Monthly Update – February

It’s almost spring and I’m one month into my internship and only two months away from my trip to Italy and Japan. I’ve had a rough start this year, trying to figure out what I should do after graduation meanwhile I’m dealing with anxiety and depression and trying to get better. It’s a horrible feeling to watch time fly as you are trying your best to engage yourself, desperatly, into anything, and trying not to get stuck in the comfort of planning a trip.

I’m lucky enough to have my own space where I can breathe, and loved ones that make me laugh, and the curiousity to explore the world. Now I just have to find my way back to a place of excitement, strenght and motivation, and I do feel like every day brings me closer to it.

Budapest Adventures 2016 – Day Three

Here is the third part (and third day) of me and my friend Sarah’s trip to Budapest. Watch as we explore vintage shops and chill by the thermal baths in the sun! You can read about the trip here and if you want to watch the first part of the series you can find it here, and the second part here.

Budapest Adventures 2016 – Day Two

Here is the second part (and the second day) of me and my friend Sarah’s trip to Budapest last summer! We bought a whole lot of tasty things at Central Market Hall and had a picnic in the sun at the top of Gellért Hill! The view was amazing (as I’m sure you can tell)!

You can read more about the trip here and see the first part of the series here.

Budapest Adventures 2016 – Day One

So it pains me to tell you that I probably shot hours worth of material on my trip to Budapest last summer. Having never done a travel vlog before I got the brilliant (terrible) idea to just put it all together into one massive video (instead of making several shorter ones divided by the days we spent there). I can, without a doubt, call this project one of my biggest project disasters and I really had to just ignore it for months before I could get back into it and have fun with it again. (And gladly, getting back into editing actually made me nostalgic and happy.)

With that being said – I can finally bring you the very first part (day one) of me and my friend Sarah’s trip to Budapest last summer. We had travelled since 2 am and were both hungry and tired by the time we arrived at the airport, but we got to cuddle fluffy cats and explore the beautiful Andrassy Street before we went to bed in our airbnb apartment later that night.

Youtube Travel Inspiration – Japan (Part 1)

I don’t really know why, but I’m the kind of person who will wake up one morning with a sudden and intense desire to go some place specific in the world. I had never been tempted to go to Japan before, but suddenly one day I just realised that I have to go. Usually when I have decided on where I want to go, I just begin to absorb all the information and inspiration I can to the point where I lose track of time (and there is nothing I love more than obsessing over a place I’m going to even of it’s months in advance).

While I’m a part of many travel related groups on facebook, I can’t help but being a little uncomfortable when people write things like “I have been in Thailand now for three days and I was wondering if you have any advice on fun things to do here?” simply because that’s just not the kind of traveller I am. Half the fun for me when it comes to travelling is getting inspired before a trip and youtube is a great source when it comes to travel inspiration. Here are my current favorite youtube channels covering Japan.
