My train arrived in Lake Constance around midday and with only an afternoon to spare, I quickly scanned the list of options for places to visit. There were a myriad of things to do, including a spa called Bodensee-Therme; a boat trip on the lake to see the Old Castle of Meersburg and the Museum [...]

On a visit to Baden-Baden for the Deutscher Medienpreis (German Media Awards), Bill Clinton said; “Baden-Baden is so nice you have to name it twice.” Indeed it is nice. It’s MORE than nice; I don’t think the word does it justice. Located in the Baden Wuttermburg area of Germany at the foothills of the Black Forest, [...]
As our bus driver heads deeper into the Black Forest and we are dropped by the side of the road in what appears to be the middle of nowhere, I think to myself: “Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore!” I look around expecting to see some sort of zip-lining centre, but all I see is [...]
When I think of Germany I always think of cars; Volkswagen, BMW, Porsche…and Mercedes-Benz. My parents have always stuck to German cars because they’re so reliable- my mother has been driving the same Volkswagen Golf for over 15 years!

Last year I experienced my first ever Oktoberfest in Munich, and I loved it so much that this year I went back for round 2. I just couldn’t resist going back. When I went to Oktoberfest for the first time, I vaguely remember standing on a table in the Hacker Festzelt tent on the last [...]
Walking through the streets of Berlin stirs up mixed feelings- on the one hand the city is very modern and could compete with Amsterdam for the title of most liberal city, but on the other hand it has such a tumultuous past. Everywhere you turn, there is evidence of a much darker history. Looking at [...]
Whilst 24 hours isn’t enough time to get fully acquainted with a city, that’s all I the time I had on my recent trip to Germany’s capital city. I arrived in the morning at Circus Hostel and only had one day in Berlin to explore the major sights before getting a bus the following day to Oktoberfest [...]

I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
