It’s been 270 days or 9 months since I started my trip in Canada and so far I have spent nearly 13.000 €. I will actually take a break from traveling now for a couple of reasons, but have a lot of material left to keep you guys busy for a while – no worries 🙂

Today is the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I quit my job, said good bye to friends and family in both Frankfurt and London and just arrived in Newfoundland, East Canada, starting my trip around the world for about three years.
