"Travelling means - experience yourself" assilein's Profile

Live your dreams...

Twenty years from now you will be more dissappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbour.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Discover. -- Mark Twain --

Travelling means feeling at home in any country


I'm Astrid from southern Germany and as you might have guessed, my greatest pleasure is travelling.

My favorites in travelling are asian countries, I like spicy food and the asian mindset.

Also our southern Europe neighbours have a mentality which I really admire.
Therefore I like travelling to southern Europe (Portugal, Greece, Italy, Spain), besides there are plenty of cultural highlights.

Please enjoy my personal travel pages, if you have any questions or comments regarding one (or more) of the pages, do not hesitate to leave a message!


My dream came true...

Beginning this year we, my boyfriend and I, went on a round-the-world trip - 4 and a half month of travelling, enjoying different people, contries and landscapes, not thinking about work....

As planned, we went first to Hongkong, then to New Zealand where we made a two months roundtrip by campervan, furhter on to Tahiti and the polynesien islands, afterwards to easter island and via LA back home...
After travelling a lot in these contries we needed some kind of time out and went to Greece just relaxing and chatting with friends.

We had a fabulous time in all countries, met lovely and relaxed people, had a good feeling all the time - all in all - we had the best time in our live!

To build all the relevant travelpages will take some time - as we shared our experiences online please check meanwhile for further details our homepage: www.my-symi.eu (unfortunatly only available in german) or contact me on assilein101@yahoo.de


Next Plans

July 2006 - Symi again (18 days)

Already booked the flights - really looking forward, going back to this lovely islands and the charming people. I'm getting homesick when thinking about Symi....

August 2006 - Venice (4 days)

Due to very cheap flights we will visit Venice - it's a long time since I have last been there. Although it's the first time to Venice for my boyfriend. Probably it's going to be very hot but I hope that it won't be so crouded in August!

Next Year 2007 - 4 months without working ;-)

next year Febrary - June (4 months)

The big happening!!!
We will travel to New Zealand and the south pacific islands for about 3 months - afterwards we will go to Symi for another 1 or 1 and a half months. So much is left to do and time is just speeding....
Now we have to make a decision if we take a return flight to New Zealand or if I live my dream and buy a Round the World ticket.
Just wait and see.....

Edit: Yippee!!! We bought the round the world ticket - going from Germany via London to Hongkong and further on to Auckland, back via Papetee and LA to Munich! I can't wait till February!!!
