Thank you for stopping by! If this is your first time here, welcome! If you are returning for a bunch of new travel tips, welcome back! My name is Ivan and I’m really happy to see you here. For several years I’ve been living and working from the road, but travel addiction started long before that.
I grew up in Dresden, East Germany and never consider myself a travel expert. My first trip abroad happened when I was 13. It was a trip to Ireland. Outside cruises and family trips to Egypt and Turkey, I had no experience in independent traveling. After graduating from the University, I got a job and standard two-week vacation. I wanted to spend that time usefully to see as much as possible in foreign countries. After all, vacation wasn’t only about fun for me, I wanted to learn something new from people and places. My dream was to learn Japanese at that time.
The time and the world do not stand still, however. I felt that I wasn’t satisfied with my job anymore, so I decided to quit. What do you think happened next? Neither my relatives nor my girlfriend welcomed this step, despite the fact that I have been planning it far in advance. I had no other way except to move on. My career as an archivist was over. I started learning new disciplines that I thought would allow me to travel full-time while running this website, as well as stay from 5 to 6 months on the road. After some time I started my first solo trip to Cyprus.
That trip changed my perception of traveling.
