The Pony Express in Nevada - Are You brave Enough?

The Pony Express Nevada – Are You brave Enough?

This post was paid for. Here’s a question for you: Where in the USA is the loneliest road according to Time Life Magazine (and that for the 30th year)? And what held the USA together in the 19th century when west and east were still pretty much divided by huge areas of mountains and deserts? […]

Where to go and what to see in Bryce Canyon National Park

Why You Should Not Be Missing Out on Bryce Canyon

This post was paid for. Hold on a second as I am fetching some candles for a very special upcoming birthday party. This August, the National Park Service of the USA turns 100! And what would America be without its amazing parks and dedicated people to help preserve nature, culture and heritage. So a big […]

Best San Diego Museums

Where to find the best Cultural Activities in San Diego

With 348 museums, San Diego is firmly positioned as the fourth museum city in the USA and thus it is not surprising to find many cultural activities in San Diego. Seeing this, I simply had to have a look and make my stay a very culture-centric one. Having a received a museum pass by the […]

Grand Canyon in all its glory

How not to Miss the Grand Canyon’s Spectacular Colours

This post was sponsored. I was at the Grand Canyon and had only 24 hours to explore its unreal beauty and what did I do? I laid down for five minutes and woke up half an hour before sunset – a must see at the Gran Canyon. I raced from bus to bus, asking each […]

Ghost Tours in New Orleans

Seriously Spooked by Ghost Tours in New Orleans

This post was sponsored. I imagined standing right there. In the middle of the street, frozen in disbelief, cold from the shock from hearing what had transpired in this house. The house that had long been a goal of mine to visit – to see and be seen. A house that held the most lavish […]

How to Make the Most in Houston on a Budget and in Two Days

So, I was told Houston would be boring. Just a big city with no character. As always, such a bleak painting did not hold me back. There is always beauty to be found if you look close enough and I am a connoisseur of the sublime. With Houston, however, it turned out to not be […]

Travelling the USA by Bus – A Daring Adventure of 10 Cities in 30 Days

Do you know what I cannot stand about travel in the USA? The public transport. Or the lack thereof. New Zealand wasn’t a prime example either but at least it wasn’t so big. What is a solo traveller to do when leaving the driving licence at home but having driving experience that amounts to zero […]

How to Succeed at Your First TBEX as a Blogger

I can’t say I collected the most business cards but the people that I exchanged glossy paper with were ones that I had a great time with and loved to get to know a little better than just through casual small talk. My first TBEX was a great experience for me and the very first […]

All Hail Halloween – Get Your Creep On

Halloween is an event I have developed a slight obsession over. You see, we don’t celebrate it back home in Germany. Nowadays, some clever kids are making their rounds to go trick or treating. Little greedy buggers. I’m jealous. I wish I was a greedy little bugger with a wicked costume.

The Ultimate Cheesesteak Tasting Tour with Philly on Segway

What exactly is a cheesesteak? It sounds like there would be a whole lot of processed cheese on a big fat steak. Someone else said it sounded like fried cheese. It is neither, my friends. What it is is a sandwich filled with slices of beef, topped with onions and your choice of cheese, which […]

Haunted in Philadelphia before Halloween

The windows behind me were creaking. It was windstill outside. The restaurant was about to close and no one was in sight. I was practically alone. All I wanted was to eat a traditional corn chowder such as Washington ate during his lifetime. But not just anywhere, but exactly where he had eaten. Too bad […]

Say Hi to HI USA Hostels and a Different Way to Travel

“Do you not feel lonely?” I get asked this question a lot. And I mean a lot. But seriously how can I ever be alone when I meet so many fellow travellers and friends along the way of my journey. And you should know that I am a big introvert. Sometimes way too much for […]

How to Make the Most out of Your Stay in New York City on a Budget

Yellow cabs dotting the traffic down below in-between red and white lights that become a big blur when you squeeze your eyes just a little and lift them towards the horizon for the real Big Apple scene and its iconic skyscrapers of lower Manhattan and Lady Liberty standing proudly in the midst of the Hudson. […]

No Way You Are not Seeing Broadway’s Phantom of the Opera and STOMP in NYC

The wonderful sparkle of the night, excitement in the air and tickets waving back and forth in your hands – welcome to the Great White Way, better known as Broadway! It’s a little world of its own that manages to tell stories and capture audiences through up-close performances and dazzling glamour, whisking you away in […]
