A few years ago I quit my office job in Germany and travelled through New Zealand and Australia for 1,5 years. During this time I learned a lot about myself and I absolutely loved my life overseas. I decided to never give up on my dreams and always fight for what I believe in. When I got back home I was looking for a job to work with animals (my goal and dream for a long time). I was lucky and since then I work for a beautiful animal sanctuary in Salzburg. The mountains, the animals and the lakes in this area make me very happy.
Why do you travel and look for adventures?
I don’t want to live according to the norm. I love to find new places, experience new cultures, and meet new people all over the world. I like myself best when I’m out exploring and it makes me really happy to see our planet. I want to live my life to the fullest. Every day.
What kind of adventures do you look for when you travel?
I’m into everything. I like adventures that pushes my adrenaline but also like the peace and quiet. I guess it has to be a good mix of both. My biggest adventure is travelling by myself. Everything else falls into place anyway. And I am very spontaneous.
What’s your go-to travel hack?
Don’t be scared to get out of your comfort zone. It might be scary at first but I promise once you open your heart and trust yourself you will accomplish the greatest things. Go for it and never give up!
Got any gear you can’t travel without?
What destination are you eager to go back to?
How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?
Always listen to yourself. If you don’t have a good feeling about something – don’t do it. I have done a few wild things like hitchhiking through New Zealand for example. People would always call me crazy because I was only 22 years old and all by myself. But as long as you are feeling good with what you are doing and are always careful and thoughtful about everything you will be fine. Trust your gut!
What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local?
Couchsurfing (App): It’s a great way to meet locals. People all over the world offer their ‘couch’ to travellers to experience different cultures and bring the travel vibes into their home. This for me is the best way to experiene a destination like a local and most of them would always show you around. Also a great way to make friends everywhere in the world.
What’s your favourite word in another language?
When and where are you next travelling?
As soon as possible I will book a flight and travel back to Australia!
