The best is yet to come - a glimpse into the future

3년 전

My dear Steemians!

As I wrapped up my post series about my journey through southeast Asia last week, it's now time for something new.

However, right now I don't have a lot of spare time and therefore would not be able to introduce you to a new story properly. I'm not a fan of "half-assing" things, so I won't try to make a crappy post just for the sake of posting.
Instead I decided to give you a quick glimpse of what is yet to come! I will be continuing my weekly travel posts until I run out of material - which hopefully will be never ;) - or as right now I am too busy to do it properly.

These are the journeys I want to cover in the coming weeks and months. There will also be smaller posts in between on a irregular basis.

Central America - my first backpacking journey

In the summer of 2016 I made my very first BIG journey. It also happened to by my first time travelling all on my own. I flew there to meet with my good friend @ninolatino who had been working there for a year. When I arrived he still had to work for another two weeks so I used this time to travel around on my own in Guatemala. Exciting destination for a first solo trip! When he finished work we joined our paths and explored Guatemala, Mexico and Belize together for five weeks.

Interrail - exploring Europe by train

Right before I left for Central America, I had spend fours weeks with two other good friends (one of them @gerryk) travelling through Europe by train. We explored France, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. The first two weeks it was just two of us until @gerryk joined us in Amsterdam. It was hugely different from the backpacking journeys I did afterwards, but still amazing. I had not been to nearly any of the Cities we stayed at so there was a lot of great, exciting and new stuff to be experienced.

Last summer I did my first hike all alone. It was a really challenging, and at times thrilling hike. Looking back I greatly underestimated the length and difficulty of my route and would not choose such a path again. This and hopefully many other hikes I will tell you about in the coming months.

Definitely looking forward to it ;)

WOW! Beautiful photos as always. You tell good stories with your photos and words so definitely looking forward to more of your work!

How lucky that you got to see the volcanic eruption. I've never even come close to any sort of eruption or even an eruption site tbh.

Seeing pictures on Google about something one has never experience is one thing. But having someone show pictures and write about their experience behind what it was; what it meant to them; how they felt; It's a whole another experience for the audience.
