Where I Travelled In 2016

“We have nothing to lose and a world to see.“

Big Sur California USA

Looking back I can safely say that 2016 was one of the most exciting years - from my 18th birthday, to my graduation, to the start of my study abroad adventure and lots of amazing trips and travels, which I want to share with you today. I can’t remember any other year where I got so many amazing opportunities to pack my suitcase and go on vacation as in 2016, and obviously I have so many pictures that are just too lovely to not showcase them here on my blog.

Mallorca 
After our graduation in mid June, my best friend and I headed on a rather fabulous all-inclusive girls trip to Can Picafort, Mallorca. We stayed at the Hotel & Spa Ferrer Janeiro in Can Picafort, which my best friend recommended as she already stayed there some years ago, and it was so lovely - great rooms, perfect location (not even 5 minute walk to the beach), delicious food, friendly employees and all of that for a really good price. After our stressful exam time we just needed relaxation and a little bit of luxury, which we absolutely got on this wonderful trip - we were reading, tanning, swimming, sleeping, relaxing and of course eating all day by the pool, in the evening we took some nice photos by the beach and we also made a gorgeous day trip on a catamaran to see some of the beautiful island. On this note I really have to say that Mallorca is so stunningly mesmerising - I feel like it’s image of the “Ballermann-Party-Alcohol“ island is not doing justice to the wonderful nature and the true beauty of this place.

Hamburg 
In the beginning of August I then went on another girls trip with some of my best friends from school to lovely Hamburg. We stayed at the Generator Hostel, which is fairly cheap considering it is right in the centre of Hamburg, next to the main train station and not even 5 minutes walk from the main shopping street. Before that trip I have already been to Hamburg once and I loved it so much that I wanted to go back there so badly. Hamburg simply has the perfect mixture of everything - the charming harbour, the modern city, the historical “Speicherstadt“, really good food and not to forget - the incredibly magical musicals! When you get the chance to come to Hamburg, please invest your money in a musical ticket - I promise you, you will not regret it. Last time when I was in Hamburg I went to “The Lion King“ and this time to “Aladdin“. Let me tell you guys, it was m a g i c a l - goosebumps and tears all the way through the shows, because it was simply stunning.

 If you have been following my blog for a bit longer or just have clicked around you might have probably spotted my two blogposts I have written about our vacation in the USA - they are about the breathtaking Yosemite National Park and glamorous Los Angeles. If you haven’t read them yet, I would definitely suggest you to check them out because they have some pretty amazing insider tips as well as stunning photography in them. However, in the end of August my parents and I headed on a 3-week adventure to sunny California visiting San Francisco, Yosemite National park, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Monterey and Santa Cruz. And I think the photos absolutely speak for themselves - it was incredible.

Scotland 
 Only 4 days after we came back from our travels through the USA, I set out on the most scary yet exciting trip I had so far - my journey to my study abroad in Scotland. I have been here for 3 months now and although I haven’t seen a lot of Scotland yet, what I have seen, I have loved a lot. Contrary to most people, I think the British architecture with all its grey terraced houses and chimneys is quite nice - probably because it reminds me so much of Harry Potter. I also absolutely adore how Aberdeen is by the ocean and I only have to take a 30 minute walk to chill by the beach. I was also mesmerised my the beauty of Scotland's capital Edinburgh, which we visited on a day trip in Christmas time. I’m very excited to explore more of Scotland in 2017 as my Pinterest travel board is packed with Scottish travel destinations, each looking absolutely fantastic and picturesque. 


 Where have you travelled in 2016? What are your travel plans for 2017?
