There is nothing as enjoyable and fulfilling as traveling in my life. It does not matter if it’s a day-trip across the border, a three-week vacation to another country or an internship on a different continent. This passion has been passed down from my mother, who encouraged us to explore the world and broaden our horizon.
To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries. – Aldous Huxley
No matter how often you visit a country, you will always have the chance to see something new, get new impression and change your view about the place and you will travel back home, with a suitcase full of memories and something inside you will have changed, even if just a little, because for me, travel touches my heart.
Living in the heart of Europe has this awesome benefit, that there are so many countries that you can simply visit for a weekend, just by hopping into a car or on a plane and within a couple hours you can travel to nearly every European country; and there are quite a few.
I would love to be able to say one day that I have set foot in all the countries in the world (one of my siblings always jokes, that when I am old and grey and don’t have to work anymore, I will pull out a map and be like: “Which country haven’t I been to yet? Let’s go there today”), but why wait till I’m old – the world is there to experience it. but let’s start small: I will try to reach my goal of visiting 100 countries.
