Twipper of the Week: Yvonne from Just Travelous.

unnamed

Current city: Berlin, Germany

Age: 35

What makes you interesting: I think the most interesting thing about me is that I am me. Like with every other person in this world there’s just one of my kind. I am a very open-minded person, I love to meet new people and hear the stories they have to tell. I love traveling solo without talking to anyone, just to emerge into nature and have time to talk to myself. I am extroverted and introverted at the same time. I love being an adventurer but in the same time I’m a chicken. I do things because my inner child wants me to do it, not because I’m super brave. Joss Whedon is my god and I absolutely eat dessert first.

Total countries visited: 40

Most magical place on Earth: My sofa. Just kidding, or am I? Besides my sofa in Berlin I’m a huge fan of Brandenburg, the state which surrounds Berlin. It’s a hidden gem and it’s one of the most beautiful places in Germany. Check out my blog post to see why I find Brandenburg the most magical place on earth! http://www.justtravelous.com/en/2014/07/brandenburg-germany/

What does “travel” mean to you: I think the most important thing in life is to find out what makes you happy and do this as often as you can. For me, it’s traveling by making people happy with my stories from the road and inspire them to do the same. Life needs to be lived and filled with things which makes you happy. In the end no one wants to say, “If I only…” but rather “Hell, yeah, what a ride!”

Where and when were you the most culture shocked: Can I say Munich? Urgh, I really don’t like this city.

What people say when they travel with me: “You must be kidding” is actually a sentence I hear often. I’m game for everything and nothing. That’s what my friends like about me, they know I’m totally into doing weird stuff and that they also can count on me when they just want to chill in our hotel room and watch TV shows.

What is the furthest northern, eastern, western, and southern point you have traveled: Northern is Norway. Eastern is Indonesia. Western is California and southern is South Africa.

Next travel destination: Thailand in March to go diving and enjoying some beach time.
