About Me

Hey everyone,

my name is Hanna and I'm a twenty-something currently living in Cologne. I am interested in history, good food and travelling. That's why I chose to make history my profession, cook a lot and try to see as much of the world as I can :-)

I have spend some time recently in Canada (about a year), more specifically in Montreal. My travels took me around Europe and the US but my goal is to see more countries outside this area.

Apart from travelling, I like music from the 1960s and 70s (stuff like Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday), fleamarktes, and writing postcards.
