Can you hear the Sound of Music song after reading the title of this blog? Yes? You’re welcome.
Soon I will start traveling again and there is a post coming up about what my plans are, but before we look to the future, I would like to stop for a second and appreciate my past self for the amazing things she wrote! I spent all afternoon scrolling through my old posts, and I love them!
When you travel you really get back to the basics of life. Figuring out new things, meeting new people, being on your own… There is a lot of wisdom in that, and I am so glad I shared this wisdom when I was abroad.
I know there will be a lot of different people reading my blog from now on, as it’s been a few years. And not only have some of my friends changed, there is also a lot of other people that know my name and like to follow what I do (on a small scale, I am in no way a travel influencer XD), so welcome!
I thought it would be nice to quickly recap the traveling I did five years ago, by sharing five of my favorite posts on the blog so far.
- My experiences at the 10 day silent meditation retreat.
It’s quite a long read, but it’s very funny – if I do say so myself. Not talking to people for 10 days does something to you hahaha!
- How I ended up in the back of a cop car on New Years Eve.
This is one of those everything-seems-to-go-wrong-but-it-was-meant-that-way stories.
- Ups and downs of a mountain (and travel).
This describes a very deep low, and the silver lining that came after.
- Daily life in Jakarta.
I lived here for five months to do an internship, and in this blog post I tell you more about the day to day!
- What to expect from a bus ride from Vietnam to Cambodia.
This was at the time my worst travel experience, but in hindsight a hilarious memory.
I’d recommend one or more of the above, but if – like me – you cannot get enough, here are a few more that are a bit shorter, and you may also enjoy:
- Running into an old friend.
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD. The greatest coincidence ever.
- How I became an instant millionaire by traveling.
I was big on clickbait-like titles and I will not apologise for it.
- Extreme highs and extreme lows.
Yes. Again. That’s traveling for ya.
- The power of communication (and languages).
This is about how your personality changes based on how fluent you are in a language.
- Creating your own normal
A motivational blog about saying ‘screw you’ to societal norms ;)
