Australia – The time of my life! – Part 1

By on 29. November 2016

Australia has been incredible for me! Besides home, it is my favourite country, even though I have seen many other beautiful places already. The lessons I have learned there, the friends I made, the nature I have seen, the partys I rocked, the cities I have been to, the fun and the trips I had… absolutely unbelieveble!

Australia – The time of my life! – Part 1

Different faces

There are many reasons why I love Australia, but the most important one might be, that this country has so many faces, as you can also see on my Youtube channel/ video. By faces I mean, that there is so much to discover and it is very diverse. The people, the landscapes, the cities, the wildlife and and and… I will talk about that in many toher different blog posts. There is so much, you just can not put that into one 🙂

Obvioulsy I can not deny the fact that Australia was also so special for me, because it was the first big trip (besides Chile), that was longer than 2 month and I had to do and go through everything on my own. Many other travellers will remember the start, day or moment were they realized they had to handle everything on their own… in a different country! It is frightening, but when you do everything with an open heart & an open mind and you do not always stay with people from your home country, than I guarantee, that you will have an awesome time!

Life changing stuff

For me, Australia changed my life completely. Especially from the way I see and look at literally everything. If you travel in a proper way (from my point of view) – I explain that here – you will eventually get that feeling of pure freedoom, happiness and relief! Do not get me wrong, not every day is great – read more here. There are gonna be bad times as well, but when you look back at your trips you will some day definitely say “ **** yeah, that was an amazing time“ 🙂

You learn so many lessons – read more here –  and it will be a completely different life from what you know back home, doing the things you always do, day in day out. Everyone, who has done something similiar knows what I mean… and everyone, who has not yet, will experience that eventually when they start travelling with an open heart!

The highlights of Australia

There have been many highlights in Australia. Unfortunately I have not experienced the west coast, so I can not tell you anything about it apart from that I have heard, that it is suppose to be really beautiful and not overloaded with backpackers. Besides that I have seen all the known hot spots of Australia AND some more onknown places as well. Of course everyone has his/her own secret places, that they consider as „Must See“, but I mean all the spots, that every traveller wants to see. You can read something about every single highlight in an upcoming single post 😉

Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is a wonderful road along the coastline of Victoria towards South Australia. It has a length of about 246 km and many really pretty spots along the way like Bells Beach, the 12 Apostles, Apollo bay, the lighthouse at Lorne and much more. It is perfect for a road trip and you can easily spend one or two weeks there. The Great Ocean Road is also really good for surfing. The nature and wildlife there is incredible. You will find many kangaroos, koalas, etc. It is definitely a place where I could see myself living in the future!

Melbourne – the capitol of Victoria

Melbourne is a phenomenal city! I had a great time there and met many awesome people. In my opinion it is the best city I have been to so far besides home. And I do not say that, because it was the first place I stayed at when I started my trip in Australia. There is a reason why it always has been under the top 3 of the most livable cities in the world in the last decade. This city has plenty of things to do. Its is very vibrant, arty and great place for young people. Besides that it is very green, has cool beaches and there is always something special happening in this city.

The buzzin city of Sydney

Sydney is crazy! I have to admit, that I only spent a week there, but as far as I can say, it is an extraordinary city. A really cool place and the largest city in Australia. There will always be a discrepancy of whether Melbourne or Sydney is the better city. I would have to go for Melbourne, but that is obviously because I have not spent enough time in Sydney. From what I have experienced it is still pretty awesome. The Harbour bridge, the Opera house, Bondi beach, the botanic garden, Mainly beach… the list of cool places seems endless.

Blue Mountains National Park

The first well known national park that I have seen in Australia is the Blue Mountains National Park. It lies in the northwest of Sydney and is an UNESCO World Heritage area. It really is a beautiful national park with stunning views. The special thing about it is that, when it is misty and the temperature starts to rise, than the water condenses and it looks like the park shines blue.

That is where the park has its name from. There are many cool spots and myths about this park. You can experience them yourself on a guided tour. Many companies offer these tours, which are pretty fun. I have done one as well and I highly recommand it.

Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise is buzzin! I went there on my trip up the east coast of Australia. I spent a couple days there and enjoyed it a lot. It is a good place to surf and to party. The nightlife is great. What I liked the most about Surfers Paradies is the panorama along the beach. Countless skyscrapers next to an endless beach. Definetely something you should see when you travel Australia.

All of these places are great, but there is endless more to see…

  • Admiring the beauty of Morocco's National Parks... 😍🌴
.
One thing I learned again on my trip through this country is that being able to visit places like this is a true privilege
.
I have seen many many poor people in Morocco
.
Actually the poorest of the poorest
.
I even had to give a 10 year old kid some food that I had left in my car, while he wanted to sell me some souvenirs to get money for his family 😕
.
This would never ever happen where I come from. It's actually illegal ☝
.
But there, people have to do it
.
This was one of many situations in Morocco that taught me about something about GRATITUDE again
.
Being grateful is so important, especially for people from privileged countries
.
We all tend to forget what kind of great lifes we actually have, because things like a child labour or example, doesn't even effect us in any way
.
Most of us can actually be more than grateful for the lifes we live and the countries we are able to travel because of the money we make❗
.
Every time I travel a new country I realize this more and more
.
And I am highly thankful for those lessons each and every time, because you really only learn them when you visit poor foreign places
.
The best thing about these lessons is that you learn to be able to put things into perspective... 🙏
.
So thanks to the beauty of Morocco
.
Thanks to the awesome people I met
.
And thanks for all the lessons I have learned again... 👌

  • Enjoying a bit of sunlight after coming back home to Hamburg 😊
.
I just came back from Morocco today and I can only highly recommend to visit this country ❗
.
From all of the places I have visited so far, Morocco is definitely on top of my list for many reasons
.
It is no suprise that it is getting more and more popular every year
.
Nevertheless I have to say that it feels good to be back home 💙
.
I really didn't want to leave Morocco though... 😟
.
I would have loved to travel it even more, but I know I will definitely come back
.
The good thing is, there is always a next destination to travel to... 😉
.
TELL ME: Anyone having any recommendations where to travel next???

  • Riding into the desert's sunset... 🐫😀
.
Seeing the Sahara was a dream of mine for a long long time
.
When I finally realized it, I could not believe it
.
And I still can't... 🙈
.
Riding a camel for a couple hours, sleeping in a proper berber tent, having dinner and a jam session with the locals as well as watching the sunrise and the sunset was more than I ever expected 😍
.
So what does that show you ???
.
Simply that dreams come true❗
.
If you really believe in them, they will be reality one day
.
Just keep moving towards them all the time and you'll eventually arrive where you always wanted to be 💪

  • So in love view with that top view of the Dades Gorge 😍
.
And this is only the tip of iceberg... 👌
.
The drive to this place was absolutely phenomenal
.
I literally had to stop 6 or 7 times within 30 minutes to takes pictures, because the views just absolutely amazed me 👍
.
On the way there I also picked up a moroccan local as well as a german traveller, that I spent the last three days with
.
The east of the atlas mountains is absolutely worth a trip and I can only highly recommend to come here 😊
.
I also already learned something again from the locals
.
ALL of them are incredibly friendly and they always try to help you with everything you ask them, even if they can barley speak one word of English
.
And if they can't explain properly, they take you to a friend or they try to communicate with hands and feet until you understand them 😄
.
Such a lovely bunch of people ❤
.
The kindess thry have and love they spread is Definetely something to adopt!
.

  • How wonderful are the Ouzoud waterfalls??? 😍
.
I really start to fall in love with Morocco slowly❗
.
At first I had to a couple task to master but now I like this country more and more
.
Everywhere you go, you see extraordinary landscapes with stunning sights that simply take your breath away 👌
.
The ouzoud waterfalls are one of them
.
They rise up to about 110m and they are just a short trip away from the Marrakesh
.
Definitely worth a trip!
.
I am only here since 6 days and I can already highly recommend to make this one of your top destinations to travel to in 2018 👍
.
TELL ME: Does anyone know some good spots to visit along the southern coastline? 😄

  • Lost in the narrow alleys of Marrakesh 😍
.
I had a couple problems during my first two days in Morocco
.
When I arrived at the airport, the police took my drone away, because apparently you are not allowed to takes drones to this country
.
I also wasn't able to get a working navigation for the car that I have rented, so I had to sort it out in the city centre of Marrakesh, which wasn't that easy to be honest
.
Additionally I was not really prepared for the cold nights 😅
.
So it was quite a rough start
.
Nevertheless I have to say that I really like this Morocco so far❗
.
The food is great, during the day it's always sunny, the architecture is amazing and the people are incredibly friendly 😃
.
Today the REAL tour starts
.
I will leave Marrakesh and visit the highest waterfalls of Morocco in Ouzoud 😁
.
Sooo excited!
.
TELL ME: Do you have any other recommendations on what to see and do in Morocco???
.
Drop them in the comments! 😃
