About Lenja

I am Lenja and I am eighteen years old.
In the year of 2017 I graduated from school and I am currently traveling through some parts of Europe. At the moment, I am doing some farm work in Ireland (WWOOFing).

I started this blog with my best friend Janet, as a way to share our travel- adventures. That was still in 2015 and now I am sharing my adventures on this blog and hopefully soon other things about my life.

Now as this is supposed to be a page where you get to know me, I will just tell you a bit about myself.

I have always been fascinated with photography – cameras and taking pictures in general.
Since I owned my first camera as a young kid, I worked my way through a few different cameras but I am now very content with my first SLR.
I like to write and if you ever happen to meet me somewhere, I should at least have one notebook at hand. I have notebooks for all sort of things; poems, short stories … or just To-do-Lists.
I like to keep track of everything and my mind is always buzzing with new ideas or thoughts.
As I think you will notice in the future, I am a huge book lover. (mostly fiction)
If you can buy cheap books somewhere, I am probably nor that far away strolling through the lanes and I have in fact already now an endless list of books that I want to read in the future.
Oh and yes, not only am I writing this blog in English even though I am from Germany, I also mostly read English books.
All in all, I just have a passion for the English language.
In my free time, I used to work as a voluntary in a Fair Trade- shop and I am looking forward to doing more things like this once I will be staying in one place for Longe again.
I am always searching for new adventures. I would call myself a nature person who loves to be outside, especially in the mountains or at the seaside; strolling along for hours and hours.
Hiking. Camping. … you name it.
Beside that I also like to explore cities and get lost to see as much as I can. I love to go to flea markets not only for books but all types of things.
I set myself the challenge to go somewhere new each year.
Until now I have been to France, Spain, England, the Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Ireland and a few more European countries. Some day soon, I hope to be able to expense my adventures to countries outside of Europe.

In the future I wish to explore the world and follow my itchyfeets!

Hopefully you will tag along.
If you have any questions or thoughts, let me know.
