In just under eight months, I literally travelled around the globe. The main focus, however, was on New Zealand/South Pacific and Central America, respectively.
After having spent more than two weeks back in Austria, I am slowly feeling at home again. I am already looking for a new job, but I still enjoy looking back on my RTW trip (e.g. when leafing through my pictures). Furthermore, I finally know exactly how much I spent while travelling – which was, fortunately, less than anticipated. Continue reading How much is it?
After 26 flights, 42 boat trips, 13 train rides and countless travels in buses and other ground transport (e.g. bicycle, subway, hitch-hiking, rental car or taxi), and travelling almost 62000 km by air, about 1000 km by sea, and probably around 16000 km by land, I have finally returned to Austria.

The actual time difference between Austria and Canada might only be six hours, but as far as nature and the seasons are concerned, it seems more like six weeks to me. Continue reading Time Difference: 6 weeks
I explored the Canadian capital for two days, visiting both the Parliament (and its surroundings) as well as two museums (due to the inclimate weather). Continue reading Tulips from Amsterdam
I am not sure what to think of Toronto. On the one hand, the tourist sights are not that exciting. On the other hand, however, I really enjoyed the "other" (i.e. "everyday-life") Toronto that I was able to explore thanks to being shown around by some friends living here.
