Why Liège? | Day 51

When people go to Belgium, they go to Brussels or perhaps Bruge, but there I was on a train to Liège. Who goes this city while backpacking Europe? This girl. You’re probably wondering why Liège was even on my itinerary? I’ve got three reasons: waffles, frites and beer. And that’s exactly what I got. I had… Continue reading Why Liège? | Day 51

Because I Cannes | Day 44

After a week of unbearable heat and a plethora of mosquitoes bites on my body, an unwanted souvenir I acquired during my week in Italy, I was desperate to get to France. The trip there did not come easy. Failed plans of a rideshare created a day of traveling by train from Monterosso to Cannes on… Continue reading Because I Cannes | Day 44

Cinque Terre | Day 43

My Future Self in Munich | Day 32

There she was, sitting all alone in the largest beer garden in the world, licking her fingers with only a glass of beer and food to keep her company. I watched an old lady having lunch by herself in Hirschgarten, realizing she was mirroring me. I laughed to myself thinking, there’s my future self: forever… Continue reading My Future Self in Munich | Day 32

Lost in Leipzig | Day 27

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Leipzig is a little town south of Berlin that is full of hidden treasures like my favorite beer, the only reason I ended up here (I’ll get to the beer traveling posts eventually). I started the day with a Polish family and a German friend by using BlaBlaCar from Berlin to Leipzig, met a friend as soon… Continue reading Lost in Leipzig | Day 27
