Hi, my name is Carolin and I am the traveller soul behind Breathing Travel. I was born in Germany in the year when the Berlin Wall fell, 1989. My parents raised me in a lovely small country town among chickens and corn fields. At the age of 16, I traded everything I knew for kangaroos and surf beaches and moved to Australia for a year to go to high school. My life has never been the same again and I am forever grateful for this opportunity.
Ever since, the road has been my home. With 19 I extensively backpacked through Australia, camped in a van for weeks, worked in a hotel in Perth, planted Strawberries on the Sunshine Coast and sold German pretzels in a bakery in Brisbane. I urged to see more. I snorkelled with the beautiful fish in Fiji, snowboarded through New Zealand and conquered the highest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Over the years, I have lived both in Singapore and Peru and travelled extensively around Southeast Asia. I visited the mysterious temples of Bali, jungle trekked through wild Borneo, sat between chickens on a local bus in Vietnam and witnessed the sunrise at Machu Picchu in Peru.
