15 Things to do in Spring – Spring Bucket List

Hey everyone,

today I have a rather unusual post for this blog. Ever since I started going to a school with a quarter system, I started thinking more about my goals for that quarter and the corresponding season. So today I wanted to share some of my goals and ideas with you. Happy Spring!

  1. Go camping: It’s finally getting warmer and I am excited for plenty of outdoor activites. I am not the biggest camping pro out there but I do get excited about short weekend camping trips. I actually have two of those planned in the near future.
  2. Read in the park: I love reading and I set a quite ambitious reading goal for this year (see my reading list), so I am hoping to get some outside reading time in this spring. I also always have to read a bunch for school/ work and that is always a lot more fun if it can be done outside.
  3. Bike tour and ice cream: My bike is fixed and I have a long list of ice cream places I want to try in Santa Cruz and surrounding towns. Combining bike tours with some rewarding ice cream afterwards is one of my favorite combinations from my childhood.
  4. Picnic on the beach: I already had one picnic on the beach this year. On the dog beach, to be specific. Picnics are cheap, fun, and can involve an almost unlimited amount of people.

The US National Parks – a bucket list

Hi everyone,

some of my favorite things about the US is the huge number of National Parks. In my opinion, they are taken care of so well, they always make for a good road trip, and the variety of ecosystems and landscapes in the parks never ceases to amaze me. As the National Park Service is celebrating its 100th birthday this year (this week to be exact), I thought it was only appropriate that I told you about the National Parks that are on my bucket list. Well, to be honest, after I got an annual pass for all National Parks for my birthday (greatest gift ever!!), I pretty much put all 58 parks on my list (see infographic below). Talking about all of them in detail would probably be way too much for one blog post. Therefore I proudly present you my top 10 US National Parks:

100 Things to do in Berlin – Berlin Bucket List

Hi everyone,
since school started already for me, I am back in Berlin now. I have a love-hate relationship with this city. The winters are horrible, the summers are awesome, and it is always stressful for me. In order to turn this love-hate relationship into a love-love relationship and to make the most of my (probably) last year in this beautiful city, I decided to come up with a Berlin bucket list. Some of the things are already checked off, but I wanted to share them with you anyways. Maybe this list is helpful for any Berlin bound travelers. Enjoy!
