I am a german dude, who loves travelling and exciting adventures from bottom of his heart. I want to inspire other people to get out of their comfort zone and travel the world. Plus I really want to show how much you can learn from traveling and what kind of personal development as a human being comes along with it!

  • When finding the right pose for a picture seems a little to complicated 😂
.
When I went to the Philippines with @sndr.ebn , we put an island hopping tour around El Nido on top of the list of things to do ☝
.
And that was a great decision, because it was one the best things I ever did
.
We got recommended to do the El Nido island hopping tour A & C combination, because it is suppose to be the best
.
And it was. The tour absolutely blew my mind❗
.
Plus it taught me something valuable again, which is to always stay open minded, talk to people and follow there tips 👌
.
This is not only important for travelling, but also for life in general
.
Only if you stay open minded, you will talk to other people
.
Only if you talk to other people, you will get great tips
.
And getting tips from others is a great thing
.
Because these tips will help you improve yourself and sometimes lead to situations that create invaluable memories, which last forever ⏳
.
P.s. if you to make an amazing memory for your girl/ boyfriend that lasts forever, bring them to the lost islands near El Nido... 😉

  • How beautiful is this beach in New Zealand??? 😍
.
It's not just the fact that I had the chance to visit this amazing place in the south of New Zealand that makes me very grateful
.
It's also the lesson I got to learn from visiting it, which I am still very thankful for until this day 🙏
.
To travel through New Zealand nonstop without having to work was only possible, because I worked my ass off a couple months prior 👊
.
It led me to saving quite a big amount of money that I could use for travelling this wonderful country
.
So what was the lesson?
.
Pretty simple: hard work always pays off
.
Just keep pushing and you'll reach your goals. Sometimes you reach it quickly, sometimes it takes longer, but just keep moving step by step and you'll hit the target eventually 💪

  • It's impossible not love the castles of Copenhagen, right? 😍🏰
.
It was one of the main reasons why liked this city so much 👌
.
One beautiful castle after another. It almost felt like I am in a fairy tale... 😇😅
.
Already so looking forward to explore Marrakesh in Marocco in two weeks 🙌
.
Anyone having any tips on what to do and see??? .

  • There is something about visiting the most beautiful destinations like Maya Bay that is hard to describe 😄
.
For me it sometimes feels pretty surreal to stay at a place that is considered to be one of the best on the planet
.
I always have to pinch myself when this happens 😅
.
And then I think about all the people who don't have the privilege, the opportunity or the money do the same
.
It's always the same situation and it teaches me something very valuable time and time again
.
And that is BEING GRATEFUL !
.
Being grateful for what you have
.
Being grateful for where you come from
.
Being grateful for the opportunities you have
.
Being grateful for the dreams you can fullfill
.
Being grateful for who you are
.
And being grateful for the chances that you have in life 🙏
.
Because many many people don't have that and in my opinion it's an obligation to get the best out your life you possibly can, even if it's only for the reason alone that others can't ☝
.
So always try to chase your wildest dreams, just like I try to at the end of January in Marocco 😊
.
Anyone having any suggestions on what to do???
.

  • How great is the coastline of Dalmatia in Croatia ??? 😍😊
.
Driving down this wonderful part of a very unique country taught me something quite valuable ☝
.
For me, this landscape was so beautiful that I could not resist to stop at almost every parking bay to take photographs
.
I made picture after picture after picture
.
It took a looong time
.
Finally I got some great once that I can put on my wall, in my books and on my website
.
So what did that teach me now?
.
It taught me that you need to be patient in everything that you do and which is of importance to you ⏳
.
GREAT things need time❗
.
You don't move forward in any area of life, if you switch from one thing to another all the time
.
Choose something, work on it and stick to it
.
Eventually something brilliant will be the outcome
. 
Just like this picture is to me... 😊

  • Roy's Peak is definitely one of the greatest spots I have ever been at... 🌏
.
For me, it's also one of the best examples of how many beautiful places are out there, ready to be explored
.
In my relatively short life I have already seen quite a bit of cool destinations 🌐
.
There are some people out there who have seen more (sometimes way more) than I did. But, compared to many other people, I have already seen a fair bit
.
I am NOT saying this to show off!
.
I am saying it, because I want to adress a point ☝
.
To see as much of our beautiful planet as I can, learning about other cultures, getting to know other people, etc. etc. etc... is all one big point on my list of goals in life
.
And I slowly recognize more and more, that the more I strictly keep following these goals and dreams, the more of them I achieve
.
I do, just like most of us, only make small baby steps all the time, but the achievements come eventually ⏳
.
This is why I set some personal goals again this year - travelwise and in personal life - and I hope to inspire others to do the same
.
Off to great 2018... 💪

  • View onto Hamburg's harbour on a lovely day from a "secret" spot 😁
.
There is no other city in my home country that can come up with so many great views
.
Maybe not even any other city in any other country in Europe, even though that would be quite hard to claim
.
Still views like this are one of countless reasons why I love my hometown so much!
.
TELL ME: What is the best thing about your home town??? 😃

  • 2017 is almost over❗
.
It has been a year full of exciting adventures and awesome experiences 🙌
.
But it has also been a year full of ups and downs ⬆⬇
.
Still I learned A LOT, both trough travelling and from my private life
.
I am very thankful for that and especially for all the support I got throughout this year 🙏😘
.
It has been great 💯
.
This picture shows one of the golden moments I'll probably never forget from 2017 - visiting 2.000 year old rice terraces in Batad, Philippines 😍
.
I am already sooo looking forward to all the adventures and adversities ahead in 2018, because .
You can only learn from them
.
They will some day be wonderful memories .
And you ultimately become a better version of yourself
.
For me, the new year has a lot of amazing destinations in store: Marocco, Bavaria, Austria, Italy, Warsaw and hopefully a lot more 😄
.
I wish EVERYONE a healthy start into the New Year and may all your goals and dreams become reality... 💪
.
P.s. don't party to hard tonight 😉
