better, might teach you how lucky and privileged you actually are and of course you get to see… Read More »Travelling doesn’t fulfill me…

Australia Coast Road Trip

After 1,5 years in Australia I finally made it out of the bush and went for a roadtrip along the coast for 3 weeks. I started off driving from my little outback town in Queensland down to Princetown in Victoria which alone took me 2 days as Australia is such a big country and the distances are crazy! I spent one night sleeping in my car in a caravan park in a cute little town called Hillston, NSW. My car is actually pretty comfortable and cozy because it’s big enough to fully stretch out and have enough room, I really… Read More »Australia Coast Road Trip

Homesick? What I miss about Germany.

When being away from your home country for a long time you’ll always carry a bit of homesickness within your heart, no matter where in the world you are. Of course I can only speak for myself here, maybe others feel completely different. I truly do miss Germany (or just Europe in general) all the time after not having been there for almost 14 months now. This doesn’t mean I’m miserable all day long thinking about how much I miss Germany, I don’t even feel sad about not being in Germany. Yes, sometimes when I look through photos from Germany,… Read More »Homesick? What I miss about Germany.

What farmwork in Western Australia has taught me.

My last days of farmwork in Western Australia have come so I decided to share some of my learnings from this time with you. I’ve had 2 different jobs here. The first one was in the shearing industry, I worked as a rousy in a crutching team which basically means picking up and sorting wool all day long. My second job which I’m still currently in is driving a tractor during seeding season. So here we go.. what farmwork has taught me: It’s never too late to learn something new, it’s possible to work in a job you have no… Read More »What farmwork in Western Australia has taught me.

Life Update – April 2019

On Instagram I asked you what topics you’d be interested to read about on my blog and I got a few people asking me about what I’m doing right now, how long I’m gonna stay in Australia, what the plan is. To be honest, there’s not too much going on right now and I’m pretty sure my life looks a lot more interesting online than it actually is, haha. Anyway, here we go.. Where am I right now? After 4 months in Queensland I flew over to Western Australia end of January and right now I still live in a… Read More »Life Update – April 2019

Outback Australia, an unexpected experience.

I’ve been pushing off writing this blogpost for quite a while now. I really feel like sharing my experience of living in the Australian outback. On the other hand I’m not too sure what to talk about as there isn’t too much happening out here – unless you travel around a lot maybe which I don’t. I feel that there’s been a lot more happening and changing inside of me than around me. So a lot of what I’ve seen and experienced here is quite personal and I don’t want to talk about everything to be completely honest with you.… Read More »Outback Australia, an unexpected experience.
