Traveling – I do it my way

I have been blogging since 2013, as a solo adventurer, cyclist, and professional photographer.

From 2013 to 2019, I rode my bicycle around the world, solo.
To date, I have visited 101 countries – 59 of which by bicycle.
In 2020, I turned to long-distance hiking for a change of pace.

I love learning about life in foreign lands, immersing myself in my travel destinations by approaching their cultures with respect. Given my adventurous and open nature, I swiftly connect with locals, no matter where I am.

I reject racism, aim never to judge, and write honestly about all I experience.

Nature is my turf: discovering and enjoying our planet’s natural wonders, firsthand, is my most fervent passion.

Environmental protection is essential to me!


My professional career

Having fallen in love with photography at an early age, my experience with it has been extensive. At first, I was self-taught, moving on to complete a German-style apprenticeship.

Eventually, I built a two-decade-long career as a camerawoman for the German broadcast station, ZDF.

Please peruse my photo gallery.
Rest assured that I will only ever deliver professional work.

My equipment

As a long-term traveler, my life transpires within the confines of a tent and under the blanket of a starry sky.

If possible, I cook on a fire or with a small stove. I put my equipment to the test consistently, because I spend an overwhelming amount of my time in the great outdoors, exploring the world’s remotest regions.

I select gear carefully, valuing the quality and durability against such pivotal attributes as weight, environmental impact, and price.

I am happy to test your product, but I reserve the right to rate it honestly or use it only after testing has convinced me of the excellent quality.

I shall only ever publish honest evaluation as this is what my readers expect and to which, by now, they have become accustomed.

The trust of my readers is important to me.


What distinguishes me

Traveling alone as a woman, especially in an adventurous manner, is a rarity. This is the primary reason my extensive readership is international.

Many of my followers have been shadowing my travels for years and their opinion, as well as their trust, I hold with the utmost respect.

My readers and followers are not only interested in my experiences but also my photography!



My readership has grown consistently over the years. The most coveted topics are adventure, bike travel, long-term hiking, outdoor life, culture, women traveling solo, and photography.

I am blogging in German and English and I am very well known among bike travelers, worldwide.

In 2017, I was also the bicycle ambassador for the German state Baden-Württemberg for the “200 years bicycle” anniversary.
