    Update: the road to freedom (and … where’s Anto?)

    It has been awfully quiet on We12travel lately but that wasn’t without reason. The upcoming couple of months are going to be all about some major changes I’m making to my life and the first one actually took place yesterday, when I moved out of my apartment in the city center. I’ve lived here with a lot of joy over the past six months but it was time to go. This was my first step on the road freedom!   Moving did not quite go as planned. Normally I tend to prepare well for these kind of things but unfortunately, things didn’t quite turn out like that. About a week…

    Why I won’t be hiking the Pacific Crest Trail this year…

    It’s a Sunday evening and I finally opened up my laptop again after a while. Life has changed quite a bit over the past couple of months and today was a perfect Lazy Sunday. I visited my mom for Mother’s Day this morning and other than that, I haven’t done anything. I love it.

I’ve written quite a few blogs about this, for example how to make the most out of Pinterest or Things I’ve learned after 2 years of blogging. A question I occasionally get from readers is where I find the time. To blog, to hike, go be outdoors and read a pile of books.

    Personal: never travel without saying goodbye to your loved ones

    This post was written last summer but I’ve only found the courage to publish it now… an update can be found at the bottom.   As I’m writing this, I’ve opened up my Macbook for the first time in over a week. It’s been eight months since I went without my computer for that long. I’m currently on the way home from Iceland, a bit earlier than planned. Today I’m going to talk about something that I have almost never read a blog about before. And trust me, I read a lot of blogs. Today’s blog is about family. And what it means to them when you travel.   For…
