HEY THERE TRAVEL-LOVERS, ADVENTURE-SEEKERS, AND WANDERLUSTERS,
My name is Denise. I am a recent university graduate and have always had a passion for travels, cultures, and languages. I am not a full-time traveler but I try to explore as much as I can alongside my job. In 2015 I embarked on my biggest journey yet – I moved to Singapore for one year as an exchange student. I have been fascinated by South East Asia ever since. Until now I have visited 29 countries all over the world but my goal is to see at least 75% of all the countries before I die. I want to explore different cultures, learn about traditions, and have conversations with people from all over the world.
When I first started travelling solo, I didn’t like it. I am an introverted person, so just talking to strangers was never my thing but that quickly changed after I lived by myself in Singapore far far away from my home country Germany. Now I love solo travel. It’s such a freeing form of traveling which gives you the opportunity to do whatever you want to do whenever you want to do it. You don’t need to explain or ask anyone when you want to get up in the morning, or if you just want to chill by the pool for a day. Over the years, I have met some great people during my solo travels that have turned into friends and I couldn’t be more happy about it. There is still so much more to explore and with this blog, I want to take you on my adventures on this beautiful earth, that we call our home. Enjoy!
