About Me

The last 10 years of my life have been mainly dedicated to traveling.
Last year I graduated from college in England and moved to Graz in Austria to live with my boyfriend. This love story actually also relates to traveling as we met on a bus going from Mexico to Guatemala in 2014!

I've been writing a travel/ food/ lifestyle blog since many years. It's both my hobby and sometimes job as I co-operate with different brands or tourism boards. It has opened many opportunities for me, including traveling to different destinations but unfortunately it's still not my main occupation.

I enjoy listening to people's stories, learning about cultures and different views.
I'm absolutely in love with food and trying new things so one of the most important elements of my travels is getting to know the local cuisine.
Photography is my next great interest, I take mostly digital pictures but also like to play with film photography from time to time.
Sport used to be a very important part of my life when I was a teenager and I still enjoy many disciplines, especially water and boardsports.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'd dreamed to learn surfing so after two years of university I took a year off and decided to go to Central America. I had a very low budget but managed to spent there five months. I bought a surfboard in Mexico and spent some time living and working at a vegan/vegetarian hostel in Puerto Escondido on the Pacific coast. Surfing was in my everyday routine and when it was time to leave Mexico I traveled with the board to El Salvador, Guatemala and Costa Rica catching more waves along the way. The dream came true and I absolutely loved it!

Teach, Learn, Share

Basically I'm open to anything I haven't tried yet.
I can cook for you or teach you to cook some meals. I cal slso share some photography tips. And if you're visiting Austria, I can offer you my couch :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I really enjoy feeding people so cooking a meal would be my top skill to offer to my host!
