Hello, my name is Sonja and I’m facing the biggest adventure of my life: I quit my job, sublet my apartment and have my backpack about packed. I give up my everyday life and all securities to fulfill my dream. A trip around the world – with backpack, camera, ukulele and quite some courage. Here I put my thoughts and experiences into words and take you with me on my journey around the world.

As a communication manager, I lived for my profession. For two years, I kept giving one hundred percent and more, knowingly going to my limits and beyond. By the end of 2018, it was clear: I need a break. Urgently. And breaks are best filled with favorite pastimes.

Travels, photos, mindfulness

I want to meet foreign countries, cultures and people, learn new languages and songs from all over the world, capture experiences in pictures and texts, meet the world with mindfulness and share it. I look forward to bustling cities and remote beaches, visits to farms and mountain villages, alone and with yet unknown companions. And I’m looking forward to having time for myself and my life, as time is a rare in everyday life. Because I’m a life lover and connoisseur, a finding-happiness-in-the-little-things person and chocolate junkie, mindfulness friend and yogini – with a great love for photography and self-made music.

I am grateful and happy to be able to experience such a journey – and excited and doubtful, with a mixture of anticipation and fear, too. I like to share my experiences with you – in small stories from the big world.
