What is “JUST travelous” for you? My 5 Favourite Fan Photos

4

I’ve never told you how I came to the name of my blog… it all started on March 19th 2010, it was the evening before my birthday, I was sick and bored and decided to finally sign up for Twitter. On this very day I was only just 30 (yes, I’m THAT old) and as I was thinking about a Twitter handle I thought about @just30something (genius, right?). Shortly after this the idea to start a travel blog was born and with this I needed a name for my baby. It had to be something with travelling and I wanted it to express the feeling I have when travelling. And then I was sitting there and thinking. HOW does this feel? Just good, amazing, uhm, awesome, uhm, great, fabulous. Fabulous. Travel. Travelous. It just feels travelous. That’s it.

This feeling you get after two days travelling, when every day life is so far away and it starts feeling like walking on clouds. When the sun is sparkling and everything is sparkling, inside and outside. When you’re having fun, just because the world is as beautiful as it is. And you’re a little bit drunk on life. That’s JUST travelous for me.

And that’s how @just30something became @JustTravelous

Some of you may ask why I’m telling you this… But some of you know exactly why. Those who subscribed to my newsletter (hint: it’s worth it!) know that I was raffling off a really cool camera. And I was asking you to send me pictures which are JUST travelous for you. Dude, I’m still amazed how many great pictures I got from you. Awesomesauce! That made me very happy! And actually for me all of you are winners, but yeah, there can be only one… But sometimes I’m nice and that’s why I have a little surprise for four other people! But Cordula is the one who won the Nikon coolpix S800c just because when looking at her picture I always felt like: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. SO WANNA DO THIS NOWWWWWWWWWWW.

One thing they all have in common: they give you the travel bug. They show you how much fun travelling can be. And we all need some fun in our lives.

What is JUST travelous for you?

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!
