Shame on me! I almost forgot about the monthly inspirations! Time is passing so, and I am not feeling old saying so as everyone around me seems to experience that in the same way (no matter the age). I guess it’s just because we start to think about Christmas and New-Year’s-eve planning already. So without further introduction here are my monthly favorites of October: Things that have inspired me and that are discussed within the Expat community that I want to share with you.
6 US-Travel ideas for 2019
6 US-Travel ideas for 2019
2018 has been a travel intense year and I can’t recommend the destinations we visited enough. 2019 will be exciting again, including some upcoming solo trips I am pretty happy about. Check out this list for some inspiration!
New York, Williamsburg
What about exploring New York off the beaten track? Sure, the main touristic stops are nice for some pictures but there is nothing better than chilling in Central Park with no agenda or drinking coffee and strolling through second-hand shops in Williamsburg.
Road-trip: California Highway No1
If you are searching for nature in combination with an urban and modern charm California is the place to go. Following the Highway No1 down the coastline is a no-brainer. Just hop in the car and stop wherever you like. Download the free comprehensive guide for a 12-days road trip here.

Arizona: The state for the shoulder seasons
If you are looking for something to do in spring or autumn I can recommend a weekend/week trip to Arizona and the southern part of Utah. The colors won’t disappoint you. Find my travel guide with my favorite stops here.
Yellowstone National Park: Everything in one place
I have been to several Nationalparks since we moved to the US and I am in love with many of them. However, if you have just one to chose from I can highly recommend the Yellowstone Nationalpark. Although it’s visited by millions of tourists each year it is still big enough to find a quiet hiking path. In only one park you will experience very different types of nature and landscapes.
Hawaii - The Big Island
Hawaii will always be trendy – partly because of the amazing lean back vibe and friendliness of the people. Big Island was a positive surprise for me and the perfect island to chose for a first trip. I cannot count the climate zones we went through in just one day. Expect to hike in the snow and swim in the warm water in just one afternoon. You will find my detailed guide here.
Chicago - the charming second city
I hope you will find the time for some exploring this year! Let me know what’s on your bucket list. I am hopping over to Asia again this year and of course, there will also be some more US-travels.

Since I started my adventure of living abroad and even more after diving into the business behind expatriation, I am fascinated by the shift of gender roles after moving abroad. In this blog post, I want to elaborate a bit about my personal experience with the gender inequalities in expatriation and add some interesting resources I found.
Chicago is one of the most exciting towns in the United States – and that is not just my opinion 🙂 Often I get asked about my favorite things to do, my favorite restaurants, bars and places to visit. As I am a fan of free travel guides to downloads I put all my highlights on a one-pager which you can download here. If you are more a person who wants to be convinced with pictures keep on reading. Enjoy the beauty of Chicago and send me a message when you are visiting!
Visualization is a powerful tool that can take your goal setting to the next level. It is a common technique in coaching and I found it to be very useful with my Expat clients.
