I took this picture back in 2015 when I visited a good friend that I had met back in Canada, and who lived in Utrecht at the time, to celebrate New Years in Amsterdam. It was also the first time I traveled with my then new DSLR.
Whenever I go somewhere new, one of the first things I get is a printed map. I know that I could do anything I can do with that, and even more, on a digital map, but I somehow like the touch and feel of old school printed maps.
I love traveling. And doing so as a university student brings some perks with it. So here is why you should travel why you still go to university.
When traveling in Germany, you have many options. You can drive, fly, take the bus or ride a train. If you are lucky enough to get a ride share (like a BlaBlaCar), that is always an option to consider just from a price point.
If you’re unlucky, but you still want to save money, you have two, maybe three options.
As much as I love traveling, I hate uncertainty. Mostly when it comes to accommodation.
Of course it might feel intriguing to just eat what you’re used to when going abroad. Like McDonald’s or something like that.
But trust me. You’re missing out on a whole new world of tastes. You now people who never leave their hometown, because they’re afraid of change? That’s pretty much the same. Just in another colour. And isn’t the purpose of traveling to learn something new? To broaden your horizon?
Back in 2015, the first thing I saw of New York City was Penn Station. I have to say, I really don’t liked Penn Station. It was dark, it was ugly and it was dirty.
When I came to Times Square for the first time, my mind changed. I felt like a part of the city. The lights made me feel small and accomplished at the same time. I just love the vibe of a big city. And New York has it’s very own magic. Anything can happen in the city that never sleeps.
