since I am in the process of moving, I just thought I’d share a little project of mine to cover one of my empty walls. It is pretty easy and it was fun to do. On a side note, the pictures I used are not my own, I found them on the Internet. But I thought they were pretty and would look really good in my room.
Things you’ll need:
Now it’s time to get creative!
And here is the result. I still have to hang them up, though!
Have you ever just wanted to just pack your things and go? Leave everything behind? Experience new cultures? Are you sick of your normal day at home? Do you love meeting new people and most importantly to you enjoy visiting new places and just relaxing whilst travelling through the most beautiful nature?
If the answers to those questions is yes, then I wouldn’t even hesitate to tell you to just go and do it!
But wait, even though backpacking itself is quite self-explanatory, there are some things you need to take care of before going. Most of them are very basic, but they are, who would have thought, the most important ones as well.
Since this going to be a series of different posts, covering different aspects of backpacking I’m firstly going to start talking about chosing the right destination. Or are there already more than one?
For some people this might be very easy, but if you are more like me, the decision can be quite hard. Good thing that we don’t have to see everything we want at once.
There might be different aspects to think of before leaving the country. Some of them are safety matters other might concern the development of the country you are going to. For me one important aspect was getting as far away from my home country as possible. That way I could narrow it down to either Australia or New Zealand.I do think that the good old pro and contra list is a good way to examine your travel destination/s
So here’s the reason why we chose New Zealand:
it’s a small country
it’s nature is simply stunning
there are activities (everything from skydiving, bungee jumping down to whale watching and caving) and hikes there
even just driving down a simple road can be so fascinating
no dangerous animals
really nice and generous people
some things can be quite expansive especially compared to Asia
the flight from Germany is really long
As you can see my cons are not bad, I even have to admit that I didn’t mind the long flight at all. But I mean that’s why I loved my stay in New Zealand so much. It was a good travel destination for a person like me.
I can see that you found your way to my little spot of creativity on the Internet. Feel free to check everything out. But please keep in mind that I’m still just starting off and that this page is currently in it’s very first stage of being build.
Okay, at this point you are probably wondering who I am and what this whole blog is all about, anyway. So let me try to give you a short introduction to myself. I am a german girl who finished High School about a year ago. Since I wasn’t to sure what I wanted to do with my life, me and a friend of mine decided to go to New Zealand to work and travel.
To put it in a nutshell I had the time of my life there. During that period of time, I had a small travelling blog for my friends and family but since I nearly never had good wi-fi and I was only travelling with my phone it was really hard for me to keep it updated. Furthermore I got a lot of questions about backpacking itself. So I just thought why not create a new blog talking about my experiences with backpacking, working abroad and the whole living out of a backpack thing.
But since travelling isn’t the only thing I am interested in I thought it would be cool to blog about photograhy and interesting artitecture as well. Also I am in the process of moving out to start studying psychology soon. So if you guys are interested in that as well, I’m going to keep you updated.
