Hi, I'm Yvonne. Travel addict. Guilty as charged. Right now I'm probably falling off a camel somewhere in a desert, getting a new tattoo from a monk in Thailand or am carrying my luggage through a river in the jungle. But just as well I could be sitting on my sofa in Berlin, in my pyjamas. Good girls to to heaven, bad girls go everywhere. Everywhere sounds much more promising. So be travelous and follow me!

  1. Up North
    Kings of Edelgran


    Northern land, red road to the end
    My heart is freezing, cold and tired feet
    However still moving, slowly, hardly
    Creed or weakness, or just a love’s madness
    Who knows, who knows?

    When the night is coming and the fear is crippling
    Escape up North
    When the cold is biting and the soul is crying
    Escape up North
    When I sway, when I fall but I can’t stop moving
    To the land where the sky is burning

    Escape up North
    Escape up North
    Escape up North
    To the land where this road leads my feet
