  1. Wonderful and inspiring blog, Tim! Thanks a lot for following us on Twitter! Travel safe and keep up your great work!!

  2. Bin gerade auf deinen Blog gestoßen. Lustig – bei mir ist es ganz ähnlich :-) Ich blogge und mache seit diesem Jahr nebenbei das JAZ. Allerdings in München. LG Franzi

    • Hi Franzi. Danke für deine Nachricht. Dein Blog ist richtig cool!!! Gute Idee Sport mit Reisen zu verbinden. Ich bin auch gerne immer sportlich aktiv beim reisen und eigentlich immer in Bewegung :) Ich gehe ab März auf Strecke, kann es kaum erwarten :) Liebe Grüße aus Mainz, Tim

      • Lieben Dank! Das Kompliment kann ich direkt zurückgeben – dein Blog gefällt mir wirklich sehr, sehr gut. Schade, dass du in Frankfurt fliegst :-) Ich bin gerade in Sao Paulo und nächsten Monat gehts noch nach D.C. und Peking. Bin mal gespannt, was dann den Sommer über so alles kommt :-) Werde deinen Blog auf jeden Fall weiter verfolgen. LG

        • Danke :) Ja, das ist wirklich schade. Es wäre bestimmt cool mal zusammen zu fliegen :) Nach Sao Paulo würde ich auch mal gerne. Ich fliege nächste Woche nach Dubai und Rioooo :) Wir bleiben auf jeden Fall in Kontakt :) Liebe Grüße, Tim

    You sound incredibly adventurous with a real lust for life. I look forward to reading about all your adventures Tim!

  4. Carol says:

    You have the perfect job then that will allow you to visit the world and live your dream! Congratulations on finding your passion very early in life, preparing for it well, and getting it!

  5. So interesting. I often think Europe has a better handle on University than the US does. Those are things I’d never had a chance to study. Mind you I loved my history degree, but it isn’t nearly applicable to the real world. Sounds like you’ve had some amazing journey’s already. Love the Augustine quote. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Lois Alter Mark says:

    So great to learn more about you! I’m glad you’re getting to live your dream, and I’m looking forward to following your adventures!

  7. Bethaney says:

    Hey Tim. Nice to “meet” you virtually! Look forward to reading your blog.

  8. Teacaketravels says:

    I wholeheartedly agree that you need to go ahead and experience things first hand yourself. When people tell me about a place, I politely decline to look at their photos actually >< I want to see that place with my own eyes :) It's great to find out more about you and I can't wait to read your stories! Go Tim!

    • That’s so true! I also actually never read guide books or plan anything beforehand. I prefer just walking around and getting lost. That’s in my opinion the best way to experience a new place.

  9. Bethany Dickey says:

    Love hearing a summary of all the places you’ve been!

  10. Well done on your travels & studies!
    I belive you have a great job to travel more & more!

  11. Sophie R says:

    Great about page. Sounds like you’ve been on an adventure for the past couple of years and it looks like you’ve found the perfect job which allows you to travel!

  12. Thank you :) Yes I have … and there are still so many places I want to visit :)

  13. Alana says:

    Hey Tim! First, I have to say I love the look and layout of your blog, nicely done! Second, what a cool story you have. You’ve really made travel your life! Looking forward to reading through your site!

  14. Zen Zhou says:

    Your travels sound amazing and so inspiring! Can't wait to do the interview :)


  16. Which airline do you fly for? That sounds like the dream job!

  17. Nathalie Uribe says:

    Hello, I am Colombian and what great you do, my dream is to do the same as you and make videos and share my experience, greetings.

    Hi team,
    My name is Bernard. I am representing ebrand contractor, a digital marketing company based in Australia. One of our clients will like to advertise on your website through sponsored posts/articles. Is this something you do.
    If yes, how much you charge per post/article. And are there any other conditions? Do you have any other website aside this? If yes, kindly send us the list so we can have a look and see if other websites qualify for our campaigns.
    Thanks in advance
