A woman’s journey of a thousand miles…

A woman’s journey of a thousand miles…

That’s it. I did it. I officially applied for the most amazing student job ever: a round-the-world trip.

I’d get the chance to travel the world for 4 weeks this summer and blog/vlog about my adventures.

First I had to put together a plan of my whole trip.I decided that if i get the opportunity I’d first visit Israel. I’d fly into Tel-Aviv and of course travel to Jerusalem to see the historic parts of the city. The next destination would be Madagaskar. It’s not a country a lot of people visit but I heard and read a few very interesting things about that island in the Indian Ocean and I believe it’s worth a visit. My next stop would be Singapore. I’ve been there once for 2 days when I was 4 years old. Of course I don’t remember but my parents still mention it sometimes and I believe I’d really like it because the culture is very different from the western culture I live in.
Since I’m a surfer my next stop would be Honolulu, Hawaii. I heard a lot of amazing things about Hawaii and friends who I used to surf with always recommended it. My next destination would be Guatemala. I decided to visit Guatemala because I wanted to have one location on my trip where I can use my Spanish and I’d definitely like to visit the Tikal National Park.
After Guatemala I’d be heading up north to Washington D.C., capitol of the United States of America. Also I’d like to visit the state Virginia, since I’m named after it. My last stop before heading back to Zurich, Switzerland is Toronto where I want to indulge in the Canadian politeness and probably also visit the Niagara Falls.

A big thank you to those who help me live my dream

Sleepless night

You’re never going believe what I am doing right now:

It’s 1 am and I’m planning a round-the-world trip. Yes, yes you read correctly & I know I’ll have to get up for University in less than 5 hours, and I also know I have a road trip booked for this summer but I just received an AMAZING job offer from the travelling agency everyglobe.

They are looking for someone who will travel around the world for one month this summer.  With a budget of 15’000 swiss francs I’d have to blog, write und vlog about it everyday (that’s what I already do, right?)

I just brainstormed some ideas for potential destinations and I’m now putting together a trip and applying for that job as soon as possible.

It might be a bit crazy, reckless even, but there’s still a whole wide world out there to be explored and if this is not the best opportunity I will ever get, I really don’t know.

If any of you know any good apps or programs for trip planning let me know!

Adioooooos and talk to you soon.

“These streets will make you feel brand new, big lights will inspire you, let’s hear it for NEW YORK!”

I can’t believe that after a whole year of travelling I’m going to be on the road (airplane) again tomorrow.
Yes, my bags are packed, I’m sitting in the Starbucks coffee at the lovely Bellevue in Zürich before doing some last minute shopping for my next adventure which will start tomorrow morning. (Shops open at 9 o’clock, so yeah… Starbucks is a good excuse)

Tomorrow morning my whole family and I are leaving Switzerland to spend Christmas and New Year in the lovely city of New York. Bild

 

I’ve never been to New York before and I am very excited to explore the city and probably also the nightlife scene since I’m turning 21 on Christmas. EXCITING!!! 
Of course I’m also looking forward to doing all the touristy things one can do in New York. I maybe don’t have a boyfriend for a romantic ice skating rink experience at the Rockefeller Center but my sister will do, right? 😉

Just recently I was looking through the pictures of my travels and I realized how much I miss all the people, the cities, the adventures and the excitement. Just a year ago my time in the City of Angels was over and I was in Santiago de Chile, spending Christmas with my chilean family; and that’s an experience I will definitely never forget. Last week is sent them some Christmas presents, which mainly consist of chocolate because what else should I send them from Switzerland?

I’m done with 5 of my 6 final exams, the last one i will have to take in January. Half of them went well and the rest was just like playing poker. Especially my business administration exam was an hours of guessing and calculating how many points I needed to pass the exam (yes, it really was that bad). 

I’m off doing some last minute shopping.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! All the best, stay healthy and happy!
