About Me

Do you want to know more about the travel addicted me and the author behind this blog? Then you found the right page. Let me introduce myself and tell you everything about me you may or may not want to know… 

My name is Florentina, I am a 90s kid, born and raised in Germany and a Berlin-based travel blogger. But to be honest: no one ever calls me by my full name since it is quite long, not really common (at least in Germany) and some people may really have some trouble remembering it – so, you can call me Flo :).

Just a few random facts about me:

1) I was actually named after the character Florentyna from Jeffrey Archer’s book “The prodigal daughter” from 1982. Florentyna is an US-American young woman with Polish roots who fights to become the first female president of the United States. My mom read the book when she was pregnant with me and since she loved the strongness of this woman she decided to throw all name ideas overboard she had so far and named me after this strong character.  

2) As far as I can remember (and our family’s photo books show) the first country I travelled to – after serval holidays in Germany – was Switzerland in 1997. It followed a lot of family vacations in Italy, Austria, Greece, Croatia, and school exchanges to France.

3) I studied theatre and media science in Germany.

What else can I tell you about me? Let me see…  I love travelling, writing and taking photos as well as videos – and this blog is the try to combine all of it. If you want to know more about the background story of my blog click here.
