Hi, my name is Ulrike and I love to travel. I’ve been raised surrounded by books, travel guides, travel memoirs and TV shows about travelling. I have childhood memories of days spent by the beach, randomly learning bits of Norwegian, gutting a fish and of dancing traditional dances on Greek islands. My first big adventure came when I was 16, when I set off to live in New Zealand for a year to go to school at a girls High School and to live with a family there.
That’s not to say that my travel memories are only full of sunshine and happy days. Especially the first 3 months in New Zealand were much closer to hell, than they were to paradise (if you want to know more, read this). But that is all part of the fun, isn’t it? Because things don’t always go as planned and the times where you ended up far from where you started or far from where you ever intended to be, usually make for the best stories. Travel teaches us to let go of plans and expectations and to just go with whatever life has in store for us.
I want to share my stories with you, to give you the courage to live your own adventures. #ShareYourJourney
