Hi! My name is Katharina. Like many of you, I am not a full-time traveller. I have a hypothetical 9 to 5 job and work in the heart of London. I also go through the tedious experience of commuting every day. Most of my income is spent in rent and English weather is one of my favourite complaints.
Seeing this, it would be easy to get caught into routine – But the truth is, routine is not really my thing.
I am active, curious and spontaneous. I hardly ever know where I will be or what I’ll be doing 2 weeks away from now – let alone 2 years. Since completing my Master in Finance in 2009, I have lived in Switzerland, Spain and the UK. In the same time, I have been trekking in Patagonia, climbing the Great Wall of China, scuba diving in Fernando de Noronha and hiking glaciers in New Zealand. All of this without quitting my full-time job.
While travel is my priority, I also enjoy spending my weekends exploring London’s neighborhoods, trying out gastropubs and restaurants and seeking new experiences.
Adventure is a state of mind.
It doesn’t require large amounts of time or money, but curiosity, enthusiasm and an open mind. Stepping out of our comfort zone and being eager to try something new, failing miserably and getting up to to try it again.
100 Miles Highway is where I share my adventures in expat life, travel and developing a global career.
And now the legal bit.
