Things to do in Oslo

Hi everyone,
it been a while and I am very sorry about that. I started working in a new research institute in order to write my Master thesis and I have been a little overwhelmed by the crazy hours. But now I am back and ready to ease back into it. I am really excited to tell you about my recent trip to Portugal, but I decided to finish my little Scandinavia series first.
And therefore I’ll proudly present to you my five sightseeing tips for Oslo:

Things to do in Aarhus, Denmark

Hi everyone,

this is the second part of my little Scandinavia feature, where I am telling you all about the trip to Denmark and Norway that I took. The tips and photos from Copenhagen are already up.

My year in travel – 2015

Hi everyone,
as this year is certainly coming to an end, I want to look back for a minute or two and remember all the fun things that I did and discovered this year. Hope you’re joining me on the ride!

4 new and foreign cities, 3 new capitals and 3 new countries. (And so much more.)

I can’t even tell you, which of the trips I found most exciting. They were all awesome and I got to discover new things everywhere. However, my trip through Denmark to Oslo in Norway was special, since I got to meet up with so many of my international friends along the way. Since I have so much to tell you about this trip, I am still working on individual blog posts about each of the cities that I saw. I will, of course, link them here as soon as they’re up. The post about Copenhagen is already up. You can find it here.

One year after my return from SF

Hey everyone,

I wrote this blog post about three months ago when I was officially back in Germany for one year already. I originally wanted to start my blog with this post, but then decided to start with the article that I wrote right after I came back. Now I decided to finally post it before it gets too old to actually matter. Enjoy!
