Unforgettable Tour Memory

Oktoberfest 2017! :) Celebrating my 2nd birthday in Prague after spending my real birthday stuck on the coach in a snow blizzard... Fight night in the beach bar of our hostel in Berlin. (there were no casualties...) Picnic under the Eiffel tower and watching the fireworks on Bastille Day. Skiing in Norway on New Year's Day 2019.

Best Travel Tip

Enjoy every day to the fullest! Don't stress about small things that can go wrong. You're travelling, not everything will go as planned. Just make the most of every place! And if you didn't finish ticking off all the boxes on your must-do list, that gives you an excuse to come back one day. ;)
