Hello Stranger and Welcome on My Travel Journal-Blog,

What is this page about? Well, fair question! This blog is inspired by my travel journals which I love to carry with me when I am travelling. Therefore, it is about telling stories, learning about cultures, dipping into adventures with me and creating some Wanderlust. But also to get some travel tips and find inspiration in journaling. Still questions? Then read more here

Though get a drink, feel comfy and I hope I can bring you to some other places in this world and share some of my most precious memories with you. 
Thanks for being here. Have fun exploring my blog and reading some stories,

Flo

Streets of Seoul

To me, South Korea and Seoul itself are full of new experiences, differences in culture, language script, food and even in everyday life. Itโ€™s a country full of opposites. New-age Korea with all of its high modern technic versus the old traditional Korea with all of its palaces and Hanbok โ€“ This post is about my first week as an exchange student in Seoul.

New blog post: Between mangas and sex-shops in Akihabara (2021-03-07)

Akihabara probably sums up what people imagine when they talk about modern and crazy Japanese pop culture. If I think back I remember dolls, toys, cosplay, lots of vending machines, sex-shops, video games, maid cafรฉs, electronic goods, anime and of course mangas. This time I will bring you with me and show you this very unique neighbourhood in Tokyo.

What is it like to spend a night in a Jjimjilbang? I have given it a try, together with Lea from France and Xiao Ying from China โ€“ two of my fellow students from Seoul. We got to know the differences to conventional saunas, slapped eggs on our heads and made a โ€œsheep headโ€.

New blog post: Why do volunteering (2020-11-28)

This article might be a bit different from my other ones โ€“ today I want to talk about voluntary work (ergo working without getting paid) and why it can be a great opportunity for you. (Just to clarify Iโ€™m more talking about clubs, associations and societies โ€“ not about an official gap year). In this blog post, I want to share my personal experiences with you. And I would like to introduce you to my student association AEGEE โ€“ at least this part is about travelling, I promise.
