How did your passion for travel get started?
I’ve always been passionate and very curious about seeing the whole world. When I was 14, I really did my first trip having a buddy to the USA. Once I was 15, I determined that I wanted to do an exchange year at New Zealand and after living there for a year, my enthusiasm for travel became an essential part of my nature and life.
Just how many days/weeks are you travel in any given year? What are the kinds of places you like to go to?
When I get the opportunity to, I always travel. Different places and countries reside in , therefore to be able to see them, I already need to travel. Back in 2018 and 2017, I moved traveling the world for a travel blogger exploring more of Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. Now with a fulltime job, I have traveled to Brazil in February for a few months and do micro-adventures about every second weekend. To me, traveling means being inquisitive about the world and I also get just as excited as I do with other places and countries, to explore my backyard.
You’re currently living in Frankfort, Germany.
Why is Frankfort, or even Germany Generally, such a fantastic travel destination? When they visit, what should individuals do?
Frankfurt is among those cities that many individuals go to a transit, but it has so many sides to it, it is multicultural and has lots of background. Thus, when going to Frankfurt, there’s 3 things I would recommend: 1) Don’t pick lodging near the major train station. It’s still somewhat dodgy rather than a location, Although this part of town is getting better. Because there’s great public transport you may reach the train station readily from anywhere in the city. 2) Don’t do the mistake and just remain in the city centre, there’s much more to watch such as the old Opera House, acquiring a stroll across the Main, heading up the Dome for a fantastic view or even doing a day excursion to the beautiful Taunus area. 3) And also not to forget: you have to try Frankfurt’s famous green sauce! Germany is an amazing travel destination, with great public transport, excellent food, beautiful character, a great deal of culture, excellent bread + beer also has more to offer than Berlin.
You recently spent a while living. What did you learn or gain from living there? What should people know about New Zealand that they might not expect?
When I was 16 I lived in New Zealand for a year and I returned last year to remain somewhat further. New Zealand is renowned for its hospitality and its breathtaking landscape. Kiwis are extremely friendly and open minded, but you might also tell that they are far away from”the rest of the world”. In Europe, we are very utilised to get accessibility to any food all year around we enjoy public transport or being able to travel fast to some other country and culture. In New Zealand, there’s many people that have never visited a country or experienced another culture from abroad. It makes you realize we are to reside so close to travel destinations that are brand new.
In addition to travel, you passionate about green living. What exactly is alive that is green? Can you talk about some advice on how we can all lead a life that is greener?
My mother has raised me to be aware of my surroundings and about food and resources are. The older I get, the longer my consciousness grew about our obligation to live a more healthy lifestyle and I heard more about the of any aspect in life. In my opinion, I think it is essential to try to be conscious that everything we do, has an impact. We, as a collective, also also as a individual, will make a difference also to keep it lovely and to preserve our fragile ground. Whenever it’s a distance up to 5 hours to the train/bus, ” I don’t fly. But I am sitting on a 9 hour train journey. I always try to emission my flights, but naturally there’s so much more we all can do, starting by bringing your own bag, use a cup and try to be more conscious about each thing in life.
What do you want viewers learn and to profit from the job?
I have an extremely positive mindset and I want my viewers to really feel alive, to be inquisitive, to see the beauty in the little things, wanting to learn and see more, to overcome little fears and also to realize that the significance of travelling is not a number in your bucketlist, but causes you to leave your comfort zone, which makes you develop as a individual and constantly brings significance to your own life. I had to work hard for my life expenses and never had much cash and journeys since I studied for many years. But making journey a priority, saving up money for the excursion is not so challenging. The biggest step is to simply do it. It might sound like a cliche, although not waiting for matters to figuring out itself or for tomorrow, it is ideal to simply go out and simply start and get it done.

I just came back in Amsterdam (I’ve never been before, even though it’s just about 4 hours out of Frankfurt!) And in July I visit Austria for just a break from the hills.
I am passionate about life Yvonne and travel the world.

But I use weekend and every chance to explore more. There is always a way.
