A serious case of Wanderlust

Does anyone else get this feeling, the need to immediately buy a flight ticket? The need to hop on a plane straight away and set off to explore a new city? The feeling that you have been waiting long enough now to go on another trip (after you got back from your last one a week ago, cough cough) ? No, no one, is it just me and some of my crazy friends?
Don´t get me wrong I love to get cozy and watch Netflix in bed every once in a while, but sometimes I see these cool places in the movie or series I am watching and I get this feeling again.

I just love travelling and I thought for today´s post, so close to the end of the year, it would be nice to appreciate all the trips I have done this year. Often I get myself caught up in new adventures and deciding which countries I want to visit next that I forget to think enough about the great trips I´ve already done so far (or I just get sad they are over.)





Let´s appreciate our “old” adventures even more. I went on some really great trips and adventures in 2017 .





My trips 2017:
1. Innsbruck (Austria); 2. Obertauern (Austria); 3.Bali (Indonesia); 4.Vienna (Austria); 5.Cologne (Germany); 6.L├╝beck (Germany); 7.London (United Kingdom); 8.Brandnertal (Austria); 9.Aldeburgh (United Kingdom); 10.Brighton and Hove (United Kingdom) 

Most memorable trip: I have to say my weekend trip to London was the most memorable one this year. There are two, maybe three, reasons that made it so memorable. First of all, the friend I went with…we became good friends in Australia when we both stayed in Sydney for a while. I am very thankful to have met her there and for being my travelbuddy again and again ;) Second reason, the concert we went to. Now that story started in Australia as well. On my last night in Sydney said friend told me Shawn Mendes is in town. We both weren´t extremely big fans and didn´t have tickets to the concert of course, but when we got the chance to “meet” Shawn out on the streets, we quickly turned into fangirls for the next couple of days. Quiet some time later we decided, we had to go to a concert now and instead of just going to the one near our hometowns, we decided it was more fun to travel to one of the most exciting cities for it. (My friend and I are both in love with London.) In addition to that or maybe the third reason, I had never been to a proper concert in an arena before and I think London´s sold out O2 Arena set a pretty good venue for my first big concert. It was simply an amazing trip.










The trip I learned the most from: That is a bit harder to decide. It is either my trip to Bali or my latest trip to London. In Indonesia I learned how different cultures can be and how people can live without the luxury we have in Europe, but during my longer-stay in London as an Au-pair I learned a lot about myself or what is important to me. I learned that perfection doesn´t exist, it is okay to make mistakes and to feel down sometimes. Even more important I understand how much my friends and my family mean to me and that you should never take them for granted.






I already planned a trip to France for the beginning of 2018 and I am excited for what´s to come next year. Until then I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

  1. I too feel wanderlust, all the time. I know that I should just be happy to explore the new area that I live (Germany). But now that I am so close to some other areas(France, Belgium, Netherlands, England........)I want to see them all, NOW.

  4. I get wanderlust all the time too! It seems to calm down when I am living abroad (maybe because every weekend feels like a holiday!?)
