The journey has ended for now, the time of isolation begins
While I had settled in nicely to my hotel life in Auckland, I was hit with the news that I would be able to relocate on Monday, only a week after my arrival. I was both happy and sad at this prospect, happy because I could continue my journey but sad because I was enjoying my time staying at the hotel and the routine I had managed to build up. The remaining question, where to go? Continue reading “The Travel Diaries – 10. Home, a country in lockdown”→
With my wait in London finally over, it was time to go back to Korea and then onward to NZ. I sure didn’t expect to see myself back in Korea again so soon. I also almost didn’t make it. With Korea’s current restrictions, after arriving I would have to wait 14 days until I could travel again which would mean I wouldn’t be allowed to board my flight leaving a few days after arrival. Luckily with some help from the lovely airport staff and a call to immigration, I was cleared to travel back. Continue reading “The Travel Diaries – 8. Full Circle”→
With my time in Germany spent mostly in isolation, the great escape 2.0 was now about to start with a flight back to London. Luckily my flight out wasn’t cancelled but many flights were and the airport was scaling back many of their flights as well thanks to most of Europe going into lock-down and closing of their boarders. Lucky for me, the UK was still lagging behind everyone, barely.Continue reading “The Travel Diaries – 7. The Great Escape 2.0”→
Trip cancelled, now the second great escape begins
Welcome to Berlin, this was meant to be one of my resting stops mixed with a ton of history in a city well known for many things. I had a ton of exploring planned out, some possible day trips and other things planned. I had a great little Airbnb sorted that was a small apartment to myself. The set up was perfect, but alas, everything went to shit overnight. I woke up that Saturday morning in Hamburg ready to go to Berlin and woke to a world suddenly in chaos. So once I arrived in Berlin, I ended up spending most of my time there trying to cancel my trip, on the phone to airlines and then staying in the apartment avoiding people as much as possible.

A city where you can live your wildest dreams… within reason of course
Welcome to Amsterdam! One of the most carefree cities in the world. A city that doesn’t get hung up on the bullshit and one that was basically founded by entrepreneurs and with the motto, let’s make money! From this, it has grown into one of the the primary cities in the global economy. Now tour guides have mentioned this, and I believe it, it seems in this area of Europe, it rains, a lot, like every other day and of course on arrival, it was raining, oh to be wet… Continue reading “The Travel Diaries – 4.

Beer, Chocolate, Churches and Comics, that’s a hell of a combination!
Welcome to Belgium and the great city of Brussels. Home to Beer and Chocolate! Not exactly a city geared towards healthy eating but that aside, the beer and food was great. Fries and waffles also for the win! Food aside, Brussels is another city with a lot of history and some hidden gems tucked away in a city that plays home to the power of the European union. Continue reading “The Travel Diaries – 3. The Comic City of Brussels”→
Rain, construction, traffic jams and home to the Queen
London! Home to the Royals and a shit ton of history! Like literally, the amount of history in this city is insane. You could spend years here learning all there is to learn about this place but for me, I get just under a week to cram as much in as possible. While I have never been a fan of the Monarch and British Empire for obvious reasons, it is still easy to get swept up in the ‘grandeur’ that is London. Continue reading “The Travel Diaries – 2. The Royal city of London”→
