live slow, love nature, be adventurous


Hey there and welcome to my blog!

My name is Melanie and I’m an aspiring writer and photographer with a huge love for food and travel. I currently live in a scenic little town in the south of Germany where I attend law school, but I have previously studied abroad in both Canada and Norway and I at least partly contribute my mad case of wanderlust to these experiences.

I love exploring our beautiful planet every chance I get, but I also enjoy spending quiet days at home with a good book and some freshly baked cake. I love the great outdoors and rarely a weekend goes by where you won’t find me out in nature with my camera. I’m a country girl at heart and dream of one day living in a countryside mansion with a garden overflowing with flowers and fresh produce, but until then plan to see and experience as much of the world as possible. I’m also a big nerd and live for books like Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings, though I do try to hide this obsession behind Vogue and my desire to constantly amass more shoes.

I started this blog in 2011 after returning from a great trip to Scotland that left me wanting to share my stories and pictures with the world after my family got tired of listening to me and the blog has since grown to be both a chronicle of my adventures and a creative outlet that encourages me to work on both my writing and my photography.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog! :)
