If you haven’t checked out day 3 and 4 yet, you can click this link: Part 2. Day 5 I really wanted to see the view of Tokyo. Once I sat down at the coffee bar of my hostel at the beginning of the afternoon, I got to know a new solo traveler named Hana (which I eventually hung out with a lot during this trip, and joined me to Shinjuku.

For those who have not yet read the first travel diary of my solo trip, click on this link: Part 1 – The 2nd morning that I woke up in Tokyo I would meet up with a friend of mine (Arisa), which I, like Anna, know for at least 5 years already. Both today and tomorrow, I would not be alone during this officially solo trip. We walked from Shibuya to Harajuku because we planned to explore that part this day. Arisa would take me to some cool parts in Tokyo. [Read more…]
I really enjoy writing about my travel experiences and sharing photos with you. Perhaps this will inspire you to make that solo (dream) trip anyway. I would like to show you my travel diary to create an image about how I have experienced this solo trip. The very moment that I type this 1st piece, I’m on my way to Tokyo on my first intercontinental flight. After 7 years, the moment is there that I fly to this destination, something that has been a dream for years but now comes true – 9 days to Tokyo, solo. [Read more…]
I had 5 days off at work as a flight attendant and once again I wanted to take the opportunity to travel.
One of my friends was working abroad again for a couple of months so I decided to plan a mini trip on my own to visit her at Palma de Mallorca – so technically this is, just like my trip to Lanzarote to that same friend, not a completely solo trip. [Read more…]
This is the second part of my travel report to Porto. If you have not read the first part yet, you can click on the link here. After the nice lunch we went for a walk through many nice streets of Porto and took a lot of pictures of all the beautiful things that Porto had to offer and that we encountered at that moment. We got to know each other quite well during this trip. [Read more…]
The second day in Lisbon started with a breakfast in my hostel with a lovely view of the city. Today, I would probably get new roommates. For this day, I booked a nice cycling tour with a Dutch guy that lives in Lisbon for years. An hour or two after getting up, I went to the destination by foot. After half an hour of walking many meters of unknown streets and high stairs, I arrived at the place where it would start. Together with two others, the cycling tour could begin. [Read more…]
In this post, I am going to share my second (well.. first completely alone) solo travel experience with you. Maybe this gives you that extra push to go on a mini solo trip on your own, or maybe you will just like reading about it. I’d love to share my most lovely pictures and experiences of this beautiful city with you. I hope you will like it! Lisbon is a city that I find absolutely fantastic and love to visit over and over again. The city is near the Tagus (Tejo) River which ends in the sea. It is a city with beautiful buildings, lovely atmosphere and always plenty to do. [Read more…]
