My life in Taiwan – compared to Taiwanese dramas

It’s Single’s day soon (11th November or 11/11 – where all the 1’s represent how freaking lonely we all are), therefore I thought about writing an uplifting post about Taiwanese love dramas. Well, they aren’t really the best thing to watch when you are feeling lonely or are with the wrong person on Single’s Day […]

The feeling of belonging somewhere (or nowhere)

Since I am abroad, the question “Where are you from” has been asked quite a number of times – and it’s totally fine. It’s even okay when people look at me like I am a straight liar when I answer that I am German. Also, it’s okay to be confused, Germans usually don’t look like […]

Friendships and relationships with a due date

To start with, the headline might be misleading because in my opinion, if a friendship or relationship is genuine and based on mutual trust and love, it does not have a “due date”. I have met a number of people who have friends or met their partner during a job or study abroad and they […]

Visit Jakarta in 2 days (and how safe is it to travel there as a girl)?

Jakarta

Last month, my friend Mette and I traveled to Jakarta with no expectations or actual idea what to do in the city. We googled around and found some things to do and see but just a little information about how Jakarta is really like. And on top of that, we got some messages from people, […]

The dilemma of living abroad

I remember when I was 19, I left my parent’s home for a gap year as soon as I finished high school. The stereotype work and travel adventure in Australia, with a few months backpacking in South East Asia (or in my case suitcasing since I can’t carry a backpack). When I came back from […]

My favourite spots in Beijing (architecture version)

5 weeks in Beijing went by so crazy fast and before I knew, I was on a plane going to my next destination, leaving China with lots of great memories and experiences 🙂 Beijing is beautiful – especially when you are like me, and in love with architecture and interesting buildings. There aren’t many things […]

What I like about China (and why I might miss it in Denmark)

Hej everyone! It’s been almost 3 weeks since I left gray Copenhagen for Beijing. I never had the chance to really get to know the Chinese lifestyle before. China and its business culture is included in the curriculum of my studies and I spent a vacation in Shanghai before – but still when I got on […]

4 wonderful spots to discover Copenhagen from above

Tonight I will fly to China and until January, I will study in China and Taiwan, and travel around South East Asia. I am really happy to get the chance to see new countries, improve my Chinese language and let’s be honest, spend some real summer days at the beach (instead of the 2 weeks […]

For me, praying in a temple or pagoda is like the feeling when tossing a coin mid-air. I'm not religious but do believe in and respect a greater power and ancestorworship. I believe that one can mask true wishes and desires infront of others and convince them otherwise. But when you close your eyes and are alone with your thoughts and praying for something, you can't run and hide from what you're really longing for. So what is it for you? Success, fame, money, furtune? Health? Or love? Maybe a certain person? I was a bit surprised and overwhelmed when I found out what I truly wished for when I visited this temple - but I am very grateful to know now 💙 (Also this is not related to my post 2 days ago when I jokingly held up a pretty guy's picture on my phone. That was another temple we visited and he wasn't my sudden revelation🤓)
Time to start sightseeing in Taipei 🙈 less than 2 months left until I am back in Denmark
We went sightseeing today and also visited the Lovers Temple. Usually you should go there with your partner, so I took Godfrey Gao with me 😃 setting the right #husbandgoals 📸 PC: @laughtraveleat
Be a miracle 😎 also, dont hike up spiky hills with flip flops
Fill your life with memories, not things. Fill the voids we all have with adventures and create new memories 💙

Siquijor 🌴🇵🇭 I enjoyed this view with a cucumber lemonade, which sounds strange but it was one of the best drinks I had in the Philippines

Aren't sunsets something magical?
